Bootlegger P in House Party Fun" The bootlegger with his synthetlo gin surely has put a "kick" In th* American house party, Th* bouse party one* was quite a dignified and orderly event. Men guest* who struck iMMteme* over the head with floor lamps were almost certain to be thrown out and socially ostre nted Women who suddenly took to great playfulness with a carving knffe. table leg or Colt automatic were stricken from the list of Nice People and "set In a cool, dry place" for the rest of their lives. Brawls ware considered poor form. ' The destruction of furniture and bric-a-brac was not regarded as deucedly clever. Homicide* were frowned upon by all persons who had been brought up well. It was j the time honored custom, up toj thre* years ago. for the guests to leave th* house In their carriage*, j car* or taxlcab* Instead of srotnjl ances and police wagons. Coroners, district attorneys snd polic* chief* seldom wera Invited In their off) ctal capacities. In those days It was ths custom to Issue guest lists to the society j reporter. Todsy they Issue casualty t lists. Vsrlly, th* house party of today l make* the old-time outing and bar becue of the Brldgeworkers and!

Aa most any modern hostess will tell you, th* people who attend house psrtles these days all seem to be members of th* house wreck ers' union. The party seldom gels under wsy before some of the guests begin to msnlfest convictions that they are members of an acro batic troupe. Nobody think* of giving a party without having tha chandelier* braced so at least two persona can awing on them. The prudent ho* tea* put* a concrete walk on the piano.
