From the archives: A future for old hula hoops

A photo from The Star’s archive. The date is illegible on the clipping, but it looks like it reads Dec. 1, 1962. What’s your best guess?

A future for old hula hoops - If the hula hoop fad wanes, children in Coffeyville, Kas., show what might happen - they started spinning them in the other, time-honored way, along the ground. The idea is fostered by a Coffeyville manufacturer who made hula hoops, but rapidly converted to producing the pushers designed to roll them.
