Comdr. and Mrs. Arnold W. Cahpin were dinner hosts in the Fiesta Room of the Palm Beach Biltmore Sunday night.

Mr. and Mrs. Samuel A. Stephens and Mrs. Bassett W. Mitchell were a dinner threesome. Mrs. J. A.Whalen and daughters, Suzanne and Margaret of Chicago, were also noted in the Fiesta Room. Mr. Leroy C. Gross had a small dinner party. Miss M. McKinstry and Mrs. B. McDougall were at a table for two.

Among the arrivals at the Palm Beach Biltmore Sunday were Mr. Morton L. Harding and Mr. Bert V. Trump of Detroit, Mich,, who will remain through the winter season.

Mr. and Mrs. Philip McAbee of Muncie, Indiana, are here for a month's sojourn. Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Barren, Boston, Mass., will be at the hotel for three weeks. Mrs, Charles P. Donnelly, Philadelphia, will remain until April 1.

"A room with a view" the Fiesta Room of the Biltmore, which has become a very popular rendezvous for entertaining friends at luncheon as well as dinner. Overlooking the Terrace Gardens, the vista is incomparable, particularly on a sunny day when lunching indoors here gives the illusion of an a fresco atmosphere.

The color theme is chartreuse and white, dramatized with coral. Window draperies echoing these color tones, flaunt an effective live tropical design. Combining old world charm in the Spanish architecture, with modern furnishings and colorings, this gay dining and lunching spot is one of the outstanding places in the resort.

Adjoining the Fiesta Room is the intimate Fiesta Bar Spanish murals and bleached wood furnishings for the smart decor. It is a delightful place to entertain friends at cocktails preceding luncheon or dinner, or a cozy spot for informal afternoon cocktails, after a round of golf, shopping or bridge.
