Of Gay Celebration
M. Hussein Mahmoud Radi *

At Home Yesterday.
IN CELEBRATION of the birthday
anniversary and recent marriage
of young King Farouk I of Egypt,
the doors of the Egyptian Lega
tion on Massachusetts avenue were
thrown wide yesterday afternoon.
Strains of music, gay and tantaliz
ing, could be heard as the car drew
up at the door and, peering to the
right upon entering, it was discovered
that dancing was going on in the ball
room on the ground floor. There Sid
ney's violin was In full swing in a
room decorated with all manner of
brass ornaments from the land of the
Pharoahs. The lighting, to Americans,
was unique. Great brass lamps con
taining vari-colored lights were
placed in the corners of the room.
After climbing the wide stairway to
the second floor the guests were
greeted by small, but none the less
gracious and hospitable, M. Hussein

The Embassy, crowded with guests
from all the social circles of Wash
ington, presented a gay and festive
sight. There Is no female contingent
in the Legation staff, thus exploding
all theories that every party and
house needs a woman's touch, for
the reception was carried out in per
fect fashion and nothing was missing
to make it successful in every respect.
The dining room boasted a table
laden with delicacies. In another
room champagne was served and
flowed freely as the guests raised
their glasses and toasted the "man
of the day,” King Farouk.
To mention but a very few of the
guests, Mrs. Owen J. Roberts, wife
of the Supreme Court Justice, accom
panied by her daughter, Miss Eliza
beth Roberts, was present; also, the
Postmaster General, Mr. James A.
Farley; Mrs. Daniel C. Roper, wife
of the Secretary of CX>mmerre; the
wife of the Spanish Ambassador,
Senora de los Rios; the Minister of
the Union of South Africa and Mrs.

cape; the Minister of Czechoslovakia

Dominican Republic and Senora de
Pastoriza, Mme. de Bianchi, wife of
the Minister of Portugal, and her
daughter. Mile. Sibilla Skidclsky;
Baroness von Below, Mrs. Russell

The German Embassy was repre

Thomsen, while from the Italian staff
came the Naval Attache, the Marquis
of Sant’Orsola; from the Argentine
Embassy, the Naval Attache and
Senora de Sueyro—but to enumerate
all the guests would be very much
like adding the greater part of the

Given Yesterday Afternoon.
gUT the gathering at the Egyptian
Legation was not the only func
tion of the day. Showing the stamina
of the residents of this great city,
rain or shine, through snow and
sleet, there were any number of
persons who managed to take in three
important late afternoon parties in
one day. When one realizes that
there also were a number of dinner
parties on the calendar last night, it
Just goes to show that Washington
is a gay city in which to live and,
assuredly, it has the monopoly on late
afternoon entertaining.
The Chinese Ambassador, Dr. Chen

Yoeh E. Wang, were hosts at the Em

blue brocaded crepe native costume.
Alternating at the tea tea table were

'J'HE social calendar yesterday was more than usually crowded
with festivities of various kinds, and the younger set very
definitely shared in the limelight.
It all started around 5 o’clock, when Mimi Scott gave a
delightful cocktail party in honor of Piers Edgcumbe, a hand
some British visitor in Washington.
About 30 people were asked to meet the guest of honor. Mimi,
in a smart red gown, looked perfectly lovely. The daughter of
Mrs. Russell Sard, the former Rebekah Wilmer, most beautiful
debutante of her year and still one of the loveliest women in Wash
ington, Mimi is capable of carrying on the family reputation for
charm and good looks.
Later Frances Andrews entertained a group of 24 young
people at dinner before the Friday Supper Club in honor of
her house guest, Jane Watson, and the piece de resistance
was a first course of "barbecued oysters,” served hot, with
large wooden bowls placed on the table into which the guests
fired their oyster shells with unerring aim.
Last night there was dancing at the Sulgrave Club, with the
Friday Supper Club in progress, and the Chilean Embassy, on
Massachusetts avenue, was gay as His Excellency the Ambassador
entertained a group of 150 young people at a dance in honor of
his daughter Graciela and her fiance, Fernando Illanes. Every
one went first to the Supper Club and then on to the Embassy,
where the enticing strains of swing and still more swing lasted
until the wee small hours, with the Cassini brothers leading the
numbers, assisted by the Ambassador’s young son, “Truckin’’
Trucco. Rafael Fuentes of the Mexican Embassy astonished all
by being able to keep pace .in the Cassinis’ famous Russian jig,
while Hector Leguizamon, “Bula-Bula” Zuberbuhler and Ricardo
Siri shook wicked fingers with finesse!

retary of Labor, a great favorite here last year, was down
from New York, accompanied by a striking friend. Emily
