Entered in the Post Office in Nome as 2nd Class Matter MEMBER OF ASSOCIATED PRESS ON WITH THE DANCE Several million Americans will join with the President and his family in a happy celebration of his fifty-sixth birthday on Janu ary 30. At the same time they will give perhaps as much as a million dollars toward the alle viation of suffering and the at tack of science on infantile par alysis. The chairman of the na tional committee for the Presi dent’s Birthday Ball for the four th time, estimates that no fewer than five thousand parties will be given throughout the nation. Alaskans will keep step with others of the nation. Sourdoughs and Cheechaknes in the chief Northland centers will do their part—making merry simultaneo usly with Americans in Hawaii, Puerto Rico and other insular possessions. Americans in tail coats, Sunday suits, wind-breakers, pierrot cos tumes, sweaters and overalls: beardless boys, men in the prime of life, war veterans, bewhisker ed granddads, the high school bas ketball team; Fifth Avenue soph isticate and mid-western farm hands alike, wrill twirl the ladies in a waltz, entrance them with a rhumba or the big apple or stomp their way elegantly through a Virginia reel. American women, dowagers, sub debs, school teachers, the girls from the five and ten cent store where you meet the million dol lar princesses, the Junior Leag uers, artists' models, the ladies of the Browning club and the girls from across the railway tracks, they will be "among those pres ent” at the President’s Parties. Whatever their costumes whether Chanel’s d.rnier cri or a "take me home for $10.95", they will be in themselves sufficient reason for a celebration. The President’s Birthday Ball this January, as in past years, will be an American gesture, na tional in scope, altruistic in pur pose and gay with the spirit of a young and generous people.
