Title Seveteen Nicknames and a Dime
Description left. This pulled Che team out of their roadway so they were running right in the middle of the street, headed directly toward a light pole. When they reached the pole, they straddled it with each horse running on his side of the pole. There was a terrific crash as the wagon struck the pole. I thought the pole might stop them, but it did not even slow them down. I was amazed to see the harnesses stripped off both horses, and they continued running down the street at full speed. The wagon was badly damaged by its collision with the pole, but the horses appeared to get away without injury. Source: Recollection of the writer. SEVENTEEN NICKELS AND A DIME Ruth D. Scow Manti, UT 84642 Third Place Anecdote One thing the people of Sanpete County were not lacking in the decade of the 20s was dance halls or places to dance. Some were outdoors and some were indoors. A dance ticket per couple to dance at Palisade from 9 p.m. to midnight, or even to 1 a.m., was only $1, but money was hard to come by in those days; and in Manti, a neighbor, Jim "Beelit" Petersen, drove a two-seated, four-door Maxwell car which would carry five passengers or more to and from the Palisade dance hall for 25 cents per person. Many times we girls who didn't have dates but wanted to go to the dance used "Beelit's" transportation. Then came the night I had a date with a boy from Ephraim. Everything went well as he stopped for me at Manti. The night was beautiful with a full moon. As we parked the car, we felt a cool, soft breeze blowing up from across Funk's Lake. Hand in hand, we climbed the hill and the steps to the dance hall, which was built on top of the hill west of the lake. 3
