Vacation on the uncrowded beaches of Oregon…

Four hundred miles of free uncrowded beaches and magnificent shoreline! Paralelling its entire length is America’s most beautiful ocean highway (US 101), down cool forest corridors, along white sandy beaches and pounding surf.

There are dozens of beautiful state parks and US forest camps, many fine resorts. Swim, play, relax! Hunt for agates, dig clams, fish in the coast streams or the suf, or out deap-sea fishing for fighting tuna.

Here’s a low-cost vacation — only 43 hours driving time from Chicago, 13 hours from Yellowstone, 10 hours from San Francisco. Average costs of vacationists in 1940 less than $3.75 per day. Send for State’s free illustrated booklet…
