When our photographer was touring the East Coast last December he quite unexpectedly ran into a high-spirited country fair at Tolaga Bay, full of the traditional good-fellowship of the East Coast. The occasion was a school break-up and Christmas party, but no limit was set for the age of the children participating. The rollicking photograph on the cover of this issue was taken here, and also the attractive study reproduced below.
