PHONE 328-3388 Conditioning FROM Cross-country cyclists Jan Romeijn and Kees van der Krogt of Holland Canadian vacation here unspoiled By DAVID B. ELY Herald Staff Writer Two cyclists from Holland are discovering just how big Canada really is. "Too says Jan Romeijn, 25, of Gorinchem, Holland, "I don't think I want to live here." Jan and his friend, Kees van der Krogt, 20, of Leiden, Holland, stopped in Coaldale for a few days this week to relax a bit before continu- ing their journey which started May 5 in Rotterdam. Kees said he wanted a va- cation before he had to be- gin serving in the Dutch army, so he approached Jan, with whom he worked, about the idea of cycling somewhere for a long vacation. They de- cided on Canada in favor of Europe, because they want- ed to see some unspoiled na- ture. They began their journey by cycling from Rotterdam to Luxembourg, about 250 miles. There, they dismantled their ten-speed bicjcles and boarded a plane for New York. In the U.S., Jan said, they were not allowed to put their bicycles on the bus which would take them to Ontario. So they scrounged around in the bus terminal until they found enough paper and string to make packages not recognizable as bicycles Things would go much moro easily in Canada, they ASTRO fcEALTY HD. .Don't 'delay-let us sefl your INSURED PUR thought. And their exper- iences proved them right, they claim. In St. Catharines, Ont, they took a hotel room to get ready for their trip west and were_told they were welcome to take their cycles to their room. "It was rough the first couple of Jan said. "We weren't prepared for the cold, rainy weather." The cyclists stopped at Parry Sound to buy some food at a supermarket. They were pleased to find some Gouda cheese and asked the price in Dutch. "Te veel! (too said a voice behind them, and a fellow Hollander introduced himself. He invited them to visit him at his home, the first of many such people who them in their journey. It was at Parry Sound where Jan found that his wal- let, containing all his money, passport and plane ticket, was missing. Thinking it sto- len he phoned the police, only to find out the police already had the wallet with all the money and papers in- tact. He had dropped it on the sidewalk as he left a local bank. The scenery in Ontario was beautiful, the Hollanders felt, but they became tired of hills, thick woods and lakes. So they were relieved when the terrain began to level out in Manitoba. In Brandon they stopped to visit a family they had met in Ontario campground and enjoyed good beds, decent food and a beer. E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.)

With lots of beer, he added. "Bicycling is not the best way to see the Jan said. "You have to work too hard, and you don't have time to enjoy the scenery and environment around you." They both thought if they made the trip again, they would do it on motorcycles. Council action sought on new indoor pool City Council will be asked Tuesday to take immediate steps to build a new indoor swimming pool. A brief to be presented to council outlines the need for more swimming faculties, dangers to divers in the pres- ent indoor pool and the grow- ing numbers of people who are unable to receive swim- ming instruction or sufficient instruction because of over- demand on present facilities. Pleading for the new pool are the YWCA, Red Cross, Lethbridge school system physical education supervis- ors, University of Leth- bridge physical education de- partment, Lethbridge Y Stingray Club, Lethbridge Amateur Swim Club, Leth- bridge Amateur Diving Club, Lethbridge Synchronized Swim Club and the Leth- bridge Southern Alberta 1975 Canada Winter Games Society. The latter said it would be happy if the pool was com- pleted in time for the 1975 Games, particularly if the needs for synchronized swim- ming were taken into design consideration. Proposed amendments to the city's waste bylaw which could give some teeth to the bylaw and result in es- tablished fines for infractions will also be considered by council. Several suggested penalties Indicate the city intends to crack down on practices at the sanitary landfill.
