for the. final snowing of season at
♦ he Museum of Modern Art Gallery
of Washington. The flower-bedecked
hats of the ladies who viewed the
showing vied with the flowers on the
canvases and all conversations were
hinged on flowers yesierdav, since the
crowd that filled the gallery had come
directly either from a visit to the

—— - Reth Maine- —_—
gATURDAY afternoon found us paying our respects to t.he Coun
selor of the Legation of Switzerland and Mme. Freer, who enter
tained in honor of the departing Attache and Mme. Ernest Schlat
ter The Freers’ house has a delightful cosmopolitan interior and
its chalk-white walls throw into relief the large examples of Danish
furniture as well as the gay chintz-covered sofas and chairs The
enormous size of the lamp shades of ecru silk left us feeling as
diminutive as Alice in Wonderland tiptoeing to see over the toad
stool. Incidentally, the Freers have bought their home and obvi
ously do not agree with Representative Sol Bloom, who, though he
has lived in Washington many years, has never succumbed to buy
lng a home, for, he says. “No sooner does one of my colleagues buv a
house in Washington than the inconstant tides of politics turn.*’
The Swiss Minister and Mme. Peter were among the first
arrivals, as was the Counselor of the German Embassy and
Fran Thomsen. Mme. Schlatter de Roll stood with Fru'Wen
nerberg of the Swedish Legation, the latter accompanied by
her sister. Miss Schalbcrg. while M. Wennerberg. haring dis
covered some delectable cherry brandy, was drinking a toast
to our cherry blossoms. Others present were the Charles
Lucets and the young De Gramonts of the French Embassy
the Rumanian Charge. d'Affaircs and Mme. Babes with Eman
uel Dimitriu, Anthony de Balasy. M. and Mme. Kabelar. of the
Chechoslovakian Legation, M. and Mme, Molekamp and Air.

YESTERDAY found many occupied with outdoor activities. Rome
went to see the cherry blossoms, others to the McCormick
Goodharts , where an oyster roast was in progress, while the Thom
sens of the German Embassy went on a picnic and Ricardo Siri
took in the Zoo in his own words, “to give the animals something
to look at. With Siri were the other two members of the Argen
tine trio. Mariano Zuberbuhler and Miguel Quirno, affectionately
known as the three disgraces.
Later in the afternoon, as eventide iras fatliva. a number
of us repaired to the bachelor abode of Bob Knmclton for
cocktails in honor—again—of the Schlatters. Bob did the
honors royally, and a congenial group sat on the sofas and
made themselves comfortable on the deep-piled Chinese rugs.
Among those present were Rebeca Trucco. looking petitelv
demure in a black-and-white print with a white Dutch cap:
Huneeuses. Olga Patterson, as usual in dead black:
Mannix Walker, Philip Bonsai. Victor Rutro, sitting with the always
vivacious Fina Tudela; Caroline Cecil and Anne Child with Manuel
Trucco and Tommy Adams, while a new' face turned out to hp an
attractive cousin of Diana Rowland from Greenwich-Valle Ewing
