Two students, Edwin Ide, '23, and
Walter Pear, '23, started last summer
on what is probably one of the most
unique trips ever engaged in by Mich-
igan students. Leaving Detroit. with
only $50 apiece, already they have'
"bummed" their way through Ger-
many, Poland, Austria, Czecho-Slova-
kia, Italy, and England. A large type-
written diary, kept by Ide, has been
received by his friends and is the1
source of the material of this article.

cerpts. follow:

"Fritzy, a shipmate, has just told

"Something I notice about the Ger-
man girls-none of them use cosme-
ties. "Food is ridiculously cheap. We
buy coffee for one cent, ice cream for
two cents, and so on. One can live
