==================================================
MINCO, OKLAHOMA,  THURSDAY, MAY 30, 1935
________________________________________________________

ALUMNI BANQUET WELL ATTENDED FRIDAY NIGHT

    The second annual banquet of the Association, composed of ex-graduates of Minco high school, was held in the high school auditorium Friday evening, May 24th. Two hundred and three ex-graduates, their husbands and wives attended the fete.
    The class of 1930 was in charge of the decoration, and the school colors of purple and gold were carried out in the table and stage decorations. Small boats constructed of cardboard and covered with purple and gold bronze paper masts of candles and class numerals on their prows formed the centerpiece of each table from '17 to '34. The graduating class of this year had as its table decoration a large boat of wire whose sides were covered by fresh pansies, carrying out the color scheme. Two large gold candles with cellophane sails completed a most realistic ship effect. Potted plants, ferns and bowls of seasonal blossoms were tastefully arranged around the walls and stage of the banquet hall.
    As the group came into the room, the effect of candlelight on silver and linen gave a regal mellow beauty to the scene. The toastmaster, Supt. J.E. Peery, immediately took charge and a most interesting program began.
    The crew sang songs of the sea, a gob and gobette gave an excellent imitation of Cab Calloway and a rag-doll dance; four lonesome tars rendered a chantey; an old pirate (Fred Phelps) spun yarns of yesterday; two sailor's sweethearts sang a duet; Roy Kunkle of the Shawnee high school music department, gave his favorite song "The Barefoot Trail" a thrilling and beautiful treatment. E.T. Foster of Oklahoma City, told of things that happened and things to happen.
    The chairman, Alex Woodworth, spoke at length and wound up the business session of the gathering with the election of officers. Samuel McAdams was elected Chairman for the ensuing year and Charles Stephenson continued his post of secretary and treasurer.
    The banquet was prepared, and served by the Presbyterian Ladies Auxiliary, in four lovely courses. All in all, this was perhaps the most thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining banquet ever held in the town of Minco. At least to date, there has been no adverse comment, and the majority of- those present report an especially interesting time. Those present were: Supt. and Mrs. J.E.
