Everything you want in Suppose you could have, in a Win te single place, all the delightful elements that go to make up a winter vacation... Planning this ideal playground, you'd probably start out with sunshine... like that of Southern California's healing, sub-tropical winter days. You'd want a seashore... the sun-soaked beaches and blue waters of the mighty Pacific, for example. In contrast, mountains.. .perhaps like the vast Sierra Madre peaks that shelter this Southland's blooming valleys. Sports of course you'd include... every kind, in out of-the-ordinary scenic settings that bring new thrills. Night life and entertainment?... what better answer than Hollywood, new world theatrical center? And the glamour of a foreign land...you can find it in Califor nia's ancient Spanish Missions, the Fiestas, in colorful Old Mexico nearby, or in the mystery and peace of the desert. One secret of Southern California's vacation charm is its varietyof fascinations.. the storied cities and resorts that Los Angeles centers. . .Pasadena, Santa Monica, r* dale, Pomona... scores of others. And they are only 2 2 days from most of America. Come for a glorious vacation. Advise anyone not to come seeking employment lest he be disappointed, but for the tourist the attractions are unlimited.
