Vacationers abroad are looking to the Soviet Union to supply the thrills of travel lacking in the beaten-track countries.

Intourist rates existing before the dollar went off gold have been retained in dollars for 1934. All-inclusive travel service is offered at $15 per day First Class; $8 per day Tourist Class and $5 per day Special Class.

I’m not much of a skier, but I wouldn’t mind driving that little bus around for a while. Travel agent is one of those jobs that I tend to have stereotyped as female in my head. I guess it used to be mostly men, or I’m just wrong.

AS LITTLE AS $39.50 A WEEK FOR HOLIDAY LIVING IN SWITZERLAND

from Skiing to Sightseeing

Expert, novice—or onlooker—it’s as much fun to watch as to ski yourself. Learn to ski—or hire a horse-drawn, bell-tinkling sleigh and. bundled in fur blankets, explore the trails. Come evening, gather by the fire, comparing adventures with gay international vacationists!

They Travel To Keep Motorists Posted (Apr, 1940)

They Travel To Keep Motorists Posted

LIVING like gypsies in their own trucks, signpost crews of the Automobile Club of Southern California have erected 500,000 signs of 125 types in their area. They cover 200,000 miles a year, posting 50,000 signs annually to keep abreast of changing road conditions. Often the crews are gone from headquarters ten days at a time, sleeping in beds which swing down from the roofs of their trucks and cooking on gas stoves which slide out onto the back platform.
