Special: The Fenton Tigers lost their second round game at the state sectional tournament at Buffalo Center. The Fenton Tigers defeated Wesley in the first round of the tournament by the score of 10 to 12. This was a slow and poorly played game. The Fenton team missed many set ups. Wesley took the lead and held a 5 to 1 advantage during the first half. The Fenton team seemed as though it was tired and did not have the We it showed in the county tournament. The Wesley team continued to lead until the third quarter, the score being 8 to 10. During the last quarter Krause succeeded in making two field goals to give Fenton the My Dear Jane: I/avlng ha'I a season filled with teas receptions, balls and what not, society has now turned intellectual and Is going to enjoy concerts and lectures during Lent.

The Fenton Tigers continued to play hi the slump and therefore lost the second round game to Whittemore which was due mostly to the inability of Fenton to make their close in shots. The Fenton team missed enough shots to win any game. During the second quarter Heller of Whittemore sunk four shots from about center to give Whittemore an eight point lead which proved to be much for Fenton to overcome. too Official Publication.

Algona, Iowa, Sweeten every Jay with Candy the other day. The breakfast which is really a luncheon, was held in the big ballroom of the Wlllard hotel and was attended by every member of the club—someone from every state in the union. Daffodils and sweet peas combined with acacia adorned the tables. The acacia had been sent from California in honor of this special event. Because Mrs. Hoover has a taste for classic music, the program was composed of the music of old masters and it was given by a young Russian pianist. Mrs. Hoover in Black Velvet. Mrs. Hoover wore a very becoming black velvet tailored suit. The blouse was of cream-colored silk and had a pleated wide collar which was worn outside of the velvet, jacket Her hat was a combination of black velvet and black straw . She was escorted to the long special guest table by Mrs. Dale, wife of the senator from Vermont and our outgoing president of the club, Mrs. Gann, in a fall the day before, wrenched her ankle rather badly, but she never misses this particular event, so in she came, cane and all, limping and hanging on to the arm of our Mrs. Ramseyer, who is finishing her term as first vice president of the Congressiom! club. "Dolly" wore a flowered crepe dress and a black lace hat. Alice Longworth, who up to the Hoover administration has always attended the club's annual breakfast for the first lady of the land, was missing as she was last year. She and "Dolly" have never yet agreed on the seating question. During the breakfist the Marine band dressed in red coats and black and red stripe trousers played and several flashlights were taken of Mrs. Hoover and the rest of us. I am not going ot give you the entire menu but two of the dishes were a little unusual. You might try them some time, Jane, at one of your luncheons. The clear bouillion had been colored red with vegetable coloring. It did not change the taste of the soup and made it very attractive Then with the baked squab was served a pie crust tart filled with creamed new asparagus. The programs, which we always treasurfe, were unusually handsome this year, an ivory color and on the front an engraving of the club and on the back the insignia of the club. Between the covers was a beautifully autographed portrait of Mrs. Hoover. After the program of music, Mrs. Hoover took us all by surprise by giving us a short "thank you" talk. She had been promised that she would not have to do anything but smile and chat with her table neighbors, so we were Indeed surprised when she rose and said that because she had bee.i promised that she need not talk, she suddenly decided she wanted to do so. She expressed the wish that she were thirty different persons, that she might sit at each of the tables and make the personal acquaintance of every lady there. For Long-worths. Our reception for the Longworths at the club house was the last of the season. It was an exceptionally interesting one as for some unknown reason the Longworths came early and stayed late and were Jovial and gay all evening. Perhaps it was because It had been a day of triumph f>>r "Nick," as the men call him. His pet hoppy, the bonus bill, passed the house that afternoon. (It seems it is going to be vetoed by the president, however.) "Alice" was gowned that evening in a flaming dress of red taffeta heavily embroidered in huge gold flowers. She wore an antique heavy gold chain about her neck and carried a Spanish shawl of red embroidered in the same shade. Alice never uses rouge or lipstick and is very pale. The feud between "Alice" and "Dolly" Is not ended. It never will be as long as Dolly Gann Is given the same rank (and she is) as a wife of the vice president of the United States. They do greet each other, but that is all. Because they are cordial in their greetings to one another does not settle the "sit or not to sit" question. The battle ax is not buried. Since the question arose Mrs. Longworth and Mrs. Gann have never attended a dinner or luncheon at the same time until the Woman's National Press club worked out a seating problem BO nobly last year at one of their dinner and stunt parties. Clever Method. This club holds this affair each year and having been very desirous of hav- ng both Dolly Gann and Alice Longworth among their guests they spent days and weeks trying to solve the problem of seating them so they both would be satisfied. A way to keep harmony between the two women was finally worked out. Both guests "rating" first place, it was decided to use a triangular table —an equilateral triangle, with three sides equal to each other. The chairman or hostess of the club was to eit at this table with Dolly and Alice. But after having been convinced that she would share honors equally with "Dolly," "Alice" ran oft the last minute to be with her friend, Ruth McCormick, at the counting of the ballots in the Illinois primary. This year both of the ladles were again invited and both accepted. Everything was lovely as each one had the seat of honor. The chairman sat within the curve of a crescent-shaped table facing four of the most distinguished guests: Mrs. Stlmson, Mrs. Hughes, "Dolly" and "Alice". No men are .ever present at these stunt dinners. Even the orchestra is composed entirely of women. Political and social Washington are satirized In song and skit and the guests of honor are usually the inspiration for repartee and humorous incidents. "Dolly" and "Alice" make "good copy." They enjoy the witty shots at themselves, too. In the skit called "The Mad Tea Party," "Alice," armed with a three- foot clgaret holder and a huge bag filled with poker chips, was featured. Also hi this skit, "Alice," seating herself at at the head of the table says, "Where I sit is always the head of the table." To Mrs. Gann was dedicated a song to the tune of "My Country Tis of Thee," which began: "My brother, 'tis for thee, Since thou hast only me, I scheme and plan. Right where the host may be, At every jambouree, I reign, officially, I, Dolly Gann." Help Unempolyed. Along with our social doings we have found time to aid the unemployed situation by sewing for these people. Under the direction of the Red Cross we have turned out piles of children's clothes, knitted sweaters and socks. These have been distributed to families through the agency of the Red Cross. The members of the Congressional club met each Friday morning at the clubhouse and those who could not knit, sewed on the little dresses, etc. Mrs. Gann, as busy as she was with her many official duties, found a few hours each week in which she with a few of her friends sewed and knitted in her apartment at the Mayflower hotel. In fact I believe Mrs. Gann started this Red Cross work before the Congressional club did. "They" say that Dolly Gann knitted more than 380 pairs of socks during the World War. There are many things I have yet to tell you, Jane, but I have other things to Do now, among them help husband on his book, 'Dickinson Genealogy." I hope I may have a visit with this summer back hi Iowa but if I do not my letters will follow you again next winter. Having husband in the senate will be a new experience for me and there will be many new things to write you about, I am sure. Affectionately, Myrtle C.
