AFFAIRS OF THE ASSOCIATION
The annual meeting of the Association will be held in Aus-
tin on April 18-19. Headquarters will be the Driskill Hotel
where the Friday morning program and the noon luncheon
will be held. The book auction will probably be opened on
Friday afternoon and continued on Friday night after the
dinner at the Union Building.
The Junior Historians will begin their program on Satur-
day morning and in the afternoon will go on a conducted tour
of the historic places in Austin. There are now about thirty
chapters organized and the attendance is sure to be much
greater than last year.
In connection with the Association meeting there will be a
section on Saturday devoted to old Texas houses. This part
of the program will be in charge of Dr. S. E. Gideon of The
University of Texas, and inquiries should be addressed to him.
Gifts to the book auction should be sent in at once in order
that the books may be appraised and catalogued. We have
on hand a number of rare pamphlets and out of print books,
some of which were left over from last year. Librarians are
invited to attend this auction with a view to building up their
Texas collections. Those who purchase books at the auction
are given credit on their membership in the Association, not
to exceed one year. For example, a bidder who spends five or
six dollars not only receives the books but credit for one year's
membership.
Now that The Junior Historian magazine is being published,
the Junior Historian announcements will be discontinued in
the Quarterly. See the new magazine to keep informed on the
activities of the youngsters.
