Quite a number of the girls have been giving little parties in their rooms to some of their friends. Among those was a wild rice party given by Hattie Miller and Alice Denomie. Those invited were Lillian Felix and Martha Hill. The girls enjoyed it as it reminded them of Wisconsin and Minnesota where wild rice is a native cereal.November 14, 1903 Red Man and Helper
