We heard from Lucius Wilmerdlng that his sister Helen and Philip Bastedo are coming down to stop ches Wilmerdlng for the party. The engagement of Helen Wilmerdlng and Philip Bastedo was announced last week in New York and their wedding is to take place in February. Jimmy Mitchell tells us that Mr. and Mrs. Albert Francke, jr., also are coming down from New York for that week end. Mrs. Francke before her marriage was Eleanor Fits Gerald and each year she and her husband make a visit here, last Winter they stopped with Mrs. Letter, but this trip they will be with the James F. Mitchells. * * JN SOME respects January 20 is a day which is not to be looked forward to—that is, if you are the kind of person who dislikes crowds. Just in case the date has slipped your mind, it is Inauguration day! Already the stands are going up on Pennsylvania avenue by leaps and bounds, and reser vations are being made at every hotel in the city. To our way of thinking, the best part of the day will be the dance at the 1925 P Street Club. The secretary of the dances, of which this is the third and last, Pete de Sibour, is nearly crazed, as the quota is 200 and the members are very lax about notifying nim whether or not they will be on hand. This causes endless trouble, as it is impossible to know how many reservations can be made for out-of-town guests. This is a warning to those who have joined these club dances to communicate with Vet. de Sibour right away. * * * * ^JOL. AND MRS. JOHN GREELYS gay and hospitable house on Courtland place was the scene of a farewell party for Baroness Mabel von Nagel, who departs soon for Europe, leaving her attractive auburn-haired daughter Vica in New York, to study chemistry at Columbia University.

Since her mother arrived in America two months ago, Alix has become engaged to a young man her mother has never met, though she knows his family well. So, within six weeks there will be a "reunion in Munich," the former home of the Von Nagels, when Alix will marry Count Hubert Deym Stritez of Czechoslovakia, whose extensive estates are in Silesia. The bride's father, the late Baron Charles von Nagel aus Aichberg was chamberlain to the late King of Bavaria, holding also the rank of major general In the Bavarian Army.
