MAY MAKE TREATY PRIQVJDINA
FOR 'ITERDSATNALA
WOULD BE IN MINNESOTA
Proposition Is Made To Join Superior
National Forest And Quetico
"Provincial Park
Plans for a treaty between the
United States and Canada to make an
international recreation area play-
ground, and wilderness pioneer
monument of the Quetico provincia'l
park, Ontario, and the Superior na-
tional forest, Minnesota, were con-
sidered recently at a meeting held in
Duluth, Minn., which was attended
by Canadian and United States offic-
ials.
Plans for this move have been mun-
der way for more than two years, and
were brought to a head by the pro-
jected damming of boundary water-
ways by private power interests. The
Izaak Walton league is backing the
project. The aims of that organiza-
tion were outlined in a letter from
Gordon, conservation director of the
league, to S'ecretary Jardine of the
agricultural department.
To Set Aside Watershed
They plan to set aside the entire
Rainy lake watershed as an area to
Le given special treatment for a re-
creational region; to prohibit luiber-
ing operations within a certain dis-
tance of all waterways in the region;
to reforest and reconstruct the wild-
erness where necessary; to draw up
a treaty between the United State
and Canada in order that the admin-
istration of both American and Cana-
dian holdings may go forward under1
a special joint commission which will
secure uniformity and proper coo-E
dination.1
The area in question is in the cen-
ter of the North American continent,
and Izaak Walton officials urge that
it should be preserved as a unit be-l
cause of its unmatched opportunities
for wilderness recreation and because
of its location. The Superior forestI
was established in 1904 by President
Roosevelt, following the setting aside1
of the Quetico provincial park, as
part of an unofficial agreement be-
tween the two countries. At that
time the purpose was t eventually1
make an international park of the
area.
Haas Intrcate Water System
The international regio'known as
the Rainy lake watershed is of the
true north woods type. Its outstand-v
ing characteristic is its intricate wat-t
ershed system. It is a labyrinth off
lakes, rivers, and connecting water-1
ways, and all transportation in the
interior is by canoe. It has been esti-
mated that expert canoeists could1
travel 3 years over these canoe trailst
without duplicating their routes. Allt
government administration is carried c
on by canoe.

tive toward her proposal of general
disarmament. Russia need have noth-
ing to fear, however, in the opinion
of Mr. Eddy, since in her country anj
army could retreat three times the
distance from New York to San Fran-
cisco, leading the pursuing forces so
far fromn their base that their fate
would be the same as Napoleon's.
"Even during the ebb tide of her
fortunes, when Russia was at its low-
est point and the outlook was most
dismal, no nation could have success-
fully, conquered her," Mr. Eddy said,
"anymore than any nation could ever
successfuly conquer the United States
I or Canada. The countries are too vast
and even to police them would require
a prohibitive number of men."
Mr. Eddy, who has recently return-
"'~' ed from Russia, states that production

ture, has never been higher, and that
