Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta --------Wednesday, Oclobor 6, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HfRALD If, HOUR OF DECISION NEAR Moment of truth for his government's representation in the United Nations ap- proaching, President Chiang Kai-shek on a recent public appearance on Taiwan to honor Chinese war dead showed no lessening of the vigor with which he has dominated Nationalist China for four decades. Canada ranks No. 2 for conventions OTTAWA fCPl The major source of U.S. convention busi- American Society of Association Canada second only to Califor- nia as the world's prime spot for conventions. Officers of the Canadian Gov- ernment Travel Bureau used this fact today to goad about 100 leading members of hotels, con- vention bureaus and travel com- panies into a two-day discussion on ways to become number one. David Livingstone and Ben Carbonetto, travel bureau offi- cers in charge of marketing and convention promotion respec- tively, said in separate speeches to the convention on conventions that Canada makes more than S500 million annually from con- vention business. Mr. Livingstone said provin- cial and municipal taxes would rise between 18 and 23 per cent above "f a i r 1 y normal in- creases" without travel dollars. Estimating Ilia! tin1 North American convention business is worth about S7 billion a year, Mr. Livingstone said "Canada may in total bo receiving as much as 10 per cent Of that business." Mr. Carbonetto said despite Canada's attraction as a con- vention site and the fact that HIP. country is gelling a good share of business from the U.S., there is a need to better pro- mote sales meetings and the travel market. Canada's convention attrac- tions are being promoted at major convention during meetings primarily at the convention of the American So- ciety of Association Executives the government travel bu- reau. At Hie last society meeting early this year Canada merged the second-choice spot for a con- vention, despite competition by 250 American exhibitors and several foreign countries, Mr. Carbonetto said. The Canadian pavilion at such meetings is organized by the travel bureau and shared by in- terested organizations such as municipal and provincial con- vention bureaus. T. R. G. Fletcher, director of the federal tourism department, said that despite the country's position, Canada could not af- ford to be content with the con- vention business it receives. "When you are number two, you try harder." A number of speakers will al- I tempt to map out ways to im- prove Canadian convention busi- ness during the two-day session. Negligent driver plan outlined WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. government outlined today plans for a major ncv: program in the control of negligent driv- ers.

Douglas W. Toms, administra- tor of the national highway traf- fic safety administration, an- nounced the program at a meet- ing of women specializing in highway safety. He said plan- ning for a new control system includes: of inexpensive simula- tors and test machines, to make the driver-licence examination a better test of both skills and knowledge. use of probation- ary permits, particularly for new young drivers. The permits would be cancelled as a pattern of devious behavior developed. re-examination, as already required in many states. use of medical screen- ing panels, should any medical problems crop up. Those woifd be aimed at suspending the lic- ences of deviant drivers, and re- stricting those of persons with physical handicaps. "With regard to our senior cit we would in some cases restrict, driving to day- light hours, to non-fvccway roads, and perhaps to limited geographical area Toms said. "We think this is a far more positive program than flat-out revocation of driver licences."
