With 99 political parties, Italy is

doesn’t know what to do with three.
Britains Stuck
But Not Like
Travel Agency
(AP)—Eating like kings and sight
seeing like paupers, 32 British citi
zens are stranded here awaiting
transportation to New Zealand.
They haven’t a penny to spend
—and they may be here for months.
But the travel agency handling
their transportation is paying all
their room and board bills at their
downtown hotel. And meals in Eng
land were never like this!
“Just to have all that eggs and
ham and bacon to eat—that is
enough,” sighed Mrs. George E.
Dunn. “The only snag is, when we
go about town and see all those
lovely clothes . . .”
The 32 reached San Francisco
last Thursday en route to New
Zealand where they plan to settle.
Here, they discovered, there had
been a slip—they had no air res
ervations to continue their trip.
The two scheduled airlines to
New Zealand and Australia were
reported booked up solid through
next April. One liner also serves
New Zealand, sailing from Van
couver, B. C., but it, too, was re -
ported filled for many voyages.
The travel agency, watching the
hotel bills roll up, is praying for a
civil aeronautics board permit that
would allow a chartered plane trip.
(Normally, non-scheduled air lines
cannot carry passengers.)
As British subjects, the travelers
are restricted by their government
to the spending of $12 each during
their days in the United States.
(This is part of England’s move to
build up dollar credits.)
Chairman Chosen
Dr. Waldo Schumacher was ap
pointed as chairman of the schol
arship committee by President
Newburn. fir. Schumacher succeeds
Dr. H. G. Townsend.
Mexico to Canada
Expedition Planned
A continuous hiking trip along
the entire length of the Sierra Ne
vada-Cascade mountain crest from
one border of the United States to
the other is being planned by Jo
seph C. Wampler, archaeologist
mountaineer of California.
Scheduled to leave Campo, a
small community on the Mexican
border, about April 1, 1949, the ex
pedition plans to arrive at the Can
adian border in early October. The
group will need six months to com
plete their 2200-mile journey. The
principal ranges crossed by the
route are the San Bernardino, Si
erra Madre, Sierra Nevada, and
The party will be small, proba
bly ten to fifteen persons. Plans.
have been laid to give considera
tion to those who may wish to join
the group for a month or longer.
Students interested should contact

Ave., Berkeley, California.
