HANZEL Extra Wear _ror Every Pair Street South South will benefit from Spokane fair By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer Southern Alberta will derive substantial tourism benefits from the Spokane World's Fair, an Expo '74 spokesman said Wednesday. Jerry Ford, a public relations official for the fair, was speaking to the fifth an- nual meeting of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta Mr Ford said visitors com- ing from parts of Canada farther east or north would have to pass through Southern Alberta and southeastern British Columbia to get to Spokane. Since the fair could be seen in two or three days, visitors from the United States would fan out over the rest of the inland Pacific Northwest. including Southern Alberta All this, he said, would result in more tourists coming here. Mr. Ford told The Herald that details of Canadian par- ticipation in the fair had not been settled but the federal government and the provinces of Alberta and British Colum- bia would take part. He said the Canadian por- tion would occupy Crystal Island, the smaller of two islands in the Spokane River on which the fair is centred. Other exhibits will be on Havermale Island and the riverbanks. He said the islands were located just above Spokane Falls. The original settlement grew up around these falls, Mr. Ford told the tourism group, but much of the beauty of the site was spoiled by ear- ly development. The fair will renew the in- ner area of Spokane, he said, and in keeping with the en- vironmental theme of the fair, the area will become a river- bank park when it ends. Only two pavilions will be retained, those of the United States and the State of Washington The U S pavilion will be the largest in the fair. It will feature environmental ex- hibits including information centres and a computer capable of providing en- vironmental quality data on any given day For example, said Mr. Ford, a visitor wanting to know the air pollu- tion index for New York city and the water purity of the Hudson River could find these out After the fair, the pavilion will become a federal govern- ment office The Washington pavilion will feature a performing arts theatre and a gallery of American art. Theatrical and operatic groups will also per- form elsewhere in the city, said Mr. Ford, and sports events, including professional ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwarb Bldg. 222 5tti St. S.

Japan, Mexico, France and Taiwan. Commercial exhibitors will include Ford, General Motors, General Electric, United Airlines. Bell Telephones, Boeing and Kodak. Energy firms will also give their views on the environment, said Mr. Ford. Hospitality services were organized to help cope with an expected five million visitors. Spokane's normal population, including suburbs, is about said Mr Ford Available accommodation within a large radius of the city has been recorded, and a downtown park will be used as an open-air youth hostel Visitors should write to Hospitality Services giving their vacation plans and will be matched with accom- modation, he said A deposit of one night's fee will confirm the reservation. Mr. Ford said that in addi- tion to hotels, motels, campgrounds and trailer parks, several colleges and universities in the Spokane area have their dormitories available, providing about 000 beds. Tickets to the grounds can also be ordered early, he said. While there will be no charge for admission to pavilions, the adult gate charge will be But adult tickets, good for one day, ordered before the end of the vear, will cost Hotels and restaurants are also being urged to keep prices down, if possible. Except for normal price in- creases, said Mr. Ford, "If a motel is going to work through Hospitality Services, he has to give us some assurance that quality standards, cleanliness standards, and price stan- dards will be maintained. Construction and prepara- tion throughout Spokane is moving ahead rapidly, he said.
