General note

Is in Izmir for the home economics fair and had a choice between a room with no windows but a shower, or the public hotel; "I'd rather suffocate than go in the stinkin' public john. This room is filthy enough. I'm not going to take a spit bath if I can get a shower."; At the fair, the American men in charge are a high powered lot, no American home economist planned the foods end, and the textile end is terrific; handling money is difficult in Turkey and describes how you need three purses to do it; story about a man with nothing in Turkey but his wife insists on going on to see her grandchild in India; The pres of the union called and thought he could borrow millions of I.C.A. Trust money to build a bigger Union and wanted her group to quickly plan the building for the Home Ec. Staff; the building seems lucrative; back in Ankara got a note saying her personal effects were finally in; Now looking for a new maid; currently her new apartment is being painted and she met some of the neighbors; the Minister of Agriculture occupies the house below her new apartment which will be walking distance to places such as the market
