Girls to Be in American Royal
   Sharon and Shirley Ducate, Phyllis Graf, Claudia Horn, and Kay Lockwood brought an honor to Southeast by being chosen to participate in the American Royal Coronation Ball, October 16.
   Several of the girls will participate in the two dance numbers and the others will be pages to the queen.
   From 147 girls, the five judges chose sixty. The girls wore shorts and blouses. They were judged on dancing ability, poise, and beauty.
Wouldn't It Be Funny?
● Claudia Horn were a drum instead of a Horn.
● Bill were a weekly instead of a Daily.
● Janice were a room instead of a Hall.
● Dick were a chain instead of a Linck.
● Sandy were a yardstick instead of a Ruhl.
● Roger were a butcher instead of a Taylor.
● Nancy were a joy instead of a Payne.
● Danny were a mountain instead of a Hill.
● Carol were a loss instead of a Gain.
● Bob were a waiter instead of a Butler.
● Janet were a Cadillac instead of a Hudson.
● Jo Ann were a bird instead of a Fish.
Chit Chat
   Seen swirling and twirling at the Prom last Saturday were: Barb Brackney and Lynn Alexander, Darlene Scott and Don Teeters, Sandy Ruhl and Jim Colwell, Betty Nelson and Gary Walton, Peggy Dorsey and Bob Jones, Claudia Horn and Don Miller, and Mona Halliburton and Earl Crawford.
   The Kenny White Band played for a "Backward" dance at Garret Hall. It seems that the girls took the boys and made them corsages out of vegetables! Some of the guys and gals there were: Betty Huska and Dick Kirwan, Shirley Ducate and Dave Hudson, "Louie" Erickson and Gary Barnard (Paseo), Barbara Pierce and Darrell Koll, Yvonne Strode and Jimmy Nye, and Claudia Horn and Don Miller.
   Mary Lou Alexander, Oletha Ludwig, Louie Erickson, Claudia Horn, Leann Riggs were some of the girls I saw eating and talking (of course) at a birthday party. In case you're wondering, it was Carol Hamarstrom's 18th birthday.
