"Tlu Place 1 Like Besi in South UenA" certainly brought a vari

they were this weck. 1 think that vuur interests are all very well
placed and some day, when I have lots of time, I think that I'll take
a day olT and look up some of the interesting spots that you wrote
about, for some of them sounded very thrilling and some verv rest
ful, and as if they were just the place it would be nice to viMt.
The Places which were chosen as be:ng the most interesting in
cluded the Place where Liberty bonds and War Savings stamps are,
sold the Red Cross building the olf links, the post oiiice, the rail
road, the center of town, South Bend itself, the court house lawn,
the cannon on the lawn at the city hall building, Spnngbrook,
Howard park, on the farm, Perlev school, Oliver Chilled Plow
works, South Bend Lathe works, St. Mary's woods, the University
of Notre Dame, the woods near South Bend, the -public library, the

T think the most interesting spot
In South Bend is the public library.
Whenever I have to wait down
town for something (such as having
a watch fixed or bicycle repaired) I
step into the library'. I can take a
book or magazine and read or study
the pictures. No matter how many
books I read there is always some
thing new. In reading books?, I be
come acquainted with the author?.
I become to know their life, because
most authors write something they
have seen or experienced in their
Hy reading I began to know how
to construct sentences and to write
compositions. The public library
has books suitable for children, girls,
boys, mothers ajid fathers, each one
can enjoy a friendly talk with the
authors and still gain knowledge,
because reading is the simplest
method of gaining clear perception
of truth and fact.
This is why I think the library' i
the best place to spend my time.
