Queen Sandy reigns

Sandy Barr, 1962 Homecoming Queen, was featured in the paper surrounded by her court at last night's Norwalk-Bucyrus Football game. The Truckers football team gave Sandy a queen-sized coronation gift, a 12-0 victory. The queen was crowned prior to the game by last year's queen, Lee Cook. A formal crowning will take place a dance tonight in the high school. The homecoming royalty are: Attendants Ileen Kanwischer and Toni Cronk, and attendant Lydia Koslow.
