Platoon after platoon of gay cavaliers swung into line, facing the royal presence as the procession tiled by this afternoon and, waving their plumed hats toward the earth, they cried, "Hail, all hail, Qaeen Anita!" And as they did so the people who lined the tribunes in the big sweeping circle of which the Queen's throne, with its spread ing yellow canopy was the center or key stone, took and answered the cheer, "Hail, all hail, Queen Anita!"
