THROUGH A WINDOW BY ADA McGRATH LEE (This manuscript was found in the papers of the author after her death, and has never been published.) After threading your way down the narrow streets that are a distinc tive feature of the French Quarter of New Orleans, Jostled by Italian fruit vendors, beggars, peddlers, Spanish eyed girls, and French Market wom en, it is refreshing to turn from the sights and sounds, and scent of traf fic, to a quiet street, where the walls stand straight and high, save where they are indented by ponderous arch ways, whose scrolls ?nd niches are crumbling under the hammer and chisel of the sculptor, Time. The Church and Convent of St. Es-I prit seem, to have been always mel lowed and tinted by Age. I had grown up in the shadows cast by I these gray edifices, for my home I stood between them, elbowing the 1 Church on the right, and overlooking I the Convent gardens on the left. The old house with its queer gables and 1 little hanging balconies partook of 1 the ...

A splendid the program is being arranged which you the shall hear more about later. Mrs. abl Cowles of Virginia is back at state headquarters after a two months va- gri cation and is making plans for the ha raising of the yearly budget, she writes: "There are many of us who no feel that the one safe and sane plan to raise money is by a drive for a no large membership in addition to con tributions from people of means who are sufficiently interested in good no government to assist the work of the League." This is a valuable sugges- go tion, why not start our fall activities by replemishing our treasurers and wi increasing our membership We have just passed through a time when at we have had an opportunity to shaw to great advantage the strength and in power of the League and now is the time to strike.

TROUGHA WINDOW (Continued from page five) away to pray in the Church at this hour, when life was one long prayer and penance in the Convent. There was something infinitely pitiful in the act and attitude of the nun, who knelt at the Virgin's shrine perhaps half an hour, when a clock somewhere in the city struck ten, and she arose hur riedly and left the Church as she came. As she passed the high mid dle altar something in her hands caught a ray of light from the taper, I and gleamed like drops of blood hung upon a silver thread, and I recognized I the rosary of Sister Ignatius. It will - und like a confession of I idle curiosity to say for several suc cessful eveniggs, I was in the Church, I waiting, far back in the shadows, for 4 the blackrobed figure to come and I pray at the Madonna's altar. At the < same hour every night she came, like a ghostly visitant to a haunted spot, I and I was surprised, after I had be-. i come accustomed to seeing her come i alone, to find her accomp...

THE LITTLE THEATRE Pursuant with your request that I write you concerning the forthcom ing season of the Little Theater Guild, the initial performance being set for the early part of November, at which time I will be charged with the production, I take pleasure in complying thereto for the reason that your journal reaches the women of our community and it is to them that I would direct certain information and make certain appeals. The Lit tle Theater enters upon the second years of its existence with the ex perience of last season some very radical changes have been effected which I will briefly recount as foL lows. One of the lessons taught by the first year's experience was the ne cessity for conveniences for the play ers and the stage carpenters and scene painters and the assembling of the properties so that they may be easily available to the producers and their colaborators. The large quan tity of properties involved were scat tered hither and thither and wherev er free storage...

Walker-Released from Duty in Printing 0 Officee and Ordered to Join Company. r f SJw BY GENERAL JOHN MCGRATH h, 1c The last chapter of my story closed while the main portion of the Amer. ican forces was gathered in a large old church awaiting night to slip away. All saddle and pack animals were also sheltered by the massive dobe walls, the drivers having taken them there as soon as we drove the enemy from the plaza. Two or three times during the afternoon the Costa Rican officers succeeded in inducing their men to leave their hiding places for the purpose of attacking us but as soon as the Americans opened fire they broke and ran to shelter meet ing with heavy loss at each venture. On account of the crowded condi tion1 of the church by men and ani mals some time elapsed before I en- 1 countered any of my home compan- i lons and I knew nothing of their fate 1 until I found Dalmas in one of the ...

State Board of Education on the splendid teachers throughout the stte but asked, "Is it not a mistake to teach the child to read and appreciate good books and then not give him, ex cept in isolated places, any books to read 9?" Fourteen thousand good books are stored in the basement of the library of the Louisiana State University Miss Hill said, and there is no way to distribute them where they will be useful. The books are the post-war' gift of the American Library asso ciation and the state federation, but as long as there is no appropriation for the library commission, they wilil be useless. "The establishment of the commis sion is only a wedge, and it is going to take much prying to open the hard heads and hearts of the legislative 't body to vote for these funds," she de- t clared. "Only through education by N the federated clubs can the people t feel the need for books and the neces- a sity for educating their legislators f to that need.
