Grows In HALIFAX CCP) A hiking trail stretching from the northern tip of Cape Breton Island to the New Brunswick border has been proposed for Nova Scotia, and oiie of its backers says it could lengthen the province's tourist season by several months. David Home of Halifax, a trip coordinator with the Ca- nadian Youth Hostels Associa- tion, said hiking is a recrea- tion which has not actively been practised in North America to the extent it is in European countries, but it is growing in popularity. "We are confronted with ov- ercrowded, dirty and noisy cities. These problems can be solved, but Ihe growing reali- zation that they do exist has led many people to take a new, closer and, in some cases, a last look at a chang- ing As a result of this environ- mental deterioration, he said, more and more people are leaving the main highways to experience natures sights and sounds, many by leaving their cars 'and exploring on foot. Horne said the best hiking in Nova Scotia is in the spring and fall of the when the number of tourists is small. "Thus, not only would a well-marked hiking trail begin a new major recreation but it would lengthen the tourist season by several months." An Acadian Trail, he said, could join the Fundy Walking Trail, an existing marked trail starting near Moncton, N.B., and ending some 30 miles away, near the entrance of New Brunswick's Fundy National Park. The trail could Ihen con- tinue through the park to the New Brunswick-Maine border, where it could be extended to meet the Appalachian Trail. He said the Appalachian Trail is perhaps tbe best- known trail in North America, extending some miles from Maine to Georgia and attracting "thousands of hik- ers every year." The Acadian Trail could also be extended from New Brunswick to form part of a proposed Trans-Can- ada Trail. Home said an Acadian Trail will not come about in a few years, but will require the ef- forts of many individuals and groups. "With the example of the thousands who hike along the Appalachian Trail every year, this would be quite a signifi- cant contribution to tourism in Nova he said. "We have a rugged coast- 1 i n e providing spectacular views for the hiker.

The cine who went, first was a North Vietnam- ese private wounded during the fighting with some of the sarne soldiers waiting their turn in the operating room. The passions and hatreds of the Indochina war have led to at t nettles on both sides in Cam- bodia, but to the surgeons and doctors at Monivong Military Hospital the war stops at Ihe frnnt door. The administrative officer, Maj. Phat Meng Ly, says: "It is strictly forbidden here to dis- criminate against any patient in the hospital because of Iris na- tionality or which side he was; fighting on. Here we only save' lives.
