The rest of the evening was spent a games and visiting capped by a fine covered- dish lunch. Friday noon the L. A. S. served a community luncheon which had been deferred from a former date m a unique setting of birthdav groups. Tables were set and divided in sections identified by miniature trees symbolical of the various months by the calender year- December, by tiny Christmas-cau- dles; April, miniature umbrellas; September, miniature school-books- November, cornucopias, etc. Those present seated themselves at tables according to their respective birthdays, one or more representatives from each group later contributing a number to a program full of surprises. The ornamental trees were made up by the president, Mrs. Fred Plumb, assisted by her husband and Mr. and Mrs. James Knoll. The trees of the winter season were appropriately frosted with snow, which has a story of its own, i. e., ribbing which Mr. Plumb got from merchants and others in his effort to locate artificial snow. None approached let the opportunity pass to remind him that there was plenty of natures own product outside The whole affair was just too run of happiness and good enter- f A a ,! nment to be wel1 described.
