(CP) Every Sunday Rufus Moody hikes over six miles up the rugged Slatechuck Mountain to dig up about 100 pounds of argillite and bring it down on his back. v? s, Mr. Moody is a 50-year-old Indian artist from the Queen Charlotte Islands who makes the weekly backpacking ex- pedition to get the clay slate he carves into totem poles depicting the legends of the Haidas. The soft black rock comes from a quarry carefully guarded by the Haidas, the only ones who can work with argillite. "It's rough he said. "I cross a creek 30 times. I don't go by the trail, I go by the feel of the forest." But it's worth it because he gets the price he wants for his carvings. Recently, he sold a six-foot eight-inch totem pole valued at to a West Vancouver collector. It's the biggest argillite totem pole anywhere, weighing 300 pounds. The base alone weighs 110. "It's pretty heavy, I know. I brought the base down the mountain by backpack." It took him 3% months of freehand carving to bring out the raven, the beaver, and other creatures of the Haida mythology. Lawson's have just the holiday spot!

It's a town of industry and development, serving as one of the half dozen major economic centres of Europe and hosting one of the world's biggest international trade fairs. Yet it's also a town of culture, the most advanced in the country, drawing in so many that it's the busiest junction in southeast Europe and the largest tourist center. Zagreb. The second largest city in Yugoslavia. The capital of Croatia. Yugoslavia's answer to New York. Why haven't more people heard of it? It couldn't be that Zagreb's statistics are unimpressive: In a city of it would be tough to cram in more than its current list of 20 museums, a dozen galleries, 20 old palaces, 10 theatres, 12 historic cathedrals, more than a dozen monuments, and a philharmonic orchestra. Zagreb is considered Yugoslavia's capital of culture. Nor could it be the absence of aesthetics, for Zagreb is just short of overdone: an old town of baroque dignity with cobblestone charm, colored Herald Tra vel fortifications of ecclesiastical Kaptol and the burghers' town of Grabec, .it was finally united politically and architecturally after years of quiet feuding during the baroque era. And now the still thriving upper town (Gornji Grad) is again being merged with a new lower town. Cathedral spires versus congress center domes. Public square monuments versus skyscrapers. with public squares on every corner and three quarters oi it carved into parks and private gardens. Besides being the capital of Croatia, Zagreb is the excursion center, surrounded by such places as Piltvice, Europe's most colorful national park; Sllunj, a complex of wooden cottages and water mills: Crikvenica, a gentle holiday resort; the historic cities of Senj, Karlobag and Varazdin; and the metropolitan centers of Rijeka and Ljubljana, the capital of neighboring Slovenia. In addition, within 40 miles of Zagreb there are 200 castles, mansions or former country homes of noblemen, as well as the birthplace of President Tito at Kumrovec. All three elements culture, aesthetics, and native color combine to make Zagreb the most all-round big city in Yugoslavia. Belgrade, unfortunately, is much less colorful due to its war losses. It also often poses more of a challenge to tourists for several reasons, including the frequently used Cyrillic alphabet. Zagreb is more dynamic in most respects, even weatherwise. Besides character, Zagreb also reveals much about Yugoslav history and politics. Even the mere layout of the city draws from politics and the past. Like most Yugoslav cities, Zagreb is divided into two areas, the old medieval fortified town in the central city where most of the sights are and the industrial development with its residential border on the outside. The old fort with modern embellishments is a common type of city throughout the country because of the turbulent Yugoslav history of fending against various invaders, the Avars and Franks, Turks and Tartars, Hungarians, and others. Zagreb is unusual in that its union system of old and new goes even further into the religious and secular. Once divided into the two separate Charter Flights to.
