Both Sophia, the capital with about one million population, and Plovdiv, the second larg- est city with some piovide focal points for ex- ploring mountain scenery, his- torical sites and red-brick, rrd-tilcci collages. An old legend says that God hadn't thought of Bulgaria mitil creation was almost completed So lie poured out everything left on this com- paratively small seas, mountain peaks, lakes, forests, rivers and sunsliinc. Sophia and Plovdiv ana' their surroundings have an abundance of all these gifts except the sea. You have to go the Black Sea resorts for that. Air fare to the farthest one, Gr.lden Sands with nir- pcrt at Varna, is less than ?28 return. The mair. highways are gccd and there isn't loo much traffic. Plovdiv is only flfi jr.iles from Sophia and from there you can drive to Roman ruins ami to a modem moun- tain resort. At Plovdiv's large Trimon- ium Hotel, named after the early Roman town, the rates are around wilh breakfast included for a single room. There's a delightful outdoor and terraced courtyard din- ing-room. Especially interesting i n Plovdiv is the Ethnographic Museum, housed in the 11117 home of a rich merckmt. Downtown, in the Archaeolog- ical Museum, is a gold treas- ure of seven drinking vessels from the fourth century EC. Up on one of Plovdiv's six hills is a huge granite statue of a Russian soldier, a menu- Canadians seek more conventions OTTAWA As part of a fed- eral program to bring more in- ternational meetings to Can- ada, the Canadian Government Travel Bureau will host its third annual Convention Seminar, Oc- tober 5 and 6, 1971 at the Sky- line Hotel, Ottawa. While conventions are already a significant contributor lo the income of the Canadian travel industry, this year's seminar will be the first to explore the potential for Canada of inter- national conventions. Four Eur- opean experts will report on all aspects of the international congress market as it relates to this country. The seminar will bring to- gether representatives of all sectors of the Canadian travel industry with a special interest in conventions, including hotels, earners, provincial and munici- pal convention bureaus. Approx- imately 160 are expected to at- tend. ment lo the Russian army for Iheir helu in the liberation cf Bulgaria in from the 500- year Turkish yoke. Ifissar, just 20 miles north, has fourth century walls of lira old Roman town still standing, including a gale. About 55 miles away is Pamporovo, one of Bulgaria's two largest mountain resells, equally patronized for winter sports. The god of music, Or- pheus, is supposed to have been born in Uiis Rhodope Mountain range. En route to the resort Is Ascnovgrad, site of the Back- ovo monastery. In these early Bulgarian monasteries, the churches and living quarters huddle together inside a wall, with mountains towering above them. In one of the churches is a fascinating painting of the Last Judgment with sedate figures dresseii in modern costumes entering the gale of heaven and on the clher side, devils prodding Iheir victims in a flow of hell fire. Debris of war soon salvaged Vietnamese craftsmen obtain raw materials from the debris of war. They salvage the sheet metal from a downed helicop- ter and hammer it into kitchen pots and olher items. TOURIST ATTRACTION Bulgaria, cen Ired around Sophia, Ihe capital, and Plovdiv, the second-largest cify, offers a new tourisl area for Canadians. II has a bit of everylhing seas, mountain peaks, lakes, foresls, rivers and sunshine. At top is an 1347 house in Plovdiv that is now the Elhnographic Museum.

By TJRIJ KIIINDARIA PAHIS (Router) Times lave changed at the "temple f Nudity." Fifty years ago a well- ounded dancer at the Folies Bergeres could set her sights n an admiring duke or a vis- ing millionaire. Her talents, usually well-ex- 3osed on stage, were usually avishly rewarded with jewels, ouquets, caviar and cham- ague. Today, it is different. The fa- mous Folies girls now are most- housewives, students, nurses r working girls making some ocket money. And the unmarried dancers o longer hold out for some well heeled aristocrat. They im, as most others, for a rca- onahly secure middle-class life. Now a Folies girl is just as kcly to marry one of the oen working with her in the ronis line, a backstage tcch- ician or stagehand. Hope of plucking someone rom the audience today o m e w h a t diminished since he spectators are probably part a group lour. The changed attitudes of the ed tights.

The Folies Bergercs did just that to become the world's most successful show. More than 000 people pack into the thea- tre every year, giving it an an- nual turnover of more than million.
