OCTOBER 10, 1958--FROM THE BRACKETY-ACK
COKE PARTY BIG SUCCESS
The Independents Club held a coke party for all unaffiliated women students last Tuesday night. Thirty girls attended the affair, which the club President, Lynn Gitlitz termed “a great success.”
The Independents are entering a decorated car and a Miss Roanoke College contestant in the Homecoming Parade next weekend.
They are also planning to sponsor a dance on October 24 in the gym. See next week’s Brackety-Ack for further details of this dance.
[Archivist's note: "Coke" meant nothing more harmful that a Coca Cola, referred to as "Cokes" or "cokes" back then.]
