8 DIPLOMATIC NEWCOMERS FACE WASHINGTON'S DINNER LINE '-i v.. 3 The Japanese Am bassador and Vis countess Ishii Are Receiving, 'the Same Sort of Wel come at the Capi tal That Was Given to Lord and Lady Reading Washington, June 22. TIMES certainly have changed '. Rather bromldlc, eh? Well. It's a. quotation from a rather Important but also rather new Ad ministration official. Accompanied by a chuckle, it was his comment on the cable despatches to the effect that King George would attend the Fourth of July celebration of American sol diers In London. If he hadn't been new the humor of the situation would have been blunted If, at least. It had been given him to Mrs. Larz Ander son's War Work WinsHeraLL.D.

Including the British, Hying Its flag In honor of our national birthday, and the White House flagless, because the President happened to be out of town. Perhaps In happier or more leisurely times the President had left Wash ington for the summer and estab lished a summer White Housj else where. Or perhaps he had gone off to help out some other city's Fourth of July celebration with a speech. Anyhow the situation described has net been uncommon In past seasons, since the flag only flies from the White House staff when the President Is In residence, and very often by 'the Fourth of July he has not been In resi dence. Tea, verily, times have changed! For instance, consider the case of Mrs. Bmmeline Pankhurst, who arrived in Washington last Saturday. Not more than half a dozen years ago she was held tip at Ellis Island and her right to enter thlH country questioned on the technical ground that she was an ex-convict, an unde sirable alien. And on her return to England after that trip two or three battleships steamed out to meet her and she was taken off the steamer on which she travelled by a police launch and spirited away to Holloway gaol. She bad seized the opportunity while she was out on leave because f.er health had broken under her hunger strike to make a flying visit to Amer ica, which was, of course, very wrong of her. Degrees for Lord Jteadlasj. Now she Is over here, not quite as the agent of the British Government, but very near It, certainly with its rood will and encouragement. She is j rather under the wing of the British authorities. As apon ns she arrived ih was Invited to luncheon by the Arthur Willerts. Mr. Wlllert being the I actual executive head of the British war mission here, and she met other members of the mission. She would at the first opportunity call upon Lord Reading and map out her campaign with him. Receive her? Of course he'd receive her. Times have changed! Mrs. Pankhurst had to wait several days for the opportunity to talk things over with Lord Reai'.tng. He and Lady Reading were out of town went up to Princeton last week that the university might bestow a degree open him, stopped off in New York ever the week end and then on up to New Haven, where Tale gave him another degree. Verily, "To him that hath shall be given." For the last few weeks Lord Reading has been travelling around gathering up fresh degrees from various American institutions of learn ing. And Lady Reading has gene with him. Lady Reading is really a great as- Atlantic City Atlantic, Citt, June S2 Atlantic Oty has had a busy week of conven tion, starting with th New Tork State Bankers Association, which spent two wall filled days at the Traymore. The State encampment of the G. A. R. and affiliated bodies, Including the Sons of Veterans, brought large throngs of vis itors from all parts of New Jersey dur ir tho last part of the week. Nsxt weak there wilt be a big visitation of the Mooae lodges of the nation for their annual convention. Over 10,000 dele gates are expected. Beach guarda are having a hard time of it keeping bare limbed bathing girls off the beach In accordance with an order from the City Commissioners. Many of the Jersey coast resorts permit the omission of hosiery, but Atlantic Oty Is maintaining the policy of pre vious rears and barring any display of etocklngless limbs along ths bathing beaches. Hoovertzed bathing attire, however, la permitted, and women are taking full advantage of the ruling which permits mannish suits to be worn. The mackln toih law which compels all bathers who go direct from their cottages In water attire to cover their salts with sn outer wrap will go Into effect within ths next fortnight Surf board devotees have adopted a new stunt for coasting about the shal low water. Instead of riding the break rs they now corns In close to shore, and aftar tho combers have flattened out take a running dive as If they were dandling a sled and then shoot along oa top of the water for long distances. Among ths recent Now Tork arrivals here are Mr. and Mrs. R. F. Thomas, who are at the Traymore for the season. Sr. and Mrs. W. M. Polk of New Tork are also at ths Traymore. Mr, and Mrs, H. O. Taylor of Toronto are spending June at ths Strand. Mr. and Mrs. Oeorge StandUh of New Tork viiiiors s we run. Pierre B. du Pont of New Tork and 'Wilmington spent several days bare this wtex at to cnsironts. nr. ana Mrs. Sylvan Dalalmer are guests at ths Breakers. J. Tlleson Baldwin of New Tork Is pending several weeks at ths Craig Mall. Mrs. Mathew C Hayes and Mas ter Hayes motored hero from Brooklyn varing ths week tor visit at ttys Had- TUt. Hi o ivo' set to the British Embassy Here. She enters Into things with un-Uritlsh en thusiasm. She manages to come into personal contact with a great many people, and all seem to like her. And whatever's doing she's in It. For instance, she contributed a hand some gown of black and white lace and tulle and for nil I know other things to Mrs. Lansing's bandbox war shop when It wns open for two days lust week, n gown that was prac tical as well as handsome, not so Im possibly the costume of a great lady for a great function that an ordinary mortal would And no use for it, but n suitable sort of gown, quite fr'esh, quite modern, and of a style that almost any one would have occasion for. Moreover, the beautiful lace which went into its makeup would have made it a bargain nt. double the price asked. Mrs, Lansing's Bargain Sales. Those are amusing sales that Mrs. Lansing has once in a while for the State Department's war relief fund. They would be even more Interesting if the history of each article went with it. Everybody in tho official and diplomatic set Is more or less Inter ested. It is a splendid outlet for the perfectly good things' we all buy. and then somehow don't take kindly to for rome reason. One couldn't con scientiously throw them away, but,nno can. with conscience not only clear but actually approving, give them to a Red Cross sale. There was a perfect raft of dainty evening shoes that Mrs. Breckenrldgc Long sent down expensive shoes that seemed scarcely to have been put on so many of them that one of the girls who were helping exclaimed as she watched them unpacked. "Whose are they? Was the woman a centipede? It was edifying to watch Mrs. Lan sing try on a pair: but they didn't fit. There was a love of a little coat In Mrs. Richard Crane's contribution and a sports coat that would have been quite stunning on tho right girl. And there was a dear little hat of white satin almost covered with braiding. I don't know who sent that, but exami nation indicated that twice hatpins had been stuck through it twice! Mrs. Lansing told me later that they had cleared about $500 on that two days sale, which was a very welcome addition to their department war chest. Speaking of Lord Reading's degrees a few minutes ago suggested that there are others Mrs. Lars Anderson,' for Instance. She Is Just back In Washington Well Filled don Hall.

And on the strength , of It George Washington University here in Washington conferrej upon ! her nt its recent commencement the honorary degree of doctor of letters the first time in its history, extending over 100 years, that It has bestowed an honorary degree cn a woman. She hns had a thrilling experience and done splendid work. She has slept In her clothes because she needed them for warmth, slept the leep of exhaustion nmid the roaring of hos tile guns. And she has cooked for herself the simple food that she needed to sustain life where missiles which meant death were fallin; and where Teuton horrors were constantly threatening. Suffering and death have been her day .and night com panions. The Dlnlns? Line ?To Joke. j Of course these things would not In themselves have served as an excuse for a doctor of letters degree, but Mrs. Anderson has also written. She hns ha2f a dozen charming travel honks to her credit. And she Is writ Injr n series of sketches of her ex perience, which, though as yt In complete, has already been sold, the proceeds to go to tho Red Cross. All her Washington friends are waiting for a chance to cntertnln her. A humble suggestion to the lady: when she has finished the series con tracted for she might top off with one "From the Firing Line to the Dining Line." That dining line in no Joko in Wash ington. Every notable new arrival goes down it. The Readings could hRve something to tell on that sub ject. Though the fury of the first attack is over with them and they are actively returning fire, still It must be some comfort to them to see that the Jusserands, who have been here something more than fifteen years, still survive and seem fairly fit. The Japanese Ambassador and Vis- Countess Ishil are now in the thick of the fray two or three dinners a week for them and one or two by them. Of course their first dinner was In honor of Secretary and Mrs. Lansing, and, equally of course, Cspt. and Mrs rerry Belmont were among the guests at this first dinner, because, you may remember, it was their house on New Hampshire avenue which was placed at the disposal of the Japanese mis sion headed by the present Ambas sador when It was here last summer. Tho Belmonts, by the way, will be opening their Newport house soon. but will not very definitely close their Washington . house. Washington houses are not being closed this sea son, Next, Viscount Ishil and his at tractive little wife entertained for the Jusseronfis, it being Ambassador Jus serand's cordial habit, as dean of the diplomatic corps, to rive a welcoming dinner to his new colleagues shortly after their arrival. The return dinner to him also featured M. Marcel De laney, newly appointed French Am bassador to Japan, who made a visit In Washington en route to his new post and was the centre of consider able offlclal and diplomatic entertain ing. On Monday there was a dinner at the Japanese Embassy for the Italian Ambassador and the Countess dt Cel- lere, with tho latter absent, she having gone to Blue Ridge Summit last week to establish her family for the sum mer and been unable to fret back. And next Monday they give one, probably for Lord and Lady Reading, French Embassy Entertains More. It has been noticeable of late that the French Embassy Is rather coming out of Its shell. It went further In than any of them at the beginning of the war, but lately it has been almost gay, whereat every one rejoices, for Mme. Jusserand Is not only ranking hostess of the diplomatic corps, but she is one of the most beloved. One can use that, word of a woman who Is American born of good old Philadel phia stock, and who has lived among us as chatelaine of the French Em bassy for more than fifteen years and won her way slowly but surely by un varying .gentle 'dignity and kindliest courtesy. ' For the last four years the Jus eerands have trodden the path of sor row, genuine and unaffected. They have done almost no entertaining and have gone nowhere. Lately, perhaps because there novo been a number of occasions when It was officially up to VvN T " r AnrWmn The De Mohrenschlldts ore in luck.

You see, it is practically nil in the family now, the family of nations. We're all on the same sido of the fence. They run no risk of meeting and having to bo civil to (he repre sentatives of their nation's enemies, and they can go around much more freely then they cntild beforo America entered tho war. Tholr whole attitude seems to be changing. For during tho first years, whllo tho representatives of the Entente went nowhere tho representatives of the Central Powers accepted Invita tions rather freely. Tho German Em bassy wns even enlarged, the houno next door was acquired for offices, and tho embassy building was redecorated and fitted up as thn Ambassador's residence, as a suitable setting for more elnborate entertaining In the summer of 1916! Countess von Bernstorff, who had been in Germany ever since the war broke, came back to America that fall, and there were rumors that the Ger man Embassy wns about to launch a brilliant social campaign. It never was launched. Things began to hap pen, or rather kept on happening in face .of every protest, and when pa tience, which had long since ceased to be a virtue, was completely exhausted the German Ambassador wan handed his passports and the embassy was closed and has remained closed ever since. Diplomatic Contrasts. There seems to bo a mistaken Idea In some quarters that the Hubschers havo been occupying it. Thero have even been printed glowing word pic turea of Mme. Hubscher presiding at dinner nt the German Embassy, to the keep delight of her mother and father, who were visiting her from Cincinnati. But nothing of the sort ever happened. Dr. nnd Mme. Hubscher had their own home, a delightful apartment a good mile from tho German Embassy, until they moved out to Chevy Chase early this spring, where, far from pre siding nt German Embassy dinner, . 1 ' ! . . . x . . nune. xiuoscoer if giving wnai ume sho Ciin tnkc from her delightful little son to studying the mysteries of her garden. The adjoining houso is still the of fice of the embassy, but over its door aro emblazoned tho arms of Switzer land and beneath the legend "Depart ment of German Affairs." There have been suggestions that A. Mitchell Pal mer, Custodian of Allen Property, might take over the embassy nnd turn It Into much needed quarters for one of tho expanding war bureaus. It would bo a bit of Ironlo humor that would ticklo many, but of courso it can't lo done. Tho embassy Is closed and carefully guarded. Curious, tho different positions Amer ican girls who have married Into the diplomatic service uro finding them selves in theso days! Mme. Jusserand and the Countess von Bernstorff, both of them American born! Of the younger generation, brides of little moro than a year, Mme. Hubscher, whoso Swlbs husband is now looking after German affairs, and Mrs, Mal colm Arnold Robertson (Gladys In galls), whoso British husband has Just been transferred to his country's lega tion In Denmark. And in between Mme. do Rluno (Alicia Ward) and Mme. Ekengren (Laura Jackson), whoso husband has had a few bud quurter hours trying to explain Swe den's rather vacillating neutrality. Mmo. Ekengren, by the way, has Just taken her two little daughters up to Marthas Vineyard, where for sev eral seasons sho and the Swedish Min ister havo had a cottagci during the summer. But she has no idea of stay ing. As soon ns her mother. Mrs. John P. Jackson, completes a little round of visits that sho Is making nnd can Join the menaga nt Edgurtown Mme. Ekengren will leave tho youngsters In their grandmother's care and will re turn to Washington to do what sho can to make a Washington summer pleasant for her husband and occa sionally to lure him to Martha's Vine yard to see' how tho children are thriv ing and to get a bit of rest himself. Finally there are tho Russians, with Nona McAdoo de iMohrenschlldt, a brldo of lust spring, nt one end of the lino nnd Mme. George Bakhmeteff, wlfo of tho Czar's last representative 1' ia the United States, bora a Beall of Philadelphia and Washington, at the other. And In between an unfortu nate, amorphous group of Indetcrmt-, nato status and uncertain future, for whom every one is devoutly sorry. The De Mohrenschlldts aro in luck. They have irreproachable connections t both social and financial right here in Washington. They aren't coming to 1 any serious grief. I believe young De ' Mohrenschlldt when he decided to get out from under the tottering Jtus-1 slan Embassy "offered his Rword," i whatever that may mean, to the UnlUd States, which didn't sec its way to accepting. There have been occasional rumors of his intention of taking out papers nnd being natural ized. But that, of course, ,takes tlm and I have not heard that he han made any real move in that direction. Several of the others who formerly figured in the diplomatic list as being of thn staff of the Russian Embassy hero have been put to it to get along at all. The chaotic conditions In Rus sia have entirely deprived them of any private revenues, and from all accounts the ghost hasn't walked among them for months. v They are in a bad way. Several of them have congratulated themselves i on having leased houses lat fall, when It was still possible to lease houses in Washington, and being therefore In a position to rent rooms, which has heliH'd some' i Tho ATn!.n..e.nt.ir Ttnrla tin Vi nyflnff and his wife have never attempted to occupy the Russian Embassy, which his predecessor, M. and Mmo. George Bakhmeteff, moved out of a. year ago It would be a terribly expensive estab lishment to keep up, and moreover there is some question ns to their right to it as representatives of present day Russia, as I understand It is held as tlu personnl property of thn Czar. They have moved around, occupying several different furnished houses since they have been here, and Just this last week have taksn possession of pleasant summer quarters at Cleve land Park. Uaklimeteffe Among Friends. Probably the George Bakhmeteffs were inclined to be a bit sorry for themselves, but they must have had considerable human satisfaction dur ing the lxst year In realizing how much better off they were than any of their successors. They are at home here nnd among friends. They moved out of the embassy Into an almost equally handsome residence in nn equally desirable part of town, In "Am bassador's Row." up on the Sixteenth street hill. Mme. Bakhmeteff Is an Institution in Washington. Everybody knows her, has known her from girlhood. She is E. B. McLean's aunt, his mother's only sUtcr. She Is Truxtun Beale's sister. and he has been In Washington a good part of the winter, actually occupying tho flno old Decatur mansion, which he owns, on Jackson place. Mme. Bakhemeteff is at home here, and she has the affectionate sympathy of her whole world In Washington, in cluding her immediate neighbors, the French and Spanish embassies, the Breckcnrldge Longs in the MacVcagh houso across the way and Mrs. Mar shall Field In her pink palaco a few doors below. Her newest neighbor Is the Cuban Legation, with Dr. and Mme. do Ces- pedes. The latter has been in New York all winter, waiting for her home, tho new and handsome, fegatlon which Cuba hns been building. Poor Dr, Cespcdos has been vibrating between New 'York and Washington, hi but.1 noss being hero and his wlfo there. However, the legation Is finally fin Ished and Mme. de C'espedes has moved In and Is getting settled. She Is tremendously proud of her flno new home, as well she may be, and Is so busy planning and arranging utul get ting her house in order that she hits mnde no Mimtner plans and may de clde to stay right In Washington. Tho only socially Important wed ding this week is that of Hnlllp Elklns Davis nnd Lieut. George A. Percy, U. S. M. C, which takes place this afternoon. It promises to b "an awfully pretty pnrty" and "quite the youngest wedding Washington naa Hecn In n long time. Of course there have been "young" weddings before In Washington society, but they havo usually been rather sudden, and pa rents haven't always known until Just before or Just after tho event. But this one, with n. debutante bride and practlcnlly every girl In her wedding party of the siiIwipV clas. Is being put through in iirthodoxi and conventional fashion. U Is to rw.OVhVrit &t;; tnke piaco at the Elklns residence on K street, the brldo being Mrs. Elklns's nleco and namesake. Lieut. Percy's parents and his young sister arrived early in tho week from Boston, and the Elklns-Davis clan has been gathering the Arthur Lees, who had left town, aro bock for the wed ding; the Blaine Elkinses, in the same case; tne wieaerseims irom Philadelphia, the William Hltts, and others of that socially and financially Important connection. And there has been a succession of parties for the young couple, luncheons nnd country club teas and dinners, winding up with dances. Miss Davis herself Is not yet 10 and hor maid of honor, Miss Ellen Bruce Leo (Mrs. Arthur Leo's daughter and the bride's cousin).

But this bride ought to bo very lovely. She will be pretty well enveloped In her tulle veil, and she tells mo her bouquet H to bo "orchids and some (lowers that look like orange blossoms but aren't." Thus, do we camouflage even our wed ding attire! The ceremony is to take place In the Elklns ballroom, and though I haven't yet seen It in all its glory It's n dream as far as they've got, with a bridal altar at one end of the room and thn balcony all twined with masses of pink rambler roses. Mrs. Elklns is right in her clement arranging weddings. Rebecca Collier's wedding with Copt. Pitt Scott a few weeks ago was at the last minute transferred to the Elkins house when It became evident that it was outgrowing Mrs. Talmadge's apartment. It had been planned to Imo the ceremony at her mother's apartment and to borrow Mrs. Elklns's house for the reception, but ultimately the whole thing took place there. "And." ns tho bride walled to one of her friends, "If we'd only known we could havo Invited everybody, my dear everybody!"
