The obvious guess is that the older couple is Adam and Susan Langle. Some of the boys in front are probably Everett's brothers, and I would guess that the little girl at right on the middle row is Louanna. Does that make the baby with Jennie Everett?

Everett and Liz

Everett remembered playing for the Shrine team in 1938 or 39 -- he said that when they played the "Catholics," which I guess was probably another fraternal order in Salina, they got licked 20 to 2. The other team had a catcher who was a substitute for a professional team, while the Shrine pitchers were all about 60 years old. (1/20/2002)

     In 1949, Everett, Jeannette, Ben and Liz drove to California. The kids stayed with Florence and her husband in Long Beach, while Everett and Jeannette went to a convention in Los Angeles. Ben remembered two things about the visit: first, either he or Liz ate something new and came down with a bad rash, and second, Florence's family had television, the first they ever saw. On the way, they visited Carlsbad, the Grand Canyon, and Las Vegas. In Las Vegas, they were walking down the sidewalk past a casino and Everett disappeared briefly. He slipped in one door, played a slot machine, and came out the other door with a handful of silver dollars.16
