Work of Their Country Folk Will Be Sold in Cathedral Next Month


Members of the Ladies’ Society of the Russian Cathedral have chosen April 2, 3 and 4 for their bazaar and sale in the lower hall of the cathedral. The sale for those three days will be only part of the general entertainment and good time arranged by the women under the leadership of their president, Mrs. A. Constantine.

Laces made by Russian peasants, embroidery and drawn work, table linens and a score of attractive things for the house and for the purchaser will be displayed to the public. In other years the women have held similar sales, and their "stock" includes lace work and bits of needle work which are not to be found often in this country.

During the evenings there will be a programme of special promise for the guests. There will be Greek and Russian songs by Mrs. Robert Whitcomb and Mrs. Richard Rees, and piano numbers by Miss Rose Somer, among other selections.

In the afternoons members of the society are planning to serve Russian tea. That part of the affair will be under the direction of Mrs. Daroshka and Mrs. Archomovich. The sales will be directed by Mesdames Metropolsky, Obradovtch, Churich, Misses Olga and Anne Jancovich, Miss Melena Mitrovich.

As reception committee for the three afternoons and evenings Mrs. A. Constantine, Mrs. V. Alexandrof and Mrs. Vanvales will serve.

The young women who will assist in the tea service and elsewhere, will wear the costumes of the Russian and Greek women.
