E.R. Headley had a birthday on Monday evening, April 3rd, when he confessed to being 65 years old. Coupled with the celebration of that event, and perhaps the most pleasant part of the celebration was the surprise sprung by about seventy-five members of the womens' adult bible class which he has taught for many years in the Methodist church.

Mr. Headley was attending a meeting of the trustees of the church and at the close of the meeting was induced to visit the church basement to inspect certain improvements to the heating plant. Without warning he was ushered into the presence of the party of ladies assembled and surrounding a seven story birthday cake with candles to the number of 65 bravely burning in his honor.

Mrs. Frank L. Moore in a very happy address told Mr. Headley in how high regard he was held by the members of the class and in their name presented him with a handsome gold headed umbrella, appropriately engraved. Mr. Headley was so taken aback that he was speechless for a moment, but finally managed to stammer his thanks and to assure them of the pleasure he had taken in the association through the many years of his service as the teacher of the class.
