All types were there from beer' drinking fans of marching music to groups of screaming boys on sting ray bicycles, from senior citizens on lounge chairs to one - week - old Can - dice Joe Traver of Poughkeepsle In her mother's arms. But they an had one thing In common the moggy, stagnant, hot weather. By the time the parade reached the Vanderbilt Estate, rescue squads had handled at least a dozen cases of oretheatlng. ' Just after arriving at the estate, member of the Falcons Marching Band collapsed, sending emergency personnel again running. Propping her against a tree in the shade, they rubbed Ice packs and wet towels on her arms and legs. In a few minutes, she recovered and was laughing.

It's hot in the Big Apple NEW YORK (AP) - The nation's largest city celebrated Independence Day with tauslc. fireworks, hot dogs and a street fair and. above all, with tanning lotion, air conditioners and cool drinks. - The National Weather Service said temperatures would rise into .the m)d - 90s for the third straight day, and many New Yorkers who had not already fled the city spent their holiday at the beach. At the Jacob Rlis Beach Park in Gateway National Recreation Area In Queens, more than 150,000 people baked in the. sun and bathed in the Atlantic Ocean. Authorities said they were enforcing the state's new anti - nudity law at all sections of the beach, including those where the top - Jess and bottomless look previously had been tolerated. Another 570.0OO soaked in the sun at five city beaches, the City Parks and Recreation Department said. It was hot. but not that hot Not at least as on Indendence Day, JM9. when the mercury soared to 102 degrees in Central Park, a record for the date. Such weather usually dictates a lighter diet but not at Coney Island, where 11 contestants lined up for a shot in the 17th annual hot - dog - eating competition at Nathan's. This year the crown was won by Emil Gomez, 25, of the Bronx, an accountant who said he didn't even plan, to enter until he was walking by Nathan's and heard talk of the contest In 10 minutes. Iterate 10 hot dogs with rolls. How do you feel, Emil? "Full." he said. "I'm glad I'm sit - , ting down." Gomez, whose 210 pounds are distributed overa 5 - foot - 10 frame, edged out his brother Andre by half a dog. Gomez' performance was good enough to win. but not enough to break the record of 17 dogs set in 1959 by Walter Paul, a 260 - pound Brook - lynite. The city's festivities began at 10:10 a.m. with a 50 - gun salute at Battery Park, across the harbor from the Statue of Liberty. They ended at 9:45 p.m. along the East River, where more than one million people gathered between' 42nd and 14th Streets to watch a 30 - mlnute fireworks display sponsored by MacVf department store.

"Mrs. Calabash,' an elderly woman who boosted the spirits of the hard luck steel mill town of Midland, Pa., with $20,000 fat anonymous donations to a union food bank, shunned an invitation to ride in a bright red Cadillac and reveal her identity in that town's Independence Day parade. U.S. District Judge James C. Turk led 99 people in the oath of citizenship at the annual Fourth of July naturalization ceremony at Montlcello, home of Thomas Jefferson in Cnar - t lottesville, Va. Across the nation, 15t traffic fatalities were reported between p.m. Friday and 9 p.m. Sunday. In Atlanta. 25.000 people took off running In the 1 .2 - mile annual Peach - tree Road Race, but many were carried off on stretchers suffering from heat exhaustion in the hot and humid weather. In nearby Hampton, country music singer Willie Nelson, fresh from Sunday's performance' In New Jersey, played for about 40.000 fans. i Mother Nature drew thousands of spectators with her own spectacular at Hoover Dam near Boulder City, Nev.

Stars performing under the Gateway Arch on the banks ot the Mississippi River included Linda Ronstadt and the Osmond Family. In the nation's capital, singer Wayne Newton performed on the Mall In place, of the Beach Boys, who were dropped from holiday plans because Interior Secretary James Watt thought rock bands drew the "wrong element" He drew an estimated crowd of 215,000. "Through all this nonsense the two things I never lost faith In were the man upstairs and you," Newton told the crowd. Arriving in Atlantic City, N J. for their 7:10 p.m. surfside conceit, the Beach Boys glimpsed 100.000 people gathered on the beach by 4:10 p.m. "It's nice to see everybody didn't go to the Wayne Newton show," said Beach Boy Mike Love.
