MORAGA, Calif. (AP) - Twenty-two students at St. Mary's College
of California have done something their predecessors famously did
50 years ago: cram into a phone booth.
Teams competed to fit as many bodies as possible into a phone
booth on the campus green Wednesday, a half-century after Life
magazine published a now-famous photograph of 22 St. Mary's
students stuffed into a phone booth, a popular college stunt in the
Current students matched the number in the 1959 image, though
they failed to break the campus record of 24 set in 1984.
St. Mary's officials say a South African team set the world
record of 25 set in 1958.
