1964 Senior Wills From the Ebb Tide

We, Louis Hickl, Joe Kalas, and Dan Miller, being of no mind and shaking body, will our ability to go to Tidehaven
to burn their "bonfire" only to have them waiting for us, to anyone crazy enough to do it next year.
I, Dan Miller, will to Carla Leadford, my ability to send something to KILT and not get called to the office about it; and,
to Freddy King the full can of gasoline and matches I used trying to burn Tidehaven's bonfire.  Good luck!
