..."We can be proud of our young people here," he said.
"They're among the finest anywhere and they're far from being irresponsible.
"At least 800 Y-Club members who participate in Coffee House activities weekly- making their own rules, decorating and cleaning and forming committees along with many other things-
prove it to me," stated the veteran Y worker.
S.E. Maxwell, president of the Montgomery Fair Plaza echoes the feeling and credits local teen talent with making several store events more successful.
"There's no doubt that the young people's interest in teen bands helped promote success of several fashion shows," he said. "We had one group called The Three Plus Threes play for our "Seventeen Magazine Back-To-School show and another group,
THE ROCKIN' GIBRALTARS,
played for a show at the store.
"THE PLACE WAS PACKED!!!,"
stated Maxwell. "In fact, people filled our parking area and some came 50 miles to hear the group and see the fashions."
Other groups that have performed at the facility include the Early Times from Troy, The British Walkers and The Collections.
Regular groups at the Coffee Houses are King James and the Royals, The Lochapoka Cheese & Fireworks, The Sorcerer's Apprentices, The Blitzkrieg, Sound Attack and The Nite Lights.
The Drones group has graduated to more adult facilities where its members are booked for better pay, however, while another group-
THE ROCKIN' GIBRALTARS
now The Heart-
was "discovered" a year ago by a talent scout and is currently negotiating a movie contract.
Few groups however ever expect or hope to be "discovered" and consider the group itself as a high school or college hobby.
Many groups-like the Soul Divisions-
do split up when its members go to different colleges.
"All of them are in leading universities too, " said Bryan.
"That should speak for itself and them..."
One thing for sure, parents- who like the rock groups because the boys have less time for more frivolous pastimes-
don't have to worry about where their children are when they are "in" a group.THEY KNOW WHERE THE YOUNGSTERS AREBECAUSE THEY CAN HEAR THE BEAT...

TALLULAH TURNS ON THE STEAM-
Actress Tallulah Bankhead found herself in a real-life drama yesterday when she expressed her opinions during a recess in New York where her former maid is being tried on charges of grand larceny and forgery of checks. Later, Tallulah swept angrily out of the courtroom when she objected to the defense attorney's "tactics."
STAR IN REAL DRAMA
TALLULAH DENIES MAID PAID GIGOLOS
New York, Dec. 12- (AP)-
Tallulah Bankhead, playing herself in a real court drama, may take the witness stand today to answer a lawyer's statements she was provided "COCAINE, BOOZE & SEX" by her former maid- secretary.
"TALLULAH BANKHEAD taught Mrs. Cronin how to roll marijuana cigarettes...I want to shield the names of those who smoked them, whom she paid and the parties." (He challenged the state to ask Mrs. Cronin the names.)
Thanks so much for figuring out how to get the cheerleader photo forwarded to me.
I have not seen that photo since it was taken.
I was in the Graphic a lot during college and after college modeling clothes for several of the campus dress shops. Let me know if you run across me again !
I also should have gotten big billing when I was crowned Sesquicentennial Queen in April (?), 1969 and Jr. Miss in December (?) 1966 or Spring 1967.
As for b. and suggestions of adventures in the mansion, I find that rather interesting in that in 1969, b. would have been in the 9th grade, rather young for such escapades, don't you think ?
She was one of my sister's very best friends during this time.
They would come to where I was living and would remove clothes from my closet and take them to the mansion and alter them to fit themselves.
I had so many clothes that it was a while before I started missing things.
I assumed that some of my sorority sisters were borrowing them and not returning them.
I discovered what was going on when I saw some of them at my mother's house.
You reunion web site was cool -
I loved hearing Iron Butterfly.
I heard that the name of that song came from the singer being really messed up on whatever (drugs/alcohol, etc) and was trying to say "in the garden of eden".
That makes perfectly good sense, doesn't it !
Anyway, we all loved the song and drank lots of whiskey while listening ! - Ahhhh, the good old days !
Have a fun time at your reunion and stay in touch !
Thank you for enlightening us as to our ethnicity.
I have been worried about this for quite some time now, so I am very relieved to finally put this query to rest.
But, that's not why I called. I want to inquire about the unknown language below the Shorty Price article.
It seems foreign to me...could it be my newfound BLACKNESS is already affecting my ability to read?!?! Can the ability to read actually be ethnically-based?!?!
Aw, Lahd have mercy on dis ole black soul....
