Here's The Season To Travel But Travel the Right Way This l» the "I'd like to (jet away from it all" season. Young people arc restlcsi and are yearning for adventure. And why not? The time and tide are absolutely right. Travel often brings with it the responsibility of coping with an adult world, whether you eo to the mountains, ficashore or city, or dive for Pieces of eifrht and other lost treasure in the briny deep. Perhaps this vacation season you'll ride on a train, without the guiding hand of Mom and Pep—to help you order food, to tip for you and to shush you when you feel Biddy. When you travel alone or with companions of your own age, you nre faced with all of these problems at once, and perhaps the puzzled gazes of adult passengers who do not understand your gay- spirit. Some excellent advice that is worth lolling In your diary comes I'rom Ann Elgar Stevenson, co-or- dlnator of service, maintenance and decorations of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway passenger department. Ann, who is young and pretty herself, knows how young people fee! in this predicament. They want to do the right thing, but they want to have fun, too. She suggests the following rules for traveling by train: 1. Dress Inconspicuously. Boys should wear jackets and ties. Well- dressed girls board trains wearing hats, but may taKe them off en route. Dresses with sleeves to the elbow, or longer, are in order. The tailored suit Is perfect for traveling. Neat, dark shoes with closed toes look well even in summer, and stockings should be worn. 2. Young people may feel free to walk through the train, but should be quiet and inconspicuous in their comments and manner, and not "do" the train too many times. 3. If coach and Pullman cars are separated, stay on your own side of the fence. People who pay more tor Pullman passage object to coach passengers taking up space in their lounge cars. The conductor can tell you if your conch has lounge car surroundings you can use. 4. By all means do not sit down in a sleeping cnr room— even briefly—if you have not engaged It for the trip. 5. Most dining car menus include several low-priced items — but not so low, of course, as In counlcr (service. If you can afford to spend $1.50 for a sandwich, dessert and beverage, including tip, you are almost certainly on safe ground In settling at a table lor any meal. If In doubt about prices, ask the steward quietly to fihow you a menu before you Hunter Sims, Jr. Duplicate Bridge League meets at Hotel Noble. Mrs. B. A.
