Ba*eba!! Gam* I The chief end and aim of the Flag ijnay celebration on February 22 at South Pasadena Is to keep alive the . spirit of patriotism among tho people, especially the younger generation. ■Washington's birthday is usually made the occasion for many varieties of celebrations, chiefly of purely holi day character. South Pasadena citi zens will make the most of the pat riotic significance of the day. Pa triotism is the keynote. It Is the Intention of the South Pas adena chamber of commerce to revive so far as possible the original form of observance, and to make February 22 this year one that will serve to teach the lessons of patriotism and inculcate that spirit of love for one's •country that Inspired the founders of the republic. There will, of course, be a certain holiday feature to the pro gram, ,but it will be made secondary ■to the main purpose. The holiday element will be injected merely to the extent of giving the visitors an oppor tunity to see the various parts of the city and of witnessing the decorations [Of many homes with American flags' as an expression of the patriotic Im •pulso of the people. Committees Are Active John D. Iteavls, chairman of the committee on arrangements, is being «.hly minis ted In completing the plans for"the day by L. L. Washburn, C. B. Uoothe, W. P.

Boothe, president of the board, recently sent Invitations to the mayors and members of the councils of Los Angeles and all other Southern Cali fornia cities to be present, and ac ceptances have already been received from Mayor Karley and members of the council of Pasadena, as well as the officials of Alhambra and Pomona. The Lincoln Park league has do nated handsomely to the fund and the western part of town has already raised over $100 in private subscrip tions. Samuel Allerton, noted and wealthy resident of South Pasadena, has also contributed and is taking an active Interest in the celebration. Mr. Allerton Is a. member of the South Pasadena chamber of commerce, The Improvement league of the One onta Park district, headed by John K. Gentle, E. P. Bosbyshell and John Stuart, is taking an active interest In the day and will contribute both auto mobiles and funds to help make it a success. Procession of Presidents The parade of the day has been scheduled to start at 10:30 a. m., and Hie route selected covers about six miles and will take about on and one half hours to traverse. This pageant. •which will be called "The Procession of the Presidents," is expected to con tain over 200 automobiles and horse drawn vehicles. Four floats represent jj Ing the public schools will bo In lino and the Royal Neighbors and other fraternal organizations will be simi larly represented. The parade will be headed by a drum corps .if eleven vet erans of the Soldiers' Home, and sev eral other, military organizations are expected to parade. "Work on decorating the streets along the line of march Is soon to be started, n.nd over 1000 flags of various sizes will be required for the work. At all street intersections panels will overhang the streets, containing pictures of the presidents from Washington to Taft. hence the title, "The Procession of the Presidents." An unusual feature of the day will be the ostrich plucking; tit the Caw ston ostrich farm. Many gigantic birds ■will lie made to yield their plumes. Through tii" efforts of Professor O. 1 C.
