“Open house for Mrs. E.M. Black was held on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 11, to celebrate her 80th birthday, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Deitz, Jr., of Northfield Road.  Mrs. Black wore a beautiful orchid telegraphed by her son, Lieut. Col. Ira Black and his wife from Camp Breckenridge, Ky. when he found he was unable to attend. A large bouquet of flowers from friends decorated her house. Telegrams and small gifts arrived often. Light refreshments were served. The party was given by her children, Mrs. F. N. Barlow and Mr. and Mrs. R.J. Black.”
