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.

The Mounted Patrol at present consists of 27 men, but is rapidly gaining in membership.
