U. I), C. Entertained
The home of Mrs. A. G. Eakin was
the scene of a unique gathering Mon-
day afternoon—unique in the divers-
ity of the ages of the guests, which
ranged from that of the battle-
scarred veterans and their gentle
companions to that of the sweet
bloom of youthfulness of the young
maidens of the U. D. C.
From 3 until 5 the parlors were
crowded with guests who had eagerly
assembled to partake of the hospital-
ity for which this home is famous.
Mrs. Cunyus, president of the U. D.
C., conducted a program responded to
as follows: Piano solo, Mrs. Joe Lou
Adams; readings, Miss Mabel Pratt,
Mrs. A. G. Moore, Miss Abbott, Mrs.
Joe Lou Adams; vocal solo, Miss Sue
Mathis; piano duet, Misses Hunt.
While all numbers were greatly en-
joyed and heartily encored, the read-
ing by Miss Abbot of Durant State
Normal, which was very difficult in
its arrangement, calling for the im-
personation of five striking charac-
ters, showed careful preparation and
spoke well for ber director, Mrs. Joe
Lou Adams, who was accompanying
her to Oklahoma City where she was
to take part in a contest with stu-
dents of the other state normals.
At the close of the program, Mrs.
Eakin, assisted by Miss MarieO Eakin,
Mrs. Nunn, and the Misses Hunt,
served a delicious two-course lunch.
With Mr. and Mrs. Askew
.Mr. and Mrs. F. V. Askew delight-
fully entertained Thursday evening
at their home, 736 North University
The house was prettily decorated
pink and white carnations being the
cut flowers used, and the effect from
lighted pink candles was pleasing.
The prize, a beautiful liand-painted
plate, was won by Mrs. R. Leon
At a late hour a delicious luncheon
was served. The invited guests were:
Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Jones, Mr. and

Mrs. W. K. Dunn was hostess to
the Waukahoma club at her home on
North Market street Friday after-
noon, with Mrs. G. C. Wallace as
leader of the lesson on "China's
New Day." The subject of China
and her affairs being one of the
foremost matters of interest befort
the world today and the careful
preparation which Mrs. Wallace had
given the lesson combined to make
the afternoon's study especially en-
tertaining and instructive.
Mrs. Thomas Pryor Gore, the dis-
tinguished wife of Oklahoma's dis
anguished junior senator, was the
club's most welcome and honored
guest ,and she entered into the dis-
cussion of China's affairs in a most
entertaining manner. Her unassum-
ing cordiality «ind gracious simplicity
of manner charmed her hostesses and
made them realize that it was indeed
a treat to meet the wife of our
blind senator. Her casual remarks
concerning the American v/ife and
"yellow-white" children of an attache
of the Chinese legation were very in-
teresting and amusing. Oklahoma is
to bo congratulated on having her
type of woman to represent our com-
monwealth at Washington.
The club made brief but special
plans for the annual "social day" to
be held npxt Friday afternoon, when
Mrs. Ed Cofer will be hostess.
