Now. of all people, Bob Dow-liny, the minister responsible for tourism is saying it loo. Hnl Ihe big reel-headed Smith said it loudest. Frank was hopping the other day when he came across a litlle story buried in the inside pages of the Calgary llorald that read: Yellow-head 'recogni- tion' by Ottawa expected soon. The Ycllowlicad, as all true southerners should know, is mil Ihe "real" name of a highway, bnl a tourist promolion name that has gained recognition through the relentless efforts of promotion types. Well the slory said (he federal government plans financial assistance to the effort. Smith dashed off rude letters to every middling sized community between Medicine Hat and Hope, B.C. pointing to the efforts of the ''other" highway promoters replete with urgings to get off the duff. Even the Trans-Canada Highway that misses Lelhbridge by HO miles is doing a better job of attracting visitors than our Crowsnesl Pass route, said the fuming Smith. Soulhern Alberta has the Whoop-Up and the Mac- leod trails, every bit as colorful as the Yellowhead. The coming of the RCMP to the west in 1874 "all happened right here" the tourist manager is often heard to say. Frank is concerned that Saskatchewan, which didn't even figure importantly in the coming west of the North West Mounted Police until later, has heen planning celebrations for the '74 centennial for two years already. We're just getting started. But there's hope. The Alberta government's new tourist minister, .Mr. Dowling, is sounding very much these days like Frank. He was quoted recently saying that both gov- ernment and private industry have done a poor job lately in promoting tourism. "II we don't, get busy, Alberta is going to lose said Mr. Dowling. Sounds like Frank, doesn't it0 If only we aren't too late.
