Ul timately only about 150 riders, including girls and members of other outlaw clubs, got through, only to be met in Bass Lake by 100 heavily armed officers with dogs and all the latest electronictracking equipment. They were served with John Doe su m m onses, calling for them to appear in court to s h ow wh y they shouldn't be restrained from ever coming back, and they fou nd themselves confined to a small area of the resort and sealed off from the outside world by roadblocks and pa troIs.

SEND eyel NEWS TO VIET NAM Recentl y a spok es man for the usa told CYCLE NEWS t hat American servicemen in Vie t Nam would apprec iate having any e xtra copies of ou r fa vorit e n ewspaper to remind th em of home in tha t inhos pitab le land.

Since that time w e h ave packaged a n d sh ipped hundr eds of copies to the usa overseas, a nd shall start printing 1,000 ex tra cop ies each week for Viet Nam.

Our budget has been under some strain lately with the expenses of improving the newspaper and the added cost of shipping papers to Viet Nam is a little more than we can afford alone. Therefore we have established a fund to continue sending CYCLE NEWS to our servicemen in Viet Nam. Postage for a box of 200 papers is $1.90. We will continue to supply 1,000 extra pa pers a week, and package a nd add ress th em to the usa in the F ar East. The usa distributes them free of cost.

Who else but John R. could cross up while speeding in a straight line and get away with it? With the 13 Rebels scrambles at Prado Park cancelled by the weather, Perris Recreational Park was swamped by scrambles fans as well as by water. The Perris Valley M.C. did a respectable job of conducting the races despite the steadily increasing downpour. Members of American Legion Post 595, who were manning the corners in exchange for a P .V.M.C. donation to their favorite charity, deserve commendation for tending to business all day without complaint.
