Small hamlets are numerous, us-

Copenhagen, capital of Denmark, isl
the home of the world'famous Jen-

numerous stores there. Though a
city the size of Baltimore, it retains e
its old-world qualities combined with{
the modern. It is a city of 400,000
bicycles, with bicycle traffic predomi-.
nant over automobiles.
Copenhagen has its famous statues,
parliament and royal palace, its old
sections, but combined with this
are the modern cooperative homes,<

bination of modern with the tradition
of the past to be found in Scandi-

Fertile Plains Abound
Sweden resembles parts of ther
United States in its landscape. Inr
the south are flat fertile plains that
stretch as far as the eye can see, witht
red wooden barns and farmhousese
scattered over the land. To the north
are great lakes and forests resembling
northern Michigan, while in the far
north are the mountains.
Sweden also has an atmosphereC
of tranquility and quiet prosperity.

How many - when hearing "On I
the Beach at Bali-ali" - have not
been intrigued by the 'hought of a
visit to Bali, the "only true paradise
left on 'earth?"
Or perhaps this song conjures up
only visions of the natives loveliness,
dreamy-eyed maidens who sing love'
songs under blue skies - and lends
little plausibility to the existence of
such a "heaven on earth.
Bali is, however, a very real place,
and is deservingly called the "pearl
of the South Seas." Bali is not often
considered suitable for the neophite
who is planning a very limited trip,
but for the seasoned traveler who is,
in search of real natural beauty and
tranquility, it is the ideal vacation
spot.
Bali is located in the South Seas
immediately east of Java island and
is part of the Netherlands Indies. It
is small, of volcanic origin and of ex-
cellent fertility because of the ac-I
cumulated volcanic ash.
One will first become acquainted
with Bali in the harbor of Buleang,
which is particularly impressive early
in the morning. Anchored a short
distance from shore a colorful sight
will meet ones eyes-row upon row
of Dutch style houses in contrast with
others of steep-thatched roofs.
Buleang is too much like a typical
European city, and it is not until
one gets deep into the countryside,
away from the artificialities of mod-
ern living, that the magnificent scenic
beauty strikes with full force. Ameri-
can automobiles are available for the
trip to the interior.
Naturally a tropical island like
Bali grows a wide variety of fruits,
flowers and trees, some known to
Western eyes, while others are as
strange as an umbrella on a sunny
