i _ W • ___ Doin’ The Town With! A Debutante . . . —--. 1 BY ROXANE “in the good old summertime— in the good old summertime”— that’s the song many of our young sub-debs and debbies are singing (if they CAN sing) and why shouldn’t they? For we have so many interesting things doing loose day . . . . I. Lois C. Searcy is becoming quite an equestrienne de-luxe de-lovely, de-glamour and de soie (latch on?) while her cousin Clementine Church and Mae Rose Hebert take their riding n a more serious vein. . . . Wanda Johnson of Central Y fame is dancing with Posey Flow ers, director and choreographer of the “Dancers of the Mask”. . . Incidentally, this group of fine young dancers of modern art will , soon be featured in one of the t musical shows at our own Ameri \ can Negro Exposition. . . . ^ Speaking of the Exposition, r may I remind you debbies that f have not as yet attended the “Expo” to do it at your earliest moment. . . . Don’t fry4 to do it , all in one visit. . . Come back two or three or even more times. I’m sure the ticket taker will welcome you and you in turn give our visitors an idea of what beauty sepia Chicago has. . . . Shirley Hays is attending sum mer school, taking music lessons ; nd working too. and therefore is not seen at as many social af fairs as is desired by the younger tel. . . . Brave Shirley, wouldst that I could but do the same. . . ( Tis the Shakespeare in me). Orchids to Lois Doyle for sit ting up with her father through the night, while he is recovering from a serious automobile acci dent. . . . We are hoping that soon Dr. Doyle will be adminis tering his professional service to us again, and that his recovery will be soon a thing of the past. A whole flower garden for love ly Jean Dorsey who so gracious ly entertained her guests on her birthday last Sunday at the Quincy Club. Everyone agreed that it was just like New Year’s Eve, what with confetti, noise makers, paper hats, etc. and of course loads and loads of young people. . . . Dressed in a beautiful dress of blue printed silk, Jean Dorsey welcomed her guests and started tne ball of merriment a-rollin’ . . In a place like the Quincy Club, one never does get to see everyone present, so please bear with me if I have left any young ones out ... to tell the truth I couldn't remember all the names. . . . Lois Searcy was there with Charles Smith . . Mae Rose He bert, Laura Marshall, Clementine Church and Kennedy Parker, Mary Forte, and Milton Webster, Alice Barland, and Wade Watson, Emily Bates and Carl Watson, Jim Branham and Frank Anglin, Robert McCune. Alma Dorsey, Julius Thomas, Marjul Everett, Sybil Bernstein, Blanch Myrick, Leola Thompson, Alberta Gibson, Alfred Howe, Pete Gransberry, Mary Howe, Mae Bridgeforth, Doris Evans, Bill Walker, Mickey Williams, and Becka Williams, and some more, and some more. After having surprised her guests with such novel invitations, Jean also gave us a treat by har ing eacli number announced as it was going to be played . . . and Miss Dorsey, may turn this sort of party into an annual affair. . . . That’s a very good idea and I’m sure it will meet with the approval of the younger set whole-heartedly. . . . Punch and cake was served and as usu al a good time was had by all . . (rather trite, eh?). Bonnie and Louise Hague and their parents are enjoying New York City and the New York Philharmonic concerts. . . . Edith Hayes, of Fisk university is still feeling the after effects ol a strenuous fourth of July celebration. Definitely a two-some tnese days is Pete Gransberry and Mary Howe . . . and not to men tion, Charles “Box” Smith and a certain Delta pledgee. . . . Defi nitely dis-heartening (whew, what a word) is the news that Germans are banning the use of rouge and lipstick to smart Pa risiennes and that the Vogue may also begin in our own U. S. A., il this does occur and women will stop using lipstick and rouge, do you think I’ll still be, Youthfully yours? ROXANE.
