PASADENA, Auk. 9.— Fully 6000
Pasadenana went to Long Beach today
on account of the third annual Pasa
dena picnic given tinder the auspices
of the board of trade and Merchants'
association, while hundreds more took
the opportunity afforded by a general
suspension of business to visit the can
yons and scatter to the other beaches.
Chief of Police Plnkham with his
force of bluecoats remained to look
after the deserted city and tonight not
a single case of robbery is reported
and it wan found necessary to make
not a single arrest.
It was a - Puritan Sunday In Pasa
dena with nothing doing all along the
line. '
But with the Pasndena crowd at the
beach city It was different. There was
something doing every minute and lots
Of it ,
Long Beach has grown accustomed to
big j crowds and cares for them well
but the myriad of people from the

possession from the time the Pasadena
committee of arrangements arrived
shortly, after 9 o'clock proceeded to
"whoop 'er up" until near the mid
night hour.
Superlative Describe* It
It was a great picnic, even for a
Pasadena picnic, and these have come
to be looked upon as superlative in
©very respect. That's what this was —
9• In the first place the attendance
largely exceeded both of its predeces
sors. .
( In the second place the arrangements
for the day's enjoyment were the best
yet made.
- : In the third place the street car and
railroad accommodations were the best
yet secured, making the trip to and
from Long Beach comfortable and ex
■•■■■ Then,\ lastly, the greeting extended
by the Long Beach people was the
warmest yet experienced in these an
nual pilgrimages.
It Is no wonder therefore that the
returning hosts tonight are loud in
their praise of Long Beach and of
a delightful day's entertainment.
■' f Sports Commence
' ' The crowds had scarcely begun to
get their bearings . around the com
modious auditorium when the program
of sports began on the beach to the
east' of the auditorium.
Last year these., sports did not con
clude until late in the afternoon, al
most too late for the literary and
musical entertainment.
This year the committees determined
to have the sports run oft before the
noon hour so as to leave ample time
for a busy afternoon along other lines
of entertainment and the plan was a
clear success.
jSJjFA long stretch of the sand beach was
roped off, and here the races, were rap-
Idly run, one after the other. Interfered
with only occasionally by a sudden
sweep of a roller more determined than
its mates. The result of the events
held on the beach is as follows:
