Easter Egg Roll: 1921

Old White House customs rich in tradition and pleasing to the people are being revived. Normalcy, as the president says, is returning to the home of presidents. The kiddies of Washington are to be the guests of Mrs. Harding for an egg-rolling party on the south lawn Easter Monday March 23 that is planned to be the jolliest sort of gathering. Mrs. Harding is already busy with the details. She intends to color the eggs herself after the good old-fashioned method of wrapping them in gaily-printed calico.
