The highest monthly increase in tourist enquiries in the past six years was record- ed in July by the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta's two infor- mation booths. There were visitor registrations in July, up 45 3 per cent from the 11.708 received last July, said Frank Smith executive vice- president of the association Friday The total at the brewery in- formation centre went from 6.750 in July, 1973. to 10.110 this July, while at the Henderson Lake booth, en- quiries were up from 4.958 to 6.900. Mr Smith attributed the record increase to traffic to and from Expo 74 in Spokane, both Canadian and American, Travel Alberta's efforts to persuade Albertans to see Alberta, and the energy situa- tion in the United States A sizeable number of Canadians who normally go to the United States were turned oft by the energy problems there while a fair number of Americans have decided to holiday in Canada on Canadian gas.
