Not that he and his two young 1 sons didn't welcome the greatest holiday in the Christian world, it's just that the memory of what happened during Easter week a year ago is still much too painful to permit the joyful light of celebration. It was April 7, 1970, and Beth Cyester, 28-year-old teachen at Huntington School, wife of seven years to Gill Cyester, and mother of sons Robb Gregory, 1, and Gill, Jr Donate $3,452 To Cancer Fund Along Chamber In Appeal For Grad Night The San Marino Chamber of Commerce has joined with other civic organizations in co-sponsoring the 1971 San Marino High School Grad Night party. In a letter mailed to all local business firms this week, Chamber president Dave Latham has asked the support of every San Marino merchant. For this year's all-night party, the Class of '71 has chosen the South Seas as the theme, and "Akahi No Makou I Hoomaka" (translation: "We've Only Just Begun") as the title. This exciting, safe graduation night is provided for the seniors by their parents, interested friends, and the community of San Marino. By transforming the high school gymnasiums and surrounding grounds into a fantastic ballroom and game area — along with providing dinner, dancing, games, entertainment, prizes, gifts, snacks and breakfast — the entire community cooperates in making Grad Night a memorable experience. San Marinans look forward each year to viewing the results of this transformation miracle, during the open house tours held during the two days prior to graduation. The 1971 Grad Night Committee, under the chairmanship of Mrs. Forest W. Foster, is again planning to welcome nearly 3,000 visitors. Those business firms contributing; to this worthwhile event will be identified by a colorful window' poster. The Chamber of Commerce urges that all San Marinans say "thank you" by patronizing these firms. Community Chest Falls The Huntington School PTA has announced the formation of a charitable fund which will be used to aid the families of teachers stricken by injury or illness. Called the Huntington School Disabled Teachers Fund, the idea is the brainchild of Mrs. Leroy C.

The concept that "charity begins at home" could have no better application, White observed. •Together' ''"Something like this could do as much to bring the community of San Marino together as it could to help the stricken," he told the Tribune. Five prominent San Marino citizens have agreed to serve as a board of trustees for the fund, supervising disbursements and promoting its worthiness.

City Officially In Rose Parade San Marino formally accepted an Invitation Monday to enter a float in the 83rd annual Rose Parade, January 1, 1972, in Pasadena. The offer was extended by Tournament of Roses President Virgil J. White on behalf of the Association's Executive Committee. Theme of the upcoming festival, which will feature 60 floats, 21 bands and 180 equestrians, is "The Joy of Music." San Marino entered its first parade in 1931 and has been a participant seven times. The city captured Sweepstakes honors in 1932 and won the Grand Marshal's Trophy in 1969 with the entry, "A Day at the Huntington library."

Jamie Fleming, a junior who says he wants to play football again next fall after competing two years ago as a freshman, led the Titan assault at Duarte with double victories of 10.0 in the 100-yard dash and 23.3 in the 220. The 10.0 time was the fastest of the year for Jamie, but the 23.3 was his slowest. Asked about that, he explained the Diparte track was in poor shape with the exception of the strip used for the 100-yard dash. Affected Times of other Titan runners were similarly affected. Mike Roffina waltzed to a 54.7 clocking in winning the 440, Dick Mapel to a 2:05.9 victory in thè 880, and Ivan Porta to a 4:55.8 triumph in the mile run. In the field events, Randy Freberg lept 21-7% to win the long jump by one-half inch. Jeff Eddy took the high jump at 6-0, and Bob Kaye muscled the shot-put 47-0 to outdistance all Falcons. The Titans may yet lodge a protest over the ruling in the 440 relay which gave the vie-tory to Duarte." Fleming was edged by the Falcon anchor man, according to the judges, but the Titans may have pic-tares which prove otherwise. The San Marino Bees beat Duarte, 48-47, and the Cees were defeated by DHS, 53V4-32VJ. Rio Hondo League prelims will be held next Tuesday afternoon at La Canada. u-1
