(AP) - Between (he winter and summer seasons in this recreation town, population falls to what it was in the recent past, when a few families of Greek descent kept flocks of sheep on the slopes of Gord Creek Canyon — now the silt of this new "boom town of the Rockies." Vail is a favorite skiing spot for President Gerald Ford, who has a condominium here. The wide canyon, its swift, clear stream and the still- snowy mountain range above are named for an English nobleman, Lord Gore, who brought a hunting party here in the early 1800s. This was the summer home of Ute Indians until gold and silver hunters came, late in the last century. After the prospectors came lumbermen, who stripped some hills of trees to build railroads and mines. Disgusted at being dispossessed, the Indians set spite fires, buring thousands of acres of other forest. Snowfalls are profuse in this part of Colorado. Snow is called white gold now. But it was a big bother to the pioneers, though they learned to get around on skis. They called them snowshoes. (Today's snowshoes were called webs then.) In this rough Rocky Mountain region, only the river valleys were homesteaded. The mountains became part of the White River National Forest, used mostly for lumbering. Then, in 1940, Colorado's highway department managed to get a paved road (U.S. 6) over a pass in the Gore Range, connecting the remote valley with Grand Junction, 150 miles west, and Denver, 100 miles east. . The mountain pass was named after Colorado's chief highway engineer, Charlie Vail. And use of the mountains for winter sports began. During World War II, ski troopers were trained at Camp Hale, 20 miles south of here. One of the trainees was Peter Seibert, later the founding father of Vail Village ski resort. Outdcorsman Seibert and Earl Eaton, a native of the valley, in 1957 hiked to the summit of its southside mountain. They found hidden from the highway spacious bowls and open slopes, marvelously suited to skiing. The fires of the past century had made them open country. Seibert, Eaton and. others .they their project bought valley sheep ranches and got permits for ski runs in the national forest In the summer of '62 they built the original resort, whose 10 square miles of ski slopes make it the most spacious in the nation. They called the village after the pass that made it possible. The mountain, too, bears the Vail name now. Vail Village was so popular and grew so fast that it had to incorporate as a town four years later. Today it is a remarkable municipality in many ways, a new 20th-century kind of town whose sole industry is recreation — both winter and summer kinds. There are only 600 year-round residents. But any winter weekend the population swells to over 10,000. Vail, at an 8,200- foot altitude, has summer temperatures in the 70s during the day, in the 5ps at night. It offers jeeping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, tennis, golf and swimming. The ski-lift gondolas start their summer runs for sightseers June 1. After the original construction Vail Associates, the limited partnership headed by Seibert, began selling land to developers and builders, and to individuals who built fashionable homes on the lower mountainsides. Second-home condominium apartments are Vail favorites. Vail's first buildings were Austrian-Apline, designed by Fitzhugh Scott, Milwaukee architect-land planner. Their deceptively random placement, their tall stance and whimsical trim are delightful. Later buildings are more urbane, influenced by the San Francisco and Denver architects who were attracted here. What Vail has become is due to Seibert's own high hopes for the place, plus the kind of people he attracted. Mayor John A. Dobspn is a Vermonter who left the vice presidency of a TV station to open a shop by the covered bridge in the original village. Rod Slifer, here from the beginning, now heads the Vail Recreation District, which provides golf and tennis facilities for the town. He is also chairman of the planning and zoning commission for Eagle County, in which Vail is located. Town Manager Terrell Minger came here four years ago from Boulder, Colo., a city renowned for pioneering new controlled directions for urban growth. Vail outgrew its original master plan, stretching up and down the valley. It's now five miles long, a mile and a half wide. Most streets are closed to CROSSWORD PUZZLE AGMSS 30. Engineering 1.

People move around on foot or take the bit minibuses which circulate from 7 a.m. to midnight. The town is building a 1,000- car, four-level parking garage into a hillside at the town's entry beside Interstate 70, which now crosses the valley north of Vail. Vail's revenue sources would cheer any property-lax payer. Only 12 per cent of municipal income is from property tax. Of the other sources, 36 per cent is sales tax; 8 per cent, recreational fees; and 16 per cent, such items as parking fees, building permits, fines — and ice skating.

This cup is usually green and splits into five segments known us sepals. The portion of the calyx called the sepals protect the delicate parts of the flower Usually the sepals are green, but sometimes are the most brilliant parts of the flower, us with the blossoms of the Four- o clock. The flower and its many parts are of interest to the gardener for esthetic qualities, such as color, texture fragrance, etc. The botanist is concerned with the flower and its structure because of its importance in the propagation of the plant. Flowering plants, the most recently ^nrfnA are the dolninant P' ants today. There are about -50 000 species, including woody trees, shrubs, vines and herbs. Examination of the flower parts of plants show the kinship of plants of different size, form and growth. 8-31 (Donna Mezo of Wankegan, 111, wins a prize for this uties- tum You can win SI I) cash plus AP's handsome World Yearbook if your question, mailed on a postcard to Junior Editors in care of t/iis newspaper, is selected for a prize.)
