CULOTTES, MORE THAN A FASHION STATEMENT
Finally, in 1961, I thought it possible to wear pants to school. It was difficult to detect that my new culottes purchased at The Standard in DeRidder, were actually pants and not a skirt. Mother agreed - the Principal did not. He announced over the intercom: "Joelle Smith, would you come to the office immediately!" I had to go home and change clothes before being allowed to return to school.
