'French' French Dukes: Three Mack Elementary School sixth graders are shown here doing a take-off on Ann Arbor's French Dukes--the city's award-winning precision drill team. The French Duke skit, however, was done entirely in French. The Mack students, who are studying the French language, made up the French Dukes' skit and two other routines themselves, and have presented them to their classmates and also to some Eberwhite School students. French teacher Gordon E. Boettcher, who helped the students with their French dialogue, says they have been invited to perform at Eastern Michigan University. The students pictured are (from left) Paul Patterson, John Jackson and David Simmons. The "real" French Dukes marched in the inaugural parade.

Mack School Fathers "Double" At Bridge Bridge, as "played" by women is the theme of one of the hilarious skits which will be presented by men of the Mack School PTA at the group's benefit card party Wednesday night at the school. While H. L. DeGroff of Hillcrest Dr. (left) ponders a raise to seven spades, Arthur S. Hall of Beechwood Dr. peeks through a lorgnette at the hand of Dr. Walter Swartz of Sunset Rd. and R. E. Sevebeck of Virginia Ave. (right) smiles smugly at the five spades, king high, in his hand.

With slightly shaky success, a new group of Bluebirds tried its wings on ice recently. And giggles drowned out any worries of failure. Pictured from left are Nora McNamara, Leader Martha Cooper, Kris Williams, Helper Missy Babcock, and Beth Meade. (The woman in the background is not identified.) The Bluebirds, as well as their older counterparts, the Camp Fire Girls, are organizing for the first time in Ann Arbor under Mrs. Cooper's direction. Mrs. Cooper, who was a Camp Fire Girl in her youth, decided to launch the program locally because of fond memories of her Colorado girlhood in the organization. The two groups are actively seeking more recruits so they can grow, flourish and share their experiences more widely. Of course, adult volunteer leaders are needed, too. The groups are for girls of all races, religions, national origins and economic backgrounds from the age of six through high school.
