"The prow of the San Marino float, dedicated to Australia, was a replica in flowers of the lyre bird, the characteristic bird of that nation. The body of the bird was formed of white sweet peas and lyre-haped tail plumage of thousands of Chinese lilies. The se ribes In the center was a floral foun- — tain and at the right a canopy of nink and orchid flowers with beau- j ties enthroned." ! I Pasadena Star-News de-, • San Marino's entry as "A gorgeous piece of artistry," while the Pasadena Post says, "While a million spectators faced the line of march and thanked the heaven? for offering sunshine, the City of San Marino float, depicting Australia, was awarded the grand sweepstakes prize for the 1932 Tournament of Roses. "The San Marino entry was woven about the lvre-bivd, native of Australia. It is' a rare fowl, only found in the Antipodes. The j bird's body was made of 150 doz- j en bunches of sweet peas. Thou-j sands of Chinese lilies were fash- j ioned into the tail feathers. There! was a fairy fountain in the cen-j ter. Six women outwalkers, cloth- j ed in delicate satin costumes-, and three Australian girls riding or 1 the float added a winsome note to • the gorgeous display of flowers ar*! ranged in exquisite patterns. Those so participating were Marv MRS. W. W. NASH Ì Who Had Much to Do in Making the San Marino Float a Success with the decision of the judges who gave it the place of honor. This does not mean to say oi infer that the conquest was an easy one, for there were numerous floats that presented beautiful features of coloring and artistry, but it does mean that all in all San Marino's contribution was easily entitled to first place. Monrovia had a lovely float, Al-hambra, Arcadia and other cities vied with each other to present attractive floral pictures, and all are entitled to congratulation. The entire pageant from start to finish was a notable one and reflects great credit upon the devoted officials who brought it into being, and furthered it to such h brilliant climax. Donald E. McDaneld, the presi-t dent, a citizen of San Marino, | comes in for a special meed ol | praise, likewise C. Hal Reynolds, also of San Marino, past president of the organization, and its pres-. | ent treasurer, gave much time and | though to the enterprise, and j William Dunkerley, secretary oi j the Chamber of Commerce and , Tournament Manager, with Charles i Cobb, C. W. Norris and others who ' gave of their time, efforts and i money to insure success. Our hat is off to these public-spirited gentlemen. Mounted Patrol Thrills All 1 The Mounted Patrol provided a! thrilling spectacle as they appear ed for the first time since organi-' men and among them Capt. W. A. zation, in the New Year's Day pa- j Falk, well known cavalry officer, expressed surprise at the unusual proficiency attained by the members of the patrol in view of the short time they have been training, but this is not to be wondered at in view of the fact that they are San Marinans and San Marino is quite exclusive. The Mounted Patrol at present consists of 27 men, but is rapidly gaining in membership. Owing to the short time available for uniforms to be secured only 16 mem-(Continued on Page Fifteen) rade, equipped in their new uniforms. | The San Marino Patrol is the only Legion unit of its kind throughout the United States.
