New Orleans, March 29.—Tonight
tbt chefs and the cooks of New Or
leans were again called upon to em
phasize In a striking and long-to-be-
remembered way the hospitality of
the city. New Orleans always gives
expression to its hospitality at the
dinner table. The city's guests of
honor tonight were the majority
members of the house committee on
Industrial Art* and Expositions or
tho late congress who stood by New
Orleans agnlnst all opposition during
the fight for tho honor of celebrating
the opening of the Panama Canal.
In appreciation of the efforts and
friendship of these congressmen, an
Invitation was extended them to visit
New Orleans as the guests of the
city. They arrived this morning and
at a public reception tonight and a
banquet later learned of the high es
teem In which the people of New Or
leans hold them.

At a public reception at 8 o'clock
In the lobby of the New Grunewald
hotel an elaborate silver service set
was presented to Mr. Rodenberg and
silver loving cups to the other ma
jority members of the Industrial Arts
and Expositions Committee from the
people' of New Orleans. Governor
Sanders of Lousiana. Mayor Behrman
and others told the visitors that de
feat sometimes hath her heroes no
less than victory, and that New Or
leans so regarded them because no
pressure succeeded in making them
break their promises to support the
Louisiana city. Congessman Roden
berg responded for the visitors.
Immediately after the public re
ception, the doors of the Grunewald s
roof garden banquet hall were thrown
open, and" a banquet served which in
every way equalled the famous ban
