Letters From A Wife Abroad
We left beautiful Lugano
yesterday, with much regret-we
were at leisure in that beautiful
Alpine resort town for three
nights and two full days and we
did just as we pleased; we rowed
around on the lake, we hiked up
the mountain sides, we rode up
and down the funiculars both
night and day—Ruth and Pau
line went to the top of Mt. San
Salvator on the funicula—and
we shopped to our heart’s con
tent or should I say to our
franc’s extent! On one of my
hikes I found a little shop tucked
away in one of the hills-the
handerchiefs were too beautiful
to resist so I pinched off some
more of the railroad fare (you
are going to meet me in New
York, aren’t you?) Everyon*
wished that we might have had
one of the five day stops in
After lunch, we were whisked
to the railroad station in hotel,
station wagons where we board
ed an electric train for Lucerne.
Dolly had intended to make this
trip in the buses but some of the
troupers had almost fainted
looking out on the lower slopet
of the Apennines so he hurried

The railroad climbs the lower
lopes of St. Goddard, a moun
tain knot of the Alps, and then
burrows through it in a tunnel
that is nine and hall miles long;
twenty six feet wide and twenty
one feet high—personally I
would have rather seen St. God
dard’s Pass, the most celebrated
of all the Alpine passes, than to

The First Road was probably a
foot-wide track through a barren,
boulder-strewn land where prehis
toric man moved cautiously from
haunt to haunt in search of food,
warmth and lodging.
Acent Later, Indians and other
aborigines blazed trails through wil
dernesses, trails which guided their
users safely from one settlement to
another; to well-stocked lakes and
hunting grounds, t» watering spots
and caves.
After That, man discovered that
certain animals could be useful in
carrying both himself and some of his
goods from place to place.
The Most Important step of all
in establishing transportation routes
was the invention of the wheel. Man

to trek with all hit belongings almost
anywhere he wished to go.
Now The Highway was assum

there could be litlle contact between

Up To The Beginning of the

not too great. But with the develop

vastly new situation.

of such a long tunnel; this tunnel
was begun in 1872, finished in
1880 and the railroad finished
in 1882 although the route was
first used by the Longobardi in
the sixth century. As the train
sped out of the tunnel, we sight
ed “The Wetterhom”, easily re
cognized by its jagged and
sharply pointed shape.
We came into a busy station at
Lucerne-yesterday was some
sort of national holid^sr and
everyone came into town to cele
brate. We ran into another A-
merican tourist group in the
station-of course we were given
a close once over and question
ing: “Where are you from”,
“Who sponsors you?” “How are
you being treated?” We left
them with mouths hanging open
when they learned that it was
just a pleasure tour—we crossed
a very wide street to our hotel
and it wasn’t long before little
Casma had gilien out the mail
and everyone was busy visiting
with loved ones. We have all the
front of this hotel too but it
looks right into the railroad
station and some flashing neon
signs. We were able to look
down on the celebration in the
street from our balcony-the
people had on masks and carried
lighted lanterns; the people
were in a gay mood and the
rathskeller in the hotel was real
ly jumping. We walked out in
the crowds after dinner trying
to place the shopping centers

You say you have not received
any of the cards we have written
you? Have you heard any one
in Durham say she has had a
card? I certainly hope we have
put enough stamps on those
cards to get them out of Europe.
I sent all my children cards from
Rome-sure hope they get them.
There is a peculiar custom over
here about cards-you may write
five words for the price of a
postcard, any more and it be
comes a letter and you pay letter
price! Ruth has spent a young
fortune in cards and stamps. I
didn’t find out until we were
leaving Venice that we could
get those packages of postcards
and scenery for a pack of
cigarettes. Some of those who
had been to Europe before, came
stocked up and used the
cigarettes for legal tender.
We walked this morning to
sight see. WE went to see an oil
painting called “The Grand
Panorama”, commemorating the
passage of the French army at
Verrieres on the Swiss border.
The canvas measures 14,800 sq.
ft. and covers the walls of the
round hall and represents a
landscape in the depths of win
ter. On entering the round hall
we found ourselves facing the
Swiss village of Verrieres close
to the French border; on one side
one sees the customs house of
Meudon, in the background can
be seen the long range of the
Jura mountains. The church has
cony but It Is snow covered antJ been taken over for & Aospltal
and the villager* are bringing
provisions for the helpless suf
ferers; a trata, one v«b of which
is real, is carrying the wounded
to the hospital. The canvass
seems alive with its thouaandt
of life-sized people. ’The guide
said the artist, Castres, was
showing in oil that the Swias
did everything in their pwwer
to help the French in the Fran-
co-Prussian War.
We went outside one of the
city gates to see the Lion of Lu
cerne. This celebrated lion was
hawn out of solid rock by Thor-
waldsen, a Danish sculptor, and
commemorates the Swiss guards
who perished, almost to a jnan,
in defense of Louis, the six
teenth. The rock is sixty feet
tiigh, tlie lion lies in a recess in
the center, a little stream flows
down on one side of the rock
and gathers in a small pool at
its base; the lion has been
pierced by a broken lance but
his hugh paw is still protectingi
the Bourbon shield; there is a
look of pain on the lion’s face.
Nearby is the Glacier Garden,
Nature’s own monument. There
were nine potholes of an old
glacier. Water triclUing through
the fissures of the glacier gave
a rotary motion to the stones
v.rhich fell into the fissures; the
stones hollowed out the holes in
the rocks and were felt in them
after the glacier melted. The
giant pots were discovered in
