Lure Of Upper
Michigan Calls
Travel-Minded
Icauty Of Nature's Work
Makes Tourists Linger
In Northern Peninsula-
By CHARLES THATCHER
The grass may always seem green-
er in the other fellow's back yard,
but if you're from Michigan, you
don't have to lean over anyone's
back fence with a wistful look! Mich-
igan has more than her share of
beauty, both man-made and natural.
Everyone knows about the great
automobile center in Detroit, the Uni-
versity here. and the capital at Lan-
sing; but how many know about the
other side of Michigan's appeal-that
side constructed and maintained by
Mother Nature? If you haven't al-
ready come, seen, and conquered, then
the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is
the place for you to see the next time
you feel the call of the open road.

State Highways
Offer Scenery,
Ease Of Travel
By DAN BEHRMAN
State and government highways
radiating to the remotest corners of
the state offer almost unlimited trips
to motor tourists in Michigan, ac-
cording to Prof. Roger Morrison of
the highway engineering department.
Professor Morrison, who once plough-
ed through gravel and mud as head
of the State Highway Engineering
Labratory, also called attention to
the high quality of roads leading to
scenic areas, which receive the bene-
fit of half the state's construction
funds.
U. S. 31 offers an alluring trip to
roving motorists. Running through
the lake resorts, impressive sand dune
areas, and the fruit country, it is
a four lane concrete highway up to
Benton Harbor. From Benton Har-
bor to Petoskey U. S. 31 is the most
popular resort road in the entire
state, where it offers a picturesque
shore drive along Lake Michigan. The
Indian settlement of Cross Village
lies along this route, which stretches
as far as Mackinac.
But Prof. Morrison stands by the
Upper Peninsula as the most fertile
source of scenery and pleasure driv-
ing. He names a 54 mile section of
U. S. 2, from Escanaba to Menomin-
ee, as the "most beautiful road in the
state, with towering forests on one
side, and green bay on the other."
Hiawatha-land, Isle Royal, the rug-
ged Keewenaw Peninsula, and Lake
Gogebic are among the high spots
of Northern Michigan, the nearest
thing in this state to the congestion-
free western areas.
There is also a mass migration to
the tidewater areas of Virginia dur-
ing the spring, Professor Morrison
noted. He recalled a r'ecent trip of
his to Old .Point Comfort, where he
met "half of Ann Arbor" in a local
hotel. Roads in the South have un-
dergone an amazing improvement
since he was forced to send his
wife and year-old baby by train on
a trip to Alabama in 1924.

U.S. Pleasure -*Trips
From earliest years we have heard
of people going abroad for vacations,
or "visiting the Islands," or simply
"vagabonding it over the Continent,"
and we have accepted these rituals as
American convention. United States
citizens used to literally take over
European hotels and resorts, and the
well-peopled boats that traveled to
and from Hawaii were the most de-
sired temporary habitats of the er -
rant crowd.
But war clouds have fogged these
two possibilities more or less out of
the picture. Europe is extremely dif-
ficult to reach, and. of course, un-
desirable for a vacation of rest; and
the mere fact that so much atten-
tion has of late been centered on the
Pacific is an ominous warning to
cautious individuals to remain with-
in the three-mile limit on our west
coast.
Vagabond Americans will answer
the beckonings of the chambers of
commerce on this side of both oceans
this year more than ever. Thus,
instead of the crowd at Paris of Bad-
en-Baden, there will be an influx of
tourists into Rio de Janeiro or Puerto
Rico. And the Scandinavian tours
so popular two years ago will be re-
placed by guided trips to Alaska.
Study of the Peruvian Inca civi-
lization might easily replace Roman
archaeological surveys in world-wide
importance, and the new attention
to promotion of the United States will
undoubtedly call a great many of our
experts in various fields to travel and
study within our borders.
The Louvre may be empty, and the
hills of England may be pock-marked
by shells, but there are equivalents
in this hemisphere for everything
'over there,' and the Americans will
set out to find these this year.

Washington, D.C., the battlefields
of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars,
reconstructed Williamsburg will be
the highlights of he second of the
International Center tours organized
for American and foreign students.
The group will leave Ann Arbor l
and spend the first night of the trip
in Pittsburgh. The second leg of the
trip will be from Pittsburgh to Harris-
burg. the state capital of Pennsyl-
vania.
From Harrisburg the group will
travel through Gettysburg and on to
Washington where they will tour}
government buildings, visit the White
House and Congress in session.
An entire day will be devoted to
excursions to Mount Vernon. and
Alexandria. The next stop on the
trip will be Fredricksberg and the
tour of the Virginia Piedmount.
Richmond, Tappanhanock ,Yorks-
town and Charlottesville will be the
succeeding points of call on the road.
The bus tour will travel the Skyline
Drive through the Shenandoah Na-
tional Park through Winchester and
through the Cumberland Gap.
Via Winchester and Uniontown the
group will circle through Pittsburg
and return to Ann Arbor April 20.
At Richmond the group will see
the Confederate Museum and the
capitol buildings of the Confederacy.
Like the first trip, this tour will
cost $45 and may be arranged through
the Travel Bureau of the Internation-
al Center.

And a word of warning. If you
travel to New York's hinterlands to
visit friends and relatives don't take
a car. Even taxi drivers have been
known to get lost going through
Brooklyn streets and for the stranger
it is practically impossible to get
around. Find out about subway trans-
portation and use It.
In Manhattan, which is called
"New Yawk" by every resident of the
city, is everything which has made
the city famous. There are located
the docks which. are used by the
world's greatest port, there are the
tremendous number of clothing fac-
tories which have made the city not
only the center of the clothing indus-
try, but also the style mart of the
world, and, above all, there are the
places of amusement which make
"The Great White Way" an unf or -
gettable experience.

you begin to see what is in store. Al-
most midway between the Upper and
Lower Peninsulas is historic Fort
Mackinac, frowning upon the Island
where British, French and Indians
battled almost two centuries ago. The
complete absence. of automobiles on
the Island makes it an ideal place to
spend a few weeks if you're-a fugitive
from the hustle and bustle of the
city; and swimming, hiking, tennis
and all the other summer sports will
make a new man of you in no time.
Across the straits and north we go
-to the mammoth Soo docks and
Sault Ste. Marie, the oldest town in
the Peninsula. Under military guard
now, the locks still make a wonder-
ful sight, and the continual parade
of ore carriers going through makes
the effect even more impressive.
Greeley said, "Go West, young
man," and west we shall go. A mod-
ern highway along the shores of beau-
tiful Lake Superior makes it possible
for you to gaze spell-bound at an
inland "stern and rock-bound coast,"
until you arrive at Munising and the
famous pictured rocks.'
South To Manistique
Shall we turn south now? A short
drive will put us in Manistique, where
we can see the crystal clear spring
of Kitch-it-i-kippi.
Thence westward once more to Es-
canaba, in the "Land of Hiawatha."
If you're fortunate enough to hit the
town in the spring, don't fail to go
smelt-fishing, for if you've yearned
for the place where fish might be
literally "dipped" out in nets, Escan-
aba is the place.
To the west is Iron Mountain with
her new skislide, one of the largest
in the world. Reached by peaceful
winding roads through beautiful for-
ests, the slide is one of the most
awesome of man-made sights!
Copper Country Calls
North once more, and we soon find
ourselves driving out onto the Ke-
wanaw Peninsula, gazing out over
Lake Superior again, walking through
the ruins of one of the oldest white
settlements in that part of the coun-
try-Fort Wilkins-and enjoying to
the utmost the incredible beauty of
the Brockway Mountain Drive.
An excursion boat will put you on
Isle Royale in no time, and there is
a place whiereature realty holds
the upper hand, A newly-Built ioose
reserve on the Island adds to the
interest for the city-bred tourist.
We need go no further; you've
probably already decided to spend the
rest of your life in one of the spots
already visited. And well you might!
