Mrs. A.M. Cameron was hostess to Circle two of the Methodist Missionary society at her home here Tuesday night. An hour was spent discussing plans for the Circle, and each member took a lively interest in the discussion. The circle deeply regretted the loss of a very helpful member, one who was ever ready to do her part and more, Mrs. A. Auman, who has recently removed from town. A letter was written to Mrs. Auman. During the social hour two contests furnished amusement. Mrs. C.J. Temple and Miss Martha McKay won first honors in the first contest and Mrs. W.J. Cameron and Mrs. W.C. Leslie in the second. Dainty prizes were given. Delicious candy was passed by little Miss Marian, the attractive daughter of the hostess. Radio music was enjoyed throughout the evening. The guests were invited into the dining room where sandwiches and cocoa were served. The table was beautiful with its handsome cover, and centerpiece of cut flowers. Mrs. Cameron was assisted in entertaining by her sister, Miss Martha McKay, and the two proved charming hostesses. Mrs. Byrd and Mrs. Ridenhour invited the circle to hold its November meeting with them at the latter’s home.

Mrs. Bertie Matthews most graciously entertained circle number one of the Methodist Auxiliary at the regular monthly meeting at her home Tuesday evening. The attendance was unusually good, there being 15 members present. A very helpful devotional period was led by the chairman, followed by the usual business session, at which time much thought was given to home missionary work to be carried on during the winter months. After the transaction of all business a delightful social hour was given. A novel game “progressive word building” was played at four tables, which was very instructive and entertaining. After scores were totaled from neatly arranged missionary score cards it was found that Mrs. William F. Thompson held high score; she received a lovely linen handkerchief. Two players tied for the lowest, Mrs. W.H. Keith accepting the hint and Mrs. Paul Geschwind a bottle of “catch-up,” (catsup). Mrs. W.F. Wood was a guest of the circle. Mrs. Matthews was assisted by Mrs. Kate Brooks in serving delicious banana salad with wafers and hot coffee. Prior to departure an invitation was received from Mrs. D.G. Ridenhour and Mrs. V. Byrd to meet with their circle No. 2 at the home of Mrs. Ridenhour for the November meeting, which was highly appreciated and accepted with great pleasure.
