Democratic Gala at the I
National Guard Armory, I
featuring stars of the enter
tainment world: Men, din
ner jackets. In this case,
women will be wise, and
correct, if they wear short,
or ballerina-length gowns. ’
reason being that in the
crush, a long dress is apt
to be stepped on and torn.
Then, too, they are very
cumbersome when sitting in
closely placed theater seats.
January 29 For the oath
taking ceremonies at the
Capitol, those officials who
will appear on the platform
' (such as Governors of States
and other top-ranking offi
cials) should wear formal
day dress—the tutoway and
silk topper hat. Their wives,
daytime gowns and hats. The
general spectator will nat
urally wear business suits
and daytime clothes (plus
heavy overcoats!).
The Inaugural Balls: The
women can really “let go”
here! The most formal, long
ball gowns, worn with above
elbow-length gloves and
exotic hairdoes, are appro
priate for this great occasion.
Full dress (white tie and
tails) are the best attire for
the gentlemen. However,
dinner jackets are permis
sible and short evening
gowns may be worn. But, if
you cam really “dress up” for
this great celebration! You
won’t regret it if you do!

Bay State Blues
The Massachusetts State
Society elected not to hold a
party during inaugural week.
The group’s president said a
party would put the organ
ization in a hole financially.
“We tried teaming up with
Texas,” President Harold
Pini said, “but their recep
tion became so tremendous
we had to back out.”
Connecticut’s local State
society plans an all-out gala,
however, from V to 7 pm.
Friday, prior to the Inaugural
Ball, in the Hotel Statler
Hilton.
Mrs. William R. Connole,
whose husband is the former
Federal Power commissioner,
is president of the organiza
tion. She expects a tremen
dous turnout honoring the
State’s appointees in the
Kennedy administration.
They Include HEW Secre
tary-designate Ribicoff, Un

nate Chester Bowles, Assist
ant Secretory of State Roger
Jones and the new Demo
cratic National Committee
