several projects are in preparation
for next year’s show. The Kiwanis
club has tentatively agreed to ar
range and operate a Happy Canyon
or some sucfirnt' for all three
nights next . In addition. a
definite promise of a substantial dis
play of fireworks has been made by
the Shell Oil people. through the
local distributor. ~ the Kennewick
Auto 00. This has long been a fea
ture which the celebration commit
tee has wanted to have. but the cost
has been prohibitive.
A revival of the old booster or
ganization called the Coyote Club
is being talked of with enthusiasm.
A feminine auxiliary has also been
promised if the group gets under
way. It is planned to have it made
up of local boosters who will have
charge of the outside advertising
—the Kangaroo Kourt and such
features of the entertainment.
The fire department is also nego
tiating for the purchase of a merry
go-round which has been in storage
for a couple of years. With repaint

should prove a valuable addition to
the entertainment feature of the

The Weather
An "Oddity in the News" can be
noted in this week's weather re
port for this district. On July third
—-both this year and imthe max
imum and minimum peratures
were exactly the same. But the
weatherman served up too much of
a variety to suit most of us, starting
with 102 last Thursday and then
dropping to eighty a couple of days
—-especially on the third. And while
it seemed like a cloudburst to those
who were in charge of the pioneer
parade, the official figure for the
precipitation for the entire week was
