Carnival Opens At Beach:
The famous Hampton Beach carnival for 1921 opened with a bang Monday and was witnessed by the largest crowd that ever witnessed the opening of such an event in the history of the beach. A crowd estimated by many to far exceed 100,000 people was on hand to enjoy the festivities and electrics, autos and trains were jammed to the limit.
Probably never before was the crowd in more jovial spirits. Because of the inconvenience caused by the fire, stores were packed, and many more were without service until noon, when a double force of help was put on. People early in the morning made the best of the situation and all inconveniences were remedied by afternoon. The regular program, with no semblance of a slip up was followed through.
Airplane exhibition flights took up the early part of the day with a special display of Japanese fireworks at noon time. A conference held by the N. E. O. P. order took place in the Casino theatre, and many guests were present. In the early part of the afternoon, a band concert entertained a large gathering, while a number estimated at 8,000 watched a rather wretched ball game between the Hampton Beach and Salisbury Beach nines. The former team won by a score of 20-7. Later on in the afternoon a stage show free to all was given and a special attraction in the form of a bicycle rider added considerable more thrills.
One of the largest crowds to witness attractions on Labor day night had the pleasure of being on hand when the confetti battles started on the veranda of the Casino. Stage shows and Van Norman, the bike rider, again performed. Fireworks created an untiring interest during the latter part of the evening, while dancing formed a prominent feature.
Tuesday was Children's Day; Wednesday, Farmers' Day. Today is Governor's Day and the program is a fine one.
At 12:30 o'clock a reception will be tendered the invited guests at the Pelham Hotel and luncheon will be served at one o'clock. At three o'clock there will be speaking from the band stand in front of the Casino. The speakers will include both governors, Senator Moses and President Hetzel. They will be introduced by the chairman of the reception committee, Lewis Perkins of Hampton. The other members of the reception committee are Henry Ford, president of the Board of Trade; J. Frank James of Lawrence, former president of the board; Fr. P. J. Scott of Hampton, and Charles Greenman of Hampton, the president of the electric railroad that is run by the town of Hampton, and George Ashworth, a well known hotel man who is interested in state and civic affairs.
Following the speaking the invited guests will be escorted to a special box on the Casino veranda where they will view the stage show, the thrilling ride of "Dare Devil" Van Norman and listen to the music of the Salem Cadet band. It is expected that many of the party will stay to see the wonderful display of fireworks that has been arranged in their honor for the evening.
"Governors' Day" of the Hampton Beach Carnival promises to eclipse any similar occasion for years.
Friday will be Coast Guard Day, and Saturday, Coronation Day. On Sunday Old Home Day will take place.
Several features outside of the regular program are sandwiched in, and many new features are being added daily.
The contestants in the Carnival Queen and King contest are putting their best efforts into the sale of the official program. The great crowds of the past several days have spurred them on to a maximum of effort and it now looks as if the Board of Trade would net a very substantial sum through the sale of these official programs. The young lady who turns in the most money resultant from the sale of programs will be named "Queen of the Carnival" and the young man who heads the list in the matter of sales will be made the "Carnival King" Both the Queen and the King will be crowned with appropriate ceremony on the night of Saturday the 10th and will be otherwise rewarded for their efforts.
George Leavitt of North Hampton better known as "Cy, the Rube Bike Rider," rode his old fashioned 54-inch bicycle over 300 miles in his recent trip advertising the Hampton Beach Carnival. Leavitt also covered almost 200 miles by train, making a total mileage of about 500 miles which he covered in three weeks. He visited every city in the state of New Hampshire and covered twenty of the principal Massachusetts cities. The advertising stunt was favorably commented upon and the representative of the Board of Trade in this unique field of advertising was courteously received in every city and town which he visited. Leavitt estimated that over 600,000 people saw him and read his advertisements during the course of his 500 mile trip.
N. E. O. P. Outing:
Hampton Beach witnessed the first annual outing of the New England Order of Protection Monday, and one of the greatest throngs ever assembled at this resort greeted the order.
The outing was held by the councils from Portsmouth, Exeter and Dover, and the Manchester order was guest. Fully one hundred guests from Manchester enjoyed the festivities mapped out by the chairman of the outing, Mr. Green of Portsmouth, and the program was carried out without the semblance of a mishap.
The outing officially started at 11 a. m., when the members congregated in the Casino theatre. Chairman Green gave an interesting outline of the program and a talk in the interest of the order. Following the talk, a motion was made to choose outing officials, and the following were elected: Mr. Green of Portsmouth, the pres.; Edson B. Ramsdell, of Manchester, vice pres.; and Mrs. Sherman, of Dover, secretary. Grand Warden George Healy of Manchester gave an interesting talk on the entertainment and the manner in which it was carried out, and this was followed by a vote of thanks.
The members also voted to extend their sympathies to Mrs. George G. Peterson, of Manchester, whose husband dropped dead in N. E. O. P. hall while working for the order's interest. Mr. Peterson was one of the order's most loyal members.
The committee on the sports for the day consisted of Mr. Sherman, of Dover, and Mrs. Delia Dodge. Chairman Green selected the committees. Cheers composed by Mrs. Helen Ramsdell of the Star Lodge, in Manchester, were given, and a song also composed by Mrs. Ramsdell, was dedicated to George Healy, grand warden of New Hampshire, and vice-warden of New England.
As the outing was announced as an annual event, Mrs. Morrill of Laconia was elected chairman for the next summer event. Those on the publicity committee are to be Mr. Sherman of Portsmouth; Mrs. Williams of Dover, with the chairman being Mrs. E. B. Ramsdell of Manchester, who was given the authority to appoint any other member of the order to help in event of necessity.
