sands of people along Penn. Ave.
we located our seats which were on
the corners of Penn., Constitution
and 7th Streets. It was so cold wo
wrapped in blankets for the long
wait, having arrived at 11:00 o'clock
and the inauguration to take place
at noon. About 11:45 the President
and his party passed our stand on
the way to the Capital to take his
oath. From where we were sitting
we could see the President stand
In the distance. At 12.29 the Presi
dent and Vice-President took their
oaths of office and the President
gave his inaugural address and
the "Star Spangled Banner" was
sung by Phil Regan. Loud speakers
were set up so the people in the
bleachers could hear the ceremon
ies. The 21 gun salute .started the
inaugural Parade, wheh was 5$
minutes late. During this waiting
period some of the 690 planes, in
cluding B-36's and Jets roared
overhead as thousands craned their
, necks to watch the largest Air Ar
mada ever to pass over the Capital.
A Navy blimp flew lazily over and
around the Capital. Then the pa
rade was on, it began moving
slowly down Penn. Ave.
The Metropolitan Police were
first in line and as they slowly rode
down the street they spelled out
HARRY S. TRUMAN. Then the
Grand Marshalls came next in
cars of all sorts. The U. S. Army
Band came after the Marshalls. and
leading the President, Vice Presi
dent, Mrs. Truman and Margaret,
men carrying the 48 State's flags
and the cabinet members, all in
beautiful cars except the ones car
rying the flags. After this slowl
went by the United States Marine
Corps Band marched by. Then tbe
Marshalls, the U. S. Military Aca
demy and next came the Governors,
the lovely floats, bands, and many
Commissioners. The District of Col
umbia was first, Missouri and then
Kentucky, Deleware, Pennslyvania
and New Jersey. After these the
U. S. Naval Academy, then Georgia,
Mass. and Maryland and the U. S.
Coast Guard Academy, Virginia,
New York, Rhode Island, Vermont,
Tenn. and the U. S. Marine Aca
demy. Ohio, Louisiana, Indiana and
Wct Virginia brought up the Armyl
Ground Forces Band, the WAC
Company of the Army, Engineer
and Cavalry Regiment. Maine, Ark
ansas, Michigan, Florida, Texas and
Iowa came before the U. S. Navy
Band which brought on Calif. Miss,
and the Air Forces Band. Nevada,
Montana, Washington, Oklahoma,
New Mexico. Puerto Rico and tie
Virgin Islands were also represent
After all the states were repre
sented the Veterans organization,
with the Spanish War, Disabled,
Blind. Gold Star and Jewish war
veterans went slowly by. The small
bands, colored and white with their
cute majorettes, came prancing
along. They were the most colorful
of all the parade. Every different
band bad some cute steps they did.
The Boy Scouts were there too. Tbe
Chinese and Jewish floats came af
ter the Scouts and the Cole, Bros.
Calliope, the oldest in the U. S.
worked by steam and played the
Missouri Waltz.. This was the end
of the 7 mile parade, which is the
Llongest of all inaugural parades.'
As the Caliope rolled down Pent'.
Ave. thousands of people left their
stands and took to -the streets. Af
ter some time we made our way
through the crowds to our car and
I left for -home. We stopped on our
'way out on tbe south side of the
Potomac River opposite the Wash
ington Monument and watched the
Inaugural Fireworks -- climaxing
