Special Parade s Staged for Bedridden Boy yvKSTBROOK, Nfe., June 1. <UP> —Nine-year-old D»v!d Gagnon watched with wonder yesterday as tilt city staged a special Memorial Day parade in hlj honor. The youngster, slowly winning i battle for life after 100 surgical operation!, lay smiling In Bis bed near »n upstairs window In his home while hundreds of uniformed marchers paraded by to the roll of drums, the crash of cymbals and the music of a brass band. David was severely burned two years ago when his clothes caught fire while he attempted to stamp out a brush fire. Even today his body must be held In a special sling so none of his tender skin touches the sheets of his bed. It was a year «BO—at Uie height of his fight to live—that the boy said he would love to see a parade. It was then Just a daydream said without hope of fulfillment, But Mayor Ernest Porell ordered two Memorial Day parades: one at noon to pay tribute to the war dead and one In the morning for David. "It just doesn't seem real,"the boy repeated sevcrnl times as the ranks passed by In review. He watched the Boy and Qlrl Scout troops, the veterans' organizations, the platoon of police and the .smartly ranked Infantry company marching behind a 100 piece brass band. »•« named police chief following lengthy litigation and hit appointment recently had betn upheld by C).an:^llor 6am Garret!.'
