By the Way
(Continued From Page B-3.) mandant of the Navy Yard and Mrs. George Pettengill, who are “at home” on Mondays several times during the season. We dropped in first at the commandant's lovely old house at the Marine Barracks, where to our delight we found many old friends calling on Gen. and Mrs. Holcomb. Mrs. Holcomb before her marriage was Beatrice Clover, and the residence of her parents, the late Rear Admiral and Mrs. Richardson Clover during her debutante days was the rendezvous for Washington’s younger set. Added interest to the reception of the Marine Corps couple was the presence of Miss Eudora M. Clover, who is spending a month with her brother-in-law and sister. Mrs. Holcomb, wearing black with sequins, received icith the General in the drawing room. Capt. Cornelius P. Van Ness announced the guests, while the Marine Band Orchestra played lively selections. The brilliant scarlet jackets of the musicians added a splash of color to the scene and con ' spicuous on the wall of the drawing room was the portrait of the late Gen. George Barnett, war-time commandant of the Corps. Assisting in the dining room were Mrs. William D. Leahy, Mrs. James C. Breckinridge, Mrs. Thomas C. Hart, Mrs. E. W. Sturdevant, Mrs. John M. Enochs, Mrs. L. D. Hermle, Mrs. A. H. Vandergrift, Mrs. Clyde H. Metcalf, Mrs. Paul Drake and Mrs. Cornelius P. Van Ness. * * * * | on to the Navy Yard to pay our respects to Admiral and Mrs. Pettengill in their attractive house at the Navy Yard. We were so fascinated with their charming residence that we made a complete inspection, even transgressing as far as the sleeping quarters. Downstairs there is a charming arrangement of Victorian and Chinese art treasures enhanced by Chinese rugs in rich shades of blue and yellow and imposing ancient Chinese portraits. The dining room, with ink-biack walls and Chinese red lacquer table quite took our breath away. Ana upstairs the Victorian influ ence predominates in the huge beds of San Domingo mahogany, tufted bedspreads and walls of festooned paper in dark blue and peach. However, upstairs as well as the downstairs of this attrac tive home of Admiral and Mrs. Pettengill, there is a harmonious blend of perfect taste and we say without hesitation there is not one piece of furniture or colored hanging that disturbs the eye. J * * ♦ « YESTERDAY afternoon Mr. and Mrs. George Howe gave a cocktail party in their little house in Georgetown. The drawing room which is done entirely in shades of clear blue and yellow, for which Mrs. Howe mixed the paints, is furnished with a charming com bination of French and Victorian antiques.
