PRESIDENT AND MRS. HOOVER ,
will be entertained at dinner
Tuesday evening by the Secretary
of Agriculture and Mrs. Hyde
and tomorrow the Secretary of
Interior and Mrs. Wilbur will be hosts
to the Chief Executive and First Lady
of the Land.
The annual state dinner for the chiefs
of foreign missions in Washington was i
given by President and Mrs. Hoover |
last evening when the Ambassador of
Peru, Senor Dr. Herman Velarde, made |
his first appearance as dean of the corps
at this Capital. Dr. Velarde presented j
his credentials March 24, 1924, and the
retiring Ambassador of Great Britain,'
Sir Esme Howard, was received March \
5 of that year. With the retirement
of Sir Esme Howard as ambassador, Dr. |
Velarde took his place at the head of |
the corps. The dinner last evening was |
the first large entertainment that Presi- j
dent and Mrs Hoover have given for j
the diplomats, although they entertained j
at dinner in honor of the Belgian
Ambassador and Princess de Ligne early j
in their administration and before going I
South a fortnight ago they gave a
dinner party in compliment to the
retiring Ambassador of Great Britain
and Lady Isabella Howard,
The large number of foreign missions
in Washington necessitated a long table
Bet in the shape of a horse shoe which
stretched from the west windows in the
state dining room to the east wall and
the length of the room. Columbia roses,
pink snapdragons and sweetpeas with
gloriosum fern were used in the dainty
vases of the gold service and in low
mounds at intervals on the table.
There were few of the countries ac
credited to this Capital that were not
represented at the dinner last evening.
The Minister of Denmark, Mr. Con
stantin Brun, was unable to attend be
cause of indisposition: the Minister of
Panama and Senora de Alfaro are in
mourning; the Minister of Colombia,
Senor Dr. Olaya, is in his own country,
where he was recently elected Presi
dent. and the Minister of Rumania, Mr.
Charles A. Davila, is in New York, pre
paratory to sailing for a short vacation
