Advertising Club Sponsors
Luncheon for Woodward
& Lothrop’s.
The fiftieth anniversary of the found
ing of Woodward & Lothrop's depart
ment store, one of the National Capi
tal’s largest and oldest commercial
institutions, was celebrated with a
luncheon sponsored by the Washington
Advertising Club in the National Press
Club yesterday, when more than 350
men, representative of business and of
ficial Washington, Joined in paying
tribute to the store and to the princi
ples which have dominated its business
The occasion was featured by the
promise of W. W. Everett, vice presi
dent and general manager of the store,
that, beginning March 1, plans will be
begun for an even larger and better
store, “so that when our seventy-fifth
anniversary comes around in 1955 we
still w’ill be a store worthy of the
Nation's Capital as the Capital will be
at that time. We believe the wonder
ful improvements that are now being ,
wrought in our city will attract many
new and desirable citizens from other
States, and that Washington and the
surrounding country will be far larger '
and better than It is today.”
Reminiscences of the early days of ,
Washington's commercial life, when ad- ,
vertising was in its infancy and Wood- !
ward & Lothrop's had published in The j
Star its first display advertisement, ,
which was run unchanged for two weeks,
marked Mr. Everett's address.
Distinguished Guests.
William Knowles Cooper, vice presi- !
dent of Crane, Parris & Co., investment
bankers, was the other speaker. The '
presence of Commissioner Proctor L.
Dougherty and Lieut. Col. U. S. Grant. ,
3d, director of the Office of Public ;
Buildings and Public Parks, lent an offi
cial touch to the meeting.
Ernest S. Johnston, president of the
Advertising Club, presided. At the ,
speakers’ table were Mr. Everett and
Mr.' Cooper, Commissioner Dougherty,
Col. Grant, Donald Woodward, presi- ,
dent of the store; George N. Everett,
vice president; Max Fischer, treasurer;
B. W. Parker, a director; John Poole,
president of the Federal American Na
tional Bank: William S. Corby, Robert
Ripley, the cartoonist; Martin A. Leese,
to whom was recently awarded the
Cosmopolitan Medal for Washington’s
most valuable citizen during 1929, and
Milton R. Baker, manager of radio sta
tion WMAL.
There were 50 tables, each bearing a
candle, representative of a year in the
life of the store. The ceremonies ware
begun with the lighting of the candles.
Charles J. Columbus, managing di
rector of the advertising club, spoke
briefly of the employes of the firm and
read a list of old employes, many of
whom had completed more than 40
years’ service.
Details Store's History.
Mr. Everett gave a detailed history of
the growth of the store, pointing out
the many trade innovations in which
Woodward & Lothrop’s was the pioneer,
and their lead in establishing F street
as the principal shopping thoroughfare
of the city.
The first store occupied a small build
ing at 705 Market Space, he related,
and was called the “Boston Dry Goods
House.” Associated with Samuel W.
Woodward and Alvin M. Lothrop in the
enterprise was Charles E. Cochrane.
This store had a floor area of only
I, square feet.
The business gradually outgrew its
small quarters. More and more com
modious buildings were occupied, until
the business was moved to its present
site, at the corner of Eleventh and F
streets, in 1887. The acquisition of the
entire block, now owned by the firm,
with the exception of the northwest
comer of Tenth and F streets, was slow,
but in 1912 it was accomplished.
The speaker traced the change in
business methods and conveniences
from 1880 to the present day, laying
particular stress on the strict ad
herence of those who guided the
destiny of the store to the sound and
honest principles that motivated the
conduct of the founders.
Began in Boston.
Mr. Cooper presented a historical
sketch of the founders, with whom
he was on Intimate terms. He said that
Mr. Woodward and Mr. Lothrop began
business in Boston, later moving to
the neighboring City of Chelsea. After
an extensive survey of various Eastern
cities they selected Washington as the
site for a store, being convinced that
the Capital City had a bright commer
cial future.
Among the principles for which they
always stood, he declared, were truth
in advertising, the one-price system and
the “retum-if-not-satisfactory” plan.
The store has grown to such propor
tions, he pointed out, that it now em
ploys 2,000 persons, 23 having been
with the firm for 40 years or more and
132 having served for 25 years.
The annual good fellowship dinner of
the Twenty-Year Club, composed of
employes who have been with Wood
ward & Lothrop 20 years, was held last
night at the Raleigh Hotel.
The invocation was given by T. E.
Klbbey, following which the members
stood and paid silent tribute to the
founders of the business.

J. A. Hobson, president of the club,
made a brief address, in which he spoke

sisting of H. E. Mockbee, W. H. Lehman

Pennsylvania avenue 50 years ago, told
of ft number of interesting events dur
ing the early years of their employ
The principal address was given by

tions. A two-act play, under the direc

Inhabitants Take to Streets as Mat
ter of Precaution, but No
Damage Is Reported.
By the Associated Press.
CALEXICO, Calif., February 26
Residents of Imperial Valley and the
Northern District of Lower California,
in Mexico, today recovered from the
scare caused by an earthquake yes
The major shock, of 15 seconds’dura
tion, occurring at 6:25 p.m., was of
sufficient intensity to forewarn the
valley inhabitants of possibly stiffer
jolts to come and many of them took
to the streets as a matter of precaution.
When no further shock was felt until
7:50 p.m., and that of considerably
lessened intensity, the temporary alarm
No damage was reported from any
section, although buildings were rocked
perceptibly by the first jolt.
How far the earthquake extended into
Mexico could not be determined.
Mexicali, capital of the Northern Dis
trict of Lower California, felt it, but
the district of the south is sparsely
settled, and no reports of disturbances
came from there.

California Court Decision Bars
Marriages Between Filipino*
and White Girls.
By the Associated Press.
LOS ANGELES, February 26. —The
ruling of Superior Judge J. A. Smith
that Filipinos are of the Mongolian race
and therefore ineligible to marry whites
In California was declared by legal au
thorities here today to have opened
the way for invalidation of more than
100 marriages performed in this State.
Authorities said the ruling did not
automatically invalidate marriages of
Filipinos and whites performed since
the passage of the state miscegena
tion law, but that it affords legal
grounds for invalidation proceedings to
be brought in individual cases.
The ruling was returned yesterday by
Judge Smith in granting a permanent
writ prohibiting issuance of a marriage
license to Tony V. Moreno, 24, Filipino,
and Ruby Robinson, 22-year-old white
girl. The writ was requested two weeks
ago by Mrs. Stella A. Robinson, mother
of the girl.
County Counsel Everett Matoon had
contended Filipinos are of the Malayan
branch of the Caucasian race.
