Friday, April 27, 1962: 'Where The Boys Went'

Said NBC newsman Chet Huntley: "Our crew, after spending two weeks with them, found they drank prodigious amounts of beer and danced the Twist interminably day and night. Neither of these appeals to older eyes as a particularly aesthetic activity but neither is especially shocking."
