Indians come in to trade and visit many interesting types.

D. Z. Courts. Under Mr. and Mrs. D. Zelinsky. Offer ten modern
cottages, set in tropical garden. Best of food and an atmosphere of home
comfort. Try a D. Z. Special drink. Drive through Main St. about % of a
mile, stop at gate, honk horn. I like the Zelinsky's. So will you.

Rogers, Sol, and Pemex Courts also offer overnight cottages with moderate
rates.

From here, next morning, you start up into the beautiful mountain country.
Ask about fog conditions. Allow not less than seven hours for drive to
Mexico City. Next one hundred miles have stretches with many curves.
All turns are well banked and have guard rails or walls in most places.

ENTERING MEXICO CITY.

A new, divided, four-lane highway has just been opened to within a mile of
City Center. If this is your first visit, get a guide at Police Station who

SELECTION UNTIL YOU HAVE LOOKED AT THE ROOMS.
