hula hoop has come out into the open.
A grey-haired woman on a bus descnfed
how she had kept the hoop spinning for 12

salons have sprung up in sorority and
dorm rooms wherever a hoop is housed.
The Kansas Stale Collegian described
the object of hula hooping as "to keep it
going in a circular motion around the body
without letting it fall to the ground."

forward one, but it appears circular to the
on-looker," the Co'legian went on.

courage to demonstrate their "hooping"
prowess in male company, but Lincoln
