The United Brethern Sunday School boasts of the oldest regular attendant at

Larimer of West Twenty-first street, rarely ever misses a session and yet
she is 90 years old. Yesterday was her ninetieth birthday and as she
stepped forward with her birthday offerring she was met by the two youngest
members of the school, Beryl Graham, her great grand daughter, and Ruth
Sherer, little daughter of the Sunday School superintendent who presented
her with a beautiful bouquet of carnations in behalf of the school Grandma
made a short talk to the school, thanking them for their Kindness to her.
