It’s A Despicable
and Dastardly Deed that
Not since Smoke Signals ran the story of Bwana Boz,
the coon killer, have we received the flood of
emails that the Xtra regarding the ebay auction of Iris Duncan’s ’63 Central Yearbook generated.
After this story broke, we dispatched our investigative reporter Carl Kolchak to
Duncan’s comments. According to Ms. Duncan “ The book must have inadvertently gotten caught
up in an estate sale.” Click For Mug Shot.
After the last grand reunion, Mary Ann Vlahos, widow of Paul Vlahos
(CHS'65) donated a near
pristine 63 yearbook, which we will auction in the not too distant future.

- A panic alarm,
always at your fingertips from Phil
Consider this. Most recent model automobiles come with a key fob containing a panic alarm button.
In addition to having your finger on this button while walking to and from you car; keep it close at
hand while around the house. These alarms can usually be activated from a considerable distance
from the car. Thus, be prepared to use it in the event of a home invasion. Leave it bedside at night.
Once activated, these annoying alarms can easily be heard from inside a closed garage. It is almost
guaranteed to frighten off an intruder while summonsing curious neighbors.
WARNINGS TO WARRIORS – from Smoke Signals medical advisor Dr. Vinny
Dowdy sends these words of advice to women, who may
experience heart attack symptoms
entirely different from men.
While not having eaten any
food, the feeling that you’ve swallowed a golf ball that’s slowly and
painfully moving down the esophagus.
Squeezing motions racing up the spine and under the sternum.
Discomfort spreading into the throat and jaw.
If you experience any of these,
first and foremost CALL FOR AN AMBULANCE! Don’t try to drive.
Don’t let someone else drive. CALL FOR AN AMBULANCE!!

Speaking of Jay and the Americans, we were,
weren’t we? The group, with
lead singer John Traynor, began as six classmates from
themselves “The Harbor Lites” In 1959, they released a local hit “Is It Too
Much Too Ask”. In 1960, they signed with record moguls Jerry Leiber and Mike
Stoller. United Artist wanted to name the group Blinky Jones and the Americans,
but Traynor convinced them to use his nickname “Jay”. In 1963, after their single “She Cried” charted
at #5, Traynor left the group and was replaced by David Blatt AKA David Black., AKA Jay Black. In
Oct. of ’64, “Come A Little Bit Closer” became their highest charting single at #3. They changed their
musical approach and began covering popular singles beginning with the beautiful “Cara Mia”, which
is probably their most remembered hit, charting at #4 in ’65. Their last single was a cover of the
Drifter’s “There Goes My Baby” in ’71. During their career, Jay and the Americans produced 10 singles
that charted in the top 40. Court rulings have prevented Black from touring as “Jay and the Americans”
but allow Jay Black and the Americans.

Depending on whom you ask, the term 86’d
refers either to the bartender’s practice of switching from
100 proof booze to 86 proof once the drinker is too intoxicated to notice the difference. Or possibly the
term originated during prohibition, in Chumley’s speakeasy at
that a police raid was imminent, the bartender announce “86 everybody” which meant that customers
were to leave through one door as the police were about to enter through another.
One hit wonder Bobby “Boris” Picket”, whose
