EDITOR'S NOTR--Dinner'at tlie white house occupies most of Mrs. t,. J. Dickinson's letter to Jane this week. The in vita- ' tioh to the white house, what the guests wore, how they were received, .the table appointments and the meal aro detailed by Mrs. Dickinson. Tho dinner / which the Dickinsons attended was informal-anil coffee was . served in the- Hoover's living room on the second floor rather than. In one of the first floor : rooms. Mrs. Dickinson's next letter will concern some interesting changes made by the .Hoovers since their advent in the white house. My Dear Jane: Another invitation to dinner at the white house--My! how thrilled I was and excited, too, when answering the telephone the other morning I found I was talking to Miss Hall at the white house. Miss Hall is one of Mrs. Hoover's secretaries. She told me that the number of guests would be small and that the president would 'wear his tuxedo and black' tie. That meant the dinner would be very informal. I accepted, of course--who wouldn't? and could hardly wait till husband got home to tell him of our invitation. The next morning a note came from Miss Hall saying that the President and Mrs. Hoover were delighted that . we were to take dinner with them, etc.; and again -I was told the presi- . dent would wear his I black tie. . . I suppose it seems funny to you for us to be told what our host is going to wear, but we are so very I glad when they dp tell us.- In Wash I ington more than any place else on I must be correctly dressed. We ar terribly, embarrassed if we make faux pas--but it does happen some ' times.

President Hoover might not care but the policemen at the en[ trance and the colored man who runs out and assists us out of our car might have been impressed. But the old "campaign" car had do and husband was his own chauffeur. As it was I suppose the I policemen wondered how the owner of a little car like ours could boast an 84 number. We entered the big marble lobby each side of which is almost covered with a carved gilt framed mirror. Here we removed our wraps and were greeted by an aid who, after giving husband an envelope in which was a card telling him the i name of his dinner partrier,'; escorted us'to the door-of the blue room and Introduced us to the guests who had already arrived. My dinner partner immediately came up and told mo that he was to be my escort. Met In Blue Room. After all the guests had arrived the aid came to the door ot the blue room and told us to stand in a semi-circle--the President and Mrs. Hoover were then announced and were introduced all around--we immediately farmed in line, with the President and Mrs. Watson {wife of Senator Watson of Indiana) leading, and went into the dining room where colored waiters seated us at the table. I was second on Mrs. Hoover's ri.^ht and husband, second on the president's right. Mrs. Hoov- 'H* had on a dark winei colored velvet gown. The table looked lovely with the old knobbed glass ware, fine cream colored doilies and tall glass candlesticks. The flowers were pink roses--four bowls of them.

At last: I was to get beyond the iron gates--you can imagine my delight. A woman's curiosity your husband will say. The President and Mrs. Hoover and two or-three of'the guests went up in the elevator--the rest of us walked up the grand stairs. Rooms Are Open. The first floor of the white house s well known to capital folk--most myone can see the red room, the Iue room, the green room (tho none f them are really those colors any more), the east room with its gold ianp, gold chairs and sometimes le state dining room but it is only le few who have the privilege of limbing the grand stairs or of rid- ng up in the tiny electric elevator, A wide hall on the second floor runs the length of the white house- here on both .sides are .low book cases filled with, books ana oh · top of the book cases are treasures ot every-description presumably given to the Hoovers while on their many visits to other countries.

Globe-Gazette Offers New Booklet on INTERIOR DECORATING .Do you realize, in creating a color scheme for your decorating that every objecl in a room has a color role to play? The background should be rather neutral. The rug should be of darker value and definitely keyed to the color of the walls. The furniture may be keyed to the woodwork or the walls. The room will look larger if it is keyed to the walls. The smaller the piece of furniture the /more intense its color may be. For example, a bright orange lamp is attractive, whereas an orange davenport would be too garish. Draperies should be in lighter values than the furniture, for they are nearer to the top of the room, but they should not be of so intense a hue that the other furnishings are overlooked. Such is the helpful, practical manner in which decorating problems are discussed in the new booklet, INTERIOR DECORATING. Send for a copy today, using this coupon.

Insure Uniformity by Their Patented, Continuous Process Coffee experts agree that blend alone, regardless of quality^ will not produce a perfect cup of coffee, " tp_roB3tine of the blend lies the secret of perfect flavor. The common method of roasting coffee in bulk falls short in developing flavor, because it is riot possible to roast every berry evenly. Realizing thirf, Hills Bros., after years of experimenting, discovered and patented a continuous process of roasting coffee a little at a time. Control is the watchword of this process. The quantity of coffee passing into the roaster does not vary: The speed of operation and temperature remain the same with the result that Hills Bros. Coffee is absolutely uniform. This process, .fittingly called "Controlled Roasting, gives a flavor in the cup that no other, coffee has. Hills Bros. Coffee never "goes stalo because it is packed in vacuum cans. Ordinary cans, even if air-tight, do not. keep coffee fresh because air, which destroys the flavor of coffee, is inside. By the vacuum process, air is taken out of the can and kept out. Hills Bros. Coffee is sold everywhere by grocers. Aak for it by name and look for the Arab--tho trade-mark--on the cnn. Hills Bros. Coffee, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota.
