Title Goodnight Sweetheart
Description in time. The megaphones sang out all your favorite tunes as the floor rocked with the Charleston, Foxtrot, Jitterbug, the Quadrilles, and that all-time favorite--the Hesitation Waltz. Those who were not dancing stood in little groups and talked or lost themselves in the romance of the dimly lit dancehall. Charles and Maggie were out on the floor showing off all the steps they knew. They could really dance, and Charles would twirl Maggie around the floor until they were the envy of all who watched. Suddenly, the elastic in Maggie's bloomers broke and they fell to her ankles. There was a gasp from the crowd, Maggie paused but a moment to step gracefully out of the bloomers and toss them under a hench. Then away she swirled as if it was all part of the latest dance step.

Some of the boys would always sneak up to the side of him and put chewing gum under his foot. Alt and Erma never missed a dance. If there wasn't a dance scheduled, they would find some reason to have one.

Alt thought it would be sad if they all just went home after the shown So Alt and his brother Howard hired an orchestra, rented the Dreamland Social Hall, got Erma and the women to fix up some refreshments and put on the biggest dance you have ever seen. It was free to everyone, and everyone was most certainly there. They sure went all out for those things and always had such a good time. One time they had a costume dance and Alt went as Lil* Abner. He put on his ragged levis and a rope for a suspender. And sure enough, while Alt was out there dancing with Erma, someone crept up behind him and cut the rope that was holding up his pants. Erma especially loved to dance on the spring floor in Manti, That floor would give when you danced 51
