Approximately 2,300 visitors bave already been etscorted th rough the Keslster'n Home Beautiful, wbicb wad opened to the pulilic for the first time at two o'clock last Saturday afternoon. Ahout 600 of them went through Saturday and about I,I>00 looked over the Home yesterday. Three hundred went through this afternoon. During practically the entire time the visitors cathe well scattered along in small gi-oups'and were able to see the house leisurely, without crowding and without taxing the capacity of the group of hosts and hostesses who were there to explain the features of the building and furnishings and to answer questions. The only time when this was not' true was iiumediately following the close of the lola Little Symphony Concert on Sunday afternoon. About 300 visitors came directly from the Memorial Hall to the Home Beautiful and naturally there was considerable congestion of "traffic" for some 30 or ,40 minutes. Any who were there at that time and did not get to |nspect ever>'thliig as carefully as they would have liked aie most cordially ln\-ited to return again any time during the open hours this week, dally from 2:UU to 6:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 p, m.

In making these exchanges the pastors were not only given a little vacation from their own charges, and the congregations a brief rest from tlielr. own pastors, but faithful .members who always may be counted upon to attend their own churc!i services were given an op- I>ortunity to hear some obe besides their own pastor.
