,fMCTS SDITORIAL Parade opens festive event You'd htv« to IMnk awWte to VMM up with «n Institution that ha* surthfd for is long with as BtU*. dunge as U» county tub-. II was an old, eld English tradition b»«*«t U» tin* that provided the setting for the Robtn Hood myth, the purpose was about the same. H WM the place win** <*ch y«ar the people of the county could display to «eh other theirfinest talent and the products of that talent And wrapping it at) together and attracting the people was the festival atmosphere that provided frivolous things to do and we and eat Greatly magnified, this b what you travel to Angteton for this w«ck in your visits to the 1974 Bratoria Cbunly Fair and Fat Stock Show. The most spectacular single event b at the start, when more than a mile of floats and mobile displays form the Fair Parade. The early- afternoon procession isn't easy to see. Uakss you're wilting to wait several boors you'll have to park several blocks away and walk to the rattle. But tens of thousands consider it worth the effort If there's any single facet of a fair that's located in Texas' No. 1 cattle- producing county, it's the Thursday night junior livestock auction. It's a dramatic event when the auctioneer tries to inspire higher bxfcing for the champions and near champions; and listeners know that each higher bid means a little added boost toward a college education for a youngster who's agonized for a year over the care and feeding of the animal. Elsewhere among the many acre* of public buildings that make up the Fairgrounds, there are displayed the finest products of the county's agriculture, homecrafts, art In many forms, collections, gardening There are talent sfeowt. There are commercial exhibits. There are eight of the county's lovelies for the c|uecn choice* Even food, drink and confections on the display grounds serve* a community purpose. Your money Is going to be split between the Pair Association and the booth operator,, which is likely a Jayeee club, or Lions club, or some other community betterment group. For the newcomer, this is the nearest you can come to an overall view of Braioria County, summarized and organized for « summary showing at one place and at one time. It's worth your while to visit Last year's Fair started as one of the best, under the capable direction of Pete Goodman. It was a financial disaster, however, because of the rains that came heavily and continuously for the remainder of the week, wrecking attendance. It's to be hoped that this year's offering by Leon Buchanan's team will have better fortune with the element*. The Fair has many things that will interest and delight you.
