Members of the mechanical department of The Free Lance-Star were hosts at a supper Monday night in the American Cafe in honor of Geo. L. Hunter, Jr., of the business department of the paper, who is about to become a Benedict.
The dinner, engineered by ‘Ikey’ Middleton, sterotyping ace of the force, was delightfully served. It consisted of soup, chicken, asparagus tips, potatoes, celery, olives, coffee and dessert.
Adhering to the unwritten rule followed at gatherings of newspaper men, no speeches were permitted but informally Mr. Hunter received the congratulations and sincere good wishes of his fellow workers.
The dinner came off without incident except that N. B. Kinsey, ‘legman,’ mistook soup served in a cup with a handle for coffee, and put sugar in it.
Those present were: Mr. Hunter; Bernard Jackson and Perry A. Thompson, linotypes; Clarence A., ‘Rats’ Lewis, make-up; Col. Harold Tompkins Ballard, linotype; I. H. ‘Ikey’ Middleton, sterotype; N. B. Kinsey, ‘legman’; Roy Morris, circulation; Chester B. Goolrick, editorial department.
