This one was of black chiffon velvet with a snort arapea skirt and a bodlco drapery and sash of flame colored satin, the top of the bodice being of white tulle and Jet beads strung on flame colored silk. She wore a scarf of flame colored tulle, and for Jewels around her throat a lovely string of pearls with tastelled ends and a diamond studded camb In her hair.

Their hos pitalities certainly aro hospitable; they are famous for their "good cats." For most of the guests It wis a buffet supper a continuous performance served on ft table, eweet with spring flower.', with the loveliest little fountain sending up ita slender aigrette of water In the middle and falling into a basin edged with pink roses and snapdragons and narcissus. But the chief guests were served at a table in the alcove, whero during the earlier part of the evening the hostesses had re ceived. Also there was an orchestra mak ing music throughout tho evening, and there was informal dancing Just as soon as tho first rush was over and there was enough room for It to be practical. For the Actors' Fund. Another event of tho week In which so ciety waa very generally Interested was the Actors" Memorial Fund benefit on Tuesday afternoon. There were to have been four separate performances In aa many theatres. But so many members of tho casts were out of commission because of the prevailing heavy colds and Influ enza that only two of them were able 'to function. Holders ot tickets for cither of the others were notified that either one of the two that was actually giving ita pro gramme would accommodate them. Mrs. Thomas F. Walsh hd interested herself in the sale of the boxes, and, in fact, in helping along the sale of tickets gen erally, and ihe' a mighty good person to have pulling for you when you are trying to raise money. Mrs. Alice Birnsy-ih who tss for ti: nlnvinir n-inter resort. Mrs. Crowell waa decided ly keen about it. expecting to have all sorts ot a good time. Which doesn't mean that the Assistant Secretary of War was not equally so hut I didn't hap pen to discuss the matter with him. They had had the MacMurrays with them for the better part of a week and had done considerable entertaining for them. Mrs. Baker rather called a halt this week because of Mr. Baker's Illness. Not that it was particularly serious, but that It was so unusual for him to be ill at all that the family regarded It as an event Ho had a touch ot the "flu." was confined to his bed for a couple of days and to the house for a couple more. Mrs. Baker says that It Is actually the first time In the years that sho has known him that he has been confined to his bed for a single day by Illness and so far aa she can find out the first time in his forty eight years of life. Which is a pretty good record for the "Sec. War." He was well enough by Wednesday, however, for her to have no hesitation about observing her reception day informally, as imual. In fact most of tho Cabinet at-home this week were distinctly informal. Cabinet Reception. Mrs. Lansing w-as at home, but very, perfunctorily, inasmuch ae Secretary Lansing was equally with Secretary Baker and the Attorney General.( Mr. Palmer, having a touch of the "flu, and tho Secretary of State has n6 such nnrferftil health record as the wiry little Secretary of W ar. In fact, no is tar irora strong, and has seen snameiesaiy over taxed in the last few years. They were both to have been guests at a dinner that Rerreta . and Mrs. Lane save for them on Wednesday, but I fancy Mrs. Lansing had to bear all the honors by herself, as the Secretary waa scarcely well enough to be out Mrs. Lane did not attempt an "at-home" In the afternoon. So far aa I know she has not observed "CaBlnet Wednesday" at all this season. She had planned a tea for last Thursday for Governor McCartny, oi Hawaii, and tho members of tho Hawaiian delegation at present in Washington seeking statehood for their island. But so many of them were knocked out by the prevailing influenza, although fortu nately they were all 1'ght cases, that sha postponed her tea until February 13. There is considerable entertaining fcelng done for this Hawaiian party. Governor McCarthy is accompanied by his wife and daughter, and as every American who has gono to Honolulu in the last few years haB been entertained most hosplt ably by them, they aro naturally having a gay time now that t-ey aro here. Judge and Sirs. Sidney Ballou had a tea iot them this afternoon, and Mrs. Lane helped Mr. Ballou recetve. The first two of Miss Nancy Lane' en gagement parties come today, you know. mm. Frank Kellogff. wife of Senator Kel logg, of Minnesota, had a tea and dance for her and Mr. Kaufmann this afternoon at Rauscher's, and Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Caspar Miller gave them a dinner, fol lowed by another dance, tonight. It was Miss Nancy's busy day. Secretary and Mrs. Lane were the only "older" guests at the dinner-nobody ever thinks of them as bolder," only that's tho way Mrs. Lane put it Mrs. Burleson waa at home on Wednes day, very informally. Mm. Daniels was not, as she was out of town. She had been down In North Carolina several daya and did not return until Thursday. Mrs. Palmer was not-oh no; not because of the Attorney General's Illness: that waa slight and she assured me on Wednesday morn ing that he was very much, better. . but "Just laziness. I guess." Perhaps the fact that she wasTsxpectinE friends from home. Mrs. L. J. Browne and her sister. Miss Rauberiold. from Pennsylvania, who ar rived that afternoon, to make her a little visit.
