06 10       Officers and committees of the Pitterle-Beaudoin Post No. 189, the American Legion today continued with their plans for the coming Fourth of July celebration at Riverside Park which for a time yesterday were threatened when Charles Brasch of the Brasch Bros. Shows announced he was canceling the contract he holds with the Legion for the celebration.  Brasch’s statement came after the common council Tuesday night failed to take definite action on the so-called “popcorn” controversy.  Mayor Robert P. White, when informed of the Brasch statement, arranged a hurried meeting which was held yesterday afternoon at the city hall in an effort to iron out the difficulties if possible.  As a result of the meeting it was announced that the Fourth of July celebration will go on as planned and that the coming Labor Day celebration, under auspices of the Watertown Central Labor Council in September, will also proceed as planned.  Brasch Bros. also holds the contract for that celebration.

Shows of Watertown has ahead of it one of the busiest seasons to date and this reflects what is generally regarded in amusement circles at present what is expected to be one of the biggest amusement years ever experienced in the United States.  Robert L. Brasch, North Water Street, made that announcement today after talking with people in the amusement business and representatives in Milwaukee at the recent Wisconsin Fair Association held at the Schroeder Hotel, in Chicago at the National Showmen’s Association convention and in Florida at the Florida State Fair in Tampa, from which he and his wife and their son, Robert L. Brasch, Jr., have just returned.  Mr. Brasch said that he found the greatest feeling of optimism and enthusiasm in amusement circles everywhere.  Leaders and show people in those fields look for a banner year and say everything points to it.
