reasonable as it was in 1928-1929, ac-j
cording to Prof. Arthur S. Aiton of
the history department. In boom
years the peseta was 16 but the lat-
est exchange rates quote it at 13.4.
In addition to this favorable ex-
change'rate, Spain offers another ad-
ventage in her automobile roads

under the direction of James E.
Lcugh, former dean of men at New
York University, who has been the
leader in this field of education for
'he past eight years.
The faculty will be made up of
men from colleges and universities#
throughout the country, and the stu-
dent body will be enrolled from un-
dergraduates in all parts of the
United States.
As in all universities, athletics
will play an important part in stu-
dent life. The ship will be equipped
with a gymnasium and swimming
pool, and contests in various sports
will be scheduled with teams of Ha-
waii, China, Japan, and other coun-
tries visited.

intimate trip than is possible by

An ideal trip to Spain can be made
by way of France. Landing at Le
Havre or Cherbourg one should first
visit Normandy, Brittany, and the
Loire country. P r o f e s s o r Aiton
stressed the desirability of approch-
ing Paris through the provinces, oe-
cause much of the flavor of the trip
is lost if one goes directly to the cap-
ital.
From Paris the trip south may be
made through Nimes, Aries, Avignon,
the Riviera, and across to Carcas-
sonne. From Carcassonne the route
to Spain lies through Barcelona.
From Carcassonne the route to Spain

A circular trip through Spain will
allow the traveler to see the majority
of places of interest. From Barce-
lona one may go down the east coast
to Valencia, Alicante, and Murcia,
then to Granada by way of Elche,
visiting Malaga and Gibraltar. Then
there is Cadiz and finally Madrid.
Before leaving Spain you will prob-
ably wish to visit Toledo, and San
Sebastian. You are again near 'the
border of France and after a glimpse
of the Pyrenees, Pau, and the Basque
country you are ready to go back to
Paris.
Professor Aiton suggests that trav-
elers to Europe this summer pur-
chase all expense paid trips because
of the fluctuating exchange rates.

compared with the view of the crowd.
When the "luncheon interval" or
the "tea interval" interrupts the

see the English at their best descend
and stroll on the playing field or be-

Travel As Aid
To Education
Is Described
People, Customs Of Old
World Help I Study Of
The New, Says Davis
The educational benefits which can
be derived from travel are almost
unlimited, in the opinion of Dr. C.
0. Davis of the School of Education.
Dr. Davis was speaking from experi-
ence, for he has traveled extensive-
ly, not only in this country but in
Ehurope, Asia, and Africa as well.
One of te first things that strikes
the traveler to the countries of the
Near East is the great difference be-
tween the standards of living in these
countries and in our own, Dr. Davis
says. In Egypt especially, beggars
crowd the narrow streets and when
night coies or when they feel the
need of rest they slump down where;
they are and fall asleep. Another
characteristic of Egypt which also
reflects the Egyptian standards of
living are the flies. According to Dr.
Davis, children go around with
swarms of black flies clinging to their
faces without even bothering to brush
the insects off.
Precautions Interesting
To an American who is accustomed
to numerous automobile and train
accidents every year, the precautions
which European railroad take to
prevent such accidents comes as a
pleasant surprise. Every crossing, no
matter how much traffic there is, is
protected by a gate and a watchman.
The more important crossings have
subways for the vehicular traffic, Dr.
Davis said.
Many amusing experiences come
about as the result of trading with
native merchants. The accepted plan
is to make the price high when a
traveler approaches - at least four
or five times what the dealer really
expects to get, Dr. Davis thinks. They
will lower the price to within a rea-
sonable amount of the actual value
and below that they will not go, even
though they loss a sale.
Every Mode of Land Travel
In the narrow streets that are
characteristic of many of the cities
of Egypt and western Asia can be
seen almost every mode of land trav-
el known, except, of course, railroads
or street cars, according to Dr. Da-
vis. Autmobiles follow the pace set
by natives on horseback, muleback,
or even on foot. People carrying
baskets on their heads pass in and
out among the moving traffic and
Dr. Davis says he has yet to see an
accident occur. The unhurried stead--
iness with which everything is done
is wonderful to see, he said.
"There are so many little incidents
which occur on a trip such as we
took (a Mediterranean cruise) and
stick in our memory that it would
take hours to tell of them all," Dr.
Davis said. The things that can be
learned from traveling even for a
short time in a foreign country,
which give us a better understanding I
of the people and customs on the
other side of the world, are really
invaluable in the better understand-
ing of our own country, he said.
