Clothing, documents and health day provide American youth with
requirements often present the inexpensive opportunities to see

most harassing problems for the!
summer traveler.
The tourist to Europe will find
' the climate very similar to that
in the United States, and the same
type of clothing worn. A rain
coat and light, but warm, topcoat
or jacket are part of the neces-
sary equipment.
S* *
LIGHT-WEIGHT spring and
summer clothes, with a light coat
and sweaters for higher altitudes,
are in order for South American
travel. Sports clothes and good
walking shoes are also advisable.
Dress in Hawaii is predom-
inantly informal. Sportswear,
lightweight clothing, swim suits
and comfortable walking shoes
are recommended. And a rain-
coat should not be forgotten.
The climate of Japan resembles
that of the British Isles more
closely than any other country.
The summer is dryer than our
own, and no hotter than a mid-
western summer of the United
States. However, because of the
great length and narrow width of
the island, extremes in tempera-
ture are to be expected.
WHEREVER one travels, it is
advisable to select nylon, orlon,
dacron, seersucker, tie-cloth or
similar non-crushable materials.
Nylon is ideal, as it dries quickly
and needs little or no pressing.
In most cases, casual clothes
for both ship and land wear are
preferable over bizarre styles.
They are also so much more
comfortable for travel.
In the way of luggage, the trav-
eler should avoid taking heavy or
expensive luggage. It is far bet-
ter and more practical to carry
items like medicines in plastic con-
BECAUSE matches are often
scarce and cost extra, smokers
are advised to take cigarette;
lighters. Smokers may also wish
to take along extra cartons of cig-
arettes. However, there are, dif-
ferent restrictions regarding the
amount of tobacco admitted duty
free, ranging from one opened
package in South Africa to a reas-
sonable amount for personal use
in nations such as Panama, Por-
tugal and Egypt.

"FOREIGN Assignment," for
students of journalism and cur-
rent affairs, is led by Prof. Earl
English, Dean of the School of
Journalism of the University of
Missouri. It offers a program of
first-hand contacts with top-
ranking political leaders, editors,
overseas correspondents, officials
of the UN and other international
bodies through Holland, France,
Switzerland, Germany, Denmark,
Sweden and England.

quirements. Evidence of small-
pox innoculation is required be-
fore entry into Europe. Turkey
requires not only smallpox, but
also yellow fever and, cholera
vaccinations if the traveler is
not arriving from Europe.
All the Latin American coun-
tries with the exception of Bolivia,
Peru and Uruguay demand small-
pox innoculations of their tour-
ists. Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador,
Nicaragua, El Salvador and Para-
guay also require good health,
while Nicaragua demands, in ad-
dition, shots against yellow fever.
Innoculation against smallpox is
advisable for entry into Japan and
also shots against typhoid fever
and paratyphoid.
A passport is the only document
needed for entry into Austria,
Denmark, France, Spain, Great
Britain, Ireland, Luxembourg and
Switzerland. Other European coun-
tries require visas, or honor pass-
ports without visas for short per-
iods of time.
The regulations in the Latin
American nations concerning doc-
uments are varied, and range from
only a passport requirement in
Chile and Uruguay to passport or
birth certificate, four pictures, a
letter from an employer stating
that the trip is for pleasure and
a return ticket in Venezuela.
At the present, a passport, visa
and return trip ticket are required
for entry into Japan.
