ELEVEN SCHOOL CHILDREN ESSAY CONTEST CLOSES JUNE 15 Sponsored by the Native Sons and Daughters of the Golden West, a statewide essay contest for school children in connection with La Fiesta de Los Angeles, that city's 150th birthday celebration, will be extended to June 15, according to plans made public recently, The fiesta which is announced as ,me of the main events on California's fiesta year program, will be held Sep- tember 4 t,~ 13. Response to the Native Sons and Daughters' invitation to pen essays on historic events in each writer's coun- ty has been widespread, and interest has been generated from one end of the state to the other, according to re- ports. Therefore, it was decided to continue the contest far beyond the date originally set. From every county, the plan is, one winner will be selected, with locally appointed boards to act as judges. Winners are to be taken to Los An- geles for the fiesta with expenses paid, aunotlncenlents say, t,~ witness the city's birthday celebration. While there, the young vcriters will see the centralized, official observance of Admission Day, September 9, by the Native Sons' organization. Pio- neers from everywhere in California have been asked to participate in that day's parade. On the program for other days there will be a congress of rough rid- ers, a historical parade, two-day avi- aticm fiesta, transportation parade, night of nmsie in Hollywood Bowl, pioneers' ball, parade by night of the motion picture industry in a setting of jewels beneath the rays of thou- sands of searchlights and other such spectacles. Easy contest plans are being di- rected by Grace S. Stoermer and I-Ier- man C. Lichtenbergr, past grand pres- idents of the two California organiza'- tions. School boards and principals have been interested, it is reported, in every county. Winning essays may be used as themes for ttoats, which different counties have been asked to prepare, depicting historical events within their boundaries. These floats are to be given prominent spots in the Los Angeles fiesta parade. ------~ O 2--- Let It Coast "Back this idea into that thing you call a brain-garage[" yelled the angry wife.
