Lois Wilhelm Is Homecoming Ruler
Lois Wilhelm, local senior, was named queen of homecoming in a special ceremony between halves of the game. Danny Peters, co-captain of the Bulldogs, did crowning honors with Mel Clothier adding "congratulations."
Attendants to Queen Lois, who were paraded around the field by Ed Hinners in his convertible, were Mary Ann Kasperbauer, Mary Ann Rothfolk, Virgene Grimm, Delores Hammer and Iva Mohr.
Appearing as honored attendants at the ceremony were Suzanne Steneker and Jimmy Callen, dressed in white formal attire. They rode in Jerri Bruck's convertible.
Three floats appearing in the afternoon parade were also displayed before the homecoming crowd. The band gave some intricate maneuvers roundly applauded.
