Every Fourth of July we celebrate brings us closer to the bicentennial of our independence—in the mileage of history you might say it's just around the corner. Well, and how do we feel at the ripe old age of 186? Old and apathetic? Sleek and fat? Ready to let others, take over for us? Of course we don’t. Our growth to the leadership of the Free World in less than two centuries is a miraculous chapter in the annals of man. Our youth is our triumph, acknowledged by na- tions whose history is as old as civilization. Indeed, our national destiny was apparent to foreign observers when we were still a. newcomer on the world scene. A visiting Frenchman, J. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur, who was a contem- porary of Jefferson, recognized it when he wrote, “Here individuals of all nations are melted into a new race of men, whose labor and posterity will one day cause great changes in the world." A new race of men, yes, and it came into being as free men on July 4, 1776. e'I‘he date is like a shaft of burning light on the calendar” our proudest secular holiday.

Sponsored by the Ballard Com- mercial. Club and under the com- mittee leadership of Johnny Mar- tin and Kon Eriksson, the Ballard entry will bear the imprint of Roger Ford. Ford, who designed the prize Winning Greater Seattle float in the recent Portland Rose Festival and 'the Washington float -=at the : Pasadena Tournament of Roses, has selected racing hydroplanes as his motif, 3 very appropriate theme in view of the prominence of Miss Bardahl in hydroplane racing. The float will feature replicas of three racing hydros in choppy waters and to produce the effect of raging waters and spectacular “rooster tails” will require place- ment of thousands and thousands of tiny blossoms. In view of the fact that the pro- duction is financed entirely by vol- untary contributions of Ballard businessmen with the boost from the Commercial Club, it is hoped that a number of nimble fingers will volunteer to help with the con- struction to produce the dual ef- fect of keeping the cost down and the prize winning potential of the Product up. .Anyone wishing to have a hand (literally) in this' praiseworthy Project is urged to call Kon Erik- S§0n.
