Adams House members honored Mrs. Anna Reardon, a member of the dining hall staff for 14 years, with a gift check for $100, a corsage, and a pocketbook, at the evening meal yesterday. Housemaster David Mason Little '19 made the presentation in behalf of the students and resident faculty.
Known to Gold Coasters since 1934 as "Ma," Mrs. Reardon will retire at the end of the term in June. She is currently assistant captain of the dining hall staff.
Housemaster Little's presentation speech was greeted with prolonged applause by those men who were present. Informal in nature, the short ceremony was unannounced, and was therefore attended only by those who happened to be eating at 6 o'clock.
