Travel-Recreation- Mexico—Diversion for Any Tourist By JIM CROSSLEY (NEA Writer) Tn Mexico, breakfast at 10 a.m. means thin corn pancakes called tortillas, beans and coffee. For most, the main meal comes around 1:30 to 2 p.m. On the table will be stew in tomato sauce, cooked mixtures called moles, soups and tortillas again. If f*ing »ut in the evening, expect to be lonesome at a restaurant table before 9:30 p.m. The cocktail hour doesn't start before the stores and offices close at 7 to 8 p.m. These eating customs are all the more reason for sampling the charms and difference of our neighbor to the south as increasing hundreds of Americans are doing with each succeeding winter season. Well over 250 plane flights carry passengers from North America every week. Thirteen talks Mrs. Harrison ut electric heat J^^l v s \r^ "• convenient.'' "There 1 * hardly any maintenance coil*.'

Incidentally, that "D. F." stands for "federal district." In the United States, Mexico D. F. is generally referred to as Mexico City though natives ordinarily call it "Mexico," like "New York" (the city) within "New York" (the state). There are other pleasant methods of journeying into the country in addition to rapid air dashes. Year by year, motoring grows easier. Tourist-aid cars patrol the main roads to give free assistance in emergencies. Highways improve. Everyone in Mexico knows what the phrase "fill 'er up" means. Trailerites, following guide books, will find good camps for $2 a day. Railroads continue to offer a comfortable mode of transportation. Missouri Pacific's Texas Eagle acts as a main line into Mexico, carrying passengers funneling into St. Louis on other rail lines. At Laredo, Tex., a taxi ride connects the Texas Eagle with the Aztec Eagle of the Mexican National Railway. Potismuggling dramatics, now being reported from the border, add an air of intrigue to such a border crossing. To avoid delays due to drug-enforcement efforts, travelers are advised to carry any prescription medicines in their original containers to identify them as legal drugs. Those who enjoy rail travel should investigate the excursion trip on the chihuahua to Pacific Railroad. On the right-of-way, 73 tunnels and 27 bridges take diesel Pullman or lounge-buffet cars along canyons which rival those of the Colorado, crossing the Continental Divide three times. Sea travel, with its atmosphere of luxury and relaxation, has been increasing in importance. Princess Cruises from Los Angeles offer 7-day to 14- day expeditions to Acapulco and other coastal resort cities with frequent sailings. Several other lines have extensive programs, combining cruising southward and flying back north. Commodore Cruise Line has been the only one operating from the East Coast, carrying passengers from Miami on two- week Mexican excursions via Veracruz. In a very effective effort to assist potential visitors, the Mexico Trave Digest, 1100 with an annual guide to its country, covering everything. It can be ordered for $3.50 from Mexico Travel Digest, 110 Glendon Ave., Los Angeles, Calif. 90024. Growing Popularity of Acapulco as a Fashionable Winter Resort Mas Stimulated Winter Travel to Mexico. Convention Issue Loses DES MOINES (AP) - The unofficial — and not quite complete — word is that Iowa voters have once again turned down a proposal to call a constitutional convention. The proposal was on the general election ballot a week ago, but only because 'the state constitution requires it every 10 years. There has never been such a convention since Iowa's constitution was drafted in 1857. With unofficial returns in from 98 of the 99 counties in Iowa, it looked as if there were about 205,000 votes for the convention and about 210,000 against it. That's a difference of just over one per cent. The one county excluded from those figures was Powesihiek, where counting continued Tuesday. Early returns last week indicated the measure might be passed, and state officials expressed their amazement that there was even a close vote. Both major political parties had recommended the proposal be turned down, But some observers figured many voters simply confused the issue with three otiher con- stituttonail amendments, each of which received heavy support and no reported opposition. Only once in Iowa history have voters called for a constitutional convention. That was in 1920, but the legislature never set up the machinery, and the convention wasn't held. MAY SEEK TEST FRANKFORT, Ky. (A) — Legislative leaders may seek a court test on whether they may violate a state constitutional ban to achieve the "one man-one vote" concept in reapportionment. There now is a prohibition against splitting any of Kentucky's 120 counties in redistricting. Plumbing Law Hit at Hearing DES MOINES (AP) — The multiplicity of local building codes in Iowa and the state plumbing code must share the blame for the Jack of low cost housing in Iowa, the Legislative Building Codes Study Committee has been told. The state plumbing law "Is standing in the way of the people of Iowa" and "is so restrictive we are not able to produce the kind of housing people are entitled to," said Thomas Teas, chairman of a Mason City citizens group testifying Monday. Teas described the low cost housing situation in Mason City: "Anything under $18,000 just isn't there." The legislative committee is studying a proposed state building code. The committee has been talc such a code would encourage and enable manufacturers to produce modular low cost housing. Teas, an attorney heading a group appointed by Mason City Mayor Tom Jolas, said the state plumbing law makes inspection and licensing of the modular homes expensive and impracti cal. This, ihe said, is because, the statute requires cities of more than 6,000 population to license plumbers locally and to inspeo plumbing. A proposed law being studies by the committee would exemp from local codes any factory- built housing approved by the state. A state building code wouU be optional, so cities could keep their own local codes if the: wished. BOARD TO MEET The Carroll County Boart of Education will meet in regu lar session Monday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. in the Carroll County court house, County Supt. Lyl 0. Tenold announced Tuesday Airlines May Be as Sick as Railroads By JOHN CUNNIFF (AP Business Analyst) NEW YORK (AP) - Some ol he major airlines are seeking emission to reduce the num- >er of flights. Others are laying off scores of workers. And the once enthusiastic parade of passengers seems to be marking ime. Charges of unfair government regulation and unfair marketplace competition are widespread. Fears are expressed oudly about a crisis in financ- ng morern equipment. And some of the major lines might be in the red for the year. Reflecting the problems, and compounding some of them, prices of airlines stocks hav« dropped more sharply than the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The financial situation, as portrayed by the Air Transport Association, an industry group, is hair-raising. Head it: "In the first quarter of 1970 the scheduled airlines recorded their largest quarterly lost in history. The 12 major airlines as a group had losses of $43 million; six of the 12 individually suffered losses; all nine regional airlines had losses totaling $36 million; and all three cargo airlines had losses totaling $11 million." Was this a one-quarter fluke? The ATA says no. "Preliminary data for the first six months of 1970 indicated an industry loss of $58 million, the worst half- year results in history." Scheduled airlines will show a loss for the year, it said. If the recent history of the airlines were portrayed on a line graph, it would resemble very much the smokey wake left by an ascending jet—which then plunged unexpectedly into a turbulent air pocket. Through the mid-1960s the industry enjoyed tremendous growth and good profits, buoyed by a vigorous economy and a general feeling among consumers that times were good—for good. But as economic controls began slowing economic activity, the airlines were affected more than most industries. Passenger growth, for example, averaged 17 per cent a year from 1963 to 1968, the ATA states. But now it forecasts a drop to only 2 per cent for domestic operations by the end of the year.
