My dear Jane: Last year the White House social program seemed to be rated—first one thing and then another interferred. but this year everything has gone "according to Hoyle,' But President Hoover has-.- turned many of the old White House customs iopsy-turvy and introduced new ones in their stead during his first : ywui as United States president White House entertainments along with, other customs have been remould- id by our president. It has always been the custom to hold only four receptions at the White House each year •with the exception of the public one New Year's day, but President Hoover decided upon eight receptions. Sep- irste dates were set for receiving mem- >ers of the senate and the house, where as formerly a joint reception was held. Last year the reception to the house never came off, being cancelled at the tme of the illness and death of Chief 'ustice Taft. This year the house reception went off with a bang and be- ng rather small, only about 1200 guests attending, it was much more pleasant as nearly everybody knew everybody Ise. March of Ceremony. We always try to arrive early at the White House at this reception for watching the president and first lady and the vice-president and second lady jnd the cabinet members with their wives in their march'of ceremony down the stairs is the most interesting part if the evening to me. Promptly at nine >'lcock the strains of the familiar "Hail tie Chief announce the descent from the sacred "upstairs" of the president nd his official family. House aides, aval and military lead this procession own the flower lined steps (great lusters of scarlet carnations this time) and into the blue room where the guests are received. Mrs. Hoover looked unusually well thought. Her gown of heavy eggshell satin was made with a short train and with a bertha #bf ttjpsagbe mate- lal, the two ow into the back. She carried long hite gloves and a small hand bag of ggshell satin beaded in gold. Mrs. Jann (Dolly) was ill with the flu so Jlrs. Hurley, wife of the secretary of ar, came down the grand stairs on ice-President Curtis' arm. Secretary Hurley was out of town. Many of the ladies wore sparkling jewels and color- ul gowns. Several of them carried ans. Pans "have come to life" again, ane. Great colored feather fans and Iso the dainty carved Ivory fans like lose ot our grandmothers and great grandmothers. No Refreshments. We thought perhaps that the Hoov- rs would revive the old custom of serving refreshments at these recep- ions. Before the war they were al- r ays served but Wilson set the pace f economy by cutting the refreshments down to mere ice water and that as been the custom ever since and I imagine it will always be so in the uture. Among the guests at the reception •ere Representative and Mrs. De Priest. They arrived early, almost as •arty as we did, and after greeting the Resident and Mrs. Hoover entered the ast room and seated themselves upon hat have beesi termed the "Monroe hairs." Then they were greeted by speaker Longworth. Mr. Longworth -ailed Mr. De Priest by his first name, Oscar." After that several people went up to them and spoke to them, Mrs. Lamont, wife of the secretary of commerce among them. Mrs. De Priest, wife of the colored representative, was dressed in beige lace. She wore long white gloves and silver slippers. ..... ;"/•I thought that the president looked a. bit tired, but why shoudn't' he .With all the wrangling going on Jp ! the senate? Of course it is an honor'to be the president of the United States—a great honor, but a real sacrifice, too. I surely would want to have all my fun before hand. It must be terribly tiresome to be bound to a routine BO monotonous as the president must have. The president spends more time in his office than the usual business Permanent Waves Does your halrdresger understand the theory of permanent waving? Many just EfU«J3 at it or do certain things because they have heard others say they do, not knowing why ctf when, to apply it. We take much pride In announcing that we have a new Eugene- Continental two-sectional heater type machine, the very best that money can buy and Mrs. Dailey has had six years of experience ulv- int{ Eugene Waves not Just six years of experience, changing from one inferior machine to another, guessing at this, that and the other thing:, gambling with her future, but six years of actual experience in Kugene Waving. Along with this she has a Eugene Diploma, signed by Eugene Suter of Paris and lias had the best training possible in permanent waving. If you ?«t a Genuine Eocene Wave la Algona the only place yon can get it is In a. Marigold Hhop. If you want a Croquignole wave, let Mrs. Pailey give you a Realistic.

The only time he is alone is at night in his bed chamber. When he leaves it in the morning he is the president>-not an individual. He is surrounded all the time by secret service men and secretaries and visitors. The White House grounds are constantly guarded by uniformed police. The president is required to exercise every day. His special physician sees that he does whether he so wills or not. The Hoovers have changed things about a bit in the White House. Really, more than a bit Every new president and his wife change things about to suit their own ideas of fitness but the first lady of these days is lucky that she does not have to concern herself with fires and primitive necessities as did the wife of John Adams. The lovely east room was then used as a drying room for her laundry. Mrs. FUlmoTe installed the first bath tub in 1831. There is now a bath room for each room. Charming Room. President and Mrs. Hoover have made more changes in the green room than In any of the other rooms. It is now a reauy charming room. The bamboo and brocade furniture has been removed and post-revolutionary chairs and settees have taken their place. In this room is a lovely old white marble mantel which once upon a time was one of a pair in the state dining room. The rest of the furniture has been adapted to this mantel. The massive Japanese vases that have bteen there for three generations are gone and also the woodwork fire screen, made by Qnpress Elizabeth of Austria, which she presented through the minister of Austro-Hungary, to President Arthur n 1883. These have been placed in a room given over to the old treasured jifts from foreign countries. The heavy chandelier has been changed to one of crystal which harmonizes with the wall brackets. Portraits of past occupants of the White House have been thinned out and those used blend into the color scheme of the different rooms in an artistic way. In the "shuffling" of these portraits the picture of Calvin Coolidge, which formerly occupied a conspicuous position in the state din- ng room was moved to the hallway. In ts place the famous White porttrait of Abraham Lincoln, which formerly decorated a dark spot in the long corridor has been hung. The official painting of Woodrow Wilson has been moved to a space just at the entrance of he state Dining room. In the long corridor hangs a life sized portrait of James A. Garfield, and on the stand beneath it there always is a vase of red carnations, his favorite flower, con- tantly worn on the lapel of his coat while he was a member of the house and all through his days in the White House. In the state dining room a wonderfully fine oil painting showing ialifornia mountain scenery and an abode, or concrete house hangs over he mantel. During the Roosevelt administration a rare old Flemish tapes- Ty hung there. ^ The President's Study. The full length paintings of George and Martha Washington, which had lung in the lower corridor are now langlng in the historic east room. Mrs. Hoover who has grouped the White House belongings according to i the east room, as most tSrwaSMngton portraits. Here, too, have been placed plenty of omfortable chairs. They take the lace of the hard Roman benches and re of the Louis XV type—gold chairs nd upholstered in blue silk damask. tie frames are richly hand carved. I believe I wrote you a bit about lie president's study on the second ,oor in my last letter but I want to ell you something more about it. It is at the end of the long hall which •ans the full length of the White House nd which is divided into three colo- ilal arches. President Hoover who has always seen a great admirer of Lincoln de- ided to use this old Lincoln study for its own. It had been used as a bed chamber for years. A plate on the marble mantel says that slaves were reed in that room. President Hoover after days of hunting around found hree old dilpaldated Lincoln chairs in he basement and attic and had them efinlshed and upholstered. They now itand in the Lincoln study. Above the mantel hangs a steel engraving representing the moment when 'resident Lincoln read his Emanclpa- tion Proclamation to his cabinet. This engraving has been owned by the president for many years. After the picture was hung it was noticed by some member of the household that he picture represented that very room and that the original which now hangs on the wall of the east staircase of the louse wing of the capitol and which is fourteen feet long and nine feet high must have been painted in this room. These Old Lincoln chairs are exactly ike those in this steel engraving. They have the curved legs, the upholstered seats and the bannister up the back. The fire place in the background of ;he engraving is the same as the fire place in the study even to the beading on the trim. So the engraving with its :areful and authentic record of detail, is standing as a model for an attempt to restore the study to something of its furnishings and appearance in ,he Lincoln day. Seek Arm Chair. The arm chair that Lincoln sits in cannot be found. Mrs. Lincoln gave way her belongings very freely as souvenirs. It perhaps was given away and then again it might have been sold it an auction as old furniture was In ;hosp days. There is a table in the White House ;hat until Hoover's administration had been shown as that on which the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. A table in a Connecticut museum made a likewise'claim. Now it is a puzzle which table was really used. The Congressional club has held two receptions so far. One for the President and Mrs. Hoover and the other for Vice-President Curtis and -his hostess, Dolly Gann. . Next week we entertain for the Speaker and Mrs. Longworth. Combining a short session of congress wltr an early Lent has resulted in a most crammed social calendar. Our breakfast for Mrs. Hoover will be the las! of the Congressional club's affairs. 3 hope to find time to write you aboul this always interesting affair, Affectionately, Myrtle O. Dickinson.
