RETURN FROM CHICAGO TRIP: The Easton school pupils' four-day stay in Chicago was worth a year of working for money to finance the trip, judging from the smiles they displayed last night upon their arrival home on the Twilight Limited. The pupils participated on the Town and Farm program Wednesday morning over the NBC network. They were guests of the Armour Meat Packing Co. at a luncheon and the Chicago Cubs at a baseball game during their stay. Those taking the vacation trip were: First row (left to right)--Erwin Trinkle, Marjorie Bradbury, Frances Pidd, Edwin Coy, and Erwin Pidd; second row--Mrs. James E. Davis, teacher at the school who accompanied the group, Betty Lou Bradbury, William Stoffer, Betty Jane Pidd, Audrey Coy and Charles Trinkle.
