I For ninny years countries bordering the Danube have disagreed on tariffs and other regulations, thus Stifling trade on the most imporant navigable stream In central Kurope. ; Flowing from the hills of T.avaria to the Black sea, the Danube has been tailed the highway or races because many races of both the Orient and Occident have navigated the stream nd held parts of its 1.SIX) mile course. As one travels from the Black sea, the maritime Danube is left behind at .Turuii Severin, at the head of its Sprawling delta. There the Orient has been exchanged for the Occident Moslem minarets for Creek Orthodox domes, old Turkish gates for old There a narrower bridges.

Hardastern when the ly is Turnu-Severitraveler finds himself amid a wild t twirl of waters, before whose terrific force his boat's progress more and more resembles the freak feat fit trying to mount a descending escalator, i At last the shelter of an artificially Vailed channel is reached. Men call this two-mil- e stretch the Iron Gate, 6nd doubtless the Argonautic heroes in their ascent gave it some equally forceful name, perhaps likening it to the battering club of Herakles. f For thousands of years the club battered, or if you prefer, the gates elanged, against craft that sneaked Opshore, towed by battalions of men. At last, owing to the decisions of the Berlin Congress in 1S78, the rapids of the lower Danube were regulated by Hungary at a cost of $0,000,000. The Forgotten Island, f 'There's Ada Kaleh," remarks a guide pointing to an islet off Orsova. fFoiks call it the Forgotten island because the Berlin Congress overlooked tt. Now, would you catch an island being overlooked in the Hudson? Why, thcre'd be an amusement park on it!" Ashore the traveler glimpses a quaint island colony of Bosnian Moslems, who long ago built their little houses amid the encompassing ramifications of a dismantled Turkish fortress. It is as peaceful a sight as . that of wild flowers carpeting an old shell crater. $ On the Danube there are customs duties and enough local port regulations to make a sailorman go bald With worry. The river is more like a political conflict, with seven tickets in the field, which is to say, it flows through three kingdoms, one regency, two republics and a social democracy. Its length is exceeded In Europe only by that of the Volga. Its navigable portion, as shown on the chart, totals nearly 1,000 miles; and a glance at its nine political sectors, of which three are joint that is, shared by pairs of countries reveal that almost e of the Danube's length Is thus shared by states Which face each other from the river's opposite banks. i Presently the boat "enters a sheer-facegorge of profiles that Incloses the observer in an endless vesta of waters.

Their bards called the future Danube the Istros and dwelt lo awesome terms on its "shadow-environeorigin." thus placing its source at the head of the Kazan. where rapids still swirl malevolently over ledges of rock, "r But the Greeks never permitted superstition to Interfere with business.

Brown, N, Y.," on a spire of Milan cathedral. But with marine glasses he will find that the scratcs hes read: "Imp. Caesar. . . , An. Germ. Pont. Maximus." Trajan, or any other Unman who could lead an army along the flat face of those cliffs by moans of beam supported galleries, he will agree, had a perfect right to cut his name there! For two days and nights the boat churns ahead between wide plains, and on the third afternoon comes into sight of Belgrade (Beograd). Terched high over the confluence of the Danube and the Sava, the Jugoslav capital presents a striking picture. Few European cities are situated on two such waterways, whose navigable lengths within Jugoslavia total 720 miles. Budapest a Stately City. Not to know Budapest is to have missed one of the loveliest of European cities. It has its own distinctive stateliness that reflects the cultural flowering of a race whose kingdom has been enthroned on the Danube for a thousand years. As certain American metropolitan quarters, such as "Little Italy" or "Little Germany," reflect their mother countries in miniature, so Budapest's topography reflects on a small scale the lineaments of what, as a result of the war, is literally "Little Hungary." Ancient Buda, on the Danube's right bank, rears aloft on rocky crests that represent the foothills of Hungary's mountains, while on the other bank modern Pest stretches away in levels that prelude Hungary's plains. After leaving Budapest, the boat heads for that cliff fringed section of the Danube where it makes the big turn westward. Ahead rise the Little Carpathians, forming the background of a busy port scene of quays, cranes, canal boats clustered in slips Press-burg- , the German guidebook calls it. It commands a splendid panorama of the Danube's two arms encircling the Great Schutt, which local pride proclaims "the largest interior island in Europe.'' To Vienna and Beyond. Beyond Bratislava the river skirts Hainburg, a hillside picture of town walls, curious gates, crumbling towers. It is one of half a dozen Danube towns mentioned in the "Nibelungenlied" as being associated with the downstream journey of Burgundy's doomed knights. the Danube's Beyond Hainburg banks lower iuto the wide plain where lies Vienna. Owing to postwar exigencies, Vienna has achieved for its working classes n housing scheme which, planned to embrace .10.000 families, is "futuristic" only because of its novelty. A visit to one Viennese palace of many the Schonbrunn of Versailleslike aspect reveals the luxury of the Hapsburg regime and its postwar sie transit under Austria's democratic republic; for the park where Maria Theresa once strolled and where the Napoleon of 180,r planned campaigns has become a Sunday pleasance of Vienna's workers. Beyond Vienna Greifenstein's fine old castle rises into view, as you near the Danube's region of medieval strongholds. Steaming past the Wa ehau Defile's crag set ruins, one reflects upon the formidable amount of trade that fell to them as a result of the Crusades. In 100(5 some 2.0(H) craft, packed with 40.0(H) Palestine-bountroops, descended the Danube. Three ensuing Crusades took the same route. There sprang up a river trade consisting of westbound silks, bronzes, spices, oils, and of eastbound furs. arms, and sad dlery. And the Danube castles took their tolls and the flotsam rake off of stranded cargoes, not to mention piratical seizures and the enslaving of ships' crews.
