. (By "Anstice")

WITH the arrival ot His Excellency

the Governor-General of Austra- lia (Lord Gowrie) and Lady Gowrie this weelc, together with the ships of His Majesty's Australian Squadrou and the visiting warships of the French, Italian, Netherlands, and Uni- ted States fleets, for the Centenary Regatta, Hobart will be en fete for the next few weeks. Elaborate plans are being made for entertainments of all description, and the coming week pro- mises to he one of the gayest yet ex- perienced. If the general public is as enthusiastic as the many voluntary helpers in the interests of the Ragatta, and provided the weather is season- able, then nothing can prevent this Centenary event of the Royal Hobart Regatta Association and the numerous functions associatpd with it, from he

ing a memorable success. At several ot the functions there will' be a pre- sentation of debutantes, who will have something .to look back ,on with life- long interest.-.'' To celebrate the cen- tenary of the'Peninsular arid Oriental Steanic Nayigation Company, and to mark tile .occasion of the Regatta Cen- tenary, a late afternoon reception will be held on board R.M.S. Stratheden, on Friday. Their Excellencies;Lord and Lady Gowrie, His Excellency the Gov- ernor (Sir Ernest' Clark) and Lady Clark, and commanding officers o£ H.M.A. Fleet, and visiting warships, will attend the Air Force Ball at the City Hall on Saturday night. A motor

picnic has 'been arranged for Sunday," when, pilleéis from the visiting ships will lie entertained by younger, mem- bers ot'tlie'Victoria League. There will be .an official: dinner at Govern- ment House on Monday night, and on the same night the Mairons' Ball will take place at the Continental. Tues- day, of course, will be the principal Regatta day. To meet Her Excellency Lady Gowrie, the Lady Mayoress (Mrs. J. J.

ment House will also be Included in the social programme. It is under- stood that the crowded nature ot last year's Ball held at Government House has prompted the restriction of invi- tations to the function to be held on the night of March 4. The procedure adopted on this occasion is that not more than one or two members ot any one family will receive invitations. On Friday week a committee dance will take place at the Continental, and an- other motor picnic for officers of the Australian Squadron has been planned for the following Sunday. These are just some of the forthcoming festivi- ties, for, in addition, there are various private dances listed, and others being planned. Many hostesses who are bent on filling every moment of leisure with pleasure, will entertain in other ways, such as cocktail, bridge, and tea parties. So the fun will con- tinue until the middle of March, when the Australian warships will leave Tas- manian waters.

In Country Setting

It was a happy thought on the part of Miss Mollie Shoobridge and her brother, -Mr. Fergus Shoobridge, to give a dance at their Glenora home before the' fast approaching hectic rush of parties begins. On Friday night an endless stream ot cars con- veying their quota ot young people ar- rived at Fenton Forest, the charming- ly situated home of Mr. and Mrs. D. M. Shoobridge, which so well lends itself to entertaining. The night was moon- lit, but bitterly cold. The chilly at- mosphere was soon forgotten, how- ever, by the guests as they entered the cosy, flower-decked rooms where log fires blazed in true country style. Spirited music soon started up, and it was not long after the arrival of the guests that the dining-room and wide verandah leading from lt presented an animated scene, the lovely gladioli used for decoration vying with the many pretty frocks in graceful move- ment. Everything was delightfully arranged, not least the sumptuous sup
