Thirty-seven days at a cost of about $4.00 a day for the two. Commentary on political reactions, undercurrent of resentment of Fascism, acceptance of it in Austria, democracy of smaller countries, Catholic Fascism, etc. Anecdotes of places and people. Style colloquial, occasionally striving for humor, but pleasant enough entertainment.
