town Pasadena at all, but out in the
hills near San Marino. But before we
left, I noticed that our luggage was
lined up on the platform and that it
stretched the length of two railway cars.

van. Special trains are lots of f u n
and they are a good way to get to know
lots of people before Convention starts."

"Oh, yes'n we had special menus on
the train at special prices. I have them
here in my scrapbook i f you'd like to
see them."

And so we learned about the Sante Fe
Special. I t was the first time 1 hadn't
gone on the Special, and I ' d missed that
getting acquainted.

"Well," started the girl who was tell-
ing of the setting, "we'd driven out, and
we couldn't believe we were at the right
place when we turned into what looked
like a big private estate. The hotel
grounds and gardens are beautiful with
flowers everywhere and a ravine with
pools. There is a bridge across the
ravine and the ceiling is painted with
California scenes. The rooms are so
comfortable and the lobby and lounges
luxurious. There were tables in the
patio, but we had our meals in the
big dining room. I f you came early for
breakfast—or late, you were lucky to
get a table by the big windows that
overlooked the swimming pool and the
terraces. Except for breakfast there
were special menus for each meal, but
at breakfast there were some of us who
had steaks as often as we had scrambled
eggs." Breathless, she stopped, and
then added, "I've never been in a hotel
before where every maid and waitress
as well as all of the other hotel people
tried so hard to make everything per-
fect and I've never been in such a
beautiful place."

It occurred to me again that as long
as fraternity affiliation teaches its mem-
bers so much about gracious living, it
was quite right that it should introduce
its members to such surroundings at
Convention.

But I had waited f o r someone to
speak of that which will always make
The Huntington Convention a special
memory for me—the flowers, every-
where and always, fresh flowers in
great vases, small nosegays, corsages,
flowers prodigally arranged on doilies

Middle West spill over with them in
the summer, but the hotels use them
very penuriously.

I presume he chose that book be-
cause he thought any copy or
copies of that in the Hospital
would be in use, and he would thus
get rid of the "Woman in Yellow."
But he didn't know Mildred! She
went home, got her own copy, and
brought it to him. Having request-
ed the book, the boy couldn't very
well not make a start at reading it.
And, of course, having started it,
he finished it. He and Mildred
began discussing the book. It
wasn't long until he was requesting
other books, and soon Mildred and
her co-workers saw their warm
friendliness bear f r u i t in a changed
attitude, and a much more cheer-
ful acceptance, on the part of the
boy, of the lot which was his.

The library work would bring
some satisfaction i f it did nothing
but help the patients while away
tedious hours. But time and again,
the volunteers have seen a patient's
choice of reading material progress
from the lighter and less worth
while, to the weightier and more
thought provoking. The workers
have skillfully guided this by sug-
gestion, step by step. Thus they
have done more than to provide
these charity patients with some-
thing to pass the time. Through
the efforts of these volunteers, a
