She BookCadillac iotel ON WASHINGTON BOULEVARD THE STREET OF FINE SHOPS DETR0IT 9ood niht Just before bed time, hours after dinner time, did you ever sit and study the guests at the Book-Cadillac Hotel? The lobby is a crossroads with a thousand itinerants com ing, going, changing, and you measure them with a wholesome rule. Old roaring lion hunters tell tales to men who sit and think in terms of ten thousand cars. Music from the Blue Room, faint as a valley wind, beck ons youths and sweeter maidens to supper and dance. Younger salesmen dabble in dreams and rub shoulders with industry's captains. Midnight comes and early morning hours find late counsellors and revellers hur rying to pleasant rooms to restful beds as soft and as sleepy as a winter's night. The day is done. The city tires and quiets. A thousand guests are asleep. Good night. See you soon. THE BOOK-CADILLAC HOTEL Carl M.
