THURSDAY, JULY 30 1959 .Jubilee -- (Continued from Page One) a demonstration fire run put on by members of the Beach Vol. Fire Dept., who announced the proceedings by ear-piercing blasts of the fire siren. Black smoke rolled skyward as firemen re- peated extinguished fires ignit- ed for tha purpose by the dif- ferent methods employed by the dept. ,A dinner for old-timers only, featured succulent locally grown turkeys, was served at the St. John's Hall, with the committee for this headed by Mrs. Natalie Adamson. All were presented with souvenirs, for remembranc- es. A parade, the like of which was never seen in Beach before, started at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, and the line of march continued for 16 blocks through down,ton Beach, when the 'first units in the parade reched the point of beginning three blocks of parade hadn't started yet. Rube Clark on a beautiful horse riding with the ease and grace of 1 who has spent most of his life in the saddle was the parade master. There were more horses and rid- ers in 'this parade than any seen in this state, many said. The floats were extraordinarily beautiful, and showed a great deal of ingenuity and skill had gone into their making. There were many comedians and novelCy displays in the par- ade. The local fire dept. had their equipment in the parable. Billings County Pioneer A Continuation of "'THE BADLANDS EDW'BOY" Established in 1883 ALICE L. LEBO, larmging Editor WAL,TiIR R.
