Iowa Picnic in California Set on Aug. 7 lowans, among them many North lowans, will again gather .thousands strong for Jhe animal summer picnic of the Iowa Association of Southern, California which will be held at Los Angeles 1 spacious Lincoln Park Saturday Aug. 1. The picnic marking 49 years of Iowa reunions in southern California, will get under way with registration at 9 a. m. Registration lists will be posted at trees throughout the park for each of Iowa's counties, so that fellow Hawkeyes may locate friends from their home districts. A prominent speaker, not yet named, and entertainment will feature the program to be held in the park, following lunch. As the park has facilities for feeding only a limited number of people, pic- nicers are advised to bring their own basket lunches. Association President J. Ray Files, Los Angeles attorney and former Fort Dodge resident, has stated that plans are under way for a successful picnic in spirit with the objective of the Iowa Association: "The closer union of all former lowans and their friends to enable them to renew and form acquaintances and to promote the fraternal spirit that inspires those who come from the same state." On the committee for the picnic are these lowans: Karl F. Geiser, Beverly HilJs attorney, chairman; Carlyle F. Richards,, secretary; J. Ray Files, president; Dr. Robert R. Borland, treasurer; Dr. Glen J. Greenwood; H. J. Garretson; ex- California Governor Frank F Merriam; and Leonard J. Roach accounting supervisor.
