OM World mm w?H m tb? now and to strengthen th* bonds of friendship and fd iowshlp. Am Mrs. Towner aptly puts tt: "Only through acquaintance and ?ndsrstandlng caa woman hope to hasten the time when "mental dis armament' will make possible per manent peace. The committee will try to help In creatine among the women of this and other countries an en lightened public opinion which will strengthen the demand for councils of ooncillation, Cor boards of arbitration, for an International court, and for other means of set tling international disputes by peaceful means." Study programs concerning phases of international relations Will be prepared; and th* commit ? tee is arranging to take up the study of international law, the re lation of the United State* to other countries, rhe movement toward international understand ing, treat!**, conference*, league*, ?tc.) and th* woman movement in all countrlaa. see J?BQINNLNO with the White House?where everything be gins socially in Washington?there has been very little doing. Last Saturday night the President stroUad up to Sana tor MediU Mc Cormlck'a along about dlnn*r time ?for th* surpris* party which was givatl th?r* for Unci* Jo* Cannon. Mrs. Harding didn't go, aa it was a stag party. But for all that it Was some party. All th* big wigs of th* Republi can persuasion were there, and lom* Democrats, and there wasn't a soul whom Unci* Jo* do*sn't call by hi* first name. They say the old boy was movsd almost to tears. I understand that this is the first of a series of farewells that are being planned for the former 8peaker, hero of a hundred fight a on the floor of the House and leader of many a forlorn hope Which under his leadership ceased to be forlorn. On Tuesday afternoon Mrs. Harding entertained a party at the National for the last of the Phila delphia Orchestra's concerts for this season Mrs. Harding is her ? self a trained musician?and old friends say that she really was "almost a professional" and It is a matter of deep regret with her thai ahe cannot keep it up. But only a few days ago. when some one ask ed her If she was keeping up her music she answered aadly that ahe wished she could, but It was simply out of the question. 8he had with her on Tu**day a group of h*r old Senatorial aaeociatea?Mrs. Howard Souther land. Mra. Taaker Oddie. Mrs. Joseph I. Francs and Mra William L. Calder, and Miss Har lan?who Is not merely the White House social secretary, but Mra. Harding's chosen companion on ' many occaslona Mra Harding l*em* to lean a good deal on Miss Harlan, and has her pretty con stantly with her. As a matter of tact. Miss Harlan -has been an integral part of Washington society and of unassailable posi tion. as one of Justice Harlan's daughters; and to the newcomers She probably appeals most aa aiater of James Harlan, of the Interatate Commerce Commission. ? ? ? ISN'T It good to have Mra. Franklin K. Lane, wife of the former Secretary of the Interior, with ua again' She has'come down from New York, her present, hom-. not' to visit anybody but ' just to *et In touch with her old friends. And she has taken an apartment at the Highlands for a month or hIx weeks In order to have quiet and leisure for her work?you know she Is compiling and editirig Mr. Uni's letters and th??y must be ready for the pub lisher within the month. However, when she elected to spend the spring season here, Mrs. Lan* had her daughter. Mrs. Philip C. Kauffmann. in nvlnd and that delectable small person, her grandson. Franklin Lane Kauff mann, born within a few months of his distinguished grandfather's death and named for him. Is just at an age when he grows over night; and Mrs Lane says she fe*l* that If sh? misses seeing him for many weeks she has lost something which cannot possibly be regained. The IAnea were long residents of Washington?they were identi fied not only with the Wilson Administration, but with the Taft and Roos*velt regime* before that ?and I don't believe there has aver hem a more popular pair In official life. Consequently Waah ington rejoice* that Mra. Lane ahould have an anchor here in th* parsons of h*r daughter and grandson?and a magnet to bring her occasionally to town. n AnwxvroN omcs lie* raaeeetleet Ave. St t. St. Tilm>H?

PROM now on until Barter things are apt to be pretty quiet. 8oclety really does pay a good deal more attention to the observance of Holy Week than to keeping Lent. And even during the week just past there haa been no very apectacular entertaining. Dinners? Tea, the usual grist of them, but the two events of the week which stand out as unusual are Mrs. Norman Williams' mu sicale on Thursday afternoon, and the tableaux vivants for the Oirl Scouts that evening. Mrs. Williams hsd the great Tlta Ruffo to sing for her guests, with Bdlth Marmion Broslua. harplat, supporting him. And thst was s treat, an experience which rather beggars description. Rutfo waa to have sung earlier in the aeaaon at a musicals given by Mr. ang Mra. EM ward Hamlin Everett, but illneaa prevented hia appearance. On thla ix;cusion, therefore, his place waa taken by Oigll, of the golden tenor voice. An ill wind that blown no body good, for in thla way a num ber of prominent Washlngtonlana hsd opportunity to hear two of ths Metropolitan's stars in the intimate setting of two of Washington's charming homss?Instead of listen ing to one great singer twice. Mrs. E. A. Harriman win also hostess at a musicals one after noon, her artists being talented amateurs and her guests being asked to meet her sister, Mrs. James P. Andrews, of Connecticut. e e e jplAMOUS Spanish paintings and picturesque old world legends were represented In the Olrl Scout tableaux?lovely things designed by an artist hand and posed by a group of Washington's prettiest women. The audience was excep tionally smart, and after the pro gram spectators and dramatic per sons* mingled In the Informal dancing with which the evening wound up. ? e e You may know that there waa not much doing when I tell you that even Mrs. Cooiidge took a week off. Partly, of course. It was dus to ths fact that the Vioe President waa away. Ha had promised to speak out in Mlchl i Kan?and that meant three even ings when be would of necessity be away?and consequently could not be entertained at dinner. For even If be went right out. and turned around and came right back again?which is precisely what he did?it's more than twenty-four hours each way on the train?and he had to stop one evening to make his speech. Then, there waa one or two parties called off. The Elizaldea, the minister of Ecuador and his wife, had a dinner planned, but they recalled their invitations and canceled all engagements when the news came of the death of a brother-in-law of senor Ellsalde's. i And Just about that tims young ! Hector Ellzalde. age about nine, I think, created a diversion by tum bling Into an excavation and breaking his leg. Then again, practically the only dance of the week?not a very b'g one, but still a dance?was cf.Iled off. Andor de Hertelandy. attache of the newly established Hungarian legation, had arranged one for Monday night, and people were rather Interested, If only be cause of ths newness of that lega tion, but he -called It off on ac count of the death of the former Austrian empsror. ? ? ? rPHE Minister of Chechoslovakia Dr. Stepanak was about the busiest host df the week. He and bis sister. Miss Stepanek (they tell me, by the way, that I should call that lady "Miss Stepankova"? that being the feminine form of the name?but it seems to me that that's too much to ask), one can't possibly follow the vagaries of all the names In the diplomatic corps. Anyhow, they sntertained at dinner on Monday night In honor of ths Secretary otg State and Mrs Hughes, on Wednesday night for ths French Ambassador and Mms. Juseerand. on Thuis day night for ths Frsnch Ambas sador and Mme. Jusserand. on Thursday for Mr. and Mrs Frank GUbraith. and last night they had a party for Dr. L. 8. Rowe. director of the Pan-American Union At ons at least of Dr. Ste panek's dinners?the one he gave Monday night for ths Hughnses? hs followed the dinner with some very Interesting movies of fits ' own land, showing the beauties of Prague, and the unlqus ra tional "Sokol"?a sort of gym nastic festival, or their version of ths Olympic games?witnessed by mors than M0.000 spectators. In which 11,000 men and 12,000 women participated In an un paralleled mass drill. Accompany ing ths pictures was some music, sslsctlons of national Osecho Slovak songs, which made up a unique and In targeting program. rHE two youngsters of the Agriculture Attache of the legation of Czechoslovakia, and Mme. Rudolf Kuraz are Eva, aged seven, and Dagmar, aged five. They are exceedingly pretty little maids with disposi tions as sunny as a June day.
