Congressional Country Course
on July 9.
Party of 150 Members and Guests
to Go Out in Autos.
Plans for the annual outing' were
Initiated on an elaborate scale at the
meeting of the Optimist Club yester
day when It was decided to accept the
hospitality of the Congressional Club
for the afternoon and evening of
July 9.
Joseph A. Burkart, chairman of the
outing committee, announced that ar
rangements already had reached more
than a preliminary stage. It is ex
pected that upward of 150 members
of the luncheon club will be in at
tendance and that most of these will
be accompanied by friends.
Among the tentative arrangements
is a proposal for an Optimist Cara
* van. to meet in the center of the city
and proceed as an automobile fleet to
the country club. Harry Angelico
has arranged a program of songs by
the "glee gang” which will be sung
as the caravan winds it way through
the city and into the country. A
large orchestra will be divided Into
segments en route and will plan for
the members as they proceed on the
Satirical Sk|t Planned.
A number of novelties will serve to
entertain guests during the after
noon. One is a skit which is being
prepared by the dramatic committee
of the organization headed by Frank
Peirce. He promises to have a
satire ready which will make cer
tain highlights in the District laugh
at themselves.
Dinner will be served In the main
dining hall at the country club, and
dancing will follow.
Chairman Burkart of the arrange
ments committee, in making his re
port yesterday, pointed out that the
"Uting would give members who
have not yet had the privilege an
N opportunity of viewing the elaborate
'■ountry club facilities which have
recently been thrown open by the
Congressional Country Club.
Members will bring wives, or
sweethearts or sisters or daughters
on the outing, as is Customary.
