In 1968, the Moultrie News had taken a strong hold on community news coverage. In June of that year, the front page featured Thomas Harrell Barr, William Winston Miller and Summie Thomas Worley as graduates of The Citadel.

Col. Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken visited Mount Pleasant May 16 as a special guest of the South Carolina Chiropractors Assocaition Spring Convention.

In addition, Moultrie High School named their JV Cheeleaders for the 1968-1969 football and basketball seasons, including: rising freshmen Linda Dayhoff, Ruthy Kirchner, Robin Thompkins, Joy Shuler and alternate, Debbie Kimmer. Rising sophomores included Linna Burke, Wanda Collins, Tina Psaras, Gwen West, and alternate, Carol Cannon.

Sadly, the parents of Warrant Officer Robert G. Johnson received word their son had been wounded in the leg while flying a search-and-destroy mission near Chu Lai, Vietnam.

He had been in Vietnam since November and was the son of Captain and Mrs. E.L. Johnson (USAR RET) of the Isle of Palms.

And oddly enough, some fashion trends come full circle. Check out these tips from 1968.

ďHeading back to campus? Here are a few fashion tips gleaned from Mademoiselle Magazine and some Slender tips from Carnation to keep you in shape for the year ahead.

Itís the year of the multi-look and the multi-length, with jackets rising as hems drop. Whether you wear a mini or a midi, assemblage is the key and separates add up. Youíll be all set for class in tuck-in tops with dirndl skirts, like a shirt-cuffed sweater with the plaid dirndl and wide, wide belt.

Belts are everywhere and they range from chains over scarves to wide crushable leathers to cords tied at the waist.

The turtle is tops Ė plain in a salt-and-pepper Donegal tweed, or patterned with mitered stripes with the belted knit pants. Vests are very in, especially those made of leather.

With all the belted, sleek, slim looks, many coeds will decide itís the year of the diet thing. College-living can put on pounds in a hurry. The solutionís simple though. Keep packets of Slender, Carnationís handy diet food, in your room and in your briefcase. All you do is add 8 ounces of whole milk for a satisfying 225-calorie meal with a delicious, fresh milk flavor.

Nutritious, too. Itís a great way to start the day before hurrying off to class and just the thing for a quick between-classes lunch to keep you in shape for those groovy fall fashions.Ē
