Notes for DELIA JOYCE LOCK: Lake Charles American-Press, June 14, 1919: Miss Lock Entertains. A beautiful social affair for the younger set was the dance last evening with which Miss Delia Lock entertained her friends at her home in Broad street. White and gold were the colors of the decorative motif in the spacious rooms and a wonderful profusion of shasta daisies were used in its development. In this happy environment the bright gathering of young people enjoyed dancing to the accompaniment of selections by the Orphium orchestra until a late hour. The charming hostess was assisted in receiving her guests by Master Frank Ray Lock and Miss Bertha Moss, who gave the dainty dance programs out, and Mrs. Tarkington was assisted in entertaining and serving her daughter's guests by Mesdames Fred G. Lock, M. P. Paret, C. D. Moss and Miss Julia Moss. Throughout the hours punch was enjoyed and later a delicious ice course in which the color combination of yellow and white was again emphasized. Miss Lock's guests were: Misses Mildred Patterson, Marie Richard, Della Bel, Helen Paret, Myrtle Uhry, Marion Uhry, Margaret Crawford, Lucille Malboy, Mary Belle Foster, Selma Meyer, Alice Bradsley, Ruth Reinaur, Audry Perkins, Ruth Landry, Alice Richard, Beatrice Richard, Hlen Banker, Bonnie Fisher, Alice Smith, Audry Smith, Irene Musser, Sidney Lawton, Sallie Martin, Gergrude Chalkley, Edith Meade, Dorothy Loomis, Catherine Beatty, Della Simpson, Eunice Simpson, Stella Champaign, Jessie Mae Clements, Marx, Dreyfus, Hargrave, Washburn,Bertha Moss; Messrs Walter Moss, Morgan Musser, Reid Tyler, Ferdinand Hanson, Karl Krause, Joe Crosby, Clagg Vandercook, Arthur Hollins, Lester Cousins, Harold Baker, Jack Graye, J.
