A Pleasant Meal

Mrs. Myrtle Standich met with Mr. Walter Collier and Mrs. Ida Willaby at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Yamin. A simple dinner was planned. The attire was casual. Mr. Walter Collier and Mr. Henry Yamin both wore sensible suit jackets and ties with matching slacks. Mrs. Myrtle Standich, Mrs. Ida Willaby, and Mrs. Henry Yamin all chose sensible dresses. Of these dresses, Mrs. Ida Willaby's and Mrs. Henry Yamin's pattern choices were of the floral variety, whilst Mrs. Myrtle Standich's pattern was of tropical birds. Though this could be described as uncomfortable, Mrs. Myrtle Standich could be said to have made the best of the situation and even to have carried it off with minor grace.

Dinner was served at five o'clock and consisted of a pleasant salad of assorted greens and a roast beef of particular renown to all present which was served with a dollop of mashed potatoes. After dinner a most sincere portion of vanilla ice cream was enjoyed by all. Warm Earl Grey and Chamomile teas were served after dessert.

Conversation consisted of a reasonable observation of both weather and property prices by Mr. Henry Yamin just before the serving of salad. This was followed by a refreshing commentary on gardening tips by Mrs. Ida Willaby, no doubt inspired by the pleasant salad. With ice cream, came cordial chat of family whereabouts, which could certainly have been said to have warmed the hearts and chilled, in simultaneous fashion, all that were present. And in closing, with the surprise of multiple choices in tea, came the most appropriately surprising and lively dialogue about how the sport of boxing has never had a champion or a character as entertaining as Cassius Clay or Muhammad Ali, whom Mrs. Henry Yamin and Mr. Walter Collier clarified was the same person.
