Following the "Wagon Wheels"
theme of the ball, the stage was set
in western style. Rail fences sur
rounded the miniature covered
wagon and a realistic campfire
glowed in the background. Before
the ceremony a men's quartet com
posed of Neal Baxter, Tom Chil
vers, Don Kellogg and Stanley
Lambert sang "Tumbling Tnmble
weeds" to add to the atmosphere.
The dance floor was also ap
propriately decorated with tree
branches and a fitting center
piece of a huge cornshock sur-
rounded by baled hay seats. Cou
ples entered the dance floor
through portals of the same bales.
The dance was the most suc
cessful in many years as approxi
mately 250 couples in rural garb
danced to the music of Morton
Wells and his "cowboys for a
night."
