WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1941. -SASKATOON STAR-PHCENIX PAGE THIKTEFJf Torch Ceremony at Rosetown Colorful Huge Parade With Banners Closes With Speeches to ' Lead Victory Campaign ROSETOWN. On Saturday the Victory Loan committer staged its Torch Day ceremony as an initial item ot what will undoubtedly prove to be a highly satisfactory campaign. The committee In charge has their plane laid and arrangements for the Torch Day ceremony were in charge of the general publicity committee. A huge parade comprising many of "the schools in the district featured the morning's program which had been earlier arranged by the Elks Lodge. For many years past the Elks have carried out a big program on this date. The Victory Loan committee with the assistance of the local First Troop of Boy Scouts and Girl Guides entered a float in the parade which contained as its central figure a replica ot the Victory Torch which is being flown across Canada. Large banners supporting the Victory Loan covered the sides of the float while from the rear was suspended the honor flag. Boy Scouts riding bicycles as messenger boys and Girl Guides caring for a casualty on a stretcher completed the decorations on the float and carried out the theme of serv ice. A small company of Scouts in double file hauled the display and made a very effective showing. Immediately preceedlng was a company of the 87th Field Battery with one of their field pieces ot artillery in the lead and these added greatly to the general appearance ot the patriotio nature of the parade. In the afternoon a capacity crowd filled the big grandstand at the sports ground and the first half hour of the proceedings was occupied with the ceremony planned in accordance with the Torch Day program here. The ceremony opened with the singing of "O Canada" by the entire assembly led by the Swift Current Elks Band. The master of ceremonies was B. R. Arnell, local organizer for the Victory Loan. The Rev. R. Walker read the opening prayer which embraced the plea for victory and peace with special references to the separate branches of the services and civilian population. W. J. Scott, local chairman of the Victory Loan committee announced the opening of the loan on June 3 and was followed by an appeal for sup port by the Rev. L. A. Muttitt. B. R. Arnell then read the wording of the scroll and called on the officials of the town and other leaders who were on the platform to sign the scroll. These included W. Richardson, mayor of Rosetown, followed by Lieutenant Downs of the 67th Battery and a number of other individuals. The oath of allegiance was read by Scoutmaster Douglas Hill and the closing prayer of the ceremonies was taken by Father Drapeau. The ceremony concluded with the singing of the National Anthem. The platform provided a colorful scene with a detachment ot the 67th Battery in full uniform, a patrol of the Boy Scouts and an other patrol of Girl Guides. The ceremony was ot a dignified na ture and aroused a very deep en thuaiasm in the vast crowd which took part. Further publicity for the loan will be undertaken by the commit tee before the opening day of June 2 and a miniature fort is to be erected down town from which will fly the honor flag and which will be decorated with special posters. etc., which will call attention to the necessity for subscribing promptly and in full to this national effort. $249 Cleared for Queen's Fund 6EMAN3.
