A number of students from Manning High attended a
"Sweater Dance" held at Carroll on Friday, November 7. This dance was
sponsored by Carroll Band Mothers. Students from high schools in neighboring
towns were invited. Other schools, besides Manning, which were well
represented were Lake City, Coon Rapids, Auburn, and Scranton.
The dance was a great success, and the Carroll school plans to make a dance of this sort an annual affair.
Students danced to their favorite popular songs which were played on an organ by an accomplished organist.
Novelty gifts were presented at intervals throughout the evening to unsuspecting individuals. A story or yarn was attached to the presentation of these gifts. Orville Hinze was a recipient of one of these gifts. This is the story connected with it: "Orville, a friend of yours told me that you are a hog raiser, and that you have been having a considerable amount of bad luck with raising them lately: so, I am going to give you a start in a new business - the chicken business. His novelty was a small chicken.
Virginia Felt was offered a dance with Maurice Schnell, a sports star from Carroll and, of course, she accepted it.
Many prizes were given. The boy and girl winning the "door prize" received sweaters. Prizes were given to the boy and girl having birthdays on that day. A "stop dance" was held and the winning couple in this dance won a prize.
The gym was decorated with many balloons, one of which was marked. At the close of the dance, the one who found the marked balloon received a prize.
Everyone from Manning attending the dance seemed to have a very enjoyable evening.
