Official Capital Season Nears End
Varied Plans for Summer In Supreme Court Circle By Katharine M. Brooks •The very warm days of last week would, in normal times, have sent the families of many officials to the country, nearby seashore or further north to remain until fall. The war, however, has closed many seashore resorts to mere civilians, and travel is not so easy or so comfortable, so many of these families will remain at home or at best find some retreat in the nearby country. The Supreme Court circle—following the traditions of the Court—is a law unto itself and as soon as the Court calendar is cleared most of its members will start off for several months' rest and relaxation. The Chief Justice and Mrs. Harlan Fiske Stone have only tentative plans but hope to be off to cooler climes by the end of June and do not expect to return unui tne latter part of September in time for the convening of the Court the first Monday in October. Associate Justice Owen J. Rob erts was joined Saturday by Mrs. Roberts who spent the week at their farm in Pennsylvania getting the house in order for the summer. They plan to close their Washington home by the end of next week, and settle on the farm for the summer. Associate Justice and Mrs. Hugo L. Black will leave the latter part jf June for Miami Beach, where they will visit their son, Lt. Sterling Black, who is stationed there with the Army Air Forces. They also will visit their other son, Hugo L. Black, jr., who is attending Officer Candidate School at Port Ben ning, Ga. Mr. Justice and Mrs. Black will take with them their young daughter Josephine, who is a junior at St. Agnes School, and will spend a good part of the summer at Miami Beach. Associate Justice and Mrs. Wil liam O. Douglas with their two chil dren Mildred and William O., jr., will leave late next month for their cabin in Oregon, wdiere they spend the summer in the out of doors and benefit from the complete change of climate and scene. Hickory Hill, the charming old place in McLean, Va„ Which As sociate Justice and Mrs. Robert H. Jackson purchased a year or so back, is a delightful spot even in the hottest weather and except for one or two brief visits northward Mr. Justice and Mrs. Jackson stay home most of the summer. The newest member of the court, Associate Justice Wiley Rutledge with Mrs. Rutledge are planning their trek to Colorado within a very few weeks. Justice and Mrs. Rutledge will be accompanied West by their son, Mr. Neal Rutledge and their younger daughter. Miss Jean Ann Rutledge. They will join the other daughter, Miss Mary Lou Rutledge, when she completes this year’s course at the University of Colorado, and she will go with them to their ranch. A ttend Graduation Mr. and Mrs. James J. Brown will leave tomorrow for Duke Uni versity where they will attend the graduation of their daughter. Miss Mary Anne Brown. Miss Brown, who during her senior year, has been president of the Delta Gamma International sorority, will accom pany her parents home for the summer vacation.

Baskets of white flowers against a background of palms and lighted candles formed the setting in Ham line Methodist Church for the wed ding yesterday afternoon of Miss Doris Marie Powell and Mr. Ruby Albert Schultz, which took plaee at 4 o’clock. The Rev. Dr. Harry Wilson Bur gan officiated at the ceremony and the bride, who is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond H.

Her dress of ivory satin was worn with a. veil of illusion held by a Juliet cap and she carried a prayer book overlaid with orchids and lilies of the valley. A gold cross necklace, the gift of the bridegroom, was worn for ornamentation. Miss Elizabeth Anne Powell of Richmond, Ind., sister of the bride, was the maid of honor and was cos tumed in aqua lace with rose trim. Her flowers were an old-fashipned bouquet of spring blossoms. Mr. Frank C. Heiss was best man for the bridegroom, who is the son of Mrs. G. B. Benton of Argenta, 111. Mr. Eric Peterson and Mr. John Jackson were the ushers. After the reception, which was held in the social room of the church, Mr. and Mrs. Schultz left for a wedding trip and on their re turn will be at home at 3829 Veasey street.

Mnatessasss&gsesssftSassssfifiKssaMi By the Way— __BETH BLAINE_ Even before Pearl Harbor Mrs. Sherry Stein had begun her vol unteer war work, and she has kept it up faithfully and steadily ever since. Her first job, she told us, was in response to a call for volunteers to serve as recep tionists which the OCD sent out. Mrs. Stein answered and was soon put to work in the office of Mrs. William Galvin (as a re ceptionist) in the District Build ing. This office did a splendid job in making surveys and get ting information in preparation for blackouts and emergency dis asters, and Mrs. Stein proved herself a very able worker. When Mrs. Galvin got the idea of having a super informa tion service it was Mrs. Stein who helped her plan the first information courses and who was herself a member of that first class. Now, as you probably know, this service is used ex tensively throughout the city for the benefit of service men and women. It began at Service Club Number One and Mrs. Stein was one of the first women to work there—as she still does. Then the service was put in at the USO Lounge at Union Sta tion and at the Pepsi-Cola Can teen and again Mrs. Stein was one of the first to serve. It was Mrs. Stein, too, whose sugges tion, placed in the “suggestion box” at the Stage Door Canteen, was responsible for the Can teen's having an information service there. “Do you still work at all these jobs?” we asked Mrs. Stein. And in reply she gave us her daily schedule for last week, which is a typical one. Monday night at Service Club Number One, Tues day at the Pepsi-Cola Canteen, Wednesday she attended a lunch eon and meeting_of executives of the Information Group, Thurs day she worked at the Food Bar at the Stage Door Canteen (where she has also been since it opened), Friday, the USO Lounge at Union Station, and Saturday she always keeps for household duties. Judging from the spick and-span beautifully kept apart ment where the Steins live she is an excellent housekeeper. Fresh crisp summer slip covers were already on all the chairs and sofas, cool straw rugs covered the well-polished floors, and you got the feeling just by looking at trim, well-groomed Mrs. Stein that everything about her would always be in apple-pie order. Tne Steins’ have one son, in the Army Air Corps, who at the age of 23 has passed his 50-mis sion mark and has been awarded the Air Medal and the Dis tinguished Flying Cross. “One of the reasons I like doing things for these boys is because I have one of my own,” said his mother. “You can’t imagine what a kick I get out of meeting the same boys at the different canteens where I work. After a couple of times I feel as though I d known them all my life.” Probably no compliment ever pleased Mrs. Stein more than when a young serviceman who tried to help her with some lug gage that ^ie was checking at the USO Lounge on being told it would help her waist line, replied “Your waist line is O. K. Mom, you just let me handle the lug gage.” Mrs. Stein is pretty much O. K., too, the service boys think. Anniversary Celebrated Mr. and Mrs. Gallatin McMullen Marsh celebrated their 60th wed ding anniversary Friday at the home of their son and daughter in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Vernon H. Marsh, in Alexandria. Mrs. Marsh is the former Miss Willie Anne Leake, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Leake of Albemarle County.
