Tickets can be secured or deposits to secure reservations can be made. The Purser will procure by radio, without charge to the passenger, reservations or any information necessary.

Bookings can also be made through the agencies of the United States Lines in all principal cities of the United States and Canada. Reservations, especially during the Summer months, should be made, if possible, several weeks in advance.

AMERICAN CUSTOMS REGULATIONS
On arrival in New York your baggage will be subject to the same inspection on landing as on landing abroad, American Citizenship does not permit you to bring dutiable goods into the country without paying duty.

A blank will be furnished you aboard the steamer before landing. This must be filled out, listing in detail every article you obtained abroad which you are bringing home. A 25 cent revenue stamp must be affixed to the declaration. Stamps may be purchased from Purser. The list is then given the ship's purser.

This list is called your "declaration" and should include all wearing apparel, jewelry and other articles, whether worn or not, carried on your person, in your clothing, or in your baggage. These items must give their cost or value abroad and whether they were bought or given to you. Also jewelry and wearing apparel, taken out of the United States and remodeled abroad, must be listed with the cost of remodeling. Residents of the United States are allowed to bring into the United States $100.00 worth of personal effects bought abroad free of duty, in addition to all wearing apparel taken from the United States on sailing.

RECOVERY OF U. S. HEAD TAX
This Tax can be recovered by passengers, if same has been paid, provided they inform the U. S. Immigration Inspector on arrival at New York of their intention to leave the United States within sixty days (the time prescribed by U. S. Law), and obtain from him Transit Certificate Form 514,

It is also necessary for this Transit Certificate Form 514 to be turned over to the Steamship Line when completed, in time to allow same to be placed before the Immigration Authorities in Washington within 120 days of passenger’s arrival in the United States.

Unless this regulation is complied with, the Tax cannot be recovered.

SUGGESTIONS AND COMPLAINTS
Suggestions, complaints or criticisms of service or of personnel should be addressed to the General Managers United States Lines, 45 Broadway, New York City.

LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE
Latitude means ’’distance north or south of the equator”, and longitude means distance from the Meridian at Greenwich — near London. Both are recorded in degrees, minutes and seconds. At the Equator a minute of longitude is equal to a nautical mile, but as the meridians converge after leaving the equator, meeting at the Poles, the size of a degree becomes less. Sailing eastward a ship moves against the revolution of the earth, thus her course makes her gain time, while if she were sailing to the westward with the movement of the earth she would lengthen her time.

CHANGING THE CLOCK
Between New York and London there is a difference in time of five hours, and as the sun rises in the East, as we say, when the ship is going eastward she meets sunlight earlier each day and thus gains time. Exactly how much is computed each day at noon, and the ship's clocks are immediately set at the correct time for that longitude. On a vessel which makes the crossing in five days the clocks will be set ahead each day approximately an hour; on slower ships, of course, less. Going westward the clock is set back daily in similar fashion,

TIME AT SEA
Time on board is marked by bells, the ship's bell being sounded in single and double strikes

OCEAN LANES AND DISTANCES
Transatlantic steamships follow certain lanes or tracks, unless prevented from so doing by stress of weather, or work of rescue or relief or other unforeseen circumstances. From August 24 to January 14 a vessel going eastward follows the short track, and from January 15 to August 23 the long. Going west the short track is followed from August 15 to January 14, and the long from January 15 to August 14. Following these lanes makes for safety and enables vessels better to meet the exigencies of weather conditions. Some of the Atlantic distances (short track} are as follows:

MEASURING BY SOUND
It is possible to determine by sound how far distant a passing ship is if she blows her whistle or, in case of a warship, if she fires a gun. If the steam from a vessel s whistle is seen and ten seconds elapse before the sound is heard, she is just 21/10 miles off. If one second elapses, she is distant slightly more than one-fifth of a mile; if five seconds, a little more than one mile; if twenty seconds, 4% miles,

PORT AND STARBOARD
Formerly the two sides of a ship were called "Starboard'* and "larboard", the two prefixes being derived from old Anglo-Saxon words meaning, respectively "loading" and "rudder", and the word "board" meaning side. The term "Larboard" has given place to the word "Port". To "port the helm" carries a vessel to starboard, and to "starboard the helm" carries her to port. The French equivalent for port is "Babord", and starboard is "tribord".

THE BAROMETER
Next to the mariner's compass and chart, the barometer is the most important aid to navigation ever invented. Many persons know that a barometer is an instrument for recording changes in the weather, and the student of physics is taught that this is done by measuring the weight or pressure of the atmosphere. A rising barometer denotes the approach of good weather; a falling barometer, the reverse. A sudden fall warns the mariner to be on the lookout for a severe storm. The barometer was invented during the seventeenth century by Torricelli. The ship’s barometer, which is kept in the chart room, is very different from the original device. It traces a barometer chart, recording the atmospheric pressure through¬out the voyage.

THE TIDES
The surface of the ocean rises and falls twice in a lunar day of about 24 hours and 52 minutes. The tides do not always rise to the same height, but every fortnight after the new and full moon they become much higher than they were in the alternate weeks. These high tides are called Spring Tides, and the low ones Neap Tides, The close relation which the times of high water bear to the times of the moon's meridian passage shows that the moon's influence in raising the tides is two and one-half times greater than that of the sun.

THE GULF STREAM
By far the most important as well as best known of the great ocean currents derives its name from the Gulf of Mexico, out of which it flows between Cuba and the Bahamas on the one side and the Florida Keys on the other. In its narrowest portion the Gulf Stream is about fifty miles wide, and there it lias a velocity at times of as much as five miles an hour.

Flowing in a northeasterly direction along the American coast* its current gradually widens and its velocity diminishes. Reaching the banks of Newfoundland it turns and sweeps across the Atlantic then, dividing into two portions, it sends one arm down toward the Azores and the coast of Morocco, while the other passes near the shores of the British Isles and on to Norway,

As it emerges from the Gulf of Mexico it has a temperature of 84 degrees in summer, higher than that of the ocean at the equator. Even by the time it has reached mid- Atlantic it has fallen not more than 14 degrees. The effect of the Stream upon the climate of Great Britain and the northwest coast of Europe, 4000 miles away from the Gulf, is to raise the winter temperature about 30 degrees above what would be the normal temperature of those latitudes.

United States Lines Freight Department

All of the steamers operated by the United States Lines are combination freight and passenger ships. They are modern in every respect and some are equipped for carriage of consi¬derable cargo under refrigeration.

Our Docks are of recent construction and modern in all equipment, offering facilities for loading direct from cars into steamer, eliminating any hauling, lighterage or transfer by trucks. This is especially advantageous to Western Shippers, and movement of through cargo consignments in carload lots.

Special attention is given to shipments of household goods, automobiles, etc.
