Title Open Air Dance
Description OPEN AIR DANCE Noraa 5. WanIass Manti, Utah Non-ProfessiOTial Division Second Place Anecdote They were young and vibrant. Paul Smith came to Kanti to make cheese for Manti Cheese Manufacturing Company. Geneve joined him after their baby arrived. It vas summer, 192^. The farmers cooperated that morning and. had their milk waiting in the cans when Parley Peterson came to pick it up, so Paul separated the whey, pressed the curd, and. pressure steanied the huge milk vats, floors awl Halls early that evening. "Let's go to the dance out to Palisade," Paul suggested while eating supper. "Where's Palisade?" Geneve asked. "Oh, out between here and Sterling, nestled up in the hills to the east. A few ex-army buddies decided to build a dance floor out there when they got home from the war. They put it on top of a hill looking out over the valley to the west, and Palisade Lake to the northeast." "It's really popular. They brirsg "bands in from all over the state. On a dance night the road looks like Chicago going to a baseball game." ¦¦What will we do with Norma? We can't get a baby tender this late," Geneve asked. 'Take her with us," Paul answered. They acquired permission at the Canteen to put their baby on a shelf in a box, oat of the way. Then they went to the dance. Oh, they had fun! They would dance two or three dances, run. to check on the baby, then hurry back so they wouldn't mise a single dance. Norma never fussed. There might have been one slight difference when Paul and Geneve claimed her. Her face and hair seemed to have a fine coating of hamburger grease. She glistened like a new copper penny.
