The Gold Rush, as seen by a travel agent. It doesn't look quite like any trip you'd take. But we do bring it up for a good reason-too many people never think to use a travel agent. It may not even cost to use one. Or if it does, it's never much: a few telegrams, phone calls, etc. That's because a travel agent gets his commissions from airlines, ship companies, railroads, hotels, car rent als and the like. You almost always pay the same prices on these whether he sends you or you send yourself. A travel agent can guide you through the maze of travel plans being offered this time of year. He knows the best hotels, shop ping, restaurants and entertainment, for what you want to pay. (Lots of times even less than you thought you'd have to pay.) He'll tell you what to take, what not to take. And when the taking's best. And when last year's great place becomes this year's social disaster, there are two ways to find this out. The travel agent is the easy one. If you're wondering why we've done all this explaining about the travel agent, it's because we can fly you to any of 50 cities in the United States, Canada and Mexico-and if a travel agent handles the details, you'll get the best of any one you choose. American Airlines ... still others will be gladto take you."
