The URL and the site name are listed in sentence #2 of this topic.

One might assume, as the copyright date is 2004 and it is now January 2008, that perhaps the site is now out of copyright. And, as we all know, you have no problem promoting items created from out of copyright material.

Please do not derail this topic, meant as something special for Elvis Presley's birthday anniversary.

c) Rose worked for years over this "little" publication and as I noted (you didn't) Note all monies received for the book will go toward the cost of printing and to charities only. Elvis would approve,
I hope that people on this board do e-mail Rose to ask about a copy.

Great post!!!


I struggle with believing this one though:

Bobbie Horne Mitchell



We lived at Faxon and Stonewall. Elvis Presley and I were good friends and he liked to come over to my house because my mother would make him toasted cheese sandwiches and his beloved peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

After graduation, when Elvis was beginning to make a name for himself as a singer, I received a phone call from Miss Ginny Allensworth asking me to come over to Humes and help Elvis with his English because he had been invited to sing on the Ed Sullivan Show. I laughed and said, "Miss Ginny, Elvis wouldn't listen to me when we were in school and I doubt if he would listen to me now."

I did meet Elvis at Humes and he agreed to let me coach him. After talking for a while, he said, "Well, if you are so intent on helping me, why don't you come to New York, too, to be sure I do it right." I ended up backstage at the Ed Sullivan Show and got to see Elvis perform.



I just wonder how many Humes High School students, jumped on the "I was his best friend, I was this and that etc."

Can we have an Elvis History Section where threads like these can go in .. that way they won't get lost in the other pages.

I ask for a separate section, on this or that, every day.

These requests always go unanswered.........................

Fingers crossed Colin .. I know the Picture Section has some fantastic history stuff in sometimes but maybe it deserves it's own.

I found this rather intresting reading overall, Thanks for posting all of this Doc, other wise I wouldn't have know about the page.

I do have a copy of the 53' year book in my collection, tho it is nice to see something on the internet as well.

Piers I'm sure the Doc didn't mean any harm and he did provide the original link, whatever he did here I do it all the time too and maybe you do as well, not sure.

Nevertheless its all good everyone had their say :wink:

What I would suggest Little Darlin is starting a new thread in the off topic section with a "pole monitor" to get feedback, explain what you would like to see, an if there is enough interest we would look at it.

Otherwise...ahem... Great topic Doc. Perhaps some folks may have wanted to jump on the " I was Great friends with Elvis way back when" band wagon, but these memories seem sincere for the most part.

No, he didn't put it there.

But he could have taken the following actions:

1] Ensured that the crew on lookout duty had access to the binocular cabinet [the officer with the key never set sail on her].

2] Slowed the ship down, or stopped [like other ships did] after he received the ice warnings.

3] Given his orders more clearly. [When he instructed "Women & children first" at least one officer thought he meant "only" with tragic consequences].

Thank you. It is enlightening to realize Elvis was amongst the poorest of his classmates, and they all knew it. From such humble ambitions are grand dreams born.
