My roommates, suitemates and I all put $5 in a hat with the lowest number winning the pot (the money that is) The 9 of us all gathered around the TV for the "big" drawing. My number was 215. I don’t remember when the number was drawn. I just remember the youngest one of us, a freshman, drew the lowest number……#5…….the best I remember. He won the money, $40 which in 1969 was a lot of money. He was devastated…..called home crying.

Pitt County NC filled its quota long before it ever got to #215.
