Miss Jean Hoevet entertained the girls with whom she is associated in the Hammond Commercial Wall Paper mill at a Christmas party in the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. E.P. Hoevet, last Monday night, December 19. Christmas decorations made the living and dining rooms especially attractive. A three-course dinner was served by the light of red tapers at each end of the table and the added glow from the small candles that, with miniature-Christmas tree cards, marked the places. On the underside of each card were directions for the treasure hunt which followed dinner. From 10:30 until 11:00 o'clock, after games and the exchange of gifts, Miss Hoevet and her guests sang carols by a brilliantly light [sic] Christmas tree. Miss Hoevet is a bookkeeper in the Hammond manufactory office.
