Of the two children of the Secretary and Mrs. Davis the younger was a mere infant when March 4 ushered in the new administration, and it seemed in advisable tf> break up the Pittsburgh home until later in the season. Mrs. Davis is now comfortably established and in readiness for the role assigned her ip the distribution of social du ties which Mrs. Harding has planned. It was during her honeymoon that the great world conflagration began, and from that moment Mrs. Davis has led an existence which might be called extraordinarily exciting, for her husband is h native of 'W ales, with tJUi deeplv ingrained love of country-which is characteristic, and he imrtWdiately took over philanthro pies intended to aid the wounded sol diers oMjreat Britain, with his bride ,as first aide and most Sympathetic I t supporter. She was making band ages and gathering old linen for Ked t'ro?s units long before the work ?was regularly organized in Pitts burgh. Later she became an cnegetic member Tof the relief commissions 'which were visiting the war-scarred areas and providing means, both for the rehabilitation of the human wreck* -and the material. But in 1918 iBe. first of the youngsters ar rived. Wit since' then Mrs. Davis interesf'has been -largely centered in ? the nu'riery. though she still gives service in many ways to the various organizations of which her husband is executive head. All of which is an excellent preparation for the larger duties which will fall to her at wife of the Secretary of Uibor. . Mrs. Davis was Miss Jean Roden baugh dT Pittsburgh.

But the pre?cnt season will permit small liberty of choice In the matter of diversion, and with the formal opening of the amen ities olT the winter. Mrs. Davis will be compelled to forego many tempt ing jaunts In which she has joined the Secretary into the environs of Washington. They both enjoy a can ter through the winding paths which are stretched along the Potomac and into the country beyond Great Falls. Since labor is so vital a theme in aH governmental discussions, the Davises will be much sought ^inuor guests at the f???tions being arranged at the White House and at the home of the Secretary of State, complimentary to i ho august guests for the conference. .Mrs. Daiwis is gracious and approach able and has enjoyed all the advan tages and social experience necessary to fit! the difficult role assigned her.
