LIFE presses, interrupting our plans to libel Sarah Palin--more of an experiment to see if it's theoretically possible to do so than a sense that she needs any help--but we wanted to help disseminate the story of the minority children whose Day Camp had paid a Philadelphia area swim club for the privilege of swimming there one a week, only to find themselves tossed out when their fully-developed tans so early in the season shamed the regulars, who are merely red of neck.
Which is, of course, a terrible, terrible thing to inflict on children, but fortunately the president of The Valley Swim Club was there to make his dirty, uh, duty, clean, uh clear:
"There was concern that a lot of kids would change the complexion … and the atmosphere of the club," John Duesler, said in a statement.
Fortunately the children got a new place to swim out of the deal. God knows it's guaranteed to be a better one.
