5.T Is estimated by the tralllc experts of the great transcontinental railways
that the travel movement westward during the present year, with the
great world's Exposition at San Francisco as the goal, will be the great
est In all history. There are but few persons anywhere who have not
felt the longing to visit California some time, nnd with the attraction of the
world's greatest and possibly Its last universal Exposition to draw them west
ward those who go traveling. In 1015 will "see America first," with San Fran
cisco sfs an objective.
Some Indication of the Interest tnkpn In the Panama-Pacific International
'Exposition Is found In the pre-Exposltlon attendance, the greatest In the entire
'history of expositions, amounting to an average of 10.000 persons a day. These
visltprs carried away with them to all parts of the country and of the world
accounts of the beauties And the marvels they had seen.- and as a result the
remark has become, common throughout the United States and abroad, "it's
:not n case of 'Can I afford to visit the Exposition?' but 'Can 1 afford to
MISS It?; "
The Panama-Pacific International Exposition has more foreign national
pavilions than any exposition ever held this In spite of the European war.
Xo exposition ever was situated as this one is where.such a large' number
ot the scenic wonders of the world can be visited at no Increaso of cost while
n route, going and coming, and it is the only great International Exposition
'to be ready on time! The rates agreed upon by the great transportation
companies, of approximately one-half fare for the round trip, with a ninety
day limit, have never been equaled.
Certainly not In this generation, and probably not for generations to come,
-will eucb an opportunity bo offered to combine In one trip visits to the scenic
wppder 6pots of the continent, with the educatlou and entertainment to be
had -in the dazzling wonderland that has, risen on tbg shore of the Pacific,
