RODEO'S FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT
Committee Hears of Progress Made in Plans at Lunch Meeting
With advance ticket sales higher than in any previous year this far from show date, Gomer Lewis, in charge of the ticket sales committee of the Junior chamber of commerce, informed the rodeo executive committee yesterday that indications of the largest crowd in Tucson rodeo history prevailed.
The executive committee, in session in the Old Pueblo club, awarded the concession contract to Charles Fowler for $401, heard the reports of individual committees through chairmen and outlined last minute arrangements.
Parade Is Ready
Pete Waggoner, head of the parade committee, announced that all details for the parade were complete and the big western spectacle of the show would top all previous attempts. His report was backed up by that of Harold Wilson, in charge of music, who said the uniformed band of the University of Arizona will appear each day of the show as well as in the parade.
The Lions club, sponsors of the big hat-go western movement ever since 1928, have been retained in that capacity for the coming year, their representatives were informed yesterday, while the vigilante committee—a separate unit, made up largely of Jaycees will continue to support the western dress idea in conjunction with the Lions club.
The vigilantes, who were warned yesterday to confine their gunfire to daylight hours, will make daily apearances on the downtown streets, but care will be taken to confine the activities to such nature as to avoid offense to those not in sympathy with robust humor when applied to their person, Pete Waggoner said.
Representatives of the Indian tribes which will take part in the Indian day celebration reported on the progress of that phase of the annual show and outlined several new additions to their program.
