Commons way back when

Back when students looked like the guy on the left and the required breakfast sign-in was 7:20 (with 20 minutes to wait in line for food) before required chapel or all-school meeting at 7:50 (6 days a week), there were NO McDonalds, no common-room TVs, no dorm-room phones, no video games, very few dorm munches — back then PA boys  dreamed of taking Abbot girls to drive-in movies in cars like this (guy & car on the right) AND the Commons menu featured such favorites as “MYSTERY MOUNDS!”  (You can imagine what those were like!)
