WASHINGTON. D. G..-SUNDAY. -FEBRUARY 1, 1914:
5a? "Clmes preceding. tbw Season
NATALIE SUMNER HXCOLTV.
" 1TH Lent tut twenty-five days
many entertainments into the
calendars may be cleared of
On Tuesday night last fell two notable entertainments: the President and
Mrs. Woodrow Wilson's reception at the'White House in honor of the judiciary,
and the reception given by the German Ambassador and Countess von Bernstorff
in celebration of the birthday anniversary of the Kaiser.
"While the receptiou at the White House was exceptionally large, it proved
r.ot as late an affair as the diplomatic reception, given some weeks earlier. The
judicial reception was scheduled to commence at 9:30 o'clock, but before 8
o'clock the guests began assembling, and the lower corridors were crowded
when the first arrivals were permitted to go up to the East Room.
The President and Mrs. Wilson are always prompt, and the reception be
gan punctually at 9:30 o'clock. With the new arrangements of roped aisles, the
space in the East Room is economized and greater speed is gained as the guests,
kept in straight lines, move more rapidly than ever before to the entrance of
the Green Room, whence they single file past the President and. Mrs. Wilson
and the receiving party.
It hardly seems likely that dancine will follow the two remaining state re
ceptions at the White House. At the diplomatic and the judicial it was tabooed,
the reason given that dancing was impossible in so great a crowd. However
that may be, it would seem that the President and Mrs. Wilson do not care to
continue the custom established in the past administration. It is agrcat dis
appointment to many guests, who treasure the opportunity of "dancing in the
historic East Room."
While Mrs. Woodrow Wilson and
they will occupy the box reserved for them at" the Southern Relief Ball tomorrow
night at the New Willard, it is not expected that the President will attend, as
his antioathv to larce dances is well known.
It will be the first time'in many years that the Chief Executie has not been
present at this ball of balls for the "Southland," where all Southerners residing
here assemble to do honor to their native
The ball promises to eclipse those of the past in point of brjjliancy and at
tendance. The Vice President and Mrs. Marshall will head the receiving line,
among whom will be distinguished members of the Cabinet and Congress.
Two bands will furnish the music for the dancing in the big and -small ball
room, and a seated supper will be served at midnight
The Vice President and Mrs. Thomas R. Marshall again entertained at a
notable reception on Monday night last, when the rooms reserved for their use
at the Shoreham were filled with prominent diplomats, jurists, Cabinet officers,
Congressmen, and fashionable Washington society.
They will hold two more receptions on the evenings of February 9 and 16.
The reception at the German Embassy on Tuesday night proved a most bril
liant affair. Both the German Ambassador and Countess von Bernstorff are
noted for their gracious hospitality, and the embassy is the rendezvous for not
only the members of the Diplomatic Corps, but the most distinguished residents
of the National Capital, whether in official life or simply winter sojourners here.
Tomorrow will prove "Ambassadors' Night" at the Belasco, when the entire
Corps Diplomatic will attend the first Washington performance of the play,

for the play which will be given throughout the week at the Columbia Theater.
Many prominent society women have taken the boxes for the different perform

The President and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson will give a dinner at the White
