Carnival Days ,
A record crowd gathered on the night of October 24, 1947 to witness
our big annual carnival. The audience enjoyed the play "Why Some Folks
Leave Home---and Others Don't." Boy was that birthday cake good!
Dick Pixler brightened the scene with "Women, and How to Improve
Them." fStrict1y the masculine ideas., Herbies First Date another hum-

The crowd was then dismissed and urged to spend freely at the
various stands. They could choose from the Doll and Basketball throws,
our Exhibition Booth, Fortune -telling, the Fish Pond, Beauty Parlor,
Telegrams, and Novelty Stand. Not to mention the delicious cakes and
pies, among other things which were sold in the Home Economics Room.

Stand and with our "Fortune -teller."
Our "Carnival Queen" was selected by popular vote from three can-

on the stage in formals that night, and Betty Lou Miller was crowned by Mr
Brouwer and was presented with an engraved locket.
An electric radio was given to Eldon for having the most tickets, and
Mr. Brouwer presented Mary Modde with a class pin for selling the most
tickets. One of our bright little fifth-graders Ronald Anrdoy was given an
electric lamp for being the best guesser.

heart of our patrons with their bright costumes, blithe singing and tempting
wares, which included bubble gum.
