Indian Days at Banff
The days of the o/cfen, golden west live again each
July at Banff, Alberta, when Stoney Indians gather
to hold their traditional tribal sports.
The Stoneys, who today live in dignity on the
reservation at Morley, 41 miles east of the baronial
Banff Springs Hotel, set up their teepees and
corral their sturdy ponies in the broad Bow Valley
for four days each July. Visitors thrill to tests of
skill that outshine any commercial rodeo and the
parades of dignified chiefs and braves bedecked
in traditional costumes. Proof that ancient tribal
arts and skills have not been forgotten are shown
by rare bead and quill work fashioned during
long winter evenings, to decorate moccasins,
trousers, jackets and war bonnets.
The Stoney tribe were great hunters who played
a great part in the advance of civilization by
helping to feed the army of builders of the
Canadian Pacific Railway seven decades ago when >^^
they knew every game run in the "Shining \^J
Mountains" that today form Canada's mountain
playground, Banff National Park.

AIOA Montreal, from Mount Royal
Montreal, one of the oldest cities in the New World,
largest city in Canada, largest inland seaport
in the world, holds a dual attraction — it is a
mecca for both tourist and business traffic.
Manufacturing and transport centre, key to the
year-round holiday areas of the French-speaking
Province of Quebec, the 300-year-old city speaks
two languages with Gallic gaiety and attracts
visitors by its successful marriage of two
cultures, two tongues, two civilizations.
From Mount Royal, vantage point of our photographer,
the panorama of Montreal spreads seven miles along
the North bank of the River St. Lawrence — an
equal distance north-westward. The city's 50 square
mile area encloses narrow streets, wide boulevards,
typical squares, fine parks, historic buildings of three
centuries ago, modern structures of tomorrow.
Specialty shops, department stores, restaurants
famous for French-Canadian cuisine, night-clubs,
smart hotels cater to visitors. Typical Quebec
handicrafts, exclusive imports, fine jewellery
and china attract shoppers.

Canadian
IS THE WORLD '■£^J:y'M£:%0!- The Mounted11
The scarlet coat of "The Mounted" has been the symbol of
law, order and justice to Canadians since 1873, twelve years
before Canada's first transcontinental railway, the Canadian
Pacific, was built. In the western plains, during the 1898
gold rush to the Yukon, and across the Dominion, the history
of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has been one of
tenacity, endurance and high courage. Organized as the
North-West Mounted Police, armed with horse, lance and
carbine to handle Indian unrest and protect settlers in the
North-West Territories, the Force maintained order during
the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway across the
Prairies. In 1904 the name of the Force became the Royal
North-West Mounted Police.
In 1918 it was entrusted with the enforcement of Dominion
legislation for Western Canada, In 1920 this jurisdiction was
extended to the whole of Canada, and the name was
changed to Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Headquarters
was transferred to Ottawa from Regina which is still the
Dominion Training Centre. The Royal Canadian Mounted
Police today enforces the laws against smuggling by land,
sea and air, is responsible for the suppression of traffic in
narcotic drugs and exercises supervision over aliens. Use is
made of every known scientific aid to police protection in its
well-equipped laboratories.
Just as "The Mounted" played an heroic part in the carving
out of a new democracy on the western frontier so, today,
it plays a part in the preservation of that democracy at home.
