Millions of them have been learning perforce about the tieography of Europe, Asia and Africa during the past six months. It would not be amiss for them now to add the study of America to their course in political and physical ge ography, This will not be a good year for American travel in Europe. Only those should think of crossing the Atlantic who have clear and definite reasons of a responsible kind for approaching the fringes of the reat war. Travel, however, is not only one of the greatest sources of pleasure, but one of the chief means of education; and it should always be encouraged. As many Americans as possible should re solve that they will know a grtat deal mgre about their own country at the end of the year 1915 than they knew at the beginning. They should take the i ea seriously Irom "The Progress of the World." in the American Review of Reviews for February. ;'ED K NOT, AND P AND TS r!H El H 13 11 11 SEED 0".TS: RaSc'ib'.'J f.f.l .-'.:ri3.
