From the Aug. 11, 1966, issue of The Vidette: FORMAL POLE VAULTING -- Youngsters in the neighborhood of the City Ball Park wanted a place to practice pole vaulting, so they recently built themselves this set-up near the baseball diamond. Going up isn't too bad -- some of the boys have almost cleared 10 feet -- but coming down is a mite rough without the foam rubber supplied in high school and college pits. The pictured vaulter is Wayne Rutledge, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Rutledge, 825 East Elma, who will celebrate his 13th birthday this Friday, July 15 (sic) -- without any broken bones, he hopes.
