AYH Permits
Inexpensive
Excursions
European Summers
Now Easily Accessible
For Many 'Roughers'
By TAMMY MORRISON
A BIKE, an American Youth
Hostel pass and determination
are all that is needed for a youth
hastelrvacation in Europe this
summer.
American Youth Hostels, an or-
ganization which has branches in
all large cities, sponsors bike trips
throughout Europe. Possession of
an AYH pass, costing about a dol-
lar, can be obtained at any AYH
office. It entitles the holder to
stay at any hostel in Europe for
about fifty cents a night.
Most hostels are very simple, but
clean. Some are located in old
castles or houses of historical in-
terest. The traveler sleeps in his
own sleeping sack on a straw
mattress.
Some hostels provide food, while
at others, the hosteler buys and
prepares his own. Each group as-
sumes part of the house-keeping
duties by cleaning up before they
leave in the morning. The hostel
usually has a curfew, 10 p.m. After
a day's pedaling, everyone is just
about ready for bed at that time
anyway.
HOSTELS, in many cases, are on
the edge of a town or fairly
far away from local places of in-
terest. They must be approached
under foot or bicycle power, never
by car. European plumbing has its
unmodern side, although this is
not always the case.
Hostels are very popular with
European students. And it is some-
times necessary to obtain advance
reservations.
For those who prefer to travel
With organized groups, AYH has
mapped out package tours under a
trained leader.- The price quoted
for each tour covers transporta-
tion from the sailing point, food
and lodging.
This summer, three co-ed groups
of about 10 people will cover
northern Europe ($675), central
Europe ($650) and southern Eur-
ope ($745). All the tours take 11
weeks.

PLUGGING world travel in the
United Nations the United
States wants the UN and its mem-
bers to give more encouragement
to travel as a help to all countries
in making a living.
President Dwight D. .isenhower
is putting his weight behind this
policy. It ties ii with his campaign
for lowering barriers to interna-
tional trade.
The subject will come up in the
spring session of the UN Economic
and Social Council, scheduled to
begin Tuesday.
In a paper prepared for the
meeting, the United States delega-
tion says travelers from 41 coun-
tries spent the equivalent of $2,-
450,000,000 outside their native
lands in 1953, which is more than
the yearly value of the world's
trade in wheat and 31 per cent
higher than the travel figure for
1950.

The United States earned more
than any other nation in the 1953
travel trade, the latest year for
which figures are available.
FOREIGNERS spent 527 million
dollars in the United States
that year, a 34 per cent increase
over 1950. Canada was the second
highest earner at 309 million, an
increase of 21 per cent. Mexico was
third, increasing its tourist reve-
nue by 26 per cent to 302 million
dollars in 1953.
On the other side of the Atlan-
tic, the United Kingdom leads the
parade with 246 millions earned in
1953, up 43 per cent over 1950. Ger-
many jumped 306 per cent from 32
million in 1950 to 130 million in
1953. France slid the most, its
trade falling 34 per cent from 185
million to 122 million.
