Dong Show

Citation: Maria J. Hoffmann, ed., "The Dong Show," Grindstone (Berea, OH: Baldwin-Wallace College, 1977), p. 183.

On Tuesday, the eighth day of February 1977, the wind was howling, the ground was saturated with snow, and admidst all this cold, wintery weather one building on campus was filled with laughter and smiles. This building was Emma Lang Hall, and the laughter was from the Dong Show, which was a talent contest.

The entertainment consisted of eight acts, each performed with vigor and talent. The acts ranged from the "Rocky Racoon" to the group of male students singing and playing guitars. One song was composed by one of the members.

Judging the contest were three college Deans, who decided on the top three acts to win prizes, which were children's toys. First prize, a plastic guitar, was won by a small group of Lang girls, who performed a 1940's skit called "In the Mood."

The contestants hope to see the Dong Show return next winter, when snow and cold temperatures once again begin to dampen the spirit.
