This is a picture taken at Hunters at a band party. It's Jim Johnson (who lives in Shreveport now) and I and we won first prize at a Halloween costume party. It was either in 1956 or 57. Kay Cunningham and Ray Davis came in late to the party dressed as lumberjacks. You couldn't even tell who they were--they probably should have won, but didn't get there in time for the contest! Thanks for sharing!

E13Dolores Bright in a 1953 play "HERE COMES CHARLIE"
E12The little kid is Ken Elzen. I can't remember the guy with the guitar.
The best I can remember is that Ken sang with me on a talent
show one time and then sang with me on Channel 12 in Shreveport.
Nancy Cox, Class of 1957, was MC on a show called Teen Time and I was on
numerous times. After this was taken, we decided that Ken
should be on TV with me. He stole the show. I think we sang "Honeycomb."
We had first identified the little kid singing as Rodney Elzen, brother to Ken, and
son of Tony Elzen, Class of 1938
Says Ken "THAT IS ME INSTEAD OF RODNEY IN PICTURE WITH ED MORELAND, SINGING."

E3 -1SENIOR Play 53
I know it is Charles Adams and may be me, although I do not recall a costume change and this is a different dress than what I was wearing in the other photograph...Tom Ashcroft was in this play also...I remember he was supposed to stuff some pearls into a vase on a table while saying something that explained it, but had a lot of trouble trying to get the pearls into the vase and consequently his actions onstage did not "go" with the words. Tommy was distressed about it while it was happening, but I remember we all laughed with Tommy about it when the play was over. We sure had a lot of fun with the plays.
