Re: Vicki Hawes—When I returned home from Korea and arrived in Oakland Army base for discharge, my first collect phone call to my parents was assisted by Vicki Hawes. Although we were six years out of Covina High, Vicki remembered my voice and said, "How are you doing Dane and welcome home!" She was a directory assistant and living in the Oakland area then, in December 1974.

We Colts get around.

Sorry, Dane Haas will be on a European vacation visiting his son who will be working at eight resort hotels throughout central Europe.
