memories of gay old times.

on the program was the announcement of the homecoming queen, Shirley Hoshor,
by the football captain, Anton Engst.
Following the announcement of the Queen were well-planned skits given by
every organization and class. After the skits were presented a hobo court was
chosen from the best-dressed hobos. Reigning over it were Queen Lula Mae
Fandel and King Steve Stampe r.
A parade in the streets of Metamora came after the assembly. The band
led the parade and following were: the football players riding the fire engineg
the Queen and her court riding in a convertibleg a float reminding people to
voteg decorated carsg and hobos everywhere. After the parade a pep rally was
