L V y (Author of '7 Was a Teen-age Dwarf, "The Many
Loves of Dobie Gillis, etc.)

Summer vacation is just around the corner, and naturally all of
you are going to Europe. Perhaps I can offer a handy tip or
two. (I must confess I have never been to Europe myself, but
I eat a lot of Scotch broth and French dressing, so I am not
entirely without qualification.)
First let me say that no trip to Europe is complete without
a visit to England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Germany,
Spain, Portugal, Italy, Lichtenstein, Holland, Belgium, Switzer Switzerland,
land, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Po Poland,
land, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia,
Greece, Yugoslavia, Albania, Crete, Sardinia, Sicily, Hungary,
Romania, Bulgaria, Lapland, and Andorra.
Let us take up these countries in order. First, England.
The capital of England is Londonor Liverpool, as it is
sometimes called. There are many interesting things to see im
Londonchiefly, the changing of the guards. The guards are
changed daily. The old ones are thrown away.
Another must while in London is a visit to Buckingham
Palace. Frequently in the afternoons Her Majesty the Queen
comes out on the balcony of the palace and waves to her loyal
subjects below. The loyal subjects wave back at the Queen.
However, they only continue to wave as long as Her Majesty
is waving. This of course is the origin of wave lengths from which
we have derived numerous benefits including radio, television
and the A&P Gypsies.
Be sure also when you are in London to visit the palace of
the Duke of Marlborough. Marlborough is spelled Marlborough,
but pronounced Marlboro. English spelling is very quaint but
terribly disorganized. The late George Bernard Shaw, author of
Jos Boys fought all his hie to simplify English spelling. He
once asked a friend, What does g-h-o-t-i spell? The friend
pondered a bit and replied, Goatee. Shaw sniggered. Pshaw,*?
said Shaw. G-h-o-t-i does not spell goatee. It spells fish. Gh
as in enough, o as in women, ti as in motion.
It must be remembered, however, that Shaw was a vegetarian
which, all in ail, was probably a good thing. As Disraeli once
remarked to Guy Fawkes, If Shaw were not a vegetarian, no
lamb chop in London would be safe.
But I digress. We were speaking of the palace of the Duke of
Marlboroughor Marlboro, as it is called in the United States.
It is called Marlboro by every smoker who knows flavor did
not go out when filters came in. Be sure you are well supplied
with Marlboros when you make your trip abroad. After a long,
tiring day of sightseeing, there is nothing so welcome as a fine,
flavorful Marlboro and a foot bath with hot Epsom salts.
Epsom salts can be obtained in England st Epsom Downs.
Kensington salts can be obtained at Kensington Gardens, Al Albert
bert Albert salts can be obtained at Albert Hall, Hyde salts can be
obtained at Hyde Park, and the crown Jewels can be obtained
