Even a week end away from the Capital, although spent in another city just as warm, gives one the illusion of being "away from the heat” for a while. There is Senator Walsh of Massachusetts, who spent a delightful week end with Mr. Bernard Doyle of Boston aboard the latter’s yacht, Galszy. The boat remained off Montauk, Long Island, most of the time, and cooling breezes floated over the water to enhance the beauty of the scene. Mrs. Frederick T. Merrill, jr., has joined her mother, Mrs. William Claiborne HaU, at her home in East Hampton, Long Island. Mrs. entertained at a small buffet supper last evening, at her home, in honor of Miss Constance Middleton Roberts and Mr. Robert Louis Hoguet, jr, who will be married Saturday.
