DIFFERENCE IN TIME

United

States and Canada. There is the additional difference in some countries of 24-hour clock times. That is, our I P.M. would be 13 o'clock in such lands. Midnight is 24 o'clock. This use of the clock is usually limited to railway timetables, where it is a decided advantage after one gets accustomed to it.

When it is 12 o'clock Noon, Eastern Standard Time, in New York the time is as follows in the cities as shown below:-

RAILWAYS OF EUROPE

are divided into classes

such as first, second, third and sometimes fourth classes. On the continent the first and second class are mostly patronized but in Great Britain the first and third classes are most popular.

Fares of the first class are more than double the third class while fares for the second class are less than double the third class rates. Special tickets can be obtained by the tourist who is concerned about saving some expenses by making inquiries at the information bureau of the railway people. Tickets such as, "excursion, go-any- where tickets", can be secured at less money. Children's fares differ in each country.

MOTOR TRAVEL

The motor routes throughout Europe are as excellent as ours, and motor travel has increased rapidly in the past few years. In Switz- erland and Italy routes are listed on the time tables. In other countries hotels will gladly give the traveler detailed information on various routes.

EUROPEAN

HOTELS

Hotels abroad are of several classes. The larger hotels are very much Americanized excepting that they charge higher prices than our American Hotels. However, smaller hotels are much more abundant and in most countries they are good. Travelled persons often prefer them because they are more colorful and cheaper. In England the "temperance hotels" are excellent second class ac- commodations.

Generally, hotels abroad, except for the big ones, have few or no rooms with bath. There is usually a bath on each floor, and charges are about twenty-five cents a person. They have to be ar-

ranged for

to

carry your own supply.

It is customary to look at one's rooms before engaging them, and

bills

are often taclced on to the unknowing tourist's bill. It is usually pos- sible to arrange for one's rooms with meals if so desired. It is a common practice abroad to serve breakfast in the bedroom.

If your itinerary is definite you can save money on hotel bills by purchasing hotel coupons from tourist agencies. When issued by the better known companies they are accepted everywhere in Europe, provided that you have reserved your room in advance. If a change of plans necessitates your cancelling these reservations, do so well in advance.

Pensions are privately conducted lodging houses and they are

found throughout Europe in the tourist regions.

AIR TRAVEL ABROAD

Airplanes run on regular routes between the major European cities. As with trains and buses, tickets for airplane travel are easily obtained for you through your hotel or tourist agency. Air time-tables are obtainable in all large tourist offices, arranged ac- cording to routes and companies. About 30 pounds of free baggage is allowed and when crossing international boundaries, passports and vises are required to be in readiness. On long journeys meals can be obtained at the aero- dromes en route, or luncheon baskets can be obtained for the trip.
