PERHAPS you know the world is small-that in January there's more than one languorous breeze astir with whispers of forgetfulness. Maybe before this you have looked across a cafe table the Old World has fragranced. But surely you have stifled a yawn at tales of old familiar, tourist-worn paths to winter's sum mer sun. Southern Pacific's invitation to a new January June-land is written in new train service now in effect down the West Coast. It surrounds you with a comfortable bit of the America you know-mod- ern Pullmans, a dining car styled by Southern Pacific-and swiftly speeds you through the newest Old World. Mexico!-the little known, the little understood. A land of mysterious origin and vast antiquity. Still medieval, yet in many ways as new as tomorrow. Come while it is unspoiled. Come before the sightseeing bus crowds out the ancient carriage- (even now the tractor crawls past the oxen and wooden plough). Dine under palms to the music of Old Spain; look out on a sun-filled sea that tumbles white to a lazy shore--before the sign goes up, tour ist conscious, "Por Americano."
