Skating Rink Hoisington Kans. This is a picture of the inside of the skating rink. The band stand is suspended from the ceiling. No doubt you can tell which one is Ray. Maynell is below with skates on. He is kneeling on the floor with his head resting on his hand. How does this find you and how are you getting along with your school. Birdie. Many, many thanks for your picture and the other pretty things you sent Christmas. Mrs. Pearle Joslin, Lyons Kansas (R. D. NO. 5 Care of Steve Avery)
