A social evening followed the business meeting. you had attended but I em afraid that is impossible so I will just try to tell you of my impressions. Washington is such a beautiful place. It is an experience just to spend a few days there. However, a few days could never do justice to the many beautifu and interesting things that are to b seen. It was a very busy place when I arrived. The 6,000 delegates and tlv many other members of D. A. R. ha< completely taken over the city. Tin cab man was very much worried ft) fear that I had failed to make a ho tel reservation. He had just returned from calling at seven hotels trying to find a room for a delegate who had no a reservation;' However, mine was waiting for me. Met in Constitution Hall. Entcrtalned for Aunt— Mrs. R. H. Crawford entertalnec ight ladies Thursday for Dr. Craword's aunt, Mrs. Kimball of Webster City, who has been visiting here. Mrs H. E. Rist won the high prize for jridge. Royal Neighbors— The R. N.' A. will meet Thursday evening at eight o'clock. All members are requested to be present as there is, Important business to be looked after. Mrs. liable Rente's division will I had no difficulty finding the place of the congress. One only needed to follow the man ystreams of women al going to one place. The home of D. A B. thrills one to be a member of such an organization. A beautiful building that takes its place very fittingly with Washington's other lovely places. This of course, was the first year that the congress had met in the new Constitution Hall. As you all know, Constitution Hall is the new auditorium in the new addition to the Continental Hall. The organization had outgrown the old home and the new building was added to it. They are connected with two passageways enclosed in glass. The new building is mainly occupied by the audi- j torium. It Is one of the nicest I have ever seen. The color scheme is in blue, the color of unity, as our president, Mrs. Hobart explained, national unity, unity in our society. The stage is a masterpiece of simplicty. The Georgian doors on either side are a pleasure. A typical mural as a back- jround, the scenes of colonial and revo- utionary activities done in gorgeous blues, rose, green, Is most fitting. The stage was indeed, a picture with the speakers and their pages, each holding enormous bouquets. It seems the cus- om to deluge the officers and speak- serve. D. of A. Meeting—, Cbe Catholic Daughters of America will hold an election of officers Wednesday night of this week at the K. of 0. Iball. This will be a regular meeting. Missionary Society— The Woman's Foreign Missionary society of the Methodist church will meel Thursday afternoon at the home of Mrs. H. L. Gilmore. Annual Reports— Next Sunday morning at the regular church hour at the Methodist church the church organizations will give their annual reports. Ladies' Aid— The Congregational Ladles' Aid so ciety will meet at the church Thursda afternoon at three-thirty. (.!—.;;— W. R. C. Bake Sale— The W. R. C. will have a bake sale at the Anderson Meat Market Saturday, September 13. his speech which was broadcast over a national hook-up. A rather embarrassing pause occurred as he rose to speak when he was forced to wnit for -trie radio hook Up. He saved it by beaming very genially at his enthusiastic audience. I was very much im pressed with his talk. It had been so much the custom for speakers to flatter greatly the D. A. R. audience and really say very little. But not President Hoover, he had something to say and said it in as deliberate manner, wlthno recourse to flighty soarings of imagination. It was really a speech with no recourse to flighty soarings of Hoover spoke definitely on the subject of World-Wide Peace. He strongly advocated the World. Court. The president remained for the address by Senator Fess on the Constitution. It was very fitting that the Constitution should be discussed by an authority In the hall that has been dedicated to the American constitution. To me, the Interesting new thing about our constitution was that the men who formed the original constitution were astute enough to form something that was general enough to last all these years with very few additions. In other words, instead of forming rules to fit some very particular cases, they formulated somelhlng that will last all time and be as fitting as it was in their time. A very regrettable occurrence was the leaving of people before the president left. However, the_.D. A. R.'s felt it could not have been of the delegates to the congress who would be so discourteous but rather some of the people who had come in when the doors were opened at a certain time. The public was admitted at eterht and all vacant seats were then filled. Luncheon for lowaus, Tuesday was the luncheon of the Iowa delegates. It was a verv lovely formal getting logetbei with n few welcoming talks by the lown members residing in Washington and a brief visit of President Hobart. She spoke especially of the Young Pioneers, an organization of young people based on communistic ideas, who are springing up around the country. She said that the hardly expected we of th<? agricultural districts would be mncli bothered with them. The afternoon was spent in a pilgrimage to the historic Mount Vernon where wreathes were laid at the tombs of the Washingtons. {Mount Vernon is a classic of beauty. One could never do Justice to the stately beauty of it in a verbal description. The lovely old house so familiar to us in pictures, the sweeping majesty of the lawns to the Potomac, the beautiful gardens, the restful spot of the tombs, the atmosphere of the place is one of such beauty that one admires Washington more for his appreciation of beautiful things than his statesmanship. The trip out and. back was made in motor coaches where one became acquainted with some of the de- egates from other cities. Wednesday afternoon, President Hoover received the members of the D. A. R.. in the White House. A drizzly rain did not.dampen the ardor of some ^thousand women.

Mr. and Mrs. Milton Kain were arrested at the county fair last week end charged with drunkenness. Kaln was fined $25.00 and costs by Justice A. Hutchison and Mrs. Kain was discharged. Kaln is a blacksmith here. >f the girls were completely submerged. The auditorium Is surrounded with spacious corridors, in which were the information desks, press desks and others. The old building is taken up with the various offices of the organ- nation and state rooms. Each state has a room, as you know, which they can arrange as they see fit. The states are furnishing the rooms with old furniture attempting to keep everything in colonial style. The furnishings of the entire place are a pleasure. So different from the stiff ordinary furniture. There are beautiful antiques everywhere that have been donated by different members. They have attempted to furnish every room to conform with the early American ideas The colonial kitchen is the only room not represented and two states have promised to do it. Library is Papular. The library is one of the places tha receives the most visitors. A reall; wonderful collection of genealogica books, state histories, county histor ies. It is a very busy place and a ver restful place. The tables and chair are very lovely. Duncan Phyfe table; and chair upholstered in blue leathe: with the D. A. R. insignia. Each was allowed three minutes ard only three minutes. The results were amusing but not very satisfactory. Each regent tried to get so much into the three minutes that it was a race for time. The scene was beautluful. however. The stage was gorgeous in ferns and flowers and as each regent spoke, her page stood behind her with her flowers. Tells of Russbttt Life. Thursday evening, we iieard a very long but very interesting program. The first speaker was Princess Cantacuzene, granddaughter of U. 8. Grant, who married a Russian nobleman and went to. Russia as a bride. Her account of the court, life before the revolution and her description 'Si her experiences' of Bolshevism waa very vivid. She fe a. beautiful woman and spoke in such an informal confidential manner, her audience were capM- vated with her. She told u» that tree soviet Is not really for the Russian people as a whole. The pea»ant« are 1 suffering more than they did before. The Russian people are grateful to America for not recognizing the soviet. The Russian question was also discussed by the Rev, Dr. Edmund A.

I cannot believe that all of the D. A. R.'s are as militaristic as the resolutions might sound.

There is enough material to supply women for the coming year. Committee on national defense— Mrs. Walker corrected the oft-repeated charge that the. cost of defense amounts to more than elghtyr per cent of federal expenditure.' She' claimed that only five and a fraction cents out of "every tax 'dollar go for national defense.

It Is so much nicer to give definite things, than to donate money that is to go into a fund. I believe people take more pride in pointing out a lovely chair and laying our chapter gave that than to tay. our chapter gave so much monov towcid this building. The sessions were trenecl with a ceremony that is hard to surpass for beauty. The fanfare of trumpets, the pages, in white entering to the march of the United States Army band, each with the state flag and forming an aisle for the president general with her two personal pages with huge bouquets of flowers, then all the speakers following. It Is truly impressive. Mrs. Hobart sounded tho keynote of the congress with her opening talk with the words, America needs Americans. She stressed the idea that women like to be considered advanced thinkers and their credulity is being imposed upon by the organized leaders oi communism. She feels that the organized propaganda of the sovle government should be recognized and dealt with. In other words, that we should not let our advanced thinking embrace wrong ideas. The constitution, to which the new hall has been dedicated should be Idolized and we Bhould abide by all It stands for. Hoover Attended Meeting. Preiildent Hoover conferred a grea' honor on the society the evening of the first day of the congress by attending the entire evening session. His usual custom, of course, is to appear only for the time of his address. Everyone was very much disappointed that Mrs. Hoover was confined to the White House with a very oad cold and p. strained back and so was unable to attend. The president had desired to see the colorful entrance of the pages and BO was there even before the session started. I Imagine a great many of you heard very well informed man. He had Just made an Intensive study of the conditions in Russia and he confirmed all the princess had said. He also went into great detail as to the- organized efforts on the part of ther soviet to spread their doctrine. World power is their desire, according to Ur. Walsh, regardless of how it must come about. Former Ambassador Child then talked on "Unshackled America-." This talk was looked upon by some as an answer to President Hoover's speech. Very politely he was against the world court. America to be unshacMed must be free from foreign entanglements. Most of the afternoon and morning meetings were taken up with reports of the various national committees and the passing of resolutions. Important Resolutions; The most important resolutions passed were: For adequate national defense. A mllltarv and naval establishment adequate to defend our country. Against foreign entanglements. This was considered a direct slap to President Hoover's speech by some newspapers. Establishment of April 3 as American Creed Day. Opposition to recognition of soviet declaring the avowed purpose of the soviet was the destruction of this and all other forms of government. Requirement of a teachers' oath of allegiance which would offset the work of reds in schools. Tightening the restrictions of immigration. , . Indorsement of the Otar Spangled Banner. I was much interested in noting the differences of opinion as to the resolutions. Of course, the resolutions are formulated before they are presented to the congress. Considering the size of *h« hall it was impossible for a member to be heard from the floor. The resolutions were passed with such a hurry that there real'.y was no time for dissent. I heard and talked with so fortunate. I could not Twas disappointed'that attentf the Friday and Saturday sessions, and most of my sightseeing had been postponed until Saturday and Sundby, but with no place to stay, what' could one da but go home.
