STAPLE DIET The osprey is almost entirely a fish-eater, seizing its prey on the surface or at times even dis- appear i n g underwater in pur- suit. London too expensive for overseas visitors? By CY FOX LONDON (CP) Summer tourist booms in Britain may Kave passed (heir peak. This possibility is stirring mutual recrimination in official circles here. The Inige buses toting small regiments of garishly clad vis- itors still crawl through Txm- don's traffic-packed streets on the well-worn routes that lead from one legendary sight to an- other. Columns of tourists bearing maps and cameras remain a common feature of famous thorr ough fares like Fleet Street or the precincts of such cele- brated buildings as St. Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Ab- bey, But all the linguistic babel and Ihe array of gawking faces haven't concealed the slight rip- ple of concern in some quarters the possible sense of re- lief the mes- sage seemingly conveyed by the latest statistics, which I cover the number of foreign j visitors coming to this country j in July. Usually a peak period for tourism, July saw almost visitors not including regular travellers from tile Commonwealth and the Irish Republic coming to Britain. Tills was one per cent below the volume for the same month last year. Another source of discomfort for officials of the tourist in- dustry is the slight slackening in bookings at some major ho- tels during Julv and August, 1072. On the otlier hand, consola- tion is to be derived from Ihe fact that during the January- July period (his year (he num- ber of foreign visitors totalled 3.18 million, seven per cent more than in the same months of 1971. Experts In Ihe trade suggest a wide range of reasons for the apparent levelling-out in sum- mer tourism. London based newspapers have suggested that the rising cost of living here may have something to do witli the tour- ist statistics. The Guardian reports that overseas travellers now consid- er London "impossibly expen- with bad service receiv- ed in return for the money charged. A sidewalk Interviewer for The Evening News found tha Leisurely tours during winter Hol- idays, a tour package for the traveller who wants a taste of both lyondon and the English countryside, is being offered by Air Canada SOAC this winter. The new package, effective November, 1972, through March, 1973, offers a choice of car, rail or bus transportation to enable the traveller to enjoy a leisurely holiday. "it is the upward swing 1 n prices which probably prompt- ed the criticism" voiced about Britain by overseas travel writers.

Mancroft, president of the xmdon Tourist Board, spoke of he British capital bursting at :he seams with visitors. FACILITIES STRAINED Mancroft was not alone In feeling that too many tourisls are being concentrated in the London area instead of being encouraged to visit other parts of Britain. There is also the opinion held by many residents of the capi- tal that tourism may have reached a point of diminishing returns because of the strain it places on London's overcrowd- ed amenities and living space. The latest attempted rebut- tal of Mancroft's point of view came from Sir Alexander Glen, chairman of the British Tourist Authority. "Irresponsible talk recently of London bursting at the seams has helped to tarnish a good Glen complained in his assessment of the July tourist statistics.

The Monashees, in which Three Valley is situated, have long been known as a gold- bearing area, with history to prove the point. In the last cen- tury there were gold rushes al Downie Creek on the Columbia and in Monashee Pass, which attracted thousands of miners to the rushing creeks of the area. But panning for gold Is a slow proposition these days in the Monashees. Most of the creeks have been worked over so often the gold panner will have diffi- culty making wages. When Gordon Bell started his ghost town at Three Valley, some ten years ago, the idea was to build a replica of an old mining town, complete with all the facilities that went along with it. There's a general store, blacksmith shop, church, school- house, hotel and jail a whole village in the nineteenth century Idiom. Every year, thousands of visitors roam the streets, take pictures of each other in front of the buildings, or browse through Bell's fabulous collec- tion of artifacts. Most of the buildings have been moved bodily from their original sites, often log by log. Now visitors will he able to take part in the mining life, by panning gold in a sluice box la the main street of Ihe his- toric village. And there will be two sourdoughs on hand to give free lessons in gold panning. Jim Cooper and Buck Brad- bury, who have spent most of their lives working tbe creeks of British Columbia, have set up a sure-fire panning deal, providing gold-bearing gravel from a nearby mine shaft. The visitor pans liis own gold, after a lesson from the sourdoughs, and can take home UK contents of his pan. Nuggets valued from to have been found in the gravel, so ther's a chance the gold panner might even make a profit on the deal. For those who aren't confident about their panning ability, or for those who are in a hurry, Bell provides gold in plastic vials for a nominal amount. But most of the visitors would rather pan it themselves. Three Valley Gap ghost town Is located on the Trans Canada Highway, just west of Revel- stoke. Among other attractions at the site are a mining rail oad, dining room, souvenir hop and motel. trave on a standby basis and save can save a whopping 40 on our new regular economy fares by joining our "Swing Air Club" and by travelling economy class on a slartdby basis.
