— It’s been 66 years this date we remember;
It was 1946 the 23rd of November
When Bob and Helen with hearts full of hope,
Sset forth to Covington — the plan —to elope.
It seemed the preacher was so hard to find
(It’s a wonder that one of them didn’t change their mind).
Now, Bob tripped on the step, but didn’t fall far;
He was saved by his best man, Van Dyke (the star).
They motored to Crawfordsville for the honeymoon.
Is there anything in Crawfordsville to make a bride swoon?
But these many years later, we can now
Report the success of that elopement plan.
