As this is written in 1954, Harry is living in San Antonio and although not young any more, he is still a going concern as he always was. He was Rotary's 16th President. Margaret and I had a fine visit with Harry at our hotel in San Antonio in 1949. We had received a parking ticket that A.M. at Laredo, Texas but had continued on our trip without calling at police headquarters. This worried us so that evening we had Harry phone the Secretary of the Laredo Club and he told Harry to forget all about it. In 1952, when we flew to Mexico City to the convention, I called Harry from the San Antonio airport going and coming. It is always nice to even say "Hello" to old friends.
