It was the original intention of the party to sail on south and settle in the milder Virginia climate. But when the the little storm-delayed vessel finally arrived off Cape Cod, they decided to land at once. The Pilgrim Fathers wrote in their "Journal." "We could not now take time for further search or considerations, our victuals being much spent, especially our beer." Through the courtesy of "VERS VAN 'T VAT/' Heineken's personnel paper, the above picture shows Heineken's participation at a parade held in Amsterdam dedicated to industry and commerce at the occasion of the opening of a super highway. This par ticipation won first prize and top honors. What would happen if this outfit paraded in your city?
