Always Up to Date As Timely as Your Newspaper A New Kind of Atlas EACH day we read in our newspapers of great, epoch-making events in various parts of the world. Out of the chaos following the war new nations are born-a distant bit of ter ritory like the Shantung Peninsula or Fiume suddenly becomes the storm center of conflicting claims that threaten a world crisis. Everywhere a new order is being created. The map of the world has been remade. Today we are living in a NEW world-a new II world that you have Never seen! Try This Interesting Little Test As you read your newspaper today, note the references to places at home and abroad. Then try to visualize those places as they appear on the map. Can you form a clear idea of just where each place is located? Can you name the adjacent places? If the place named is a city in the United States, can you enu merate the States bordering on the State in which it is situ ated? Or if a foreign place is mentioned, can you draw a rough outline of the country ? Try, for example, to sketch the Shantung Peninsula, or the Dalmatian Coast, which has been brought into the limelight through the con flicting claims upon it of Italy and the Jugo-Slavs. Could you make an outline of Germany as defined by the Peace Treaty, indicating what territory has been lost and how it has been disposed of?
