The appeal of Europe, the call to
go and see for oneself the cradle of
our civilization, has in years past
attracted. millions of Americans to
undertake the journey across the sea.
The Orient, mystical and intensely
interesting, is growing increasingly
popular with tourists from this coun-
try, while the isle-studded Mediter-
ranean, teeming with legends of the
Greeks and Romans, is a delight to
both the scholar and the lover of
If the time is short, the West In-
dies and Bermuda are both charm-

This year, with political spotlights
calling our attention to the nations
across the seas, steamship compamies
have made unusual offers, and prices,
despite the depreciated dollar, are
down to lower levels.
Steamship fares and foreign raili
road and hotel rates are to be espe-
cially low during the coming summer.
Arrangements may be made for
travellers to go and return by dif-
ferent .routes, so that they may ex-
perience both the cheery formality
of the English ships and the luxury
of the Italian liners, to say nothing
of the German, French, Dutch, and
Scandinavian boats.
Everyone goes to Europe for a dif-
ferent purpose. The spinster hopes
that she will be able to sneak off and
go to the Follies Bergeres. The busi-
ness man wants to see how much
better his methods are than those of
the foreigners.

Simple Clothes Chosen
Practical Value In Travel

Do you remember playing "I
packed my grandmother's trunk to go
to Europe," in the days of your
youth? It was one of those games
that went on and on, with everyone
concerned listing numerous extra-
ordinary objects that grahdmother
simply had to take to Europe.
If our grandchildren play the same
game and if they stick to the facts
in playing it they will be much more
limited in their choice of objects, for
nowadays the grandmothers-to-be
retrict themselves to exceedingly lim-
ited traveling wardrobes. Whether
they are taking a trip around the
world or are only going visiting for
the holidays they concentrate on
smartly simple garments which will
pack easily and will not muss or
To wear en route there is nothing
like a suit, one of the nice tweedy
mixtures with a three-quarters length
coat. With this a very tailored blouse
may be alternated with dressier ones
for stop-overs. For the afternoon
frock which is essential to the com-
plete wardrobe a printed frock is
ideal. It will provide an exhilerating
change from dark traveling wear and
in addition will not show soil or
Evening frocks are a major prob-
lem for the traveler who does not
have room to pack yards and yards
of train or to keep voluminous or-
gandy ruffles smooth. Prints come to
the rescue here again with lace also
practically fool-proof in packing.
Men Should Stress
Comfort In Clothes
Clothes for traveling aren't much
different from those that are worn by
landlubbers as far as the men are
concerned. If you're equipped for
one you'll get along on the other
without any difficulty.
The best thing to do would be to
build your wardrobe around rough,
comfortable, and serviceable lines.
for instance, when you start out on
a sight-seeing jaunt on the continont
you'll need some shoes that can take
the knocks, maybe a pair of com-
iortable slacks, and one of the solid
.omfort jackets, of shetland, gabar-
dine, or tweed.
On the way over, formal wear is
an important part of clothes worn

on shipboard. There is a great deal
of favor shown for mess jackets foi
these occasions, or if you're just go-
ing to stroll around the deck at nigh;
a white linen suit is indicated.
All this is supposing you'll be is
the temperate climes, but just in cas(
of "unnatural weather," as the:
would say in California, a topcoat i:
of course indispensible. Camel's hai
still is leading the field in this branch
with tweeds close behind. Other thar
the above, you can just take what yol
need for comfort and feel sure thai
you'll be properly prepared for what-
ever-may come up. Don't forget the
flannels and sweaters for deck sports.
