    .................................................................

    (Inauguration Day Ceremonies Part 2 will be airshipped later this week)
    .................................................................

    MONTREAL, APRIL 1967 - To what your appetite a quick tour around the EXPO site including footage on the following:
    AFRICA PLACE (The Pavilion of the 15 participating African countries) can be described as a series of units clustered to provide outdoor areas and broad pedestrian throughways. The site is bounded on 3 sides by canals and slopes from its centre to the canals around it. The countries will be showing their finest art and tapestries and through photographs and other media their terrain and their peoples.

    The PAVILION OF THAILAND is a glittering jewel - and popularly regarded as one of the most beautiful. Thailand has stood firm against the tide, opting to remain firmly rooted in its antiquity. The red and gold replica of a Buddhist Shrine and the smaller pagoda beside it stand out in sharp contrast to the rest of the buildings. The shrine will be decorated with exhibits from Thailand's national museum in Bangkok. The pagoda will show exhibits of the country's modern industry an craft. A replica of the Royal Barge stands in a shallow pool outside the pavilion.

    The PAVILION OF CUBA (in this limelight despite its small size) will present general understanding of Cuba - social and economic.

    The PAVILION OF BURMA is of traditional Burmese architecture with elaborate floral wood carving and lacquered painting with intricate line drawing. Their theme is Man & Friendship. Jewels, teak, agricultural products will be on display; music and dancing will contribute to the atmosphere of the Pavilion.

    The MEXICAN PAVILION is a soaring stylized seashell and will display sculptures of the pre-Spanish era in a theatre of Astec design. There will be a display on sports from ancient times to the Olympic Games (which Mexico will host in 1968)
    The WEST GERMAN PAVILION with its huge curtain roof is touted as being the best architecture on the sight. Beneath this mosh curtain the German people will portray themselves, their history and their future on intercontinental platforms at various levels.

    The PAVILION OF FRANCE entirely enclosed within walls of glass, surrounded by aluminus sunbreaker strips, provides an attractive sculpture effect. The French presentation develops around the theme of Tradition and Invention dealing with science and its many applications, human and social problems; ???? art; town planning and fashions.

    The PAVILION OF GREAT BRITAIN depicts a people who became a great nation and helped shape the history of the world. To step through its gates is to step back 3000 years. Britain has incorporated her official emblem (The Union Jack) in the jagged edges of the structure's 200' tower. The 18 feet tail sculptured figures underline Man & His World Relationship. The confusion of road signs adds humor; the unique sculpture fountain of fibreglass structure inlaid with multi-coloured mirror glass lends contrast. The fantastic Concord, a supersonic airliner - powered by 4 turbo jets will get off the runway in her maiden flight in February 1968...and promises the traveller a flight of 3 hours, 17 minutes, New York to London.

    In the NETHERLANDS PAVILION the visitor will find out how the Dutch build dikes and will learn of their water-management and land-reclamation projects in their never-ending struggle against the sea. The design is a light but strong cocoon-frame of aluminum tubing supporting roof, floor and walls. After-dark effects are outstanding.

    Inside the PAVILION OF BELGIUM the visitor will realize the fulfilment of the Belgian Motto "In all that concerns humanity, Belgium is involved". They will show fine examples of art treasures; natural and other resources; Belgium's political and social pattern is described. There are exhibits devoted to scientific progress; fine books, and agricultural products.

    The AUSTRALIAN PAVILION with its sloping walls of glass and aluminum is set on steel concrete pillars and has a graceful sweep. A coral wonderland represents part of the Great Barrier Reef. Four large murals depict aspect of Australia's role in the Man and His World Story. Contemporary art and the bark painting of the Aborigines will be displayed.

    The CANADIAN PAVILION will take you on a journey through the history, accomplishment, aspirations and geography of the country.

    The PAVILION OF JAPAN interprets the EXPO theme by showing the art, industry and the way of life of present day Japan. The three section pavilion is a blend of modern technology and traditional Japanese style. Japan is a major exhibitor at EXPO 67 and his preparing to host the next Universal and International Exhibition at Osaka in 1970.

    The PAVILION OF ETHIOPIA is a bright red 90' high tent representing Ethiopia's middle ages, with the golden lion up top and 4 tall white obelisks outside. The theme of the pavilion is the Antiquity of Ethiopian Civilization; and is a panorama of the history and culture of Ethiopia.

    The PAVILION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is big, bold, and awesome, and exudes the flavour of the land it represents -- it will deal with the USA that is, and the factory that made it so. Space is the big subject here. (Note: the minirail runs through the Pavilion)
    The PAVILION OF RUSSIA makes space the headline attraction of their show. Tradition and Invention is the theme of this Pavilion.

    The ITALIAN PAVILION is simple but striking and will express Italy in 3 forms: Poetry seeks a definition of the spiritual values that underlie Italian tradition; Custom explores the fundamental and most characteristic traits of Italian life; Progress introduce visitors to the forward-looking Italy of 1967.

    The SCANDINAVIAN PAVILION - Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland & Iceland have combined in their Pavilion to show "Man in Unity" -- This combined participation is tangible evidence that men and nations can work in close cooperation and unity. The 165 foot square prefabricated structure on slender steel columns is simple and based upon restrained and harmonic lines. The Scandinavian Design exhibit has been created to display a selection of work by famous designers, sculptures, artists, etc.

    LA RONDE (for laughs and fun) - 135 more monument complex where the visitor can go into orbit in fabulous thrill rides or be swallowed by a menacing monster lurking in the boiling lava of a volcano. Here also is the International Carrefour which offers a world shopping tour; the French Canadian village with its boutiques; the Aquarium and Dolphin Lake when humanity becomes just too much; take a 3 min. ride on LA SPIRALE - 330' high observation tower.

    EXPO'S WORLD FESTIVAL OF ENTERTAINMENT will take place in the theatres of Montreal and especially in the Place des Arts Complex which consists of the Salla Wilfrid Pullstier, the Theatre Maissonneuve and the Theatre Forz Royal. The Expo Theatre and the Autostad on the Expo Site along with 5 other locations, will also accommodate the performing arts, "spectaculars", sports and folkloric entertainment from six continents.

    PLACE DES NATIONS, a huge open area, where Inauguration Day ceremonies and all National Day ceremonies take place.

    The EXPO EXPRESS, 3 1/2 miles, double track around the fair site, is easy on the ears. The MINIRAIL is a secondary transportation to just about everywhere and looks like a lot of fun for a nominal fare. Transportation to the site by MONTREAL'S METRO is excellent.

    The multi-lingual, charming HOSTESSES will be most helpful and will delight girl-watchers.

    More than 650,000,000 viewers in 70 countries will view the inauguration ceremonies at Place des Nations, transmitted by satellite.
