Europe and the Mediterraneani
countries rose from 556,000 to1
637,000, according to figures com-
piled by the U. S. Department of,
Commerce and Department of1
Justice.-
South America was up from 51,-l
000 to 52,000 while other lands
overseas rose from 58,000.to 64,-
.000. Japan alone showed a nearly
10 per cent gain, from 44,000 to1
48,000.
The lands across the Atlanticj
landed the biggest share of tour-
ist loot, even more than the more,
easily accessible vacation spots in,
Canada and Mexico.
Up Eighty Million
Europe's share of the 1958 tour-'
ist dollar totalled 560 million, up
-nearly 80 million from the pre-
vious year. Italy, France and
Britain together garnered more
than half that sum.
Canada drew down 323 million
and Mexico 319 million, not in-
cluding the money spent by tour-

The West Indies and Central
America collected 156 million
tourist dollars; South America 37
million and other areas 65 mil-
lion, with nearly half that total
going to Japan.
Air Travel Preferred
The airplane has long since
taken over from the ocean liner
as the favorite form of travel to
far away places and the. trend
away from the sea is increasing,
especially since the air lines in-
creased economy class flights.
Last year, 1,106,000 vacationists
went abroad by air, an increase of
40,000 over the previous year,
while only 292,000 went by sea, a
decrease of 11,000 from the 1957
figure.
The average native-born Amer-
lean tourist stayed 44 days in for-
eign lands in 1958 and spent an
averageof $22.73 a day. Foreign-
born residents, however, remained
64 days, spending only $9.88 a day,
probably while staying with rela-
tives.
Americans Homelovers
For the most part, Americans
are regionally minded, even when
junketing a few. thousand miles
from home.
Travelers from the state of New
York made up more than a quar-
ter of those Americans who went
to Europe and the Mediterranean
in 1958.
A quarter of those who went to
the Far East were Californians
and one out of four travelers in
the Caribbean were from actoss
the narrow straits in Florida.
