A SURPRISE TO THE DIFFINS IS GIVEN THEM AT "EL NIDA" On Wednesday evening, February ISth, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Diffin, at their ho~Ic, "El Nklo," received one of the most agreeable surprises since moving into the new house. Twenty- three of their friends franled a sur- prise party. (So closely was it kept a secret that even the editor of the Catalina Islander did not learn of it), :and walked in upon them at 8:30 p. m. For about fifteen minutes the Diffins were lost in the bewilderment of ex- citement, but after they became settled to the fact that the crowd was all there, and their escape taken care of, the dogs, Pal and Peggy put to bed, the stage was set for Mr. Mickey Ahern to make his bnpromptu present- ~tion speech. Mickey made a fine talk. The floor lamp which he pre- sented as a token of the visiting guests esteem and friendship, was very beau- tiful and artistic. Mr. and Mrs. Diffin were so overcome with surprise that they were speechless. (Editor's note: Imagine that [) The evening was spent listening to the radio; talking over olden times, and how Mr. Payette fooled Harry by going up earlS, to get distance and then, just when it was time to meet the others, departed for h:ome, saying: "Your radio is no good; me for bed," so you can picture the look on Harry's face when fifteen minutes later the crowd walked in unheralded. Refreshments were served, and ~t twelve o'clock everybody departed for home. Gee! it was some surprise--but a happy one. The following ladies and gentlemen made up the surprise party: Mr.and Mrs. Charles Hmnmond, Miss Elaine Hammond, Mr. John S. Hammond and Miss Sarah Hammond of Mattapoisett, Mass., Mr. and Mrs. Win.
