VN, 8, 1936 BLYTI1KV1LLW, (AUK.) COUH1KN NKWH Millions Will See Exposi- lion, Opening Today at Dallas Hy NKA Service DA1.LAS, Tex. — Texas' KWlh birthday party opened here Saturday. Of C3 buildings clustered on (he grounds of the Texas Centennial Exposition here, C2 lire completed. Only the million-dollar Flail of State facing the main entrance to the grounds is still under construction. Beyond ttiat, every shrub, every tree, every electric light globe was In place when u great parade trekked five miles out from Dallas with Commerce Secretary Daniel Roller and Gov. James Allred in the van to open the show. A radio beam sent, around the world re- tnrnecl to slash a ribbon across the gateway. UNUKK 'SIX FI,AfiS >., Speakers represented the six flogs under which Texas has lived —the French, Spanish. Mexican, Lone Star Republic, Confederate, and United States. For this fail- is to glorify a region that combines tlii-ce of the most Interesting cultures of the United States, the romantic Old South, the lusty and vigorous Far West, and the picturesqueness of adjoining Old Mexico. The Cavalcade of Texas, a pageant., portrays stirring scenes from Texas history, the storming of San Antonio and the siege of the Alamo. Every effort lias been made to reproduce the utmos- ihere of the vanished frontier. THE KANGKRS— IN PERSON Genuine Texas Rangers, in person, swap stories with each other in a ranch-house headquarters on the Exposition grounds, and will! incidentally look after the polic- ! Ing. Next door Is an exact reproduction of the Jersey Lilly Saloon with its adjoining headquarters of' the fabulous Judge Roy Bean, who was "Tlie Law West of the Pecos" back in the" '80s and '!)0s. The straight-shooting Justice, who combined the best features of siiloon-kceping and justice-administering in one .small board, establishment, Is Impersonated by nn actor who looks like him. MILLIONS TO ATTKN'D Promoters of the Texas Centennial are countlm; on two things to endear their show to the 10,000,000 visitors cxiiccted. One is compactness — more exhibits and attractions" have Jieen crowded into a smaller space J than '• in most. expositions. The other is the hundreds of. seats, benches, and rest stations provided. The barking of sightseers' (togs, which at Chicago could be heard as far away as Keokuk. fa., is expected lo find to echo at Dallas. But there arc oilier noteworthy features. For the first time at any such national cxpa%'Jon. a building is devoted lo the progress of I he Negro race. The cotton and Industries are duly honored. History gets another nod in a reproduction of the first church built in the stale, San Miqnel KC Socorro set Sur, raised near El Paso in 1681. The exposition is remarkable for Its lighting system, which cost $500,000. Three thousand floodlight make night and day the tame. The federal government voted Sfl.OfK.OQO to the celebration of the Texas festival, most of which went to Dallas. Army ,navy and Marine units will also be sent to. Dallas at federal expense, for parade and police duty. Indians, prairie schooners, herds of longliorn cattle, log and board cabins, bucking bronchos, n reproduction of the Christmas Ball, the tilings which make the southwest's exposition noteworthy. HISTORY AND HILAK1TV And of course fill the midway features which have become exposition staples will be presented, the rides, the curiosity shows, the Foreign Villages, the modern versions of the Streets of Cairo, Ji.'iclher Ihey be fan dancers or 'nudists," will all be presented in abundance. But amid all the polllly of an exposition of education and fun, Texas remembers the battle of San Jaciiito, when during the summer exactly 100 years ago, they fought their way free of domination from the south and created the beginnings of what now the great empire of the southwest.
