.c OLD RAD 18 Sec. Ill xamtacr w.Om.ii.iiw h cc SIDEWALK SUPERINTENDENTS They May Be Just Anyone! The virus of Sidewalk Superinten ditis, no respecter of persons or places, becomes virulent in beings of all shapes, sizes, weights, heights, colors and stations in life. As witness the gentleman from San Francisco's Chinatown (right), an obvious victim from long exposure to the work on Portsmouth Square garage behind him. (Note characteristic hand gesture as he explains the progress of the construction.) And (below) "Hot Lips," the Fleishhacker Zoo giraffe, who has the disease in an advanced stage from watching workmen building the moat around the zoo's giraffe paddock. The moat will replace present fences, a fact of which Hot Lips must be aware, having watched the construction from its start. However, Hot Lips, unlike other victims of Sidewalk Superintenditis, cannot seek relief by describing construction. Giraffes generally d on't approve of rubbernecking. Travelcatle of Progress Oakland Parades Its New Buses A "Travelcade of Progress" tomorrow will give Oakland and other East Bay communities their first look at one of 250 modern buses to be placed in service starting Christmas Day. The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District will present a procession at 11 a. m. through downtown Oakland. It will include one of the big new buses, horse and cable cars and vintage buses. DOWN BROADWAY The parade will move down Broadway from 10th St. to Grand Ave., then the motorized section will continue through Berkeley, Albany and El Cerrito to downtown Richmond. It will next head back to Alameda, East Oakland, San Leandro, Hayward and San Lorenzo. Santa Claus riding on top of a motorized "sleigh" loaded with noisemakers will head the procession. Near the head of the line, two black horses will pull one of the area's first horse cars which ran in Berkeley at the turn of the century. S. F. CABLE CAR A cable car, loaned by San Francisco, will symbolize the cable service run in the late 1880s into the hills of Pied mont. The 250 new buses will first of all be used on the district's 13 transbay lines. They are air conditioned, have fluorescent lighting, colorful interiors, high-backseats and "picture windows." All the coaches, built at a cost of $7,700,000, will be in service by next April. HERE ARE ROUTES The motorized section of the parade will follow these routes from Grand Ave. and Broadway: Broadway From Grand Ave. to College Ave.; over College Ave. to the University of California; west on Bancroft Way to Shattuck Ave., over Shattuck, Univer- Seo lYant Ails For IS.'irxnins Make a Christmas wish come true!
