Summers Seems Very Suitable For Social Whirl In Capital Bv JULIA McN’INCH SLEAR Many Washington - North Caro linians, gearing their social pro grams to a hot weather week-end are looking Potomac-ward, where graceful little crafts, speedy motor bouts, luxurious yachts and romantic canoes beckon. Others have apparency adopted that summertime slogan “keep cool in the poei” at the club houses around the Capital, while still others are off on the crowded highway— where the road doesn’t ena 'till the sea begins—at More head, flags Head, Carolina Beach, Wrightsville, Myrtle Beach or to some nearby Maryland shore — where in desperation some Tar Heels, unable to get away long enough to get their sun-tan on the home beaches, are finding sur cease from broiling Washington, at least for a couple of days at a time. Busily engaged in dressing up up their cottage at Edgewater are Lillian and Laurence Newman, who are charming Beach-hosts — with the latter doing his bit, at the moment, with the paint brush. Adding to the gaiety at the Newman cottage is the sloop—yet unnamed —that’s anchored within a stone's throw from the wide, hospitable veranda. For the leisuer days to come, the John R. Reids have +aken a cottage at Rehobeth. And, come July 25, a party of their North Carolina friends, still hopelessly tethered to their Washington desks, will motor over to spend the week-end with them—to test out their new ketch —the Lady Bug—and to bask in the sun. That same day, John and Inder (London) Ralls are motor ing Southward, with Morehead City for their destination. Before returning they will visit kith and kin in Eastern Carolina where they are widely and prominently connected and will pause in Ra.eigh to renew former friend ships. Early Thursday found M r s. Albert L. Cox and her attractive daughter Frances, setting off for Tavboro for a visit with relatives. From there they will go to Golds boro to visit Mrs. Murray Borden, (she was formerly Arabella Cox). On August 1st they will go to Wrightsville Beach where they have leased a spacious cottage and where the entire Cox family will gather for a month long reunion. Sharing the joys of surf and sun will be a steady stream cf friends from official and residential circles he -e, and from the younger Washington groups. Clever Jane Cooper who is brightening up the long hospital halls of Walter Reed Hospital knows how to - beat-the-heat in Washington. On summering days like last Saturday and Sunday, she tucks her outboard motor in her car and is off for the Potomac, where it seems as much at home as it did in the waters around Wilmington. Sunday, with Rupert Cliff of Sanford and Arnold Falksen assisting, the speedster made Alexandria in two hours. Next week-end Miss Cooper is motoring to Wilmington for a two week vacation at home. Going down with her are Miss Mary Applewhite and Miss Catherine Estep. En route the trio will stop in Raleigh, Rocky Mount and Fay etteville, returning the middle of August. Mr. and Mrs. Claude A. Cook are planning a series of ten-day trips for their summer vacation. Last Saturday they left for Kitty Hawk. No sooner will they return than they will be off again for the Carolina mountains for a short stay. In September, they will leave again for an end - of-the season vacation at Wrightsville. Splash parties are popular enter tainment 1hese hot days. Favorite spots are the Wardman Park pool, where Mrs. Robert L. Ivey entertained a bevy of Carolina girls at a farewell party for her niece, Sally Ivey, who left yester day for a visit to relatives in Greensboro, and the bright blue water of the Army-Navy cuntry club pool, is a perfect haven for North Carolina “mermaids”. Among the guests at a swimming party there the other day were those much - feted visi.ors from Charlotte, Misses Mary Alice Winston and Sara Joe Heath, who (Continued On Page Two, Col. 3) Gloria Gilbert Of Atlanta, To Wed In August Bride-Elect Daughter Of Mr. And Mrs. Albert Gilbert Formerly Of City Mr. and Mrs. Albert Van Buren Gilbert of Atlanta and Wilmington, announce the engagement of their daughter, Gloria Gilbert, to Robert Edward Lyle, Jr., 0f Stockbridge, Ga., and Madison, Wis.

French at their summer home 322 Waynick blvd., Wrightsvilie Beach. On all sides, both in the city and at Wrightsvilie Beach, there is “weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth” over the order sent out several days ago by the war department transferring Colonel Beverly C. Snow, Chief of the Wilmington district, United States Army Engineers, to Guam in the Pacific. Colonel Snow assumed his duties here last November and Mrs. Snow joined hirn on January 1st. They purchased The Halsey home on Forest Hills drive and immediately became one of us. You will remember, Peg, how many complimentary things I have written you about them and I would like to add now that never have I known a couple, either arm or civilia nwh o,i n ashort yspace of time, has won a warmer spot in the hearts of countless Wilmingtonians. To begin with, Colonel Snow is a native North Carolinian—a former resident of Durham—and if he had looked the world over he couldn’t have found a wife who is more like our kind of people than Betty Snow, even though she claims Denver, Colorado as her original home. Colonel Snow is of course a West Point graduate with a long, enviable record of military achieve ment behind him and in the local assignment he has added laurels to his outstanding record as an armv engineer. Mrs Snow is ex tremely good looking, attractive, gracious, and a wonderfully clever hostess. Best of all Betty Snow is a true friend—a raritv in this day of selfishness and greed, the value of which is far above the price of rubies.
