ikript Vol. x x PAUL SMITH’S COLLEGE, PAUL SMITHS, NEW YORK No. 1 PAUL BUNYAN DANCE IS A GREAT SUCCESS The annual Paul Bunyan dance was held last Saturday October 27, and, even though only forty girls from Plattsburgh attended, it was a great success. The band was a group called the Exotas, who last year played for a campus fraternity party, and they put on a real fine show for all those attending the dance. A crowd of two-hundred and twenty turned out for the dance which realized a profit of eighty dollars for the Forestry Club. The winners of the contests were as follows. Cross cut — Don Hayes and Bill Shakley. Bow Saw — Ken Ewald. Then there was the annual hat contest which was won by Lester Morris — and listen to a descrip­ tion of this hat! It was a straw hat with chem­ ical equations and formulas, par­ tridge feathers, green stamps? Band aids?: And to top it all off the hat band was made out of pipe cleaners. Rock and roll was not the only type of dancing, Square dancing, always one of the highlights of the Paul Bunyan dance, was done again this year. Congratulations go out to Tom Potts on a fine job of calling for the dancers. The committee chairman respon­ sible for the dance this year were as follows: Tickets — Neil Bitting.
