Q:

Lasker:

I went with Mr. and Mrs. Blair to the F Street Club to a party given by Mr. and Mrs. Paul Rogers. Now, very few Congressmen or Senators ever entertain, and -- or certainly never entertain me, and I doubt they entertain very much. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers give a party usually once a year, and this was their party of the year and it was charming. Mr. Rogers gave a toast.
