Mr. and Mrs. Jerome J. Hanauer gave a dinner followed by an evening of bridge and mah jong at their estate in White Plains on Tuesday. Among their guests were Mr. and Mrs. Max J. Bernheim, Mrs. Edward Steinam, Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Rosenbaum, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Snellenburg, Mr. and Mrs. Otto Marx, Mr. and Mrs. Milton Bach and Mrs. Eli Winkler.

Mr. Hanauer was a member of the firm of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. before he retired. He is very much interested now in his country home. His hobby is farming, and aside from the more luxurious features of his estate, such as the swimming pool, he has concentrated on the more practical problems of raising horses, cows and chickens.

There was a dinner dance at the Hollywood Golf Club last Saturday night, which was attended by a fairly large crowd in spite of a thunder shower which for a time threatened to turn the party indoors. The storm blew over however, and although the floor remained a little damp, the enthusiasm of the guests was not in the least. The bar was so jammed all evening that it was fairly impossible to edge one’s way in. However, from time to time, one saw Mrs. Lawrence Leeds emerging, looking particularly charming in pink net, or Mrs. Walter Leibman Jr., with her two guests, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Cohn fighting their way in. The younger members of the Hofheimer family and Miss Virginia Kaufman seemed to have captured the stag line, which probably accounted for the congestion in the bar.

Mrs. Joseph Gage gave a buffet dinner for her daughter, Miss Margery Gage, on Saturday evening at her home on Ocean avenue in Deal, N. J., for about fifty of the younger crowd at the coast. Among her guests were the Misses Helene Salomon, Eleanor Seligman, Nancy Strauss, and Mr. and Mrs. Stewart Haugt, Mr. and Mrs. Milton Blum and Mr. and Mrs. Martin Cohn. Also the Messrs. Norman Sachs, Austin Fisher, Otto Marx Jr., Henry Marx, Lyman Bloomingdale, Walter Kahn, Austin Kaye and Newton Kutner. Following the dinner the whole party adjourned to the Hollywood Golf Club dance.
