Searcy ladies campaigning for Ed Bethune.
Ed Bethune, who lived in Searcy AR in 1978, has a new book called "The Thinking Spot. A Sequel to A Pearl for Kizzy" so it might be timely to recall this old picture from the Searcy Daily Citizen. His books are quite enjoyable and educational. Seems as if he was running for Congress and had lots of support from Searcy. Reading under the picture tells where they were going but not who they were. The lady on the right was Louise VanHook who was co-owner of the Van-Atkins store in our town. The VanHook estate sale that was just held is where this old picture was found.
Notice the style....bell bottom trousers, waist high, dragging the ground.
Searcy Sleuths, who were the other ladies? And were you perhaps part of the campaign? And all of you check out Bethune's new book!
