anchored at the turn of the 2’2-mile course and trim yachts were lined
up off Roaches Run.
The President arrived on the Dol-Lar. a Navy cabin cruiser, with a
•tag party of about 12 on board. Through binoculars, the President was,
easily recognized, dressed in blue suit and spic-and-span white cap.
At 4 o'clock the queen of the regatta, pretty Miss Drucie Snyder, ac
companied by her court, joined the President to view the final heat of the
cup race. Miss Snyder's court included Miss Jocelyn Freer. Miss Jane
Tunstall Lingo. Miss Mary Calvert, Miss Marion Cummings and the two
daughters of the Chilean Ambassador, Miss Elena Mora and Miss
Miss Great Lakes, a very showy littie boat which kicked up a spray
SO to 40 feet high, was winner of the 14-karat gold cup. Guy Lombardo

After the races the small craft dis
appeared from the scene first. The
larger boats lingered like people at
a concert hoping for an encore, but
gradually started stringing off for
home ports and the harbor was left
empty, with only the steady hum of
airplanes overhead to disturb the
quiet of the blue Potomac.

Syrian Women of District Fete
Wife of President of Lebanon
Ry Ruth Dean
Mme. Bechara K. el-Khoury, the
wife of the president of the Repub
lic of Lebanon, during her short stay
in the Nation's Capital, has accom
plished much as an ambassador of
good will between her country and
the United States.
As a climax to her stay, special
tribute was paid to her Saturday at
a luncheon given in her honor at
jthe Mayflower Hotel by the Ladies
I Auxiliary of the Svrian-American
It was a big day too for this group
of women of Arabic origin, many of
whom are the wives of diplomatic
representatives from the Middle
East. With toast and speech they
feted the "first lady” of Lebanon.
The luncheon table, arranged like
a horseshoe, was gaily decked in
the white, red and green national
colors of Lebanon, carried out in
artistically arranged flower center
piece and candle motifs.
Mme. el-Khoury was to have ad
dressed the club, but due to a throat
ailment regretted very much that
she could not respond to the tribute
paid to her by members of the club.
Speaking for her, Mrs. Charles
Malik, wife of the Minister of Leba
non, told members how “greatly im
pressed” Mme. el-Khoury was with
Americans of Arabic-speaking origin,
adding that in her opinion, Mme. el
Khoury ‘‘in her quiet unassuming
way, is a great leader,” and an in
spiration for Syrian-A mg r i c a n
women leaders here.
Speaking for members of the club,
Mrs. Joseph S. Sado, wife of the
president of the Syrian-American
Club, said in saluting Mme. el
Khoury, “It is heartening to learn
of the marked changes In the women
of the Arab East and of how she is
forging ahead with such rapid pro
gress from her niedieval status to
20th Century democracy; equally
noteworthy is that spearheading
such renaissance is a dynamic force
exemplied by our guest of honor.”
Mrs. Sado then told the group
of Mme. el-Khoury's pioneer work
in shaping the social, civic and po
litical life of Lebanon, after it be
came a republic three years ago.
'particularly during the time of her
husband's imprisonment by the
French government two years ago,
when she organized a woman's party
to combat foreign propaganda.
Mme. el-Khoury has long been
interested in the social betterment
of her people, Mrs. Sado added. In
reaching the under-privileged, she
has personally toured native vil
lages, giving aid and comfort to
the needy "fallaheen” (farmers).
Mme. el-Khoury has long been
interested in the Lebanon National
Red Cross, Mrs. Sado said, and was
instrumental in founding the* Red
Cross club there. Under her leader
ship the women of Lebanon have
become interested in the establish
ment of women's clubs throughout
the country, Mrs. Sado added.
With Mrs. Malik, other repre
sentatives of the Arab countries
among the luncheon guests in
cluded: Mrs. Costi Zurayk, wife of
the Charges d’Affaires of the Syrian
Legation; Miss Angela Jurdak, at
tache of the Lebanon Legation and
Mrs. Henry Bassoul, wife of the
commercial attache of the Lebanon

State Department officials, Mrs.
Henry S. Villard, Mrs. Joseph C.
Satterthwgite and Mrs. Evan M.
Wilson. Alsy present were Mrs.

Bureau of the Department of Labor
