A SMART event of this evening
will be the costume party or
Spanish fiesta to be given at
the Portland art museum. The tab
leaux and special dances with the
art students In colorful and artistic
costumes will be unique attractions.
Society always attends the art mu
seum affairs and the present function
doubtless will be quite a brilliant fes
tivity. Another event of note for tonight
will be the Irvington club dance, for
which tickets have been going at re
markably good prices. There is no
limit placed on the amount one may
pay and so there is a keen rivalry
among the committee members to see
who can make the biggest success as
ticket sellers. As a resit a goodly
sum will be added to the necessary
club fund. The committee has
planned the details " quite carefully
and it is safe to say that the party
will be a success.
Society will be well represented at
the Dent Mowrey recital to be given
Tuesday evening at the Multnomah
hotel. Friends will honor Mr. Mow
rey, who Is planning to leave later
in the summer for New York. He
