Excerpt from Message

I've just come in from to days on the desert - Palm Springs and D.H.S. and am glad to be back in cool, cool L.A. Saturday I visited the Grahams in Pasadena. They are in Oakland this week with Alice who is beginning classes in Oakland. I often think of the beauty and graciousness of the S.D.C. and the area. With love, Jo
