MISS TOW ENTERTAINS.
On Thursday, Nov. 16, the residence
of Mrs. D. F. McKlnne was the scene
of a.mpst delightful social event when
MlssNrafc. Mae Yow, assisted by Mrs.
McKlnn^; entertained the members of
the EdwmW-Puller Cluo and othor
guests. The evening was chilly but
Its chill was soon forgotten In -.he
warmth of the room, second only to
the warmth of the welcome extended
to each genet by the hostesses.
The rooms were attractively deco
rated in large cut chrysanthemums
and potted ferns.
-- When all the guests had assembled
the club wis called to m der by the
president, Mrs. O. A. Ricks It Is
Interesting to note that In so doing
the president used a gavel made of a
bit'of cherry weed that was a part of
a piece of furniture from the home of
Edwin Fuller. This gavel was pre
sented to the club by his slsttr In tok
en of her appreciation of the club's
honoring her brother's memory in the
select'.on of its name.
After the reading of the minutes and
roll call the program for the afternoon
was carried out as follows. Mrs. J,
A, Hodges opened the program with a
very Interring account of "Florence
Nightengale and her Wor*." A plant
solo. Heller's Tarantello, was sweetly
rendered by Miss 8. T. Williams.
This was followed by "The Story of
Jenny Lind." by Miss Annie Oreen.
Miss Ruth Allen and Mrs. Ilodges,
gave an Instrumental duet.
As Current Topic Mrs. Ricks read
"A Soldier Home from the War"; an
account of the Armistice Hay colebra
tlon In Washington City In honor of
the nation's unknown hem. A vocal
duet, The Carmina Arranged for two
voices, sung by Miss 8. T Williams
and Mrs. W. E. White closed whit
everyone considered had- been an in
teresting and Instructtve program.
Miss Yow, assisted by Miss Lillian
Howell, then served tnlcken salad on
crisp lettuce with the appropriate
accompaniment of mayonatse, beaten
biscuit, olives, cheese rosettes, cofloo
and salted almonds.
The club then adjourned to meet
next lime with Mrs. K. K. Allen.
