Perth Takes
'Light' Honor
Australia’s city of Perth,
which was a city of lights for
Astronaut John Glenn on the
night of February 20, has a
more enduring reputation for
light—“sunniest city in Aus
tralia."
National Geographic, citing
Perth’s eight hours of sunshine
daily, points out more of its
charms.
Bathing beaches fringe the
Swan river within the city lim
its, and ocean beaches rim a
surf-slapped coast near by.
Sea breezes from the Indian
Ocean 12 miles away give Perth
a Mediterranean climate.
At the foot of the city’s front
lawn, a graceful bend of the
Swan forms a quiet bay. An
early Dutch explorer named;
the river after its black swans,;
which until then had been con
sidered mythical birds.
Fifty Parks
Perth boast some 50 parks and
gardens. Rustic bridges lead to
gardens banked in early summer
with blue Leschenaultia and
red-and-green kangaroo paws,
the state flower of Western
Australia.
Thousand-acre King's Park,■
a virgin woodland on the sum
mit of Mount Eliza, overlooks
the city’s modern buildings.
Heights of the Darling Range, a
year - round playground, mark
the eastern horizon.
As capital of Western Aus
tralia, Perth administers an
area of 975,920 square miles,
more than three and a half
times the size of Texas.
Founded in a Hurry
Perth’s founder, British Capt.
James Stirling, was in a
hurry to perform the deed in
1829. It was a time of great
international rivalry, and he
had heard rumors that both
French and American ships in
the vicinity were planning to
land at the pleasant site and
stake out a claim.
Early settlers from England
had to bring money or its
equivalent in goods to obtain
land. One pioneer found he
could not exchange his grand
piano for a piece of land, so he
left it to rot on the beach.

that nearly 90 per cent of

' Here's Enticing Call
To See America First
A book to bring out the most
extreme wanderlust in anyone
smitten with a feel for Ameri
can history is this new one by
the National Geographic Society
subtitled “Touring Our Land
marks of Liberty.”
A companion volume to
“America’s Wonderlands,” it is
lavishly and lovingly illustrat
ed (463 of the 676 illustrations
are in color, and it has 38
maps), as one has come to ex
pect of Geographic products.
With the intent to “capture
the heart, spirit and stirring
traditions of America in terms
of the places where the great
events occurred,” the book takes
the reader and armchair trav
eler across and up and down
America, from Maine to Hawaii,
and from Alaska to Cape Ca
naveral, the newest of America’s
historylands.
From those who may have
always been D. C.-bound, to
those who have crossed the
country, there are pictures of
something probably seen—from
the C&O Canal, with a spring
picture which makes you want
to get out there and start hik
ing, to one of the Durango-
Silverton narrow-gauge rail
way, which makes you want to
start hunting tourist maps and
checking the travel budget
again.
Landmarks of the Revolu
tionary and Civil Wars are
treated in two outstanding
chapters the latter makes
even that over-written occasion
seem vivid again.

Wirth says:
“The representative land
marks covered in this book tell
the story not just of statesmen
and military heroes. Here you
will find the blacksmith, farm
er, merchant, frontier woman.
America’s Historylands has
been organized to show how
our people lived and struggled,
and to make clear the meaning
of what they did.”
