Engulfed by Paper -- April Fool's Day, 1970
"The joke this April Fool's Day was on Gerald Miller, a history teacher at Gompers Junior High School, who is shown buried to the waist in the results of a prank arranged by his students. After Miller left the school Tuesday, his students crumpled up hundreds of newspapers and other pieces of paper and packed them into Miller's room from floor to ceiling. The students then hung a large sheet of paper inside the door to hide the pile of paper. When Miller opened the door to the room this morning and broke the paper shield, he was engulfed by the crumpled paper. The students were not fools either — they obtained the permission of the principal before undertaking their April Fool's stunt."
[Madison Capital Times - Apr 1, 1970]
