the buffet table and bars were laid
in the Carlton room.
At the same time Mr. .nd Mrs.
Lawrence Lesser were entertain
ing in the banquet room honoring
the new Brazilian Minister, Mr.
Guillermo Araujo anc Mme.
Araujo. Both rooms were com
fortably air-cond: oned and
although one or two of those in
vited went first to the wrong
party, many were included n both
guest lists.
Mrs. Miller wore a cool sheer
print w'ith a wide brimmed very
becoming hat as she stood beside
the Assistant Secretary to greet
their guests. Next in line was
Senora de Restrepo-Jaranullo
who wore an attractive frock, a
ballerino length like that of Mrs.
Miller, and a matching hat.
A tall cluster of flowers in the
colors of Colombia, red, blue and
yellow, centered the buffet table
with lower mounds of blossoms in
the red. white and blue of the
United States were at each end.
The Ambassador and Senora
de Restrepo-Jaramillo are no
strangers in Washington and al
ready have many friends here
■where the Ambassador has come
on more than one mission. He
also serves as Ambassador to the
Organization of American States
and Mr. and Mrs. Miller invited
his colleagues there as well as the
heads of diplomatic missions of
other Latin American republics to
welcome the newcomer in their
ranks. The Bolivian Ambassador,
Senor Don Ricardo Martinez
Vargas, w;as among the callers
last evening but Senora de Marti
nez Vargas is spending the mid
summer in Maine w^here he ex
pects to join her for a brief vaca
tion this month.
Senora de Nieto del Rio, who
accompanied her husband, the
Chilean Ambassador, w!as among
the diplomatic hostesses in the
company. Senora de Penaherrera,
who doesn't mind the heat and
prefers to stay with her husband,

Engaged Couples
Honored ot Parties
Miss Claire Snow and Mr. Barry
Freer, who will be married this
afternoon, and Miss Margaret
Woodhouse and Mr. John Becker,
who wii: be married Saturday,
were the cause for two celebra
tions among the younger set yes
Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Freer
entertained at dinner in their
home in honor of Miss Snow and
their sou last evening. And Mr.
and Mrs Ross A. de Matteo gave
a cocktail party in their apart
ment at the Kenmore for Miss
Woodhouse and her fiance.
Both couples have been enter
tained widely since their engage
ments were announced.
A reader says: “My mother in
sisted that I couldn’t give my sis
ter a shower that it wasn’t proper
except tor a friend of hers. So I
asked one of her friends to give
it at her house and send the in
vitations, but I paid for the party.
I didn’t want my sister not to
have such a party and no one
seemed tc suggest one. I’m sure
the friend has let it be known how
it happened, so what difference
did it make. Yet mother wouldn’t
allow it any other way.”
Your situation is so understand
able I can’t imagine any one criti
cizing it. As a matter of fact, your
friend would show her own social
ignorance if she talked about it.
NewsDQDer Weddina
Dear Mrs. Post: When sending
the facts for an announcement of
my daughter’s wedding in the

surance as to how much of it will

wedding dress and veil with her
and we also wanted to know il
she may wear them on this occa
Answer: Her dress, yes, but nol
her veil The other details are
entirely proper.
Engagement Ring Not Necessary
Dear Mrs. Post: Don’t you think
everyone feels it’s necessary foi
a girl to have an engagement ring
in order to become engaged? Here
they speak of getting the ring as
they would the engagement itself
For instance, “Are you getting
your ring so we can give you a
Answer: Very definitely an en
gagement ring is not a necessity
as is a wedding ring. It is usual
to get a ring, but there are many
occasions when a man cannot af
ford it and the engagement is cer
tainly valid without it. ^

Star-Studded Reception Given by Gen. and Mrs. Collins
At Fort McNair in Honor of Gen. and Mrs. Wade Haislip
By Betty Beale
The traditional dash and pre
cision of the military added snap
and elegance to the reception Army
Chief of Staff and Mrs. J. Lawton
Collins gave yesterday for the re
tiring Vice Chief and Mrs. Wade
Hampton Haislip.
Prom the firing of the 17-ftun
salute on the dot of 6 o’clock that
marked the beginning of the re
tirement parade, to the orderly
ease with which the receiving line
was later ushered into Gen. and
Mrs. Collins’ quarters, the func
tion proceeded with the punc
tuality and smoothness character
istic of the uniformed services. ’
The retirement parade on the
Port McNair parade grounds was
the second one to be given for a
general within the memory of
most of the generals present. The
first was the one that honored
Gen. Jacob L. Devers upon his
retirement a few years back, and
| even that was not as imposing
as yesterday’s affair, when one
of the most popular Army men in
Washington gave his last salute
to the colors while in active serv
Gen. Collins and Gen. Haislip
stood at attention at the front of
the reviewing stand while the
band played the “Star-Spangled
Banner” and “To the General”.
Soldiers of the Third Infantry
Regiment then marched before
them and a formation of jets flew
across the clear sky overhead. Be
hind them on the stand were
seated cabinet officials and other
ranking guests while, on either
side of the stand were rows of
chairs to accommodate the rest of
the 300 or more invited to the re
ception. Standing about on the
grass watching the proceedings
and greeting friends were Sena
ator Leverett Saltonstall, Brazilian
Ambassador Mauricio Nabuco, Lt.
Gen. and Mrs. Thomas B. Larkin,
Mrs. Thomas B. Larkin, Mrs. John
L. Dempsey with Mrs. A. Mitchell
Palmer and Lady Lewis with her
son and daughter-in-law, the Lud
low Kings.
At the end of the parade, which
went off like clockwork in about
20 minutes, guests had only to
cross the street to enter the aff -
cooled drawing room of the Col
lins’ Fort McNair residence. A
goodly number skipped the long
receiving line until it had thinned
out later (an accepted Washing
ton trick) and went straight into
the shaded garden, where every
one gathered.
Stars En Route
Stars were falling on Fort Mc
Nair yesterday. Nearly every high
ranking general present who saw
tw'o stars on his shoulder stand
ing there on the banks of the Po
tomac will take another look to
day and find three. The retirement
of Gen. Haislip means one up
along the line.

the Capital.
Congratulations were conse
quently very much in order as the
party moved through the receiving
line. Standing in front of a bou
quet of gorgeous Egyptian lotus
blossoms, Mrs. Collins received in
a short black organza dress with
a stole, Mrs. Haislip in white linen
with an embroidered navy blue
linen jacket. Both had white or
chid corsages. Comely Nancy Col
