At ceremonies held at Swan Island shipyard in Portland this morning at 11:30 o’clock Mrs. James W. Mott, wife of Congressman Mott, acted as sponsor at the launching of the U.S.S. Glenn’s Ferry. Mrs. Mott was attended by her daughters, Mrs. John L. Sullivan and Mrs. Benjamin Murry Whisenand, who served as the matrons of honor, and little Miss Beverly Mott was the flower attendant.
Mrs. Mott wore a handsome black afternoon dress trimmed with white chiffon embroidery and a small black hat.
Directly after the launching a luncheon was given in compliment to Mrs. Mott with members of the christening party and personal friends of the honored guest making up the group. Covers were place for 60 from Salem, Portland and other points about the state.
