Society Assumes Brighter Aspect
With the Approach of Ak-Sar-Ben
SEPTEMBER, precursor of the
social season, is dotted with
more social events than has
preceded it the summer long:
Despite the departure of our boys to
training camps, society is having its
last fling at country clubs before their
closing dinner-dances the last Satur
day evening of the month. Luncheons
and dinners, chiefly for visitors and
girls of the school set soon to de
part for eastern institutions of learn
ing, dot the social calendar and a new
afternoon of amusement, knitting par
ties when one busily plies the needle
(and as busily the tongue) for and
about one's soldier boy friends.
Weddings, too, there are in which
society is interested. Miss Helen
Scobie's marriage to Mr. Alan Mcr
Donald, Tuesday, a quiet ceremony
at the home of the bride's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Scobie; Miss Vir
ginia Weller's wedding to Mr. O.
Dean Davidson next wek, Wednes
day, at the home of her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Charles K. Weller; and the
marriage- of Miss Lenore Younpr,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J.
Young of Macedonia, la., to Mr.
Eldred Schuyler Hart, son of Mrs.
Ernest Eldred Hart of Council Bluffs,
scheduled for. September 22, are.
among the interesting ceremonies of
There is another of which Mellificia
can only hint. "She" is a well known
pianist who lives in Dundee. Her en
gagement to an out-of-town man
dates back several years, but, though
few are in the secret, the marriage is
sure to take place this fall, possibly
before the month is out. Her mar
riage will take this popular young
musiciart out of Omaha for, needless
to say, she will take up her residence
in the bridegroom's home city. It
will be a very (JUiet home wedding.
Ak-Sar-Ben season is, of course, first
in interest and already the visitors
for the big coronation ball are begin
ning to flock t'o the city. The military
idea which will be carried out in all
arrangements for the big annual ball,
in keeping with the spirit of the time,
gives promise of making the ball
room a particularly brilliant spectacle.
Mr. and Mrs. Philip Metz, whose en
gagement was announced exclusively
by The Bee last Ak-Sar-Ben week,
liave already arrived from Buffalo, but
will spend two weeks on the Metz
ranch in the western part of the state
before the ball. For this event they
will be joined by Mrs. Metz's parents,
