May Queen to Launch
Eugene 'Noah’s’ Ark
When most boats are christened they slip back into the water,
but when the Junior Weekend queen-to-be breaks a bottle of milk
over the nose of the good ship “Norwind,” it will glide out into
Eugene Route F and trundle on down toward 'Willamette street.
Chet “Noah" Good of Eugene has worked for nearly eight years to
complete a sea-going sailboat, and now that it is finished he is having
trouble getting tne mgnway com
mission to grant him the right to
take it to the ocean via the high
ways of the state of Oregon.
With the prospects of his suc
cess in convincing the highway
commission of the practicability
of the trip on the up grade, the
Junior Weekend committee has
offered the loan of the not-yet
selected weekend queen to do the
honors at the christening. A local
dairy solved the rest of the prob
lem of christening by donating a
bottle of milk with which to
garnish the front of the vessel.
Buck Buchwach, promotion
chairman for the weekend, ex
plained today that the boat would
be decorated and a parade would
precede the christening.
