WASHINGTON, D. C., December 31.
The inaugural ball, the most bril
liant social alfair In which the United
States Government is. interested, may
be abandoned. In its stead it is pro
posed to hold a magnificent reception
at the Capitol to be national in scope.
The Governors of all the states
would attend to pay tftelr respects to
President Wilson and' Vice-President
Marshall. The elegantly furnished
committee-rooms, forty-eight In num
ber, would be assigned to each state,
and there the Senators and Congress
men, with their wives, and the Gov
ernor, with his wife, would receive.
There wquld be opportunity, too, for
the gue6ts to .meet the presidential
A number of Congressmen favorable
to this plan are lining up for a big
fight against the request for the use
of the Pension building for the inau
gural ball because of inconvenience
and loss of from $60,000 to $100,000 to
the Government. These Congressmen
will stand by the reception plan and
refuse to agree to the Pension build
ing hall. In his report to Congress
four years ago former Pension Com
missioner V. Warner said that the
use of the Pension building entailed
a loss of $95,000 to the Government,
besides setting back the work.
MRS. CATT'S ADVICE
TO DISCARD SKIRTS
Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, the
well known sutiragiol who passed
through Honolulu in November, in a
lecture given in the East a short time
ago advised the women who were in
the audience to discard their tight
or full skirts, the former because of
their hindrance to ease in walking,
the latter because they are cumber
some and don pantellets.
Mrs. Catt said that she herself
would continue to wear the feminine
garment but she suggested that some
of the women who were younger
might easily start some new fashion.
Easier said than done, for not long
ago when a society gicJ of prominence
wore rather a long coat over a pair of
full trouserettes she was scored high
ly in the Eastern papers and was
asked to wear a still longer coat. She
was even barred entree to the club's.
This woman was a sportswoman, a
rider and an all-round athlete and be
cause she found skirts a hindrance
and discarded them she came near
being isolated socially. Suffrage was
not so prominent in the United States
then, in fact it was seldom heard of
but even now when some of the states
have given the women a franchise the
heads of the government would prob
ably balk should they see members
of the gentler sex parading the streets
in the clothes 'Of their brothers and
If those who dote on Mrs. Catt's
every word do decide to "start some
thing" in the way of designing new
garments, let's hope that none of them
come to Honolulu. For they would
probably be banished quickly. A cou

though the harem skirt was to be cor

Whether Honolulans are narrow
