CLOSE ENCOUNTER Even Clark Gable had to get his mail—and it was an excellent photo op. Page 16 ADVENTURES IN KOREA War is never funny, but sometimes it has its moments, as proved by two incidents described on pages 24 and 62.

Page 46 ABOUT OUR COVER We love this picture of Ann Hurt, Sue Cox and Fairy Summer of Lamesa High School in Borden County, Texas, marching in a 1941 parade. Our tinted version features the school’s colors—black and Vegas gold. Do you know these majorettes? Write: submissions@reminisce.com. Keep Reminisce coming every month!
