the record hop which took place (
last Saturday lugm at the Eden-i
ton armory. It was the first!
of its kind in this area and ij
spent the week preceding the 1
dance wondering how I could]
get out of it My mind oonjur- j
ed all sorts of unhappy pictures'
. . , snowstorms, nobody out
there, equipment failure and!
who knows what else? Anyway.]
as things turned out we had a!
huge crowd. We drew a larger i
crowd than did Joe Franklin]
or any other attraction in a long]
time. We had guests from all!
over and everyone at the dance,
had a terrific time. So. with:
such a tremendous and emhusi-l
astic response, there’s nothing!
left foe us to do but to aeceedj
to the demands of the public]
and hold several similar-type i
hops this spring and summer.)
We'll have more music and priz-j
es and fun. so listen to
tor further details. Our thanks,
publicly, to the pecole who help
ed so well. In Hertford, one

the dance. Most of our attend- I

j of anyone’s library.
THE WEST Riding, roping, -
saddling and working horses and
cattle is quite a chore for a
cowpoke with two good hands, j
but when you have an amputat
ed left hand, substituted by a 1
clever hook arrangement, and a
crippled right hand, doing those
things, and doing them well, is 1
quite an achievement. But that ]
is what Bob Hankla, on his
Colorado horse ranch, does every
day; and takes no back seat, or
saddle, from any cowmr.n or
horseman with two good hands.
[pie of high school age and I’ve]
I never seen a better bunch of
guys or gals. They had a ter-1
i rific time at the same time and!
they did it without giving any
one a hard time. Meaning they!
were the best behaved group
I’ve ever come across. They
should be warmly commended i
for that. Not one person gave
anyone a hard time or an ounce
of trouble. Such is not the case,
in most places, especially our,
bigger cities. Boy, you toss
something like this record hop
in New York and it’d be mur
der. Incidentally, we were dis
cussing that after the dance
with some senior citizens of ourj
town, and it was agreed that;
some adults could take lessons
from some of these guys and
gals in behavior. I’ve seen par
ties of so-called adults that of-:
sered a whale of a lot of trou
ble. Anyway, all in all, it was
a terrific Saturday night at the
Our closing thought was in
spired by reading of the many,
many disc-jockeys that are in
New York City looking for a
job. Some of them are being
forced to work at minimum
wages in jobs not connected i
with radio or television. These
are the jockeys that were fired]
as a result of the payola mess, j
That brought to mind this
thought: The person that amass-!
es wealth without consideration'
for the things of God, is a fool.
