Miss McEachern was the recipient of many nice and useful gifts. After playing several amusing games the guests were led to the dining room where a tasty supper was served, consisting of chicken, pickles, sandwiches and other delicacies. A large birthday cake adorned the center of the table Illuminated by sixteen tiny candles, thus revealing to all present that Miss McEachern was “sweet sixteen.” The guests departed at a late hour, wishing Miss McEachern many more happy birthdays.
