Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, November 22, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Home on wheels Sam Wolfenson and his family have been living in this bus for the past six years. Equipped with all the comforts of home, the bus has an added attraction, an airplane canopy from a B 45 jet bomber for a skylight. Travelling throughout the Pacific Northwest and Canada, the Wolfensons are from the United States, but say they move so much they have no home state.

THOMAS COOK TRAVEL IN EDMONTON....10453 Jasper Avenue7429-2537 IN CALGARY....334 7th Avenue IN LETHBRIDGE....309 5th Street Princess Cruises Resort undergoing facelift OSTEND, Belgium (AP) Ostend, the seaside resort for naughty weekends in the gay '90s, is going to lose some last relics of the Victorians in its first major facelift in nearly a century. The new look will be reso- lutely modern. Two wars, floods and real estate devel- opers have already taken a heavy toll of the old Ostend. The first sight of the conti- nent for the eloping couple on the deck of the posh side- wheeler from Britain used to be a shoreline of fussy villas and gingerbread towers emerging slowly from the mist. Now it's an almost un- broken row of high-rise con- crete apartment houses. The fabulously kitsch ca- sino, centre of high life in Leopold Il's days vanished during the First World War. Most of the elaborate villas and the lush hotels later fell victim to the Nazi army's urge to wall up the Atlantic against an Allied attack. Practically all that remains to evoke the past splendor is the modernized race course and the Thermes, or baths, where sea-water therapy is applied for various ailments and where a spring provides pungent mineral water. There are also the massive railway station sitting along- side the harbor and a handful of hotels. Extending its sea- weed-covered pillars beyond the harbor stands the old wooden pier, battered by sev- eral encounters with ships tossed about by the tempera- mental North Sea. Mayor Jean Piers is intent on removing what he consid- ers ungainly constructions that are an eyesore in a pre- dominantly modern resort. nights; breakfast, dinner; direct from Calgary Sunihgrvt Great holidays, great value Hawaii from S409 14 via WatJart 7J7 MazaHan from S3Q9 7 nigt-'s Itp-i S340 via Wirdgir 747 Puerto Vallarta from 19 San Diego nighlt nights, f California 1ly 'drive -..gn-., gntf via __ __ 1rom fWA Contact anyone of thasa accradttad Traval Agencies ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL AMA TRAVEL AGENCY Centra Village Mall-Phone 328-3201 805-5th Ave. S.-Phone 328-7921 P.

The Canadians stayed, and dined, primarily in tourist ho- tels and restaurants. But so do most tourists. In any event, the food was such that only the waistlines suffered, and there were indeed some memorable meals including one which, we were told, was typical Rus- sian cuisine. It included a salad of fresh greens and strips of fish, covered with sour cream; a piping hot dish of mushrooms, with sour cream; cabbage soup (Czar Expo revitalized Spokane downtown New York Times Service SPOKANE It was too cold to quack, so the ducks, their beaks tucked under their feathers stood around shivering as trucks rumbled in and out of the gates hauling away the remains of Expo 74, Spokane's pocket-sized world's fair. The fair closed the first weekend in November after a successful six-month run And now Russian workmen were crating up the contents of the Soviet pavilion while a crude- ly hand-lettered sign in front of the United States pavilion warned, "Beware of vicious dogs." David H Rodgers, Spokane's mayor, was still somewhat beside himself this week over the notion that "lit- tle old Spokane" a town that most people mispronounce and think is a Seattle suburb, had actually staged a world's fair, revitalized its downtown business section, and ac- quired, by conversion of the fair site, a 50-acre downtown riverfront park all without a financial deficit. Expo '74 was the first world's fair held in the United States to be officially sanc- tioned by the Bureau of Inter- national Expositions, in Paris, which sets standards for such undertakings. It was a category B fair that is, one committed to a single theme: "Celebrating tomorrow's fresh, new environment" and 11 nations and 37 commer- cial exhibitors participated. Some environmentalists called the fair an environmen- tal sell-out. Nonetheless, P. Spurney, Expos's general manager, says that the fair helped raise environmental awareness. "I think we accomplished the goals we set for he said. "We increased awareness of environmental responsibilities. We didn't claim to have the answers to problems. style) with all kinds of vegetables and a chicken base (and sour a hefty meat stew covered with scalloped potatoes; and for dessert, thin pancakes with honey. The accompanying drink was a type of mead The hot dishes were served in in- dividual iron pots and were bubbling hot. There are other lasting im- pressions of Russia. There was, for example, the Army-Leningrad hockey game on television. Army was leading 10-2 when we tuned in early in the third period so it was not a cliff-hanger. However, the artistry was there to behold as Leningrad scored twice and Army once in a clean, no holding, fast, sharp passing game. The great delight of that game was that the announcer credited his viewers with some ability to see what was going on. Whereas Canadian announcers tend to do a high pitched play by play as though they had a radio audience, this chap was con- tent to let his viewers watch, and confined himself to remarks on the less obvious developments. Another highly favorable impression was the Moscow- Leningrad rather the roadbed. There was no lurching of the train. The ride was of such smoothness that all five Canadians agreed they had never slept better on a train. Legend has it that there is only one curve in the 400-mile run, and that arose because when Peter the Great was drawing a line between the two cities, showing where the railway was to be built, his thumb stuck over the edge of the it was built the way it was drawn along the -The Herald Tra vel course of the Czar's thumb nail. The serious question, how- ever, is why can't we have a level roadbed of such smooth- ness. Certainly our climate is no worse. Speaking of climate, it was interesting to note that the Russians, like Canadians, have some little going. Muscuvites comment on the damp Leningrad air. People in Leningrad speak of how cold it gets in Moscow It almost sounds like a western Canadian arguing with a Montrealer or Torontoman ibout their respective climate FARMERS' and RANCHERS' TOUR (To Idaho, Nevada, California, Mexico) Reno, San Francisco, Holly- wood, Disneyland, Vegas, aboard the 747 Jumbo Sightseeing Cruiser of Northern But.
