Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, November 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Islands have special magic EDINBURGH (CP) The Scotland fiave their own special magic. They offer quiet hamlets and tiny coves, bays with sil- ver sands, gentle streams and imposing mountains and hills. And the visitor can see some- thing of the ancient Celtic peoples and traditions that have made the Scottish isles so engrossing in scores of novels and films. The the Or- kneys and Shetlands in the far north and Lewis, Barra and Mull m the 'west to Arran in the holidays for many tastes. Geologists and botanists mingle with painters and bird- watchers; sea anglers, walkers and climbers find plenty to occupy them and many islands have miles of sandy beaches. Little craft shops offer tweeds and sweat- ers, tartans and jewelry. Passport Photos Candid Weddings Picture Framing Photo Supplies A. E. CROSS STUDIO Phone 328-0111 710 3rd Awe. S. Phone 328-0222.

Nattily- dressed and long-haired couples gyrate precariously on platform shoes. It could be in the West or in Moscow. But this is the Sea- gull Restaurant in Vologda, a remote town in the Russian north. Like anywhere else in the Soviet Union, such areas are fast catching up on the good things in life. Vologda, a town of inhabitants, small by Soviet standards, lies 300 miles directly north of Moscow, deep in the vast expanses of the northern forests, called taiga. Founded in 1147 as a trad- ing centre for furs and wood, the ancient town is largely un- discovered by the world, both Soviet and for- eign. But as the Vologzhanye (Russian for Vologda-dwell- ers) show by their fashionable dress, such as locally-pro- duced and audaciously-flared blue jeans, the outside world does not pass them by. They are proud of their town, and they want to put it high on the Soviet tourist iti- nerary. KREMLIN RESTORED The first step has been the superb restoration of the town's 17th-century Kremlin. The St. Sophiya Cathedral, with its priceless collection of frescoes and icons, has been renewed in dazzling white, and the Kremlin's bell-tower, equally white, can be seen for miles around. "We're hoping that once people find out about Vologda, they'll start flocking said one young volunteer restorer. "Most of all we'd like foreign- ers to come along, as we could do with some foreign currency for our work." But not only the Kremlin has been refurbished to give the town a fresh look. All the low-profile 19th-century build- ings that make up the nucleus of the town, long an adminis- trative centre for its region, have been brightly recolored. .Mostly they have become light blue and soft brown but a j daring yellow of a brightness never seen in Moscow has ob- viously caught the town- planners' imagination. A symbol of the attraction the town soon hopes to present for visitors is a huge 5.000-seat theatre going up near the centre, planned to open in November. HOPE FOR TOURISTS Asked how the town council hoped to fill a building that size, one Vologzhanin said, with some pride: "With a theatre like that, we should even get Muslim Magomayev (the Soviet Union's most pop- ular singer) to come and sing for us. And then, just think how many people would come to Vologda." Apart from the relatively few enthusiasts of ancient Russian architecture who visit Vologda dunng its short summer, spring and autumn see scores of hunters passing through the town's river port on their way to the rich hunt- ing grounds of the Taiga. Every day while the river is unfrozen, two paddle steam- ers chug sedately downstream towards the north. The only other way to get into the for- ests is by light plane, or by Earya, hovercraft-like boats which connoisseurs usually avoid as too hectic and cramped. Standing on the Kremlin's the guide will expose your film if you try to photograph, because strategically important roller- bearing works feature the visitor can see that where Vologda ends, forest begins, stretching almost un- interrupted by human set- tlement north to Archangel.
