Hunted for dog food until 1971 — when
schoolchildren rationed Congress to
stop the practice — wild horses and
burros are legally protected as “living
symbols of the historic and pioneer
spirit of the West.”
But the U.S. Bureau of Land
Management argues that there are too
many animals for the grazing land
available and that the rangeland in the
West is deteriorating. The Bl^d says
there are 50,000 wild horses and 17,000
burros, figures disputed by groups such
as the Humane Society of the United
States, which is suing BLM.
The Reagan administration says the
cost of managing the wild horses and
burro program is too high — $6.8
million has been requested for one
year. The administration says 44,000
animals must be removed—6,000 in the
next year — and destroyed if
Since May 1976, it has been possible to

for each burro and $200 for each horse.

WASHINGTON (NEA)—And all the
depressing reports about a slumping
economy, spiraling inflation and
plunging productivity, here’s some
good news about an attractice industry
that’s growing at a dazzling rate.
It’s travel and tourism, whose con-
tribution to this country's economy is
rapidly approaching $150 billion an-
nually — including more than $12 billion
spent last year by citizens of other
nations visiting the United States.
The U.S. Travel Service, an agency of
the Commerce Department, will soon
releast its annual report, showing that
in 1980—for the first time in modem
history—the number of foreigners (22.5
million) touring this country exceeded
the number of Americans (22.4 million)
Another unprecedented 1980
development: Visitors coming to the
United States from both neighboring
nations, Canda and Mexico, last year
outnumbered Americans traveling to
“Foreign tourist spending is, in ef-
fect, ‘fresh money’ which flows into the
U.S. economy and has much the same
impact as new capital investment,” the
Travel Service notes.
“It turns over and over as it makes its
way through the economy, generating
successive rounds of demands and
creating income not only for the travel
industry but for industries which supply
the travel industry,” the report adds.
The long-term growth rate for in-
ternational travel to the United States
has been phenomenal: During the past
two decades, arrivals have increased
fourfold (from 5.6 million in 1960 to 22.5
million in 1980) while revenues have
soared from $1 billion to $12 billion
during the same period.
Domestic travel slumped somwhat
last year — from almost 514 million
trips in 1979 to 447 million trips in 1980—
according to the U.S. Travel Data
Center, a Washington-based non-profit
organization that conducts research for
the travel and tourism industry.
The Travel Data Center notes that the
decline was relatively modest,
however, “in view of the devastating
economic decline during the first half of
1980 and the rapid escalation in gasoline
prices and air fares.”
Despite that slippage, travel and
tourism leads all other industries as a
source of jobs in 23 states. Nationally,
4.4 million people hold travel-related
But the best is yet to come, according
to industry experts such as Robert C.
Hazard Jr., president of Quality Inns
International, one of the country’s most
aggressive and progressive loding
“The travel industry will grow more
rapidly during the next 10 years than
during any previous decade of its
already dizzy growth cycle,” says
Hazard. “Business travel will continue
to grow more rapidly than leisure
travel. Travel from overseas will
continue to increase at dramatic
To back up those optimistic
predictions, Quality Inns’ chief
executive officer offers an impressive
list of contributing factors:
—Improved technology and com-
puterization will take the hassle out of
travel, allowing travel agents to in-
stantly make complete arrangements
for a trip anywhere in the world.
—World population, disposable in-
come and vacation time all arc growing
at rapid rates.
-Travel now is considered to be an
integral part of many people’s
lifestyle—and that includes middle-
income wage-earners as well ast he
—“The increasing desirability and
affordability of the travel experience is
especailly evident in the ‘baby boom’
generation, whose members now are
becoming part of households that are
prime candidates for travel.”
Travel and tourism already ranks
third, behind only manufacturing and
agriculture, among all major industries

else in the business, cites futurist

According to Kahn, when the 21st

— travel and tourism will be the world’s

The Wagman File
WASHINGTON (NEA)—One of
Ronald Reagan’s first acts as president
was to impose a federal hiring freeze.
Administration officials hoped that the
freeze coupled with normal attrition
would substantially reduce the federal
work force. But it has not.
Figures from the Office of Personnel
Management show that federal em-
ployment actually increased in
January and February but dropped in
March by 6,603, mainly as the result of
reductions in the Census Bureau with
the completion of the 1980 census.
There was another decrease — of
1,872 — in April, the latest month for
which figures are avilable. But for the
third month the Defense Department
showed an increase of more than 5,000
Moreover, the April figures reflected
a new way of counting federal workers.
Defense Department employees and 28,
243 employees “exempt from personnel
ceilings” were listed separately.
There will have to be 89,303 fewer
employees on the federal payroll on
Sept 30 than there were on April 30 if
the administration is to reach its an-
nounced personnel goals. Government
experts say that this will happen only if
very large numbers of workers are
dismissed over the next 90 days.
The Census Bureau has at last
published its final figures for the 1980
But the report contains a rather
significant footnote cautioning that the
totals may change if New York, Detroit
or other cities win lawsuits in which
they are changing that the bureau
undercounted their populations.
Where does this leave federal of-
ficials who have to dispense millions of
federal dollars on the basis of the
census? The government has decided to
go with the current figures. If the
numbers change later, the cities that
got too much will have to repay the
excess while those that got too little will
receive additional money.
Of course, this could lead to another
round of suits.
New Yorkers had better have enjoyed
the recent 24-hour visit of Prince
Charles to their city for a performance
of the British Royal Ballet
Why? Because his police protection
cost them $350,000.
New York Mayor Ed Koch and the
New York Police Department think
that the federal government should
pick up the tab. But the Treasury
Department is saying, "No way.”
“The law is clear,” says a Treasury
official. "The federal government will
reimburse New York for protection
only in the case of a foreign dignitary
coming to address what in the law is
called ‘an official international body,'
which means the United Nations.”
He explains that the federal govern-
ment paid for Pope John Paul ITs
protection in New York because he
addressed the United Nations and
would have paid for the prince’s
protection had he done likewise. But he
did not, so the government is forbidden
by law from paying the bill.
“The people in New York are now
making statements that they are
surprised we are not picking up the
tab,” says the Treasury official. "But
the day they heard that Charles was
coming, they were on the phone asking
if we would pick up the protective bill.
We said no then, so I can’t see how they
are surprised now.”
Interior Secretary James Watt, who
is described in official government
biographies as a Coloradan, is supposed
to represent the New West in the
Reagan Cabinet. But closer
examination reveals that this
sagebrush rebel has spent most of his
adult life not in the Wild West but in the
affluent suburbs of Washington, D.C.
Watt did spend his youth in Wyoming.
But for more than 20 years, he lived in
the Washington area while working for
the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, on
Capitol Hill, as a deputy secretary of
the interior and as a member of the
Federal Power Commission.
