1965 Chizzle Wizzle Celluloid Advertising Pin Back Button

The picture shows a view of this 1965 Chizzle Wizzle Celluloid Advertising Pin Back Button. The pinback pictures a hat, a banjo, a tamborine, and a microphone. It is marked:

MARCH 23, 24, 25, 26, 1965

This pinback is believed to be from an annual talent show held by the Cony High School of Augusta, Maine. The years for this 74th annual pin add up with the information below. The following is some information from their website:

''In 1892 a group of Cony High School students who were determined to have a football team, organized the "Chizzle Wizzle Association" to raise the needed money. Little did these pioneers know when they produced that first show that they were carving a niche for themselves in the history of our school and our city; Chizzle Wizzle is now a time honored Augusta, Maine tradition.

The student organizers of this event overcame many obstacles on the way to staging that first show. The Augusta Board of Education ruled that it was improper for Cony High School to give a public entertainment for money; therefore, the students could not use the school name, or its facilities. Undaunted, the students went ahead independently, naming their show "CHIZZLE WIZZLE" after a popular school cheer.

"Chizzle Wizzle! Chizzle Wizzle!

Cony High! Cony High!
Rah! Rah! Rah!"''

The pin measures 1-3/4'' wide. It is in near mint condition with only very faint light wear.
