FOR the past eight years, parties of Canadian undergraduates, numbering from 50 to 150, and representing most of the universities of Canada, have made a summer tour in Europe under the auspices of the Overseas Education League. The party usually leaves Montreal for Glasgow towards the end of June, and spends about a month in Great Britain, visiting such centres as St. Andrews, Edinburgh, Grasmere, Bangor, Stratford-on-Avon, Oxford, Cambridge, London, and the south coast of England. A further fortnight is then spent in Switzerland, Germany, and France, before the party embarks for Quebec. Last year the continental section of the tour included visits to Geneva, Innsbruck, Oberammergau, Munich, Stuttgart, and Paris.
