muk \AitU The Adult Film "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Weolf" Now Playing At The Algona Theatre ONCE IN A WHILE ONE of our kids have asked me, "What In the world did you do for fun when you were young ?" This usually came after one of my lectures on growing up in the depression when movies cost a quarter and a hot fudge sundae, with whipped cream and nuts, only a dime. Only, excepting very rarely, nobody had the quarter or the dime. When I was going through some souvenirs a while back, I found one picture that proved, to me at least, that we did manage to have lots of fun in spite of the hard times. - o THE PICTURE WAS OF THE FORMAL PARTY - a designation that amply distinguishes this affair from any other dance, prom or party. The picture, or pictures, were taken mid-way in the festivities at a 10? a shot studio temporarily located over Graham's store, and although several of the individual pictures have come unstuck from the cardboard where I pasted them, and lost ; the ones that are left were enough to set me remembering. - o « THE FORMAL PARTY STARTED ONE night at an A. F. L. Club meeting. The initials stood for "After-the- Folks -Leave" because we used to get together informally, with or without dates, at whosever's house was parentless for the evening. We were very sophisticated^ We played charades, listened to the Lights Out radio program, read the new magazine, Life, or just sat around talking about what we wished would happen. We thought we were pretty wild, but about the most wicked thing I can remember happening was the time T. Post, on a dare, took a bath in Isabel Greenberg's bathtub. Anyway, one night one of the guys said he always had the yen to wear a tuxedo. Plans for The Formal Party immediately got moving. . • - o - • TUXEDOES WERE NOT ONLY THE starting point of The Formal Party, they also presented the biggest problem. We girls had our dresses from the junior- senior banquets, but you couldn't rent evening apparel as you can now. Or at least .we either hadn't heard about it or didn't have the cash so a list was immediately compiled of every male Algonan who had been to college and might reasonably be expected to loan a tuxedo. The party was to be held at the Algona Hotel, who agreed to let us use the dining room all evening for dancing if we would pay 50$ a head for a three-course dinner. - o- MOST OF US WERE JUST OUT of high school, or in the senior year there, so we knew we didn't dare have a party without chaperones. Most of our folks were nearing 40, so we couldn't ask any of them because they would surely cramp our style. So we went into a huddle and picked a pair we admired, who were not much older than we were, but who would be acceptable to our parents - Dru Caughlin and BUI Steele. So far as we knew, they hadn't been going around together, but Dru was the pretty and popular clerk at a local drugstore and Bill not only had been to college, he also had a clothing store, so he was very likely to have a tuxedo. They accepted and we paired them off for the evening. THE ATTENDEES LIST - WE COULDN'T call them guests, because everybody paid their own way - wasn't hard to compile. As I remember it, the girls were Elaine Hilstedt, Marion Corey, Toots Larson, IrmaDee Phillips, Esther Pratt, Isabel Greenberg, Gayle Shackelford, Ruth Malueg and from as far awayasDes Moines, Ruth Empting. The boys were Slick Mathes, Gunny March, John Bishop, "T" and Cutle Post, John Shilts, Mush Spencer, Bob McCuUough, Chuck Stevenson and Bill Dailey. With quite a bit of maneuvering, I managed to get lined up with my current crush for the evening, but as the event progressed, , he gained some favor with his current crush which started eventually, a marriage, which has lasted more than 26 years. I, as usual, went home with Mush. - o IN THE YEARS SINCE, I'VE lost track of too many of the participants of The Formal Party. We're scattered all over the country and at least one of us, Bill Dailey, is no longer living. Probably most of us are grandparents, now. But If we can" remember back far enough, we can truthfully say, "Yes, we sure had fun when we were young 1" - o DURING THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 9 through 15, people having birthdays Include Diane Allen, Paul Martin, Eleanor Geelan, Barbara Wicks, Paul Seeley, Roger Barr, Ricky Nielsen, Jim Milder,' Clara Keith, Gregory Allen, Theresa Marti, Cathy McDonald, Mike Dooley, Jon Diem, Al Agena, Jim Modrell, Joseph Strautv Jr., Helen Leaneagh, Allen Kuester, Sheila Wlnkel, Joel Morris, Ruth fflgsbee, Colleen Montag, Erman Hanson, Pat Woods, Marlene Elmore, Dottle Martin, Clinton Christian.
