Hooten Leads Rebels To Hershey Win
DCN Aug. 8, 1962 issue

Hershey, Pa., July 7 - With a rousing "Rebel Yell" and "Wild Bill" Hooten to boot, the Yankee Rebels of Baltimore, Md., surged past the West Reading "Buccaneers" by .734 of a point to win first place here tonight at Hershey Stadium.

Third place went to the Pittsburgh "Rockets", followed by the Conn. Hurricanes and Salamanca Black Knights in that order.

CONTEST HIGHLIGHTS:
Both Rebels and Reading have plenty of G.E. throughout their entire show . . . Hurricanes sporting new uniforms and looking very flashy . . . Pittsburgh's soloist, one of the best in the business . . . Much talk of the previous contest out here, but all corps conducted themselves like perfect gentlemen at retreat, etc. . . Strange thing - No official tabulators and no breakdown sheets until the managers appeared at the meeting following the contest. Chief Judge Brady and Mr. Green of the "Chocloteers" to be complimented on efforts . . . Nine members of the "Rockets" dropped following their show . . . "Belles" of St. Mary's turned in sparkling exhibition . . . Ditto, host corps . . .

The Scores:
Yankee Rebels .................... 87.800
Buccaneers ......................... 87.066
Rockets .............................. 86.566
Hurricanes ......................... 82.350
Black Knights .................... 76.983

Due to the fact that I am copying these articles *verbatim*, a *photocopy by hand, if you will. I need to make a couple quick corrections on this writers work.

The *Wild Bill* Hooten referred to here... correct spelling is *Hooton*.
And the host corps is/ was the Hershey *Chocolatiers*.
