said that It was the idea of the Red
Cross that the fete should not be
termed a carnival, but would be called
the "Festival of the Allies." He said
those behind the movement believed
that with a proper entertainment el
ending over a period of four days, a
lame sum could be derived for the
lied Cross society. Various forms of
attractions were discussed dnring the
past several days by members of the
society. Ir. Brown said, among which
"ould be a pageant procession, an
Ysleta Indian feature, dancing, negro
minstrels, merry-go-round, dog show

length. Nothing definite was accom

of the women present that It would
not be proper to have a queen but to
have a "Miss America" or "Liberty"
with her court.
Mrs. S. H. Sutherland was appointed
to ascertain how many floats could be
secured for the proposed pageant,
which will probably be held at the
opening of the festival. She said she
believed she could secure the neces

also be ascertained whether a festival
