vited to take charge, putting on the
initiation of new members; Mrs.

artiltA a mj ant nooi anH thu urnrrhv
matron, Mrs. George E. Lundfburg, In
a few well chosen words, made them
welcome, and voiced expressions of
love and appreciation In behalf of the
Star members. Under the good of
the order, Mrs. Barnes, Mrs. Cass,
gave a song, the words of which were
composed toy 'Mrs. Lundburg. The
song -was a series of humorous com
pliments to the past worthies, clever
ly rendered and receiving. enthusias
tic applause. In response to the en
core the witty four surprised Mr.
Lundburg with a verse of their own
composing congratulatory to her. The
entire company was then asked to
join with the quartette In singing
"Should Auld Acquaintance Be For
got?" All were then Invited to the ban
quet room, the grand march being
led by the past worthies. As the
doors were thrown open the banquet
hall appeared a veritable bower of
pink and white blossoms, gorgeous
in the artistic arrangement of the
delicate blooms. A large table with
covers laid for 28 found place in the
center of the hall at which the past
worthies and several charter mem
bers were seated. White candles with
pink shades cast a bewitching glow
over the delicate china, cut-Rlass and
shining silver. The color scheme
was pink and white throughout. A
white May Pole twined with smilax
graced the center of the table with
pink streamers to the place cards.
Pink and white apple blossoms and
tiny stfirhonnet babies dressed In pink
were favors with four page folders
containing a list of the worthies
from 1893 to 1917 and a list of the
charter members, for souvenirs. Nu
merous other tables accomodated the
other Star members. The lunch con
sisted of chicken salad with wafers,
pink and white ambrosia dresBed In
whipped cream, pink and white cakes
and coffee.
At the conclusion of this dainty re
past H. C. Bobzlen proposed a toast
to the worthy matron,' Mrs. Lund
burg. and alt responded, rising In
her honor and drinking to her health
and happiness. At the close of the
evening all were delightfully sur
prised In a mtrth-provoklng way as
old-time pictures of the honored
guests were shown on a screen In the
chapter room. Those receiving the
greatest surprise being the original
of those same pictures.
The honored guests were called
for In cars and taken to and from the
scene of this merry May party, the
memory ot which will remain a treas
ure in he hearts of those present
for many a day, and much honor and
credit Is most worthily lavished on
the matron and her faithful com
mittees. "
