president and his bride traveled in a
private car attached to a special train
leaving here at 11:10 o'clock, which
is due to arrive in Hot Springs at
8:15 a. in. tomorrow.
At Hot Springs Mr. and Mrs. Wil
son will live at the Homestead hotel
until after New Year's day, unless
some development should necessitate
the president's earlier return to the
capital. Two White House aut6mo
biles have been sent on ahead and
the couple expect to spend their hon
eyinoon motoring, golfling and walk

the secret service guard, the party
was accompanied by- a stenographer.

the presence of less than 30 guests,
mostly relatives. They left soon af

at Hot Springs, Va.
The president dined as usual at the
White House at 7 o'clock with his
daughters and afterward drove to his
bride's home, about a mile from the
executive mansion. A cold, driving
rain, which swept the city all day,
cleared off at sunset and the evening
was cool and pleasant.
Everything was in readiness when
the president arrived and the core
