They were traveling under the di­ rection of Paul LaTumer, Paul Smith’s College, 1963. These stu­ dents had as a theme for their visitation, “ Enlightment in the Hospitality Field” with the thought that by visiting and communicating directly with Paul Smith’s College students they could see, examine, and convey ideas and reasoning that other students have for the hospitality industry. Mr. LaTurner was accompanied by his wife, Mr. Hyatt, another in­ structor at Erie Tech and John Glenn, Paul Smith’s ’65, now at State University of New York at Buffalo. The group visited the col­ lege on Saturday morning where they had lunch. This was followed by a tour of the Lake Placid Club and a cocktail party and dinner at the Hotel Saranac.
