The Fair Play
Friday, March 10, 1961
"Monday was a day that will occupy a prominent place in the memory of Miss Lulu Naumann, one of Ste. Genevieve's estimable and darling young ladies, for years to come. On that day she commenced the seventeenth year of her journey through life, and the event was celebrated in grand style by her many friends. At an early hour of the evening a large crowd of young ladies and gentlemen assembled at the residence of Mrs. Julia ANDRÉ, Miss Lulu's aunt, who had been previously informed of the intention of the young folks and had made preparations for the reception and guests. Miss Lulu was then sent for. Wondering what in the world Aunt Julia wanted, the young lady merrily tripped over to her aunt's house and on entering the house, was almost overcome with surprise and astonishment by being told that her friends had gathered there for the purpose of celebrating her birthday. She was equal to the occasion, however, and soon mingled with the crowd and assisted in making the evening one of merriment and enjoyment to all. Several of our best musicians being present, dancing was soon commenced, and kept up for several hours. An excellent supper was prepared to which all present did ample justice. At a late hour the young folks, singing and laughing in the flush of youth, wended their way homeward, pleased with the evening's fun. Miss Lulu is quite a favorite with her companions and they, together with this paper, wish her a long, joyful life and hope that her future birthdays will be as free from care and passed as the one just celebrated."
