UNIVERSITY TRIP AROUND WORLD NEXT YEAR IS SURE

MANY RECEPTIONS PLANNED IN 30 NATIONS TO BE VISITED

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University Trip Around the World, which is to start from New York October 2, 1926, with 450 students and a faculty of 50 selected from all parts of the country, visiting about 30 foreign countries, is now definitely assured, according to information from the University Travel Association, 11 Broadway, New York City.

The latest announcement of importance is the appointment of Ex-Governor Henry J. Allen of Kansas, to be on the faculty, in charge of Journalism. Governor Allen is an extremely practical newspaper man and a man of international standing.

Reception in Java

All of the foreign countries are cooperating, and the latest addition to the list is the news that the Governor General of the Dutch East Indies has cabled His Excellency, Mr. A. C. D. deGraeff, Netherlands Minister in Washington, that he will make all necessary preparations for the reception of the party in Java, and that he has designated Mr. A. T. Keen, Director of the Prince Hendrik School of Batavia, to join the vessel at Manila so that students will have the benefit of his lectures and personality for about one week before arriving at Java. Mr. Keen was educated in England, and is one of the prominent educational men of the Far East. His appointment by the Dutch East India Government indicates a sincere desire to cooperate enthusiastically.

Athletics With Japanese

Similar arrangements have been made with many other countries. Mr. Ogden Hammond, newly appointed ambassador to Spain, has agreed to entertain the group at Madrid. A special performance of the opera at Paris, athletic meets with Japanese colleges and debates are only a few of the diversions planned. In practically every country, contact will be made with the native students. Approximately 45 percent of the time will be spent ashore.

A comfortable liner is being fitted out with laboratories, classrooms, library, gymnasium, and all possible facilities for education. The curriculum includes courses in astronomy, biology, botany, the classics, economics, English, foreign trade, foreign languages, geography, geology, government, history, international relations, journalism, mathematics, navigation, psychology and sociology. Dean Lough of New York University and Dean Howes of Williams will be in charge. Academic credits will be issued by New York University.

Health and recreation are provided for by a medical staff, an athletic director and the usual extra-curriculum activities, in order to relieve the monotony a long sea voyage. The entire expense of the eight months trip is $2500 per student. A limited number of preparatory school boys will be included in the roster, and the boat will dock at New York in June, 1927, in ample time for them to take college entrance examinations prepared for on the trip.

Additional information may be obtained from Cornelius DuBois '26, at Grays 4, W. C. Fordyce '26 in Grays 5, or the University Travel Association, 11 Broadway, New York.
