Washington In Summer (Editor's Note — Mrs Ivy Hulton of Bancroft spent the summei with her daughter in Washington, D. C., recuperating from a broken hip. Her impressions of "Washington in the Summei" 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 pink blossoms, blooming from early sprin." until late fall. I believe my most inspiring sight \yas the capitol building, which is most impressive—particularly at night when it is nil 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 piec'. 1 of architecture. It is 555 feet tall. Fortunately it has an elevator which makes it easy for everyone to enjoy the magnificent view from the top. From there I saw the Lincoln memorial, modeled after a classic ] greek temple, situated on an minenoe in Potomac Park on the bunks of the Potomac River. Immediately in front of the Mem- ial is a large reflecting pool, the placid waters of which mirror the classic lines of this beautiful Temple • ;md 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. ;md the rolling hills of Maryland and Virginia. The Library of Congress justly celebrated as the culmination of architectural achievement of the clay, 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 get to see the President, or the pleasure of shaking hands with him. The big, busy Hurt-mi of Engraving iind Printing where most of this stuff we're spending comes from is a place worth your time 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. Vermin is a change from the motor tuurs. A visit to Washington should not be hurried; and it can must 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 out- National Capital; but everyone should see them, young or old. 60ih At Manilla, Mr and Mrs Clau; Grage recently observed their 60th wedding anniversary.
