For the purpose of making the florml
parade on the opening day of the Com
mercial club and the Full Moon carnival
more Imposing and more beautiful than
It was last last year, George a Wright
has been designated by William Bchnorr,
In charge of the parade, to appoint a
large number of women to ssslst In the
work of managing the parade and serur
Ing car to be entered aa contestant.
Mr. Wright has named a committee of
thirty-eight women, with Mr. George
Oerner aa chairman. All hare consented
to art. making It certain that there will
be no lack of contestants for the prlsea
that will be offered.
Attorney Wright, In (electing the com
mittee, chose women who are skillful
Hutomoblliata, resourceful and original in
designing handsome things, and who
would naturally be the first to enter the
lista of contestants for the price honors.
Thus right at the start he assures thirty
eight entries, with a certainty that the
number will be multiplied, and the prob
ability that there will be 100 flower
wreathed cars to compete for the prises.
Ma ay Prises Offered.
This year there will be first, second and
third prises In all of the four divisions of
the parade. In the flower parade the
first prise wilt be tlOO, the second 150, and
the third f2.. A new method will be used
this year in judging. The judge will ail
be men and no Judge will know who the
others are. They will be out-of-town
men and they will make tbelr awarda
purely on the mertt of the decorations.
Kach will gather his data as the parade
passes. Bach will be given the oipor
tunlty to view It two or three times from
different angles. When all of the points
of all of the cars are considered, the
judges will go to a uestgnated place where
they will meet each other for the first
time. This will remove the slightest
chance for any suspicion of favoritism.
The purpose Is to make the floral parade
one of the really spectacular features of

rates, and that what was really dona was
to suggest a revision of rates In a part
of the territory. . So fur aa rates are con

believed that ultimately the decision will
