MINCO ALUMNI HOLD BANQUET HERE FRIDAY P. M.

    A large crowd filled the Minco High School Auditorium to overflowing Friday night, May 27, when the Alumni Association held the fifth annual banquet for graduates of Minco High School.
   Blue and gold banners with the class numerals from 1917 to 1937 hung from the ceiling and from the center of the auditorium a great banner of blue silk, fringed with gold, bearing the large number 1938, for the incoming class, dominated the decoration scheme.
     The two long tables on either side of the room and the 30 bridge tables in the center were covered with blue and gold, with vases of green fern and colorful flowers, spaced at irregular intervals. J.E. Peery, superintendent of schools, and toastmaster, spoke to the group on their responsibility to the community, the state and the nation, welcoming them back to their old school. Mrs. Marvin Woodworth led the group in singing several songs and then the chairman, Fred Phelps, of Marlow, presented Roy Kunkle of Duncan, who gave two excellent vocal selections. A number of short talks were given by various members of the association and Edwin Dare sang two songs that were received with great applause. G.B. Hurley of Chickasha was elected chairman of the association for 1938-39 and Charles Stephenson was re-elected secretary and treasurer. The group voted on a motion made by Marvin Woodworth, "That those who had finished the work given by the school before 1917 be included in the Alumni Association.
