Ihf /.·* Time* LONDON - They are beginning to appear in larger numbers here these days, wearing backpacks and jeans or more smartly turned out, gawking at Big Ben and St. Paul's Cathedral. They are puzzling over the drinking hours, trampling through the art galleries and museums, catching the Hyde Park corner orators and the theater shows, talking in a Babel of tongues, poring anxiously over their maps. Last year, Britain was host to 8 million of them. The American contingent was smaller than usual; the West European was larger. And they spent here and with British air and other carriers a total of $2.1 billion. "It is more difficult to estimate how many tourists we will have this year -there are lots of imponderables such as the oil crisis, inflation, our difficulties earlier this year with the three- day week, that sort of thing, you know -- but we are hoping for 8.5 million who will spend some $2.4 million," a British Tourist Authority (BTA) spokesman said. The BTA, London's Tourist Board, the hoteliers and shopkeepers, the cab drivers and everyone else connected with the tourist industry are hoping fervently that more visitors will come to Britain this year. Putting it in the most crass commercial terms, Britain needs their money. And it also hopes that tourists returning home will be able to dispel the impressions gained in many places abroad -- from reports about Britain's continuing economic woes, its intermittent bomb blasts, London's mounting violent crime rate and various other troubles -that the country is going down the drain. But even as their country needs them, the British regard tourists with mixed emotions. Some eye the visitors kindly. The hoteliers and shopkeepers, less emotional, see them as customers. The con men weigh them as victims. And some Britons see tourists as menacing pests. The other day, Lord Henley, chairman of the Council for the Protection of Rural England, warned a conference gloomily of "the devastation that mass tourism can bring" to this country. The London Municipal Administration has been trying doggedly but unsuccessfully to clap-a hotel tax on tourists, obstensibly to help meet the city's increasing public transport and other costs and to divert visitors from the capital. The majority of tourists who come to Britain never leave London. This month's bulletin from London's tourist board says . despairingly, "Any day now we can expect the opening chords of the great annual chorus" of British complaint about foreign visitors here. "Tourists will be blamed for the crowded buses and tubes (subways), the congestion in the streets, the scarcity .of theater seats, the non- availability of taxis--in fact for just about every irrita- tion Londoners feel throughout the year." the bulletin predicted. Such compalints "betray a xenophobic resentment of foreigners," the bulletin noted accurately, as "some kind of menacing barbarian horde and a threat to our way of life." Britain should welcome tourists.the bulletin went on, because without them "bus services would be even further depleted, prices of facil- » · · · · * » · "*fjji* * * · WCM-DOOIOffl, ities would be further increased, nightclubs and restaurants would disappear, and many theaters would close down.". Although still .major tourist attractions, neither London nor Britain is the Mecaa it used to be. Food, hotel, shop, taxicab and theater prices generally are lower than, say, in Paris, but the days of London and Britain as a bargain have long gone. AIUNTK MMH. NX 11511 N*r IM itllt Cily.
