AMICA AMERICA

`Here,' I said to my wife, `is the Promised Land...'
It was even more true than I had thought. To me California remains the land of happiness. It is not overpopulated; it is fertile; it has the most constant and most healthful climate on the planet. It has beauty like that of Greece, sweetness like that of France, picturesqueness like that of Spain and vastness like that of Africa. Perhaps the East is more lively; the Middle West more energetic; but California is wiser. The citizen there is still not far removed from the pioneer.
I spent two days near San Francisco at Bohemian Grove, a part of a forest of giant trees where z Soo business men, artists and professors from San Francisco and elsewhere spend two weeks in the open air, sleeping in tents and eating together. I was enchanted by the beauty of the spectacle which evoked the youth of the world. In the central clearing a huge log fire blazed and the flames rose to half the height of the great trees. On a platform on the side of a fern-covered hill Lauritz Melchior sang and Irvin Cobb told stories. I was thrust under the spotlights:
`Tell us about France!'
I did my best. The trees that surrounded me, I was told, were standing there when Christopher Columbus landed.

At the beginning of this book I described Mills College. I had men and women students many of whom were teachers of French. In their company, for the space of two months, I lived in a beautiful dream. Together we read great books; the Budapest Quartet played Beethoven for us in the evenings; Darius Milhaud taught music, Fernand Lager taught painting; Madeleine Milhaud phonetics; Rene Belle poetry, all with ardour and ability. This 'Maison Fran~aise' was an old tradition at Mills College and, togethe.T with Middlebury, it was one of the centres of French studies in the United States. At the time of the disaster it was feared that it might be swept away by the debacle. Then President Reinhardt and Mademoiselle Cecile Reau had the courage to retain the session. We knew that upon our success depended the future of the institution. And so the teachers worked with an enthusiasm that attested their common desire to inspire, in these bad times more than ever, a love for our culture.
More even than at Princeton I felt the joy of following one of the callings for which I was born: that of teacher. Often I would take my
