How could I forget it? Missed making a comment on Lois and
Larry's (both '56) wedding anniversary yesterday. Dumb, I
know. And I don't have a monitor full of sticky notes to
remind me. Hope you kids had a nice time and didn't stay up
too late partying.

Re: School colors

It would seem that schools all over the place are getting away
from what got them from where ever they are. Wazzo is not the
only school going away from school colors. That group down in
Eugene blew a national champeenship game by going away from
the green and yellow by wearing white and silver. Think even
the Bombers have gone from emerald green to a very dark
(almost black) green. I guess the crowning blow will be when
the Stanford team comes out wearing pink and green. Boy, would
that be a long way from cardinal red.

	currently, the trees are not changing color because of 
	the extended summer hours or temps.

Re: Newberry's

Attending Chief Jo we would frequently leave campus to lunch 
at the fountain. Phosphates were in style then.

Re: Well Lynne-Marie I can't beat your Christmas story at
Newberry's but I do definitely have memories. Number 1 has to
be the milk chocolate dollar mints! I also remember huge hot
dogs. Did they have those? Then moving on to preteen and my
first lipstick, bras-ekkk! So embarrassing! Lunch counter
mainly - I loved food then and still do! Wish kids still had
Newberry's to go to......

Re: Newberry's

Loved that place-always went there for banana splits... my
brother, 5 cousins and I would walk to the Uptown, the
Saturday before Christmas and do all our shopping for our
grandmother, great-uncle and our parents... we could browse
the aisles in Newberry's for hours and seemed like we always
ended up with "the best" gifts for all on our lists. We even
had enough money left, that we'd sit at the counter and we'd
all share either banana splits or hot fudge sundaes.

Re: Tangerine lipstick

There was also a tube that would turn orange, when applied to
lips... I always bought that one, cause my mom wouldn't let me
wear red lipstick-said it was "too dark" for teens. Til I
found the Tangerine, she would only let me wear the palest
pink. There is a catalog and a web site where you can still
buy Tangerine... "Vermont Country Store"... they have all
sorts of "oldies"... candies that we grew up with, but can no
longer find, along with all sorts of other stuff. Love that
site/catalog... brings back all sorts of great memories of a
long-ago childhood.

   [I just googled my Tangee lipstick and they have
   tit at he Vermont Country Store, too. -Maren]

-Linda REINING ('64) ~ Autumn has definitely arrived in 
	Kuna, ID... we have even had snow in the mountain areas
	and Bogus Basin might just have an early ski season

First Lynn-Marie HATCHER Peashka ('68) / Newbarry's

My best friend, Ken MEEK ('67), & I used to walk home from
Chief Joe every day, occasionally detouring to the Uptown
shopping center to stop by Ken's dad's sporting goods store,
BB&M (remember) to see what was new. Then we would, almost
without fail, stop at Newberry's to drool over whatever junior
high aged boys drooled over. One day I was hungry (as usual)
and Ken was not. I had enough coins to buy one hot dog at the
soda fountain; I talked Kenny into splitting a dog with me.
The girl (lady to us) took our split hot dog order, but
brought us two whole dogs! She said something about her shift
being over soon & tossing away the dogs still in the "ferris-
wheel" style dog warmer! Of course, Ken said if he ate the
dog, he wouldn't eat dinner, but of course I was ready for a
dog as a warm-up for dinner! 

You can bet we stopped at Newberry's for hot dogs more often
after that! That is my favorite Newberry's memory; who's next?

Re: the Cougar uniforms 

It was crimson and gray as long as I was at school there,
September of '68 to June of '72. Not red & gray, not crimson &
white, certainly not red & white! Our colors were, as it says
in the school song, crimson & gray! To this day, coming up on
our 50 year reunion next year, it is still that.

   [Geez, people. Don't get your panties in a twist.
   I didn't GO to WSU so I just plain don't know the
   difference between maroon and crimson. -Maren]

Peace, and I stand!

Re: Memories of Newberry's from Lynn-Marie HATCHER Peashka ('68)

Two of my memories are the soda fountain where occasionally we
would have a hot dog lunch and then I could pick a candy out
of the bulk candy bins. 

Also, in the Spring, before Easter, they had a bin full of
dyed, live little chicks. Loved to hear their chirps. 

Good memories all the way around...

Re: Newberry's

My Mom worked at Newberry's when I was in grade school so
Newberry's did have one downside... many of my school clothes
came from Newberry's which definitely had a coolness factor
much lower than clothes that came from Dawson-Richards!
Fortunately there were lots more pluses... a weekly lunch at
the lunch counter, a dime (sometimes even a quarter!) to spend
any way I wanted at that amazing candy counter, the occasional
bag of popcorn, Santa and Toyland upstairs during the
holidays. 

The big score usually happened when my Mom and sister would
spend what seemed like hours searching through material and
patterns in the sewing section. By properly applying just the
right amount of whining, I usually got sent over to the model
cars and planes section where I would score the latest that
Revell had to offer.

I really miss that place...
