Card Party.
A "three-ring” card party will start
off the new year for the Daughters
of the Americah Revolution when the
State Historical Committee entertains
the District chapters the afternoon
and evening of January 5.
The homes of Mrs. Lee R. Pen
nington, State historian, 12 Taylor
street, Chevy Chase, Md.; Mrs. W. G.
Carter. 16 Taylor street N.W., and
Mrs. Donald Earle, 5045 Reno road
N. W., will be the setting for this
joint party which will be held in
celebration of the beginning of the
biggest project of the District D. A. R.
for the year, the recording of the
names of the signers of the Consti
tution in the "statemen's transept”
■of'-the National Cathedral.
It is expected that the architect's
plan will be ready and the actual work
of carving the names, into the stone
near the entrance built by the women
of America will be started imme
diately after the first of the year.
The original plan called for a bronze
plaque, to be placed in the crypt, but
at the suggestion of the Right Rev. ]
James E. Freeman, Bishop of Wash
ington, and the Cathedral trustees
that the importance of the memorial
warranted a more prominent place, it
was derided to have the names placed
in the stone of the Cathedral itself.
The dedication of the tablet will
take place during the State conference
in March. Mrs. William A. Becker,
president general, has accepted the
invitation of the State regent, Mrs.
Charles Carroll Haig, to attend.
The card party, which is being
sponsored by the State Historic Com
mittee for the benefit of this project,
will not only be held in the homes
of three members, but will progress
throughout the afternoon and eve
fling, with reservations being made
for either 3 p.m. or 8 p.m.
Mrs. Robert A. Bier, 3800 Harrison
street N.W., is general chairman.
Workers’ Movies Asked.
Special motion picture theaters set
aside for working men and their fami
lies who cannot afford to pay more
than 30 cents a ticket, are being de
manded by the South African Labor
party. Told by a movie chain official
in Capetown, that the amusement tax
prevented this, the delegation will ask
the government to revise the tax to
permit establishment of workers’
