Thanksgiving German at The Holly Inn
is a Pleasant Prophesy.
Novel JFigrures, Unique and Varied
Entertain a JLarg-e Company
of Village Ciuests.
IIollv Inn was made
memorable by the Gei
man of the evening, the
occasion beiner one of
the merriest and pret
tinsf. jiflkirs of the kind ever held
here. Novel figures, unique and va
ried, entertained a big company, the
entire Village being present either to
dance or watch the dancers. As
nrnnhesr for the seasons series, of
which it is the first, it is a pleasant one.
The fun began at nine o'clock with a
novelty in the form of a grand march in
which many who did not dance took
part, closing with introductions and a
two step which ended in a floor favor
figure. , Various figures followed, Mr.
Carlisle .Tuttle of Naugatuck, Conn.,
and Miss Elizabeth Stifel of Wheeling,
West Virginia, leading.
Araonff the novelties was the muff
figure in which couples selected un
known partners by grasping hands
through a huge muff, amusing complica
tions resulting.
Another new figure was the envelope
figure, in which young women distrib
uted envelopes, each bearing varied in
scriptions, such as "Please dance with
me," "Please select a partner," or "Please
go back and sit down."
There was also the tennis ball figure
in which an over supply of men struggled
for the possession of a tennis ball which
ncemt a dance, and the candle figure in
which the men were called upon to cross
the room, light a candle and return to an
insufficient supply of young women, the
first to arrive winning partners.
The favors were positively fascinating
and wonderfully varied because one of
the conditions of an invitation was that
each participant should bring five. As a
result there was an assortment of about
everything suitable to be found in the
local stores : Violets, roses, carnations :
confections, tinsel ropes and aigrettes;
paper ropes and bells ; animals, dolls and
children's toys.
Mrs. Andrew I. Creamer presided at
the favor table graciously, at intermis
sion refreshments were served, and The
Holly Inn Orchestra, Trev. Sharp, direc
tor, provided music.
Many beautiful gowns were seen upon
the floor, among them a dainty creation
