Beginning with the arrival of the zany Seafair Pirates, the 13th version of the 10-day maritime fete will open in Ballard on the 27th and end in a blaze of fireworks Sunday night, August 5, at Seward Park.

Further information on Page Seven will clue you in on the latest float developments. THEN THERE is the fast-stepping and snappy St. John's Girls Drill Team, clad in red and white. The 3S-plus grade school unit won a coveted excellence rating two summers ago. They will be competing with the best of them. Virginia Griswold is team captain. O Parade Catholics on parade And since we're on the subject of parades, these are some of the key people behind them all. Grand Marshql for the 10th consecutive summer is Col. Gar- nett H. Wilson, U. S. Army Retired, a member of Our Lady of Fatima Parish and a commerce and finance instructor at Seattle University. His efficient parades staff includes Fred Lorang, a fellow parishioners who is chief of staff; Frank Cola, transportation officer; Ed Milkent, division commander; Bruce Boozer, parade public information officer; and Maj. Frank M, Pats, army liaison. Also on the parade committee, derived from the Catholic War Veterans, are Tony Marina, and Frank MeLauglflin, as- sistant chiefs of staff; division commanders Gordon Banlmry and Dan Oliver; plus Boyd Sempel, Pat Kelly, John McGrath, Bill Maloney, Don DeVos and Joe Llanos. Keeping the "homefires burning" in the parades office at Fort Lawton are the Colonel's wife, Mrs. Durrett Wilson; and their two daughters, who are spending their vacation working for Seafair--Mrs. Jane Cooper of Shreveport, La., and Mrs. Nan allan of West Covina, Calif. Militant military militia If the Wilson camp is working overtime, the USO-NCCS Club staff at 1123 Sth Ave. is doing doubltime to keep up with the influx of visiting servicemen. A full week of activities has been seheduled at the US{), under the direction of Mrs. Mar- garet Clegg, with the assistance of Miss Marguerite Birming. ham. But don't worry, the biggest smiles will be worn by USO- NCCS Queen Alice Lorigan and the senior and junior hostesses. VIP section You can thank the 13 years of successful Seefair celebrations to Greater Seattle Incorporated's managing director, Walter Van Camp, a member of Assumption Parish. And retiring this year as King Neptune XH is restauranteur Walter F. Clark from St. Patrick's Parish. Meanwhile the new Prime Minister of the Sea/air Junior Royalty is a seventh grader from St. Catherine's School, Tim Jordan, 12, son of Don Jordan, 1110 N. E. 80th St. And where does SOME of the money come from in under- writing all these fun-filled days? The sale of Skipper Pins helps and leading the teen task force is Forest Ridge graduate Patti James of Redmond. She is 18, stands 5-2, weighs 92 pounds, and is a blonde. Well.informed nation If you haven't heard o SenfaJr. you must be full.tlme resident on the moon. The nation knows all about the mari. r  celebration because of the dynamic "big push" put on by the Greater Seattle News Bureau and Jack (Flash) Gordon Assumption Parish. The former SU Chieftain publicist and one of this eity's most respected lay lenders numbers among his staff Bill Sears, now the ChieW thletie publicity director who's covering all Seafair sports events; and Mild Sullivan, taking the rio and TV beat. Clowns are on Institution Seafair without the Seafair Clowns is like SU without basket. ball. The Seafair Clowns, now in their seventh year, is the world's most educated group of merrymakers. Sponsored by the SU Grad- notes Club, the lively bunch now numbers 60, including even some University of Washington grads. Court Jester is Timothy Hugh Ham Jr., who, of all things, is a mortician for Wiggen and Sons Funeral Home. He is a member of St. Joseph's Parish. Clown chairman is Roy McClure. Among the SU grads are Nick Grossi, Ray Sideritm, Harold Miller, John Brenner, Dave Duncan, Bob Diemert, Ken Ehlers, Jerry Gribble, Gene Brown, Ed Hunt Jr., John Flanagan, Dr. Tom Moore, AI Small, Frank Sullivan (the deputy prosecuting attorney), John LaRussa, Bob Prevost, Harry Woodiey, Ed Allen- bach.

Even 'Moslems' get in on the act And now we come to our favorite--the Filipino Youth Activi- ties of Seattle's Princess Drill Team and Cumbanchero Percuss- ioneers. Highlighting the Moslem culture of the Mores in the Philip- pines, this 51-member girls and boys marching unit, ranging in age from 12 to 16, come from various parishes and parochial schools in Seattle. The Sultana of the world's only Filipino American drill team is Roberts Pimentel, a sophomore at Holy Names Academy. The Ranis are Frances Castillano, an Immaculate High sophomore, and Angeles Quintero, from St. Peter's Parish. Soldan is Anthony Ogilvie Jr., an O'Dea senior; and Pasha is Donald Ogilvie, June graduate of Immaculate School. We'll be with the FYA "all the way" during Seafair. We hope you'll be enjoying these l0 days along with other Northwest citizens and World's Fair visiton. Eagle Scous will SEAHURST-- Two Eagle Scouts from St, Francis of Assisi Parish are looking forward to taking part in the Scout Ser,'ce Corps t the Seattle World s Fair from August 16 to 31. Th.ey are Douglas Moreland, 14, and Divid Gill, 16, both re- cipients of the coveted Eagle Scout badge Friday in special ceremonies in the parish school auditorium.

He has been chosen to the Order of the/'row. The pair, both Ad Altare Dei Medal winners, are members of Troop. No. 3S3 in the High- line diVxict. But several changes have been made in the Seefair format because of the expected World's Fair traffic congestion. For one thing, the traditional Grande and Torchlight Parades on 4th Avenue have been moved to 2nd Avenue. And the street dances and band concerts for tourists and the Navy fleet at 4th and Pike are begging for a new location because of the Monorail Terminal operating there. The Capitol Hill Festival of Flags parade has been trans- ferred to Bailard. BUT OTHERWISE, it's business as usual---only bigger and betterl As you can see, Seafair IS a community affair and the smiles of the citizens are never brighter and bigger than during the 10 days of maritime frolic. From one end of the city to the other, Seafair is the dominant spirit, characterized by salmon bakes, street dances, Wild West Days, and myriad tournaments covering a span of athletic competition. The biggest event will come this Saturday morning with the unveiling of the Grande Parade, themed around "Festivals, U.S.A." More than 50 floats, 40 bands and scores of marching units will be staged before an audience of a quarter million. Seafair spectacles: Familiar names grace pro football classic Familiar n a m e s and others new will headline the Seattle Seafair's pro- fessionai game of the World's Fair year when the Minne- sota Vikings and the San Fran- cisco 49ere clash Saturday, Aug. 11, in the University of Washington Stadium. The biggest name, naturally, will be former Husky All- American Hugh McElhenny, "The King." McElhenny, the oldest on the Viking roster at 33 and enter- ing his 12th season on the Na- tional Football League will pace the rushing attack. Products f r o m Catholic schools in the Minnesota list include veteran Grady Aider- man, tackle from Detroit, and rookies Don Krebs, end from Marquette; D e n n i s Penza, halfback from St. Norbert's; Steve Stunebreak- er, end from Detroit; and Tom Wagner, fullback from St. John's in Minnesota. Other "local" Minnesotans are Dean Derby, halfback from UW; Jack Morris, halfback, and George Shaw, quarterback, both from Oregon; and 3in Prestel, tackle from Idaho. *MINNESOTA, m a k i n g its first appearance in the annual pro-season Seafair game, is headed by general manager Bert Rose from LY. His pub- licist is John Thompson, also from UW. It will be the fifth appear- once for the 49ere in the eighth annual pro sp'actacle. The NFL fifth placer has four Catholic sehnol products as veterans, who are Ted Connolly, guard from Santa Clara and Tulsa; Frank Morze, center from Boston College; Bob St. Clair, tackle the University of San Fran- cisco and Tulsa; and Monty Stickles, end from Notre Dame. Thomas Aaron. end from Oregon State. is the only "lo- cal" veteran. The Greater Seattle, Inc., sponsored match will feature on the opposing coaching benches Norm Van Brocklin and Howard W. (Red) Hickey. Van Brocklin, former Uni- versity of Oregon great, was one of pro football's great all- time quarterbacks in his nine years with the Los Angeles Rams and three with the Phila- delphia Eagles. Hickey has produced three top team contenders for the 49ere in the NFL. Youth Day BERLIN, (NC) -- German- speaking young people, includ- ing those in West and East Germany and Austria, made Trinity Sunday a profession-of- faith day w i t h pilgrimages and c o m i n g devotions.

Notre Dame High School 13642 Riverside Dr. Sherman Oaks, Calif. I Aqua Follies sar swims like dream Lynn Edith Burke is a 19-year-old miss who looks like a dreamland swims like one. And this double Gold Medal winner of the 1960 Ram Olympics will swim her way into the hearts of Seattle fans as the featured attraction of the annual Aqua Follies July 26 to August 15 at the Green Lake Aqua Theatre. Miss Burke's athletic career includes no less than eight world backstroke records even before her sen- sational performance in the Olympics. As early as 1956, still a leggy, freckle-faced competitor, Miss Burke barely missed qualify- ing for the Olympic team by a few precious ticks of the timer's clock. It would have made her the youngest com- petitor ia U.S. Olympic history. THE DAUGHTER of Bob Burke, a swimmer of note him- self, Lynn took to the water at the age of two when she splashed into Long I s 1 a n d Sound near her parents' sum- mer cottage. She won her first race at the age of four, and at eight she was taking great delight in beating girls several years older in Metropolitan Amateur Athletic Union events. Following her near-miss in the '56 Olympic tryouts, Miss Burke's parents sent her to Portland, Ore., where she en- rolled in St. Mary's School. This enabled her to join the St. Mary's swimming team and also to compete for the Multnomah Athletic Club. The big turning point in her career came in 1959 when Lynn met Chris Van Saltza, another youngster destined for Olympic greatness. The girls became fast friends and Miss Burke moved to Los Gates, Califor. nia, in 1959 where she lived with the Van Saltza family. In 1960 the attractive blue- eyed miss reached her peak, winning both the national in- door and outdoor backstroke championships and repeating in the Canadian-American cham- pionships. The Burke name is ;written indelibly into the record book and it takes considerable space to tell the whole story. Still standing in 1962 were: W O R L D RECORDS -- 100-. yard backstroke (1:03.0); 100- meter backstroke (1: 09.0); 200- yard backstroke (2:16.2); 200- meter backstroke (2: 33.5) and backstroke leg of the 400-meter relay (1: 09.0). OLYMPIC RECORDS -- 100- m e t e r backstroke (1:09.0); backstroke leg of 400-meter relay (1:09.0).

The Japanese Ban Odori is a particularly appealing pageant which brings out thousands of camera fans to shoot the "Old World" customs and costumes this Saturday and Sunday. And the huge Chinese dragon comes out of hiding next Thursday when it wends its way through Seattle's International District as the hit of the Chinese Community Parade. Whatever their tastes--be they in sports, pageantry, music, dancing, art of even begonia raising--visitors will find some- thing of personal interest on the Seafair agenda. The Aqua Theater on Green Lake, has been the scene of stage and screen. Three star-studded stage shows, including names like Bob Hope and Gisele MacKenzie and Bert Parks, preceded Seafair. AI Sheehan's colorful Aqua Follies, opened Thursday and will continue through August 15. The spectacular water show employs the talents of Olympic Games diving and swimming stars plus gay and sparkling costumes, rich and talented voices and dozens of lovely mermaids and dancers. The Seafair capper is the 59th running of the Gold Cup Race Sunday, August 5, on Lake Washington. More than 20 boats will be seeking $35,000 in awards as welt as a claim to unlimited hydroplane racing's most coveted bauble. Then, as post-Seafair attraction, Greater Seattle, "Inc., will present its eighth annual pre-season National Football League game with the San Francisco 49ers meeting the Minnesota Vik- ings Saturday, August 11, in the University of Washington Sta- dium. RULING OVER the 1962 Seafair will be a mythical King Nep- tune who is surrounded by a bevy of pretty girls and a royal court. The new court will replace Neptune Rex XII Walter Clark, Queen Linda Juel and Prime Minister Bob Ladd. Seafair has pirates, clowns and thrills for young and old, which makes this Seattle festival America's outstanding outdoor attraction. The festival had its birth in the minds of a few men who believed that Seattle as a pleasure-boating center should be pointed up. They formed an organization known as Greater Seat- tle, Inc., to direct the Seafair and like most civic-sponsored events, it has as one of its prime aims the attracting of tourists to the city. While it accomplishes that aim, Seafair has the added attraction of really reflecting the city's maritime background and heritage. Mounties maintain championship tradition THERE IS REASON to smile at Seattle's Our Lady of (second row)head coach Joe Faccone, assistant coaches Bob Guadalupe Parish.

In the limelight were the Mounties' spartan team, which just went through the CYO league for seventh graders in championship fashion. Mount Virgin seven days before beat St. Bernadette's, 11-3, for the title at Broadway Playfield. Receiving at the banquet the leading hitter's trophy was Tom Couples, a 13-year-old right- header. The top pitcher batted .444 but his achievements on the mound were just as sensa- tional. Up to the title playoff match, Tom pitched 40 scoreless in- nings and six shut-outs for Joe Faccone's spartans. Three of them were no-hitters.
