Title Lucile
Description Then she went on to explain how the town, and especially Manti High School, depended on the Manti Armada. They did not have gyms in the building, so their basketball games, dances such as the proms, and various other activities were held in the Armada, which was a large auditorium built behind the Manti Theatre. It could be reached by walking up the alley to the north of the theatre. This was not bad during the warm months, but when winter came with heavy snow and ice, that lane could get really slippery. The Armada had a spring floor which was wonderful for dancing. Sometimes the young folks standing on the west end and moving together got the floor to jumping. This was great fun. Usually it happened at least one time during each dance. Lucile was twenty-three years of age when she married a Manti boy. Clark Keller, who had no transportation from his house in the northeast part of town and had to walk all that distance to the Anderson home to date Lucile. He was a handsome lad. They were married in the Manti Temple June 30. 1920. After marriage, they were met by friends and relatives who shivareed" them up Manti's Main Street by riding in the John Tobler street-cleaning cart, pulled by a lone mule to Lucile's parent's home. That night their wedding dinner and reception were held on the front and side lawns, under the tall walnut trees. Their rented home was the rock house at 125 East Union Street in Manti. Later they bought the house at 403 East 200 North where Lucile is living at the present time. In the 1920s she heard the first radio that came to Manti. Later in the 1930s she watched and heard the first talking pictures. Her life has had many firsts-the first televisions, and even remote control. Today is the computer age, which mystifies most of us of the older generations. During World War I, Lucile and other women of Manti made bandages from old sheets which had been cut into the right sizes. Other volunteer Manti women knit socks and sweaters for the soldiers and sailors. Lucile also sewed for her own family, making sheets, pillowcases, even underwear out of flour sacks. During World War II Lucile often said, "This is the most worrisome time In my life, as all my boys are in the service of their country." 84
