Harold Employees as Hosts Presentation to Managing Director
The employees of the Harold, in all the different departments, including everyone from the devil up to “Dad” gathered last night for a social evening in the hall in the Harold block. There were a few friends present with their families and a good programme of vocal and instrumental music was given by the Harold “angels” who performly are worthy musicians. P. J. Nolan who was at once time on the editorial staff though he has fallen from grace, and now devotes his time to mere law, was present for old times’ sake and delivered one of his characteristic little talks. Of course it was good.
The principal event of the evening was the reading of an add??? To J. J. Young M.L.A. managing director of The Harold and the presentation to Mr. and Mrs. Young of a parlor cabinrt from the Harold staff.
This was a case of surprise but Mr. Young responded feelingly, thanking the boys for their expressions of good wishes, and for the splendid gift to Mrs. Young and himself.
