Armistice Day is the anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918; and while, since 1954, it has been celebrated as Veterans Day, its purpose remains the same. It is a day devoted to honoring the millions of men and women who have given their lives and their services to their country in the armed forces. Originally it was a day of speechmaking and resurging patriotism.

There are those who are inclined to view the flag and patriotic observances as anachronisms and somewhat juvenile.

With the growing need, the organization has expanded greatly. So many more services are offered in the community that it truly requires the support of every resident."  Fund solicitation chairman, Alexander Smith made the following statement. "San Marino is supporting the 1969-70 Red Cross campaign in an enthusiastic manner. The extra demands placed on this important service organization are recognized by our citizens. Disasters, relief, and aid to service personnel and their families have brought into focus the need for the Red Cross. We urge ail who have not yet participated to send in their contributions as soon as possible. This will bring our drive to an early successful conclusion."

The undefeated South Pas Tigers are currently rated Number One Jn CIF and are in the top spot in the Rio Hondo League, haviiig won their first three league inatchups against Temple City; Bell Gardens, and La Canada.  However, the Titans with a 2-1 record will be in a probable first place tie with the 1  Tigers and the Temple City Rams if they can pull off a victory tomorrow night.  SM Falls to TC  Homecoming was a sad affair last Friday night as the Titans were edged 18-14 by the Rams. Temple City fullback Larry Mushinskie broke through the San Marino defensive tactics to tally three TD's and 160 yards rushing in 34 carries. Mushinskie broke lose from the Titan 23 and bulled has way in from the two to score twice for the Rams in the first half before SM had hit the scoreboard.  A five yard pass from Jim Shepardson to Gary Stevens brought the Titans back into the game in the second quarter. A second offensive drive was stopped short by the Ram defense in TC territory just before the halftime gun.  Mushinskie scored again from the one in the third quarter to keep Temple City out in front 18-7, but SM soon returned with Jim Shepardson scoring on a QB sneak to cap off a long fourth quarter drive.  With, but' th?ee minutes remaining in the , giine, Titan defensive 'teekfc^Mick Basset r«v covered a Ram' fumble to give San Marino the ball on their own 45. The Titans drove close to the Ram goal but were unable to sustain the offensive drive and gave up the ball with seconds left, dropping their third league bout after winning the first two against Bell Gardens and Duarte.

Will Play At Forum  By BRIAN OHLSON  Sixteen Huntington School eighth graders are going to play a basketball game. But this isn't just going to be a regular game, they are going to play on the floor of the fabulous Forum in Ingiewood.  It all started two years ago when Brian Ohlson (the organizer of the outing) went to see a Laker basketball game. He got there early and saw some second graders from Long Beach playing a preliminary game. Then at half-time they came out again. Brian thought it would be a good idea if he could get a few Huntington boys to go and play there. (Sixth graders then, eighth graders now.) So he sent a letter to Mr. J. K. Cooke, owner of the Lakers, to see if he could have a game there. When he got a letter back, Mr. Cooke said that he would put Brian's name on the two-year waiting list. So this year in October Brian received a letter saying that his name had reached the top of the list. A preliminary game has been scheduled for Sunday, November 9 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. as the game starts at 7. (Management pending they will play at. half-time too.)  They held, tryouts and' have Fnnufu I ifp chosen Í6 players. They have held five practices so far and plan to hold seven more. (One each day of the week.) The two team captains are Dirk Jones and Brian Ohlson. Dirk's team is the Lakers and Brian's team will represent the New York Knicks as that is the team the Lakers are playing that night.  Dirk's team consists of himself, Jeff Gill, Steve Lieber, Skip Lilliveck, Lloyd Ruland, Brad Jordan, Brad Farwell and Steve Burge.  Brian's team consists of himself, Todd Miller, Lloyd Dixon, John Flynn, Larry Samp, Bob Santoro, Tom Kurek and Roy McNeil.  The outing will surely be remembered by all boys for years to come.  HOMECOMING ROYALTY captured everyone's fancy Friday as Queen Kathy Sbicca and her Court composed of Wendy Pearl, senior princess (left) and Diane Fuller, junior princess reigned over the festivities. dave swibher photo  Pumpkins And Rams Share Homecoming Parade Spotlight  San Marino is a good town for parades.

Sponsored by the San Marino PTA Council and the Pasadena City College community service division, thejjectures will be given in the Tittle Theater of the High School beginning at 8 p.m.  Fire Loss Estimated At $3,500  According to reports, an estimated $3,500 worth of damage was the result of a roof fire at the Stanley Dicken residence on Saturday evening.  Responding to the call, members of the San Marino Fire Department arrived to find the roof of the two-story residence burning freely at the roof peak, with about one-quarter of the area in flames.  According to Fire Department personnel, a possible cause of the blaze was attributed to sparks from the fireplace.

Commercial Burglary Loss Totals $4,500  Police are following leads in last weekend's commercial burglary involving the majority of business offices located in the Booth Building at 475 Huntington drive. Total loss of all firms involved is estimated to exceed $4,500.  According to police reports, the suspects gained entry to the building Friday night or early Saturday morning by forcing open a crank-type window to one of the suites. They then went from office to office, forcing the doors with what is described as a 3/8-inch screwdriver or prying tool. Taking office equipment, cash and stamps, the suspects left the offices in varying states of disarray.  Of the 12 offices entered, greatest losses were reported at Richard L. Narver, insurance, $1,565 in office equipment; Ford Dealers Associates, $1,525 in office equipment; Mandler/Siegel CPA, $1,300 in office equipment; David V.

SAN MARINO TRIBUNI PHOTO  Two Accidents Hospitalize Motorcycle Riders  Two motorcycle - automobile collisions resulted in both motorcycle riders being taken to the hospital last week.  The first accident took place last Thursday morning at 7:50 a.m. Occurring just west of the Kenilworth avenue intersection on Huntington drive, the collision involved the vehicle driven by Ruth Ann Jackson of Bedford road and the motorcycle driven by Charles Jay Bradbury of Arcadia. Bradbury was taken to the hospital with abrasions.  On Friday evening just after 5 p.m. another auto-motorcycle accident took place at the intersection of Lombardy road and San Marino avenue. Thomas Agamenoni of Hornet road was hospitalized with hand injuries after a collision with the vehicle driven by Ruth McConnell of Monrovia.  'fair and warmer." And people in this town like parades.  Last Friday, Homecoming 1969, had all the usual ingredients: a warmer than usual October afternoon, people lined along the sidewalks and in the center strip with cameras, dogs, baby carriages and strollers. Perhaps the only real exception was that the traditional Titan blue and white gave way to a good amount of orange in honor of Halloween while pumpkins and images of battered Temple City Rams shared the spotlight as theme material.  The line of march left the high school a little after 3 p.m. following Grand Marshal Allen Laws, Mayor of San Marino, who shared his official parade car with Dr. Kenneth Bullock, high school principal.  Following came Homecoming Queen Kathy Sbicca and her court: Senior Princess Wendy Pearl and Junior Princess Diane Fuller riding in streamer-decked convertibles.  Floats  Then came the drill team, the Titan marching band, the pep commission, yell leaders, flag girls and the floats. First-place honors this year were captured by the Omegas' girls service club with their entry "The Spirit of Cinderella Titans Rides to Victory." Six members of the organization looking very much like Temple City Rams pulled an orange pumpkin down Huntington drive. Taking second place for a float called "Ole Titanitos" was the Spanish Club, and the Junior Class won third place with its entry, "The Great Pumpkin is on Our Side." ,Next week The» Tribune hopes to run pictures of many of the parade entries. It fyas a fine day for a parade, anfi\a grand parade it was.
