It's that tall narrow white thing; you can't hardly miss it. And most tourists recognize the Lincoln Memorial. It's the one with Lincoln in it. The Jefferson memorial has Jefferson. But what is a tourist supposed to do after he's seen all the usual sights? And what's he going to be able to go home with that all the other home town folks didn't see on their trips to Washington? For these people, and also for Washingtonians who need something to write to their back home folks or just want to get a deeper look at Washington, there is a new visitors' center in town. It's called Ralph Nader's Public Citizen Visitors Center, at 120015th St. NW., and it's open for tourist advice, as well as lectures and films, from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. Mondays through Fridays, Directly on the Blue Atlantic Contessa MOTOR INN Brand New for the '74 Season 1004 S.

The idea is to give tourists more to take home than a bronze paperweight in the shape of the White House. "Tourism in Washington, D. C., should be more than an exercise in gawking and Grey-Lining and a necessarily hurried tour through the U. S. Congress," Nader said in the opening statement. "The objective is to have the tourist become issue-oriented and citizen-conscious · along pathways of his or her interest." This is not to say that you are not allowed to have fun on your Washington vacation. The center has quite a few politics-plus-excitement suggestions to offer: Go to consumer product safety commission hearings and watch demonstrations of soft drink bottles exploding and hairsprays gagging people. And they say this is a great place to watch lobbyists in action, mostly being agitated. For celebrity-watchers, see the Senate Health Insurance Hearings. Sen. Edward Kennedy is likely to be there. If you want to see Sen. Edmund Muskie, try the Clean Air Hearings. Or you name the Senator or Repre^ sentative, and they'll tell you what committee room he hangs out in. Like to hear some good spy stuff? The Intergovernmental Relations Subcommittee is having some good surveillance hearings. Or, if you don't want to go to hearings, they'll tell you how to set up an appointment to heckle your congressman. Children love that, says the center's staff. On the other hand, if the children have been driving you crazy the whole trip, they'll recommend a visit to the Planned Parenthood- 9*r _'·*' ·· The COMPLETE FAMILY RESORT Rooms, Apartments, Suites, Penthouses 6 Pools (2 enclosed for year round) 3 Tennis Courts, Playground Restaurant, Recreation Room 19 Championship Golf Courses Supervised Children's Program Bring the Whole Family . ..

If you belong to the Sierra Club, how about going over to its national headquarters and telling everybody what your pet project is? Or whatever other organization you belong to, the chances are that its national headquarters are here and that someone at it can register your feelings about what it is doing or should be doing. · If you've got an interest in guns, either shooting them or banning them, run over to the National Rifle Assn. and unload your opinions. "We're not trying to push off any ideology." said director Fay Mauro. "The idea is educating people to make themselves heard, whatever they think. "People come here and look at those big impressive buildings and they don't realize that that is their government and they can have an impact on it. B e h i n d those big walls are people like them, whom they can talk to." In the center's first week, about 300 people came through -- about half tourists, staff member Crissie Cagle estimates, and about half Washingtonians on their lunch hours. Most days, the center offers speakers, such as the Office of Consumer Affairs spokesman who explained how elderly people who couldn't hear through their princess telephones complained until the telephone company adjusted its sets to be compatible with hearing aids; and films, such as "Ralph Nader: the Consum- . er Advocate" and "Let The Seller Beware." So far, the center has also: acted as a referral service to a man who wasn't satisfied with the compensation from an airlines which,lost his bag; recommended that women call D. C. Mayor Walter Washington's office and ask to be included when he_saw the Status of Women Committee; distributed pamphlets suggesting visits to the Agricultural Research Center; extolled the tourist attractions of the Goddard Space Flight Center, the Pentagon's Community Relations Division tours and other such off-the-beaten- track spots; and posted the calendars of the Women's Health Festival and the gay liberation movement. The staff and volunteers (they are hoping for more so -that evening hours will be possible) don't use the standard guide book to answer visitors' question. Their reference shelf is the Congressional Directory and the Almanac of American Politics. And if you want to ask or comment or complain about a hotel' or restaurant, they'll refer you to the Board o f ' Trade's Washington Area Convention and Visitors' Bureau. *-ffii*tiSSSSii{iSSSSSi»^tttt~.^.~rt^.*^ s .
