Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, March 5, 1971 Visitors flock to Hawaii TTie balmy Hawaiian Islands of smiling landscapes and sparkling waiters are a perennial enticement to winter vacationers from both the United States and Japan. After a brief luU last spring, Hawaii has regained and retains its continuing popularity. An estimated 22,000 visiitors from the American mainland and 13,000 from Japan spent the Christmias-and-New Year's holidays in Hawaii. The first half of last year, January through June, it had 9.4 per cent fewer visitors from the east (America) than during the same period the year before, but two record months in July and August changed that to a gain of 5.9 per cent for the first eight months over the same period the previous year. During the same period, the nimiber of westbound visitors from the Far East in 1970 increased 14.9 per cent over the first eight months of 1969.

Cyclone-wrecked reefs recovering Australia's Great Barrier Reef tourist ti-ade, badly hit less than 12 months ago by cyclone Ada, has made a spectacular recovery. The island resorts, after a disaster that cost 13 lives and $A12,00O,0OO have once again become the nation's major international and local tourist attraction. Business, in fact, has reached a new high - a record 250,-000 visitors in the past 12 months (diu-ing 1970). And, in expectation of a booming future, the Australian Tourist Commission and the Queensland State Government have clj-awn up a master plan to cope with development and tourist traffic for the next 15 years. Cmrently, only 13 of the 600-odd islands sti-ung along the 1250 miles of the reef are operating as tourist resorts, but several more have been surveyed as possible sites. ii'Iany experts elieve that the area, despite its rapid growth in the past 20 years, is still in its infancy. Cyclone Ada, the worst in the history of the Great Ban-ier Reef, roared out of the Coral Sea and across the Whitsunday Passage on Saturday, January 17, 1970. In lis direct path were the largest island resorts on the reef - Hayman, Daydream and South Mollc. Tlie fury of the winds, officially estimate 1 at more than 100 mph, wrecked iKindreds of holiday lodges, luxury pleasiu-e laundies and jetties, uprooted 100ft high trees and levelled acres of dense forest. In the first days after the cyclone many of the resorts seemed likely to close down permanently but, rebuilding began and now, just 12 months and millions of dollars later, the islands are a picture of tropical beauty. Yet, there are still grim reminders of Ada's ferocity - huge Hoop Pine trees, some 50 years old, are just beginning to sprout new greenery. Many are twisted and buckled into grotesque shapes. Others are snapped off and permanently stunted; and in seme areas pieces of roofing iron are still entwined around trees 40ft above tlie ground. Color flight information Canada's first RCA Limited in co-operation with CP Air has introduced Canada's first color fUght information display system at IVIontreal's International A i r-port. Introduction of the system was made to gauge customer reaction, in serving as an aid to the travelling public, by imiquely visualizmg flight announcements. A spokesman for RCA Limited, pointed out a major advantage of the new color system is the instant recognition by the viewer of desired flight information.

British waitresses have own names for menu "Are you having a pud, Luv?^ By HUGH A. MULLIGAN LONDON (AP) - Shakespeare's rose by any other name might smell as sweet, but some of the names that British waitresses have for the day's delicacies can put a visiting chap off his feed for weeks. The menu of any semi-posh place may glitter with Continental elegance-words Uke "entremets" and "farina-ceous" and "legumes varies" -but such m-etensions vanish once the little lady with the pad and pencil puts in an appearance. "Are you taking the set, Luv^" she briskly inquires, pencil poised truiculently over the bill of fare. The five million tourists who visit  the British Isles each year soon learn that they are neither being ask^l to dance nor accused of making off with the chinaware. The set is the day's set menu, the table d'hote from which there is no textual deviation without paying ttie price. "Luv" is a unisBx form of address, more informal than sir or madame and a trifle less intimate than "ducks." Adventures in living language really begin when the customer strikes out for himself into the colunms of a la carte. Steaks, for instance, are usually available in two cuts: "rump" or FUlet," the latter invariably pronounced to rhyme with "swill it." They come under the generic heading of grills, as in the accusatory question, "are you having a grill?" NOT FISH NOR FOWL Even so, they sound more appetizing than "bangers and mash," which are sausages and mashed potatoes, or "boiled eammon," which is neither fish nor fowl but ordinary, everyday ham; or steak and kidney pie. Those not having a grill might be inclined toward "a frv": fried bacon, ham or sausage-oops bangers - served with eggs amy style and, in the Midlands, with "drippings," fat left in the refrigerator from yesterday's roast and spread on bread. "Now what about a veg, Luv?" Procrastinate too long between the braised celery and the sauteed cabbage, and she's apt to suggest "some luv'erly swedes and sprouts," which are turnips and brus-sels sprouts, a culinary curiosity that is flogged off in the swankiest London clubs as "good, honest British food." . . and cliips, of course." At the end of every meal comes the question that haunts the calorie counters. "Are you having a pud'" The word rhymes with "hood," rathflr than "mud," and designates any dessert from "stodge," a pudding made with suet, to "steamed sultana," a sort of sponge cake, and "trifle," a combination of cake, pudduig, custard and fruit drowned in cream. And be careful about pointing to the currant bun on the dessert trolley that the Italians call a Garibaldi biscuit.
