"I have the same measurements as Miss America— with a slight discount!" Illinois Tourist Mission To Europe Outlines Strategy SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)—The leader of the Illinois tourist mission to Europe says: "We're not going to expect people to come 8,000 miles to see Abraham Lincoln's tomb. It's not logical." Nevertheless, Richard Newman, chief of the state's new tourism division, expects them to come. at the home of Dick Conner, where a wiener roast will be a feature of the session. Committee for the occasion includes the families of Willard Palmer, Donaid Jones, Holland Conner and iJon- ald England. ?1O0 Grand Ave. Phoue 342-64X2 Wednesday Night SPECIAL CHICKEN IN THE BASKET 75c CLUB 34 Homer and Ruby Walker Roue 34 AIR CONDITIONED For Your Comfort ENTERTAINMENT He's going to try to entice them with the bait of doing business in Chicago. Then he will attempt to persuade them to mix in the pleasure of a tour. "What I am going to say to prospects is: 'If you want to sell your goods in America, come to Chicago, the heartland of the U.S.A.* What I'm going to try to do is to get them to bypass New York. "Then we say: 'When you plan your trip to Chicago, bring your wife and family. After traveling thousands of miles, remember you are only 55 minutes away from Lincolnland, which played such an important part in United States history. See his home, tomb and New Salem.'" First State Effort The Illinois tourist mission is believed to be the first attempted by a state. It is a trailer to a trade mission by officers of more than 50 Illinois-based firms trying to step up exports. This is believed to be also the first trade mission by a state to Europe. Newman, a former Champaign advertising man, says the two missions are bound together because the average European can't come to the United States but businessmen can afford it. Illinois will play host to a group of leading travel agents and editors in Frankfurt, Paris and London. Newman also will make a less elaborate pitch in Rome. Gov. Otto Kerner will head the Illinois trade mission to Europe Oct. 17-Nov. 6. Kerner will speak at a luncheon for the travel experts. Then Newman will have a "shirt-sleeve, working session" showing a film of Illinois and explaining travel kits. These contain such details as how to get around the state, where to stay, car rentals and a list of Chicago conventions for 1964. "We hope these business tourists will generate other tourists," Newman said. "They will be centers of influence. They will speak to clubs and other groups and start some excitement." After the general meeting, Newman will visit individually with the agents and offer the Illinois Board of Economic Development as a clearing house for information and help. The tourist division is under the board's jurisdiction. By thinking in terms of ability, rather than disability, employers are finding that disabled workers have a multitude of abilities which may be profitably utilized by the companies.
