TTTASHINGTON is growing to
yy be a resourceful city so far
as its suburbs are concerned.
Where 20 years ago there
were but two country clubs, there are
now at least nine, with innumerable
tea houses, coffee houses and way
side inns, most of them due to the
great automobile .traffic. The roads
i , . ur..i.: .
and the localities are so filled with
historic interest that they arc mag
netic attractions, especially 'for the
great army of newcomers here doing
war work. The haunts of George
Washington, George Mason, Dolly
Madison and her several refuges dur
ing the troublous times of her life,
and even the home of Thomas Jef
ferson many miles down in Virginia,
4 are the meccas towards which great
numbers of week-end tourists make
their way. The unprecedented cool
ness of the past fortnight has en
couraged all this. The quaint old
homestead of the Father of his Coun
try is dedicated to the nation in its
original simplicity. The home of
George Mason, uunston nan, now
owned and occupied as their all-the-vear-around-home,
by Mr. and Mrs.
Louis Hertle, formerly of Chicago.
Joseph Leiter Home.
, Quite in contrast to this adorable
home of primitive simplicity is the
glass house of Joseph Leiter, built on
a lovely point on the Virginia side of
the upper Potomac; just at Great
Falls. Many miles of lovely culti
vated ground surrounds the mansion,
which is fitted with every known lux
ury inside and out, with a wide ver
anda all around it, all enclosed in
glass from early fall to early sum
mer, and in wire the rest of the year.
It is an ideal place of modern luxury,
especially . for the kiddies, four of
them in the Leiter family, and many
in the families of their friends, who
visit them frequently. And again in
contrast to Mt. Vernon and Gunston
Hall is the real splendor of the Mc
Lean' place "Friendship," which al
though surrounded by many acres of
garden and woodland, all laid out by
a landscape gardener, is almost with
in the city.
- The Nebraska people in Washing
ton have had a busy week. Senator
and Mrs. Gilbert M. Hitchcock had
a beautiful dinner party Tuesday eve
ning in, honor of the British ambas
sador and the countess of Reading.
There, were 20 guests asked to meet
them and dinner was served at the
Chevy Chase club, which is particu
larly beautiful this year.
What Nebraskans Are Doing.
The home of Senator and Mrs.
George W. Norn's of McCook, Neb.,
is almost turned into a war workers
headquarters. In addition to the knit
ting class of the Nebraska Women's
Washington club, .which meets in
their Cleveland Park home every
Monday night, and various commit
tee meetines other nights, there was
organized last Tuesday night a first
aid class in of their immediate neigh
borhood. Miss Hazel Norris was
elected president, Miss Mary ttoldcn
secretary and treasurer. Miss Reavis,
daughter of Representative and Mrs.
C. Frank Reavis of Falls City, Neb.,
is one of the active founders. They
will meet every Tuesday night in the
- -Representative and Mrs. A. C.
Shallenberger of Alma, Neb., were
attendants at the wedding of Mrs.
Shallenberger's niece, Miss Lillian
Louise Bettinger, and Mr. Lawrence
Radford, which took place Monday
morning of this week. The cere
mony: was performed by Rev. Earlc
Wilfley in one of the pretty parlors
of the Shoreham hotel in the presence
of only the members of the families,
and was followed by a breakfast there.
Miss Grace Shallenberger and Miss
Dorothy Shallenberger and several
'other!-relatives of the bride and
bridegroom were present. Mr. Rad
ford and his bride left for a short
wedding trip and will be at home a
little later on at the Livingston in
this city. The bridegroom is now
attached to the ordnance bureau of
the War department. The bride is a
Wisconsin girl and was supervisor
of schools there for 10 years or so,
and then went to Jacksonville, Fla.,
in the same capacity. Representative
and Mrs. Shallenberger entertained
a small company at dinner Tuesday
evening at Congress hall for Gover
nor Neville of Nebraska, who was
spending a few days in the city. Ar
thur Mullen, national committeeman
of Nebraska, and his son, of Omaha,
were among the guests.
The Misses Shallenberger had an
interesting and unique trip early in
the week. They drove, up the rive
road to Chain bridge in a party,
where they left their automobile and
walked up the tow path of the canal,
between the river and the canal, to
Great Falls, making the trip of 11
miles in two hours and 45 minutes.
This is one of the most picturesque
,trips imaginable, the scenery being
beautiful to a degree and Great Falls
one of the most picturesque spots in
this country. '

When I Get Homo
When the war la o'er and I get home,
I'm coin' to settle down.
No more around this earth to roam;
I'll stick to the old home town,
Back to the burg that's half asleep
I'll drag my weary frame;
Where the streets are tilled with hogs and
And I'll live the quiet gams.
I'll forget about squads "east" and "west,"
And drilling from dawn to dark.
My body'll get a needed rest
In some cool and shaded park.
Never again will that old gun
Bear on my shoulder, sore;
For living will be one round of fun
For me, when the scrap is o'er.
And I'll cast about In lovers' woods
For a maiden, fair to see.
One who has lots of worldly goods
And willing to do K. P.
I'll doll all up In clothes, brand new,
And find a nice soft seat.
Morning and night I'll sleep right through
Both reveille and retreat.
Then the world will be one Paradise,
When I come from "over there.
The old home town will sure look nice
With Its welcome everywhere.
Three or four medals I'll display
Across my manly chest,
So the folks will know I didn't play,
But gave them my level best.
