LESLIE ROBERTS

AT 9.30 o’clock on the morning of May 16. twelve royal blue cars, banded with silver and gold, will glide sinuously westward from Quebec’s Palais Station behind a streamlined locomotive. Sliding over yard switches, a Royal train will head toward Three Rivers. Montreal and the West, not to reach the environs of the Ancient Capital again for almost a month, and then only to slip quietly past on the south bank of the Saint Lawrence, Halifax bound.

With the ramparts of Quebec fading into the distance behind, the Royal Tour will be en route at last, after months of preparation, complete with all the marching and countermarching, negotiation and discussion, without which no expedition of such importance and scope can get under way.

Aboard the Royal train— which, according to designated plan, will carry no customary numerical designation in dispatchers' orders, but will be merely “Royal train” to every active railwayman in the country —will be Canada's Sovereign and his Queen, and Rt. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King. Prime Minister of Canada, as Minister in Attendance. Lady Nunburnholme and Lady Katharine Seymour will accompany Her Majesty as Ladies-inWaiting; the Earl of Eldon will travel as Lord-in-Waiting to the King. The Earl of Airlie will act as Her Majesty’s D»rd Chamberlain. A. F. Lascelles. C.B., C.M.G., M.V.O., M.C., (veteran transcontinental traveller with the present Duke of Windsor) comes from England as Acting Ihivate Secretary to His Majesty. Other members of the Royal Party will be G. F. Steward as Chief Press Liaison Officer. Surgeon Captain H. White. C.V.O.. R.N.. as Medical Officer. Captain M. Adeane. Assistant Private Secretary, and Lieutenant-Colonel the Hon. P. W. Legh, C.B.. C.M.G., C.I.E.. M.V.O.. and Commander E.M.C. Abel-Smith. R.N., as Equerries to the King.

Twenty domestic servants (ladies' maids. His Majesty’s valet and other personal attendants of the Royal couple and their escort) will complete the Royal household. A Mr. Watts, from Buckingham Palace, will be Sergeant Footman and. presumably. O. C. Servants.

In addition to the Prime Minister. Canada will be represented on this most luxurious of all trains ever to span the Dominion, by PL H. Coleman, K.C., LL.D., Undersecretary of State and Chairman of the Interdepartmental Committee charged with arrangements for the visit; Gustave Lanctôt, K.C., D.Litt., Dominion Archivist, who has been named Historian of the Royal Tour; Brigadier S. T. Wood, Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, in charge of all control and other precautions for safeguarding Their Majesties; MajorGeneral H. H. Matthews, Adjutant-General; A. D. P. Heeney. the Prime Minister's princij»! secretary; Lieutenant-Colonel E. D. Mackenzie. D.S.O., Comptroller of the Governor-General’s Household; H. L. Keenleyside, Ph D., Secretary of the Interdejiartmental Committee; and Brigadier-General E. de B. Panet. described as member of the secretariat. Members of the Dominion Cabinet will also travel on the Royal train from time to time, through the sections of the country in which they reside, or which they represent in the Government.

Blue, Silver and Gold, the Color Scheme

WHAT may be called the official description of the Royal train's make-up. as related to this observer by Doctor Coleman, chairman of the Committee of Arrangement. clothes it in all the romantic splendor peculiar, say. to the overnight Toronto-Montreal Otrain. There will be, says the doctor, simply a couple of baggage cars, a standard sleeper, two chambrette cars, two compartment cars, a diner, two private cars to earn’ the Canadian representatives and members of the Household, and two cars for Their Majesties. All very simple, it sounds.

But a brief look behind the scenes reveals something else again, as. forsooth, it should. In its externals, no more beautiful train has taken to the rails in the history of transport. Throughout its gleaming, sinuous length the royal blue motif is preserved, from streamlined enginenose to rear coupling joint There will he silver panels between the windows, with a horizontal gold stripe above

and below. The Royal coat of arms will appear on cars occupied by Their Majesties; the Royal cipher on other cars.

Every locomotive which hauls the train over a route which runs from Quebec to the Pacific and east again to the Maritimes, with a four-day side journey into the Eastern United States, will be painted and striped to match the cars which follow it. including engines used on our neighbors' lines. Metalwork will gleam as never before. What is involved in hauling equipment will be understood by realizing that each major railroad concerned, the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific, will call thirty complete train crews for duty during the tour.

Solid comfort has been the objective in the selection of interior furnishings, with just a soupçon of the sumptuous in the cars prepared for Their Majesties’ personal use. Their cars are those belonging to the Governor-General. They have been refurbished throughout, newly curtained and newly carpeted. New drapes have been hung. Matched walnut woodwork has been inlaid. Everything will be spick as railway shops can make it. and span as any housewife imysts on having her home when people are expected to dinner. One car will be a dicing room, the other a livingquarters car. with sleeping quarters in each and a private study for His Majesty in the “living car.”

But there has been no business of tearing all the insides out of the gubernatorial rolling stock, leaving only a painted shell in which to create a palace in miniature. His Majesty’s representatives let it be known in the beginning that, in the Monarch's view, what was good enough for Lord Tweedsmuir would be quite in order for him. and such was the tone of the order which Ottawa passed down (with reservations) to the railways, in giving orders for preparation of the train. Solid comfort is the essential in creating living quarters in a cramped space which is constantly on the move. Anyone accustomed to travel will readily understand the prerequisite demand for comfort when it is noted that of thirty-one nights to be spent on the North

American continent, nineteen will be passed by Their Majesties aboard the train, in many cases while on the move.

“Nights out” will be, first, at the Citadel in Quebec, where the King and Queen will sleep their first night ön Canadian soil. Three nights will be spent at Government House, Ottawa. Then, after six consecutive nights aboard, those of May 26 and 27 will be spent in the Banff Springs Hotel, which will be completely reserved for passengers on the Royal and Pilot trains. The nights of May 29 and 30 will be spent by the King and Queen “ashore” again, this time at Victoria’s Government House. The night of June 1 will be spent at Jasper Park Lodge; this hotel, as in the case of Banff, being wholly reserved for the Royal party.

No further break in the monotony of steady travel occurs until the nights of June 8th, 9th and 10th, when the King and Queen will be guests of the United States. Returning to Canada during the night of June 11-12, living quarters will be continuously on wheels until the seaboard is reached and the King and Queen board H.M.S. Repulse, homeward bound. When side journeys are made by car in the Maritimes, even on the day when a destroyer carries Their Majesties to Prince Edward Island, the Royal train will be rejoined in the evening for sleep while travelling. No wonder solid comfort takes precedence over falderols in the appointments of the two cars which will be the Royal home for this month in North America. With such a journey in view. Their Majesties will need all the comforts Canadian ingenuity can provide !

The other cars in use. I am informed by a highly placed railway official, will simply be first-class Canadian rolling stock, as purveyed to you and me when we are on the move. The two railway companies will provide it fifty-fifty, each having prepared its own quota in its own shops, with much conferring back and forth to make sure of well-matched jobs. No new gewgaws of note will be added to standard equipment, the railways believing that the quarters they sell to the public are just about tops anyway. Carpets, color schemes, woodwork and suchlike will match, of course. Otherwise, the equerries, Ministers and secretaries will travel as John Smith the salesman does on his employers’ behalf.

Picked Train Crews

EACH railway will attend to matters of operation over its own lines, providing crews and picking these up at divisional points as the train moves along. Much has been written anent the personnel of these crews as the winds of rumor have blown over the route, but you may take it as gospel that nobody knows who will pull the throttle, whistle the air brakes or carry the orders, and nobody will know until the throttle-pulling is ready to be done. No doubt some people have a pretty good idea they are likely to be called. Engineer Eugene Leclerc, the C.P.R. engine driver who piloted King George V when the present King’s father toured Canada as Duke of Cornwall in 1901, is slated for the first run from Quebec to Montreal at the throttle of his shiny streamlined “2850,” but, strange to say, announcements of the identity of operating personnel are likely to result in the selection of others, which simply comes under the general heading of protection and precaution. You may be sure that whoever steps to the throttle in the yards at Quebec on the morning of May 16 will have had a very thorough going over by the medico before he goes to work. Generally speaking, members of the numerous running trades will not know definitely themselves until the time comes who will work, and probably the only definite inkling they will have in many cases will be the boss’s suggestion that it might be a good idea to get a haircut and come to work looking pretty shiny. There is more to the idea than a gentle touch of mystery. What some people don’t know won't hurt them.

Regional operating chiefs, divisional superintendents and suchlike personages will be aboard through their various territories. Track and roadbed conditions will have been submitted to vigorous inspection and manicuring immediately before the train and its pilot proceed over any given

division. But that's just routine, say the railways, pointing out that these are approximately the precautions taken before you and I transfer our persons from Windsor to Montreal, or from Ottawa to Winnipeg.

Canada will provide numerous personnel for the duration of the ride, but the designation that so-and-so will be the Royal trousers presser or the Royal shoeshiner is described by Doctor Coleman of the Interdepartmental Committee, as somewhat exaggerated.

During March, for example, it was announced enthusiastically by the home-town press that Paul Emile Tassé of Ottawa’s Chateau Laurier barber shop, a gentleman of razors and shears who has been disconsolate since his best customer, a certain Mr. R. B. Bennett, went to live in England, will be the Royal barber. This, says the Undersecretary of State for External Affairs, is (or was) completely erroneous. Probably Mr. Tassé will ride on the train. There wi 1 be a barbering outfit, and Mr. Tassé will bring along his shaving brushes, his razors, his clippers, and probably a bottle or so of stuff to make a man's hair lie back. But he won't be the Royal barber, because His Majesty’s valet attends to the little hem of the daily shave and the clipping of the King’s locks. Mr. Tassé will simply be there to attend to the tonsorial requirements of the passengers and will be kept busy looking after the beauty of equerries, secretaries, archivists and others who cannot abide the idea of running razors over their own cheeks.

I have no doubt His Majesty will send for Mr. Tassé one morning to come and shave him, because that would please the good Paul Emile inordinately, providing him with conversation with which to regale his customers in the Chateau for many moons to come. His Majesty is just that sort of person. The trait, in fact, is common to the family. So Mr. Tassé will shave his King some morning. But he will not be the Royal barber. A fine distinction, perhaps, but the arrangements for such an expedition as this are full of nuances.

What will Their Majesties eat and drink as they speed

across the domain? Who will do the ordering, and who will attend to the little matter of cooking?

Royal Cuisine

THE answer to the first question is simple, for the excellent reason that Their Majesties’ tastes and requirements in matters of cuisine and the palate are by no means exotic. So far as the King is concerned, give him a cut off the joint, medium with a leaning toward the rare, potatoes and mashed turnips, and he is the happiest fellow alive. Beyond this, his tastes pretty well run to that of the type of citizen who. when phoned at the office by his wife, wanting to know his ideas about dinner tonight, says. “Oh, just give me anything you have in the house, dear.” He likes fruit, salads, toast and tea. He doesn’t go in very much for sweetstuffs, and he is not one of those people to whom each visit to the table must be a new adventure revealing unexpected gustatory delights. In fine, a plain, everyday light eater. The Queen’s taste, they tell me, parallels her husband’s.

As the train rolls across Canada, the foods of the country will of course be served, partly because that is the custom, partly because Their Majesties are interested. Out in the Winnipeg sector you may be sure goldeyes will be cooked, probably for breakfast. Around Lake Superior fresh whitefish will be taken aboard. I have no doubt somebody in Quebec will try to slip a bowl of soupe aux pois between the Royal knives and forks—and I trust His Majesty likes it well enough to carry the recipe home and introduce this dish to England, which would be Britain’s gain and probably cement the Empire tie forever. Good simple foodstuffs, and. now and then, what may be called the food of the country, will be the fare on the Royal train, both in Their Majesties’ own dining room and in the dining car which will be used by the remainder of the party.

In charge of menu and larder will be Harry Martin, supervisor chef to the Canadian National dining-car

service. Overseeing preparation of the meals will be the gentleman who performs similar rites when Lord Tweedsmuir travels, for the Governor-General has placed not merely his cars but his chef at the disposal of the King and Queen for their month in Canada.

Safeguarding Their Majesties

'TTIE safeguarding of Their Majesties has been placed entirely in the hands of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, whose commissioner, as already noted, will be aboard the Royal train throughout its journey. At every stop a veritable cordon of jx>lice, with assistance from local forces and provincials where required, will see to it that no inconvenience is caused, that none of what is known in North America as “pushing around” transpires. Anyone passing through the lines must carry impeccable credentials. synchronized throughout the country, in order that no unauthorized persons, whether busybodies or worse, may succeed in crashing through. Special arm bands will be issued. Identity cards will be carried. Matters of rights and qualifications will be scrutinized with extreme care. All this will have been attended to before the tour begins and by one central control force. By night, while the Royal couple and their attendants are at rest, the train, when halted, will be drenched in light from mammoth floods set up on the train itself, so that they may be controlled from aboard. “Ashore,” every precaution will be taken to protect Their Majesties from ill-considered enthusiasms and the attentions of thoughtless well-wishers. At the train short shrift will be handed out to busybodies on the one hand, souvenir hunters on the other. Possibilities of attempted outrage? Canada is not worried much on that score. The R.C.M.P. are ready for any contingency.

The Pilot train which will precede the Royal train,

The timetable of the Royal Tour will be found on pages 76 and 77.

Design for a Royal Welcome

“ Royal Train "

Continued from page 11 -

running twenty minutes in advance throughout the tour, is, in itself, a protecting-train as well as a means for transporting writers, photographers and newsreel men. Obviously such a train constitutes a final check-up on track and other running conditions. The pilot train will consist of six sleepers, lounge cars, diner and three baggage cars, in one of which a dark room will be erected for the use of photographers escorting the Royal party. In addition a post-office car will be carried, a car which becomes a mailing address for the receipt of letters and parcels for the^uration of the visit. “Royal Train, Canada,” is the post office designation, in case you want to send Their Majesties a note.

Aboard the pilot train will be fifty-four newspaper and magazine correspondents, radio commentators from the C.B.C. and leading chains who will keep the world apprised of the progress and events of the tour. Photographers and newsreel men, with their cameras and sound equipment, will round out the passenger list. (There were 7Ù0 applications for places on the pilot train.) Correspondents. strange to relate, will experience considerable difficulty in covering their assignment at times, due to the fact that they will be riding ahead of “the news” and not behind it. At points where only short halts are made, for example, the Press will have come and gone before Their Majesties arrive. At others press men and photographers will be able to witness the arrival (unless their own train has been pulled ahead to make room), only to leave as the welcome at Sherbrooke, or Brandon, or Medicine Hat, gets under way. Actually the ladies and gentlemen charged with “covering” the Royal Tour and with searching for and reporting upon its human interest angles, will only be in the company of their assignment in the centres of population where major stays are made and during the rest days (so called) at Banff and Jasper.

Communication With London

WHAT OF affairs of state while the tour is in progress? Suppose a new crisis arises? Suppose His Majesty's advisors in England feel the need of consultation with the Monarch?

The fact is that His Majesty will be virtually as “available” for consultation with the Home Government as though he were in residence in Buckingham Palace. Thanks to the telephone, wired and wireless, he will be able to talk to London from the Royal train whenever the latter is stationary. A ’phone service complete with private switchboard has been installed aboard the train and at every stop this will be “plugged in” to the local ’phone system. An ordinary long-distance call will then enable the King to speak to London or any other major city in the

world, for that matter. This novel ’phone system will also provide intercommunication between the cars whether they are stationary or in motion. Two operators will travel aboard the train to service the switchboard.

When pilot train and Royal train cross the international boundary at Niagara Falls at 9.10 and 9.30 o’clock respectively on the night of June 7, no outward change in what by then will have become usual procedure will take place. The rolling stock will remain the same on each train, with the exception that motive power of United States lines will be impressed into service, these units conforming to the color scheme of the Royal train itself. Train crews of the roads over which the trains will run will, of course, be provided. With this exception, no change in personnel will be made. The safeguarding of Their Majesties will remain the charge of Commissioner Wood of the R.C.M.P., who, obviously, will have the collaboration of the United States Secret Service and of local and other police units wherever halts are made. The primary function of the police will remain unchanged, however, and plans laid down for the Royal visit to the United States have been worked out in consultation with and under the direction of the head of the R.C.M.P.

Here, then, is an eye view of the streamlined, air-conditioned Royal residence on wheels which will carry Their Majesties from Quebec to the Pacific and back to Halifax. WTiat will it cost? Who will pay the bills?

Expense Not Spared

THE Canadian Government has appropriated $350,0(X) to cover the expenses of the Royal tour, virtually all of which will go into, first, the cost of refurbishing equipment and, second, the cost of operating the train across Canada and hack. From this it must not be inferred that $350,(XX) is the assessment of cost of the Royal tour. Canada will foot the bill, first, at the Citadel in Quebec; for the stay in Ottawa (other than civic expenditures on decoration); for the rest days at Banff and Jasper; for the stay at Government House in Victoria; for various items of travel, other than by rail; and for the rail journey itself. But the numerous civic entertainments to he undertaken will be supplied by the communities themselves, and when it is realized that Montreal alone expects to spend $100,000 on Their Majesties’ eight-hour visit to that city, it is reasonable to say that a figure somewhere between $2.000,000 and $3,000,000 can be marked down as the “official” expenditure of Canadians through what may be called tax sources, without regard to what private corporations and individuals will expend on decorations and such matters.

The Canadian Government, for example, has purchased four automobiles for the use of Their Majesties throughout the tour, two from General Motors, one each from Ford-Lincoln and Chrysler. As the tour begins, two of these will be in Quebec for use in the day’s transportation about the city, the other two in Montreal for use there on the following day. As soon as the Quebec festivities are ended, the two cars used in the Ancient Capital will be loaded onto freight cars and shipped to Ottawa. In this manner a leapfrog arrangement of motor transport will be maintained throughout the tour, so that cars may be ready and conditioned against Their Majesties’ arrival in all centres where halts are to be made. On completion of the tour the cars will be resold to the manufacturers (or such is the present plan) at their original cost, less normal depreciation charges. Here, at least, is opportunity for four souvenir hunters with money in the bank to acquire mementos of the occasion. No shortage of potential buyers exists, I am credibly informed.

Actual cost of furbishing, furnishing and operating the Royal train will be in the vicinity of $200,000. Transportation charges will be billed to the Government of

Canada, as they are billed for all such special services and at the same figures In it Their Majesties, the Royal household. Canadian representatives and servants will be whisked across the country at speeds which will approximate those developed by the country’s principal trains in the various sectors of their routes. In it the King and Queen will establish their home for a month on North American soil. From it they will descend, almost every day, to greet their subjects on station platforms, to attend official functions, to drive through the streets of the Dominion’s principal cities to receive the welcome of their subjects. A long and arduous journey, my friends.

Preparations for such a visit, particularly in a country in which no precedent may be said to exist, involve tremendous detail. On every major point it was necessary to consult with London, secure approval, listen to suggested changes. Acting Private Secretary Lascelles made a special journey to Washington from I-ondon to confer with the United States Government concerning the four-day visit to the neighbors. No effort has been spared to organize a well-knit expedition, designed to bring Monarch and subject together with as little inconvenience to either as possible. The final Canadian court of appeal is the Prime Minister himself, even to control of press releases. Objectives have been clearly stated in a memorandum released by the Government which describes these as: (1) to enable as many Canadians as possible to see the King and Queen. (2) to allow Their Majesties to see something of typically Canadian life and scenery, and (3) to enable Their Majesties to enjoy their tour by travelling in safety and comfort.
