Canada's Biggest Playground With Unlimited Potential Bronze Horses Show Their Age By GARRY ALLISON YOU STAND there in the fog, barely able to discern the old lighthouse only a scant 100 feet away. You hear the roar of the ocean as the omin- ous Atlantic relentlessly pounds Uie huge rocks around you. The Hijrtlr iiriHi air is thick you're all alone in the world. Returning to the same spot of fishing boats and the men the next day, the fog lifted, flwm- you can see limitless miles past the towering white lighthouse, over the huge flat rocks, far out into the Atlantic. The break- ers crash around you, the spray leaves a salt taste on your lips. Your imagination races with tales of ocean-going ships, Sir Walter Scott Anniversary To Be Celebrated who work on them. For you it's something new and exciting perhapr. even eerie. The vast expanse of the swirling ocean captivates you; remembering the deep haunting foghorn from- yesterday you again get a feeling of alone- ness.

(CP) _ One and a quarter million square miles is a big playground in anybody's lan- guage, but as far as Max McConnell is concerned, that's exactly what the North- west Territories play- ground with unlimited poten- tial.

Opening day pro- ceeds benefit The Community Committee of The Brooklyn Museum. Each Sunday, the market brings together about 100 anti- quarians, dealers, craftsmen, and artists. Some take space for the day to dispose of an estate, an odd lot or a collec- tion. Others are professionals who take their treasures around the country, from one show to another. Many of the exhibitors bring in selected ob- jects from country or city stores, while many others work out of their own homes. The New York Flea Market, now in its seventh year, is open from 1-7, weather permitting.

A chain of beacons next summer will light tile way south from Edinburgh to the border country of Rox- burghshire, where .Scott's old stone mansion on the River Tweed, Abbotsford, will be floodlit and possibly made the setting for a dramatized sound and light presentation of the lawyer-novelist's life. The BBC is sending a cam- era team later this year to film a television documentary at the house, which is still owned by Scott's descendants and has long been a thrivuii tourist spot with its relics ol the author and souvenir gift shop.

There are none of the usual tourist haunts such as motels, hotels, tents, trailers, picnic tables, etc. to spoil the rustic setting. The only estab- lishments not vital to the life of the fishing village are two sou- venir shops and a restaurant, all of which blend into the vil- lage encircling the tiny cove. The fishermen's homes seem to be sunk into the solid rock. The inhabitants tell you they have to have soil trucked in in order to plant gardens or lawns. AH around you on the bar- ren rocks huge fish nets lie drying in the sun, a constant reminder of the work-a-day vil- lage you're holidaying in. Lob- ster traps are piled along the piers and beside most of the houses. Nestled in the small harbor, the fishing boats bob lazily on the undulating salt water. Your camera clicks away, capturing these scenes in a world foreign to you a world all its own. Peggy's Cove is just a short 30-minute drive from the bust- ling city of Halifax. As you tra- vel along the winding highway you pass through other fishing villages but none compare to the stark eauty of the Cove. The historic St. John's Church and light house dominate the skyline, backdropped against the white-capped Atlan- tic as you turn into the village. Once you drive into the village you feel compelled to leave your" car .and roam along the rocks. Alone with the ocean and your thoughts. You glance up at a squawk- ing gull as it drifts lazily along the rugged coast line your thoughts drift with him on into another time, another Many Tours Offered By Antwerp 'The city of Antwerp boasts many attractions on guided tours offered to visitors under the auspices of the City Tour- ist Office.

VENICE, Italy The four prancing horses in front of St. Mark's Cathedral are years old and their age is showing. The h i s t o r i c green gold horses, familiar to every tour- ist who has gazed at the cele- brated basilica from St. Mark's Square, are pocked with thou- sands of little marks, fissures and signs o( corrosion. These are (he inevitable ef- fects of two millenia in the open air and the fact that the bronze from which they were cast was faulty. No one can agree what to do to save them, and unless some rejuvenation treatment is found, the statues may have to be removed to a museum and replaced with copies. The slow decay has been hastened in this century by air pollution from sulphurous fumes wafting from factories and local central- heating sys- tems. And their condition has been worsened by thousands of miles of travel over the Med lerranean and Europe. Some believe the horses came from Emperor Nero's tri- umphal arch in Rome. Others suggest the Greek isle of Chios or the classical Greek centre at Delphi, where the pedestal for quadriga (four horse chariot) las been found.

TravelArctic, whose symbol is a polar bear on a bright blue background, has received inquiries by mail during the last nine months, double the number recieved in the same period a year ago. "It's not a recreation area for the average Mr. McConnell says. "A high per- centage of our visitors are professionals or owners of small businesses. "The average person doesn't want to come here. This is for adventurers, the pioneers. For a guy who wants paved roads come back in 40 years. "Let's face it, it you're going to spend on a week's fishing trip, you've already made your pile." The N.W.T.'s total area of 1.3 million square miles in- cludes square miles of fresh-water lakes and the fish grow to mouth-watering size and delicacy. Two mounted lake trout decorate TravelArctic's office walls and they're well over 70 pounds each. World-famous Arctic char, caught off the north coast, are superlative when baked and are a must for any gourmet or ordinary tourist who enjoys good food. Of the tourists who visited the Northwest Territo- ries last year and spent a total of more than million, were from the United States. Nearly the Americans spent million at expensive big-game hunt- ing and fishing lodges and outfitters compared with about 550 Canadians who spent "So says Mr. McConnell, "We're putting our bucks into the U.S. mar- ket. "The North is too close for most Canadians. To the peo- ple of Edmonton, Hawaii's the place to go for a holiday.
