^*w^WMiWW~- - ^ IIIf* See the World on the BELGENLAND CRUISE JUST going to countries isn't enough. You must go with a seeing eye - and with knowledge of what to look for. Two suc cessful Belgenland World Cruises over an identical itinerary have given us a definite idea of just how long people like to linger in certain places, just what they want to see, and just when they wish to jump from one country to another. And how pleasant those"jumps"are, aboard the Belgenland-the largest, finest liner that ever sailed round the world. Gay days of sports-swimming, trap-shooting, deck ten nis, shuffleboard. Evenings of dancing, lec tures and plays. Pleasant people - doing agreeable things. Flawless service--antici pating every whim.
