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
