Phoeate, Sunday, Sept. 22,196$ A twilight concert of popular and western songs by the Phoenix Male Orpheus Chorus will highlight the one- day Dons Club tour to the Superstition Mountains on Sunday, Oct. 6. The program will begin at 6 p.m. and will conclude with the moon rising over the mountains. (There's a full moon on tap that night.) Under the direction of Ralph Hess, the chorus has received acclaim for concerts in Honolulu, Vienna, Montreal, Guadala* jara and throughout Arizona. Tickets to the event, to be staged at the amphitheater at the Dons Base Camp, will be limited to seating capacity. Tickets may be purchased at the Dons Desk in the lobby of the Republic and Gazette Building, 120 E. Van Buren: $L50 for adults and 75 cents for children six through 12 years of age. Those wishing to bus to the concert site will leave at 1 p.m. from Second and Polk streets. Bus fare, which includes admission to the concert, is $6.25 per person. All proceeds will go to the chorus for use in its work with the Boys Chorus and musical scholarships. Coffee will be furnished by the Dons, but guests must provide their own food and drinking water for the informal desert picnic. Homesick for Colorful Fall? Go North Ralph Hess, Right, Director, And Robert Gray, Center, President Of The Orpheus Male Chorus, And Don's Club President George Dearing Orpheus Chorus Sings For Dons Club Oct. 6 ByMARYBONNm FLAGSTAFF - It's Indian summer, that metamofphic Season when an odor of change pervades the air. Transplanted Midwestefners are apt to sniff the autumn breeze and visualize "back home" scenes of flaming fall foliage in place of palms and cactus. You don't have to settle for memories when a one-day trip will take you to the real thing. Arizona, where elevations range from Sonoran through Alpine, has its own deciduous forests where leaves go through the annual change from green to gold to russet. One of the most spectacular is the huge stand of aspen below the Arizona Snow Bowl in Coconino National Forest. The leaves usually reach full fall color the first two weeks in October. In two dimensions, number and size of trees, it is one of the world's largest concentrations of aspen. Fed by a wide belt of volcanic ash, the trees stand like an army of tall, white soldiers over hundreds of acres, measuring as much as 20 inches in diameter. In summer their round, quaking leaves shimmer endlessly in the breeze. In the fall, they shed a drift of riotous color over the blue-tipped spruce below. A bonus for sightseers at the Snow Bowl is a mile- and-a-half ski lift, which means you can look down on a wide panorama of color, as well as up at a canopy of leaves. Hike through the forest, picnic if you like, make some color closeups of the aspen and Englemann spruce. Then let a Riblet chair loft you along 30 feet above the ground from an elevation of 9,600 up to 11,600 feet, almost to the top of Arizona's highest mountains, the San Francisco Peaks. There, standing near tun- berline among the gnarled grey trunks of Bristlecone pine, yon can look down over the bright splash of the aspen, across die pinon and Juniper, across the desert and to points In Utah and Nevada. Lodge opera* tor AI Grasmoen claims that on a clear day (and with good eyes?) it's possible to see as far as California and old Mexico. Maybe. But the interesting view is the close one, with Flagstaff lying off to the south, and Oak Creek Canyon southwest. The Riblet lift is a string of two-person chairs suspended from a steel cable on either side of a row of huge steel columns. The ride up takes about 30 minutes. An attendant at the top phones the operator at the lodge when to slow or stop ARIZONA Two to enjoy Yuletide and they're both in mexico *I2 EXCITING, COLORFUL PINATA DAYS Leaving L.A.

Quietness engulfs you like a void as you rise above the ponderosas and impassable- looking rock slides below. We'd want a heavy cover of soft snow over that rough mountainside before starting down it on skis. You may spend as much sightseeing time as you wish en top before boarding another chair for the downward ride. This is a great time for photographers. Try to have a fresh roll of film in your camera, and be sure the camera is tied to you or the chair. It's also a cold time. Wear a heavy jacket and slacks, or carry a lap robe. The ski lift will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends through Oct. 13. Charge for <lie ride is $1.50 for children, $2.50 for adults, and a maximum of $10 for a family. Snacks and sandwiches are available at the lodge, and a picnic area is near* by, but all water has to be hauled in. Overnight lodging U plentiful in Flagstaff. To reach the Snow Bowl, take U.S. 180 north from Flagstaff toward the Grand Canyon. About 14 miles out, turn east on a well-marked dirt road. It's seven miles to the lodge. The road is dusty, with hairpin turns, but is usually well graded. To round out a weekend trip, see the two Pioneer museums in Flagstaff, or detour through scenic Oak Creek Canyon. Sunset and Meteor Craters, Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert are also in easy driving distance of Flagstaff. Tours A Travel Boon OAKLAND, Calif. - Passage by the U.S. Senate (Sept. 13) of a bill permitting low cost "package tours" abroad marks the "beginning of a new era in American travel," Glenn A. Cramer, president of Trans International Airlines, said. The administration-sponsored bill, which th€ President is expected to sign shortly, was approved by the House last month. The measure Improvers the Civil Aeronautic* Board to permit charter airlines such as TIA to fly "Inclusive tours" conducted by tour operators to foreign countries. Cramer said that the air fare on a TIA "package tour" would be 30-40 per cent less than the lowest fare offered by any scheduled line and that "the tours will make foreign vacations possible for the first time for millions of Americans who presently cannot afford to travel abroad." Under the bill, travel agencies will be able to sell "package tours" abroad to individuals that include transportation on a charter airline, hotels and other services. Cramer stated that the bill will enable "individuals to enjoy the economy of group travel abroad for the first time." Only lix out of every 100 Americans have ever traveled to a foreign country and more than hall the people in the United State* have newer been op In an airplane, Cramer said. TIA, a subsidiary of Transamerica Corp. of San Francisco, plans to fly inclusive tours conducted by tour opef* ators to Europe, the Orient. South America and other parts of the world. The company plans "for TIA to fly 10,000 people to the Far East: on inclusive tours during a 40-week, period starting in March 1969." The tour will include stops in Taipei, Hong Kong and other parts of The Orient. The company expects to carry 5.000 persons to South America on inclusive tours this year and double that number in 1969, Cramer said. CLOCK MAD AT WORLD NOTTINGHAM, England (UPI) - The village clock started chiming at five o'clock and went on to chime 900 times. A clockmaker called in to investigate said it "apparently went mad."
