LENT BRINGS ONLY SLIGHT SURCEASE FROM SOCIAL STRENUOSITIES
' * . : ; : : ? Luncheons and Dinners Break Records of Season Hditesiet Include Mrs. Joseph Thropp, Mrs. ' "Malcolm McConihe, Mrs. T. Dewitt Talmage and Others. By EVELYN C HUNT. 4iiurah, Lent is here! I was certainly never more glad to *ee Alb Wednesday come for we have had such a strenuous season; never a more brilliant one has Washington seen, I'm sure. Now one can eat at home once in a while and actually spend a whole evening with their family occasionally. Not that all entertaining has ceased; far ItOfrf itj> but there isn't the daily whirl of parties with us alt flying around madly trying to take in two or three or perhaps more in an afternoon and then repeating the same performance in the eveniag, too. Often there were as many big important parties in one evening as in a whole week at previous pre-lenten seasons. Quite a few have gone off to Florida or Atlantic City or White Sulphur or the Hot Springs, or perhaps Pinehurst, or some such place, to rest and present for the spring season which gives indication of being quite gay too. This week, ending last night, was quite a full one, but most of the entertainments were crowded into Monday and Tuesday. I am sure thert were as many parties in either one of those days as there will be in any one week from now until Easter. And last Sunday was lively too. There were two big parties last Sunday which were the last of a series connected with the convention of the American Bar Association held here the week before. The president of the Amer- ? president lean Bar Association and Mrs. Cordoni? A. Severance of 8t. Paul gave a dinner in compliment to tho Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court and Mrs. William Howard Taft. Then the Sever ances were honor guests at a bis luncheon given that afternoon by Col. and Mrs. William Eric Fowler. There were several smaller par ties like the musical which Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Pomeroy gave. Also one or two parties planned for Sunday were postponed because of illneaa or death. Sickness seems to be upsetting many dinner lists late, ly; so many people have bad colds or grip In one form or another. MKVKRAI. EWTF.RTAIHMEJOTS t.lVEJT ON SAME DAY. Monday there were three or four entertainments any one of which would have made the day an im portant one in the social annals. There was the opera, for Instance. Samson and Delilah, played by the Washington Opera Company with great success and attended by a brilliant audience. Truly any one of any social standing whata6ever was there; the boxes were filled with numbers of the diplomatic corps, officials and the leaders of resident society, while other smart people crowded the chairs and there was much visiting back and forth and the house was quite as Inter eating aa the opera. Then when It was over most of the audience hur ried down to the New Willard Hotel to attend the ball given for the benefit of the Episcopal Home for Children. A very popular and worthy- eharity. WAIimiGTO* HEED* 11EAU OPERA HOUSE. A book could be written about the many and varied difficulties that had to be overcome to give that opera performance, for one thing after uoth?r occurred that made it leak, as though the thing Just could not be done and yet one by one every difficulty was overcome. In the first place when anything, even a private party, has to be postponed It is never quite the success It would have been if given on the original date. You know that: It is always so. Then the Central High School auditorium though very attractive, didn't tend to the brilliancy of a regular theater with its boxes where the audience could view the fine ladies in their gowns and Jewels. Also I think the acoustics, particularly for music, are bad at the Central High. There is so much steel and concrete. Also the scenery rehear sals and all plans had all been made for a smaller theater which tended to take some of the polished edges off of the final performance, a fact which wasn't true of the Baltimore performance where they did not meet with the same diffi culties. How badly Washington does need a real opera house! The last straw was the announce ment by the fire marshal on the very afternoon of the opera that because there was no asbestos cur tain the show could not go on that night. Think of It, after over coming one obstacle after another, to be told that at the last min ute. Finally the man was brought around to reason, but restricted them so about the use of lights and flower*, fire effects and such things that were part of the spectacular part of the opera and which had all been arranged with such careful consideration and detail. Even the ballet were not allowed to throw petals of flowers about in their dance. TCHEBKIKOFr* DAXtlJlO HIGH SPOT IX OPERA. One of the really professional ?pots in-the opera was the danc ing of 'Paul Tchernikoff who di rected the ballet and was the premier danseur. His work was Just splendid; he is surely an art ist. He came on from New York to direct the ballet and his decided to stay on here at the Capital and has opened a studio in the William A. Slater house at 1731 I street where he already, though estab lished only a few weeks, has a great many pupils. His studio comprise* one of the huge Slater drawing rooms snd their ballroom which la even larger and very good looking. They are joined by large archways. There he Is soing so give a tea on Monday afternoon, March IS when he and some of his pupils Will do several dances. It promises to be a very delightful afternoon and many social leaders have signified to me their In tention of attending. Though a stranger In town, Mr. Tchernikoff has already a wide acquaintance and has aroused a deep interest. You se? he is only partly Russian and Is very well born, a fact which you know the minute you look at him. His wholo name?Isn't it awful to wish such a name on a poor helpless Infant?Is Joseph Francis Paul DeGrasse Doucet Gardner Tchernikoff. He belongs to the line old Gardner family of BostOB where he was born and Is a direct descendant of Comte De GrasfP, of France, who came over In Revolutionary days with Lafay ette to help the colonies in their struggle for freedom. PLAH9 TO STAGR MATINEE SER1K*. This young man?for he 1s young and single and very hand some with all the courtly man ners of the continent?has travelled all over the world and speaks four languages fluently. He Is a grad uate of our own Massachusetts In stitute of Technology too. "Boston Tech** in short. He Is planning next y??r when once well estab lished. here to put on a series of matinees of dancing. He has not yet docided. of %course, the details, "4.. \ but at one matinee there will be an all Chopin program of dances with a prominent pianist. On an other occasion he will give some original ballets and dances. He has worked with Foklne and Adolf Bohm and follows along their lines, to a considerable extent in his art though he also has much originality. I prophesy great things for him. Also that ^afternoon the Con gressional Club gave Its annual breakfast, always a very Interest ing occasion. Practically all of the official women attended and the wives of all of the members of both Houses of Congress, for many of those who don't belong to the club, and they are few, were in vited on this occasion, which Is al ways marked by a most interest ing program put on by the club members. BREAKFAST SO GOOD| PROGRAM SPLENDID. The first three ladles of the land were there, Mrs. Harding. Mrs. Cool Idge and Mr*. Frederick GlUett, and all three wor? black gowns, and bless your heart, of the twenty or more women at the guest-of-honr table?It wis raised and extended the full length of the north side of th? large ballroom?only four did not wear black. Fully half. If not more, of those seated at the small tables also had on black costumes. It was. taking It as a whole, a very smartly-dressed gathering of women, a gathering of women from all States in the Union. The break fast was so good and the program which followed was just splendid. I think as a rule one is terribly bored at those entertainments when somebody almost always talks too long, or something of the sort, but not so lest Monday. Their program was Just too clever for words, and didn't drag for a second, and one good laugh followed right on top of another. The program was a femi nine version of "Tlpe Mirrors of Washington." but which could more rightly hare been dubbed "Mirrors of Congress and the Congressional Club." They reflected in a most amusing manner occurrences In both of those bodies. There were many dinner parties that evening, a great many given by those having boxes at either the opera or the ball. Then the French Ambassador and Mme. Jus serand were the honor guests at a dinner which the Swiss Minister and Mme. Marc Peter gave. The commandant of the Washington Navy Yard, Capt. and Mrs. John H. Dayton were hosts at dinner that evening in compliment to the Secretary of the Navy and Mrs. Edwin Denby. Mr. and Mrs. Theo dore Noyes had guests for dinner as did Mrs. Emerson Howe and a dozen others. Mme. Sze, wife of the Chinese Minister, had a lunch eon party asking the guests to meet Mrs. John W. Davis, wife of the former Ambassador from this, country to Great Britain, who came to Washington with her hus band for the bar conference. MARY DISTINGUISHED WOMEN ENTERTAINED. There were almost as many luncheons as there were dinners. Mrs. Joseph Thropp had ~a group of distinguished ladies lunching with her as did Mrs. Malcolm Mc Conihe. Mrs. T. DeWItt Talmage and Mrs. Thomas Dunn gave a large reception together and Mrs. William D. Connor, wife of Gen. Connor had a bridge party. A number of Washingtonians went over to Baltimore Monday evening t*. at*end the last of the Bachelors* Cotillons over there. They, always attract *nany from the Capital. Mrs. Julian Carter gave a dinner before the Bachelors last Monday in honor of Gen. John Pershing and Gen. George O. Squier. Others went up to Philadelphia for the bal masque, there Tuesday was just as "bad." That was the evening that the Secre tary of Agriculture and Mrs. Henry O. Wallace entertained at dinner for President and Mrs. Harding. . A large percentage of their guests were from Des Moines which Is the* Wallaces' home town. The gew Senator from Iowa and Mrs. Charles Rawson were there and a few notables like Gen. Per shing. The French Ambassador and Mme. Jusserand had a dinner party as did the Swedish Minister and Mme. Wallenberg. The Bel gian Ambassador and Baroness de Cartler were honor guests at a dinner which Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Meyer, jr.. gave; later in the even ing additional guests were asked for a musicale. The commandant of the Marine Corps, Maj. Gen. and Mrs. John A. Lejeune asked guests to dine with them to meet the Assistant Secretary, of the Navy and Mrs. Theodore Roose velt. The Assistant to the Attor ney General and Mrs. Guy D. Goff gave a dinner Tuesday to honor the West Virginia delegation In Congress. Congress as a whole or particular groups of that body seem to be getting honored lots lately! The Counselor of the British Em bassy and Mrs. Henry Getty Chil ton gave M dinner party Tuesday evening as did the Willard Sauls bury s. The Sons of the Confederate Veterans had a Mardi Graa ball that evening and that afternoon Mrs. Frank Hight had a luncheon party In compliment to the well known authoress, Frances Parkin soy Keyes. wife of 8enator Henry Wilder Keyes: Mrs. Theodore Noyes gave a luncheon.
