VERDUN The Heart of American France Experienced travelers, especially those aware of the unprecedented condi tions today, know that Verdun is the center for those who wish to see the battle front, especially the vital Argonne-Meuse and St. Mihiel-the two points where American valor and military genius showed forth most splen didly. Verdun is the one point from which to radiate. The one way to be comfortable in Verdun today is through membership in a Raymond-Whit comb tour; for we have secured the only comfortable, modern, sanitary quarters in Verdun itself for our tour-members. This makes it possible for us to offer "The Best in Travel" even on our journeys to the scenes of the war's mightiest struggles, where war's wounds still show, where pilgrims may pay homage to American valor, where the student may get the greatest object-lessons in all history. Raymond-Whitcomb Tours European Tours, including or omitting the battlefields, leave every week or oftener; last from six weeks to four months; wide range of interest-France and Belgium, the Riviera, French Alps, Chateau Country, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Holland, Algeria, and Tunisia. Other Tours to California,Pacific Northwest, Alaska, South America, Japan-China, and Round the World. SEND FOR BOOKLET DESIRED RAYMOND & WHITCOMB CO.
