Annual Arts Club Fancy
Dress Affair Draws 2,000
The streets of Cairo, with a decided
American flavor, cast a lurid light across
Capital social life at the Willard Hotel
last night when the Arts Club of Wash
ington gave its annual costume ball.
With nearly 2,000 persons in the gayest
of costumes, gayest of spirits and in a
setting suited to the humor of the com
oany, the ball will do down as being the
most complete fancy dress affair seen
here in years.
The Minister of Egypt and Mme.
Sarny sat enthroned in the box of honor,
which occupied the center of the side
wall, and were delighted and amused
at the American viewpoint of Egyptian
art, though some of the really artistic
features were secured through the
courtesy of the Minister. Also lending
distinction to the ball were the Minister
of Persia, Mirza Davoud Phan Neftah,
and the Minister of Panama and Senora
de Alfaro, as well as representatives
from the Turkish embassy and other
embassies and legations.
There was a revel in the streets of
Cairo of diplomats, Senators and Rep
resentatives in Congress and other of
ficials and many society folk. But, of
course, the artists of Washington and
members of the Arts Club lent the chief
charm, furnishing the real atmosphere
for the party.
Egyptian Setting for the Ball.
The ballroom setting gave a rosy glow
to an Egyptian street, the boxes and
lighting carrying out the idea, while the
Caliph. Dr. Frederick V. Coville, in
gorgeous raiment formed the center of
attraction in the Egyptian Temple at the
far end of the ballroom, the pillared
edifice with its lofty entrance showing
divans, hangings, low tables filled with
brass and copper receptacles for use
and ornament and over all a W'eird blue
and rose color light.
Guests were greeted on the ballroom
floor with a bit of desert life, presided
over by L. M. Leisenring. with a snake
charmer, a dancer, a camel which later
did overtime on the ballroom floor, and
many interesting features within the
tent that added to the comfort of
Programs were dispensed with and
guests were kept wondering as to the
features to occupy the main street.
Perhaps aside from genuinely artistic
value, the American group doing a tour
of Cairo, furnished the most laughs.
Seeing ourselves as others see us—in
Egypt—was the snappy feature pre
sented by the faculty and students of
the Abbot School, and with field
glasses, luggage of every kind, costumed
for either mountain climbing or attend
ing grand opera, the entire skit was
one of the best presented.
The grand caliph arrived at 11
o'clock—Dr. Coville, president of the
Arts Club, heralded by trumpeters in
Egyptian costumes of black and white,
and blowing their long silver trumpets,
made way for him down the ballroom,
six royal runners preceding him. The
dignitaries of the court in grand attire
were in procession, as were street fol
lowers of every kind. The lone camel
made his debut and carried precious
freight, not only for the opening scene,
but for the greater part of the evening,
many whimsical guests enjoying the
fun. The lusty “O wa, O wa.” furnished
agreeable noise and atmosphere.
Costumes Judged.
The judges awarded the first prize,
that for the most beautiful costumes, to
John A. Detweller, who was dressed as
Ramesis, in a gayly decorated panel
like gown and a gold headdress like a
halo about his head and outlined his
figure to below the knees. His com
panion was Miss Mary Scaife. who wore
an authentic Egyptian costume of much
The second prize was given to
Senora de Prieto, wife of the military
attache of the Cuban embassy, as hav
ing the most interesting costume. It
was of gold cloth, made with trousers,
full at the hips and tight about the
ankles, a tight-fitting, coatlike, sleeve
less bodice which had a peplum cut
circular and wired to stand out from
the body. The whole was embroidered
in gayly colored stones which formed
wide bands, and her headdress was in
keeping with the Egypt of that period.
She carried a doll, a complete repro
duction of her own costume.
The third prize was awarded to Miss
Margaret Russell Roller as being the
most amusing. She appeared as a “tele
phone" doll, her bouffant skirt of flesh
color satin edged with lace and having
panniers of pale blue satin, also edged
with lace. Her bodice was tight fitting
and had a vest of lace through which
Min Roller looked and breathed and
spoke. The snow-white neck, shoulders
and the dainty head topped with a
powdered wig perched where Miss Rol
ler's hat should have been. Her com
panion was F. C. Crass, who walked be
tween the pages of a giant telephone
directly and constantly rang the tele
phone bell.
Among the unusual costumes were
those of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Thiss,
he dressed in white, with a South
African hat, and she appearing as a
mummy. She was bound in natural
color burlap, her face bound in white,
and her case was of the burlap and
labeled on the back “Prof. G. A.
Reisers Harvard Exposition." Last
Winter Mrs. Thiss won a prize by her
costume of “A Bride and Bridegroom.”
Mr. Thiss was the minister last year.
Senora de Alafaro, wife of the Min
ister of Panama, wore a charming cos
tume of white made in flounces and
over hoops. Each flounce had a narrow
band of embroidery in black and was
edged with a narrow ruffle of white.
The tight-fitting bodice had dropped
shoulders and tiny little short sleeves,
with several narrow ruffles, each edged
with threads of black. On her head she
had two narrow bands, which held large
clusters of forget-me-nots over each
Capt. Frank McCarthy, U. S. A., ap- i
peared as an Egyptian beggar, with j
greenish-black burlap hung from one j
shoulder, a large bulky bundle in burlap .
hung from the other shoulder and an
old, generous-brimmed soft hat was
pulled down over one eye and ear, and
his skin was a dark and swarthy red.
He carried a tambourine in which to
drop the coin extracted by his begging.
“Old Crow" was there in a brown jug
and his name painted on a white label
across one side. The neck and stopper
of the jug covered the head of Robert

A musical divertissement, with selec
tions including full symphonic orches
trations and piano, violin and vocal
solos, was offered last evening by the
students and orchestra of the Insti
tute of Musical Art. at the Vermont
Avenue Christian Church. Most of the
soloists, as well as many of the mem
bers of the orchestra group, were quite
youthful artists, showing fresh spirit
and vitality, combined with whatever
technical excellence each possessed in
his own right.
Beethoven's “Prometheus" overture,
bv the orchestra, under the baton of
Dr. C. E. Christiani, opened the eve
ning’s program. Strangly, though it
was the opening number —and thus
pardonable for any flaws it might show
—this overture struck the reviewer as
the mo3t capably handled orchestration
of the evening, with better balance of
tone throughout than in either of the
j two later numbers.
Another Beethoven selection —the
“Sonata Pathetique”—was played with
vigor, and a deft touch by Frances
Griffin Villaret, pianist. She was fol
lowed by Flora Marguerite Clayton in
two violin numbers, the last of which
was Gardener’s attractive “Front the
Mortimer Davenport, Ringing Han
del’s “Oh. Sleep, Why Dost Thou
Leave Me,” and two popular Schumann
numbers. “Ich Grolle Nich," and “Du
Bist Wie Eine Blume,” displayed an ex
cellent natural voice, with true tone
and easy placement, but far from ro
bust. It is much more important at
his age that .Mr. Davenport cultivate
his delivery and musicianship, as he
appears to have done. There are al
ready too many powerful singers in the
world, and far too few careful ones.
“Du Bist Wie Eine Blume,” for its
romantic feeling, was well, if quietly,
The orchestra’s rendition of the alle
gro moderato and andante con moto,
from “Schubert’s Unfinished Sym
phony, lacked the co-ordination which
the introductory number had. It was,
in passages, an absolutely lifeless thing,
with a disconcerting lack of agreement
among the various units, both as to
tone and spirit.
One of the most confident players on
the evening’s list was Victor George,
who went at some of Sarasate's gvpsy
airs in no uqcertain. terms, albeit with
agile fingering and clever bow work. He
was rewarded with the greatest ap
plause given any artist of the evening.
Glenn B. Carow, a youth in knee
trousers, had all the savoir faire he
needed, in addition to his technical
equipment, to give a correct and sure
interpretation of a Chopin-Liszt "Polish
Song.” It was marked by good finger
ing and pedaling; the whole rendition
bespoke practice.
Ida WillLs Seaton followed with two j
numbers, rendered in a placid fashion,!
with occasional warm tones. The first 1
selection was marked, too, by the violin
obbligato of Frieda Hauf Irwin, the or
chestra’s concert master. The second
number was Schubert’s “The Young
Nun,” an appealin gthing when given
with proper dramatic stress.
The long singing tones of the
“Berceuse” from Massenet’s “Jocelyn”
were well brought out by Virginia Cure
ton in the succeeding violin selections.
The second selection was one from
Wieniawski. Dr. Christiani played the
accompaniment excellently.
The Verdi-Liszt “Rigolctto” para- j
phrase, played by Martin A. Dowd, j
easily marked the piano high peak of i
the evening, strongly and colorfully I
given. Mr. Dowd, with Katherine Wells,
played the evening’s accompaniments
for the other artists.
The orchestra's rendition of a suite
from the “Sigurd Jorsalfar” of Grieg
concluded the concert. It was marked
by much more sympathy between the
several units of the group than was ap
parent in the Schubert work.

Men Who Failed to Pass
Tests Two Years Ago
Are Ousted.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK, January 29 —Forty of
the mast experienced enforcement
agents on the staff of Maurice Camp
bell. prohibition administrator, who
failed to pass their civil service exami
nations in June, 1927, will lose their
jobs by Thursday. By one way or an
other, Maj. Campbell has managed to
postpone until now the day when these
men, some of whom are reputed to be
the most expert of the night club raid
ers, pay the penalty for their scholastic
Further postponement being impossi
ble. Maj. Campbell has tried to miti
gate the pain of parting by permitting !
the men to resign before they are au- j
tomatically dropped from the rolls.
Maj. Campbell announced that ap
pointments from the civil service regis
ters already have been made to com
plete his squad of 200 agents.
Maj. Campbell admitted that these
40 agents failed to pass tests given al- j
most two years ago, but did not explain ;
how they have retained their jobs for i
many months. He held out a ray of j
hope for the men, whose identity he j
refused to reveal, by pointing out that j
they had taken the second civil service j
examinations last December, and that !
if they w’ere found to have passed those
tests, they w'ould become eligible for re- !
appointment. The December examina
tions were said to to have been much
easier than the first ones.
Maj. Campbell also said that he be- j
lieved the New’ York district force had
ecme through the first eliminations
with one of the highest percentages
of passing marks in the country. How
ever, it is knowm that replacements of
New York City agents, who failed, have
been made steadily during the last four
or five months, and that the Newr York
City dry force had more than 50 per
cent of failures in the tests. The local
force, after February, will be thoroughly
civil serviced.
In church history flagellants were a
body of morbid fanatics of Southern
and Central Europe, in the thirteenth
and fourteenth centuries, who sought
to secure the pardon of sin by walking
in procession bared to the waist and
scourging themselves until the blood;

Fine Arts Chairman Gives
Final Lecture of Series at
Catholic University.
The building of a Washington to be
the world’s most beautiful city was ex
plained in detail, with more than 100
lantern slide illustrations, by Charles
Moore, chairman of the Commission of
Fine Arts, addressing delegations from
more than 30 colleges and houses of
study, in the final lecture of the Winter
course at Catholic University last night.
Mr. Moore was introduced by Dr.
Edward A. Pace, vice rector of the
university, as the one man who for
more than 30 years has taken the lead
ing part in development of the Capital
City, especially in bringing the modern
situation into harmony with the orig
inal Wasliington-L'Enfant plan. He
compared Washington's harmonious
embellishment with the other great
capitals of the world and showed that
here the ideals of the historians, archi
tects, sculptors, landscape architects
and city planners are being preserved
as nowhere else in all the w-orld.
Background Traced.
The historic background of the Cap
ital was traced by Mr. Moore with in-
I teresting sidelights on the life of
; Washington, the founder. He pledged
early recreation of'the house at Wake
field in w'hich Washington was bom.
He showed the old world beauty spots
that L’Enfant had in mind, the wealth
of architecural and scenic beauty that
was supplied in large part by Jefferson,
who combed all civilization for such
material, and out of this atmosphere
the plans for the Federal City were

described the many stupendous, co

for the Capital City now in progress,
with contrasting pictures illustrating
how incongruities have been wiped
away, and Washington, through the
years, brought up to the original ideal
expanded to meet new conditions of
the growing Capital.
Illustrations Showed.
A series of illustrations showed how
these improvements through the Fed

Bridge. Rock Creek and Potomac Park

cipal center, the clearing away of the
Botanic Gardens to make way for

the Capitol, are being carried forward,
to culminate in a wonderful spectacle
for the 200th anniversary of Washing

Mr. Moore showed pictures of Trinity
College Chapel, which he described as
one of the most chastely beautiful and
exquisite structures in the world; of the
new Mullen Memorial Library at Catho
lic University and of the crypt and •
proposed superstructure of the National i
Shrine, being erected on the university |
campus—all of which, he said, are I
worthy to be placed among the most
beautiful buildings which are giving
character to the City of Washington.
