American History in Photos

Nothing is quite as wonderful as “almost” grown-ups when you are young … and nothing is quite as lamented as the lost innocence of youth when you are grown. For this little girl from Shelby, N.C., last year’s state basketball tournament was a time of wonder. Basketball tourneys mean cheerleaders, of course, and at the age when making the “A” Squad seems the pinnacle of feminine ambition, well, even being permitted to do up a lace or two has special meaning. MAR 1978
