The annual Dixie dinner dance of the New York Southern Society was held last night in the grand ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria. It was one of the largest in this series of dances, more than five hundred persons— members of the society and their guests— being in attendance. Many of the members gave dinner parties.
With Phelan Beale, president of the society, and Mrs. Beale, was their pretty daughter Edith, who debuted at the Pierre this previous January.
