Re: Theos-World Re Path online, Vonda

 I always have just loved to hear Vonda Urban lecture. She would lecture at the TSA in America headquarters in Wheaton, Illinois about once a year. She was always well attended, and she always brought FREE pamphlets and books with her. She has a very stylish, almost European [French] and regal bearing, and is very lady-like, especially in these metro-sexual days of pants and leggings on women. I remember the day when we would NEVER wear slacks, or heaven-forbid, shorts or jeans, into the city, or to work or church. Vonda has always resisted the manly aggressive look. Though I have never attended her home meetings, they are very well attended in Chicago, where she lives. She was taking care of a brother that needed much assistance. I do not know whether she is still doing that.

Subject: Theos-World Re Path online, Vonda

Path online, Vonda U.

As Dan said (below) Theosophical University 
Press has put Judge's "The Path" online, 
as well as some early Tingley / Point Loma 
magazines. TUP might be the smallest of 
the big 3 TS, but put online the most material. 
I've been around for a while, and I've 
never even seen an issue of the Path, 
and it was by one of the founders. They 
are PDF and average about 1.8 mb per 
issue of the 120 issues, or ten years. 
They are scans put into PDF, which is 
probably the best way to have permanent 
archive copies. However they aren't the 
easiest to read, and the Adobe "copy to 
text function" is a joke. Higher quality 
scans would make the files too large. 
Everything is a compromise!

I heard from Vonda Urban, who Ken, 
Eldon and quite a few others know. She 
was an associate of all the old Point Loma 
people, and wrote a good deal for Zirkoff's 
"Theosophia" and also some in the "Eclectic." 
She is 88 and still active with a couple 
meetings a week, although under the weather 
currently. She said to say "Hi" to people 
who know her. 

Cass's story was funny about the 
drugist and how things work out. 
Synchronistically, had just read a Kipling 
story about the same thing. Someone 
got someone else's pocket watch (in old 
India), had a horse-wreck, the watch 
went flying under some woman's window, 
discovered, and the innocent real owner 
of the watch became half-wrecked with 
a false reputation of a peeping tom. 
They had a short-lived TV series on 
several years ago about a guy named 
"Chance" who was continually surrounded 
by such occurences, also a current 
series, similar to "Groundhog Day of 
Murray's - "Day One" (?)
