THE WAY TO RELAX Greece is n big drawing card for more and more louriitj and here are two couples relaxing over a drink in a classic setting below the Acropolis in Athens. Delphi alone is worth the trip Visit Athens and save By BARRY MARTIN ATHENS Among all of tb major cities of Western Eur ope, Athens offers the lowe: cost of living to tourists. A double room with bath an continental breakfast in a moc first class hotel in cen tral Athens can cost as little a J7 a night including service an taxes. The hotels are groups in two main areas: the top grade establishments in the area of Consitution Square the medium priced an economy accommodatiti around Omonia Square on th direct subway line to Piraeus the port of Athens. A popular alternative Is t itay at one of the beach re- aorta spread along the costa highway towards Cape Sounion Old Phaleron is only four miles from the heart of Athens, Gly fada is 10 miles, Voula 13, Ka vouri 15, Vouliagmeni 16, Var Itiza 20. I was able to get an excellent bird-'s eye view o these resorts on the approach to Athens airport aboard the British European Airways Tri dent I caught in London after flying Air Canada across the Atlantic. Frequent and cheap bus s e r vi c e s connect the beaches to the Greek capital and sun worshippers can com mute easily for sightseeing or eight-life. Athens, of course, is besl known for its classical splen don the Acropolis and other major sites and treasure-filled museums. Some guide books feature whole chapters of stone- by-stone descriptions. But Ath- ens also offers a vibrant 20th century Mediterranean style of life with its own color and fas- cination. There are bustling shopping itreete with stores that close for the lengthy siesta, and then re-open until 8 p.m. or later. Open air markets are crowd- ed and lively, with glowing dis- plays of Mediterranean fruits and vegetables. Pavement cafes are everywhere, with vendors of sponges or nuts constantly circulating among the patrons. Nightlife starts late. The most popular night spot area is the Plata, a district of narrow cob- bled streets overlooked by the floodlit Acropolis. Wine-taverns are packed from nine until af- ter midnight with Greek fam- fMTHI QUALITY Motor Coach Tours OF EUROPE COLOURED BROCHURES AND RESERVATIONS FROM YOUR TRAVEL AGENT] Uies and their eating, drinking, singing and dancing to the lively sound of bouzou- fcia music. Greeks themselves drink ret sina wine flavored with res- in which tastes even worse than it sounds. Most tourists shudder at the first glass and hastily learn the Greek for non- resiziated wine: krasi aretsui- ato. But if you persevere, it is claimed, you'll find that retsina goes well with Greek food. In smaller restaurants owner chef invites you his kitchen to choose among the cooking pots for such well- known Greek dishes as dolmas, moussaka and octopus. For the best fish, go down-to-the de- lightful harbor or Tourkoliraano adjoining Pireeus. Fish restau- rants line the horseshoe-shaped waterfront against a backdrop of white houses stepping up a pie-dish hillside. Back in the kitchen you pic the fish you want and pay b weight. Dining out at tables se beside the water, you look ont gaily painted fishing ciaque and pleasure yachts that swin lazily at anchor. For yo can get a memorable fish din ner, including hunks of breat wine, salad snd fruit.

It was not always so quiet in the glens. They were busier peopled places for centuries before the Highlanders rose for Stuart Charles against Eng land's Hanoverian King George II. Whatever the rights and wrongs of the struggle, the Battle of Culloden change; things; and a Century later came the clearances, when hundreds of people were put aboard ships bound for Can- ada and the other colonies and he glens became little more than silent grazing grounds for sheep. Now the desolation of the an- cient mountains provide a refuge from the battles of mod- ern living.

Who has not heard of the Fairy Flag of the MacLeods? This fragile scrap of silk can be seen in Dunvegan Castle, oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and still the home of the Chief of the Clan Mac- Leod, Dame Flora. Twice, they say, the flag has been waved and the Clan saved from dis- aster. Skye has small caravan sites at Portree, Broadford and Sleat and a considerable amount of wayside pitching is available, if one is prepared to be self-sufficient. But with the landscape of the mighty Cuiffln Hills (a challenge for the best the wild glens of Sligachan and Berrisdale, and the coral beaches north of Dunvegan, who will mind? Spend some time in Portree and visit the weaving mills where you can buy tartans and hand-knitted woollen goods. Af- ter the Jacobite defeat at Culloden, the wearing of tartan was forbidden on pain of death and many of the patterns were destroyed. When the ban was finally lifted, the tartans re- turned, looking very similar t the original designs. Returning to the mainland you will pass Eilean Donan Castle on Loch Duich, ancien and picturesque fortress of the MacCraes, on the way inlaro through Glen JiiicI to Fort Au Justus.

Because of the proposal's ex- perimental character, Ihe CAB said, the rules would expire three years from the effective date. The board' said it would as- sess the Impact of the new rules on existing charter rules during the trial psriod. The proposed rule would re- quire that charter participants be on either a main list or a standby list filed with the CAB at least six months before the departure date. The main list would consist of persons who have paid a 25- per-cent deposit. The standby list could not exceed three times the number of the main list. Each person named on the main list would have to pay for the balance of the pro rata charter price at least 60 days before flight departure. The organizer would have to comput a tentative adjusted charter price at least 45 days prior to departure, reflecting any increase in the pro rata charter price resulting from jjartldpants' defaults. If this tentative adjusted price were less than 20 per cent above the minimum price com- puted on the basis of all seats sold, then the remaining partici- pants would have to make up the difference on a pro rata basis. If the tentative price were 20 per cent or more above the minimum price, then the charter would have to be can- celled. The newly-proposed regula- tions cannot finally be adopted until late February or early March, after the airlines, travel agents and other interested par- ties have a further chance to make their views known. But indications are that unlai legal roadblocks are thrown up, the rules will go into force it that time. For Hie new rates to apply to scheduled airlines, there would have to be unanimity among members of the Internatlolan Air Transport Association, which sets fare structures. How- ever, the charter operators with no such organization have no such limitations on their ac- tions.
