Default DELTA QUEEN entertainment 50 yrs. ago

Found these photo's in a recently discovered family album. They're pictures taken aboard the DELTA QUEEN when my family was on vacation in the mid-50's. Talk about "downhome" entertainment, mostly all audience honky tonk piano, no redhot mommas, no band, no dancers, just folks using themselves for entertainmnet. It was all organized and run by Mary Greene, Jane's sister who was Tom and Letha's oldest daughter. But we looked forward to gathering in the dining room each evening, it was fun, and it didn't cost the Greene Line a dime.
1. Hot Legs contest. That's my dad at the far left..he won.
2. Pass the Match Box. Usually teams of three of couples and they would have to pass the match box to the end of the line without touching it.
3. Find the Lady. Ladies would throw one shoe in the pile and the men would have to grab a shoe, find the owner and put it on her foot.
Yes, it was hoakie, think it would work today?
