It was an exceptional parade in view of conditions and certainly attracted one of the largest crowds in history according to City Police; AH downtown streets were packed. Following the parade rain started falling again and continued right on up to about 10 a. m. Despite the wetness the Livestock Show Coliseum was completely filled for the first performance of the rodeo which featured Cowboy Star Tex Ritter whose songs were the highlight of the show. At the end of the rodeo the-midway got a big play and was all set to -get into full ^swing when a downpour hit and the people fled for cover. This afternoon is designed school day and students will be admitted free to Fair park. Black, heavy rainclouds hung low overhead throughout Friday morning. •However, rain or shine the rodeo will stage its second performance in the huge, enclosed Coliseum. The rodeo itself received nothing but praise from first night viewers and of course, Tex Ritter, received a big ovation. The show has some of the meanest stock ever seen here and the crowd got a kick out of several of the ahgry Braham bulls who cleared the arena time and again. •Headed by Dr. Dolph Camp and the, Southern State College Band the parade took some 30 minutes to pass. Other bands included two from Hope High School of Hope Lewisville, Nashville, Prescott and Washington High of Texarkana. Despite the weather there were many creditable floats with Emmet High School taking top honors; Bodcaw school was judged second and Nashville's Terra Firma Garden Club a close third and Garland PTA fourth. Honorable mention in the float division was Oglesby PTA for their safety theme; In the boys' bicycle division David Morris was first, George Peck Jr., second and Danny Keeley third. Girls' bicycle division, Joyce Collier took first; Ann Ward second and Susan Forester third. Guy Watkins Jr., won the pet division honors with Robert Malcolm Byers second. Parade judges were Mrs. Agee Gilbert, Mrs. Sam McGill and Mrs. Chester Anderson, all of Fulton. Prize winners in each division can pick up their checks at the Hope Chamber ot Commerce office. -• ;--^- f v- • K«i <"*'» £-''''<!, •*- . ^•fivl Clearing Land Demonstration Is Wednesday The public is invited to see a land clearing demonstration Wednesday afternoon, October 6, 1954, on the Fred Cabiness farm adjacent to U.
