How cheerleaders looked in the 1960s

Feel free to dismiss the whole enterprise as sexist, stupid and insufficiently earnest about serious issues. But it has to be said that once upon a time cheerleaders were not required to look like, uh, exotic dancers or blow-up dolls.

That does not mean that cheerleaders of that era were all exemplary young women. But it was a slightly more innocent brand of nonsense and one was less likely to encounter Scripture-quoting makeup monsters in stripper attire who honestly believe that what they are doing is important.
