He felt certain that large nupa- bers of tourists would be coming through and would be asking many questions in rheir anxiety to learn, about Lethbridge and southern Alberta. Tourists should find information readily available, he felt, adding that the Jaycees proposed publish- j leg a bookie; which would supply many of the answers likely to be sought. Lethbridge's first job in the tour- ist trade, srated Mr. Hill, was to encourage tourists to stop off here I and then be certain that they leave I here "with a good taste in their mouth" so they will want to stop 1 off here again on the way hoaie and then publicize the hospitality and attractions of Lethbridge to their friends. Mr. Hill saw a great future for Lethbndge in the tourist trade if travellers would be going back home feeling: "I was treated well ia and urging their when you're going to i the national parks."
