T-TT- Society News of the Southwest By Lillian IJartman Johnson Patriotic Week All-absorbing Topic; Women's War Work Organizations Plan Assembly With Noted Speakers Artists Flock From Capital City, to AnciehtPueblo in Mountain Setting tqWithess Fiesta of San Geronimo Two DANCING and cards are playinit only a minor ptirt as a form oi' illuslonmcnt Just now.

There will le a great open meeting which will be addressed by the first lady of the state, speakers from the ,Ked Cross, the suffragists and the food conservationists. The program, not yet complete, lacks a woman speaker on prohibition. As Xew Mexico has now within her gates, MIsb Anna Gor don, who occupies the place of lead ership in temperance work that fell to her from the sainted Frances Wil lard, let us hope that this famous woman may be secured to speak to that open meeting, to the end that the women of New Mexico may be filled with the purpose of the greatest work they have to accomplish between now and the November election: the or ganization of the voting forces against alcohol, and the "getting out" of the vote on election day that will win for prohibition, and enable the Sunshine state to hold her head high and un ashamed in the Union.

Bennlng had a surprise party Monday evening that was not of their- own making, 1l chanced to be their fifteenth wedding anniversary, and they had gone to the Alvarado to dine, in Just a cosy teto tete duet style, and , while they sat thus chatting tenderly of the little blind god that had led them along such pleasant paths, the entire force of the Y. M.. C. A. had taken pos session of their home, and was busy preparing for them a second banquet. When they arrived they were received by Mrs. M. A. Perrin, Mr. Harry Ack erson, Mr. Victor Duran, Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Dean, Mr. Fred Landfelde, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Metts, and their son. Dean, and Mrs. J. C. Proffltt. Gaiety reigned supreme until the houi arrived and the wedding supper, when everything that combines to make an elaborate spread was served to the honor guests, Mr. and Mrs. Benning, who also were presented with a hand some set of cups and saucers. O ART EXHIBIT OF TUESDAY CLUB DREW MANY VISITORS. The Tuesday club has .Just com pleted what we hope may be only the first of a series of successful art ex hibits. This one was lent by the Archaeological museum at Santa Fe and arranged under the direction of Mr. Van Soelen, whose paintings of Albuquerque and its vicinity are well known to all art-lovers In this city The pictures, though few In number, form an Interesting and fairly repre sentative exhibition of the work that Is being produced In New Mexico by ten and women of national and inter national repute. None of the pictures are large, but all the types are there. Mr. Rolshoven, one of the Taos col ony, shows a typical head of an Indian boy, and a still life of pottery and blankets. The artist Is best known for the fine portrait work he ha done in Florence, but Bince the out break of the war he has become en chanted with the Taos Indians and is painting many portraits of financiers and society women among the ab origines. The Santa Fe colony is rep resented by Chapman, Fabian, Vlerra, Parsons and Musgrave. Mr. Vlerra, Who Is one of the artists working on the new museum, has here two paint ings of the pueblos of Aroma and San Ildefonso, and two charming Santa Fe scenes. Parsons, whose work is well-1 known here as a result of an exhibit held at the' Country. club some time ago, has two scenes well calculated to satisfy his admirers. Both are Santa Fe views adobes, trees and the soft warm lights that are Mr. Parsons' j specialties. Mrs. Fabian has a small study of an adobe house, typical of her New Mexico work and one larger can vas a water scene. Mr. Musgrave, n English artist of note, who has done his bit In the trenches and been Invalided home, shows by his two studies, one of the new museum in Santa Fe and one smaller scene, that the spirit of the west Is as clear to him as to many artists who have been working here much longer. Mr. Chap man, whose New Mexico work Is so fine, is represented in this exhibit only by four small scenes from eastern mountains. They are none the loss charming, hut they work a sharp contrast with the other pictures. Mr. Stanson's Little Ranch and Mr. Hen- nlngs' Laguna pictures introduce two new arrivals to the New Mexico art colonies. Mr. Hennlng's work is espec ially charming and he promises to be come permanently located in this slate. Most Interesting perhaps to Al buqueruueans is the work of Mr. Van Soelen, who has been painting here for some months and who finds this town and Its surrounding country of endless Interest. He shows at the Elks' club rooms only two pictures, one a por trait of Miss Fleisch- and one Albu querque scene, a Spring Morning in Old Albuquerque. His work, most of which is exhibited only in his studio, shows fine appreciation of the quaint beauties of the Mexican anS the adobe and rare interpretative power. The ladies of the Tuesday club have certainly done one good thing for the town In making possible this exniuit, und they should be offered all encour agement to repeat the experiment on i larger scale.
