Also, at McKinney Creek, 12 miles distant, site of cross- country skiing, a ski stadium and other facilities have been erected. Whereas only five years ago the sole access to Squaw Valley was by a narrow dirt road, today, for the greater part, four-lane highways now lead there from Reno, 45 miles away, and San Francisco, 200 miles distant. MOTORISTS ARRIVING at Squaw Valley will have no parking problem as a public parking area of compressed layers of sawdust and snow will accommodate 10,000 cars. A Navy Arctic con- "struction team will use snow- compaction equipment to keep the area serviceable. To reach Squaw Valley from Long Beach, take Highway 99 for the 400-mile run to Sacramento, thence on Highway 40 to Truckee, swinging into Highway 89 to Squaw Valley. Distance from Sacramento to the Valley: 130 miles. For safety in winter driving, those planning to attend the Games by automobile are advised to carry anti-freeze in radiators, and to be equipped with chains, flares, f l a s h l i g h t , tow-rope and shovels. Walt Disney has created the pageantry for the open- Ing and closing ceremonies of the Games. There will be more than 5,000 participants, including 52 California and Nevada high school bands playing as a single unit, and a choir of 2,645 voices. ONE OF THE MOST impressive sights will be the 79- foot-high Tower of Nations, located in the ceremonial area. From this open steel concave tower, 6-foot-high aluminum crests of all competing nations will be suspended in the grid of the frame. The Tower will be topped by five huge metal rings, emblematic of the Games. Ray Henderson, young Los Angeles composer, has written a special composition for the Games entitled "These Things Shall Be." It will be sung just before the arrival of the torch. A fanfare of trumpets will signal the raising of the Olympic flag. Then massed bands and chorus will join the Marine band in the Olympic Hymn and the Star Spangled Banner, climaxed by the " L i b e r a t i o n of Pigeons," a mass release of 2,000 "doves of peace," symbolic of world peace and unity. FOLLOWING the pigeon release, a three-gun salute will mark the arrival of the Olympic Flame, on its last lap from Greece. The torch will have completed a 9,000- mile journey from the plain of Olympia, carried by jet airliner from Athens to Los Angeles' Memorial Stadium. From there plans call for more than 600 high school athletes to run the torch by relay to Squaw Valley. Following t h e O l y m p i c Flame ceremony, the Olympic oath will be taken by the athletes. in a Dunuaoie insured Licei ADDITIONS BUILD OR REMODEL ,, With a Bondable Insured Licensed Contractor OF ALL KINDS New Construction All Types of Financing Available COMPLETE HOME MODERNIZATION QUALITY WORKMANSHIP GUARANTEED SATISFACTION WAIVED OF LIEN ISSUED UPON COMPLETION OF ALL JOBS .^WORKMANSHIP FULLY GUARANTEED "" ONE CALL DOES IT ALL--CALL ANY TIME FREE ESTIMATE SERVICE BELLFLOWER OFFICE DIAL - WA 5-2914 Imtntd.
