GOODWIN'S WEEKLY 9 H
THE 1912 charity ball, held at the
Hotel Utah Thursday night,
marks another milestone in the
long trail of successes sponsored by
the St. Mark's Hospital Charity asso
ciation. This year's gay parade of so
ciety foil? surpassed any achievement
of the p4st and added to the already
enviable reputation of the band of
women who directed the affair. It was
the one big event of the week and,
of course, the biggest event of the
year in society. Everybody was there,
A, description of the charity ball
may just as well be clipped from the
record of last year or the year before,
so far as adjectival flourish is con
f cerned, the rivalry for proper treat
s' ment-being eclipsed by the custonv
9 ary contest in gown and toilette. Not
hat the ball was no different this
year from charity balls of other years,
for it was; but the same resplendent
scene, heightened by the fashions of
a later day, reflected the same spirit
of other years.
The committees In charge of the
gay 'affair' were:
Executive Mrs. Samuel It. Colla
day, Mrs. Charles H. McMahon, Mrs.
A. J. Gorham, Mrs. F. W. Francis.
Reception President, Mrs. J. A.
