Where do we
By Patricia Hagen and Mark Parrent
It's near midnight. It's very dark.
You're very confused and you begin to
get a sinking feeling in your stomach.
At first you brush it. off, attributing
the nausea to the last four stops at Mc-
Donald's. But your palms start to
sweat. Soon the symptoms become too
much: You're forced to accept
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Right off the bat it helps to blame
someone else. The sleeping navigator
who bragged of his "built-in compass"
is an inviting target. Once the respon-
sibility for the problem is in its proper
place, you can devote your talents to
resolving the inconvenient situation.
Getting "un-lost" is about as easy
as refolding a road map correctly, but
the options are many:
" Keep on driving in circles and
depend on dumb luck. Convince your-
self that you love adventure, discovery,
" Revert to basic navigation skills.
Remember moss grows on the north
side of trees and the sun rises in the east
and sets in the west. This last point may
not be helpful at night, but if you're still
lost at dawn ...
* Don't hesitate to ask for directions.
Remember the story about Joe "I'm
independent" Blow who was traveling
out west last summer. Convinced he
could make it on his own (even though
he didn't know where he was), Mr.
Blow suddenly realized he should have
turned left two states back.
But a word of caution: Remember
that the selection of advisors is
somewhat limited in the middle of the
night. Take your choice among gas
station attendants, staggering
drunks, sleeping winos, or other night
creatures. If the person you eventually
ask has never heard of the place you're
looking for, consider changing your
* If all else fails, decide that where
you are is where you wanted to be after
Time put for traveling
A U of Mstudent named Joe
For the summer had nowhere to go.
He thought and he thought
About whether he ought
To travel or stay here with Bo.
He picked up his Daily by chance,
And traveled the world at a glance.
From East coast to West
He looked for the best
And settled for croissants in France.
Remarkable, quick-thinking Joe
Exclaimed to himself "Well, I know!
I'll charter aflight
Today or tonight
IfI canfind money to go.

If a University student were to
develop an ideal city, it would include,
among other things, many young
people, nightspots, fine museums, good
local bands, libraries, 19th century ar-
chitecture, and a few first rank sports
Before this enterprising individual
embarks on such a bold project, it
might be wise to structure the outline
around a particular city on the East
FOR THOSE OF you who don't know,
and God help you if you don't, Boston
sets on the Atlantic coast in the fairly
liberal-minded state of Massachusetts.
The city might be called Kennedy
country, Beantown, or perhaps the
educational center of the United States,
given the prominence and abundance of
its local jniversities. But to the ex-
perienced observer, Boston offers
everything from a hectic afternoon

fighting the shoppers at the Italian Nor-
th End's Haymarket Square to sailing
on the wide and soon to be
clear waters of the Charles River.
Pretentious as it might sound, Boston
is just another word for class. Just take
a leisurely walk through the business
district during lunch hour if you don't
believe. Bankers, lawyers and
politicians will be decked out in their

finest restaurants imaginable. The
selection of food is limitless, but since
Boston sets near the ocean, a seafood
dinner is a must. Stay away from the
overpriced small servings at name
places like Jimmy's and Anthony's Pier
Four. Joseph's Aquarium is highly
recommended because its harborside

If you happen to be a history fanatic,
you've come to the right place. Prac-
tically every important building from

Exhibits and shows all over the city
depict historical events, suchas battles
at Bunker Hill, Lexington and Concord.
After viewing the spectacles, you can
take a short walk and visit the site
where history actually took place.
The freedom trail is a must. Every
red-blooded cub scout visiting the area
has taken that journey. Standing below
the church steeple where Paul Revere
flashed the lanterns to signal "the
British are coming!" or pretending to
fire a cannon on the UxS.S. Constitution
are highlights of the tour.
FOR WINDOW shoppers, Newbury
Street is teaming with boutiques. The
prices are a bit high, but it's still fun to
look. When you're tired of walking, stop
for a drink at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel,
which overlooks the Public Gardens
and the Commons.
To swallow Boston and nearby com-
munities in one big gulp, a trip to the
top of the John Hancock Building or the
Prudential Building would suffice. On
clear days you can see up to 100 miles.

if you prefer your islands balmy
and remote with names like Bora Bora
and Rarotonga, then ftu probably can't
appreciate what is enchanting about
Hilton Head, St. Simons, Jekyll, Cum-
berland, and Amelia.
ALL ARE barrier islands anchoring
the Carolina, Georgia, and Florida
coasts, and most are reachable by
bridge or causeway. Yet each one
exudes -a splendid feeling of isolation
and mystery common to far-flung isles.
Their finest hours seem to be in the
spring-March, April, and well into
June-when the remarkable long, well-
packed beaches warm to the low coun-
The island has also become a popular
midwinter resort. Most visitors. are
looking for a taste of paradise and the
inviting vanilla beaches afe too tempt-
ing to refuse.
IN'DECEMBER, for instance, the
high temperature hovers consistently
above the 70-degree mark with the low
never dipping below the mid-40s.
Hilton Head offers the same "sun and
fun" of Ft. Lauderdale and the
Bahamas, but with a little out-of-the
way magic and enchantment. For
isolationists and sunworshippers, it is
the closest thing to heaven on this ear-
Hilton Head, the largest and most
thoroughly developed of the barrier
islands, owes its name not to a hotel
baron, but a long-ago searcher named
William Hilton. Second in size only to
Long Island among offshore East coast
islands, Hilton Head is a slowly
vanishing wilderness of moss-hung
oaks, palmetto clusters, wind-swept
beaches, and vast tidal marshes.
Only two resort-style hotels are on the
island-the 200-room Hilton Head Inn
and the 10-story Hyatt at Palmetto
Dunes. But lots of neatly-shaped con-
dominiums offer sports that tourists
and residents alike can handle: golf
(nine courses), tennis (including the-
world-famous 30-court Sea Pines
Racquet Club), horseback riding,
biking, natue walks, and kite flying.
Nearly 20 years as a resort and on
the verge of out-growing itself, the once
sedate Hilton Head now has a disco or
two and a few franchise food parlors for
those who want a little wildness in
