CALIFORNIA IS A FROLICSOME SEXAGENARIAN Sixty Years Young the State Feels as Its Birthday Approaches Admission Day Celebration to Be Gay With Merriment and Mirth California would ho entitled to have f '"> randies on her birthday cake on next ' Friday. September f«, but she will have • \u25a0 many thousand more than that during ihe ihreo days of festival which the Native Souf and Native Daughters of the <Jplden West are planning for the .. celebration of California's admission into the union. The sons and daugh f ters <..f the golden state are planning , elaborately for the three days of mer riment — California's birthday party. ' While the preparations are largely in the hands of the San Francisco parlors of the tv.-o orders the celebration itself \u25a0will be participated in by loyal Cali for.'iians throughout the state, and daylight parade and night time pageant j . will attract thousands of visitors to i the <ity. T>n thousand members of the j order of Native Sons of the Golden j Wen and 4,000 members of the sister order are p'«?dged x.o appear in the parade on Friday, and during the other periods of festivity there will be thou sands and thousands of native eons and native daughters at the front, stimulat ing the fun and frolic of the festival. The streets are already'decorated with evergreens and flags for the celebra • tion. .. CALrronxn iiomk of frolic • ; California was a hard state to win, .; " -but the winning is easy to celebrate. There were wars and insurrections be fore, the golden 6lopes of the Sierra, and the golden flower valleys of the rivers were part of the United States. The admission of California into that union of states must therefore be celebrated with frolic and cheer. I'nder the Spanish and Mexican regime California was a place of frolic and fandango. Under the American life of today California has not lost her pro pensitj- to frolic, and \u25a0while the fan . daiigo has given way to the twostep there is still dance music in the air. That dance music will be the feature of the celebration. The celebration will : open Thursday with royalty and close Saturday with jollity. As royalty will etay with the celebration to the end, so jollity •will be with it from the begin ning. From the time Queen California, who is now Miss Grace Bmith, a popular member of the order of Native Daugh ters of the Golden West, enters into her reign at Union square, at 2:30 o'clock, on Thursday, September 8» until the orchestra at the mask ball at the Auditorium plays its last noie so late Saturday night that it will be Sunday morning, there will be no cess ation of the fun. The official program for the three days' celebration was issued yesterday. But the official program is but a skele ton of the festival, which must be ani- P mated with the flesh and blood of celebration and garbed with the rai ment and motley of carnival before '.-• it can approach the real spirit of the .. sixtieth birthday party of old Cali fornia. The fun starts at 1:30 o'clock Thurs day afternoon at the ferry, when the reception committee of the celebration meets Queen California and her court. The maids of honor who will attend Queen California are: Esther Johnson, Emily Marsky, Aileen Donnelly, Jennie . Schultz, Mrs. John F. Weeks, Lillian Jordan, Anna Dunn, Julia Mantor, Llllie Peterson, Katherine Guilfoy, Agnes Gallagher, Mrs. Luke Bolger, Laura M. Landers, Lorita Ballard. i.. The queen and her suite will march up Market street to Powell and thence \u0084.;• to Union square, where the coronation of the queen will occur. The escort of the queen will consist of Grand Mar shal Angelo J. Rossi and staff, the League of the Cross cadets, the Cali fornia Grays, the Nationals, and a num ber of parlors of the Native Sons and Daughters of the Golden West. Pending the arrival of Queen Cali fornia and her escort at Union squara, I a chorus of 5,000 school children, under the direction «>f Miss Estelle Carpenter, supervisor of music in the San Fran cisco school department, will give a concert. At 2:30 the coronation of the queen will occur at Union square. The qu^en will be received at the royal stand by Grand President Daniel A. Ryan of the Native Sons of the Golden West, Governor James N. Gillett and Mayor P. H. McCarthy. HElEmO\ TO QLKE.V After the coronation the joint com mittee of the Native Daughters of the Golden West will give a reception in the St. Francis hotel to the queen and her court and specially invited guests.
