CENTENNIAL PAGEANT TO BE MOST SPECTACULAR SHOWN HERE ELABORATE SCENERY, COSTUMES READY FOR SHOW Pampa's third Centennial paffe- ant, scheduled for production Thursday and Friday evenings at fairgrounds park, promises to be the most colorful and elaborate of any ever staged here.

This ^dramatic episode will depict the execution of Black Stephen who led the Spaniards away out on the Staked Plains in search of the Seven Golden Cities of Cibola, telling Coronado that much gold lay "farther on," but all the time hoping to lead Coronado and his Spaniards to the high plains where he believed .they would die of thirst or be killed by the Apaches. The next scene will show an Indian village. The background will be formed by wigwams and totem poles. Around each fira, Indian warriors will be silling, smoking and talking. The lorn toms strike a fsignal. Instantly the cnliro camp will grow motionless. The Indian warriors will form a half-circle behind the tom-tom and begin dancing. An Indian dancer will spring to the top of the large torn torn and with his feet pound out a barbarous rhythm. Lighting effects, costumes and colorful Indian scenery will make this scene one of the most beautiful in the pageant. Boot Hill Shown The story of old Tascosa will be told in five scenes, including street scene, dance halls and saloons, cow- poys riding down main street shooting and hell-bent for leather. A dance hall scene will show a typical frontier bar and dance hall. An argument begins and ends in a murder. A gun fight begins.

The spotlight will change and show the Boot Hill .Burial. -' •" Other episodes in the pageant will portray the xlestructive methods of ];he buffalo hunters. It will impressively show an Indian standing on );6p of a high mesa sorrowfully regarding the bleached bones of buf- ' fajoes, ai'ter u buffalo hunter followed by his skinners cross the stage. Other episodes will show typical (ranch scenes. The pageant was written by Ben Guill, director, and Ernest Cabe, who will describe the action of the pantomime over a loud speaker system. Mr. Guill known over the soulhwest for' his dramatic successes has devoter the portion of his time in the last few weeks to production of the spectacle. Mr. Guill coached one championship one-act play and sent another one into the finals. Adobe Walls Battle Probably the most spectacular scene in the entire show will portray the battle between buffalo runters, including Billy Dixon, and several hundred Indians at Adobe Walls. Hundreds of rounds of ammunition will be fired and nearly 100 horses will be used. The scene will faithfully follow the account of the batlle as described by Billy I Dixon in his autobiography.

The climax of the unprecedented cavalcade of the old west will be an Indian baltle in firework. Figures of Indians, wagons, soldiers, guns, bows, arrows, teepees, and Indians scalping while men will be shown in screaming, bursting, framing shells that will provide a brilliant ' electrical display in the heavens. Onan Barnard will be in charge of guns, and Jack Wilson and Scott Green in ..charge of ammunition and fireworks. A pyrotechnic expert from the Illinois fireworks company, Dannville, 111., will come here to supervise the Indian battle in fireworks.

OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS IN WARD SCHOOLS TO ADVANCE A summer band for ward .school students will be conducted this year by A. C. Cox, band director at Sam Houston school. Registration will be on Monday at the red building on Ihe high school campus. Beginners and Ihose wilh liltle band experience will enrol in the morning, beginning at 9 o'clock. The first band, composed of children able to play first grade music and above, will be registered at 1:30. Practice will be held regularly on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, the first band from 10:30 to 12 noon, and the second band from 9 lo 10:30 a. m. If each ward .school is sufficiently represented in the band school, it will be rehearsed separately in addition to regular practice, beginning aboul August 1, Mr. Cox announced. A trip to the state Centennial celebration in Dallas during August is being planned in connection wilh the bond school, probably for a picked band of about 50 members. Mr. Cox invites parents of younger children to investigate band possibilities, as he has conducted a class of children from Ihe first three grades the past term and prepared them for regular band membership next fall. He also asks that parents inquire about instrumentation in the band their children arc to enter, before they choose the instrument he is to learn. As a rule, school bands are over supplied with cornets and saxophones, and have too few alto clarinets, french horns, oboes, and bassoons. If the child learns one of the unusual instruments, competition for a place in the band will not be so keen and he is more likely to be given a regular band posl earlier, he explained. -^f It is estimated that sufficient motor fuel can be obtained from U. S. deposits of bituminous coal and oil shale to supply the nation for centuries.

Labor Hlrikra, heavy rains and other Kromingly insurmountable barriers lo the opening mean nothing to the to,000 employes scurrying like so many ants over Ilin 200 acres. General Manager William-A. Webb looks out his window at scaffolding, muddy grounds, spini-landscapcd terraces, buildings with only steelwork visible and voices Ihe general sentiment: The show will open Saturday— virtually complete." The finest single structure of all, however, the $1.200,000 hall of state building, will not be ready. A walkout of some 100 skilled laborers has stopped the work. Contractors and exposition officials sought frantically to effect an agreement which would put workmen back on the job of finishing the structure's magnificent interior. Hammers are swinging night and j day with 24-hour shifts in effect, over the grounds. Landscaping is' well under way and the bcauti- ficlion program running smoothly. Oddly, the government's work progress administration building will be the last finished. Only concrete for a foundation lias been poured. The opening day program is com- plele. Secretary of Commerce Daniel C. Ro))er will open the exposition- unlocking the main gate at high noon wit lithe twist of a $50,OflO jeweled key fashioned expressly for the ceremony. The secretary will invite Ihe world to Texas' exposition. Telegraph, cable and radio will carry his invitation on a globe-girdling circuit and as the words return two minutes later, they will set up an electrical impulse which will swing wide the gales. Prom Ihe Cotton Bowl stadium, where Secretary Roper will leacl the procession lo strains of the president's United Stales marine band, an impressive, w'-orld-widu radio ceremony will officially open the .fair.

Instead of facing firing squads, 50 seelcted communists nabbed in recent police raids are undergoing six month's intensive study of political science, doctrines of the Chinese nationalist party and history.
