Prior to Mr. King's appoint- J ment. a manager was hired for the summer season only, most of the exhibit collecting and cataloguing being done by citi- zens who felt the museum was important. Mr. King was high in his praise for people who hare given so much to the building of the museum. He credited the authenticity of the museum to their wise choices of artifacts. !i is the only museum to house ardfacts in the locale where they were used. The po- lice museum shows exhibits from the very beginning to the present. The collecting policy from tie beginning has beWi selective. "The hardest part of this job is having to say 'no thani you' when we are offered some art- icles." The ruling made by the di- rectors of the association has b e e n to accept anything per- taining to the police, anything valuable in the way of artifacts of the Blood and Peigan re- serves, and pioneer effects 14) to 1911. "Because this rule has been followed throughout the years, we have a unique museum."

They were also fortunate in receiv- ing Dr. Haultain's Winchester 76. "When this was offered, we wanted it. It's the Erst issue to the MVMP and it's authentic." .Another change was the chap- el. Actual church services are held in this little tog building that houses church furnishings from different denominations. Music is played during the day and tourists often meditate in ihe room. Another display that attracts attention is the tableau show- ing Col James Macleod and 1 Chief Crowfoot It was added in 15.70 to the RCMP museum, along with a diorama of the barracks of 1SS3.

We need more room i in the compound." To obtain more space, work is to begin on a new entrance, This wifi take the registering out of the Kanouse House that j holds pioneer effects. 1 The vehicle shed along the nonh wall rill be moved to the east lawn and ihe teepees moved. The additional space will be used to tell the story the building oi the community. Wrat do you mean by a liv- ing museum? "Mu seisins shouldn't be stogey or liie cem- eteries. They should be fun and living." The firsi stage of this living museum was the introduction of the Mounted Patrol. Eight boys dressed in the uniform of the North West Mounted Police of 1S73. mounted on m a t c h eu horses, added color and rom- ance ar.d brought history alive during the summer of 1972. They will continue to ride through the streets of this his- toric town and act as guidw in- side tho fort in future seasons. Mr. King hopes to continue adding life. He suggests a na- tive girl in a teepee actually do- ing bead work which slie could sell !o tourists. He hopes to have a student from the Olds College's farrier school working in the black- smith shop. "Most kids today don't know what a blacksmith is.
