Duncan car lot Searcy AR Ole Po Dunk 1956

This old ad was in a 1956 Searcy AR football program with Searcy Lions battling the Beebe Badgers.  The picture shows Rodger Duncan, son of the personality-plus Po-Dunk whose motto was "What Ole Po-Dunk says it is--it is."  Vernon Duncan was the one who began the firm and all of his children followed in the business in some way.  But this was too early for kids to be involved.

What is intriquing about this ad is what is at the bottom.  It gives the names of others at the firm but only the first names.  Perhaps we need to look back and name these folks who must have been big contributors to the success of this business.  Can you tell who Al, Ruby, Fauk, Gean, Leon and Achel were?

What?  No, I do not know who won the ball game......

If I recall correctly, the Searcy-Beebe football game was played on Thanksgiving afternoon. Do you have the program this ad came from?

Harold Gene, I do have it.  Very worm eaten and in bad shape but what a memory you have!  It is dated November 23, 1956!!  But I still don't know who won!  Don't tell anyone but I really don't care.   Shhhhhhhhh!  LOL
