Lois Barrett’s Birthday

Tuesday, March 5, was little Miss Lois Barrett’s fourth birthday and she was most pleasantly surprised when six little girl friends with their dolls came to spend the afternoon with her.

At the proper time, the windows were darkened and four candles surmounting an nice birthday cake were lighted and the girlies were served with delicious ice cream and generous slices of cake.

Those in attendance were:  Mary Lou Wells, of Baxter Springs, Jeannie Dale Logan, Gertrude and Lucile Curtin, Virginia Miller and Velma Loucks.  Mrs. H. O. Wells was also there and helped to care for and entertain the little girls.
