Round the World President Liners sail on regular, fre quent schedule throughout the year. And you may begin your cruise exactly when you choose, from either coast. Leaving New York, these famous, friendly ships make first for Havana and the Panama Canal's old foreign cities; then sail on to California's Los Angeles and San Francisco-and this year, the world's most beautiful world's fair. Beyond the Golden Gate, along the Sunshine Route, Honolulu is their first gay port of call. Then Japan's Yokohama and Kobe, China's Hong Kong, and Manila in the palm-fringed Philippines. So you may go-from one exciting country to another, to the world's most thrilling ports. To Singapore and Penang. Ceylon's Colombo. India's Bombay. To Port Said, Suez and Alexandria in Egypt. To Naples and Genoa in Italy, and France's Marseilles. And finally, home across the south Atlantic to a New New York-with the second of this year's incredible world's fairs.
