G. and E. auditorium. Grapefruit of such high quality is being grown in British Honduras, that the area devoted to the fruit has increased in six years from 25 acres to many vast estates. "Two things I wanted "... and it was all so simple when I found out my trouble. My physician said I had no organic disease, but I did have what is so commonly called a low percentage of hcmo-glo-bin i" the blood. "The reasonableness of one of the S.S.S. ads | caused me to tliink that S.S.S. Tonic was just ·what I needed for my let-down feeling and pimply skin. I wanted more strength and a clear skin. "It didn't take S.S.S. vcrj long to get my blood back up to normal--and as my strength and energy returned my skin cleared up." If your condition suggests a tonic of this kind, try S.S.S. It is noh just a so-called tonic but a tonic specially designed to stimulate gastric secretions, and also having the mineral elements so very, very necessary in rebuilding 'the oxygen- ' carrying hemo-glo-bin of the blood. S.S.S. value has been proven by generations of use, as well as by' modern scientific appraisal. Sold by all drug two sizes...the Vlarger is more economical. · o the s.s.s. Co. I found out my trouble" Debates Prove as Interesting as Social Life of Washington. i EDITOR'S NOTE:--Mrs. L. J. Dickinson, wife of Iowa's son- ator finds doings in congress as interesting as the social life of Washington to describe in her letter back home this week. Dear Jane: Lent or no Lent, the social calendar has been fairly bristling with parties, most of them informal to be sure--but then, if we were really honest with ourselves we would own up that the informal parties are those we all enjoy the most. There are many newcomers in Washington's ."official circles"--most of them attached to some letter of the "alphabet." Some of them are suffering'.from stage fright, bothered by details of procedure and precedence with which they are naturally unfamiliar no matter what their social connections were back home. But many of them seem to be taking to the life as a cat to cream and are delighted with the contacts with diplomats and dignitaries. Exciting debates are going on over in the capitol these days and we are spending a good many afternoons sitting in the gallery of either the house or the senate. One can hardly decide which is the roost interesting--the house or the senate. But it certainly was exciting the other afternoon in the senate chamber as the senators debated whether or not they should vote to over-ride the president's veto on the pay and pension issue. Every seat and every bit of standing room in all the galleries was crowded. The crowds began to assemble early hi the morning, and all seats were filled before the senators arrived, at noon. You see, this bill meant much to the federal worker and also to the vet- Mot/ierV little helper needs "Vitamin D" Bread eran. Even just a little more pay would help a lot. By two o'clock guards and capitol police were blocking the stairways leading up from the ground floor, to turn away late comers. Surprising Disorders. Time and again as senators made clean hits in argument the packed hundreds yelled approval. I was told their disorder which brought much, pounding of the gavel by the presiding officer (Senator B. Champ Clark of Missouri) surpassed any seen in the senate since the proclamation of war in 1917. One young man was asked to leave the galleries by a deputy of the sergeants-at-arms because in his excitement he hung his hat on a bust in one of the niches above the seats. The interest was so great that in the late afternoon the whole rear of the senate chamber was massed with members of the house--many more were there than were present at the moment on the house floor. Alice Takes .Notes. Alice Longworth, dressed in a green suede coat, brown skirt and a brimmed brown hat seemed to be enjoying it all immensely. She was busy taking notes but did not miss a word of the speeches. Senator Pat McCarran arrived with great excitement to everyone, incuding himself. He had had the most hectic time getting back from Maine in time to vote on this bill. Senator McCarran had been sent up to Maine to make some democratic speeches but word came to him that the president had vetoed his pet bill and that the veterans bloc needed his vote. Such a neat Paul Revere act has not taken place since the historic day when Vice President Dawes came racing up Pennsylvania avenue in an automobile too late to break a tie vote in the senate. The senator came back to Washington by automobile, by train and by plane. He got here in time for the voting but after all his vote was not needed. The veto of the president was overridden by a vote of 63 to 27. I expect that the tariff bill will be just as exciting when it is brought up in the senate. See Amaryllis. The other morning Mrs. Wallace, "Vitamin D st meager in most foods, is vital to the proper develop' tnent of children's bones and teeth jjruits, vegetables, milk, cream, and meats contain every vitamin, vMi the exception of "Vitamin"D", in sufficient quantity for all human need. .

OW---Monsignor Michael Barry, 76, vicar general of the archlocese of Dubuque, died suddenly today. He collapsed just as he closed the missal at the conclusion of reading a mass in the private chapel in St. Anthony's home. He was ordained June 5, 1885, in Ireland and came to the archdiocese In Dubuque shortly afterward. He had served under three archbishops and was outstanding in scholarship, being a .professor at wife of the secretary of agriculture, was hostess to Mrs. Roosevelt, the wives of the diplomats and of the cabinet and to a few friends at a private showing of some twelve hundred amaryllis blooms at the department of agriculture greenhouse. The amaryllis is a native Brazilian flower and it is in its native state, about half the size of the blooms now on display here. Since the original bulbs were brought here In 1909 from England, experiments have been carried on, until now they are among the most beautiful flowers grown in any country. Most of Lhe blossoms spread out to about the size of a saucer and they look almost like crepe paper. A few of :hem measure 10 inches from tip to lip. They range in color from dark red through various shades of red and pink and striped types of pure white. Mrs. Roosevelt who arrived just before I did, wore a brown wool sports dress. Her hat was also brown. Mrs. Wallace, who -walked among the blosoms with Mrs. Roosevelt, was in blue. Each plant bears two flower stems with from two to seven flowers on each stem. But there was one plant which had 32 flowers. This was unusual. Several years ago the department produced the first white amaryllis ever shown. This year there are several new shades of yellow. A delegation of the leading florist's organizations in the country and several from South America say that this is the greatest amary'- lis show ever held anywhere in the world. I do wish you could be here to see these gorgeous flowers. New Spring Clothes. Mrs. Roosevelt, just back from a day in New York, will soon appeal 1 in two new costumes, so the society columns say. An ensemble of navy blue pin dotted wool, with a swagger coat edged with quilted scallops and lined with Eleanor blue crepe of which the blouse is made. With this costume she is to wear a navy blue straw hat trimmed with grosgrain ribbon. A blue woolen handbag matches the suit. We 'will also see her wearing a a suit of light blue crepe, with a feather print design of black and a long yoked cape of black lined with the dress material. A black tricorne hat trimmed with taffeta petals goes with this outfit. The white house had issued instructions for the usual Easter egg, rolling on Easter Monday. Many are asking what colors is General Hugh Johnson permitting- us to use this year in dyeing our eggs ? The president has gone fishing but Mrs. Roosevelt will be at the egg rolling --also Sistie and Buzzie Dahl, who have just recovered from the measles. Spring has come at last but with its coat on. The cherry blossoms will be late but when they do arrive apout the middle of April they will be greeted by a three day festival. All Washington will take part. Affectionately, MYRTLE C. DICKINSON. | HADASSAH MEETS WITH MRS. RICHER Mrs. Sam Richer, 321 Third street northwest, was hostess to the Hadassah society Tuesday afternoon at her home.
