Clubs Federation Head Rolls Up Record As a Traveler Mrs. J. L. Blair Buck, whose title as the “most traveled presi dent” of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs can scarcely be challenged, will be heading home soon from Calcutta. One of 26 heads ot national or ganizations—most of them men’s groups—on a globe-girdling tour sponsored by the World Town Hall Seminar, Mrs. Buck will leave the party before it goes into Tokyo, Manila and Honolulu. She visited those capitals last year when she made an extended tour of the Far East. Mrs. Buck expects to return to her home in Richmond the latter part of August and will be at her desk at federation headquarters here early in September. In the fall of 1947, a few months after her election as federation president, Mrs. Buck went to Paris as a delegate to the International Assembly of the Women’s World Fellowship. While abroad she also visited in England and Denmark. Later that year, she went to Cuba for a meeting of the South eastern Council, composed of fed erated clubs in the Southeastern States. (Cuba was chosen for the meeting to foster good will between women of the two countries.) Last year the federation presi dent accepted an invitation from Gen. MacArthur to visit Japan and also went into Korea under the aegis of the American mili tary government. The Korean trip was arranged because of the large organization of Korean women which is affiliated with the gen eral federation. During this trip she also visited in China and Hawaii. With the federation more and more directing its interests toward world friendship, its president was one of those to visit the Nether lands West Indies, Caracas, Vene zuela, and Puerto Rico following the organization’s convention last April at Hollywood Beach, Fla. This party, which had many offi cial fetes given in its honor, also included three Washington women—Mrs. Leslie B. Wright, Mrs. Harvey W. Wiley and Mrs.i Gertrude Parks. Soon after she returned to Washington she was off again— this time with the Town Hall group which left New York June 25. Because the federation has a large membership in Greece, Mrs. Buck left her fellow-travelers when they headed for Ankara to visit in Athens. Rejoining the party on its last day In the Turk ish capital, she went on with them to Tel Aviv and is in Egypt this week. Mrs. Dickinson Here A former federation president, Mrs. Lafell Dickinson of Keeue, N. H„ is staying at headquarters this week.

Ave. and Silver Spring and Shirlington Branch Stores Dorothy Dix | A girl asks me what Is my idea of a perfect lady. Well, my Idea of a perfect lady is a woman who has all the vir tues of her grandmother with the modern improvements of her flapper daughter. She is a woman who strikes the happy medium be tween prunes and prisms and li cense. Nothing shocks her, but she shocks no one herself. She adapts herself to all cir cumstances and is equally at home in a palace or a hovel. In the days of prosperity, she is *iot puffed up by her good for tune, and when adversity comes to her, she is not crushed by it. She never boasts, nor whines. She does not kowtow to the great, nor high-hat the humble. She is always just a little bit more considerate of the feelings and rights of those below her than she is of those above her. She never says things that wound and insult those who are incapa ble, because of their position, of resenting them. She has her own opinions and convictions, but she never thrusts them upon you. She concedes to you the privilege of possessing your own religion and politics and taste in dress and method of bringing up your children. Her good manners are as much a part of her as her skin and she never takes them off at home or saves them for company use. She respects your privacy. No matter how intimate a friend she is, she never comes in the back door, nor pries into your garbage can, nor asks you personal ques tions about your affairs. She never feels it her duty to tell you that somebody saw your husband out having dinner with his secretary, or that the neigh bors are talking about your daugh ter’s not getting home until 8 o’clock. She is punctilious in small mat ters, such as returning books ahd paying little debts and her share of common treats. In dress, she always has on just the right thing. No matter how rich she may be, she is never so loaded down with jewels and gee gaws that she looks like a depart ment-store show window. When she comes to see you, she does not rub her lipstick and rouge off on your best embroid ered towels, nor scar up your mahogany with burns from cig arette stubs. She falls in with your plans for her amusement. She eats what is set before her without com ments on her diet or the calories it contains. She takes trouble to make herself fascinating to your friends, and when the time is set for her departure, she goes. If she is married, she never juarrels with her husband before people, nor does she tell her fam ily and friends of his faults and weaknesses. Whatever her family troubles, she never broadcasts them. In a word, the perfect lady Is a woman who always remember* you and never forgets herself and who handles every situation with a tact and finesse that take off all the rough edges. A perfect lady is a mighty pleas ant woman to deal with. / \ I I ( LITTLE TEA HOUSE \ j jj V HOW SERVIHO E I | ^^Bulfet Luncheon, $1.25| 1 12 TO 2:30 | I TO RtACH' Cron Highieai or Memorial Bridle, tollou Columbia Pike, Shirlei S] Highway and Ridge Road time, left on Arlington Ridge Road 1 block.
