Engagement Told at Hallowe'en Party
Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Neumann of 951 Sixty-second street, entertained a few friends last evening with a Hallowe'en dinner. The table was beautifully decorated for the occasion.
The surprise of the evening was the announcement of the engagement of Miss Ethel Neumann to Milton Van Pelt. The bride-to-be is the charming daughter of A. L. Neumann of the Zellerbach Paper company. Van Pelt is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Van Pelt, who are pioneer residents of Fruitvale. He is associated in business with his father.
The wedding, which will take place some time in December, will be a quiet affair, owing to the recent death of the mother of Miss Neumann.
