London Theatres, Paris Nightlife On Hi-Life Tours Most people just dream about a midwinter holiday in one or more great European cities, then they reluctantly shrug it off because most tours are "too expensive" or "too little for what you pay." This coming winter season Air France has come up with the answer: a practically irresistible new program, billed as "Hi-Life Time," which presents two weeks of the best in London theatre, Paris nightlife, and all the glories of Rome, at prices starting at $297 including return air fare from Montreal. The best part of it is that one can plan one's own vacation for the two weeks and pick the category of hotels (economy, standard or first class) that suits one's budget. All hotels regardless of category, were selected for their location in the Black Market Still Alive In Russia By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent MOSCOW (AP) - Some thoughts on revisiting the Soviet Union: The kids are not above a dash of old-fashioned private enterprise. For example, Uzbek youngsters in Tashkent, the central Asian cotton capital, swiped flowers from the park, made them into bouquets and did a thriving business selling them to tourists. 2 Campgrounds Open In Winter FIELD - Kicking Horse and Chancellor Peak campgrounds in Yoho National Pairk, though officially closed for the season, will be available to visitors throughout the winter, Harley Webb, park superintendent announced here.

The black market in goods and money remains, too. In a Moscow restaurant an elegant waiter, finding an American seated alone, bent down and whispered in faultless English: "Begpardon, sir, but would you like to sell some dollars? I can sell you two rubles for a dollar." Indeed he could, and then he could sell the same dollars for more than twice that. centre of town as well as for quality of service and accommodations. A unique feature of Hi-Life Time is that before the departure one can purchase multipurpose coupons as part of the land arrangement cost. These coupons are good for plays in London at top theatres like the National, Aldwych or Royal Court and a selection from three glittering Paris nightspots (Lido, Moulin Rouge or Eve of Paris). Two valuable and highly attractive features of the coupons are that they may be used (1) to apply to additional car rental - on an unlimited mileage basis - and (2) to dine at one or several of 35 fine restaurants in London, Paris and Rome in the program's new "dine-around" plan. The coupon idea lets the traveller do what he wants with the money he has spent for the land portion of his tour and, even better, allows him to change his mind once he gets there. Two-city Hi-Life Time tours to Paris and London are priced from $297 for two weeks using economy hotels. Adding Rome as a third capital, from $404. In addition to the coupons to be used for one's choke of entertainment, the tour price includes all air transportation, hotels, breakfast every morning, sightseeing tours in each city, one or two days' car rental with unlimited mileage (without using coupons), entrance to casino in London, wine tasting in Paris and tea at the Galeries Lafayette, all trans fers, and assistance of a tour representative upon arrival and departure in each city. Many weekly departures are scheduled from November 29 through April 18 from Montreal as well as from November 7 through April 24 from New York. Additional information about Hi-Life tours is available from travel agents and Air France. TRAFFIC SPARSE There is something eerie about the streets of provincial Soviet cities and the sparseness of motor vehicle traffic. By night there is hardly any traffic at all. Early on a sunny Sunday morning in Tashkent, a city of 1,300,000, you can stand in the middle of the main street and look for miles in either direction without seeing a single passenger car. In Irkutsk, a city of 450,000 which is a hub of Siberian commerce, you have to hunt for the traffic lights. However, the scarcity of traffic can be perilous. The squares are huge and the boulevards wide. The people are unaccus tomed to cars. Most pedestrian accidents are caused by walking tim seldom is hit head-on. into the sides of cars.
