HUNTINGTON LIBRARY EXHIBITIONS REOPENING New and varied attractions for vis- itors were arranged for the reopening of the Henry E, Huntington Library and Art Gallery on Tuesday, Novem- ber 2. Beginnfng that afternoon and continuing daily for two months, ex- cept Mondays, there will be special exhibits of prints, manuscripts, and books on such subjects as the Cries of London, chihtren's book illustration, the centenmal of coeducation in Amer- ica, and the Constitution of the United Status. The last named exhibit will be con- tinued this autumn as a contribution to the nationwide celebration of the formation of the Constitution, and for the benefit of California teachers and students, who have expressed interest in this notable asselnblage of import- ant Constitutional docunlents. Rare Prints Shown An interesting side of English eighteenth-century life--the cries of itinerant street vendors calling at- tention to such wares as milk, fish, flowers, and fruit--is portrayed in a series of thirteen engravings entitled "The Cries of London", which were :nade from paintings by Fraucis Wheatlcy, R. A. These are shown in the print room upstairs in the Art Gallery. F~mous Illustrators For the "California Kindergarten Primary Association, which meets in convention in Pasadena in November, the Huntington Library has selected a small exhibition of children's books, consisting of fairy tales and nursery rhymes, notable for their illustrations. Puss in Boots, Hop-O'-My-Thumb, Jack the Giant Killer, and Humpty Dunq)ty are but a few of fanliliar characters depicted by such famed artists as George Cruikshauk, Ran- dolph Caldecott, Kate Greenaway, and Arthur Raekham. Also in the Library is exhibited a small group of books assembled to ob- serve the centenary of the coeduca- tional movenlent which originated at Oberlin College in 1837. Botanical Gardens The botanical gardens, too, will con- tribute to the attractions for visitors. An unusual display of fruit of the South Anlcrican cereus may be seen from the walks in the cactus garden. The fruit ranges in size and shape from a hen's egg to a large apple and in color from shades of pink, red, and yellow, to purplish tints. The sight will continue probably for another month. In some cases these cactus appples are more decorative than the beautiful flowers of their plants. A display of the cereus fruits from the Huntington Botanical Gardens is a feature of the Pasadena Flower Show, which has as its theme the South American garden. .o.

In tenderness, I remember you ! Dreams and dreamers-- fairyland.., wonder dream come true! Thus the answer when you ask why my whimsy smile... When my eyes are tightly closed, I'm there on the Magic Isle! o Opposed Mr. Hobbs had acted for many years as secretary of one of the Rail- way Welfare Clubs.
