Parade Floats Will
Not Be Sold This Year
The twenty magnificent float that
maiV UP the electrical parade this year
are to be torn down at home this year In
stead of being sold or rented to another
town for a parade.
"Wo dqfo't want to cheapen the thing by
letting them go out of the dt'y this year,"
said Everett Buckingham, president of
the Ak-Sar-Ben board ot governors.
"Last year we sent them to Denver for
their big parado there, nnd when the
parade came off they advertised them as
coming from the Now York Hippodrome.
That ls all the credit we got for the work
manship on those floats. That ls all the
credit Omaha got So we have decided
to keep the floats at home. They are
standing outside the Den now and the
boys are cutting strips off them."
Mr. Buckingham say it looks like n
shame, but he says, "I beUeve we can
afford It It costs us a lot of money each
year to get up those, floats, but rather
than to sell them or rent thorn to another
town to use as Denver used them" last
yeAr, we will destroy them after we are
through with them.'" .
