Nature produces her most spectacular show for those who choose to visit Yellow- stone National Park in the autumn and Yellowstone Park Company aids in the discovery of this annual extravaganza by keeping lodging and recrea- tion facilities open through the Park's usually mild Indian Summer. Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and Cabins remain open until October 6 this year and Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Cabins are open until October 4.

A statement released by Hon. Mitchell Sharp, Secretary of State for Exter- nal Affairs, said that arrangements have been made for a modest but unique Canadian participation. Expo '74 officials who were disappointed by Canada's re- cent cancellation of its original plans for participa- tion were "extremely elated" with the announcement. The Government of Canada will build a park on Canon Island, one of two small islands in the Spokane River where it runs through the downtown Spokane exposition site. "This Canadian park, which is in keeping with the en- vironmental theme of the ex- hibition, is being built as an expression of Canadian friendship and goodwill towards the United States and in particular the citizens of the Pacific Northwest and the Canadian an- nouncement said. The park will be developed with trees and shrubs from Canada and will remain public park after Expo '74 closes ac- cording to the statement. The four Western provinces are being invited to participate with exhibits of their own. British Columbia has already announced that it will have a substsantial exhibit at Expo '74. 50 Ways to Cut Food Costs Why is liver a good buy? When are store coupons real- ly a saving?

Moose, deer, elk, and even bison may be seen near the roadsides this time of year as they begin to graze the lower elevations. Invigorating Indian Summer weather produces some of the best fishing of the year, according to many sport fishermen. Anglers may fish for scrappy brown, rainbow, brook and cutthroat trout in 400 miles of blue ribbon streams in the Park. No fishing license is required; only a free Park fishing per- mit. The turn of the season brings a peace to the Park that many visitors especially will appreciate. Many summer vacationers have departed and the fall visitor can spend time alone with nature watching the first snows silver the mountain peaks or relaxing in front of a crackling fire. Visitors return to Malta TORONTO Holidaymakers are returning to the little Mediterranean island of Malta in zooming numbers. The island has had its ups and downs so far as tourism is concerned in recent years, but according to Norman Barrett, manager in Canada for British Airways European Division, traffic carried into and out of the island by the airline this summer increased by almost 50 per cent over a year ago. In the month of August alone, Mr. Barrett said, an un- precedented 65-additional flight sectors had to be operated between London and Valletta despite the schedul- ing of an additional ten direct Trident 3 flights a week each way. It is expected that when figures become available for September, it too will turn out to be a boom month.

Stockholm hotels entice visitors Cheaper than staying home MONTREAL If the cost of living is worrying you, 28 Stockholm hotels are trying to make it cheaper to visit Sweden than to stay home. They have joined under the aegis of the Stockholm Tourist Association in a scheme which offers four days and three nights of accommodation for as little as per person. The Stockholm Packages prices include continental breakfast, tips and taxes plus discount on sightseeing tours and admission to a long list of major attractions in the Swedish capital. To vary the pace, another Stockholm special offers a two-day trip into Swedish archipelago including transportation on a genuine old skerry steamer and a night at the Seglar Hotellet in Sandhamn, the country's premier seaside resort, for only per person, again including breakfast, tips and taxes. Put end to end, it's practically a week's vacation for only per person for bed, breakfast and good many extras and only half that for children who share a room with their parents. The lowest price in the Stockholm Packages is for double occupancy in old-time family hotels with a bath down the hall, twin-bedded rooms with bath are per person for the same period and singles with bath are extra nights cost to The list of participating hotels includes the Grand Foresta, Reisen, Diplomat and other highly rated establishments.

He stood at the door of the Concordia Club and wished all those who were leaving a very sincere "Goodnight' Have a safe drive home." His distinc- tive German accent implied such warmth and friendliness that a few people, perhaps not accustomed to this kind of sincerity, turned back to look at him. The sentiment was real. Gemutlichkeit! A feeling of warmth, affection and friendship Gemutlichkeit! The keyword of the Kitchener- Waterloo Oktoberfest. And how appropriate that it should happen here at the Con- cordia, the oldest of the four German clubs in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Over people gather here every day of the Oktoberfest to share in Gemutlichkeit. The main hal! of the club and the adjoining tent are decked out in banners and bunting that is typically German; and German bands, singers and dancers encourage the par- ticipants to stand on chairs and toast each other and the Oktoberfest Celebration is nothing new to the Concordia Club, or to the other three German clubs, the Alpine, the Schwaben. and the Transylvania. Since the inception of the Concordia over a hundred years ago, Kitchener Waterloo has been host to a number of German or song and choir competitions, which gathered people of German origin from all over North America and Europe But it was only recently that these celebrations of beer, food, and song were opened to the public. The German com- munity of Waterloo County now invites everyone, everywhere, to come and join in Gemutlichkeit, this year October 5-13.

The Herald Tra vel Ancient Iran city favored tourist spot SHIRAZ, Iran (Reuter) The ancient Iranian city of Shiraz is rapidly emerging as a favorite spot for tourists, many of them escaping from the blazing heat of the Gulf coast. A large proportion of the visitors are wealthy Arabs from the Gulf emirates and the southern Iranian islands, where life in summer is made unbearable by sweltering heat, warm winds and high humidity. Shiraz is by tradition the city of poets, roses and night- ingales, cypresses and wine, bulbous domes and terraced gardens. It is perched feet up on the Iranian Plateau, where the sun shines less fiercely and a cool breeze blows at night. The city has a relaxed at- mosphere, modern hotels and hospitable people. There are honking taxis in the spacious avenues, but there are still peaceful gardens, graceful old buildings and a sense of the past. As the tourists come in un- precedented numbers, city of- ficials have called on the city's a quar- ter million of open their doors to visitors and make up the shortage of hotel beds. Shiraz, despite its size and its modern airport and hotels, is less brash and cosmopoli- tan than Tehran. Two of its tourist sights which have all the charm of old Iran, were in fact built in this century. These are the tombs of the medieval poets Hafiz and Saadi. Set among orange trees and well-planned gardens on the city outskirts, the tombs have traditional colonnades, colored tiles and inscriptions. Shiraz is the capital of Pars province, the historic region which gave its name to Per- sia and to the Parsi language now spoken by most Iranians. Many tourists, however, head out of Shiraz to visit Iran's oldest architectural masterpiece Not far to the north, two or three hours drive on the road to the romantic city of Isfa- han, lies the cradle of Persian history, the ancient palaces from where Cyrus, Darius and Xerxes ruled their vast em- pires 2.500 years ago. Here stands the lonely tornb of Cyrus, a gabled stone edi- fice surrounded by ruined pal- aces. Not far away is Persepolis, the huge man-made platform where the descendants of Cyrus built a massive com- plex of palaces. Nestling at the foot of a range of hills, the palaces look out over a vast plain. The edge of the platform falls away 60 feet down to the impressive tented village built in 1971 to house the heads of state from around the world who came to celebrate the anniver- sary of the Iranian monarchy. On the palace stairways, the carvings show figures from all over the empire bringing their tribute to Darius and Xerxes. Passport Photos Candid Weddings Picture Framing Supplies A. E.
