ANNUAL RECEPTION BY HOOVER LOOMS President and First Lady to Greet Officials and Public New Year Day. Now that Christmas has come and gone, the President and Mrs. Hoover are turning their attention to the New Year reception, which has been a White House tradition since the earliest days of the Republic. This most popular of White House receptions, which was begun by George and Martha Washington when the Executive Mam-ion was in New York, but which was not held on a really democratic scale until the Madisons took up their residence in the White House, is expected to draw many per sons to the President’s home this year. No Changes in Procedure. So far as is known, there will be no changes in the customary manner of holding this reception. Commencing at 11 o’clock on the morning of January 1, the President and Mrs. Hoover will > station themselves in the famous blue room, which has been used as the formal receiving room in the White House for many years, and during the remainder of the forenoon will receive members of the cabinet, the justices of the Supreme Court. Senators and Rep resentatives and other prominent officers of the Government, including the rank ing officers of the Army, Navy and Ma rine Corps, and the members of the diplomatic corps. At 1 o'clock in the afternoon the doors will be flung wide and the public will be permitted to pass along the line and shake hands with and extend greetings to the President and First Lady. No time limit has been placed on this pub lic part of the New Year reception. The callers will be received just so long as the line continues, regardless of the lateness of the hour. Shook Hands With 4,471 Persons. It was nearly 4 o’clock In the after noon when the last person in the public line last year had passed along the re ceiving line. According to official fig ures, the President and Mrs. Hoover shook hands with 4,471 on that day, their first New Year reception. That number was 1,400 in excess of the total number of persons who passed along the line In 1928, President and Mrs. Coolidge's last New Year reception. In 1929 they were spending the holidays at Sapelo Island, Ga., and the reception was abandoned. 50 HORSES ASSEMBLED FOR YULETIDE “PARTY” Nosebag of Feed in Treat for Each “Guest’’ From Augusta, Ga., Humane Officer.

Sousa, Augusta’s humane officer, sent out invitations several days ago to the horses of the community to come and enjoy his Christmas party. Fifty accepted.

It was pretty tough not to be permitted to nibble from the tree, but the guests stood the ordeal fairly well. Many of the owners who brought their animals to the luncheon them selves had found the matter of eating recently a problem, but other pro visions had been made for them and they, too, enjoyed a full meal, with all the holiday fixin’s.

BwW**T^EMWWlwi ARTISTS TOW BRAZILIAN JUNGLE Scientists in Party Starting for Adventure Land of Matto Grosso.” By the Associated Press. NEW YORK. December 26. —The Matto Grosso, or Great Jungle of Bra zil, where anacondas abound and 12- inch fish have an appetite for human flesh, is the objective of an expedition which will leave here today. Capt. Vladimir Perfllieff, artist and explorer, will lead the 11 photographers, artists, ethnologists, anthropologists, big-game hunters and soldiers of for tune who make up the company. The first sound movie of Jungle noises and native village life in the Matto Grosso is one of the objectives. In addition, zoos will receive live anacon- das, armadillos, tapirs, jaguars, ant eaters, birds, mammals and fish of a hundred varieties. Strange Fish to Be Met. One adventure to which the party looks forward is an encounter with man-eating fish, reported to be only 12 inches long. Called “Piranha," these fish are said to possess heavy Jaws with which they tear the flesh or humans who venture in the water. The expedi tion hopes to bring back a number of these fish alive. The tale is told that the Jaws of the “Piranha" are so strong they are used to clip the hair of natives. Portraits to Be Taken. Capt. Perfllleff plans to make por traits of the Indian natives in their villages. Bis base will be 2,500 miles inland on the Paraguay River, in the heart of South America. Arrangements have been made for weekly radio com munication. Backers of the party include E. R. Fennimore Johnson of Camden. N. J.; P. L. Spalding of Boston, John S. Clarke, Jr., of New York and W.
