Hampton Is Nations Lowest Reading r The World Around Us Harbor at Sydney Is Rare Sight Number 23 EDITORS NOTE It will be arounrt the world in 80 days for our editor unless unrest In certain areas pre cludes air travel This is Dae in a series of reports ou his experience and By W EARL HALL Australia Whether Sydneys harbor is the most beautiful in the world is a com mon subject for debate among world travelers Other candidates for this distinction include Rio de Janeiro San Francisco and Hong Kong Ive just returned to my room in the Hotel Australia following a trip by harbor ferry from down town Sydney within the shadow of what is described as the worlds largest single arch bridge to Manly Beach best known of this citys several beaches Skyline View In the course of the 10mile trip up the harbor 5 miles each way I inspect ed at close range all of the Sydney claims to fame They include a sky line view com parable with j New Yorks at j the Statue of Liberty numer ous precipitous W EARL HALL cliffs on either Side of the narrow channel a dock area which on this occasion contained the Matsons magnifi cent new liner Mariposa and the Duke of Edinburghs enam eled yacht Im not quite ready to award the palm to Sydneys harbor Can dor compels me to report that there is nothing here that quite matches the breathless beauty of Rios harbor with its Sugar Loaf in the foreground and the cross topped Corcovado which towers above all of the city in the background But that isnt to minimize what I saw today Sydneys harbor most assuiudiy rates among the worlds top half dozen Not Only Asset And let nobody conclude that this harbor is Sydneys only asset The city itself was even more of a revelation to me I was pre pared for its beautiful setting but I wasnt expecting such a large and modern city as came into view when our plane slipped down to a smooth landing this forenoon on an airport within con venient range of the loop district With a population pushing the two million mark Sydney is per haps most comparable with our Philadelphia in size and in gen eral character Its buildings are lofty its streets are wide its store windows are attractive its theater district is at least on a par with Chicagos About the only anachronism in the scene is the ancient trolleypropelled tram to be found on the otherwise beautiful streets Principal Landmark harbor bridge to which I have already made reference is the communitys principal land mark by water and air as well as by land from about any point in the city Its single arch is the height of a 44story building and theres a hightide clearance of 170 feet for ships using the har bor While its probably a bit early to pass final judgment on the people who live in this fabulous place I am ready to grade them A on friendliness toward each other and toward a stranger The question How do I get to such and such a place almost in variably draws this reply pose you let me show Spok en I should add in an accent more British than anything I ever heard in Londons Leicester Square I like this thumbnail description of a typical Australian Hell give you the shirt off his back if youre in trouble and take your gold teeth if hes in
