FOOTPRINT GIVES HEIGHT Hunters can tell almost tha ex act height of an elephant by the size of its track; the shoulder height in double the circumference of the forefoot. Now That Duties Are Over Many Of Capital Tar Heels Vacation JULIA McNINCH SLEAR Come winter or summer, society —with a capital S—actually plays “second fiddle’’ with Washington North Carolinians. "Second fid dles’’ even with that large group of high ranking Tar Heels who hold official positions in the Capi tal. Always, to be sure, you will find them on hand for the “must affairs’’—and having plenty of fun with the top-notchers. But when the social chores are done, they glee fully Slip away to more fascina ting diversions. And now—while many of the North Carolina Colony’s ’’social’’ backs are turned—while they are riding the waves at Wrightsville— deep-sea fishingat Morehead—now, while they are golfing at Blowing Rock or are sitting on some cool, wide veranda in the homeland, we might well do some over-the fence-chatting about the non-social side of Washington life. If they have an ear turned to our city, they will not hear us, for attention, at the moment is fixed on poli tics! | in the last few years we have come to a real appreciation of the fact that if it were not for the very friendliness, the deep under standing of those who came to Washington before us, the whole pattern of our own life would be diSferent. ''Lovely Lady,” they call her in Washington, Mrs. O. Max Gardner, wife of the Under secretary of the Treasury, is far more interested in making the town tolerable to newcomers from the home-state Mhan regaling friends with her visits to the White House, whose huge portals swing open to her frequently. Mrs. Josiah W. Bailey is no social shirker. And as First Lady in North Carolina Congressional cir cles she graciously represents the state when occasion demands. But we are letting you in on no secret when we say the grandchildren come before most social obliga tions. Many Carolina mothers have known the satisfaction of having Mrs. Bailey's interest in their daughters during their Washing ton school days, for all young peo ple find a way to her heart. An other such refreshing, clearcut type of American womanhood is Mrs. Adolphus Staton, wife of Ad miral Staton formerly of Tarboro. Mrs. Staton is the president of the executive board of the Girl Scouts of Washington and mother of at tractive debutante Lucy Staton, who is home for her summer va cation from Smith college. Usually in the center of a social whirlpool, handsome Mrs. Staton lays it all; C^'S ! beautiful/ }\\ ' \5 ^ VES INDEED.rs^ . >SUCH GOOD TASTeZ! CHOOSING HEf) ‘ HOMEFURN/SH//vg<s>^ Ik 0 4 .... That's up lo you! That depends on how you seleci your furniture. Do you exercise discretion? Do you use good judgement in selecting only the finest furniture, styled and constructed to give you many years of service and remain a constant source of attention .... a harbinger of perennial compli ments. We, at PENDER'S, strive lo carry only the finest in styles, quality-proven furniture that holds its charm and graciousness throughout the years. Come in tomorrow and see our large selection of homefurnishings! aside when there is a conflict with her Scout activities. Mrs. Braxton Jones who has been social-circling ever since she resigned as state vice regent of North Carolina Daughters of the American Revolution and moved across the Potomac, shelves the partying for the forum-speaking. Helen took up the art of public speaking in dean earnest and has won White House laurels for her efforts. Thus she stepped into the limelight in the affairs of not only the North Carolina Colony, but the Democratic party as Well and is in demand as a national speaker and a political analyst. The wife of Undersecretary of War Kenneth Royall turns her in terest to young girls, her particular outlet being the National Board of the YWCA, of which she is a valued member. Margaret, who can and does give fetes that make even old Washington rub its eyes, prefers a small intime group, with talk of world events. Mrs. Ran dolph Preston (Julia Jackson Christian, granddaughter of Gen era! stonewall Jackson) is an extremely versatile person, for besides being a walking encyclo she loathes, she is doing an amaz ing piece of work with the OSS in Washington, receiving merit awards and much praise, pedia on history, raising a family and a couple of grandchildren, keeping house which she admits One simply doesn’t think of Washington women without placing Mrs. Thomas Anthony Wadden near the top of the list. This silver haired, well-dressed Washington social and civic leader is the first j woman to step out of the beaten j track and those who protest to day’s use of alcohol. One of the organizers of Alcohol Anonomous, Inc., the dynamic Annie Ihrie (daughter of former Representa tive Pou) devotes the greater part of her time to this cause. I have watched Mrs. Wadden from the days when she was emersed in social life in the prewar days, and I venture to say since then, she has accomplished more as an am bulance driver, volunteer woman’.s corps. Nurse's Aid and what not, than two or three other women have done together. Taking blue ribbons as a deco rator is Mrs. David Armstrong, who swings in a wide social circle during the winter, but with the ad. vent of spring, flits from one friend’s house to another, adding the touch that makes a house a home! Pretty Louise Holmes squares her shoulders and forgets about partying for she has taken on a man-sizea jod—puDiic rela tions director for a new concern you will hear about in a short time. Louise is going to be missed at the gay parties this winter, at least most of them, for she has a busy season ahead of her. Still in the vacationing mood, Mrs. R. F. Matthews is off for a visit to the home state; and so is Mrs. Margaret Cloer who is in Statesville. Also in North Carolina are- Mr. and Mrs. Austin Jeffries. Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Powlas and their children; the Rev. and Mrs. Lee A. Peeler, who are with their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. George Peelel; and Mrs. Arthur Pence, who is spending a fortnight with her sister, Mrs. W. B. Long of Wilmington. The As sistint to the Attorney General and Mrs. Lamar Caudle, with their four children are at the beach where they are the guests, of Mr. Caudle's sister, Mrs. Charles Ingraham. And Lt. Comdr. Jean A. MacLean iS.S.) (W), USNR assistant public relations officer at the Naval Academy has been released to in active duty. Miss McLean has been in the navy since 1942 and was the second woman sworn in from North Carolina. After a month’s vacation at Morehead City and White Lake, Jean will return to her former position as trust fund accountant at the University of North Carolina. Back from a vacation that in cluded a delightful week at Wrightsville Beach is Miss Reathel Odum, secretary to the nation’s First Lady, Mrs. Harry Truman. Likewise returning from a North Carolina vacation are Lieut. Comdr. and Mrs. Myron E. Beard and Mrs. Beard; Mrs. G. Keith Lyon who has been the guest of her aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. John Love Elliott. Mrs. Lyon was accompanied on her return by her Mr. And Mrs. Boy lan Celebrate Birthday W ith Surprise Party - ..I MBiiWim'’ Mim i m 11 Mr. and Mrs. J. E.

Jordan and Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Davis, Jr. at the Wrightsboro club house. The clubhouse was beautifully decorated for the affair. The table for the guests of honor was covered with a lace cloth in the center of which was the three-tiered birthday cake aglow with burning candles.
