Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 120 million visitors cross Alps every year INNSBRUCK, Austria (AP) More people now cross the Alps in one day than passed over it in the entire 200 years of the Big Migration of Ger- manic Tribes in ancient times, a Tyrolean official told a group of foreign reporters, explaining why Tyrol was preoccupied with the building of roads. Leo Feist, who is in charge of road construction for the Tyrolean provincial government, said some 120 million people cross the Alps every year in the five Alpine countries. A considerable percentage of them use the autobahn over the Brenner, one of the lowest Alpine passes. A time when cars will proceed there only at a crawl is considered not loo remote. The biggest project to ease traffic density on the Brenner is a new auto road from Ulm in West Germany to Milan in Italy. Feist predicted it will be completed in 15 years. It will enter Austria south of' Fuessen and proceed to Milan via the Fern and Reschen passes and Bergamo. There will be a road tunnel under the towering Stilfser Joch. Another priority project is the modernization of the road through the Zillar Tal in 20 Nights in -classic tours SPAIN 3 FROM CALGARY n person Stay at 3 star Lagos Rojo Hotel, Torremolinas. 50 yards from beach.

However, Tyrolean officials from Provincial Governor Eduard Wallnoefer down make no secrets they have little use for the Bavarian-Italian project of the so-called Alemagria Autobahn, linking Bavaria and the Italian province of Venice and Friuli via the Ziller Tal. "Nobody in authority has ever contacted us about this Wallnoefer said. "We are not against it in prin- ciple, but we think it is odd that a project is being drafted and presented to the public, without asking us." The Alemagna project has led to protests by the popula- tion of the Ziller Tal. Some said it would ruin the en- and consequently there. As to East-West roads in Ty- rol, officials said the construction of a road tunnel through the Arlberg has already been started. The road from St. Anton on the Arlberg to Landeck, east of it, will be expanded and Landeck linked by an autobahn with Innsbruck, the provincial capital. Wallnoefer said 1974 tourism figures showed there had been "no but June and the first half of July had been "a definite disap- pointment." The shock of the early sum- mer months prompted of- ficials to start thinking again about speeding in- dustrialization. Wallnoefer termed the dominating role of tourism in Tyrol as "standing too much on one leg." On the other hand, the offi- cials stressed that the princi- ple that industrialization must be subordinate to tourism has not been changed. This means the provincial government will not allow industrializa- tion in the main tourist areas.

Song and laughter ring through the crisp winter air. Flags wave gaily; buildings are draped with bunting and colored lights. A seven-foot walking, talk-- ing snowman wearing a bright red toque, and a long sash around his waist exhorts the crowds gathered around his ice palace to rejoice. "Put care aside for the period of my urges Bonhomme Carnival, "and share the joy of all my This rollicking merrymaker is the official host of the Quebec City Carnival (Feb. 6 16, a pre-Lenten, French Canadian Mardi Gras dedicated to the pleasures and pursuits of winter. Focal point for most Car- nival activity is Bonhomme Carnival's fee Palace. Made of water-welded ice blocks on a metal frame, it rises two or three stories high and includes walls, floors, stairways, battlements, toboggan slides and even a jail. Here, revelers caught not wearing their Bonhomme badges are imprisoned to meditate on their sins. But convictions are few, since pins are readily available: Each year, a special breed of Quebec artisans, the ice sculptors, vie with each other to create the most ingenious statues in ice and snow. Car- nival Street, a narrow tene- ment street in the old section of the city will be lined with hundreds of snow sculptures. Their subject matter varies from historical or political figures to contemporary themes. Numerous events are crammed into the Carnival calendar. Dancing is a major part of this celebration from the nightly dances at. the ice palace, to the formal balls, such as the queen's ball at the Chateau Frontenac that honors the carnival queen and her duchesses. "Bougie night" when thousands of candles are sold to merrymakers is another highlight as is the gala car- nival parade. PRAGUE This graceful old capital of Czechoslovakia is a city made for wandering for those who like to stroll its cobblestoned streets and follow in the footsteps of Kafka, Smetana, Rilke, Mozart and Beethoven. Franz Kafka, the famous novelist, began his days on the city's historic Old Town Square, almost in the shadow of the Old Town Hall with its historic astronomical clock, and today a plaque bearing his likeness marks his birthplace. A sprawling outdoor cafe on the square diagonally across from the clock is a good spot for that morning cup of coffee strong and black like a Turkish brew a place that doubles as a box seat for the clock's hourly performance. Even in winter, tourists gather here, on the hour, to watch the clock's little win- dows open and the procession of figures of Christ and the Apostles file past. It is a temptation just to sit all morning waiting for repeat performances. Not far away is the onetime Jewish ghetto where you can sec what is today Europe's oldest synagogue and an overcrowded cemetery sown with tile tombstones of a Jewish community which contributed much to the' greatness of this city. It is a short walk from there along narrow, crooked streets to the Vltava where it can be crossed over the ancient Charles Bridge with its statues of saints. On the river's left bank is the Mala Strana the Inner Town or Lesser Town to dis- tinguish it from the Old Town (Stare Mesto) and the New Town (Nove There the visitor can stroll along storied lanes.
