"For Things Finer"
lavished high praise on the Texas
Tourist Development Agency and
the Texas Highway Department
for their separate but cooperative
programs for stimulating greater
travel to and within the state.
Faking DATO's top literature
award was the Highway Depart-
ment's new 208-page travel book,
TKXAS - LAND OF CONTRAST.
In addition, the per.sonneI
and service of the dei>artment's
II tourist bureaus were lauded.
Phe Texas Tourist Develop-
ment Agency was accorded
DATO's highest advertising
award for its "brilliantly con-
ceived campaign comprising con-
sumer image advertising based
on the flexible theme, 'Texas is
- - - -.' " plus development
of package tours, U.S. and for-
eign travel writer tours, and
leadership in establishing the
new multi-state Conquistadores
The twin award swore achieved
in the highest category of com-
petition among other states, fed-
eral, and territorial govern-
ments. The committee of travel
experts selecting Texas for the
1971 awards was headed by
Stephen K. Kelly, president of
the national Magazine I'ublishers
Association, and included F. J.
MilIIins, senior vice president of
American Airlines, and Robert
J. Sullivan, general manager of
the San Francisco Convention
and Visitors Bureau.
Both the Highway Department
and the Tourist Development
Agency captured similar national
awards in 19(58 for Texas travel
promotion activities. Frank

said, "The fact that the State
of Texas has been recognized
twice in four years for its tour-
ist development efforts is signi-
ficant, and highly gratifying. As
far as we know," he said, "this
is the first time that a state
lias been repeatedly honored by
the national travel industry."
Pom II. Taylor, director of the
Highway Department's Travel H
Information Division, remarked
that DATO represents the real
t ra ve I profe ssl onal s of the nation.
"And more important than win-
ning," he said, "is the hope
that these awards signify we're
on the right track in the excit-
ing business of promoting the
Texas visitor industry."
Currently, Texas attracts
more than 21 million visitors
from ut of state each year.
Their annual spending reaches
$1.5 billion. In a series of
enticing color ads in national
publications, the Tourist Devel-
opment Agency seeks to create
a travel image for Texas, and
expand the tourist flow. Welcom-
ing those who arrive, Highway
Department tourist bureaus at-
tempt to extend the average stay
by providing vacation informa-
tion and a wealth of colorful
The cooperative programs of
the two agencies have nearly
doubled the Texas tourist in-
dustry during the past eight
years. Both ilildebrand and
Taylor said that future prospects
are just as bright, but will re-
quire continued aggressive pro-
motion to meet the challenges
of competition from other states

FOOTBALL AND FOOD are equally part of the seasonal cele
bration*. A picnic with game-time savvy features Bread Howl
salad (foreground), hrispy < rackers spread with cheese, Banana
Chilton Cup Cakes. Jugs ol steamy collee and tea are "musts."
Football entertaining is auicly one of the easiest kinds of lull
party you can plan if y<<ur approach to the game includes a
sensible, no-work outdoor eating arrangement. Gather your Jans
together at the stadium a back in your own backyard, before
game-time on TV. For food, mix old favorites with good new
ideas', some of the best stall with NFL Training Table Foods.
The luct that they're the foods served at official training tables
makes them "football's own" just the thing for your lootball
party. Newest idea: a Bread Howl salad. Slice the top off a round
loaf of bread and scoop out the bottom. Butter the resulting
"bowl", line it with lettuce and till with a hearty, meaty salad.
To serve, slice wedges from the liowl, salad and ail, and lop with
a slice cut from the top of the bread. Result: a football "hero".
And whatever you do, don't forget dessert: armchair quarter-
backs get as hungry as the playing kind. For a cliange-of-taste
sweet, try Banana Chiffon Cup Cakes.
