!T' ALLEDITIOMS Soviets reorganise failing tourist unit ;Lo* Angeles Times tiervkt MOSCOW —- MafMf«ffl*nt of the official Soviet tourist agency, Intourist, Has been reorganized after high • level criticism of its failures. ^Western sources called the rtbrganization a "purge" which struck hardest at the Am e r i c a ft sections of the agency. Intourist is a major source of hard currency the Soviet economy is desperately trying to earn. Corning at the beginning of the peak summer travel sea* son, the reorganization followed a frank appraisal of the agency's shortcomings in Pravda, the official Communist party newspaper, by S. Nikitin, chief of tourism for the Council of Ministers. His attack was directed at the failure of/the state company to build hotels to accommodate foreign visitors, and to train personnel to operate them. "Every tourist. season we are forced to refuse a great number of foreigners Wishing to visit our country only because we are short of hotels." Nikitin said. The shortgage Is worst in the cities which receive the most visitors — Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev, Sochi, Yalta, Tashkent, Bukhara, Irkutsk and Khabarovsk, Nikitin cited the example of Yalta — one of the loveliest resort areas on the Black Sea, where an Intourist hotel has been under construction since 1965. The rust - coated steel skeleton of the building stands conspicuously overlooking a beach reserved for foreigners. "It is still difficult to say when the building will be fin- set of twins born in 2 different autos KRUM, Tex. (AP) - Mrs. Larry vyilliams was being taken to'a hospital. The family car ran out of gas in Lindsay, Tex. 'Just before Mrs. Williams w,as picked up by Carol Bez- rier, the first baby put in an appearance. -Miss Bezner's car was the birthplace of the" second baby when the car was almost in sight of the hospital in Muenster, Tex. Air Force sergeants have a lot in common 'MINOT, N. D. (APJ -M. Sgt. Kenneth Cook is leaving Minot Air Force Base for duty at Elmendprf AFB in Alaska. His replacement is M. Sgt. Kenneth Cook from Alaska, who is no relation. ;Both men have wives named Joanne and each is the father of three sons and a daughter. And both have sons named Kenneth and Michael. ished by th« Ministry of Industrial Building," Nik 1 tin said. "A small hotel in Buk- haha has been under construction by the ministry more than seven years." Nikitin said tourist business brings, in "several hundred million ruble! hv foreign currency annually:,*' The official also said new tourist hotels will pay for themselves within four years by earning hard currency. All Soviet agencies dealing with foreigners are under pressure to increase their income of hard currency to relieve high costs of importing goods from the forest. While the ruble, not convertible to hard currency or gold, cannot be used outside the country, the,government .this month raised its value to a. new high, $1.38. In addition to setting artificially high exchange rates to earn dollars and other hard currency, Intourist charges foreigners more than Soviet citizens for services. A hotel room, for instance, costs a foreigner twice what a Russian pays. While Intourist has trained able guides, "We are still short of mass profession workers such as cooks, bar- meil, maitre d'hotels, maids and waiters," Nikitin said. "We Shall need additionally about 10,000 workers of that profile by the end of this five • year plan (1975). That time Will come soon when we shall need even more of them. . , We must start speaking now of the creation of professional schools for graduating specialists in the sphere of hospitality." In the last year, Intourist has intensified the training of guides. Visitors now hear lectures by members of the Zna- niye (knowledge) Society, a major distributor of political propaganda.
