Many Young Folks
Donald Millar, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Arch B. Millar, entertained a
number of young people last even
ing at a masquerade dance, given in
the gymnasium of the St. Paul's
Episcopal Church, decorated for the
occasion with streamers forming a
canopy of blue and white. The lights
were dimmed with shades of red
crepe paper and pennants of various
sorts covered the walls. The host
was disguised as a girl .wearing a
dress of blue serge with white col
lar and cuffs, high-heeled, patent
leather pumps and a blonde wig.
Part of the fun of the evening came
through Morley Baker, who, clad in
a Spanish suit of blue velvet, pre
tended that he was host, according
to a pre-arranged scheme, thereby
confusing the guests.
One of the most pleasing features
of the event was an Egyptian in
cense dance by Miss Lucy-Ord Kem
per, a dancer of great ability, whose
appearance is always anticipated
with keen pleasure.
The costumes worn by the young
people were extremely clever and in
most cases the disguise was so per
fect that the identity of nearly every
guest remained a secret from the
others until unmasking time. Those
present were the Misses Mary
Frances Rockafellow, Katherine
Wharton, Mary Rodney, Betty Herr,
Elizabeth Longaker, Dorothy Whit
taker, Dorothy Bushnell, Pauline

were whetted by a drive through
the brisk air. thoroughly enjoyed.

on the porch to hear an interesting
history of that part of the country
( through which they were journeying,
given by Dr. Samuel Z. Shope. chair
man of the entertainment commit
tee. Dr. Shope, who so cleverly
planned the day's pleasure in every
detail, told of Dauphin and Lebanon

lore, some places settled by the
Scotch-Irish and others by Germans,
whose descendants are now among
the important families of the coun
try. Among these settlers his own
ancestor, one Parker, was killed
when John Harris went to the res

through the great river, Parker's
horse was shot beneath him and
Harris drew him from the water and
to the back of his own horse. An

saving John Harris' life.

gathering wild flowers were features
of pleasure before the party started
