Phono by SATOUR Famed Kruger Park site for world Hereford meet JOHANNESBURG South Africa's world famous Kruger National Park, natural home for lions, hippos, rhinos, ele- phants and hundreds of other kinds of wildlife, has been se- lected as the site this year for the Sixth Quadrennial World Hereford Conference. like the Olympics, the con- ference is staged in a differ- ent country every four years. It all began in Hereford City, where 1952, and since then has been staged in Argentina the U.S. Ireland and Australia This is South Africa's .year and the seventh conference will take place in Canada in 1976. Some 500 delegates are ex- pected to attend this year's gathering 40 to 50 of them from Canada at Hie Skukuza Best Camp in Kruger Park. To help interested Canadian farmers and breeders attend Montreal-Sofia air link by 1974 By JOHN VAN DER FEYST SOFIA Bulgaria hopes to Inaugurate a direct air link be- tween Montreal and Sofia by 1874 and thereby eliminate the need to change planes when travelling between the two countries. This Balkan land has become very popular with European holMaymakers during the last few years and expects to be welcoming five million visitors within its borders by 1975. Figures released by Balkan- tourist, the state-run tourism organization, show that in 1971 some three million foreigners visited the country compared who came in 1970. This has resulted in a building boom and everywhere new hotels are going up, par- ticularly along the Black Sea coast where construction activ- ity is hectic. Many high-rise hotels, mot- els and other types of lodging art adding to the capacity of such already crowded seaside resorts as Zlatny Pyassalsi (Golden Drouzhba (Friendship) and Slunchev Bri- ag (Sunny as well as spas like Hissar, Bankya and Kyustendil. The ski-resorts of Vitosha (near Borovets in the Rila mountains, and Pamporo- vo, situated at an altitude of feet in the Rhodope chain some 50 miles south of Plov- div, are also being heavily pro- moted. Bulgaria is the short period of 10 years has become the 'in1 country for tourism in Eur- Radoslav Radoulov, pub- lic relations director for the Bulgarian Tourism Committee, said recently. "In I960 when we started our campaign, only visitors came to see us. Now we are counting them in the millions and they come from 127 coun- tries all over the world." Radoulov, noting that only about visitors came from Canada last year, said that his ministry has decided to place more emphasis on promotions in Canada and the U.S. He ex- pects that these efforts will get a big assist from foreign in- vestments in the hotel industry in Bulgaria, pointing out that Holiday Inn International plans to build an 800-room hotel in Sofia for opening next year. He hopes that others will follow. Useful vacation guide "Fielding's Guide lo tlie Caribbean plus the Baha- mas" by Jeanne and Harry E. Harman (Fielding, S9.95, distributed by George J. Mc- Leod, wilF be a lot of Ca- nadian sun seekers head- ing towards the Caribbean and Bahama area this winter. They should take this book along with them, and certainly eon- it before they go, in spite of the price. My usual practice with ex- tensive guides such as this one, is to use them when deriding on an itinerary, and for infor- mation on choice of hotels etc. to be booked in advance. This pleasant job accomplished, 1 slice out the relevant pages, staple them together and shove them in my suitcase, thus avoiding extra weight. As all travellers know, excess pound- age mounts astronomically. There's not much sense in add- ing to it by taking along infor- mation you are not going to make use of. 'While I cannot vouch for the information contained in this 1972 edition of the guide, I can say that if it has Fielding's blessings it should be good. The spade work has been done by a couple with an intimate knowledge of the area. It is written in the Fielding breezy style, minutiae of all kinds in- cluded, no punches pulled, no holds barred. I can only say if I were lucky enough to be con- templating a Caribbean holi- day I'd buy it. JANE HUCKVALE.

This Canadian group will be led by Jake de Boer of Bona- venture Tours, a television and travel personality, who is an expert on South Africa. He re- ports that 27 Canadians have already signed up to go. Miss Mieke Kleinfoog, tour adviser with the South African Tourist Corporation in will also accompany the tour.

Unusual animal babies in zoo's infant nursery Two tiny dingo dogs, a cud- dly wallaby, an ornery Tasman- ian devil and two plavful oran- gutans are the infant room- mates in the glass enclosed nursery located in the chil- dren's section of the San Diego Zoo. Each of these babies has his own wooden crib or playpen complete with mattresses, blan- kets, baby bottles, and plenty of colorful toys. A nursery atten- dant, as substitute mother, feeds them, changes them, and gives them lots of love and af- fection. To a passing observer, the scene reminds one of (he tender care given baby humans with one exception. There are usually bars on the tops of the animal cribs and playpens as well as on the sides. These infants, all less than a year old, were brought to the nursery because they were eith- er ill or orphans. Many nursery babies have been rejected by their mothers. Others were pre- mature, and needed Ihe incu- bator and the special care of a nursery attendant. Many come to the nursery after being maimed by other animals. Some arrive just hours after birth. Others become III or neg- lected and need special atten- tion. A special problem is created when the baby is the first of a species to be hand-raised in the nuraei-y. A suitable baby food must be found or developed. Tho zoo dietary staff usually tries nut several different milk formulas until one works. Many times new milk compositions must be created for an unusual species. New babies usually arrive each week at the nursery. With- in the last year, a cheetah, apes, bears, monkeys, and cats have been hand-raised there. The cheetah, one of few torn in captivity, was successfully hand-raised to maturity pos- sibly the first to have been raised that way.
