GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGIO 1300 pm Sunday WOI Ames BIO pm Tuesday WTAD Qulncy 930 pm Thursday WSUL Cltj 910 pm Saturday Americans on the Move pEOPLE with wanderlust sometimes its called itchy feet apparently havent been told that were in an economic recession Figures from the steamship and air lines indicate that despite what has been ad vertised as a business slumpin our broad land foreign travel this summer is at an alltime high The same general situation prevails here at home too Peo ple are on the go as never be fore Hotels motels service sta tions and all other businesses which cater to the traveling pub lic are enjoying a tremendous season Visitors to our national parks in the current year are expected to total half of our nations adult population although let me hasten to addthese park visitors are by no means limited to adults The Worlds Fair in Brussels has proved a mighty magnet for European travel Opinion is di vided right down the middle on whether the American exhibit is good or bad Curiously enough Americans are most critical of it The people of other lands ad mire us for not trying to demon strate how superior we are to the rest of the world which is precisely what the Kremlin sought to supercolossal ex hibit AMERICAN VISITORS to Rus sia this year are expected to to tal something in excess of 3000 Last year the figure was about 2000 I was one of them Next year if the Kremlin remains on speaking terms with the free world the total could very well be 5000 If Khrushchev turns surly as seems presently to be his disposition the gates may be tightly closed Most of these Yankees behind the Iron Curtain dont remain long enough to acquire anything like a full comprehension of the Soviet system But a fortnight or even less is long enough to prove to anybody that there is no hatred for Americans among rank and file Russians that the stress es between our countries are created by those vile boodlers who bite and gouge for political survival behind the red walls on Kremlin Hill For most of my adult life I have operated on the belief that its more fun to travel than it would be to be rich The dollars I have put out in visiting the far places of our planet have always seemed to come back to me in dividends more abundantly than any other cash I ever invested except in support of school and church This little commentary is designed for others who may be possessed of this same foolish doctrine ONE OF THE FIRST questions that confronts a person after se lecting a destination is whether the trip shall be made by air or water assuming of course that its some place not accessible by rail or motor So far as I am con cerned comfort and safety dont enter into this decision to any great extent Theyre present in both forms of travel Mishaps are the rare exception So how about a little of both A voyage there and a flight back The next question that arises is how much and what kind of luggage to take The limits are higher for rail and water trans port than for air travel But Ive never found any trouble living within the aerial allowance In fact Ive always ended up re gretting that I brought along so many unnceded shirts On my last extended jaunt around the world in three months with 31 countries on my itinerary I had a weight limit of 44 pounds With about eight pounds out for my highly essential type

moons in orbit performed smoothly during its first 48 hours The launching by the amazing ly reliable JupiterC rocket last Saturday was so successful in fact that the 3843pound tube probably will be
