The engagement of Miss Mildred E. P. Stokes, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anson Phelps Stokes, to Dr. Ransom S. Hooker of this city has become public, although it has not been formally announced. Dr. Hooker, whose residence and office are at 26 East Forty-eighth Street, is a son of H. M. Hooker of Cooperstown. Miss Stoke's is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stokes, and has one un-married sister, Miss Helen O. P. Stokes. She made her debut several years ago, and, like several other members of her family, she is much interested in work in the slums and the tenement-house districts, and recently fitted up several cottages as vacation homes for poor boys.

One of her sisters, Miss Sarah Stokes. married the Baron Halkett, and another, Miss Caroline Stokes, married Robert Hunter, a Settlement worker, who came here from Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Hunter are now in Europe, to remain a year or so.

J. G. Phelps Stokes, a brother of Miss Stokes, married Rose Pastor, a Settlement worker, and another brother, the Rev. A. P. Stokes, Jr., married Miss Carol G. Mitchell of Washington and lives in New Haven.

Miss Stokes is now with her family at their Adirondack camp, and Dr. Hooker left town on Monday to be their guest for a few days. The wedding will probably take place in the Autumn.
