Mrs. J.C. Walling gave a dinner party last Wednesday night in honor of her husband, J.C. Walling, and her son-in-law, J.P. Stanton, both of whom celebrated their birthdays. The George Washington motif was used in all the appointments, and stock, hyacinth and fresias [sic] in colors of red, white and blue, made an attractive centerpiece. The long white candles in silver holders were adorned with flags and the large birthday cake held red, white and blue candles.
Among those present with Mr. and Mrs. Walling and Mr. and Mrs. Stanton were Messrs. and Mesdames George Walling and Richard Stanton, Mrs. Harriet Baker and daughter Evelyn of Livingston, Mrs. Lulu Tyrrell and Miss Marjory Tyrrell, Miss Jessie Walling and Preston Willitson.
