THE ONLY regret con
nectea witn tne com
plimentary Washing
ton's Birthday Cotillion
tendered by the Hotel
Carolina was that the
music hall wasn't "the
hippodrome." Over
sixty couples participa-
ed in the dancing and as for the on
lookers, they were numberless in spite of
the definite announcement of the com
mittee that the limited capacity of the
hall made it impossible to provide for
them, f "Didn't vou read the invita
tion?" asked one of the committee in
response to request for seats which there
were not. 1" Yes, and that is just why
I wanted to come ! " f And here you
have it; the continual yearning of a
human race for the unattainable ! f The
"crush," however, was but of brief dura
tion, for those who came early gave way
to others in waiting and the program
throughout was replete with its novelty.

In the opening march led by Mr. and
Mrs. Robert E. Stone of Boston, the si'k
American flags carried by the dnncers
gave bright color and suggested the
character of the day, and the same idea
was carried out in the favors which in
cluded clusters of cherries, hatchet fans,
three cornered tri-colored chapeaux,
beribboned bonnets and the cardbojid
hatchets which indicated the seats of the
dancers. An innovation of the evening
was the introduction of the old time
Virginia reel, schottische and Portland
fancy; with the turkey trot of 1912
listed as the C4ke walk up to date and
suit yourself bunny. The potato and
egg racs were merry scrambler, Paul
Jones circles created uo end of fun and
the selection of partners in the tlig
figure by the bells on her fingers and
rings on her toes as popu'ar as ever.
