f»AGETWO THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. FRIDAY, SEPT. 29, 1939. SOCIETY Manistee associates of the J. C. Penney company were entertained Tuesday evening at a dinner, given by the Ludington associates, losers of a shoe sale contest between the two stores. A delicious dinner was served at Hobby Crest resort to 45 persons. 16 of whom were associates of the Manistee store. During the evening, the guests were entertained, frith a program of ac- cordibn musife, played by Albert Meny. After the dinner Maurice Wilson, employe of the Ludington store, sang the solos "Over the Rainbow" and "My Last Goodbye," accompanied by Mr. Meny. In token of their victory in the recent sale, the Manistee associates were presented with a pair of gold slippers as a trophy. It was decided that the competition will be an annual event and that the Manistee store will hold the trophy until its title is disputed. As a feature of the evening, Roscoe C. Ely, manager of the local store, was presented with a large birthday cake topped with 21 candles, from his employes in horior of his recent birthday anniversary. Manistee associates, said Mr. Ely, are still speculating on the possibility there might have been an omission in the number. After the supper, community singing wals enjoyed and pinochle, with prizes for ladies and men, was played. First prize for the ladies was won by Mrs. Ludlow of Manistee, second by Mrs. Trosper of Manistee and third by Mrs. R. c. Ely of Ludington; while first prize for the men was won by Mr. Adams of the local store, second by Mr. Trosper of Manistee and third by Mr. Gregones of the Ludington division The event, which is the first function of its kind, was highly successful and did much in increasing friendliness between the Ludington and Manistee associates, said Mr. Ely. It is believed that it will be anticipated as a yearly event. Local Amusements Mrs. B. S.
