Miss Shannon Cochran, who is soon to become the bride of Chas. (Snooks) Bilbo, was given a shower and reception at the home of Mrs. Joe Brown Tuesday evening. Mrs. Brown was assisted by Mrs. M. G. Downing, Mrs. Warner Adair, Mrs. Ernest Pitchlynn, Mrs. Homer Freeny, Mrs. Irene Dodd and Mrs. J. H. McCulman.
Guests were received at the door by Mrs. Brown, who presented them Mrs. Cochran, mother of the bride-to-be. Mrs. Bilbo, Mrs. Kick, and Miss Ruth Cochran pressed over the guest book. Mrs. Homer Freeny and Mrs. Myron Stone served at the refreshment table.
Miss Cochran left Wednesday morning by plane from Dallas for Los Angles where she will be married upon her arrival to Mr. Bilbo, who is with the U. S. Navy.
The Brown home was beautifully decorated with fresh flowers. A large number of guests called during the evening, vouching for the newly-weds-to-be much happiness.
Miss Shannon is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Roy L. Cochran, is a graduate of Caddo high school and Southeastern and attended Oklahoma University two terms.
