Women Water-Skiers identified

Sarah Jane Johnson,  whose family has long ties to our community, brought in a newspaper clipping that identifies the four women water-skiing at Louise Hays Park during a water ski show.  This photo is in my book, and was scanned from a print marked "Swayze Studio" on the back.  The newspaper clipping identifies the photographer as Jorns.  I think the newspaper clipping is mistaken: I think the photo was taken by Fuzzy Swayze.

  2. I can ski, but I wouldn't want to ski at night.

  3. The ski course at the park was not as long as the one at Ingram Dam, but it was just as much fun.
