This was probably the greatest exhibition of its kind ever presented here. A life-savlng exhibition by the Duke and N. Grant pleased the crowd. The swimming and barrel race was won by Bud Taylor with Ray Skeet placing secondand Don Murchison finishing tbird. The tub and umbrella race furnished a lot of laughs for everyone. It was won eventuall> by H. Gibson. Sam Rikalo was second and Jack Gibson third. After a thrilling elimination of con- testants, Bob Strom was declared the winner of the water fencing tourna- ment. Bud Taylor was the runner- up, Geo. J. Higgins, Athletic Program Director, deserves a lot of credit for the splendid manner in which the var- ious events were presented. ----- ~---" : O :~---- TO RELEASE DENTISTS FROM AN UNFAIR LAW The primary purpose of one of the measures on the Oregon ballot in the November election is to permit dent- ists to advertise their prices, guaran- tees and qualifications, it was stated by Dr. S. T. Donohue, Eugene, Ore., dentist who instituted the bill. The measure is titled "Constitutional a:nendment forbidding prevention or regulation of certain advertisings if truthful." "Because this is a general election year," Dr. Donohue said, "and most of the interest centers in the presi- dential race, I wish to make clear, be- fore the excitement of the political battles completel: blots out other eon- siderations, my purpose in instituting this constitutional amendment. "The prime purpose of the bill--or rather, the first noticeable change it will effect--is nullification of i'he 1933 dental advertising law, which forbids any dentist advertising his prices, his guarantee of work, his years of expe- rience, or his superiority over any other dentist. "I have always been an advertising dentist, and naturally I feel that the 1933 law is unfair. However, that is only the first reform the bill will bring about. "It will prevent any future legisla- ture from extending this type of leg- islation to other professional fidds. For instance, if the amendment goes through, a bill such as the cosmetics bill, which died in committee, but which was copied directly from the dental law, could not be enacted. hi want it understood, however, that this amendment condones truthful and legal advertising only. The inclusior~ of the word 'truthful' and the word 'certain' wilI prevent any attempts at license in place of liberty in the ad- vertising field." Conm]emorating the 100th anniver- sary of the coming of the first Span- ish settlers into the eastern portion of the great San Gabriel Valley, more than 10130 costumed people and 500 horses in gay trappings, will al2Pear in a procession of golden yesterdays when the historical pageant-parade, La Fiesta del Rancho San Jose, is presented on Sunday, Sept. 20, at Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona. There is every indication that it will be the largest presentation of the kind ever held in the Southland. The dranta of California, like the unrolling of a scroll of living pictures, will pass in review before the huge grandstand at 10 a.m. and again at 7:30 in the evening. Scores of cities, civic and pioneer organizations from Santa Barbara to San Diego are join- ing in the preparation for the notable event staged under the auspices of the Pomona Valley Historical society. John G. Mott, well known Los An- geles attorney, civic leader and de- scendent of one of the founders of L~.~s Angeles, will serve as grand mar- shal of the day. He will be accom- panied by Don Adolfo Camarillo and other well known native sons on Cam- arillo's spirited white Arabian horses. Sheriff Eugene Biscailuz, himself the native son of an illustrious pioneer family, will head a unique equestrian group composed of pioneers who have resided in California at least 50 years. Opening with a brilliant, exotic in- terpretation of the legend of the Am- azon and the fabulous golden island from which California derives its name, a series of floats striking in de- sign and color will typify the flags of California history, discovery of Cali- fornia by Cabrillo, the founding of the missions, Yankee traders and proud Spanish Dons, discovery of gold and the rush of '49, the arrival of the clipper ships and many other episodes important and picturesque in the ro- mantic history of the state. Marchiug groups will typify such famous founders and explorers as Juan Bautista de Anza, founder of San Francisco; Felipe de Neve, found- er of Los Angeles, Jededia.h Strong Smith, trapper and adventurer, etc. Among the mounted groups will be seen such memorable characters as Don Ygnacio Palomares and Don Ri- cardo Vejar, who received the origi- nal Spanish grant to the fertile Ran- cho San Jose upon which the fair now stands; General John A. Sutter; Commodore Robert F. Stockton; Gen- eral John C. Fremont and his sol- diers; Joaquin Murietta and many others who played an important part in the development of the far west. Pioneer reunions, gala fiestas and colorful pageants will form a .part of the memorable event. Preparations for the fiesta have been in progress for the past two years and no effort is being spared to make it one of the most authentic and comprehensive events of the kind ever offered in Southern California. Such organizations as Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, Pasadena Tournament of Roses, Santa Barbara Fiesta, San Diego Pioneers,. Santa Monica Pioneers, Native Sons of the The greatest event in the history of organized yachting on the Pacific Coast was the Seventh Annual Com- modores' Cruise to the Isthmus held on the three days of September 5, 6 and 7. This cruise was inaugurated by the Catalina Island Yacht Club in 1930 at the suggestion and under the supervision of Staff Commodore Nor- man A. Pabst. It is an invitational cruise given in honor of the Couamo- dores of all yacht clubs affiliated with the Southern California Yachting As- sociation comprising the following yacht clubs : California Yacht Club; Long Beach Yacht Club; Los Angeles Yacht Club; Newport Harbor Yacht Club; Balboa Yacht Club; Alamitos Bay Yacht Club; Pearl Harbor Yacht Club, Hon- olulu; San D4ego Yacht Club; Coro- nado ' Yacht Club; Santa Barbara Yacht Cllub; South Coast Corinthian Yacht Club; Hi and Dri Yacht Club; Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club; and Cata- lina Island Yacht Club. Each year more interest has been taken in the cruise until this year the attendance of yachts and yachtsmen was the greatest in the history of any yachting event in the United States, there being 360 yachts of all types an- chored in the Isthmus Cove, Cherry~ Harbor, Fourth of July Cove and Ean- erald I3ay, with an estimated person- nel of 2000 yachtsmen and their friends. The first event on the program was the annual dinner on Saturday even- ing and the attendance totaied 650 persons, it being necessary to hold two sittings, as the dining-room could not acconunodate the crowd with one. Following the dinner there was a pro- gram of comumnity singing and im- promptu stunts while the crowd gath- ered around a hugebonfire on the beach. The Santa Catalina Island Company orchestra provided dance music in tbe Casino and the Hawaiian Orchestra strmnmed their native tunes for the happy dancers in Christian's Hut. Words fail in endeavoring to describe the entrancing beauty of the scene as witnessed from either the sea or from the top of the surround- Jug bills. The entire scene, illuminated by a full moon, the beach bonfire and the myriad twinkling lights on t~he hun- dreds of yachts at anchor, all reflect- ed in the smooth waters of the harbor, produced a picture of marvelous beauty. Sunday's program included a baseball game between the sailboat- men and the motorboat-men; sailboat races; power-boat races; land and aquatic sports; hula contest; and con- eluded with a picturesque "parade of the mutineers" in which ragged pants, red sashes, bandanna handkerchiefs, grass skirts and leis were the order of the "night". Following is a list of the events, to- gether with the names of the winners: 45-foot Sailing Association race from San Pedro to the Isthmus won by Art Westermark's yawl Seminole, with (Continued on Page 2, Col. 1) Golden West, Native Daughters of the Golden West, and many others have accepted responsibility for important entries.
