end D. S. Libbey of Glacier Nation
al Park, reports, “No passport is re
quired for any United States citi
zen who wishes to visit either the
Canadian or the American section
of the Waterton-Glau’er Interna
tional Peace Park.”
‘ According to information received
at Park Headquarters, he explained,
the new passport regulations placed
in effect by the State Department
affect only persons coming from
Canada. into the United States.
Thus not only the Canadian section
of the Waterton—Glacier Interna-
mona] Peace Park (Waterton Lakes
National Park, Alberta,) but all of
Canada’s national parks and other
points of interest are open to Am
ericans without passports.
r Canadians visiting Glacier Na

passports when they cross the inter

tion that they may cruise acmss
Waterton Lake to Goathaunt Camp
in the launch “International,” pro
yided that they do not leave the boat
