On January 9th, Swami Yogananda opened his Washington, D.C., series of lectures by a talk on "Everlasting Youth" before a distinguished audience of 5000 people in the magnificent new Washington Auditorium. This lecture was followed by eleven other lectures on succeeding nights, and aroused tremendous enthusiasm among Washington people. Rev. Lohman of Cleveland, who assisted with the Washington program, writes: "I returned from the Washington lectures very much elated with the wonderful success Swami is having there. Washington Auditorium was packed with 5000 hungry souls feeding on Yogoda as Swami hurled his thunderbolts of Truth and humor at them nightly for three weeks. The first session of the Washington Yogoda Class filled the Ballroom of the Washington Hotel to capacity."
