The Attorney General and Mrs. Cummings 1 home, which they have leased for the season, is on a hilltop overlooking Rock Creek Park. The winding driveway seemed a mile long, and there was a continuous line of cars.

Mrs Garner, who has never been train- sick before, but was on this 'trip laid it all to the luxurious food served to the vice president and her on ithe train. Mrs. Garner says she intends to play her vice presidential role in society, but in her own way. In her opinion it is not necessary for people to follow each other like sheep. She, like Mrs. Roosevelt, believes is not obligatory for every hostess to do exactly what others have done before them. Anyway there will be no Garner-Rainey controversy Precedence doesn't mean a (thing to Mrs. Garner. First Lady Smokes Cigorets. Yes, Mrs. Roosevelt does smoke Mrs. Garner does not. Mrs. Rainey loves it; has smoked for years. These are our first three First Ladies. It seems the nicotine habit is taken for granted in most homes all the way from. Grandma to Sweet Sixteen. One never gives it a thot now, anyway in this city, to see all ages smoking. Mrs. Roosevelt is HOUSANDS of folks hove used Grenadier Coal season after season for twenty years and more.

The Emil Krafts spgnt Sunday t Fred Kulow's at Bancroft. We found the largest crowd here. The tea table was particularly lovely. It waa adorned wth. great silver bowls of calla lilies and tapers in three-pronged candle sticks. One of Mrs. Cummings specialties was little cheese biscuits served piping hot, and that is quite a feat, to serve so many and have them piping- hot. Luncheon roods Delicious. Speaking of specialties, at each Senate ladies luncheon we are usually served with one "special" dish of each one of the committee on duty that day. We do not serve our Senate luncheons in courses. \fe put everything; on a long table that we possibly can, and only pass whait is absolutely necessary. No flowers or centerpiece adorn our .table. The only decoraitons are the doaen or more nickel thermos bottles of coffee that dot the center of the table from end to end. But my! the food. It is always delicious, meats, salads, rolls, and cakes. Even those on a diet cannot resist these- platters of goodies. We met last week for the first tune this winter. On arriving at the Senate office building I found that two huge new rooms had been turned over for the weekly luncheon. These rooms are part of the new wing just finished and are just across the hall from each other. In one is a long table which will seat ninety or more women. This is w here we eat. In the other room are several tables where we do our sewing and Red Cross work. I just couldn't count the number Radios, •the first First Lady of the Land to Smoke, and she says she does it just •to put her guests at ease (guests who wish to smoke, I mean.) It has always been the rule that there be no smoking by the women at our Senate luncheons, and this rule had always been kept until at the first luncheon that Mrs. Roosevelt was our guest. Knowing that she smoked, a hurried consultation of the food committee took place just before Mrs. Roosevelt arrived Should we or should we not break our rule? Well, it was decided it should be broken, and the chairman of the committee was sent out to buy cigarettes, or maybe they made a collection among themselves Not being on that partcular committee I do not know. But when the First Lady sat down to tho table cigarettes were before, her. and she smoked. Mrs. Roosevelt Ready Speaker. I am sure if Mrs. Roosevelt had known of our rule she would never have taken a cigarette, but, needless to say, the rule once broken it has stayed broken- Mrs. Garner, who says she Is afraid of her own voice: except in using it as her husband's secretary, has always maintained that the wife of a public man. should not speak in public. Perhaps Mrs. Roosevelt will convince her that ehe is wrong. There is no doubt that Mns. Roosevelt believes in it for eeldom does a day go by but she- makes a speech somewhere. One can hardly stay away fronv the Capital. We that Congress was going to come in. and go out like ai lamb, but we were mistaken and we are likely to .be here many months. There Is plenty of fireworks and It's fun to seei them go off. There are- many interesting personalities in the new Congressional group. Whether they will make as good legislators as dentists, farmers, football -players, professore, boxers, only time will tell. r- FLAVOR That is why YOU should try Butter-Nut Why does Butter-Nut lead in saleeT Flavor!
