EUROPEAN TRAVEL IS SUBJECT OF WATT TALK AT P.B.H. THIS EVENING

MOVIES OF GROUP EXPERIENCES WILL BE SHOWN

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Opportunities for inexpensive summer travel in Europe through the Experiment in International Living will be outlined by Donald B. Watt, former personnel director at Syracuse University, in an illustrated lecture at Phillips Brooks House this evening at 8 o'clock. All Harvard and Radcliffe students are invited to attend.

Experiences of American student groups in France, England, Germany, and Austria will be portrayed by a varied assortment of colored moving pictures. Collected over a period of four summers, they present a fairly complete picture of European outdoor life and of the common activities pursued by groups of young Americans.

Founded Four Years Ago

The Experiment in International Living was founded four years ago with the primary aim of furthering international understanding. Operating on a strictly non-profit basis, it is primarily an educational enterprise which attempts to instill in American students a closer appreciation of European life, customs, manners, and ideals.

Each summer several co-educational groups of American students travel to European countries, live in families for three weeks, and enjoy a month of bicycling, camping, and mountain climbing in the company of European young men and women of their won age. One of the main attractions for groups travelling in Germany and Austria is a five-day flatboat trip on the Danube from Line to Vienna.

A recent survey shows that Harvard stands first among the colleges of this country in the number of students who have participated in Mr. Watt's Experiment. Plans for the coming summer will be outlined in full at the meeting.
