Women Hear Address On Peace Member of House Is Speaker in Chevy Chase. PREVENTION of war is the moRt important matter before the country today, according to former Representative Jeanette Rankin, who spoke before the Civic Section of the Chevy Chase Woman’s Club yesterday afternoon, in the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church. “We are etlll trying to recover from the effects of the last war, and it would take a thousand years to recover from the effect* of another one,’’ she said. In discussing woman suffrage, Miss Rankin said it was necessary to have both masculine and feminine view points on public questions. “One of the most valuable results of the grant ing of woman suffrage has been that women now form opinions with the thought of expressing themselves at the polls, and no longer study public questions from the theoretical stand point alone. Women’s part in govern ment and legislation is anything that ha* to do with children,” she added. “Women have fallen down on their Job in any country where there are hungry children and a surplus of food at, the same time.” William S. Canning, chief engineer ing director of the Keystone Automo bile Club, also spoke, his subject being traffic control. He told of the prog ress in the last 10 years towards de veloping uniform codes and signs. He *aid nine States now have traffic en gineering departments which study the causes of accidents and give advice on road construction designed to cor rect conditions that cause accidents. The program was arranged by the Committee on Resolutions and Legis lation, of which Mrs. W. F. Henry is the chairman. Mrs. E. A. Helmuth, chairman of the section, presided.

OLAND HAYES, celebrated colored tenor, opened this season's concert course spon sored by the Howard Univer sity with a recital last evening at the Armstrong High School auditorium. He was accompanied, as has been his custom for several years, by Percival Parham and the two artists are so splendidly united in purpose that to gether they provide an evening of rare musical enjoyment. The program was a select one evidently chosen with special care and because of the par ticular suitability to Mr. Hayes’ un usual gift of interpretation. And because of thus great power in projecting the full idea of a song and for immediately creating the proper atmosphere surrounding it, a recital! by Mr. Hayes is different from that of any other artist. His voice is not a strong one nor, today, as supple as it once was, but he knows how to use it to extract every particle of beauty which the text and the music contain. Last evening he was in excellent form. While he preferred to use a mezzo forte tone for the most part, he gave variety to it by a ringing volume at times and again by diminishing to a whisper of sound. But this technical knowledge, to gether with his clear diction, is the least of his art. Par greater is his deep penetration into the soul of the music he sings and his power of projecting it to the last detail over to his listeners. There is reverence in his singing for every phrase of music and every poetic thought of the text. He handles them lovingly, lending the warmth of his vocal organ to the varying moods they express. It is this understanding of the value of every word and note in building up the whole that makes his art at once great and simple. * * * * Yesterday, because of the type of his program, it was like looking at exquisite miniatures, seeing the delicate coloring and noting the beau tiful workmanship of the creator. There was no number programmed that would sweep the audience off its feet because of the drama or the pyrotfchnics which it contained. They were lovely, poetic songs that only a poetic singer can successfully pre sent. His first group was classic with two excerpts from Bach's cantatas, the "Only Be Still” from "Wer Nur Leben Gott Least Walten” and "La Pipe” from a secular cantata. These were balanced by a lovely rendition of Lotti's "Pur di Cesti” and a little Schwabischer folk song, "The Lan thorn.” Pour songs by Schubert formed another group, "Eifersucht und Stolz” from “Die Schoefie Muellerin,” “Dass Sir Hier, Gewesen,” “Hark, Hark, the Lark” and “Du Bist Die Ruh.” As beautifully as these numbers were delivered, the climax of Mr. Hayes’ art was heard in the four spirituals arranged by himself or Mr. Parham, "I'll Make Me a Man,” "Bye and Bye,” "My God Is So High” and "Little Boy.” Here the simple faith that spoke of the Lord with reverence’ yet companionship was beautifully stressed in a musical setting' that gave every opportunity to Mr. Hayce’ superior ability at tender musical picturization. The program concluded with four song- cameos, the Ghetto song by Alexander Krein, “Prief and Sorrow,” the short “My Little Pool” by Nicholius Slonimsky, Charles Griffes' “A Sym phony in Yellow” and “A Brazilian African Fetiche Chant” harmonised bv Villa-Lobos.

'y'HE Friday Evening Dancing Class. a group which has met several times each season since the World War, opened its season last evening at the Willard.

The perfect hostess Is the woman who does not act any differently when she is entertaining 200 people than she does if she is having three women for luncheon. That sizes up the Hugh Auchincloss house, Merrywood, in McLean, Va., and Mrs. Auchincloss. Last night when entertaining some 150—we did not count, but there were a lot of people there—Merrywood appeared as lovely as ever. Chrysanthemums, large and small, shaggy and button type, were everywhere, but to any one who knows Merrywood, that is not an unusual sight. As for Mrs. Auchin closs, her dress of soft moss green was perfection and Hugh D. was, as always, cordial and unconcerned, the true test of the born host. For entertainment they imported from New York the well known Marion Chase. Her singing and playing is excellent and some of her new songs surpass any we have heard her sing before. Wearing a midnight blue lace dress, made very high in the neck with puffed sleeves, she looked more willowly than ever and the ease with which she plays the piano accompanying herself is marvelous. Every one sat in the living room to hear Miss Chase. With so many guests, the floor was a favorite resting place and it was more than interesting to see that some people can sit on the floor with grace, while others—but for the most part, | those who can mot get up and down with ease were comfort ably ensconced on comfortable chairs and sofas. / There was a sprinkling of black and white ties, but the ladies almost entirely, were dressed in their best bibs and tuckers Countess van der Straten-Ponthoz’s white satin gleamed forth while nearby Mr|. Warren Robbins’ mauve tinted hair was visible above a black dress. Donna Matilde de Suvich seemed to thoroughly enjoy the amusing songs, for is there any one with a better sense of humor than the wife of the Italian Ambassador? Mrs Wallach Merriam, in royal red velvet, was joined by Mary Lou Marsh, look ing tall and pretty in a gray dress trimmed with gold kid, and the person in the dress of firemen’s red turned out to be Mrs. William MacCracken. The Polish Ambassador, with a red carnation in his but ton hole, arrived a bit late and on the stairs during supper we found Mrs. Carroll Glover in a paisley dress looking so attractive and deep in conversation with Richard Bates of the United States Navy. In snowy white with a glistening gold belt, Mrs. Roger Cortesi appeared with Roger and Mr. and Mrs. Geoffrey Platt of New York. Mrs. Platt, oefore her marriage Helen Choate, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph H. Choate, is tall and stately and last night wore an off-white > dress just the right color for her redish hair. Mrs Mondell Gregg’s pale-blue gown contrasted nicely with the black of Miss Irene Boyle’s dress as they sat by the fire with Henry Hoyt of New York and Tony Balasy of the Hungarian Lega tion, and across the room on one of the lovely sofas sat Mme Prochnik with Mrs. Jouett Shouse, Mrs. Eldridge Jordan and Mrs. Mark Bristol. Joining the school of thought that black is the color, we noted Mrs. Higgins Chapin, whose smart, simple black dress was devoid of trimming, but with it she wore a wide gold band in her hair ? 11? match about her throat; Rebecca Wellington in trailing black, looked terribly smart and Mrs. Mathews Dick’s black dress was trimmed with three or four huge pinkish flowers which reached from the vee of the neck to the waist. Wandering into the dining room to the buffet after Miss Chase had sung for some time, we heard that wonderful t sound, which just could not be anything but the voice of Sir Willmott Lewis—it is too bad there are not more voices like his in the world. After a delectable supper had been enjoyed by all Miss Chase resumed her singing to the guests, who were able to remain longer, which was perfect, for with a smaller crowd one could request favorite songs and on far into the night the obliging Marion tickled the keys of the grand piano and warbled her amusing songs to an enthusi astic and admiring audience. AND FY ^IEu^Ay~^alter Edee is on the three-thirty train leav i1?- Washington this afternoon! She was present last night, to our delight however, somewhat to our surprise, but she is off today with a threat not to return until March.
