SOCTETY. as much of It es was In
town, braved the rain last night
and dan? ed in the Willard ball
room for the benefit of the Episcopal
Eye. Ear and Throat Hospital. It
was rather a revelation when It
seemed as if "everybody m Washing
ton wa sout of It" for the Thanks
giving week-end, to see how many
there were to dance in a good cause.
The bailroom, decorated only with
flags and greenery, was well filled,
and while in the absence of the
President and Mr?. Wilson, and the
Vic? Preeident and Mrs. Marshall ?in
fact, of the official world generally?
there wu no "honor box," the bend
being stationed on the platform half
way do\r nthe room which is fre
quently used for that purpose.
Like all the functions Cor the Eye.
Ear and Throat Hospital, it was es
sentially a party of the resident set.
a handsome, dignified conventional
entertainment, everything beautifully
managed, and running on well-oiled
ball bearings, the floor always well
filled, but at no time uncomfortably
crowded. One could dance without
undue Jostling, and the dancer? did
not have that worried, strained look
which often comes at the big dances
from the endeavor to steer through
an over-crowded room.
The receiving line was limited to'
the president of the board of lady ,
managers. Mrs. Watson Clark, and
Mrs. David Meade Lea. the vice presi
dent, with Comdr. Theodore .1ew_l
making the introduction.?. Mrs. Clarke,
wore black net, jetted, and with a I
border design of white beads, over!
rather a deep turquoise blue silk, with I
diamond pins and ornaments, the col- !
oringa in striking contrast to Mrs.1
Lea, who wore a lovely glittery gown
of cloth of gold bro? adcd in deep rich
reds and blues, with a hodice largely
of plain cloth of gold and tulle, and
a narrow squar?? train of the brocade,
lined with plain cloth of gold. She
wore diamond ornaments and a string
The debutante;? and members of tho
younger set who had not gone to New
York wore the daintiest possible,
gowns, making a lovely changing
bouquet of colors on the floor. Miss
Marguerite Simonds. who seemed to
have several partners for each dance,
wore a lovely costume of silver cloth
and tulle. Mis? Marie Slmms, who
sat out most of the evening, very well
entertained, wore a most becoming
deep turquoise, blue. Little Miss Myra
Morgan, who made her ?debut last
Monday, ?raj a lovely little, roue girt

Supper w'as served i nthe small ball

lighted by red shaded candles. One
of the hotel attendants caused con-j
sidereble amusement by repestedly
annouenmg in stentorian tones that |
supper was being served and urging ,
the guests "this way for supper" until j
he had them all herded safely into the. ?
small ball room or grouped closely |
around the entrance and the ball room :
practically deserted. It sounded as '
some o? the guests laughingly com
mented rather like the last call for -
dinner in the dining car. But it serv
ed its purpose of getting the guest?
Naturally neither Mrs. Clarke nor
Mrs. Lea was able to give much at- ,
tention to the guests in their boxes :
