dancing party; the children's cotillion ut
The indications of a fortnight ago have
developed into a reality. Society Is going
to dance during the holidays, and dance
hard, too. Beginning next Thursday evening
for ten nights In succession, excepting the
two Sundays, there is a dancing pnrty for
every evening and every one of them is to
be a smart affair too. That means every
night during the holidays and at least
two after New Years. There have not been
days enough to go around thla year. fc."very
bedy seemed to want to give a dance
and because of conflicting dates and in
ability to secure the desired place, four
big affairs, dancing parties, were filven up
and by hostesses that would have made
them functions of no small consequence.
In the main, these are all for the school
folks, and It is said that the Cotillion club
is to extend its list to Include a goodly
proportion of this set, at Its Nov Year's
Aside from the dances, however, little has
been announced, though there Is talk of
at least one series of large afternoon card
parties and a reception or two. The Idea
of keeping open house New Year's day is
gaining favor and a score of young women
are planning things that can not bo dell
nltely announced until the college girls get
home to have a say in the arrangement.
The following suggestion comes from one
who helped to plan the first New Year'
reception ever held In Omaha and who
has had a prominent part in the social
life of the city ever since. Her name is
withheld by request:
To the Society Editor of The Bee: Re
garding the revival of the beautiful old cus
tom of keeping open house isf.w Years
day, your mention In last Sunday's paper
was most timely and I for one hone that
not only the young women, but all the
old families will do their share on this
dny of all days of the year when hospi-
iiuuy is appreciated. It would mean so
little: a little I irht rcfrpshmpnt-Knmn mint
and bonbons with grape Juice, a fruit punch,
ieu, conee or cnocoiaie ana a hospitable
hostess to serve it. In years nast. n hvv
of girls and young women would receive
togetner during the afternoon, and evening,
too. If there was no other demand upon
them, and the men would go about from
place to place carrying greetings. Why
can not this be done again this year? I
would suggest that all the women of the
city who expect to be at home New Year's
day send their names, addresses and the
hours during which they will receive to
the papers, to be announced In the society
columns the Sunday preceedlng New Year's.
