How's your head? If you've been able to read this much without all the
letters running together, you're in pretty good shape!
A couple of our people ended the old year in a little less than tip-top
condition. Don Niska mashed his finger Tuesday night, December 26, when he
attempted to speed up the operation of a bilge pump by sticking his finger
into the pulley. Jerry Goodwin fell on his head and the doctor suggested a
stay at home of a couple of days, plus X-rays to determine any possible
Visitors to the station: Reverend Beech of the First Presbyterian Church of
Dearborn, with Mrs. Beech and their six children - Tuesday, December 26.
To say that the KeeNeR DJ - Harlem Globetrotrotters basketball exhibition
was a success is the understatement of the year. Attendance for the
Globetrotters' appearances in the past has averaged around 10,000. Last
Saturday Olympia was filled to overflowing. All seats and standing room on
the main floor and the balcony were sold; bringing the total to 14,500. and
because of the newspaper strike, the only publicity for the game was on WKNR.
Big V was in the act again - a rather large symbol of the New Year dressed
in white tights and wearing a baby blue diaper and a ribbon across his
chest. He proved to be quite a challenge to the Globetrotters when they
hoisted him up to the basket to retrieve a ball that had become lodged
between the basket and the backboard. and it was a little less than funny to
him when they left him hanging from the supporting pipes for a short time..
As part of his scouting activity, Jerry Martin will be attending the annual
weekend campout of the Downriver District Explorer Scouts being held this
coming Saturday and Sunday at the D.o A Scout Ranch at Metamora. He is on
the food committee so his presence is definitely required!
PROJECT DETROIT for Sunday, January 7, will be a Review of Happenings in

15 minute economic forecast for 1968 discussed, on both AM and FM, with
