Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBKlDGE HERALD Friday, July 1973 Devaluation lines pockets of tourists on way to U.S. By ROBERT LINDSEY New York Times Service NEW YORK Hundreds of thousands of middle-class for- eign tourists are on their way to the United States this sum- mer, their pockets lined with bonus dollars because of .de- valuation and rising wages abroad. Americans going, overseas this year ar-e learning that the devaluation of the- dollar and inflation abroad have slashed the buying powsr of their earn- ings. But foreign visitors here are finding that such curren as marks, yen, lire, pesos and francs stretch more than ever before. Ths result is a flood of tour- ists from abroad this year and the first waves, are already here. Most government and airline officials expect foreign trave! to America to increase by 20 to 25.per cent this year, while overssas trips by Americans are expected to increase by crease by less than 8 per cent, less than 8 per cent.

Name Addrtsi............................ year, excluding visitors from Mexico and Canada, 2.6 million .tourists visited United States, and 7.4 million Americans went abroad. The United States Travel Service, an agency.of the com- merce department set up to encourage foreign tourism, forecasts that 3.4 million will come here this year an in- crease of 2p.'6. per cent over last year. During.the first four months of the year, the in- creass was 29 per cent. "It's tremendous, absolutely amazing how fast this market has opened .said David Seegul, President of Travel- lers a Manhat- tan-agency that was one of the first major promoters of low- cost tours for middle-income Europeans to this country. fifth-ivheeF is newcomer to camping luxury TORONTO Thousands of vacationing Canadians from all over the country .will be tak- ing their own "motel accom- modations" along when they take to the open road this sum- mer. The "Motel" in this case runs on wheels. It could b? a small, tiat trailer thai opens up into a tent when you park your car at a mountain lake and. light up the camp fire. Or it could be a spacious, motor home, pow ered by a smooth V-8 engine and equipped with everything from inside plumbing and sofl beds to stereo hi-fi, color TV central air-conditioning and i dream kitchen. "Never before has there been a greater variety of styles models and price ranges to choose says Wflford H. and 'General Manger of Canadian ed, a leader in the instalment financing of recreational ve- hicles.

Phone 328-0222 In addition to tent campers and motor homes, there are truck campers (special bodies mounted on pickup trucks) and the ever-popular "trave trailer" (a complete, self-con tained home on wheels) tha towed by the family car. Truck campers and travel trailer; normally come. with- such amenities as toilet facilities, re frigerators, stoves and built-in sleeping accommodations. A relative newcomer is the so-called "fifth wheel" a super large, super luxurious trailer that requires "a pickup truck for towing. There is ;an actual "fifth a wheel- shaped hitch bolted horizontal- ly to the floor of the' truck. The trailer's front overhang is at- tached to it.. Like the larger motor homes, fifth wheels offer the ultimate in comfort-for -those- who- like to "rough it" in style. These commodious trailers, which range up to 35 feet in' length, boast separate kitchens, bedrooms and baths. Of and by itself, a fifth wheel costs less than a comparable motor home because it doesn't iave its own propulsion sys- tem. The owner, of course, will also need a pickup truck to tow t.

The park has 20 tent sites and 20 trailer spaces with water and electrical hookups and is ed by beautiful moss-draped live oaks.
