Soulli Africa's resort spas are rising in popularity TORONTO The abundance of mineral springs scattered throughout South Africa's fou: provinces has brought about the development of a network of inland resort spas which are steadily growing in popularity with visitors and Soui'i Afri- cans alike. Attractive to those who pre- fer a relaxing vacation retreat, HID spas are set in picturesque rural countryside, yet offer all the modern holiday amenities. Some fire seasonal, others are open year-round, and rates are generally moderate. Soulli Africa has more than 80 mineral and hot spring; which, among them, offer near- ly all the different kinds of medicinal waters known lo Eur- ope and North America. Mod- erately saline, salt, sulphate, triple, siliceous and chalybeat- ic classifications are included. In Canada, more detailed in- formation on these spas, includ- ing rates, may be obtained from the South African Tourist Cor- poration, 2 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto. Bermuda curbs HAMILTON, Bermuda (CP) Ships that allow gambling on the high seas may no longer make regular calls at Bermuda. Although technically the Ber- muda government cannot con- trol the actions of ships ouli'ide its territorial limits, it has a powerful weapon. This is a per- mit to come lo Bermuda. All liners wanting to call here have to get this permit before they can anchor or dock in the col- ony's waters There are three liners this summer making weekly calls from the cast coast of the United States. Two have gam- bling facilities and the third was Try trekking tours of Indian Himalayas DAR.TEELING. India For those people with o sense of adventure, trekking tours of Ihc Mian Himalaya are available this summer. The tours will be led by Com- mander M. S. Kohli. conqueror of Annapooma and the men who successfully led the Indian Everest expedition in 1965. According to Commander Kohli, treks should take three weeks, although shorter but equally interesting lours can be completed in one week. Treks are available in Uie Darjeeling, Kulu-Manali and Kashmir areas. Visitors can combine Irekking trips w i t h lours to several other areas in [ndia. planning to introduce the fea- ture. The new Cunard liner Cunard Adventurer actually has a ca- sino on board and as a result of the government decree this is to h e closed at all limes while (he ship is making weekly calls here from Norfolk, Va. The irony in the ban is thai widespread gambling is carried on openly in Bermuda, despite (he colony's law which makes it illegal. The dice game of crown and anchor is played openly at cricket mrlches on various grounds. Special areas are sel aside at the ground for the game. A local lawyer has sajc Ihe game is illegal, but authori- ties here have not commented. When the first big crickel match of the summer comes up shortly a lot of Bermudians are going lo be walching closely lo see if any action is taken by the authorities.

No one is building any- thing of limited size lo replace them. It doesn't pay. The dying process would be a long and quiet, one, but the situ- alioji is underscored by the opening of three new hotels, all large, brimming with plastic and expensive.

Why, a "lot of those little hotels that closed were sordid little places really." TJie government reports more than hotel beds in Paris, but other sources say only are government-approved and meant for tourists. The gov- cnmcnt also points to a pro- gram to encourage the building of new hotels. It grants loans of up lo 50 per cent on construc- tion costs, and next year will probably assist, in the buying ot land. But there is a big catch', the hotel you build in Paris musl have ion or more rooms. Not many liltle-hotcl owners can come up with enough cash to move inlo this kind of invest- ment. Big money is behind the three new Mcridien, Le P. L .M a 1 n t Jacques and L'Hotel du Club Mediterranee. Their major backers are, re- spectively.
