Moderate rates on a luxury ship-- GEORGE WASHINGTON STAND DOWN at the Battery some day and watch the George Washington com ing up the Bay. Three thousand miles of Atlantic behind her and looking as if she had just been launched. Nearly 24,000 gross tons and moving like a yacht. People who sail on this ship to Europe again and again are mostly those who like to travel fast without ever seeming to, who like refined not gaudy surroundings, and those who are critical of cookery and too experi enced to take chances when it comes to long distance travel. On the George Washington, smoothly running elevators supplement beautiful stairways. Wherever possible, Colonial win dows replace portholes. There are prome nade decks, smoking rooms, lounges, barber shops and a gymnasium. Rates are most reasonable. Firstclass from $210;second from $136.25 and TouristThird from $97.50. Under the Stars and Stripes Besides the George Washington, the United States Lines operate the Leviathan, most famous ship in the world, the America, largest of all Cabin liners, the Republic, the famous cruise ship, the President Harding and President Roosevelt, the fastest Cabin ships on the Atlantic. * * * Regularsailingsfrom NewYorktoCobh (Queens town), Plymouth, Cherbourg, Southampton and Bremen.
