Residential Washington Predominates
Miss Leahy Bows to Society;
Miss Gill Presented at Dance
By Betty Beale
Yesterday was a dazzling day for debutantes and for Washington
society that has been society for at least three generations.
Lovely looking dark-haired Louise Harrington Leahy, daughter
of Navy Capt. and Mrs. William H. Leahy and granddaughter of Fleet
Admiral William D. Leahy, made her formal bow in the afternoon, while
last evening Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Nicholas Gill, Jr., presented their
daughter, cute, pretty Juliet Parris Gill, at one of the brilliant balls
of the season.
Residential Washington held complete sway at both parties. Both
debutantes were bom here and are members of families long prominent
In the Capital. The six or seven hundred guests at the gay tea dance
given by her parents for Miss Leahy were drawn from three generations,
friends of her grandparents. Admiral Leahy and Dr. and Mrs. Robert 8.
Beale, friends of her parents and members of the debutante set.
The 400 or more elegantly attired persons who gathered at the Sul
grave v/iuu ***©•*« v
"Judy” Gill at her glamorous debut
dance were nearly all her own con
temporaries. There were a few
young married couples present and
a few friend* of her parents, but
for the most part this was the young
set that has been rushed off Its col
lective feet all during the holidays.

carded later when she went onto
the dance floor, adorning her brown
locks with small white orchids in
stead. Mrs. Gill was gowned in
a handsome dress of beige-gold
satin with straps over the shoulders,
a satin bow trimmed with gold
sequins accenting the decolletage.
Sidney and his orchestra started
playing at 10:30 in the ballroom,
that was gay with varicolored bal
loons and didn’t stop until some
where around 4 o'clock in the morn
inf. This, despite the fact that it
was the night before New Year’s

of course, were the 40 or more pres
ent for the dinner given for Miss
Gill beforehand by her parents.
