THACKERAY HOTEL The order was given many times during the Easter week end by library assistants, but mainly during Thursday afternoon and evening and Good Friday morning. Members of the Easter School were arriving from various parts of the country and the Continent, and the metropolitan members were intent upon making all haste to headquarters. No one could be there too soon, and a number of provincials had been fortunate enough to get to town during the earlier part of Thursday. The Hon. Secretary was one of the first arrivals. Officially, his duty to the Association demanded his presence unofficially, one suspected he was anticipating a good time, but he was entitled to the latter provided he fulfilled the former. Had his enjoyment depended upon the success of his arrangements he would have found it difficult to crowd it into the time the school lasted, for results showed that it would not have been possible to improve the programme or the manner in which it was carried out.
