The guide warns young travel- lers Toronto "is the last city with a decent night life you will hit until you reach Vancouver." Hub Braithwailc, Saskatoon Board of Trade president, said: "I suppose it all depends on what you're looking for, what your mentality is. "They were looking for things Saskatchewan doesn't have while forgetting that a hell of a lot of Americans come fishing and hunting up here as if il were the only place in the world." SNAP JUDGMENT R. C. Webster, associate dep- uty minister of industry and commerce, said: "Students are probably too young to know ev- erything." "You have to spend some time in the country.

If you want to vacation in lux- urious surroundings there are many big luxury hotels. But if you're in the mood for informal- ity and intimacy, not to mention reasonable prices, choose one of the delightful Inns of Jamai- all approved by the Jamai- Tourist Board. And this year, if you want to go camp- ing under the stars at the edge of the sea, there is the new Strawberry Fields, which pro- vides all equipment from screen- ed tent to flapjack flipper. Near the relatively unexplor- ed southern coast of the island another new pleasure has been added at Paradise Jungle Park. Here you can play golf, on a nine-hole course laced by rivers and giant trees, though your game might suffer if you watch or listen to the nearly 300 spec- ies of birds inhabiting the park, jungle gardens and farm. Very soon, too, in an Island blessed with gardens, there will te another botanical garden and park with picnic grounds and other pleasant amenities at Tr- near Monlego Bay. It is created now by the Spec- ial Projects department of the Jamaica Tourist Hoard which was responsible for many of the new attractions Jamaica now has, such as rafting on the Martha Brae and Rio Grande.
