Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta %B - THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD - Friday, M*rch 2, 1973 JAL to increase Canada flights Japan Air Lines will increase Its services between Vancouver and Tokyo to four flights a week this summer, the airline's head office in Tokyo announced. The additional flight during the summer peak season was revealed as part of the airline's plans for its 1973 fiscal year. (In Vancouver, JAL's Regional Manager, Mike Inui, commented: "The additional DC-8 flight on Sundays has been edded to cope with the antici- pated heavy bookings this summer. Advance reservations indicate Japanese vacationers and students will be coming to Canada in even larger numbers in 1973, and the recent revaluation of the Yen makes a holiday here more attractive than ever.") Inauguration of new flights between Japan and China will be planned if such traffic rights are obtained from the governments concerned.

The United States Travel Service (USTS) announced that three communities in the southern U.S. have planned special festivities to welcome Canadian families vacationing during the mid-March break. The oldest celebration is Canadian-American Days at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, scheduled March 17-25. For the 12th consecutive year' an extensive series of activities is planned including a folk music festival, garden tours, golf contest, children's day at the amusement park, an antique show and sale, band concerts and beach games. There will be a reception for French Canadians at Coastal Carolina Regional Campus. To keep pace with the influx of Canadians and northern U.S. residents at all times ot the year, Myrtle Beach has been involved in a multi-million dollar expansion program creating a wider choice of all types of accommocations, recreation facilities and other services. Located in the vicinity of the 50 miles of white sand beaches are more than 30,000 hotel rooms, 8,000 campsites and twelve 18-hole golf 'courses with ten more on the way. Farther south, Jekyll Island situated off the southern Georgia coast has set aside March 21 as the date of the annual Canadian Appreciation Day. Activities planned include a golf tournament, reception, dinner and dance. The town of Surfside in Florida S sponsoring their 11th annual SalVe to Canada Week March 17-24. For families vacationing from Ontario and Quebec, Surfside has arranged a special program of events: the Canadian Turf Handicap and Surfside Purse, an aqua show, shuffleboard contest, tennis tournaments and card party. Evening entertainment features ballet, a movie night, a St. Patrick's Day Canadian Club Dance, a symphony performance and the Miss Surfside - Canada Beauty Pageant. PRAGUE - The snow is deep in the Giant Mountains of Bohemia and it will be awhile before the first thaw comes to the foothills. Children throw snowballs, but when they sleep they dream of painted eggs while their elders plan for "carnival" - or Shrovetide as it's known in Czechoslovakia. If the winter has been harsh, the carnival spirit of Shrovetide will erase bitter memories, for this is the time for the young in heart, when everyone comes running to hear the bailiff's joyous proclamation: "All people are herewith given notice that ort pain of death from 2 p.m. today until midnight, everybody must laugh and be merry!" Shrovetide has been celebrated in Bohemia since time long forgotten and this year will he marked on March 6. Czechs imported it from countries where it was "born". To date scholars are unsure as to its origin, whether pagan or Christian. Czechs, however, were quick to make their own adaptation. The show begins with Shrovetide himself decked out in white shirt and broad white trousers, stuffed with feather comforters, a white night cap set smartly atop his head. His left, hand holds four aces, his right a pitcher to be filled with beer. Behind trails a priest to give lu'm the last rights before his departure from this world. A curious retinue follows: two ministrants, four gravediggers, Shrovetide's wife with a baby, two adult sons, his daughter Margaret and her lover, a judge, and finally, another star of the show, Lent, who will take over for the next forty days. The stage is set, the action unfolds. Shrovetide presents himself to the judge who will summarily pass sentence on him for, his evildolng: having fathered countless illegitimate offspring and had more than his share of the grain and the grape, By midnight the bell will toll and Shrovetide's days of wine and roses will be over. Lent takes over on the morrow! Symbolically the ceremony continues. Shrovetide resists, but he is overwhelmed. He is tied to a stretcher, given absolution by the priest and four gravediggers take him to a trench lined with snow where he will be drowned. The merriment gathers momentum. The music plays and all dance wildly in the streets, stopping occasionally to quaff their beer. The innkeeper, beer mug in herd, greets the merry-makers and welcomes them to the gaily decorated hall. Inside everything is ready, green brushwood, bright paper lanterns and a full barrel of Czech beer. The solemn welcoming cf the contrabass begins. The inn-keeiiv1 tows before the contrabass, and the musician who plays it receives a full pewter of beer which he must bot- toms-up on behalf of the contrabass. The playing, drinking and dancing feverishly accelerates. Foods* are served and ribald stories told. Then a bear, led by a keeper, joins in the fun, toppling everyone in his wake, and stealing food from the tables. As the hands in the clock tower approach midnight, a silent and poetic procession enters. Young men and women appear carrying a large vase of flowers. The last dance begins. The lights go out, the fettered Shrovetide is led away to be drowned, the bear is dealt with, and the contrabass put in a corner, not to be played again. And with the tolling of midnight bells, it's over for another year.
