The country is served by 30 international and two domestic airlines and Mexico is busy increasing the number of routes these earners may fly.

CURSE OP VISITORS This is Mexico, a visitor's pocket guide published in Mex- ico City, devotes a whole page to the curse of visitors. It says a lot of the trouble "can be in the mind." "Remember that any change of habit, food, or water chemi- cal anywhere can produce the same effect, even within your j own country from place to; place." A Canadian resident of Mex- ico said what a visitor eats probably isn't important. "You're probably going to Ret hit anyway, so why not enjoy j the local food" he asked. "In that way. at least when you do get sick you've had a good time. His outlook is n little extreme. Hotels, tacitly admitting that Mexico's water is suspect, sup- j ply t'istilled water for drinking. It's a good idea to clean your teeth in distilled water, too. There's no doubt that un- cooked food should be avoided. Fruits which can't be peeled should also be discarded. The distilled water business has had its troubles with un- scrupulous operators apparently not caring for the inner work- ings of the stomach. water as distilled water. Agustin Olachea. head of the Mexican tourist bureau, said that blaming the water in Mex- ico for upset stomachs was "a black plague hung upon us." However, he said Mexicans going to Canada suffer the same symptoms and nobody claims Canada's water is a problem. lar sightseieng flights to Scan- dinavia's highest mountains nearby.

IIUSSEY Canadian Press Correspondent ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Newfoundland is looking for- ward to its most successful tourist season this summer. With two extra CN ferries on the Cabot Strait run between North Sydney, N.S'., and Port aux Basques, Nfld., and the in- troduction this summer of 108 additional seats on Air Canada's daily incoming flights, travel- ling facilities to the province have been greatly improved. In addition there is ship serv- ice three times weekly by the CN ferry Ambrose Shea from North Sydney to Argentia, Nfld. The Newfoundland and Labra- dor Tourist Development Of- fice's annual report said tourists spent almost mil- lion in the province in 1970, an increase of more than 30 per cent over the previous year. Just over 40 per cent of the tourists were former Newfound- landers visiting relatives while those on general vacations ac- counted for 38 per cent. The re- mainder were hunters, fisher- men and people on business and pleasure trips. Of the million left behind by the tourist it is estimated that almost ?19 million was spent on transportation and million on accommoda- tion. Hunting produced almost million, fishing million, gasoline sales and garage serv- ices million, parks camp sites million. and Empress res to cut ident and col- New York Speedway grows in U.K.popularity Speedway is now among Britain's fastest growing sports As well as regular fix- tures between the 36 teams in tbe two divisions of the Speed- way League, Britain is staging several important interna- tional events this year.
