A way of living, the gracious! warmth and lavish hospitality that ( the bpamsh Dons oequeatned to their American successors, fades an-1 other step mto the past as Mrs. Mae Perkins Mackipnon, daughter of the1 statesman, prepares to leave thet home in which she was born. Already it's lonely. . Its 22 rooms, filled with treasures from the four corners of the world, are silent. Its statuary and pictures xeem to be meditating on glories of the past. Tall windows are boarded, and the only light, of gorgeous hues, filtered through intricate designs in stained glass, casts an aura over the plump-cushioned chair where Senator Perkins sat in his library. PUNCHBOWL EMPTY A vagrant breath of air tinkles cut glass chandelierr that once threw sparkling ligr. on parties where the elite of Oakland paid homagfe to great men of American history. The huge kitchen, where cooks and bakers prepared the banquets over which the senator presided, is vacant, its great -old range bare. The cut glass punchbowl on the built-in buffet is empty. The three magnificent pianos in the music room are silent. Fifty years ago, every one of the 11 bedrooms had its occupant. Music and light and the glow of fireplaces in every room augmented the chatter of voices and clink of glassware. Dignified civic leaders' and their elaborately gowned ladies strolled through landscaped gardens, walked along wide driveways. Birds nesting in the palm trees, looked down across broad open fields toward the bay where a cluster of buildings formed ,the village of Oakland. It was the Perkins place, home of the former governor; the man who had just started what was to be a 22-year career as U.S. senator.. To it came statesmen and business executives, to be feted and entertained as visiting royalty. SENATOR'S SELECTION Perkins himself selected the site, on Vernon Heights, designed the home, and superintended every stage of its construction.
