Team members were Rudy Monson, Larry Tessier, Paul Nace, Kenneth Sunnarborg, Eugene Norlander, Howard Tucker, Tony Skull, Jerry Walczak, Bruce Budge, Keith Stolen and student manager Bob Scott.
Do you remember the children's book, "The Little Engine that Could"? The April 3 front-page photo of a freighter and a tugboat was a perfect example of that book. I could almost hear the tugboat in the photo puffing out, "I think I can. I think I can." Great picture!
