But this reputation Is fading fast as Bhutan's rulers open the gates on the mountain nnsscs to foreigners and to modern civilization both good and had. Some Bhutanese see the leap into the 20th century as a ne- cessity to maintain individuality and independence; others Ihtnk it's unavoidable and have given up fighting the chunge.

As a result, tourists in midtown New York may find their excitement in the streets if a forthcoming experiment proves successful. And it may go further than that -- a successful venture could provide the impetus to perk up other dismal ailroad areas in the United States. The experiment to put some ife in the area "when the office buildings' are closed" may rub off on the four hotels built over the railroad station, predicts Brian Corbell, who is guiding that aspect of it. "It the first event, the Portobello Rood flea market, is sue cesstul, there may other lairs flower shows, antique and clas sic car shows, and even some forms of entertainment in the streets," says Corbell, who described the present weekend at mosphere in the streets from 42nd to 47th Street when office I t r l l l l l l l U I U W I I uildings are closed as "pretl erie." In contrast, the streets r Paris and London arc fu places to be at night and wee! inds, he remr-rked. The fair, a takeoff of the f mous London flea market, leing sponsored by the city 'Jew York.

A number English dealers as well i 4ome authentic bobbies will I on hand to lend atmosphere he five-block .area, and the will be English-style snacks Ish and chips and the like. It all ties into Corbell's a signment as chief executive Realty Hotels, to take respon }ility for redeveloping the to lotels into "economically \ able and enjoyable places."

You can go sightseeing, but on a weekend you might just like to dp something different. In assessing possibilities for refurbishing the hotels, officials are finding that some of their new ideas are really old ones -old drawings have been confirming their, opinions as they plan new restaurants, dancing and drink areas. They are making the usual discoveries in structure -- that a handsome ceiling and skylight has been covered with a false ceiling or hat partitions screen out some architectural embellishments to a total area. At the Biltmore, where millions of people have met under the famous clock, he says, they are refurbishing the main din- so that Its charm most attractive to major effort to give modern Bhutan a facelift in reverse lo restore some of its traditional features. But the temptations of practicality and lower costs seem Loo high. Tin roofs, power lines and noisy car horns echoing In the Himalayan valleys apparently are here to stay. Bhutanesc call their country Druk Yul, land of the mystic dragons of their Tantrlc Bud. dhist religion. They themselves are the Drukpas, the Dragon People. A ibusinessman in downtown Thimphu call his shop the "Druk Store." Some of the younger DrukriaA sit in the Thimpu Swiss Coffee House dressed in jeans higher- priced in Bhutan than in New York City, wearing colored T- shirls imprinted "Love" or with sergeant's stripes. Only within the massive walls of the Tashichho Dzong. seat ol Bhutan's government and Jhe chief lama, is the traditional Kho dress a must. It consists of a rninikimono that ends above the knee and is made of hand- woven cloth embroidered with good luck signs. Violation of the dress rule costs a $65 fine. By GKKGG HEKRINOTON NIGHTIIAWK, Wash. (AP) At this isolated and awesomely beautiful spot on the Canadian border, Warren Hood stands as America's first nhd last defense dgainst tax cheats and smugglers. Hood Is the U.S. Customs Service man here and the only resident at the border crossing. Hood works and lives here, 12 miles west of Orovllle ' in Okanogan County. A visitor's 'irst thought approaching the vehicle inspection station is :hat whoever has the job was .ransferred here as some sort of bureaucratic punishment. But that's not the case with Hood. He says he transferred to Nighlhawk four years ago because he wanted "to gel away from the rat race" and the Sweet Crass, Mont., border crossing. "I f i n d this a very Interesting job," Hood says. "There are no two · days alike because the people are different. I enjoy talking to them. Some people come through here and answer you with a 'yes' and a 'no' and a 'yes.' But the next guy tells you where he's heen, how many birds sing and see an occasional coyote." Hood, 63, is a trim, slightly built Air Force could pass for years younger. fish he's caught and what he thinks of Canada. That, to me, is interesting."

A Canadian customs officer, working out of his in- retiree . who someone 10 ' On a typical summer week (lay, Hood said, 20 to 25 cars will pass through his horder station. A holiday weekend has brought as many as 68 and, ha says, there have been two or three snowy winter days in four years when no one has driven through. The light traffic flow would be oven lighter, Hood says, if everybody knew where they were going, "A good percentage of tha people think they're headed for Oroville" and accidentally get sidetracked through Nighthawk. As ho talked, a family ot ourisls from Louisiana traveling in a motor homo drove up. The driver asked Hood where he had missed the turn to Oroville. Hood said that while he en-, joys talking to the people, the vehicle inspections themselves are overwhelmingly routine. Occasionally, he says, he finds someone wilh m a r i j u a n a but has never found any hard narcotics. NOTHING BUT TIME Two young men dressed in grubby clothes drove up in a station wagon. Hood went spection station across the road, checks cars entering Canada while Hood checks, those entering the United States. At 5 o'clock every day they close ond padlock the gate across the road, forcing traffic to detour back around through Oroville, Wash., and Osoyoos, British Columbia. The Canadian guard drives to his home in Osoyoos like any other commuter at the end of the working day, leaving _ Hood alone on the high prairie in the shadow of nearby mountains. Hood lives just a few feet away In a single-story frame house that he rents from the U.S. government, unfurnished, for $110 a month. NOT FOR EVERYONE "Not everyone would want this job. Nor is this a job (or everyone," Hood says. "A lot of people couldn't stand this isola- through their car more thoroughly than he had the Loui- ·. slana family's vehicle.

The Circuit Breaker Act was jassed to allow persons on fixed ncomes .to obtain' a special slate income tax deduction or refund for'property taxes they had paid during the previous year in support of local government. The Act allows varying refunds based on the annual income of the eligible claimant. Many thousand Arkansas citizens were entitled this year to partial and total refunds for property taxes they paid during 1873. Two retired citizen's groups ONLY $14,000. LUIed by Mrs. Hammers.

"Since India offered her assistance in 1948. she has given generousy and liberally, but today the aid is not adequate in all fields," says Foreigin Minister Dawa Tsering. Aid from the United Nations Development Program, Japan, Singapore, Australia, and private Swiss sources supplements India assistance. Education ranks highest among this year's budget cx- pendilures.

Edgar Rhoads what it takes to make a good business these days and he'll tell you ;hat a company,. like a man, has got to have character. At 90, Rhoads is in a unique position to comment on what it is that makes a^uslness solid. He has spent more than 70 years working at J.E. Rhoads and Sons, a leather and indus^ trial belting firm listed by the Business Founding Date Directory as the oldest company in the country. I've never felt a desire for a get-rich-quick business," says Rhoads, a thin, soft-spoken man who still works each day. "So many of them go bad, or if they don't, they hurt other people. I think character is as important in business as in churches." Edgar Rhoads and his cousin, 65-year-old Richard H-. Rhoads, are the seventh generation of family members to manage the firm, founded in 1702. Like their ancestors, who fled England for the religious freedom offered in: the colony founded by William Penn, t h e Rhoads are Quakers.

He estimates that he person- illy developed 50 to 100 differ- nt glues, including the first waterproof cement, during his 0 years with the firm. He still pends much of his time experimenting wilh materials uited to synthetics. Others in the firm are work. ng on such things as development of a conveyor belt flexibla nough to go around corners. NO DIVERSITY Although the Rhoads havs purchased two smaller belting irms in recent years lo expand :heir operation, they have no ,lans lo diversify from their specialied production of indns- rial belts, tapes and packings or hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. They tried diversification in the 19IMs when they attempted to make flowerpots .from cohesive sawdust. The project ended a costly failure.
