V 5 N. 66 A Few Bits and Pieces

On vacation back in Ohio, fortunately some things came to us from various sources to keep the blog going.

First this ad from Pete Brown:  from the 1953 NCAA Track and Field Guide

 Carrying on with women in track back in those days.   Most relays and big meets had a queen, even a court.  Here is the write up on the queen at the San Diego Invitational back in 1966. "Sports are exciting and stimulating.  If I were a man, I'd want to be a pro athlete."  Probably wouldn't pass the PC acid test these days.

A San Diego MacDonald's Ad Circa 1966 from the same program.
Full disclosure of their ingredients,  Wonder Bread and meat from Swift Packing.
Now those things are a mystery.  And three locations in San Diego, Wow!

Wonder if these guys diversified and went into Port A Johns?
Wouldn't have had to change much in the ad copy.

What a wonderful concept.  Now was the product served on the sidelines to the athletes?
