The Caddo Herald
November 7, 1913
Last Friday night the Civic Club entertained their friends at the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Semple, south of town.
The guests were met at the door by a number of witches and were compelled to drink of “Madero’s Blood” before they were allowed to enter. Then they were shown to rooms upstairs where all were masked and draped with sheets. The evening entertainment was in keeping with the occasion. The “magic mirror” was there where each guest could look into the face of the one they love best, the fortune teller was there, and the witches (club members) were here, there and everywhere, seeing to it that there was not a lull in the entertainment of their guests and that none lacked attention.
The house was tastily decorated with black cats and bats and was lighted with Jack O’Lanterns. It was a “spooky” occasion and the more timid of the guests entered the “cat and bat” room with fear and trembling.
Miss Florence Benedict of Muskogee, who has one of the sweetest soprano voices in the state, delighted those present with several vocal selections. Others of the guests added to the evening’s entertainment by giving vocal and instrumental selections.
The refreshments consisted of fruit salad, sandwiches, pumpkin pie, coffee, cake and orange ice. Upon this occasion the Civic Club members maintained their reputation as ideal entertainers.
