H. Scholzen, the host, carves a ham for the noon lunch. 'Hes a Jolly GoodFellowrj^ For the third year, A. H. Scholzen was host at a neighborhood party at his home on the South Green Bay Rd., and several hundred neighbors and friends came to spend the day. The buffet lunch at noon required 100 pounds of ham, and the host provided 80 pounds of hamburger and hot dogs for supper, hoping that supplies would last. In addition to picking up the tab for the food, he furnished all the pop, ice cream and candy that the younger generation could hold, and installed a bar in the garage for the oldsters. Preparations for the party occupied Scholzen for several months. Many of his guests received their invitations through personal door-to-door calls. Last year, Scholzen undertook to bake the cakes for the picnic, a job he bypassed this year when wives in the neighborhood insisted on contributing something. Scholzen finished party preparations, including a sun- break in front of the garage and a large parking lot, shortly after midnight Saturday. Early Sunday morning guests began arriving, some for a quick visit, most to remain the entire day enjoying his hospitality. Last year, Scholzen was so busy attending to his guests that he never did get around to having any of the ham dinner. Around 7 p.m., he realized he was hungry. Luckily, there was something left for him. A hot dog and a bun. A -• Jomiuil-Tlmt'O I'luilns liy Chiirln, 3.

Neighborhood refrigerators were pressed into service for storage, although the food was consumed with spectacular speed. Women insisted on supplying the salad when Host Scholzen reluctantly admitted "I'm not so good at making salads."
