Natural Beauty Of German Landscape Remains

Old Landmarks Of Paris
Lure American Student
Travellers To Capitpl
For the traveler who wishes to
escape the hurly-burly of American
life, a trip to France via the Panama
Canal, Hawaii and India on a slow
moving cattle boat with plentiful
stopovers at little-known ports offers
the only solution.
The average Frenchman takes his
politics more seriously than the Daily
editorial writers. It is almost im-
possible to sit down at a cafe and
not discourse violently on the Pre-
mier's latest move. In order to
safeguard your digestion, the travel
editor advises a judicious choice of
the cafe which should be in the quar-
ter of the city which represents your
opinions.
However the forewarned traveler
may with persistence get to see the
classical views of Paris. There are
accommodations with a wide price
range. In the little French hotels,
living quarters are inexpensive and
kept scrupulously clean. The Ameri-
can Express office, where English is
spoken, tickets bought for the Folies-
Berger'es, and sight-seeing trips ar-
ranged, is an oasis for Americans.
The Louvre is a few blocks away.
Here, close by, are the Tuileries where
the French children enjoy the daily
marionnette shows. .
Cross the seine into the artists'
quarter, the students' rendezvous, theK
Royalist meeting place-the Left
Bank. On a warm afternoon, one
walks aimlessly along the side of the
river perusing the books found in theY
stalls. In the evening, there is thec
theatre, the nightclub, the cafe and a1
"must" on every traveler's list, thet
Opera.t
Versailles can be reached by a 20-
minute ride in a bus. The Palace isf
coldly clay.Ical but Marie Antoinette's<
Petit Trianon where she played shep-x
herdess is much more appealing rl

This is a village in the Black Forest of Bavaria. Ger many, once a favored land of American visitors, draws
few tourists these days, and this summer will probably see travel there more curtailed than ever. The beauty
of the German countryside remains unchanged, how ever, and tourists will again find scenes like that pic-
tured to reward them for their visit,

Tourists Flock To Riviera
The Island of Ste. Marguerite, near
Cannes on the French Riviera, is at-
tracting many visitors since the re-
cent showing of the educational film*
"The Man in the .Iron Mask."
Here it was that during the reign
of Louis 14th, in this rock-bound
monastery, rising out of the sea, one
of the strangest mysteries of French
history was lived out for 40 years by
the "Man in the Iron Mask," whose
tragic identity still is unknown.
everywhere are as a rule extremely
courteous and patient with the stam-
mering French of the foreigner. They,
have a ready wit and iake interest- I

its marked simplicity. The French I ing conversationalists.

Near East Is
Tourist Mecca
Palestine Likely To Be
Free Of Disturbance
Palestine today is a land of pi-
oneers, a land of vibrant, clashing life
amid a background of ancient glory.
And to the traveler who wished to see
living adventure amid the mysticism
of the Near East, Palestine -is the
place to go.
This summer, it is predicted, Pales-
tine will be quiet--that is, free from
the open Arab-Jewish disturbances
that have created such havoc. But
Palestine is never free from the in-
trigue, from the international com-
plications that are created by the
land's strategic location. It is that
which the traveler can see and, if
he is interested, can enjoy.
The traveler can first see the new
Palestine-the Palestine created by'
the immigrants. He can see the wells
that are so essential to life that have
been dug there, the irrigation ditches
that are so necessary to the land's
agriculture, he can see the verdant
olive and citrus groves. He can see
the cities, the new and the old. He
can see Tel-Aviv, the metropolis
grown overnight by the Jewish im-
migrants. He can see the modern
life-the tall buildings, the high-
ways, the movie palaces, the hospit-
als, the transportation facilities in
this all-Jewish city. He can see
Jaffa, the city of the Arabs, the an-
cient and now modern port, by which
Palestine is chiefly linked to the out-
side world. The traveler can visit
Jerusalem, the "holy city" of three
religions. He can see the new city
and then only a few steps away go
back into biblical days into the an-
cient section with its oriental streets
and houses, its bazaars and its dis-
cord.

Avignon Popes
Patronized Art
Their Palace Is One Of
Old World's Beauties
High above the strong, swift tide
of the Rhone, at Avignon in southern
France, there stands the Palais des
Papes, the most magnificent and im-
posing structure of its kind in the
world. Built in the XIVth century,
most of it during a period of 25 years,
with the walls 13 feet thick, this
awesome fortress - palace - cathedral
was for nearly 70 years the papal
throne and from it during that time
there reigned seven French popes, all
of whom were the chief patrons of art
throughout France during that cen-
tury.
Clement V
The first of the Avignon popes was
Clement V, born at Bordeaux, and
later archbishop there. Through him
the Gothic choir of the St. Andre's
Cathedral at Bordeaux, and the Ca-
thedral of St. Bertrand-de-Com-
minges were built. His successor, John
XXII, built, or helped to build, the
most beautiful bridge of the Middle
Ages at Cahors, where he was born.
Benedict XU Begins
The building of the Palais des
Papes was really begun by Benedict
XII and finished 25 years later by
Innocent VI, after Clement VI had
added the beautiful conclave gallery,
the Pontifical Chapel and the Au-
dience Chamber, as well as rebuild-
ing the church of his former abbey,
La Chaise Dieu, in the Forez moun-
tains. Here he also built his own
magnificent monument.
Avignon is within a few miles of
the French Riviera and accessible to
the many medieval Roman towns of
southern France, all of which present
a never-ending pleasure to the travel-
ler. ;
