July 4th celebration Many events are planned "Thank You America," is the theme for this year's Independence Day celebration on the NATO base. Acti- vities on the 4th of July will in- clude a parade featuring grocery cart floats, a "Patriot" Fair at Hanger 885, games, sporting events, fireworks at noon, a crafts show at the Hobby Center and the US0/D0D en- tertainment group "Life." The "Mz USO" beauty contest will be held on Sunday at 7:30 p.m., and the winner will be in the 4th of July parade. The parade, which originates at the Commissary, will start at about 12:30 p.m. following the grocery cart decoration; competition and a brief fireworks display. Because of the limited amount of darkness, the fireworks will lean more toward noise and away from the bright col- ors usually associated with fire- works . The grocery cart competition will feature prizes in three categories: Theme, Originality and Color. The contestants will be allowed only 45 minutes to decorate the carts. Pre- planning and imagination will be re- quired. The contestants will push or pull the carts along the parade route from the Commissary to Hangar 885. The "Patriot Fair will feature booths manned by many local clubs and groups. The booths will be selling a variety of food and soft drinks, as well as providing games for all ages. The award winning group "Life", a Las Vegas type vari- ety show, will perform 1:30 p.m. at the "Patriot" Fair and 6:30 p.m. at Andrews Theater. There are numerous other events planned in conjunction with the 4th of July celebration. An Indepen- dence Day Golf tournament will tee off 10 a.m. at the golf course. You sign up at the base gym right up to tee off time, and there is no charge except for green fees. An Air Force vs. Navy Softball game begins at 6 p.m. July 4 and will be followed by the winner play- ing against the NATO all-star team at 7 p.m. Sign-up for the Air Force vs. Navy Softball game is at the base gym up to the day before the game.

Participants may elect to compete in the two or six mile contests. There will be open bowling at the Arctic Lanes on July 4. Stash your trash and help keep Iceland beautiful Trips in the country need little planning. But there's one plan that should be included—always; take sufficient plastic bags to carry all your trash away from the camp-site or picnic spot. Nothing is as disturbing in Ice- land's unspoiled nature as coming a- cross a thoughtless person's left- over cans, wrappers or "disposa- bles." They are not bio-degradable- ---they can remain an eyesore for years. Picking up trash for later dis- posal should be as much part of your routine as filling the tank with gas. People who leave litter give us all a bad name. Let's not be bad guests---stash that trash and leave Iceland the way you find it - unpol- luted. Bus vandalism See pages 4 & 5
