Between thirty and forty friends of Miss Alberta Malcolm gathered at Sylvan Lake on Wednesday evening last for a farewell to Miss Malcolm on the eve of her departure for Dauphin, Man., to take up training for a nurse in the General Hospital there.

After dancing for a time, the company did ample justice to the delicious "eats" and then gathered around a bonfire at Lower Camp which was the envy and admiration of the whole rising generation.

After a brilliant oration by Chas Weston, in which he feelingly expressed the regret of the entire company at Miss Malcolm's departure, the guest of the evening was presented with a beautiful leather club bag, as a remembrance of Red Deer friends.

Roy Malcolm responded ably on behalf of his sister.

Miss Malcolm left on Saturday for Calgary. Miss Elsie McEwan left yesterday to meet her in Calgary and they will proceed to Winnipeg together. Miss McEwan will spend a few weeks visiting at her home in Ontario before returning to resume her duties as C.P.R. telegraph agent.

The Excelsior Class of Knox Sunday School had a party at the home of Mrs Wm Grier and presented Miss Malcolm and Miss Ida Johnson with Eversharp pencils. Miss Johnson is leaving to train for a nurse at Edmonton.

The News extends best wishes to these young people for success in their chosen profession.8
