==================================================
MINCO, OKLAHOMA,  THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1936
________________________________________________________

ALUMNI BANQUET WELL ATTENDED FRIDAY NIGHT

     The third annual banquet of the Alumni Association, composed of graduates of Minco High School, was held in the Minco high school auditorium Friday evening, May 22nd. Two hundred and five ex-graduates, their husbands and wives attended the fete.
     The class of 1931 was in charge of decorations. A Beach Party was the motif used in the scheme of decoration. A fish net of blue crepe paper covered the banquet tables, gold lifesavers for napkin rings, boats and fish to give the impression of a nautical scene, made the various classes feel the atmosphere of sailing onward through life as the sands of time ran swiftly through the glass.
     Superintendent and Mrs. J.E. Peery led the grand march, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Morgan, former superintendent. After the group arrived at their places, Marvin Woodworth delivered the invocation, followed by the Chairman, Sam McAdams, who in turn presented the toastmaster, J.E. Peery.
     The Alumni sang songs of fellowship, heartily applauded the vocal solos of Miss Alice Gentry and Edwin Dare; listened with a great deal of amusement and interest to the remarks of J. W. Morgan, concerning the antics of the original classes of Minco High School. Alex Woodworth, graduate of the first class, welcomed the class of 1936 into the Alumni association, and Merle Choice graciously responded to that welcome.
     The toastmaster called for impromptu speeches from Bus Wall and Hugh Fry.
     The election of officers was held with the mantle of chairman for the next year failing on the broad shoulders of Frank Wall and Charles Stephenson as secretary and treasurer.
      The Presbyterian Ladies Auxiliary served the banquet in four courses. Following the banquet a group made up a theatre party at a preview, while others attended a graduates dance in the Hume Hall.
     Everyone left with the feeling that they had spent a most Interesting and exceptional evening, vowing to be in attendance at each greater and finer banquet in coming years.
