We, the staff, have striven for the high
ideal of giving you J. C. students some-
thing which will provide you with greater
enjoyment as the years pass. This door-
way was chosen as a symbol of our
school, and was portrayed in the morn-
ing, at noon, and in the evening, to rep-
resent the theme of our book. More pic-
tures ana less reading matter were used
in our effort to please. Co-operation of
staff, school officials, and photographers
make up the JC of 1958, one that it is
hoped will be long remembered.

of the School
a Student's Life
Since morning seems to be more the
time for real study, we have here selected
the honor student of the class of 58,
JOHN HOUBOLT. to represent that
section of our book. For afternoon, sport
life predominates all other activities and
so, RAY McGRATH, as the outstanding
athlete, was chosen. Social life takes up
a College student s evenings, and so by
popular vote EILEEN RODGERS was
made representative for the last section
devoted to social activities. To these
three students, the staff gives salutations,
and herebv dedicates this book.

Introducing The Class of Nineteen Thirty-Eight
In the fall of 1956. approximately one hundred
and fifty students, realizing the unmistakable
value of a college career, and desirous of extend-
ing their education beyond the value of high
school training, entered J. J. C. to form the fresh-
man class. During the ensuing school year, this
intelligent and eager student group associating
with one of the most progressive sophomore
classes in the history of J. J. C. and under the
capable guidance of a dean and faculty blessed
with a sympathetic understanding and a gentle
tolerance, endowed with an affectionate interest
in and liberal attitude toward the student body,
became accustomed to, and endeavored to serve
J. J. C. Their leaders during the first year were
George Wellman, H. Robinson, and Robert
Owens, students whose high school records and
whose obvious and expressed interest in the
affairs of J. J C. more than justified their selec-
tion as officers of this class. During the past year
the class has been guided by the equally capable
hands of Robert Owens, Clarence Rimlce, and
Phyllis Anderson. Robert Owens, president of
the sophomore class, secretary of the freshman
class and a member of the tennis team for the
past two years, achieved fame in recognition of
his outstanding dramatic ability. In addition
to playing the leading role in both college plays,
he participated in numerous productions under
the direction of Mr. Zimmerman and the music
department. Clarence Rimke, vice-president of
the sophomore class and president of the CoIIege-
Y Club, was a member of the championship de-
bate team. He was also a member of the base-
ball team and was active in the affairs of the
Phyllis Anderson, popular and pretty young
secretary of the sophomore class, was one of the
leaders of \V. A. A. Phyllis was also a member
of the art class and her choral activities received
no little comment.
Under the leadership of these officers and
other outstanding sophomore students, the sopho-
more class aspired to accomplish and to realize
those tasks and events which would leave mem-
ories of achievements comparable to those of
any preceding class. This aspiring attitude and
tireless effort of the sophomore class, combined
with the unselfish and invaluable assistance of a
willing freshman class, resulted in many happy
and successful events.

Introducing The Class of Nineteen Thirty-Eight
(Continued from Page Ten)
The nucleus of Coach Wills conference and
state championship basketball team was two
sophomores who attained all-state honors. Sim-
ilarly, several sophomores were influential factors
in gaining the Illinois State Junior College base-
ball championship. It was under the inspiring
and capable leadership of Coach W. L. Myers
that four sophomores captured the state debate
title. The College Club, which presented such
varied and entertaining programs, was directed
by sophomores. To the sophomore leaders of the
W. A. A. and the Co-Ed Recreational Board we
are deeply indebted for the unusual entertainment
provided during the year. The box social and
the various sports night parties have no precedent
in the history of J. J. C. The Student Council,
whose officers were sophomores, carried on suc-
cessfully the work of the previous progressive
Student Council and contributed greatly to the
welfare of the student body. It was under the
direction of this council that our many successful
dances and mixers and social events were carried
on. The abilities of the many students who co-
operated so successfully and so willingly to make
the JC possible were directed by a staff headed
by capable and responsible sophomore students.
Thus we submit, respectfully, these accomplish-
ments as a testimonial to the success of our aspira-
tions, aspirations which have been so carefully
fostered by an affectionate and understanding
May these accomplishments serve as the basis
and the source of inspiration of future and
greater achievements. To those fortunate indi-
viduals who shall continue their education in in-
stitutions of higher learning, may the ideals and
lessons of J. J. C. always make them strive for the
To those of our less fortunate friends who shall
conclude their college education in a short time,
may we say in this hour of achievement: We
learn not for school but for life.

Introducing the Class of Nineteen Thirty-Nine
RICHARD HUTCHINSON was elected president of the
freshman collegians this year. His personality and scholastic
achievement assured his success in this office.
RAY SLOUF was secretary of the Student Council and was
one of our most promising tennis prospects.
ROBERT DOWSE was not only well liked by the student
body but played an important part on the State Championship
Probably tbe greatest contribution which the
Freshman Class made to the Junior College this
year was a group of fine basketball players. Head-
ing them was Bob Archambeault who was chosen
on the all-state team. The others were Phil
Meyers. Bob Dowse. Bunny Fornango, Ted
Krumpoch. Bob Layfield, Chester Cooper, and
Roger Rush. Stopping at nothing they fought
until they won the state tournament. Most of
them will undoubtedly be back for the season
next year, and students are already looking for-
ward to even faster games than they witnessed
Scattered throughout the class are also many
students of unusual talents. Outstanding among
these are Melvin Nyman and James Aseltine.
Both are excellent pianists and have commanded
considerable attention. Mr. Nyman, a citizen of
I.ockport, entertained at both high school and
junior college assemblies. Mr. Aseltine played
lor the College Club on March 7.
Another popular pianist was Ray Hendrix.
However, Ray was more devoted to popular
music. He also played at the college assembly.
Still another freshman musician was Arthur
Witkin, present director of the high school Mili-
tary Band. Art also had an up-and-coming
orchestra which played at the JC Social Hour
this last semester.
On March 18 the Freshmen held their annual
dance in the girls gym. The committee con-
sisted of George Calvin, Mary Elizabeth Scheidt,
Jayne Clark, Ted Barklow, Mary Frances
Faulkner, and Richard Hutchinson. This year
the dance was a ' Shamrock Shag, the decora-
tions being predominantly Irish. They consisted
of large white posters with green shamrocks and
Irish pipes. Supplementing these were large
shamrocks on a background of white lattice work
at either end of the gym and back of the nine-
piece orchestra. The favors were white clay pipes
and green carnations. Chaperons were Dr. and
Mrs. George Young and Mr. and Mrs. I. D.
Thus we see that the Freshman Class has
taken a prominent place in the college activities,
and we hope that they may continue to do so as
the Sophomore Class next year.

foster ana develop the Lest interests of the
students and the school. President Pershing
Burgard and faculty adviser, Mr. R. L. Frisbie,
led the council in forming a Co-ed Recreation
Board and making plans for a recreation hall.
The council took over the selling of the J. J. C.
play tickets and state tournament tickets, as well
as sponsored all school dances in the past year.
Chamber of Commerce
The Joliet Junior College Chamber of Com-
merce is a recent organization. It has only been
established for two years and was first started by
Miss Fidelia Van Antwerp. Each year the club
was to visit various points of interest in Joliet such
as the American Institute of Laundry. This past
year each member of the club, whose chairman
is James Reeves, wrote a letter for the contest
sponsored by the Cregg Company.

The College Club was the only club that had
the distinction of having every student for a
member. Sponsored by Mr. E. L. Mayo, the club
met the first Monday of every month in the music
room. Ernest Lundin, president, assisted by
Jack Kauffman and Geraldine Wright, obtained
many fine programs. Among them were the
Lombard Players; Victor Griffin, Australian
lecturer; and Davies Light Opera Company; and
Russ Hoogerhyde, world renowned archer.
The Joliet Junior College debating team,
coached by Mr. W. L. Myers, for the fourth
consecutive year won the state tournament. The
team composed of Orrin Long, Pershing Burgard,
Clark Mottinger, and Clarence Rimke debated
on the subject, Bicameralism versus unicamera-
lism. At the end of the season debate keys were
given. They were the only awards of this kind
offered in Junior College and were very much to

Every year, for the past nineteen years, the
students of J. J. C. have presented a play under
the able direction of Miss Lena Dickinson. The
proceeds of the productions are donated to the
College Loan Fund.
Charley s Aunt, " a hilarious comedy by
Brandon Thomas, was the play chosen by Miss
Dickinson for this year. It centered around the
emotional difficulties of three college students at
Oxford. One of the boys was forced by circum-
stances to masquerade at Charley s Aunt and
the resulting complications provided the audience
with a laugh every other line.
The Chocolate Soldier

direction of Miss Christine Bunch, faculty
sponsor; Mary Lois Whiteman. editor: and
Eileen Rodgers, co-editor. In order to help
finance the book George Wellman. business
manager, obtained concessions at the Hawaiian
basketball games and the State Tournament, as
well as sponsored a Social Hour, the selling of
JC buttons for the tournament, and a popcorn
sale. In order to create interest, an original play
was presented at a college assembly.
A new organization of J. J. C. this year was
the Co-ed Board. It was composed of six col-
legians and Miss Elsie Braun. Mrs. Phoebe
Kirby, Mr. N. V. Kline, and Mr. A. L. Slette.
The purpose of the board was to supervise co-
educational sports. A few attempts were made
at this last year under the direction of the
W. A. A., but this year it was decided to make
co-educational sports parties a regular project.
The board sponsored four parties this year,
each of which was greatly enjoyed by the col-
legians. The first of these was the Sports
Spree,' a rotative sports party. With winter and
skating and bobbing, came the Snow Party at
the Woodruff Stables. Next, the Co-ed Board
turned the calendar back a few years and gave a
box social. The last was given at the Armory.

Rimke, president the second semester, dinner
meetings were held twice a month; while in
early fall and spring, outdoor meetings were held.

and it is under the leadership of these five women that the club has been able to
live up to its reputation during the year '37 and 38. Under the very capable
leadership of the president. Jean Stansbury, the members have worked together
with enthusiasm and co-operation. Dependable Margaret Cox is the vice-president,
and she is always full of interest and ideas. The secretary and treasurer is tiny
Eileen Rodgers. She has an amazing amount of efficiency stored up in her small
person. It is Georgia Perry, Head of sports, who lends pep and vim to the club.
She is active in every \V. A. A. sport and excels in all of them. Mrs. Phoebe Kirby
is the guiding and supporting hand behind these officers and all \Y. A. A. girls
look to her with admiration and appreciation.
With the co-operation of the officers and other members, the main project —

Along with spring fever comes that yearning
for a good game of tennis. Its action and com-
petition appeal to the sporting instinct. lis
elements of surprise, of suspense, and of risks
add to the fun of playing. Early practices in the
gym were devoted to technique and serving, and
later the girls played outdoors.
With the first warm days of spring came a
desire to get out of doors. The bright sun and
warm breezes beckoned us to the baseball
diamond. Baseball was the it sport now.
The thrill a girl received in hitting a homer
made baseball one of \'V. A. A.'s favorite sports.
The college teams competed against each other.
Hockey, one of the most exciting of outdoor
team games, is the first fall sport. It's a thrilling
game — dribbling, driving, and passing down the

The third year-round sport included in Co-ed
Recreation is badminton. This sport was offered
by the W. A. A. last year for the first time, and
it has become increasingly popular. A ladder
tournament was played by the girls in the fall
and a mixed tournament took place in the spring.
Twenty-nineteen, twenty-up, game. This is
typical of the competition which the girls gave
the boys in ping pong. Every Co-ed night
found the ping pong tables taken, and then some.
This game was played also during free periods
every day of the week. A mixed tournament was
played in the spring.
This year the \V. A. A. added two new activ-
ities to its program. The first of these was bowl-
ing, a year-round sport. It proved to be one of
the most popular mixed sports of the year. Bowl-

Swimming is an ideal exercise, and as

One of the most enjoyable activities
offered by the W. A. A. is horseback
riding. During the fall and spring, the
College Riding Club, consisting of about
twelve girls, rode the paths at the Wood-
ruff Stables. Perfect weather and occa-
sional suppers following the rides added
to the delight of being an active member.

The Season's Record
The Wolves won their first eleven games in-
cluding such prominent opponents as St. Viator,
Concordia of Milwaukee, Muskegon, Hanover,
and Morton, all four-year colleges with the excep-
tion of Morton. The first defeat was suffered at
the hands of LaGrange, Joliet s traditional rival.
Joliet completed a successful season, winning
sixteen games and losing seven, which is a re-
markable record considering the caliber of the

Joliet's victory over St. Viator, 59-56. on the
local floor was one of the most spectacular games
of the year, establishing Joliet as one of the best
teams in Illinois. Concordia, another four-year
school, bowed to the Wolves in an overtime
game, 42-39. Later the Wolves repeated their
victory over Concordia, 44-40, the first time that
either team had won both games in one season.
The highlight came on January 27th and 28th,
when the Willsmen met the Hawaiian All-Stars
in a two-game series, with the Hawaiians win
ning the first game, 46-44. and the Willsmen
the second night trouncing them, 49-56. before
a capacity crowd. The Hawaiians' ability as ball
handlers provided thrills both nights. Their
accurate shooting and passing ability surpassed
any previously seen in Joliet.

At Joliet Tournament
State Basketball Tournament
"State Champions of 1938' was the title conferred upon Coach Wills and
his junior college team at the end of the 1937-1958 basketball season. It was
the fourth time in six years that such a title had been brought to the Joliet Junior
College. Finishing with last minute drives in both of their earlier games of the
tournament, the Willsmen entered the finals against the strong Wright Junior
College and emerged victorious by the score of 33-31.
The Wolves entered the tournament seriously weakened by sickness. Every
one of the regulars had been sick during tournament week, and physically they
were not in the pink of condition. 1 hey played their lirst game against Spring-
field Junior College and won by the close score of 36-34. Behind seven points,
with but minutes remaining, they put on a final drive started by Phil Meyers
which brought them victory. Fornango led the scoring for the victors with
ten points. The Wolves entered the semi-finals against a strong LaGrange
quintet. Previously during the season the Wolves had won one and lost
one game against LaGrange. Traditional rivals, both schools wanted a victory
and the contest was the hardest and closest game of the tournament. The game
got off to a fast start with LaGrange opening the scoring and gaining a lead which
they held most of the game. With Klindera and Henning leading the scoring
LaGrange led at half time 25-19. The Willsmen opened the scoring the second
half, but LaGrange pulled away. With eleven minutes remaining LaGrange led
32-21. The Wolves then started their customary last minute drive which ended
only when victory was theirs. Archambeault led Joliet s rally with four consecutive
baskets, putting the game into the only overtime one of the tournament. Joliet
scored seven points against one for LaGrange, and the game ended with the
Wolves ahead 47-41. Bob Dowse proved worthy of his name as a defense star
by holding Klindera. LaGrange s ace forward and all-state selection, scoreless the
second half. McGrath took scoring honors for the evening with fourteen points.
Joliet entered the finals against the reputable Wright team who eliminated the
favored pre-tournament Morton College of Cicero in the semi-finals by the score
of 58-27. Wright started a scoring spree which netted them eight points before
Joliet scored. McGrath opened the scoring for Joliet. and Knowles followed with
two baskets to make the score 8-6. The teams fought on even terms throughout the
first half with Joliet leading at half time 19-18. The Wolves pulled away in the
second half and held a comfortable lead to the end of the game.
Besides winning the state title Joliet placed three men on the all-state team.
The Wolves who received this honor were Captain Ray McGrath, all-state guard
for the second consecutive year; Bill Knowles, Joliet s leading scorer, placed at
the forward post; Bob Archambeault at the other forward position. Other all-
state selections were Klindera of LaGrange. forward; Powers of Thornton, center;
Stromeillo of Morton and Danakus of Wright at the guard positions.

and championship which they brought to Joliet.

Conference championship title.
The outfield, the least of the coach's worries, had three re-
turning veterans. I he pitching situation was taken care of,
although a few good relief hurlers had to be developed. Wills-
chief concern was the infield and catcher's position. Not many
candidates heeded the "call to arms." but Wills did succeed in
picking the necessary players.

occasions. Without being fully prepared the Wolves invaded

On April 22 the Wolves accomplished their first victory,
hammering out an 18-12 decision over DeKalb. The boys of
the Purple and White lost a tough game to Chicago Normal on
April 26. a 9-7 victory for the Chicagoans.
In their first home and conference game Joliet won from
Lisle, 6-5. However, they lost lo Wright 8-3. The next day

Proms and Parties Usher In Social Season
Rotative Sports Spree
Hi, Jean! When did you come home,
and why? Last night for Spring vacation!
Gosh, we won't be out for about two weeks
yet. But I don't care. We've had so much
fun here at school this year. Bigger and
better limes, more dances, sport parties and
mixers. Why, we had a mixer the first
Friday night after school started last fall.
It was a banquet first with games and danc-
ing afterwards. We had lots of fun. Then
October 8. we had a Sports' Spree. We all
went without dates, and they put us on
mixed teams, and we played about twenty
different games, with a different team each
time. And the winning team got prizes,
and we all had refreshments. The W. A. A.
Co-ed Recreation board sponsored it. and
they certainly did a good job.
Then in November the W. A. A. gave a
dance. Perhaps you'd like to see where
we have our dances, so let s go down to the
gym. . . book! Doesn't it offer a lot of possi-
bilities for decorating? Our first college
dance this year was the W. A. A. Spooks
gym was decorated spookily with black cats,
witches, goblins, and all sorts of haunting
things. The lights were low and the whole
effect was ghostly, but festive, if you know
what I mean. The programs were black
owl booklets, and they were the cutest
things. The yearbook photographer took
some pictures that you might like to see.
There are some, too, that were taken at the
College Formal, November 26, which is the
most important dance of all on the school
calendar. This year the gym was made
lovely with a low ceiling of cherry blossoms,
and Japanese lanterns were suspended from
the boughs of blossoms. It transported
THE 1958 JC
SENIORS MAKE MERRY
everyone into a Japanese formal garden.
The programs were little red, gold, and
green oriental fans. The effect was made
even more beautiful by tbe gorgeous eve-
ning dresses which appeared so graceful
and charming. I ersliing Burgard and Jane
? ? ? lead the grand march.
In December we bad a snow party which
was presented by the Co-ed Recreational
Board in December, 1938, at tbe Woodruff
riding stables. There were bobbing, sleigh-
ing, skating, skiing, ski-joring, and snow-
balling for all. Cocoa and a great variety
of doughnuts were served and heartily en-
joyed by everyone. Mr. and Mrs. W. L.
Kirby were tbe chaperons.
In February, we had something really
new and different, a Silhouette Box Social.
This occurred February 21. in the girls' gym
and was presented by the Co-ed Recrea-
tional Board. Old-fashioned games such
as George Washington s Proposal to
Martha." "Spin the Platter," "Wink." etc.,
were played. Then the group of about one
hundred and twenty was divided into teams
of eight, and relays were run, after which
prizes were presented to the winning teams.
The refreshments were served in a very
novel way. Girls donned long, nondescript
robes and bathing caps and walked slowly
before a screen backed by white light which
showed to the male audience only the sil-
houettes of the lovelier sex. The boys then
bid on the girls silhouettes and when pre-
sented their girls, received with them a box
of delicious food covered by beautiful wrap-
pings. The girls then ate with their lucky
bidders and 7-Up was served to all. After
the refreshments the public address system
was booked up and the rest of the evening-
was spent in dancing.
Between semesters we really had fun.
Four days of vacation and no homework, so

With A Hey-Nonny-no
on January 19, we had our annual Costume
Ball. Everyone always looks so funny that
all have a wonderful time, Ruth Orhesen
and Clarke Mottinger won the prize for the
most original costumes, as everyone had
suspected they would. Here are some pic-
tures taken at the dance. See, there s one of
Ruth and Clarke.
Then on March 18, the Freshmen gave a
dance, the Shamrock Shag, and since it was
the day after St. Patrick's day, the decora-
tions were all Irish, with shamrocks and
pipes all over. The programs were green,
and the boys were given little white clay
pipes, which the girls got later. The orches-
tra was fine, and it was a lovely dance.
The Skating Party was given April 9.
1958, at the Armory on Cass Street and
sponsored by the Co-ed Board. Varied
programs were presented thruout the eve-
ning with Couples Only, Trios Only.
Ladies Only, and Gentlemen s Tag.
Pop and ice cream were sold at a concession
booth. Almost one hundred and fifty
people enjoyed the games between the hours
of seven-thirty and ten-thirty.
Other dances scheduled were the
\V. A. A. spring dance April 50, and we
wound up with our most important, most
anticipated spring dance, the Spring
Formal, May 20. Of course we always
really complete the year with the College
Picnic, which was May 28, and the Junior
College Banquet, May 50. It s too bad you
can t be here for some of our fun, but I'll
lei I you all about it when I see you this
summer. You'll probably be having a lot of
good times at your school, too, so we II have
some nice, long chats when we meet again.

Question: What, to you, was the most important, most exciting, cr
most interesting event during the past school year?
fames Aseltine. Freshman: "September 13 was a very important date
in my life, as it marked my entrance into college, which I have antici-
pated eagerly in years gone by."
foe College: "Gosh, September 1-1 started all the (lasses, homework.
Peggy Body, Freshman: "The Mixer banquet and dance was the first
Friday night after school started. It was supposed to gel everybody
mixed, and oh boy. it sure did. I've had fun ever since!"
Myra "Ma" Mather, Dean: "I believe that one of the most educational
events of the year was the assembly September 27, at which Mrs.
Wood lectured on Social Hygiene and Social Problems."
Jack Kauffman, Sophomore and Politician: "The Primary elections
took place September 28, and I began my political career as campaign
manager for all my pals. (P. S.: They all were nominated, too.)"
Ye Olde Ballot Box Staffers: The Freshman and Sophomore Class
elections were September 30. We easily elected Owens, Rimke, and
Phyllis Anderson for the sophomore officers, and Hutchinson, Slouf,
and Dowse for the freshmen. We can't decide, though, whether the
class elections were the most fun or not, because we certainly handled
the College Club elections nicely, electing Lundin, Kauffman, and
Cerry Wright. Elections are our meat."
Marg Cox, Sophomore: "The Sports Spree on October S was a mixer
of the most mixy mixers, and everyone had a grand time."
Squeaky Stout, Sophomore and Student: "The five events from
which we college students were able to benefit were held at weekly
intervals. The first, October 15. was "The Point of View," by Mr.
Tipson who is an English lecturer. At the second, October 21
Leslie B. Mass from New York City told about "Ferment in the
Orient." Then on October 28, Allen D. Albert from Paris. Illinois,
spoke on "Can Any Nation Live Unto Itself?" On November 5,
Mr. Ethan Colton, from Upper Montclair, N. J„ used as his subject.
Behind European Headlines." Mr. Charles A. Wells, of New York
City, concluded this series of lectures with "America's Place in the
Pershing Burgard: "I liked the college play "Charley's Aunt" because
we had so much fun at rehearsals-and it was a darned good play,
Phyllis Anderson: "I enjoyed the College Formal. November 26th. be-
cause everyone had such a grand time, and the committee felt that
their efforts really were appreciated."

George WeKman: We really had some keen basketball games this
year. There were twenty-six games between December ana February
26. 1 he best one was on February 26, the last day of the tournament,
when we beat Wright 47 to 57 to win the State Tournament. Boy,
that sure was great.
Bob Owens: That skit we gave for the yearbook December 16 had its
good points. We said some things there that would never have got
Ed Perry, Philosopher: "Say. you know that Snow Party, December
10th, was really swell. More things like that is what this school
needs, take it from me."
Clarence Rimke, Benefactor of Mankind: The New Year s Eve Dance
was certainly a fine thing. It helped a lot of people to have a good
time, and, also, it kept them out of mischief. You know, I always
enjoy upholding the morals of youth.
Ernest Lundin, Singer: Those opera singers who sang at College
Club, January 3, were really good. I certainly enjoyed every minute
of the time I spent listening to them.
Johnny Houbolt, Brain Truster: Ha! Those three days of exams,
January 14, 17, and 18! They were something!"
Dick McHugh, Funster: Christmas vacation, betvveen-semester vaca-
tion, spring vacation, and any other holidays are what I enjoyed most
throughout the school year.
Ruth Orbesen, Designer: "I liked the Costume Ball, January 20. It
was so much fun to think of an original costume,
looked so funny that everyone was in high humor, and of course
everybody had a good time.
Jean c^lcCrachen: "The new semester, January 24th. was certainly a
good thing. It gave everyone a fresh start.
Ginny Lindholm, Athlete: "Riding a donkey may sound easy but it
isn t. And playing basketball on one is even worse, but it certainly
is fun, and the Donkey Basketball games made everybody laugh-
even the players, and I wouldn t be surprised if the donkeys got a few
hee-haws in themselves on February 7 and 8.
A Jar; Duffy: I like things sort of different, and that s probably why I
liked the Silhouette Box social, February 21. so much.

Eileen Roagers: We should have more social hours like the one the

Dick Hatcliinson: It had been such a long time since we had a dance

which a lot of people danced the cricks out of stiff knees.
Georgia Perry: The Co-ed Board really worked hard to make the
