One of the most impressive fea- tures will be the cabanas, which Mrs. Ernest Sultan and Mrs. Bar- rett Randick have sold for the day to stores, banks, hotels, travel agencies, transportation com- panies .and others.

But the cabanas are only one of the features planned for the party. The day will begin at 2 p. m. and continue until 2 a. m. the next morning. All indications are that this will be the party to end all parties. The event is'open to the public.
