Cheaper Continental Rail Travel To encourage foreign visitors, cheaper train

fares on special tickets will be in vogue in a number of countries this summer. A reduction of 60 per cent. on the recognized fares has been in force on the German State Railways for some time and the special return tickets to which this con- cession applies will continuo to bo available until October 24th, thus covering the full tourist season. Visitors to France will also benefit by a 40 per cent. reduction on single fares under certain conditions between April 11th and May 2nd, while special 30-day return tickets to the French Riviera by P.L.M. Railway at a reduction of 30 per cent. on the two single fares will be obtainable every Monday and Saturday from now on : also on April 18th (Easter) and June 7th (Whitsun). The Brussels Exhibition to be held between April and November presents the Belgian authorities with an excuse for reducing fares in their country also. For the duration of the Exhibition cheap week-end tickets will be issued by the Southern Railway and holders of them will not need passports.
