A surprise party was held on August 30 at the Wildcat Inn and planned by friends, who spend their winters in Arizona. A poem, “Through 50 years,” composed by Mrs. Earl Zille, was read as were two poems, “Mother Tells Her Version: and “Father Gives His Version.” The balance of the evening, after a meal, was spent in card playing.
