WASHINTON a chance to see a Ubrary. It looked as though tliere were millions of books. I was interested in the arts, so that is where I spent most of my time. After leaving the hbrary, we rode to the Smithsonian Institute. This was where we saw gowns that were worn by wives of Presidents to Inaugural Balls. It was fascinating to see the laces and materials each woman wore. It wcidd take several days to see llic many things on display. The next building was the Washing ton Monument, a very tall structure 555 ft. in height. One can reach the top by taking the elevator or the stairs. The choice is with the individ ual. On reaching the top we could see all over Washington and much of Vir ginia. I am sorry to say because of traffic we did not get inside Lincoln Me morial, but we shall go next time. We left there and ended our day at the Jefferson Memorial.

She further stated that the launch ing of the Russian satellite turned a microscopic light on American edu cation.
