Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBHIDGE HERALD Friday, December 20, 1974 Bethlehem mayor to better city's i BETHLEHEM, Judea Manger Square in Bethlehem will no longer be a parking lot if the mayor of the city has his way The central section of the little town has been blighted by parked trucks, taxis, tourist buses and private cars through much of the city's re- cent history Bethlehem's new mayor, Eldias Frerj, is deter- mined to change the nature of this key section of the city by converting it into, spreading gardens and stone arches that will more effectively reflect the mood of Christendom's birthplace city This is a multi million dollar effort and Freij is turn- ing to the charitable founda- tion known as the Bethlehem Foundation to accomplish his goal But no changes yet will be in evidence when the many thousands of pilgrims descend upon Manger Square to celebrate this Christmas Strings of colored lights will connect the few tall buildings of the town in a net of vibrant light Some visitors will head toward Shepherd's Fields, a simple unadorned area just outside the town, while others will gather near the heart of the city with its churches and shrines, most important of which is the Church of Nativity The Church of Nativity was first built by the Emperor Constantine ten yen he decreed Christianity the state religion in 321 About two hundred years later it was ex- tensively restored by the Emperor Justinian. Miraculously, the church, one of the earliest ever built, escaped destruction during the incursions of the Persians, the Seljuk Turks and the Mamelukes On Christmas Day 1101 the Greenland ed tne crown- tbe to jesus thorns- A floor brother a few declined he said, where crown of in the the it of the -exposed The sf cbur in one to the Sultan similar The was cording earher in eases, ac- of the Passport Photos Candid Weddings Picture Framing Photo A.

The end of summer does not mean the end of visitors for Yellowstone, as snow coaches and ski touring open a new vista for the winter visitor. New York Timei Service NEW YORK The notion of a Moscow restaurant guide is likely to evoke smiles of derision among visitors and foreign residents of the Soviet capital Many of them count dining out, from the plea for admittance at the door to the excruciatingly slow serving of mediocre food in high ceihnged, marble columned premises, among the less pleasurable experiences of their stay Yet two young Columbia University scholars, acting in blithe ignorance of the conventional wisdom, have now produced what very well may be the only guide to Moscow's restaurants ever published. And they have done it in such a good humored fashion that the reader is tempted to pack the attractive little book and do battle once again with adamant doormen for a taste of that borsht and the sound of that blaring dance band "The Moscow as Wesley Fisher, a sociologist, and his wife, Lynn, a Russian literature specialist, have somewhat optimistically titl- ed their guide, not only lists virtually all the public eating establishments of any interest, but rates food, am- bience and service of most of them on a four point scale ranging from poor to excellent on the basis of personal visits and evaluations The Fishers did most of their field work in 1970-71, when they were in Moscow on an academic exchange program, and have returned for visits since then In their survey of the approximately 250 restaurants and cafes, the Fishers have, of course, included all the luxury es- tablishments that cater to foreign tourists They include such top rated eating places as the National Hotel and the 21st floor of the Rossiya Hotel with its stunning panoramic view of the Kremlin, as well as such famous ethnic restaurants as the Aragvi, which serves Georgian food, and the Uzbekistan, with its Central Asian flavor But the charm of "The Moscow Gourmet" lies more m its discoveries of little places off the beaten track that offer a refreshing change from the overbearing decor and formality of the big down- town restaurants The Fishers went far afield in their explorations of gas- tronomic Moscow, often travelling to the last subway stop in the outskirts, to find surprisingly friendly service. colors and Sunfhght Great holidays great value Hawaii from 11 nghls 14 mghlslrom S439 vaWardair747_____ Mazatlan from 'i o1" S349 3 Warda r 747______ Puerto Vallarta langfrts breaMast d nner PWA from "from San Diego 5 n gh s San D ego nights Anahe m jpisneyland) a PWA_________ California from n ghts n--iud'3s car and hole s v a PWA ____ PCS af person 2 people per roor- rljde i i e hole! and oth" featu es n Sjn g brcrhu e Ser; ce charges taxe and n ost exi a P i_es P oner for some dopa re1" Canada's Number One from CALGARY Contact any one of these Travel Agencies ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall Phone 328-3201 A.M.A. TRAVEL AGENCY 605 5th Ave. S.

DUBLIN It is not un- common for the thermometer to read 60 degrees Fahrenheit on Christmas Day in Dublin the temperature here often rivals that of Biarritz, Nice, Florence and Venice in winter Most Irish gardens have roses in bloom at Christmas, the grass goes on growing all year round, and if Irish people tend to burst into Latin and call their cypress a "macra carpa" and their cherry a "prunus flore pleno" it is only because of the great variety of plants and trees in the country The famous gardens at Mount Ussher in Co Wicklow have several varieties of rhododendrons flowenng by December The bead plant, which is a native of the South Pacific, covers a corner with a red carpet of tiny berries, purple azaleas vie with pink camehas and yellow mimosa for attention, sub tropical trees which grow to an im- mense size in Ireland, will be in lull leaf, and the banana tree will have dimmuitive fruit In Killarney, the ar- butus or strawberry tree will be covered with berries in the midst of the first flowering rhododendrons which will also be found alongside yellow mahonia on Garnish Island off the Cork coast All over Ireland nature produces a not of color at Christmas to rival that produced by man For weeks before Christ- mas, which is becoming an increasingly popular time with visitors to this country, the main streets throughout Ireland are bright with fairy lights and multi colored decorations Many are closed to traffic and sport a huge Christmas tree In the big stores, Santa Claus distributes his gifts, and all the time the women are thinking, not only of toys, but of food Ireland's great Christmas specialty, spiced beef, has to be prepared well ahead because the beef must be marinated in spices and Guinness for a week The turkey must be stuffed with sage and breadcrumbs and, like the plum pudding, will probably be served up aflame with lighted whiskey As Christmas approaches the bustling crowds are enter- tained by little choirs gathered at odd places along their way They sing in tiny juvenile trebles as they shake a collection box under the shoppers' noses Begging' Yes for an old people's home, an orphanage, maybe a clinic for the blind St Stephen's Day, December 26, is a favorite day for sports meetings, but it also has its ritual It is said that a wren flying and chatter- ing over St Stephen's hiding place led the Saint's enemies to find him and tradition demands that the little bird should be hunted on the feast day Little groups claiming to have travelled miles through the countryside dress up in fancy dress and, carrying a mock coffin wreathed in feathers, sing from door to door "The Wren, the Wren, the King of all Birds, St Stephenses Day was caught in the furze" probably accom- panied by the beating of a bodhran or goatskin tam- bourine CHARTERS to Europe Register now for our frequent departures.
