WASHINGTON, D. C SUNDAY, lAItCa 2, 19lil
i&uests Will 3&e TExUn6e6 Warm Welcome
LOOKING backward is not alwavs an agreeable task, but on reviewing the
years of the President and Mrs. Taft's occupancy of the White House
history will accord them unstinted praise, not only for the President's
worth as a man of brilliant mental attainments, but to Mrs. Taft as gracious
custodian of the historic mansion. Their hospitality has become proverbial, and
under their regime the White Houe has gained a social eminence never before
Among their many brilliant entertainments, which Iiavc won world-wide
fame, one stands pre-eminent their siher wedding anniversary. After a week
of exceptionally hot weather, even for June, that day became cooler, and at
night was starlit and beautiful. The grounds of the White House resembled
Fairvland, being brilliantly lighted by electricity, the thousands of bulbs, hung
ccn to the trcetops; the flag, also formed of electric lights, which adorned
the wall over the south portico; thebrillianlly illuminated stand, before which
the gracious hosts received on the lawn the hundreds of invited guests who
tame from many States to greet them all formed a tableau far surpassing any
eent of a social character given at the White House. The interior of the man
sion was equally beautfful. The many superb gifts were not di'plaved, save
those containing flower'.
WVhitigtoniaiis arc bidding the President and Mrs. Taft farewell with sin-
Lccre sorrow and regret, and also with
in all future undertakings.
But now, "The king is dead long
ron tiptoe to welcome the President-elect and Mrs. Wilson. They come practi
cally unknown to many residents of the National Capital, and interest in them
and their three daughters i5 already kcied to the highest pitch.
Mrs. Thomas Marshall, who arrived in Washington with her husband, the
Vice President-elect, on Friday, has much charm of manner and a most in
teresting pcrsonalitj. and will proc a welcome addition to Washington society.
Mrs Marshall has decided views of her own in regard to the many prob
lems confronting women of the present da. As she very aptly puts it. m re
ferring to the question of suffrage- "It will but add another burden to the
evcrvday work of the average woman she cannot vote intelligently without
studying the question, and politics arc an absorbing study, and what then will
become of her other and more pressing duties? If a woman needs other oc
cupations. wh not work off her superfluous energies in taking up the servant
problem and the matter of drcM reform, surely they are more befitting the
interest of a happ "homemaker? I might
inccd that the majontv of women really desire it."
Mrs. Marshall has already stated that she doubts if it is possible for a
woman, whose husband occupies a high official position, to dress on $t,ooo a
j car; and she remarked vestcrday to The Herald: "Respect for her husband's
position requires her to dress the part, but" Mrs. Marshall has a most infec
tious smile "I have seen many women who spend next to nothing on their
clothes, through the force of necessity, who dress in far better taste than their
more fortunate sisters who enjoy an unlimited income."
Much hospitality is being shown the many strangers who have come to
Washington for the inauguration. Trunks are piled high in endless confusion
at the Union Station, and every train brings ill hundreds of new arrivals. It is
to be hoped that the "weather man" will be kindly disposed, and that the, ad
ministration of the new President will thus have an auspicious beginning.
