Age .and. youth combined in celebrating the occasion, of the opening of what has been termed . -one of the greatest scenic roads in the west. At the-highest point of the hill climb overlooking the bay, the trading cars were greeted by an aged man, who, from his appearance, might have been a hermit and who doffed his hat and gave a feeble cheer , as theJiead of the procession swept away. ' SURPRISED BY GIRLS. It was thought by many that dedication ceremonies would be held 1n the natural amphitheater near; the junction of the Skyline Boulevard and the Tunnel road" but the parade continued . down through Claremont and Piedmont without a half. Before reaching. Piedmont Park where refreshments were served, a pleasant surprise awaited the a'utoists. A'g the first of the cars reached the Technical High Bchool a bevy of pretty girls ran out loaded with , bouquets of flowers and packets of colored postcard Views of Oakland which they presented to the autoists. Miss Myrtle Harlow ptrined a rose on Mayor Davie. Among the flower and postcard' distributors were Miss Margaret Larsen, Miss - Winifred Lutx and Miss Margaret Avery.
