I'm not likely soon to forget Bagdad, Bangkok, Kabul-or forbidden Lhasa. Yet, to me, as an American, few places are as exciting as our own beautiful city of Washington. "One thrill follows another as you tour the almost endless places of interest. Here, you feel the vigorous heart of our nation, and renew your appreciation of our way of life. So, this year of the Sesquicentennial celebra tion, visit Washington. To an Ameri can, there is no place like it!" TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR WASHINGTON TRIP Start it on a B&O train. Enjoy the quiet gliding of Diesel power, and the restfulness of fine cars. And to the pleasures of Washing ton-described by Lowell Thomas-you'll add B&O's delicious food and friendly courtesy.
