Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE LETHBBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, October 2, 1970 JOINS GHOSTS OF THE PAST - Historic Bellevue Hotel was dismantled board-for-board and nail-for-nail, moved 40 miles, and painstakingly re-assembled on the site of the unique ghost town of Three Valley Gap, near Revelstoke, B.C., on the Trans-Canada Highway. There are more than two dozen authentic old buildings at Three Valley, crammed with memorabilia of a bygone era. Joins B.C. Ghosts Of Pas rrWE Bellevue Hotel, once a major stopping point at the Canadian Pacific Railroad junction of Sicamous, B.C., now stands at a new location - Three Valley Gap - 33 miles to the east of its original site. Looking at this fine old building with its weathered exterior, it's hard to believe that two years ago it was completely dismantled - board by board-each piece carefully numbered and then painstakingly reassembled at its present location. In fact it was put together with such precision that even the original paint marks from the hand-lettered name on the front of the hotel were re-matched. From the time it was built in about 1895 to March 18, 1957, when railway passenger service to the Okana^an was dis- continued, the Bellevue served I will once again glow in soft, as a pleasant stop-over for railway passengers. It was always noted for excellent meals and warm hospitality. Three Valley Gap, 12 miles west of Revelstoke on the Trans-Canada Highway makes an excellent setting for this historic building. Here Gordon Bell, the young owner-manager of tWs unique tourist attraction has' assembled a complete assortment of historic buildings from the surrounding area. In 1967 Gordon bought the hotel complete with furnishings, Unens and dishes. He plans to eventually restore it to a pomt of accommodating overnight guests. At present only the exterior is complete, but each piece cf interior material has been carefully and lovingly stored against the day when it 'TUNSEEKERS TO HAWAir 2-WEEK VACATIONS Direct luxury jet flights from Calgary Complimentary meals and bar service included.

In Three Valley, everything from the tiny trapper's log cabin to the old Presbyterian Church from Donald, B.C. has been either re-assembled, repaired, or rebuilt from old photographs of the original buildings. Gordon and his lovely wife, Ethel, scoured Western Canada for authentic antiques to furnish these buildings and wound up with one of the largest and most fascinating colLections of early Canadiana in existence. Museums and histroic sites are more fun when the visitor can actively participa'te in the past and have the feeling that he is briefly living in a bygone era. To create this mood the Bells have built a nan-ow gauge railroad to transport tourists completely around the seven-acre complex in original mining-ore cars. Tb.e Bell youngsters, George, 15, and his three younger sisters entertain in the Golden Wheel Saloon, a replica of an historic establishment at French Creek - the Big Bend Gold Rush site. This spot was discovered by Walter Moberly in 1865 as the pass through which the overland railway could link a great nation from coast to coast. Three Valley Gap, surrounded by the towering Monashee Range and on the shores of a crystal mountain lake is a living monument to this significant chapter in Canadian liis-tory. Virgin Forest The most extensive virgin forest in the world today is the Amazon Valley forest extending from the Atlantic coast into the foothills of the Andes and from Bolivia through Columbia, Venezuela, and the Guianas. Expo 70 Walls Tumble OSAKA (CP-Reuters) - It's wall-tumbling time at Expo '70, the tremendously successful world's fair which for six months brought record-shattering crowds to this Japanese city. Among the pavilions slated for removal are those in which Canada and three provinces displayed their wares. The British Columbia and Quebec pavilions will live on in Japan, in altered form. Still to be decided is the future use of the 815-acre site. The decision-making duty has been handed by the Japanese cabinet to Finance Minister Takeo Fukuda, who plans to create a council to study suggestions. Among those already made, from a variety of sources: a United Nations university; home of a new United Nations body to fight environmental pollution; a na'tional park; a hospital. E.xpo '70 closed its gates to the public Sept. 13 after smashing attendance marks for officially-sanctioned six-month-long ^ ;:-ld fairs. The total attendance of 64.5 million broke the old record of 50.3 million set by Expo 67 in Montreal. Exhibits from more than 100 of the 115 pavilions, including the 88 built by foreign lands, are being removed for shipment home or for temporary display in other parts of Japan. PRESERVING BUILDINGS The Japanese government has decided to preserve on the site some structures, including the Expo Museum of Fine Arts, the Guest House, the Japanese Garden, the Japan Folkcraft Museum, and the Steel Pavilion. Some of the foreign-built pavilions have already been sold and others are on the block. The Douglas fir logs of the 160-foot-high B.C. Pavilion have been bought by an Osaka lumber d.ealer for use in new houses. Other wood from tWs pavilion has been offered to Mo-riguchi, sister city of New Westminster, B.C. The city, near Osaka, plans to make furniture from it. The blue-and-white Quebec Pavilion has been bought by a Japanese trading house for re-erection as part of a hotel in Sapporo, on Hokkaido, Japan's northern island. The Canadian and Ontario governments both said this week that their pavilions will be demolished, in accordance with then- contract with Expo '70. No Matter Your Elobby, London Has It Paradise For Collectors LONDON - Name it and somebody in London has collected it. Any tourist can have a wonderful time tracking down the specialty that at-tracts him. It is one of the city's great attractions that collectors, or people who just happen to be interested, can see some of the greatest collec-tions of almost anything in the world. For free-or, in some cases, for a few pennies. Stamps, coins and medals are easy. The British Museum has some of the world's best, and for those who want to go buy there is the famous firm of Spink of St. Jame's (they are in the telephone book), coin and medal specialists; and for stamps, the world's largest dealers, Stanley Gibbons, in the Strand (just across the road from the Savoy Hotel). Some find it more fun to shop around smaller dealers, such as the Coin and Stamp Market in St. Martin's Lane. For the adventurous there is the outdoor Cutler Street Mar- ket (coins), in the East End, on Sunday mornings. The people picking over coins are just as interesting as the wares. The range of things to shop for, or see for free, ranges from c h a n d e 1 i e s, through stuffed animals, armor, caddy spoons, daggers, decanter la-bels, model ships, wine labels, woodcuts, and to backtrack down the alphabet, printed ephemera like matchbox labels, cigarette cards, Valentines, old posters and playbills, and the like. There are also societies de-voted to the collection and preservation, of almost eveiy-thing from old windmills, trains, shi{>s, organs, pianos, railway relics, steam engines, and dozens of other vanishing items. A browse through the telephone book under the name of one's special interest (sometimes preceded by the words, British) will help you get in touch with the secretaries of these groups. Trail Changes In Parks Face Snowmobilers If at first you don't succeed in finding what you want in the phone book, try another alphabetic heading. You will turn up such delights as the Historic Organs Preservations Society (they hold meetings) the Association of Railway Preservation Societies (they will tell you about all the others); Society for Theatre Research; the Oriental Ceramic Society; the College , of Arms (heraldry, coats of arms, and the like); the Arms and Ar. mor Society; and the International Society of Military Collectors, To see collections of almost anything under one roof, the British Museum is the quick answer. Other major collections can be found in the Natural History Museum, the Geological Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the London Museum. All for free and within easy reach by bus or subway.

Historically, October was the month of the Hawaiian makahiki when chiefs of ancient Hawaii accepted taxes from the people in the name of the gc^ Lono. After the taxes were paid everyone began a year-end festival of aloha and mahalo to Lono for the bountiful gifts which they had received from the land. Because of this, October was chosen as the month for the modern festival. CALGARY - Changes in the areas available to snowmobilers in National Parks this year were annoimced here by R. P. Mails, Acting Director, Western Region. Among the reasons given for the changes ai-e: Warden Patrol capability must he adequate to efficiently cheek compliance with regulations by increasing numbers of snowmobile users; Abuses recorded last year by a number of snowmobilers who declined to abide by regulations ; As a result, the number of trails available in Rocky Moim-tain National Parks has been somewhat reduced and regulations on the use of trails wall be strictly enforced. The requirement for each operator to obtain a general permit before being permitted to use snowmobile trails in National Parks will continue to apply during the forthcoming winter as it did last year. However, separate general permits will have to be applied for in each National Park. "In" and "out" registration procedures in some areas have been implemented with the twofold purpose of protecting the snowmobilers and the environment aUke and - as was the case last year - the superintendent of any National Park will, if he deems necessary, close any given trail, without prior warning, in order to protect the vegetation, especially when insufficient snow is likely to have adverse effects on plant life. "In" and "out" registration at Waterton Lakes National Park is required for the only two approved trails: 1. Chief Mountain Highway from the junction of Highway 5 to the U.S. border, including two off-shoots to the eastern park boundary. 2. Junction of the Akamina Highway and the Townsite Access Road, including a turn-off to the Akamina Pass, also the Akamina Highway - Cran-dell Lake - Red Rock Canyon Road to Red Rock (Janyon and via the Fire Road ot Castle Divide on the park boundary.
