All of Famed Nehru Family to Be Here;
A New Name for Washington Revealed
The parade of foreign peVson
alities, potentates, and premiers to
this, our own city and world capi
tal, will pep up interest this fall.
Following the forthcoming visit
of British officials, Sir Stafford
Cripps and Ernest Bevin—India's
Premier, Jawaharlal Nehru, will
come to Washington to talk about
the Pacific Union and finances, of
course. He will arrive here on the
11th of October accompanied,
among others, by his daughter and
only child, Mrs. Indira Gandhi.
If he remains over here as long
as two weeks, the whole able Nehru
family will be in this country at
the same time.
The great Indian leader has only
two sisters, Mme. Pandit, the In
dian Ambassador here, and Mrs.
Raja Hutheesing, the former
Krishna Nelyu, who is known to
* her friends by the nickname,
Betti. She and their two young
sons are coming to America in
October. They will leave India on
the 7th to fly to London where
they will take their boys on a
whirlwind tour of historic points
before embarking on the 15th for
New York. They are due to land
there the 19th when there will be
more sightseeing before coming
down to Washington.
Once in the Capital the two
sons will probably be ensconced
in the embassy with their fond
Ambassadorial aunt, and may
enter a school here, but Betti,
author and lecturer will 'whip
out at once through the country
on a speaking tour.
When last in Washington in
the spring of 1947 Betti had al
ready written, “With No Regrets.”
Her autobiography, it tells the
story of her famous family, the
influence of Mahatma Gandhi on
it, her travels abroad, etc. Her
husband, Raja, who is associated
with a newspaper in Bombay, will
Join his wife here later.
A society writer, or, for that
matter, anybody addicted to jour
nalism in this vicinity, has time
and again scratched the bottom
of the barrel for a synonym for
“Washington.” The most fre
quently used alternative is “the

one can always fall back on "the

A brand new name for this lo
cality has just been donated by
New York. I was taking leave of
the Big City last week by way of
La Guardia Airport and I walked
that extra mile to the place where
you check your baggage. “Where
to?” asked the handsome young
man in a blue uniform. “Wash
ington," was my quick retort.
Then with a friendly abandon he
turned to his assistant and called,
“One — to Truman’s Paradise!”
That’s one synonym I hadn't
And the remark that best de

came from a popular divorcee here
the other day. Somebody asked
the lady in question if .she were
going to a certain party that in
volved some inconvenience in get
ting to. “Oh my, yes.” she replied,
revealing the typical Washington
outlook, “I wouldn’t miss a party
if I could help it.”
Then she added, “The epitaph
on my tombstone will read: ‘God
invited her and she could go!’”

A business man’s secretary
writes: “What I want to know is
whether I should excuse myself
every time I have to interrupt my
employer’s conversation with a
visitor? It seems abrupt and ill
mannered to go in and stand
there wtihout saying anything: on
the other hand, perhaps it may
seem over-polite to some people If
such interruptions are generally
accepted as part of the duties of a

When it is necessary to interrupt
him with an important message,
you just stand within a short dis
tance of him and wait until he
turns his attention to you. You
then give him the message. Of

Orphan's Wedding Invitations
Dear Mrs. Post: Should my
grandfather send out my wedding
invitations, or one of my four
brothers—all unmarried? My par
ents are not living.
Answer: Your grandfather
would be the proper person unless
he has taken no especial interest
in you, and one of your brothers
has. In this case, you may choose
this particular one.
Keep Bridal Bouquet
Dear Mrs. Post: If the bride
prefers to keep her bridal bouquet,
does custom still make it neces
sary Tor her to throw it to her
bridesmaids when she leaves the
reception to dress?
Answer: The custom of throw
ing her bouquet is so long estab
lished that I think it would be
very strange not tc have her
throw it to the bridesmaids.
