Fall, 1947. Some church ladies were having a canning bee in the kitchen of the Bible College. True enough. When a load of peaches arrived on campus a number of volunteers showed up to process and can the luscious beauties-- the peaches, I mean.
On this particular afternoon, a young person arrived by bicycle to proffer assistance with the process. Some of the biddies ladies may have been appalled at the scandalous attire and bold makeup on this young thing. But help is help, so washing fruit jars was an afternoon's entertainment for the young thing.
