The following were guests from 'Oakland: Mr. and Mrs. F. T. Osgood, Carlton and Miss Consuello Osgood, L. B. and Marian Avery, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Balliger, Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Syll, Dr. and Mrs. L. E.

No more, no less. there was that trip to India, that coincided exactly with the visit of the Crown Prince." "Just coincidence," says the Kanta Barbaran, who left a few days ago for Monteclto with her mother. 1 The CommunifyTheater at Santa Barbara, that was largely the result of Mrs Graham's interest if drama- literary producing and interpretative will be in fuU swing Xor the -height of the season. Terhaps Mrs. Graham may be again on the boards. Surely no handsomer woman could ornament it with her person. "But does she act?" you say. I know not. Only I do know that she can write. I also know of a time she did nrlte. It was a play, and from all accounts, it was a good play. She hurried oft, after its reading by the family circle, to consult a certain well-known producer. "Bad. Nothing to it," he sniffed, but kept the manuscript for another reading. so the etory goes, the producer a few years after, needed just men a play. So he dug up the manuscript, rewrote the scenes that didn't ring the bell, and put forth the play, characters and all, as she had written it, with the most flimsy sort of disguise. A woman of high spirit, she saw her attorney, who advised her of her rights and sought to sue the Maker of Actresses. But when Mr. Graham "hand-seme Billy Graham" heard of the proposed suit he put his foot. aH of It, down upon the plan. "Let tne play go; what's a play, to go to -court over?" And so the matter was dropped and tho details forgotten. But so early an aptitude toward ''mental and spiritual exercise in art reveals her hungering to get back to the edge of the blue water at St. Barbara's to' play. r- -0 0 The Passion Play opens July in its own theater at Cahuenga Tass. A splendid cast, has been and the seaon will undoubtedly be more successful than either of the earlier ones. The Mission Play at San GabTiel, by the way, is breaking all records. It is now in. its twenty-sevefith weekr and 'will not close until the first of August. A long run is also being scored by a play of another character, "Abie's Irish Rose," by Anna Nichols, at Morosco's. Eighteen weeks of packecj houses would, seem to "argue that this tparklhrg comedy ha the" full approval ofthe public. Another play by a local writer, opening this week, is "In "Walked Jimmy," by Minnie Jaffa, a member of the Southern California Women's Press Club. It is said to be clever, and the Initial perform-unces have been splendidly received, pat-tor of the First Methodist Church of Oakland, was married on Thursday evening to Miss Hannah M. Ball, supervisor in home economics in the Los Angeles schools. The service was read by the Reverend Dr. Green, an old friend of the bridegroom.

July 19th is the date chosen, the wedding to take place at the home of the Joseph Brant Bannings.

The country cluba always set part of the day aside for the children, and the displays of fireworks are always planned with the little people in mind. At the Los Angeles Country Club the attendance this year was larger than fver; veranda teas and an informal dance filled the afternoon hours, and at dusk the fireworks drew the de lighted attention of hundreds of children and quite as many discriminating elders.
