All travelers to foreign lands must have proper tickets.
These are to be secured from the local Doll Travel Bureau.
The local business and ticket agents (the boys) should write
to the Doll Travel Bureau for reservations not later than November 15, 1926.
This is necessary in order to secure proper accommodations.
On account of the large number of travelers expected, the
Bureau has secured special rates from the railroads and steamship companies.
Each ticket costs ninety-nine cents. This includes the railroad ticket in the
United States, the steamer fare (including stewards' fees), the railroad fare
in Japan to the final destination, and the expenses in connection with the
distribution in Japan.
In addition to the ticket, each doll should have a passport.
This, the children can be told, is a letter of introduction from the
government of the United States to that of Japan, giving assurances that the
traveler is a well-behaved citizen of the United States and will observe with
care the laws of Japan during the proposed visit. The passport, to be
effective, needs the visa of the Japanese Consul General. This visa signifies that
the Japanese government has examined the passport of the prospective traveler
and not only permits entry into the country, but agrees to take good care of
the traveler during the period of the visit.
This passport, properly visÚd, should be secured from the
Doll Travel Bureau. The passport fee is one cent.
