NEW YORK fAPI—Undo Snm hopes to entertain more foreign Visitors this year than last. But the big drive to encourage reverse tourism, and thus gnnipr needed dollars, has run into problems, chiefly money, distance, language. Government agencies and private enterprises are trying to dent these barriers. And today they they have some advice from an Unsolicited source an official of the Soviet travel agency Intour- ist, in New York to see about setting up direct Moscow-New York air service. He says Russian visitors would increase if the United States would advertise there, would end Visa red. tape, and cut prices.

But if the Canadian plan to force its dollar below the value of the American dollar goes through, Americans who want to sell goods there or who get dividends from invest- Imenls in Canada may be on the ' losing side. The turnabout in the relative rating of the two dollars is only part of the frequently changing and often confusing status of the Ynnkee dollar in world money markets. It's little more than a year ago that many Americans wore puzzled and annoyed to find they had to put up as much as $1.06 to jlniy what a Canadian dollar would. That has changed. Now the dollar is at par with gold. U.S. se* urities look safer. And the Yankee dollar may soon buy more than the Canadian one. The reason the Canadian dollar was once worth G cents more than he American is this: Although Canada was buying more goods from the United States than it vas selling, Americans were investing so many dollars in Canada they were far offsetting this rade loss. When Americans invested in Canada and when Canadians loatcd loans or sold securities , the American dollars had o be turned into Canadian ones 0 go to work there. This excess if demand for Canadian dollars over the demand for American Jollar caused the Canadian cur- •ency to go to a premium. But the Canadian government vants to push up its exports and ower its imports. Many Canadians also frown on Americans owning so much of Canada's re- .ources and industry. So Canada >roposes to force its money to vhat it calls substantial discount —meaning Canadians will have to put up some extra cents to buy 1 Yankee dollar. To do this the Canadian gov- srnment will buy up U.S. dol- ars, making the demand for hem greater than the demand for he Canadian variety. The Canadian government, like he American, is planning to op- srate at a deficit for a time, hop- ng thereby to stimulate the economy. Deficit financing tends to ower the value of _ the currency h terms'of "ether "lands 'like West "armany, where the government s building up its reserves. Both American and Canadian lollars could lose status, depending on the extent of the deficit and its relation to the total budgets and to the economy as a whole. Bell Wants $7,320 Month for TV Line LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Southwestern Bell Telephone' Co., told the Arkansas Public Service Commission Monday it would cost $258,000 to install equipment for a pay television experiment in Little Rock. . Bell said it would have "to charge Midwest Video Corp., $7,320 a month — with Midwest posting some kind of bond for 10 years—for its services. The bond is required, Bell General Manager Warren E. Bray, testified at a five-hour hearing, to insure the telephone company against loss if pay television is a failure. Southwestern Bell filed a proposed rate schedule for pay TV services with the PSC Monday. A Bell spokesman said it was thf first pay television tariff to be filed with a state agency anywhere in the nation. Theater owners opposing Midwest's pay television plan contend the Arkansas commission has no jurisdiction in the case since courts have held that television is by its nature interstate commerce. Can't Jail o TB Suspect LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The attorney general's office ruled Monday that Arkansas' new tuberculosis control law allows apprehension of a persons to determine if he has the disease, but it does not permit a health • officer to place him in jail. The health officer can seek a court order to have the patient committed to hospital. Beorden Disposal Plant Approved BEARDEN, Ark.
