Kit Whitman knows. Her childhood in a pretentious mansion in Victoria, B. schooling among England's blue- bloods, and several years the wife of a wealthy Englishman, all sharply contrast to her present life as social director in a Sierra Nevada resort hotel "It really isn't as much of a contrast as it seems," says Kit. "Whether it is outfitting a pack trip into the High Sierra, directing the children's rides on burros, or arranging a bridge and tea lor the wives of convention guests, the purpose is to contribute everything possible to the enjoyment of visitors. "In the ballrooms of British Columbia, London and Hong Kong the purpose was the same. The big difference is that here we are dealing with purposeful people, whose pleasure is real and rewarding." The 200-room Ahwahnee hotel is Kit's domain. As social director, her job is to make everyone as comfortable and happy as possible. "This doesn't always entail supplying what they ask," she says." "Most of them don't exactly know what they expect from the few days they will spend with us, so my job is as much ferreting out what they would really enjoy as providing what they request." Shortly before the World War 11 Kit abandoned what she considered a pointless nomadic life of ease among European playgrounds of the wealthy and obtained an American divorce in Reno, Nev. She waived all monetary claims. She was broke, or practically so. "The first money I ever earned," she says, "was at the Monte Cristo dude ranch on Pyramid Lake, 30 from Reno. For beans, as they say, 1 a conducting horseback tours, taking guests to Reno, picking up laundry and supplies. Then I became hostess, teaching dudes to ride and swim and arranging their picnics. The income from a few remaining Canadian bonds provided spending money." bonds provided i money." While living in Victoria Kit had summered in Carmel, Calif. She returned to visit friends, did some organizing work for charities, established a profitable business and married Colden Whitman, a hydraulics engineer. They bought 300 acres of foothills land on the Fresno River. UNICEF Plans Made Party women are natural blondes.

A year after moving to the ranch Kit took a social job at Camp Curry in Yosemite and a year later moved to direct the company's social program from headquarters in the Ahwahnee. She drove the 64 mountainous miles home for weekends, summer and winter. Whitman almost single-handedly cnostructed a striking two- bedroom home on a granite outcropping overlooking- the river and valley. It has modern plumbing, its own water system; central heat and refrigerated air-conditioning. It is usod for guests, with a weekend waiting list, but soon will become their we have completed a new living room i a stone fireplace, and nn enclosed veranda." Kit remarks. Soon after they moved lo the ranch a Yosemite park concessionaire asked them to pasture a tew burros and Shetland ponies. The Whitmans fell in love with tho shaggy, stubborn, good- natured burros. They started a herd of their own. concentrating on a crossbreed of small, tough animals especially suited for children's pets. "One of these, days." says Kit, "when our construction is completed, we will settle down, enjoy our days with the burros and the evenings in front of that beautiful big stone fireplace, at home to all the wonderful friends we have made."
