HOWARD AT WORK
Lad Thursday's Entertainment Con-alated of Bridge and Musical Number!.
> The gracious co-operation of th*1 • Aiken townspeople with the staff of Aiken Cuttages in bringing a little sofia I diveraioa to the omewhat sequestered life of the C tit airers, merits public approbation.
These socials, which have bren . • Ubiiahed aa weekly events, ha', o a who!* nome influence upon rtrc morale and are conducive to good health. They sound a .unique departure in the conduct of institutions of this kind. They dispel gloomy introspections; mollify the constant irritation of incompatibilfty that manifests itself in all sanatoriums by reason of close association with divers characters and temperaments; *nd last but most important, serves to establish friendly contact with the “outside world."
It ia not uncommon to overhear, in public places in town, the remark that one has a rendezvous for Thur-*! slay evening at the Aiken Cottages,
