THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. THURSDAY, SEPT. 14, 1939. LIVE FOR 161 Jl DAY Several Thousand Young Americans Are Traveling under New Idea This Year By SAM JACKSON (AP Feature Service Writer) SAN FRANCISCO—Dollar-a- day vacations were enjoyed by several thousand young Americans this summer as the result of an idea imported from Europe. They furnished their own locomotion—chiefly bicycling or hiking—and spent their nights | at Youth Hostels. The cost of < putting up at a hotel was 25 cents a night, plus 5 cents for fuel. There are now 203 such hostels in the United States. All ire In scenic or historical re- j gions and are organized into j "loops." Hostels are 15 or 20 miles apart. j The idea is that the traveler i can cover this distance in one day afoot or on a bicycle, or, in rare cases, on horseback or in a canoe. Vacationists who want to whiz through 300 miles of scenery in a day via auto- | mobile are distinctly not wel- i come. I New chains of hostels this year have been set up In Missouri, eastern Iowa, Indiana, and West Virginia.. There is a complete chain of hostels, for the first time, running from Valley Forge. Pa., to Montreal. Youth hostels originated in Europe. There are 4,500 in 20 countries. The idea was brought to the United States five years ago by Isabel and Monroe Smith, who formerly were scout executives. A Non-Profit Scheme This couple set up the first hostel in Northfield, Mass. The first loop was in New England. Today the movement is organized into the American Youth Hostels, Inc., a non-pro- tflt organization and is run by a distinguished board of governors headed by Dr. Mary E. Woolley, former president of Mt. Hplyoke college. The nation is divided Into eight administrative regions. Hostels are multiplying. In \ 1838, there were 26,498 overnight guests. East of the Mis- j sissippi, 80 percent of these arrived by bicycle, while in the west hikers and' cyclists were evenly divided. Fifty-four percent were girls, 48 percent boys. And what is a hostel? It can be anything from a specially-built rustic lodge to a schoolhouse, just so it provides adequate, separate quarters for men and women and measures up to "certain standards in sanitation, cooking facilities, etc. A large number of hostels are rural homes, where house, porch or barn provides ample bunk room. All are under control of "house parents"—normally the owners of the house —and are sponsored by a local citizens' committee. Sing for Entertainment Blankets are furnished and food is bought locally, but the hostelers carry a linen sleeping bag, tableware and toilet articles. Drinking is forbidden, smoking discouraged. A wholesome sing-song is the usual evening entertainment and the curfew is 10 p. m. A typical hostel accommodates 10 men and 10 women, and persons "from 4 to 94" may use It. People of high school and college age, however, are at present the greatest hostel- ers. The Smiths, who are still executive heads of the movement and operate out of Northfield, accent the desirability at hosteling in distant parts of the United states and abroad. This Interchange of scenes and interest among the youth of the world, at low cost, is to them a major attraction and justification of the movement. AT THE FAIR obtain each number of the winning ticket. In other words, if the wheel should turn up a "3" on its first spin, all ticket numbers other than those beginning with a "3" should be ! discarded but not until the j winner has been officially de- I clared to be on the grounds. I If not on the grounds, another I number will be drawn.

(^)—A prisoner captured by Sheriff George Rkhart had a set of burglar's tools in his possession, with a bottle that appeared to be filled •With nitroglycerine. The bottle remained in the sheriff's office for 24 hours while Officers speculated about its contents. One of them suggested the sheriff should send it to chemists for an analysis. "I know a quicker way to find out about it,' 1 said the sheriff. And he took it to a remote spot, attached a can, lighted the fuse and sped away to watch results. In a moment the stuff exploded, blowing a hole four feet deep and four feet wide In the earth. 43 99':. Marshall Field 15'ii Masonlte Corp ...
