Col. and Mrs. Robert E. Lee Lead Grand March at White Sulphur.
Special to The New York Times.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va., Aug. 13.—One of the most interesting social events in the history of this resort was the mid-Summer german, held at the “Old White” last night. The dancers were visitors from all over the country, and ranged from 14 to 87 years of age. Many are well known in the social world.

There was a patriotic touch to the affair. The famous old ballroom, upon whose floor four Presidents, many statesmen and diplomats and two heirs to the British throne have danced, was decorated with patriotic colors. The women carried silk American flags.

The grand march was led by Colonel and Mrs. Robert E. Lee. The first figure group was led by Miss Anna Louise Warmack of St. Louis and Colonel Gene Kelly of Atlanta. The second was headed by Miss Mary Taylor of Richmond, Va., and William Keyser.

Among those present were former Governor and Mrs. John M. Slaton, Colonel John T. Lumkin, Dr. and Mrs. Teodore P. Hinsman, Atlanta; Miss Stella Benedict, New York; Miss Elaine Sherer, Summit, N.J.; Miss Carroll Smith Philadelphia; Mr. and Mrs. Louis Ripley, New York; Willoughby Sharp and Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Lewisohn of New York.
