Married, in Tecumseh, at the home of
the bride's mother, Mrs. D. F. West, on
Wednesday, May the fifteenth, Miss
Marie Crawford to Mr. Harry Follmer of
cirle. the clow of the Japanese lant
erns, and the laughter and conversation
must have seemed like a vision of fairy
land or a page from the Arabian Nights
to the Ciceronian initiee left stranded
on our shore without carfare or wings.
The refreshments were served in five
courses out on the lawn. There were
spoons galore. When these had re
stored the good humor of the company
they adjourned to the house, where
those bo inclined danced. With the
class patron saint, Mr. Congdon, as
toastmaeter several toasts were pro
posed, serious and witty. Mr. Albert
Levy spoke of the Advocate oflico as he
has known it, his subject being, "The
Advocate oflico as a spoon-holder;"
Miss Alice Auld displayed her knowl
edge of "Ties;" Miss Marguerite Pills
bury spoke of "Sophomore Victories;"
Miss Camille Hall of "Our fads;" and
last of all Mr. Congdon proposed "The
Health and Wealth of the Class of
1003." While the refreshments were
being served, Messrs. Johnson and
Hawley were the envy of all beholders,
but when toasts were called for, pre
ferred the seclusion of the pantry. The
success of the party is due to the earn
est efforts of the committee in charge.
May we always have such success in
future entertainments! We hope that
again in some future time we may en
joy the hospitality of Mr. and Mrs.
JohnBon. The Advocate.
