roses and was crowned Mr.

annual Good Sports Club Sport
Pageant, held in conjunction
with the annual athletic picnic at
Sunset Park on May 10.
In the talent competition,
Jimmy and Brad Shields took
the honors, while .Gerald
Wiggins came in a distant
second. Jimmy presented a
dramatic reading of a poem
entitled “Rain.” Little did he
know that when it rains, it
pours. That is, from the buckets
of Good Sports Club members.

Sera, Sera.” He was not Doris

some amazing 32-28-32 mea

audience his acrobatic prowess
by doing one forward somer

Beth Hignite, Georgia Miller,
Terri Hines, and Cynthia
McKnight, and athletes Ricky
Lewis, Buddy Luper, Joey
Robbins, Ronnie King, Tim
English, and Tom Groome, who
presented a show entitled the
Good Sports Club Follies. Apart
from the black tights and jean
skirts of the can-can girls, not
much can be said for the
entertainment provided, and all
eyes awaited the contestants’
return in evening gowns.
In the evening gown compe
tition, Jimmy’s dress featured a
revealing red satin bodice
accentuated by spaghetti straps
and a full red net standout skirt.
Brad wore an empire waist
green gown with white velvet
bodice, while Gerald wore a
green and white checked gown
with blue-trimmed sleeves.
Jimmy’s evening gown stole
the hearts of the audience and
the judges, and insured him of
victory with his first place tie in
the talent competition.
Taking a few moments to
compose himself back stage,
Jimmy came out and received
the red rose and tinfoil crown,
symbols of the office, and was

dogs and hamburgers cooked
over an open grill by Good

“My parents and I both felt
quite happy about it. I’m
looking forward to going to

from the high atmosphere to the
college atmosphere, but com

the same. The competition is on
a higher level in college than in
high school.
I’ll have to make a real
adjustment as far as studies,”
continued Wiggins, “and I’ll
have to plan my study time. I’ve
enjoyed getting to know the
teachers and students at Senior

Senior High. I think we have
some real nice coaches at Senior

to me as a coach, and is a person
