Each one has a lighted candle which burns steadily be- fore her in the still, hallowed air. In one darkened alcove a row of little flames blaze ruby red. On closer in- spection they are revealed to be burn. ing in tiny cups of colored glass. Be- side the great main altar a circle of flames in green cuplets forms an em- erald halo in the gloom. We gaze for a time in awed silence at the ornate grandeur of the altar-- ostentatiously rich in exquisite halian marble and rococo carvings of wood embellished with a fortune in gold leaf. As we pass the partially opened door of the sacristy, the sweet sound of young voices uplifted in a hymnal chorus falls upon our ears. It awak- ens echoes from tile myriad corners of the gigantic temple. I feel an enchant- ment sifting to the uhimate depths of my being. \Vith unvoiced regret do I step out into the glare of day and con- tinue with the others on our "tour": We take a coche (Angel being busy buying 2 new tires) and proceed to The Mexico-Spain School and Hom'e for Refugees. Here are acconunodat- ed some 500 children ranging fronl 8 to 17 years of age: over half of them boys. Most of the children are from Loyalist families in war-racked Spain; but neai'ly 50 are .Mexican ~wphans. The Spaniards will remain here until the Loyalists regain the conntry. If the Rebels vii~ out, then these Loyal- ist progeny will remain mltil they ma- ture to a wnrking age or else have been a(l~q~ted into Mexican families. The t)~vs aild girls have (tornfitories scparatc(l'by several blocks. However, ;ill eat at the main buihting with its hilve h,41ow . sqnare f/~r a play-yard. The boys may learn ilhn(~st any major trade : mechanics, printing, metal workinR, wo~d w~wking, etc. The girls help with lH'cparation of food, nl,keep of kitchens and dormitory, men(ling of chqhes. Both sexes receive instruction in the arts and are firmed t~, persevere ill ally direction toward which natural talent points. Sanitation ,f dres.~ and habits seems qnhe a minor issue in th'is institution. Nevertheless, all the ii'nna'tes appear adeqnately healthy and ill marvet6tl.~ spirits. Such ragging, rulming, and good-natnred rampaging I have:sehtom seen. A vouthful face vithottt,a-, latlgh or at least a big grin, seems an exCep- tion. So obviously lack of hy- gienic administration has not been no- ticed by the inmates thenlse}ves.
