Cheers Those Forced
To Stay in Capital
Senator Walsh Guest Aboard
Yacht of Mr. Bernard Doyle;
Mrs. Merrill Joins Mother
Those of us who of necessity must remain in Washington during the
worst heat blasts of the summer find it pleasant to hear of others who
are taking delightful week-end cruises or are disporting themselves at
some cool summer resort. 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,

Mrs. Frederick T. Merrill, jr., has joined her mother, Mrs. William
Claiborne HaU, at her home in East Hampton, Long Island. Mrs.

of Miss Constance Middleton Roberts and Mr. Robert Louis Hoguet, jr,
who will be married Saturday.
Mrs. Goodhart Aids

Mrs. F. Hamilton McCormick Goodhart, although summering at
delightful Bar Harbor, is not spending all her time in play. She is taking
an active part in the work being done by the Bar Harbor branch of the
American Friends of France. A shop has been opened by the organiza
tion and Mrs. McCormick Goodhart, with many other summer residents
of Bar Harbor, is one of the volunteers in charge of the work of the shop.
Attending the World s Fair over
the week end was the Czecho-Slovak
Minister, Col. Vladimar S. Hurban,
who took part in the speeches made
at the Court of Peace yesterday.
Dr. Jan Masaryk, Foreign Minister
of the government in exile, also
spoke. Others in New York over
the week end were the Charge
d'Affaires of Luxembourg and Mme.
Le Gallais and the Naval Attache
of the Argentine Embassy and
Senora de Godoy. Capt. Pierre
Benech, the Naval Attache of the
French Embassy, has returned to
Washington following a stay at the
Waldorf-Astoria, and the former
United States Attorney General, Mr.
Homer S. Cummings, will arrive
there today aboard the America.

Newport, according to our correspondent there, is gayer than ever
this summer, despite a rather late start socially due to the cold, rainy
One of the highlights of the season is Lady Mendl's visit. This
charming and altogether remarkable lady has been the guest of the
Harold Brooks, and has been the center of attention wherever she ap
peared—even without standing on her head! She was among the guests at
the dinner Mr. and Mrs. Snowden Fahnestock gave last Saturday when
Dorothy Norman and Livingston Sullivan were their week-end guests.
It was Dorothy Norman who so entranced Washington with her charm and
her marvelous piano playing last winter when she visited Bee and Snowden
here—and whose records—of her own composition—are such a tremendous
success, ijl this particular party of the Fahnestocks in Newport both
Mrs. Norman and James Beck played tfcie piano after dinner—which per
haps in a measure explains its being such fun.
In addition to the Fahnestock*—who since their marriage have
spent every summer in Snowden's lovely French furnished house at
Newport—there are many other Washingtonians there. The C.
Mathews Dicks have their own house, which is as perfectly run
and actractively arranged as their Massachusetts avenue housa
