In the past few years, said the
A. A. A. statement, Canada has
opened a great new territory to
motorists and the summer tourist
traffic is swinging into the north
country at a pace seldom equalled
in any human migration. This is
the motor travel that the western

trying to catch and still further
develop for the wonderful scenic
displays of Northern California,

"The modern motorist is often
an investor and he . ' brings a
stream of gold into and through
our territory. Our forthcoming

develop ways. and means for In
creasing he traffic. Toward this
end there will lie made available
for the conference an enormous
