It had been there most of the day and by the nighttime it had collected many black flies in the hot sun. It was covered actually. Toward the end of the day and into the early evening in the Iowa countryside they had collected a group of 49 women and given them 49 tee-shirts of 49 men to put on. The men hadn’t worn any cologne and the initial wash of the tee shirt was with unscented soap.< Less
