>>From: Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54)

Ah, the Junior Gyrene ('65) reminisces about the "good old
days" when the streets were wider (you could ride bikes three
abreast behind the mosquito jeep) and there was a juke box in
the Tastee Freeze. I couldn't claim that one, as it was By's in
my youth. Not really sure when the Tastee Freeze opened. But,
one had a choice of moom-piccures to go to. All the B pics
(including some bad film noir) at the Village and always a
double feature. The Richland showed some A pics and what ever
3-D flick showed up. And the Uptown got all the wide screen
epics starting with "The Robe". The North Star had pretty much
what the Richland had but two to three weeks later.

All very interesting, but not quite on point. Today we
acknowledge the birth of a Bomber Babe and a Bomber. Yes, they
were born on the same day, in the same hospital, to the same
mother which sorta makes them twins. Heck, they even looked
somewhat alike which furthered the illusion.

A tip of the ol' propeller beanie and a "Happy Birthday!" to
Judy and Bill ALLEN ('54). You will note I chose to honor women
first as was the norm for a while. I hope both of you have a
nice day and the candles on your birthday cakes won't burn the
place down.

Re: Mr. Boswell and other great teachers

To: Terry DAVIS Knox ('65)

Hi Terry,

Mr. Boswell was my favorite and best teacher in high school. 
I corresponded with his wife several years ago with the same
gracious response as well. Years after high school, I picked 
up a well read copy of "Red Badge of Courage", and have it 
still today.

While Mr. Boswell spurred my love of literature, Mrs. Price at
Jefferson was the BEST teacher ever, in my opinion. Of course,
she spent hours before and after school teaching me to read,
and I was, I am, and will be forever thankful. My favorite
memory of her was sweeping everything off her desk, climbing up
on top of the desk, and illustrating the Mexican Hat Dance! No
one else may remember it, but I was enthralled. We were so
lucky to have these people in our lives! 

I also fondly remember the summer reading programs at the
library. My Mom would drop me at the library on her way to
work. I would spend several hours exploring, and then "trudge"
home to Hunt St. Thank goodness for free range parenting. My
parents' attitude was you can go as far as you want to walk,
and be home before the street lights came on.

My brother Clif ('68), and his wife moved in with me last May.
They keep asking me if this is spring. I tell them it depends
on the day of the week. Today-spring, tomorrow-summer!

Re: Shot Clock

A bit more about the shot clock, and its introduction into the
NBA. The innovation that saved the game of pro basketball, or
so it's claimed. Pre shot clock the games were so slow that
final scores in the teens were not uncommon. And the long
defensive games so boring that the networks didn't even cover
championships in 1953.
