yourself. You won't have to look any
further for your favoraite summer sandals.

The Northern Road
The Alaskan Highway is the ultimate challenge for any
non-4-wheel drive vehicle. The 1,500-mile mostly un-
paved road through the Canadian Rockies can be a
nightmare for a well-worn tire. But for the
passenger, this highway is the only way to drive directly
to Alaska. And the scenery isn't bad along the way,
either.

Flagstaff has the feeling of an old
town once at the center of the mining
boom that now caters largely to tourists
and skiers. The Canyon lies about 80
miles northwest.
ONE DAY we rent a car along with
other hostellers from Austria and
Australia and drive to the Canyon,
which is really impossible to describe.
Safe to say that it reduces one's per-
spective to that of an ant. It is huge,
awesome, and incredibly beautiful.
On our night bus to the Coast, we har-
dly sleep at all-such is the restlessness
of the passengers. At one point we stop

to change drivers, and the man sitting
next to Carolyn asks if it's California
yet, then clambers off the bus and
nearly kisses a palm tree as he yells,
"This is it, man!"
In San Diego the temperature is in the
70s-we dash for the bus station
restroom to strip off our long johns. We
stay with Carolyn's friend a few days
and see some of the city's attractions:
Svenson's ice cream; Balboa Park,
home of the famous San Diego Zoo; the
beaches, which are accessible by bus;
and range from elegant (La Jolla) to
hippy/surf culture (Pt. Loma and
others). The water is freezing, though.

By the time we say goodbye to "Fun"
Diego we are tanned and freckled. The
ride up north is spectacular, since we
go through dry country to incredibly
lush, hilly land.

Students Dig English countryside
Wroxeter, England is the site of an ongoing archaeo-
logical dig that has lasted for nearly four decades. A
University student stays at a very proper English boy's
school near Wroxeter, learns how to make tea, and un-
covers part of the macellum (meat market) of ancient
Wroxeter, which in turn, covers a Roman fortress.

On the Gringo Trail
The Gringo Trail is traversed by hundreds of college
students each year. It runs through the Yucatan Peninsula
in the Mexican Caribbean. A trip along the trail combines
a chance to learn of ancient civilizations with the oppor-
tunity to bargain-shop in Mexican villages, stroll along
beautiful, sandy beaches, and sample Mexican transpor-
tation.

WHAT IN BLAZERS
IS NEW
AT SOUTH WICK.
It's hard to imagine a more
classic, timeless article of
clothing than the Southwick
blazer. It's been a standard of
constant correctness for gener-
ations. Not to say there
haven't been innovations.
In fact, today the South-
wick blazer is available in a
variety of solid colors as well
as fabrics such as lightweight
worsted, hopsack and 3-ply
blends. But only in a relatively
limited number of stores.
We're one of those stores.
It's a tradition among gentle-
men we're proud to carry on.

Rolling slowly westward -
the 36-hour ride
A bus carries two people westward, offering them a
look at America through bus station culture, inexpensive
cafes, and remarkable natural landscapes-also, a chan-
ce to overhear countless unique conversations.

The Greyhound Ameripass is
available at the bus depot at Huron and
Main Streets and costs $159.60 for seven
days, $208.85 for 15 days, and $348.10 for
30 days. Each additional day added on
to the pass costs $10.70.
The Ameripass is good on all
Greyhound routes across the United
States for unlimited travel while it is
valid. If a Greyhound bus does not go to
the desired destination, very often a
Continental Trailways will; and the
Ameripass can be used in this case as
long as it is validated by a Greyhound
ticket agent.
There is departure time information,
where to make connections, and useful
maps depicting the Greyhound network
across the entire country at the Ann
Arbor depot. It is advisable to buy the

Ameripass in advance, since there can
be delays.
Inexpensive accommodations are
hard to come by, but they DO exist-it
just takes some effort to find them.
Youth Hostels are the least expensive
places, offering bunk beds in common
sleeping rooms (like dorms) for $3 to $6
a night.
Membership to the American Youth
Hostels is approximately $15 a year,
which entitles members to lower hostel
fees and a subscription to the monthly
Michigan AYH newsletter. Hostel Car-
ds are available at the International
Center at the University. A handbook
listing all the U.S. hostels, plus lots of
handy information for hostellers is
given along with the card.

A summer on N. Manitou
North Manitou is suffering a severe deer over-
population problem. The National Parks Service has fun-
ded a deer management study on the northern Lake
Michigan island. Dave and Jane Case spend a summer in
this isolated, lovely region, collecting deer population
statistics for a combination deer management proposal
and master's thesis in wildlife management.

Mardi Gras: A city
puts its cares on hold
A Northerner travels to the Mardi Gras and finds the
glitter a little tarnished. He talks with a taxi driver who
smokes pot as he drives his cab and listens to a retired
foreman's "checkerboard" theory on New Orleans neigh-
borhood socio-economic divisions.
