Brown High's ROTC Unit is jinxed.

For the fifth time the school's annual Sponsors' Day has been rained out. The cadet officers even tried to hold the event twice this year, but they finally gave up Wednesday.

The colorful parade was scheduled for the second period, the only hour in an otherwise sunny day that it had to rain.
