And .they celebrated their parents' fortieth wedding anniversary and the family reunion with a round of good times— mostly in the Kinsey fami'Jy home on North Minnesdta street here. Mr. and Mrs. E.

He's also a former baseball pitcher; .2 The youngest of the clan, Phil, was only six weeks old when all of the Kinseys were .together the last time. So the kid's decided to do something about it. They planned the get-together, and, those not living here left 'their families at home and descended on thte Kinsey home Friday, April 14. The din of 'Chatter and fun didn'.t die •until almost three days later. . , ',y, Names and addresses of .the Kinseys, shown in the above photo;, are: front row, left to right, Dolores (Mrs. Eldon Hovey), Hampton^ Phil, at home, Mr. and Mrs. Kinsey, Tom, Ames, and 1 Elaine (Mrs. Dick Pool), Denver, Colo.
