IV'ife of French Ambassador Entertains for Food Donors Bv Betfv Beale There was a party at the French Embassy yesterday afternoon for those persons in Washington who most deserve the gratitude of a starving nation. Mme. Bonnet re ceived from 5 until 7 in the simple but exquisite elegance of the fre quently termed “most beautiful em bassy in Washington.” Her guests represented the various groups in the Capital who have worked on the Food For France project, from the wife of Associate Justice Stan ley Reed and the wife of the Com mandant of the Marine Corps, Mrs. A. A. Vandegrift, on down to a group of boys and girls from Wood row Wilson School, who also packed scores of boxes of food. The wife of the French Ambassa dor, who wore a smart brown and black and white print dress, re ceived her guests in the spacious hall at the entrance to the bright, large, high-ceilinged dining room. Here Mrs. Janos de Bekessy took over, mingling with every one and Introducing future friends of simi lar interests. This attractive blond woman, who yesterday wore a linen suit the color of crushed straw berries and a hat of pink tulle roses, has been the guiding genius (she looks more like a guiding angel) of . the Food for France project. Under her able leadership 14,000 boxes of food have already been shipped to France and the project will carry on until the end of this month. The Beime Lays, an attractive couple who will be leaving Wash ington soon, were there. He is author of “I've Had It,” the ex citing story of his experiences with the French resistance movement, which began when he and his co pilot had to bail out of their bomber over France. Mrs. Lay is a good looking, brunet Virginian with lots of natural charm, who still wonders at the courage of the French who sheltered her husband, knowing it would mean disaster for themselves and their children if discovered. Mrs. Carleton Holdrege was also present and Miss Carolyn Nash in a chapeau of pink roses and a pretty black dress with yoke of black eye let. Pink roses also crowded the brim of Mrs. Augustine Bennet’s Gibson Girl hat, while Mrs. J. Wil liam Fulbright wore a natural straw trimmed in black flowers. Mrs. Ful bright was accompanied by Mrs. Benjamin Laney, the wife 'of the Governor of Arkansas, and Mrs.' W. H. Sadler. Other guests were Mrs. Wade Hampton Haislip, one! of the most agreeable and gracious! women in Washington, and distin guished Mrs. J. M. Holton, head mistress of Holton-Arms School, which has packed and sent to France 250 boxes of food. Pretty Mme. Jean-Claude Winckler and Mile. Janine Brossin de Saint-Didier poured tea.
