fiLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURreit , K7TO3P5, Travel Now, Pay Later, Only By JAMES FLOWERS NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — Rail, air, bus lines and hotels are going all out this year with ed rates and other extras—including installment plan travel—to woo the modest-budget•d summer vacationer. And they are looking for a boom season which may top anything they ever experienced. lowest possible," says an offical oi the nation-wide Greyhound Bus Lines. "However, bus travelers can save 10 percent with a roundtrip ticket And our weenked excursions offer sharply reduced fares for the fellow with the short, short Pan American Airways, for example, -recntly introduced a "Pay Later Plan" —10 per cent down and up to 20 months to pay the air travel within reach of the aver- ag man. Sample round-trip from New York: A two - week tour of London, Paris, Rome and the Riviera lor 962 down and 12 monthly payments of 168.97. Scandinavian Airline* also ha* an "on-the-cuff" arrangements for European vacations that even in- cludta cash lor shopping. It feature* a "Signature Travel Plan" with no deposit, no down payment and 34 months to pay. Scandinavia says your signature alone is enough for the ticket—if your credit is good. Trans World Airline is prepared to arrange anything from a student seminar to Geneva to a tiger hunt in In&a with their sky tourist flights. TWA officials say Spain and Portugal are among the best travel buys in Europe right now because of the dollar exchange in those countries. 1 '. * * * One thinr that U giving travel agencies and carriers a shot in the ami* the reduction of federal tax on transportation to 10 per cent. Right now most airlines are enjoying a 33 per cent increase \ "in passenger traffic over 1953,, and "they are anxious to see the travel boom continue through the sum- vacation in mind. We're looking for a booming travel business this summer." So is everyone else in the business- mer months. For instance. National Airlines is offering half-fare family plans between New "York, Miami and Cuba on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as do many domestic lines. Eastern Airlines has long featured reduced rate night air coach flights to Florida points with combination "package" va- catios at palatial resort hotels. Resort Airlines has reduced the prices of winter flights from New York to the Caribbean area up to 40 per cent, and the new rates are approximately 15 per cent under last summer's prices. These all-expense "flying house- party" air cruises in elude hotels, meals and sightseeing. Resort calls it "flightseeing" around the islands and plugs the fact that lower altitudes and leisurely schedules mean more to see. * * * Since hotels and their facilities are usually the basic attraction for the vacationer, inn-keepers around the country have been sending out attractive lures for weeks now to entice the summer holiday trongs. ( Swank, oceanfront establishments i at Miami Beach have already slashed winter rates, and many of them are throwing in meals and entertainment with the day's lodging. In Washington, D. C., a tourist mecca the year-around, the Willard Hotel has a family plan that features no charge for children under 14 when they occupy to same accommodations with their parents. The Shoreham has a similar plan. During July and August, the Conrad Hilton Hotel in Chicago offers a $10-a-day special for room, breakfast and a special daily attraction such as a reserved seat for Cine- rama or a major league baseball game. The nation's railroads also have some choice travel buys for vacation bargain hunters. The nine railroads serving New Yark City recently established summer cut- rate schedules for families who want to come to New York from any point in the U. S., either first class or coach. • V * Sample round-trip fare for a man, wife and three children aged 15, 10 and three years offered by the Pennsylvania Railroad; first I class passage (.berth extra) from! St Louis $209.25 —a saving of $107. Western railroads like the Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Burlington and Northern Pacific also feature the family plan fares and other extras such as escorted tours. The Seaboard Airline Railroad and the Atlantic Coast Line are plugging "package vacations" to Florida at the "lowest fares ever/' "We don't have summer rates because our fares are already the 'Carolyn' Is Popular LORIS, S. C. (£*)—Carolyn James, llth grade Loris High School student, was elected Loris "Future Farmers of America sweetheart."
