March 6, 1961: Matt Weinstock says he’s at a loss for words when people begin comparing notes about their European travels. The only foreign places he’s ever been are Iwo Jima, Manila, Tacloban and Morotai.  “There isn't much I can add except that an island in the Pacific is simply an island in the Pacific, that it was very hot and that the only art treasures within view were cans of cold beer,” he writes. 

DEAR ABBY: Tell "Alligator" I have been all over the world and in my opinion the American women have more intelligence, taste, dignity, initiative, charm and moral strength than any other women in the world. And what's more, they are better looking.
