Mr. Watrous has called my attention to that editorial of yours in the "Independent" under date of October 18. I am glad you have spoken so frankly and straightforwardly about this important matter. We cannot too fully emphasize the need of retaining a little beauty, at least, to flavor the sheer, stark, flat, so-called economics which some of these gentlemen think Is the only ideal. With best wishes, I am JHM/G-ACA Yours truly, [ILLEGIBLE] PresidentTo Dr. William F. Bade, Berkeley, California06306
