Memory Monday # 73

     Because I went through sorority rush, I was in the dorm room before my roommate who did not go through rush.  When we applied for rooms, we filled out an interest sheet and I think they did try to match us up with things in common.  My roommate and I were both Catholic; both were from out of state; and both smoked!  Mary Jane and I became life long friends...she was from South Dakota and DROVE to Mizzou in a 1948 Ford which we dubbed Milton.  Freshmen girls were not supposed to have cars on campus, but because MJ was coming so far, she was able to get a pass.

Not "Milton" but a close facimile!
     We didn't use Milton too much, but it was kind of nice to have "wheels" if and when we needed to get some where!
