Washington In Summer (Editor's Note — Mrs Ivy Hut- torTof Bancroft spent the summer with her daughter in Washington, D. C., recuperating from a broken hip. Her impressions of "Washington in the Summer" follow): • « • Washington, D. C. in the summer time is a beautiful city to see. Take a ride; no matter which way you go, you see trees, shub- bery and flowers of all descriptions, some with large pinlc blossoms, blooming from early spring until late fall. I believe my most inspiring sight was the cnpilul building, which is most impressive—particularly, at night whon it is all lighted up. ( When Congress is in session, it's the breeziest place in Washington! Another interesting .sight is the Washington monument which is also an outstanding pieco of architecture. It is 555 feet tall. Fortunately it has an elevator which makes it easy for everyone Id enjoy the magnificent view from the top. From there I saw the Lincoln memorial, modeled after n classic jreek temple, situated on nn eminence in Potomac Pnrk on the banks of the Potomac River. 1m- nodi;ite!y in front of the Memorial is n large reflecting pool, the placid waters of which mirror !.he classic lines of this beautiful Temple nnd the Washington monument. The Jefferson Memorial is at the south end of the Tidal Basin You can also see the Japanese Cherry trees, practically all the rest of the city, and the rolling hills of Maryland and Virginia. The Library of Congress justly celebrated as the culmination of architectural achievement of the day, was completed in 1897. It is the largest and most complete in the world and a book worms paradise. The Smithsonian Institute is bursting with fascinating collections of everything historic, prehistoric and current—all which are very educational. It was most interesting to go through the White House, I didn't f?cl to see the President, or have the pleasure of shaking hands with him. The big, busy Bureau of Engraving and Printing where most of this stuff we're spending comes from is a place worth your lime to visit. There is much more to Washington than beautiful buildings, homes and landscaping. On summer evenings the National Symphony Orchestra offers music that is a treat—and a boat trip down the Potomac to Ml. Vernon is a chimfie from the motor tours. A visit to Washington should not be hurried; and it can most profitably be part of the education of every young person. I waited quite a while before I got to see some of the wonders of our National Capital; but everyone should set them, young or old. 60th At Manilla, Mr and Mrs Glaus Grage recently observed their 60th wedding anniversary. i Week-end Shoping Tips From | YOUR FRIENDLY ST0RE 'best uys rusk's this week!!
