National Park Service plans to spend more than $15 million and officials estimate that, including private development, approximately §30 million will be spent on tourist facilities in the entire area. What's to see and do? Right now the chief attraction is watching construction of the mighty dam, now about half completed and scheduled to be finished in 1964. Several vantage points are located on Hwy. 89, near Page. WIIRN COMPLETED, the huge area will offer, in addition to camping and sightseeing, such water sports as boating, skiing, fishing (buss, crappie, catfish, bluep.ill and trout), and swimming on a year-around basis. In the same general area are Navajo Bridge, east of. the Vermillion Cliffs and south of Page, and Rainbow National Monument, in Utah. Best way to get there from the Southland is to turn north on Hwy. 89 at Flagstaff, Ariz. GREYHOUND announces a series of escorted tours of the Pacific Northwest and Canada which sound great. Included on the itinerary are the redwood forests north of San Francisco; the rugged Oregon coast, considered to be one of the world's finest marine drives; a 4 \/ 2 -hour steamer cruise from Vancouver to Victoria, B.C.; a voyage through island-studded Puget Going Places (Continued from Page 28) with its vast complex of terminal buildings and runways built over highways. Ride the subway, especially if you've never done it before. Above all, walk wherever the spirit moves you.

For something unusual,, try one of the Sunday walking tours of the Museum of the City of New York (phone LEhigh 4-1672 for reservations; cost $2.50). They take small guided groups through little known areas of great geographic and historic appeal.
