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.

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

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

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 would be no formal pro

Mrs. Harding was not strong
enough to undertake anything of*
that sort, a number of projected
debuts would be deferred for a

a few and these are more likely
