Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 1HE LFIHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, June 9, 1972 Enjoy Alberta's Rockies any time of the year FAMOUS BEAUTY SPOT Lake louiss is known throughout' tho world for ils magnificent mountain selling. The poppies shown in the pholo are also a trademark of the gardens surrounding the Chateau. Photo Beach vacations demand hot summery days; skiing holidays call for snow-covered hills. But a visit to the Rocky Mountains of Alberta can be en- joyed any time. The mountains arc just as big and beautiful in June or September as they are in July and August, but tho crowds are smaller. Most of the summer tourist attractions and facilities aru open during the months around the peak summer season. The entire Alberta Rocky Mountain region is a recrea- tional paradise for the trail rider, climber, hiker, rock- hound or fisherman. And if all you want to do is commune with nature, you can do that too. The scenery is spectacular and there's lots of it. National, provincial, and even one International park help to conserve the natural beauties and ward off civiliza- tion. Banff and Jasper National Parks, in Alberta, adjoin each other and Kootenay and Yoho Parks in British Columbia, to cover an area of mare -than square miles. Together, they form one of the largest wildlife preserves in the world. Deer, bighorn sheep, elk, bear, coyote and smaller animals abound. In the southwestern corner of the province, Waterton Lakes National Park combines with Glacier National Park In Mon- tana to form Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Sight-seeing bus tours selling out from the village of Banff, Lake Louise or Jasper, are plentiful. Cablccar tours, pro- viding striking photographic Tve always wanted a sports car.

Tapes and recorders can be rented in Banff or Jasper. Tapes tell motorists what they are seeing, as they see it, from their automobiles. Synchroniza- tion of sight and sound is ac- complished when cars are driv- en at suggested speeds. The aulo tape1 tours are avail- able for sightseers travelling in either direction between Banff and the Columbia Icefields, and between the latter spot and the town of Jasper. The Banff- Jasper Highway, called the Co- lumbia Icefield Highway, from Lake Louise north, is one of the world's most scenic roads. Tho Columbia Icefields, a 130 square mile remnant of the Ice Age lying astride the Continental Divide, is located at the south- ern end of Jasper National Park. Golf enthusiasts will find both beauty and challenge in the Al- berta Rockies. Courses in the national parks are well situated and planned. Each tee-off at the Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course is lined up with a famous moun- tain peak. The Banff course is laid out along the picturesque Bow River. The Totem Pole Golf Tournament, open to al amateur golfers, will be held this year from September 3 to 6 at Jasper. Sports fishing Is a year-roum activity, although certain trou' streams are closed in alternat< years to allow for natural rep- roduction. Fish include trout Rocky Mountain whitefish, Arc tic grayling, northern pike perch, walleye and goldeyc. Hiking is a favorite mountain activity. Maps, outlining routes of various lengths and diffi- culty, are available at park in- formation centres. In Banff, one short trail leads to the top of Tunnel Mountain overlooking the village and the Bow River Valley. A two-mile walk from the Lake Louise shoreline leads to Mirror Lake and a charming mountain teahouse.

Cou- gars, tigers, leopards, grizzly bears and Umber wolves aro the stars of the new Wild Ani- mal Shows presented six times each weekend at the San Diego Zoo. The animals, stars of movies and television, are part of the entourage adopted by Pat and Ted Derby, husband-and-wife animal trainers. The troupe in- cludes such notables as Chaun- cey, the official Mercury auto- mobile tiger; Clyde, a jaguar who has appeared on the 'Lassie'' television series; Sweet William, an American black bear who is a veteran of several Walt Disney produc- tions; Silvester, a timber wolf who has also appeared on and Rijo, the largest Siberian tiger In the world. Rijo, who became famous as the Enco tiger, is 12 feet long and weighs over 700 pounds. The show itself is a mixture of animal performance, audi- ence participation, interesting anecdotes, humor and music The Derbys build their so-min- ute productions on a theme o: environmental awareness stressing respect and protection !or animals in Ihe wild. The animal shows developed out of their wild animal or- phanage in Buellton, Cal. Tor many years the Derbys have accepted and trained animals which have been orphaned or rejected by their natural par- ents. Also, some of their ani- mals were once the exotic pets of families who discovered they no longer could keep the matur- ing animals in their homes. The Derbys do not believe In taking an animal from ils nat- ural environment unless it is unable to survive without hu- man help. They call their meth- od of animal handling "affec- tion training." They operate on the premise that an animal which feels secure and loved will perform well, even under difficult circumstances. This is evidenced in the per- formances of the animals, es- pecially of Silvester, the limber wolf. One of Silvosler's "tricks" is to accept the hugs and kisses of 20 small cliildrcn. Silvester is 50 proud of his "perform- ance" that he always goes back for an encore somelimes twice!

(CP) A carelessly tossed firecracker glanced off the nose and lodged in the right eye of Peter Brill, 7. He snatched it away but suf- fered powder burns. After treat- ment he had to wear an eye patch though his sight was saved. A misconception Contrary to popular belief, a ship's captain is not empowered to perform the marriage cer- emony. But in the early days of sailing, when voyages took many months, and ports of call were few and far-between, the performance of such cer- emonies by a captain was usually recognized as valid.
