    Mareeba Hospital Children's Night
    Mareeba Hospital Children's Night
    [Date not known but would be mid 1920s]

    MAREEBA HOSPITAL BALL - CHILDREN'S NIGHT.

    A happy crowd of children participated in the revels of the children's night of the annual hospital balls. Eileen Noonan as "Butterfly" and Thelma Kimmins headed the grand march, which was much appreciated by the spectators.

    Among others in fancy costume were: "Cotton Queen," Dorothy Smallwood; "Dutch Girl," Eileen Ford; "Knitting Craze," Veda Kelly; "Cooks," Majory and Desmond White; "Dafodils" Mickie and Elsie Love; "Honeysuckle," Molly Muir; "Gypsy," Catherine Muir; "Gum Nut Baby" Isabel Muir; "Boy Blue," Archie Muir; "Butterfly" Veda Bauerle; "Queen of Roses," Gwen Bauerle; "Xmas Tree," Ivy Brown; "Alladin," Fred Scott; "Princess," Marjory Scott; "Johnny Horner," Ruth Royes; "Jack Benimble" May Royes; "Black Gin," Joe Greer; "Red Devil," Lionel Adcock; "Stockman," Lance Bottrell; "Sundowner," Tom Noonan; "Swagmen," W. Greer and Dan Ford; "Jackie Coogan" Claude Cater. By far the greatest number did not don fancy dress. "Cotton Queen" and "Jackie Coogan" won the prizes for best girl and best boy respectively, and both donated their half guineas back to the hospital, and were publicly thanked by the Rev. Father Phelan (president of the hospital committee) on behalf of the hospital.

    "Cotton Queen", a strikingly pretty costume, represented the cotton industry in Mareeba, and little Dorothy Smallwood's sceptre was surmounted with a bouquet of cotton in the three stages - flower, bolls, and matured cotton, all from the one stem of a cotton tree on her father's farm. The decisions were by voting cards, and "Cotton Queen" won by a large majority.

    Arrangements for the children's night were similar to the first night. At 10.30 the children marched out to supper, and the adults took the floor till mid-night.
