Neighborly Club Party
One of the most enjoyable social affairs extended to the Neighborly Club was a party at the J. O. Miller home Thursday evening, given by Mesdames Spahr, Gray and Miller in honor of Mrs. Fred Williams and Mrs. Clyde Wright who are leaving Skidmore, and the new members who have recently been taken into the Club.

As the guests arrived they were served punch in the reception hall then taken into the parlors where music was furnished by the victrola. After the arrival of all the guests a motor car contest was held. After this the ladies were invited to leave the parlors and were then given papers upon which was written the stunt they would find their partner doing as they re-entered the rooms. Needless to say, Jess Pugh, Charley Chaplin, Mr. Castle and many other renowned gentlemen were readily recognized. Delicious refreshments were then served after the exchange of menu cards until the menu was complete.

During this hour clever toasts were given and plates were presented to the departing club members.

The home was beautifully decorated and the color scheme of pink and white was carried out.

At a late hour as the guests were departing they were each presented a beautiful carnation.

The guest list included: Porter, Clyde Wright, Fred Barber, John Barber, Will Barber, G. L. Owen, W. G. Reynolds, Alex Wells, H. W. Montgomery, Gordon Bennett, R. A. Walker, W. H. Hoblitzell, Dr. Manning, Mark Loucks, and Mesdames, C. Hoblitzell, Gertrude Hickman, Fred Williams, Misses Mattie Tarpley, Fannie Galloway, Beatrice Sewell, and Mr. A. C. Dodds.
