The signs mil be among the .first public declarations that this is the centennial year of the para-military outfit that trekked across the West in the 1800's to establish law and or- der and grew into a force that was glamorized by legend and Hollywood and became one of the most respected police forces of the Western world. QUEEN PLANS VISIT Most of the major events ot the centennial will come later in the year, highlighted by the Queen's visit to the West in June. Final touches are being given to a centennial celebration that will see displays and perform- ances by RCMP horsemen and musicians across the country.

Mr. Ludwig also said thai the reason for his question was to determine if any members of tho legislature possessed land on which road allowances had been closed "legally or other- wise." Mr. Ccpithprne said Mr. Lud- wig alleged in a recent speech that he had used his position as highways minister for per- sonal benefit and that wasn't true. APOLOGY SOUGHT Over shouts of "shame" from the government benches, Mr. Ludwig denied he had said that.
