CENTS LEFT OVER:
'Grand Tour' of Europe
Can Be Done for $1,314
By MARY RUTTER
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - (/P) -
Thinking about a trip abroad and
wondering if you can afford it?
You can do the "grand tour"
now at a cost of about $29.00 a
day if you are careful.
I HAVE just returned from a
44-day trip through England,
Scotland, France, Switzerland and
Italy. It cost me $1,314.18.
In return, I got a. swell sun-
tan, some priceless photos, a lib-
eral education and enough mem-
ories to last me well through the
rocking chair era.
I had just 29 cents in my purse
after I paid off the taxi at home.
The rest of my bank account had
been disbursed as follows:
$338.00-round trip tourist-class
$703.96-Hotels, meals, trains,
sightseeing trips, entertainments.
$134.00-Gifts and souvenirs.
An open meeting to plan a cam-
paign for the extension of the
52-20 program for veterans, will
be held under.the auspices ofthe
Young Progressives at 7:30. tonight
at the League.

days in Edinburgh, nine days in

on-Avon, and the lovely English

The French National tourist of-

ranges from $2.00 to $10.00 for

cost from $2.50 to $3.50. Like a
hot of tourists in France, I us-
ually found that the elusive "room
with bath" had already been tak-
en, and that my bath was "down
