Records of the police clerk In charge of issuance of parade permits disclosed that there uere 417 parades here last year—more than one a day—and at the present rate, there will be approximately 1 483 here in 1939.

Like a regiment from "Cirauslark" with fur- topped helmets, gold braided Jackets, while breeches and high-lop hoots, the troop lends prestige as one of the nation's oldest—and, Incidentally, most socially elite- military organizations. January gets most, of the glory with the Mummer's Parade on New Year's Day. Washington's Birthday gets most of the play in February. The frlsh are out strong on St. Patrick's Day in ..-Match. April's big parade comes on the sixth—Aimy Day. May, which averages about three processions a day, Is noteworthy for its May D&y celebrations, nnd Memorial Day observances. June has Flag pay, and July finds Philadelphia leading thc nation with Independence Day parades to the Cradle of Liberty at Independence Hall. August and September lag somewhat, although Labor Day will not pass without iin observance. October's main turnout is on Columbu Day, And at Thanksgiving Is what Is-becoming a second annual institution—the arrival of Santa Glaus at one- of thc city's leading department stores, which Is a Mummer's Parade for the younger generation.
