They are no more national than is good music, classical literature, beautiful pictures. They belong to the world. We people of Canada feel that the beauty spots within the Umted States that have been designated as national parks belong to us as they belong te you. They are but placed within the keeping of the people of the States. We feel and we hope that the people of the United States feel, that the beauty spots of Canada that have been designated as national parks are as much your parks as they are our parks, that they are merely placed within Our keeping for the use of all. Beauty is inter- national, regardless of the form in which it is expressed, and national parks are but the natural beauty spots of the world pre- served for the people of the world.---J. B. Harkin, Commiioner, Canadian National Parka Branch, Department of Interior, Canada. By JOHN DICKINSOI SHERMAN _ OMPLFTION of the Banff-Winder- mere motor high_way across the cen- tral Canadian Rockies sharply em-  phasizes the fact that the national parks movement is Just bout the ff livest non-political issue of the times )f(J]] In Canada as well as In the United J'-<D States. An increasingly interna. t.,,ff, tional aspect is Its latest develop- (J ment. On both sides of the most remarkable frontier In the world It Is agreed that national parks are national only In name; that natural scenic beauty is interna- tional; that there are no barriers between parka save those placed by nature; that larger develop- ment of roads should give the people of tim North American continent easy access to the most rplendid recreation region of the globe. It is a credible prediction that the near future will see a system of national parks from Mount McKinley in Alaska to Grand Canyon In Arizona under a working international agreement that will make It "a unique continental expoiltlon of ltlestlrnable value to science and to the pOpular education of future generations," as welt as a vast scenic playground for the people. The immediate effect of the opening of the 104. mile, two-way Banff-Windermere highway, oaking passage by automobile possible through the cen- tral Canadian Rockies, Is that it completes a 500. ralle circuit of Rocky Mountains, Yoho, Kootenay ani Waterton Lakes National parks in Canada and connects this circuit with the National Park- to-Park highway In the United States-- gigantic nlotor way that circles 6,000 miles through nine scenic western states and touches Mount Rainier, Crater Lake, Lassen Volcanic, Yosemite, General Grant, Sequoia, Grand Canyon, Zion, Mesa Verde. Rocky Momtain, Yellowstone and (]lacier National parks. Tle Canadians call the highway from Banff to Lake Windermere and on to the internatltnal lie at Kingsgate the Banff-Callfornia Bee-Line hlgh- way because It keeps right on across a corner of Idaho to Spokane and Portland and thence soath to San Francisco and Los Angeles, a dlstaece of 1,931 miles. They call the other half og he "Grand Circle tour" the Banff-Grand Canyon road ; this crosses tile international line at Peskaa, Mont., just to the east of Waterton Lakes and Glacier National parks. Tile formal op'ning of the Bar, if-Windermere highway this snramer at the point where It crosses the Kootenay fiver was an international affair of considerable pvmp and* ceremony. Old Glory xvls much in evidence. The band played the national airs. A notable as.,em- blage was in attendance. Dr. King, Dominion minister of-public works, welcomed the gaests, J. Ross Eakin, superintendent of Glacier Nail.hal park, was the official representative of Secretary Hubert Wor of the United States Department of tile i-*ar| .... F" The speech-making emphasized the international Importance of the occasion. Then the lieutenant governors of Alberta and Brl!ish Columbia, Dr. R. G. Brett and Walter C. Nich,I, cut the r. white and blue rlbbou across the road and automobiles started east and west amid cheers, Several motor highway projects on either sie of the International ine are important in thls connectton. One is a nearly-completed road thfit will connect Buffalo park at Wainwright, Alberta, by way of Edmonton with Jasper, largest and farthest north of the Canadian national parks. It Is being built on 300 miles of abandoned roadbed of the Canadian Northern, from which the gov- ermnent tore the rails In the World war to send to France. Another road Is nearing completion from Lake Louise to Field in Rocky Mountains. This runs on an old roadbed of the Canadian Pacific across the Continental Divide. In time It will be carried through to Golden on the Columbia river. A proposed Canadian scenic highway through the heart of the Central Canadian Rockies runs directly from Banff to Jasper park, 125 miles In an air line. connecting at the base of Mount Robson at the headwaters of the Fraser with the Buffalo-Jasper road Just mentioned. Three road projects in and about Glacier in the United States have lternational interest. The National Park service has begun construction on the Transmountain read across the Continental Divide from St. MaryM lake to Lake McDonai0. Its completion will bridge the last gap In the National Park-to-Park highway by uniting the east entrance (Glacier Park) and the wet entrance (Briton) of Glacier. It also supplements the All-Canadian circle by a United States- Canadian circle much smaller than the Grand Circle tour. The second is the road being built by Montana to pllel the Great Norther along the southern boundary of Glacier, closing the prent gap between through east and west hlgh- way at this point. The third project is the improvement by the United Stats government of the Babb Interna- tional Boundary road along the east side of Glacier. In accordance with a decision ny the co::ptroller general that the entire cost of a state aid project through an Indian reservation may be paid from the funds apportioned to the mates under the federal highway act the Mon- tana state highway commission has submitted as a federal aid project the improvement of this rd NO INTERNATIONAL LINE The tremendous and increasing tourirt travel of the last few years is Iroof of the appeal to the people of the North American .-:.ntinent of their national parks. The United States and Canada stand together in ; king more contented peoples by getting te public into the great outdoor scenic e;::qbits with which both countries are su.remely blessed. We live in peace and fric:dship on the most remarkable political fro:;tier in all the world. But in scenic bea.ty here ia no international boundary line at all o barriers save those plated by nature. The extension of our National Park-to-Park highway across the herder by the opening of svch splendid conne.ting links as\\;the Banff-Windermere hithway will be followed, I since e:y hope, by the larger development of national park tea<is in both countries until the two peoples are given easy acces to the finest scenic attraCtions of the globe--Stephen T, Mather, Director National Park Service, Department of Interior, United States. the importance of an '-unique tin" and requesting "the people of the United States and the parliament of the Dominion of { such amendments of existing meat of such new laws as in the international parks servation alike."
