perents, Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Gzrvley,
n last Thursday afternoon. Twenty
two little folks enjoyed the occasion..

an hour. Then Mrs. Gravley called
them into the dinning room, around
two large tables and served ice
ream and good old fashioned pound
cake. This room was decorated in

of Halloween, and the baskets on
each table carried out the color n
scheme of black and yellow. De- p
lightful mints were served and sou
venirs of black cats and owls were
given. The children all enjoyed the o
games, particularly pinning on the
big black cat's tail. Sue McFall was
