1934 - The Fourth Reunion of The Newton Family

 The fourth reunion of the Newton family and close Newton -in- laws was held the 14th of July at Fred Newtons woods.
Many were late in arriving and some didn't come which is even worse; but when all present started their antics such things, as being tardy were forgotten.

  Dinner was served shortly after noon.
 We "gorged" and laughed then "gorged" some more until feeling quite satisfied with the world and ourselves we left the table and started for some sort of amusement.

 Frank Heart entertained several with his music. Others played "horseshoes" or "quoits" but this was difficult as the shoes would sometimes become burred in the leaves and it would require quite a bit of diligent searching before the game could be resumed.

 A ballgame was played between the "Beavers" and the "Moose".
The teams were rather inadequate in number but the scores were a little better.

 The Beavers won with a score of 14 to 10.
Frank, Kenneth, Harold, Naomi, Charles W. and Dewitt were in the winning team.
Lois, Mabel, Cedric, Freddie, Vernon and George were the losers.

Charlie was unable was unable to play because of his broken arm.
Mrs. Emma J. Harrington (75 years) also had a broken arm but doesn't play ball so it didn't hinder her much  while away in her time of talking and listening.

 About 4:30 we cleaned up our duffle and while many had to go home the rest went to Deer River Dam to the swimming hole.
