Associate Justice Loans House;
Senora de Michels Is Hostess Associate Justice and Mrs. Hugo L. Black have loaned the small house on the grounds of their home at 619 South Lee street in Alexandria to the Red Cross. The Alexandria Red Cross Camp and Hospital Service will use it as a workroom and storage place, and members of that group in this nearby Virginia town are hard at work transforming the quaint little building into a working place instead of living quarters. The house is said to have been built during the Revolutionary period and used as a stable and groom’s quarters. It now has two rooms on the ground Horn: and three upstairs, giving ample room to the enthusiastic workers in this section of the Alexandria Red Cross. The Camp and Hospital Committee is afflliated with the Potomac Camp and Hospital Council and is collecting and distributing articles to De repaired ana usea oy service men In nearby camps as well as In Army and Navy hospitals. Mrs. Ludlow, wife of Lt. Comdr. Ogden Ludlow, is chairman of the committee, and among those serv ing with her are Mrs. Gustave Schwartz, Mrs. Atreus von Schra der and Mrs. Emmett Connely. They have made an appeal for donations of musical instruments, radios, writ ing desks, reading lamps, sheet music, phonograph records and fur niture in good condition. Associate Justice and Mrs. Black purchased their house in Alexandria shortly after the former took his seat on the Supreme Court and they have modernized the house without destroying its Colonial lines and atmosphere. Senor de Michels, wife of the Chilean Ambassador, entertained yesterday at one of the informal teas which she frequently gives at the embassy, having as her guests a small group of the wives of other foreign diplomats stationed in Washington as well as a few Amer ican friends. These small gather ings are a pleasant interlude be tween the larger and more formal entertainments which are an im portant part of the social program of all foreign representatives and their families residing in Washing ton. Senora de Michaels, who is a charming hostess and chatelaine, is rapidly mastering the English lan guage, and many pleasantries are exchanged over the tea cup at these informal soirees. Senorita Cristina Michels, daugh ter of the Ambassador and Senora de Michels, who usually assists her mother when she entertains in formally, will be missed in these gatherings for a few months due to her absence in New York. This young lady, who has many feminine talents, including the ability to fash ion her own gowns in a particularly professional way, as well as design smart little hats, has decided to take up the study of modern arts, and she has left to attend school in the metropolitan city, and will re turn to the Capital only over week ends. Miss Mary C. Oursler and Mrs. David D. Caldwell entertained at luncheon today at the Shoreham in honor of Mrs. Julius Young Tal madge. Among the guests were Mrs. Howard L.

Rt*erv*tions: Ctll ItW Mr. Arthur, NA. 3810 By the Way— _BETH BLAINE__ "What do you think the war has taught us about women?” we asked Mrs. Samuel James Camp bell, treasurer general of the Na tional Society, Daughters of the American Revolution. “I think it has shown very defi nitely,” said Mrs. Campbell, "that women can do anything if they have to—not only the glam orised Jobs, but the simple, plod ding home-front Jobs that are Just as important in their way.” Mrs. Campbell tried to ptove this to the women of the farm community in Illinois, which is really her home, by helping to manage the 3,000 acres of farm land which she and her husband own in Mount Carroll, 111. And very often, she says, this meant driving a tractor herself or a farm truck, and gathering in a bunch of women friends to help her when the labor shortage was bad ly curbing farm activities. Born in California, Mrs. Camp bell is the great-niece of Adlai E. Stevenson, one-time Vice Pres ident of the United States, who signed the act of incorporation of the N. S. of the D. A. R.’s in 1896. She attended the Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles, continued her education at Le MRS. SAMUEL JAMES CAMPBELL. land Stanford, Jr., University, where she was a member of the YWCA Board, president of the Womens Student Council and Student Conference, president of the Women’s Dramatic Society, and where she also won a Phi Beta Kappa key for distinguished scholarship. For over a year now Mrs. Campbell has made her home in Washington and her husband is a lieutenant commander in the Navy, on duty here. The Campbells have a charm ing apartment on Sixteenth ! street which they lease furnished but which has been further em bellished by some lovely antiques which Mrs. Campbell has picked up here. Antiques are one of her hobbies, she says. She loves any thing historical or with a back ground. Another hobby is the Campbells’ own famous stable, known as “Argyll Stable,” which raises hackney ponies and horses.

Comdr. Dana Farnsworth yesterday stressed the need for an attitude of tolerance and understanding toward those re turning with physical and mental injuries. “The wounded will not want sym pathy,” the speaker, who served on a hospital ship in the South west Pacific, told the Twentieth Century Club. “They will want to be taken for granted. Avoid no ticing injuries and don’t appear to be shocked.” The address followed a business session in which the club indorsed the McCarran bill for in elective local government and passed a resolution urging District Commis sioners to “stand firmly against carrying out the menacing recom mendations” of the Gallinger sub committee of the Senate District Committee for dismissals in the Dis trict Health Department. The club also approved a pro posed project to raise funds for an ambulance for the District Red Cross. Mrs. James Jardine and ¥iss Anne Laborn were appointed to head the club's participation in the National Symphony drive. Comdr. Farnsworth, who is on the psychiatric staff at the Naval Hos pital at Bethesda, discussed war neurosis or combat fatigue, declar ing that it may be brought on in a number of ways. He cited loss of sleep, constant tension from sni pers and shelling from surface craft as some of its causqp. ' The victims, the speaker con tinued, often become sensitive to noise, have headaches, crying fits, increased reflexes, bad dreams and illusions of cowardice. Restoring their self-confidence is the first step toward recovery, Dr. Farnsworth said. In describing the operations of a hospital ship, he spoke of “the won derful morale” of the men and of how they lay silently, despite their pain, throughout the nights. Hospitals on occupied islands now 1 have “superb equipment” and ade- 1 quate personnel, he said. With : sulfa drugs, malaria control, blood plasma and rapid transportation of the sick, a soldier's chance of re- i1 covery is 99 out of 100, the doctor continued. ! Mrs. H U'.
