ASTKll Is a decidedly im
portant uccnalun hi offi
claldotn nt our imtlonnl
capital monnlng by offi
claldotn tluit mora or lens
charmed circle made up
of all officials, from the
President down, together
with the members of
their families and Includ
ing, of course, tho foreign
dignitaries who reside at
our seat of government
aB Uncle Sam's ofllclal
guests. It Is not only Kaster Sunday
that Is an event in the calendar of
officialdom, but likewise Kaster Mon
day (which Is a great day In Wash
ington) and the wholo Kaster week.
However, this whole Interval may, in
effect, be considered as Kaster.
From tho standpoint of officialdom
the first significance of Kaster is tho
religious one. For, bo It known, mos:.
of our officials that is, our national
officials nro very conscientious
church goers, Whether they aie offi
cials because they are church goers, or wheth
er they are church goers because they aro
Federal officials may be a mooted question,
but tho fact remains that the average public
servant during his Incumbency of office in
the i'lty on the Potomac is faithful In attend
ance at divine worship. And even the excep
tions who aro "backsliders" at other seasons
of tho year strain a point to be "among thoso
present" on tho Joyous Kaster morn.
The second significance of Kaster In official
dom Is as a day of family reunions, second
only to Christmas In the cngerness with which
It Is anticipated. Tho opportunity for such
reunions arises from tho fact that a large pro
portion of tho children of our public men at
tend public or private schools elsewhere than
In Washington, even though their parents may
maintain a home at the capital. Sometimes it
Is a matter of sentiment that makes an official
desirous of having his children educated in
his old homo town, and In the case of tho
young men and young women there are tho
college magnets Vnssar and Wellesloy nnd
tho rest for the girls, and Yale, Harvard, Cor
nell and others for tho boys.
It thus happens that there Is n small nrmy
of sons and daughters to como homo to the
habitations of officialdom for tho "Kaster vaca- j
tlon," and usually they bring with them as
many school chums as parents can nrrango to
entertain, for Washington at Knster is
proverbially one of the most fascinating places In
America and offors no end of opportunities for
good times for young people. During tho Taft
administration the Whlto House has taken espe
cial cognlznnco of this Kaster homecoming cus
tom, for tho Junior Tafts have been among thoso
exiles who have made tho Easter pilgrimage,
bringing with them school friends. Accordingly
Mrs. Taft has always made It a point to arrange
a round of social festivities, Including an Kaster
week danco for not only the "house party" nt tho
Presidential Mansion, but the wholo body of Eas
ter reunloncrs in officialdom.
A third significance that attaches to Kaster In
officialdom Is Its function ns tho Innugural of tho
spring social Mason. In tho old days "tho sea
eon" In Washington mennt from tho first day of
January to tho beginning of Lent. Then as
Undo Snm became more of a world power and
his capital reflected his now Importance there wn3
added each year tho "little season" which ex
tended from tho convening of Congress In Decem
ber until tho New Yenr Latterly thoro has been
yet nnother development and wo havo tho spring
Reason (In many respects tho most enjoyable of
all) which opens on Kaster and extends until
wnrm weather sets In. During Lent, poclnl activ
ity is virtually suspended, for even tho hostesses
who nro not so devout ns to have heed for the
religious significance of tho forty dnys welcome
tho Interval ns a "rest period." Easter, therefore
finds tho leaders of officialdom restored in spirit
and ready for a new round of activity.
Hut, as has beon said, on Kaster morning all
officialdom goes to church and for tho going finds
plenty of spectators, Inasmuch as Washington Is
always thronged with tourlstB at Kaster, and such
of them nB aro disappointed In the effort to gain
admission to the crowded churches throng tho
approaches to view tho passing show. The larg
est throngs aro usually to bo found In tho neigh
borhood of tho Unitarian church, of which Presi
dent Taft In a mombcr, although In simple truth It
must be admitted that President Taft is tho only
attraction hero, for not many other public men of
prominence happen to worship at tho same
church as tho President. Hut It Is tho President
that tho Easter throng wnnts to see and they
block the sidewalks about tho church until after
his big motor car has whirled up to tho curb
and tho President has disappeared Into the
church. After tho servlco there Is somewhat of
a repetition of the Bcene, but the crowd is not so
largo, becntJBO It is otlquotto for tho President to
bo allowed to mako his exit ere tho rest of tho
congregation leave their seats and ho Is well on
his way to tho Whlto House ero most of tho peo
ple omergo from tho church.
Many spectators who aro more Interested In
observing how officials as a class observe Easter
than thoy are in tho personality of tho President
