Phone booth stunt just like old times

Friday, March 27, 2009

MORAGA, Calif. -- Twenty-two students at St. Mary's College of California have done something their predecessors 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 popular college stunt in the 1950s.

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.
