Ruth Rorick was the hostess to a number of her small friends Friday afternoon, the occasion being her ninth birthday. The children enjoyed sandwiches, ice cream and cake, and candy, the tables being prettily trimmed in pink and white, with a big birthday cake as the centerpiece, duly furnished with candles and embellished with the name of the lady in whose honor the function was given. Games outdoors and an auto ride finished a happy afternoon.
Those present were Elizabeth Reid, Melola Rowe, Mehulda Salmons, Harriet Salmons, Margery Salmons, Rebecca Salmons, Ruth Carter, Elizabeth Spencer, Ruth and Helen Rorick.
