DIPLOMATIC CHANGES,, ACTUAL AND POTENTIAL, ROUSE INTEREST"
?uoceeeor. For a long tine noth ing happened. but when It wu finally given out that Prince and rilimsss Luboulnka were re turning everybody ?u delighted. It developed, however, that they were only oomlng tor a few weeks, probably with the Idea of setting the legation In order to turn over to the new minister. e e, e WITH the new President in augurated In Argentina, the appointment of Dr. Le Breton's successor as ambassador to the Unltsd States is likely to be njade at any time. So far, however, I've heard no rumors as to who It Is to be.. Dr. Le Breton, Jby the way, must be busy as a bird log, for he Is at presegt holding two portfolios In the cabinet of Presi dent ds Alvsar. He la secretary of Agriculture?his regular Job? and he Is acting foreign minister pending the arrival in Buenos Ayres of Senor Gallardo, who, until his' elevation to the foreign ministry, was Argentine ambassa dor at Roma It Is said that Dr. Le Breton's appointment to the department o* agriculture was largely due to the work he performed In gather ing agricultural Information for his government during bis stay In Washington. This Is, of course, a subject of tremendous Importance to a great agricul tural country like Argentina and. In fact, the government maintains an attache at the embassy hero who devotes his time solely to the investigation of agricultural problems. e e e TT Is rumored that the new am bassador Of Japan may be Baron Ishil, now ambassador at Paris, or perhaps Mr. Hanlhara, who was one of the Japanese delegates to the arms conference. Either would be persona grata, for both have served at the em bassy here and both have many friends. It was Baron Ishii, you may remember, who was head of the Japanese war mission which visited this country in the earlv days of our participation In the gf-eat war and afterward he was ambassador here for a little while, presenting his credentials to President Wilson in 1918. I never he?s Bsron Ishll's name without thinking back to the reception given In honor of the Japanese mission by the Japanese embassador of the moment, Aimaro Sato, which was one ef the most picturesque events of a season which made history. I remember that two rival stars stole the spotlight from ths "Missionaries", Mme. Tamikl Mlura, the engaging little Japan ese prima donna, who sang during the evening and who wan gorgeously clad in ths rich sliks and embroideries of old Jspan, and Senator "Jim Ham" Lewis, wearing white duck trousers with a swallow tail coat! ? ? ? * PROPOS of possible ? nay,. probable?^diplomatic appoint ments, one hears that the new Oreek government Is likely to send Lambros A. Coromllas to Washington as Minister. This news is particularly pleasing to the old timers who remember the Roosevelt Administration, for they knew Mr. Coromllas when he was Greek Minister here from 1901 to 1910, wore fond of his wife, who Was formerly Anna Cookrell. daugh ter of the late Senator Cockrell, and remember their marriage. This wss a very brilliant event, with the President and Mrs. Roose velt, witnessing the ceremony sad attending the reception at Rauseher's, where were assembled the diplomatic corps, the cabinet, the Supreme Court, the Senate in a body and many other big Wigs. e e e fpHE fact that Brig. Gen. Enoch H. R. Crowder blew Into Wash ington Just as Dr. Carlos Manuel 4e Cespedes, some time Cuban minister at Washington and now minister of foreign affairs at Ha vana, returned and that the two were frequently closeted with Sec retary Hughes, gave color to the rumor that General Crowder Is to be sur next minister to Cuba. It would be a logical appointment, as the general Is nearing the age of retirement, and, on the whole, a popular one, as he is exceedingly well liked In Cuba, despite certain strong opposition. But he has started back to Havana without any definite announcement having been made. P. G. Harding, some time governor of the Federal Reserve Beard, is accompanying tho general to Havana?or following blm?having been Invited by the president of the republic to make a survey of Cuban finances and suggest msthods of reorganisation. It was partly to push the pro posed loan of I SO,000,000 to Cuba that Dr. de Cespedes returned to Washington after a tour months' absence and partly to begin preparations to turn over the legation here to his successor?not yet named. He will be sailing soon for home, taking Mme. de Cespedes and her daughter. Miss Flaminla Sarmiento. with him; and meanwhile a number of patties are being given In their honor. The Peru via iu Am t and Mme. de Peaet had a lunch PRINCESS BERTHA CANTACUZENE, one of the most successful of last season's debutantes, has returned, to Washington and is again with her grand, mother, Mrs. Frederick Dent Grunt. She is the daugh ter of Prince and Princess Cantacuzene-Speransky, who will spend the winter with Mrs. Grant. King's Kinsman Visits Capita! ^yHILE Lord and Lady Mount batten were being feted and made much of, Washington was was entertaining an angel un aware?Prince Aimone, cbunsel of King Victor Emmanuel of Italy, who slipped quietly lnot town and slipped out again before anyone knew he was here. He was In Washington on Friday and de voted the day to sightseeing with members of the embassy staff. Prince Aimone, who Is en route to the Orient, is the second son of the Duke d'Aosta. last Sunday for Dr. and Mine, da Cespedes, and Dr. Itowe, directoj general of the Pan-American Union, gave a luncheon for the minister the other day. However, the reception which Dr. and Mme. de Oepedes were to have given on Wednesday afternoon by way of a f&rewell hospitality, had to be postponed because Dr. de Ceepedes had caught a heavy cold. ? ? * f>ARTIE8 for the retiring Serb ian Minister and Mme. Grouitch are of almost daily occurrence. Capt. Sidney R. Bailey, sometime naval attache of the British em bassy, and his bride (Mildred Brom well) are also being much feted prior to sailing for England on No vember 7. Frequently they share honors~Vith M. D. Peterson the good-looking and popular secretary of the British embassy, who has been detached and Is going home, or with Captain Francis Tot tenham, Captain Bailey's succes sor, who is being welcomed as the Baileys are sped on their way. In the same fa.ifcion, the new Serbian minister, Dr. Anton Tresich Pavichich, is being made much of by friends of his prede cessor. Several of the newcomers to the diplomatic corps have the distinction of representing coun tries newly recognized by Uncle Sam and but now Included in the diplomatic family. Latvia, Lithu ania and Esthonla, to whom our Government accredits but one en voy. Ach have separate diplomatic establishments here, and Albania is another newborn stato which has recently set up a legation at Washington. Valdemaras Carneckis, who has recently presented his credentials as charge d'affaires of Lithuania. ( is. if I mistake not. more or less of < a stranger to Washington, but C. Louis Seya, the Latvian charge, has been in Washington for a yqar or more, working for the recogni tion of his government, and he and charming Mme. de Seya have made many friends. The Chinese Minister and Mme. 8ze expect to leave Washington within the next week or ten days and will sail from Seattle for their home in China. One is assured that there is no political signifi cance to the trip and that the Sees are Just going home on leave, leaving little Miss Betty Bze here as a hostage for their return. Probably, however, they'll be away the greater part of six months, and that means that diplomatic assemblages will lack the touch of color supplied by little Mme. Sse in her picturesque Chinese dress. The three eldest Sse children are In school In Eng land. Mm*. See having Just re turned to this country after seeing them safely established there.

HAVY LEAGUES FESTivmEs a? WEEK'S GAYETES J "Navy Day" Cele brated Nationally; Oala Day Here TUTHIUO not. a national holiday. "N*vy Day"?-.Friday?waa ob aerved nationally, and, since It *u iif? the anrrtvaraary of the birth of Theodore Roosevelt. there waa e double celebration. It was a bis day In Waahlngton. with the Navy League running the ahow and the program marked by auch events aa ceremotilea at the grave of the "Unknown Soldier" at Arlington, and a pilgrimage to the statue of John Paul Jonea In Potomac Park. Then In the evening came the tyivy League's annual banquet.: which Is always a festive occasion. The Navy 'League has always been a power and numbers many Important personages among Its members. This wsa true even In the day* whep Josepbue Danlela waa Secretary of the Navy, and when the league, having had "words" with Mr. Daniels, was forced to fuqptlon without official sanction and to distribute through the Red Cross the comforts It pro vided for the "gobs." Under the present dlspeneatlon. however, the laague Is In high favor at the Navy Department, and Secretary Depby was ths bright particular star at the banquet of Prlday evening. Col Robert M. Thompson, "angel" of the Navy League, and honorary president, came to Washington especially to attend the meeting, and brought with him those very engaging British lions. Lord and Lady Mountbatten. who have been touring the West In the colonel's private car and having the time of their young lives while contribut ing materially to the good time pf everybody with Whom they have come In contact. The Mountbat tens?a cousin of King Ooorge and his bride, "the richest girl in Eu rope'?attended the Nsvy Day banquet with Colonsl Thompson, and pretty nearly "stopped the show." ao anxious was everybody to get a good look at them and to be presented to them. This, however, was only a cur tain raiser to their proposed visit to Washington. They left town sgain yesterday for Florida, having been promised some tarpon fish ing?but will return on No days. Colonel Thompson took his guests to ths Thomas Nelson Ps'ge houss. which he has leassd for the season and which was all In readi ness to receive them. I haven't heard whether Mra. Thompson haa arrived yet from Whits Sulphur Sprinys. where she has been stay ing while her husband was show ing the Mountbattens ths country from a car?a private jeai^-wln dow. but aha will arrive in time to play hostess for them when they come back. 8he had a sever* ill ness last summsr and didn't fssl strong enough/ to attempt ths fa tiguing transcontinental Journey, so hsr daughter. Mrs. Stsphsn H P. Pell, played hostess for hsr father. Everywhere that the Mountbat tens wsnt thsy seemed to make a genuine pergonal hit. very much as the Prlncs of Walss did?who. by the way, was best man at thslr wedding a tew weeks ago. Thsy will put la a few days "doing Wsshlngtam" and being done by It. But whether they Will sse Wash ington In the short Intervals be tween parties or will accept only such Invitations as thsy can squeeze Into the Intervals betwsen ' their sightseeing expeditions Is a nice queitlon that Is yet to be de cided. On Thursday svsnlng. their one free evening of their first visit, Colonsl Thompson gavs a small dlnnsr at Hauschsv's for the Mountbattens, having poms of the young people to meet them. After ward. th* party went to Keith's to see Blele Janls. and aflat that, in turn. Mrs. Psll entertained them at Le Parsdls.

There really is rather an un. usually large group of them, in spite of the theory that since the White House had announced that there would be no formal pro gram of state functions there, as Mrs. Harding was not strong enough to undertake anything of* that sort, a number of projected debuts would be deferred for a year. Possibly there will be some postponements, but probably enly a few and these are more likely to be for personal or family reasons than for any lack of promise in the White House.
