Surprise Birthday Party Monday Night

The family and friends of Mr. Marion Green surprised him on Monday night, April 4th, by gathering in his home for a party. After greetings and registering, Mrs. D. O. Smith, conducted games such as "Going Fishing," "Spinning the Bottle," Barnyard," and "Chewing the String for an Easter Egg."

Mr. Green cut the birthday cake, followed by his four brothers, who have passed the three score years with him. Delicious punch was served with the cake.

Many nice gifts were presented the host. He seemed to like a "Silver Dollar" presented by his brother, Wayne.

Green, Mr. Wayne Green and family, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Moss, Mrs. Spence, Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Holloway, Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Green, Kathleen Lowry, Mr. and Mrs. M. W. DeFee, Mr. and Mrs. W. W.
