iety TurnsA Its Interest To Political Arena ViCRYBODY's talking politics or playing politice-or both. In Washingtoa me this stage of thb game it's mostly taken out in talk. It's downright curious how Ave can be so much out of things during a campaign. But every once in a while something happens like Gover nor Cox's visit to the President to bring out the fact that this is still the Capital of the Nation. Of course, the spotlight centesed on the White House while the Demo cratic nominee for President and Vice President were closeted with President Wilson. And wouldn't it have been interesting to "listen in" while Governor Cox-to help "make the world safe for the Democratic party," as the old darky put it-was agreeing to sponsor the league of na tions. It might even have been 4lluminating to attend the luncheon which followed the conference. This was heralded in some of the papers as a "stag party," but Mrs. Wilson was present in accordance with the custom which she establish ed shortly after her marriage of "sitting in" whenever the President gives a luncneon or a dinner-and of what notable assemblages has she been a member since the war first began bringing the world to Wash ington! This time, as frequently be fore, she was the only lady in the company. The guests? Why. Gov ernor Cox, Mr. Roosevelt, Senator Carter Glass, Mr. Tumulty, Secretary to the President. and Rear Admiral Grayson. Not many, to be sure, but probably the largest party which has been entertained at the White House since the President's illness. EXCITEMENT AGREED WITH PRESIDENT. The excitement of an important po litical conference seemed to agree with Mr. Wilson, for no sooner had the conferees departed than he was ofN for a long motor ride into the country, with Mrs. Wilson and her brother John Randolph Dolling, as his companions. He has been driv ing pretty nearly every day during the last week and it would not be surprising if any day now the White House household would pack its week-end bags and board the May flower for a brief cruise down the Potomac-a form of holiday which his always agreed with the President, and in which he has previously taken great pleasure whO- detained in town in hot weather. For the rest the President seems lo be doing nothing in particular-but exerting influence from the south portico of the White House. which it is perfectly understood will prevent his party from doing anything in par ticular without his approval. Mrs. Wilson is aiding and abetting, and Watching to see that he does not try his strength too far-with Tumulty and Admiral Grayson seconding her efforts enthusiastically and intelli gently. When Admiral (rayson went up to Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., last week. picked out a charming cottage and leased it forthwith. there was a lit ile flutter of interest and Dame Ru :nor began spread it around that the "Summer White hlouse" had at last been selected. The admiral, however, goon exploded that theory by an nouncing that he had talken the cot ttage for his own family. He would take them to the mountains shortly -Mrs. Grayson and he'r two adorable boys. Gordon and Cary T. Grayson jr.--and would establish them there or the rest of the summer. And he Id, motoring up with them o n hursday and coming back almost mmediately. He will visit them at lue Ridge as often as his duties per it, but probably will not be away or very long at a time. Mrs. Wilson's mother and sister, !irs. William H. Bolling and Miss ertha Bolling, also left town last eek. going to Atlantite City, where r. and Mrs. Julian Bolling were al eady staying. The .lulian Bollings re at the Marlborough-Blenheim, ut I haven't heard where the rest of he family are staying. . Apparently Miss Margaret Wilson s to linger on in New York througI he summer --or, more correctly, she s making her headquarters in New sork.

FINDS SOME HUMOR IN 1920 CAMPAIGN. Considerable humor-much of it unconscious-is undoubtedly going to be injected into the Presidential cam paign, and that's somethipg to be thankful for in this day of horrors and tragedies of all sorts. The para graph announcing that the third party candidate. Parley P. Christen sen, would be dubbed the "good-bye candidate" because his initials are "P. P. C."-and well. perhaps, there ARE other reasons-tickled my funny bone. And to my mind there was real humor in the prohibition ticket first suggested - Bryan and Billy Sunday-particularly in view of the fact that the Rev. Mr. Sunday has come out strongly in favor of Sena tor Harding. wio must be anathema to Mr. Bryan. I also loved the' suggestion of a certain lady politician, put forth as the Democratic convention was be ginning, that Mr. Wilson be nomi nated for President and a big strong man picked for second place so that the Vice President could do the work and the President have the honorthe idea being to make Mr. Wilson a sort of "President Americus." as it were to quote a beautiful phrase coined by a certain collcge alumnus, a wee bit happier than he had any right to be in prohibition days, when he had oc casion to mention the ex-president of the university. lut to my mind the prize example of unconscious humor or was it entirely unconscious? s far contributed to the gayety of iations was Senator Penrose's plaint that Governor Cox had been nomi nated by the bosses! I'm going to have that statement framed. MIRS. WALSH T41 ENTHUSE DEMOCRATIC WOMEN HERE. So far as political activities are oncerned-and we di) get tremendous ly active every little while even if we haven't a vote-the most interest ing recent development is the appoint ment of Mrs. Thomas F. Walsh to the post of Democratic national commit teewoman for the District. In this capacity she will have full charge of "the feminine half of the campaign" whatever that may mean--in Wash ington. Early in August she'll bo back from California. where she has been "playing around" since the con vention with Vice President and Mrs. Marshall as her contant companions, and is prepared to launch a whirl wind campaign. She is to be assisted by a live committee of seventy-five women and members of the central committee claim that it will be the most aggressive oirganization of wme'n workers the Dlistrict has ever seen.

Mr. Rob natic service and is now on duty at drs. Price Collier. in for a very dull week. Captain Ter auka of the Japanese crusier. Kasuga, reached town, with twenty of his officers, and there was a little burst of entertaining in their honor. To be sure, this visit was of immediate personal interest only to the members of the Japanese colony in Washington and certain high ranking American naval offieers---the only persons who actually had opportunity to meet the visitors from overseas. But it was of interest to all of us to read about the great cruiser's voyage half round the world to take part in the cen tennial celebration in Maine and to bring messages of good will to the American Government. After the festivities in Maine were over. the Kasuga lay at anchor In New York harbor for a week. and it was then the Japanese amtfassador, Mr. Shidehara. went up to New York to inspect her. Then she went to Annapolis, where she now lies. and early this week, after her officers have made a pilgrimage to Hlog ldand to inspect the work now going on theve, she will set sail for' Nor folk, New Orleans. Havana and then for San Francisco via the Panama Canal. Captain Teraoka and his staff reached Washington on Thursday afternon, and, after a bit of sight seeing, were entertained at dinner that night by the Japanese Ambassa dor and Mme. Shidehara. It was an informal sort of digner, at which men predominated, but the ladies con nected with the embassy staff were among the guests, and these pie turesqlie little personis added no lit tle to the charm of the function. Next (lay Captain Teraoka called upon the Acting Secretary of the Navy and other functionaries, andi when they journeyed down to Annapolis later in the day to return the call they were entertained at luncheon aboard the Kasuga. On this occasion the Japanese ambassador was among the guests, with several members of the embassy staff. And, of course, there were a number of naval officers on duty here as well as some of the Naval Academy officials. SIR THOMAS LIPTON PROVEN HES THRIFTY. Sir Thomas Lipton's prontised visit to the British embassy is a matter of rather more general interest, for everybody knows the genia! Irish eportaman. In fact, Sir Thomas has many good friends in Washington as lie has all over the country- --and quite a few were favored with the eagerly desired cards to see at least one of the internationtal cup races from the dee of his yacht. D)o you happen to have had one of those cards? Or seen one? They are about the size of an ordinary cor respondence card, gilt edged, i no ticed, which they wouldn't have been had they been made on this side of the water. The heavy cream whie envelope in which they are inclosed bears no yachting pennant, hut across the flap in plaIn raised gold type the words "Shamrock IV." The card has the blue and red pennant of the Ulster Yacht Club and the Shamrock's own lit tle green and gold one, crossed in one corner, and carries the usual for mal ertgraved, "Sir Thomas J. Lipton requests the pleasure of the company of," with blanks left to fill In the names and the occasIon. Dlown in one corner the name of his yacht-the Erin-has been crossed out and the Victoria written above it. It reminded nme of the first year that the Marshalls were at the Willard, and were thriftily using up cards left Now Is the Timie To Have Your Furs Repaired Every facility for repair ing and remodeling furs and fur coats is found in our establishment.

However. nobody turnr.ei down their invitation on that score any more than they did Sir Thomas'. And I fancy few of those went begging' In fact, there was quite a general feeling that we rather hoped he'd lift the cup- he's been such a splendid old sport about it, and it wo-uld make it much more interesting. But. of course. we want to bring it hack next year. So, how ever the races went there was ovi dently to be no hard feeling. SIR AUCKLAND GEFDI)FEM UNLUCKY SPECTATORt. The way in which the races have been strung out has naturally nlade the exact date of Sir Thomass' visit uncertain. but probably he'll come down early this week. And then there'll undoubtedly be some sort of a gathering of the clans in his honor. Any entertaining at the British em bassy will be more or less Informal. I presume, for the ambassador is liv ing en garcon while Lady Geddcs is abroad, and, besides. ' "everybody's away." In spite of this constantly reiterated fact, there ARE enough pe'ople left in town to make quite a representative gathering. h e British Ambassador.

HIURNAYTON - IN TNE VAPITAL. The lady who perpetrated the Irishism that "Washington does its hibernating in rummer" wasn't so very far wrong-this summer. And yet many of the diplomats are here, Cabinet members are In and out mostly "in"---and official folk seem to be enjoying the absence of the social duties of officialdom. Mecretary Colby is back at his desk in the State Department and only occasionally gets u to New York to spend a day or twd with his family.
