Young Elvis came to Dermott AR, when I was in the eighth grade,sponsored by the Southern School Assembly. It cost an unbelievable .50 to see him, usual price was a quarter. One performance Friday afternoon and one Friday night. Monday when everyone came back to school, they got their money back because the superintendent had talked with the SSA and told them that wasn't the kind of entertainment his students were supposed to see.

Well ya got to see him for free. I have a friend who saw him on the back of a hay truck at a supermarket in southern arkansas. He was only about 3 at the time he was with his older brother who had to drag him along. He couldn't remember what town it was it was in . His bro has been dead for years so he'll never know now where it was.
