                                                       I'm a Jay-Jay-J-J-Jayhawk!    (3/6/89)

       The month of March would always bring out the basketball fan in Alice!
       To pay homage to her Alma Mater, here is the University of Kansas Men's
       Basketball Schedule.  Just click on the link:


        Alice and C.H. were Jayhawks at heart, even though they lived in Michigan
        and considered Kalamazoo their home.

        They attended the 50th Anniversary Reunion of the K.U. Class of '39 in '89.


To learn about how Alice and C.H. got from K.U. to Kalamazoo, please visit
