Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta He sells Mexico MEXICO CITY (CP) En- rique Enciso for years has had a job he likes and to keep it he has become one of the big- gest boosters for Mexico ES a tourist attraction. His place of business is a spot on the steps of a downtown hotel which caters to the tourist trade. The father of six is a regis- tered tourist guide and he pro- vides one of the best bargains for the dollar, giving advice on what pails of the city to avoid, a trip around the bustling capi- tal in a late-model car and a stop or two at shopping centres. And all it costs is about an hour. He'll tell you in fluent English that his future depends on tour- ism and because of that it's im- perative that visitors not be cheated. Tourists leaving the hotel are approached b y well-dressed guides who offer their services while proudly displaying a lic- ence issued by the Mexico de- partment of a badge of respectability to them. Enciso's original asking price for a tour was but he readily accepted of which he re- ceived 50 cents while his em- ployer who owns the cat got the rest. While his basic earnings are small he supplements his in- come by getting a cut, 15 to 25 per cent, of what tourists spend at stores he takes them to. His first advice is to slay away from guides who don't produce licences. "They're the hey-wanna-pret- ty-girl types who are only after your he said. "Registered guides lose their licences for that kind of thing." He rapped cab drivers who charge tourists too much be- cause "they hurt all Mexico." While his tour takes hi the magnificent National Museum of Anthropology and History, the largest museum in the world devoted to one branch of science, and Chapultepec Park, also one of the world's largest, the contrasts of the city are inescapable. Beggars abound on the streets while shoeshine boys are every- where. They rub shoulders with some or the most fashionably- dressed roTnen in the world. Families of Indians sit on the sidewalks and yoiing boys swim in stagnant streams Huge Spanish-style homes nestle in secluded splendor amid clumps of trees and a lit- tle further along wretched huts house large families New sign system for parks ____Friday, July 16, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 More golf courses planned for Dublin DUBLIN With 27 golf courses, all of them within easy access of the city centre, Dub- in has more golfing room than most cities, and to maintain hat enviable position in future, ive additional courses are be- ing planned to meet the rising demand for more golfing facili- ics. Two nine hole municipal courses are1 scheduled for Howth, where the Abbey Tav- ern singers perform ten miles from the heart of the city, and two are planned for the Dublin mountains, one as part of an entertainment complex. A simi- lar complex is being mapped out for Dublin's huge Phoenii Park. The golf boom is also reach- ing the provinces where new clubhouses and other visitor cilities are being built, aw! many courses are being altered and extended.

This adds "NO" to the symbol message. INSTEAD OF WORDS Picture messages instead of words have been introduced in the new signs in Alberta's provincial parks. This move is in keeping with a world- wide trend because they are a univesal language and they're faster and easier to read and understand. The white symbols of these new signs may be seen against one of tour back- ground colors which represent the four ecological zones in Alberta: shortgrass prairie- green; aspen parkland-orange; foothills-blue and boreal forest-yellow. There's only one thing to watch for-there are positive and negative symbols. The illustration on the sign remains the same for negative but includes a diagonal line drawn through it.

CASTRIES A quarter cen- tury ago one of the busiest air- fields in the West Indies lay at the southern end of this eastern Caribbean island of St. Lucia. When the war ended, the Stars and Stripes came down and the airmen went back to the States. And the local people went back to their former pastoral lives. They continued to oper- ate the former military hospi- tal, however so well_ that even now, 25 years later, it en- joys a fine reputation in the region. Over the years some build- ings fell into ruin, and goats and sheep began nibbling at grass growing in the cracks in the runways. Now the runways are oper- able again for the age of the jumbo jet. With the help of Ca- nadian funds, the landing field has been rebuilt and enlarged and local people have been warned to keep their animals tied up. Any goat or sheep ven luring onto the airfield now wil be shot on sight. The old con trol tower serves as a temper ary terminal building. Eventu ally, a new building will IK built to handle the big jet visi tors. The re-birth of southern SI Lucia is the result in part o the purchase of an 85-acre co conut plantation by Englis interests several years ago Then- new Halcyon Days hole with 256 rooms (first phase opened officially on July 15, a though it actually began bus ness when the airport opene< about two months ago. For General Manager Mike McCarthy and his managerial staff, the pre-opening days were anything but halcyon. They had to oversee construc- tion details, hire staff, and work out a plan to train local people to beieome waiters, bar- tenders and chambermaids. Since most of the recruits lived in rural parts of the island, many had never even seen hotel of any kind before, let alone one that, with its opening, was to become the largest on the island. Some of them had finishod public school, but until the Halcyon came along had little hope of finding work near home except in fishing or agri- culture. It was back to learning for all of them in a hastily impro- vised hotel school on the prop- erty. There they learned how to set a table, carry a tray of dishes and food; how to take an order and write it down; how to serve meats and veget- ables and desserts; how to pour a cup of coffee without spilling it. After graduating from the crash courses, the employees tried out their new-found skills on live guests other St. I.u cians who were invited to be weekend guests of the hotel a rates that did not cover the costs of mcols alone. Mike McCarthy hired a Grcn ndian to train a combo group He also hired a well-known steel band expert from Trini dad, John Joseph, to train a group of 40 boys to play stcc band music. "Most of the boys had n revious training at Jo- seph told me. "I recruited them 'f the streets and roads." Even so, when they played ieir first public concert, it was wious that another well- mown West Indian band was in ie making.
