Ladies and gentlemen, The Beatles!
In this Feb. 9, 1964 file photo, The Beatles perform on the CBS "Ed Sullivan Show" in New York.

Out of place
Kirstin Copenheaver, 15, cradles a doll with teammates Tessa Bassett, 16, left, and Baily Brubaker, 15, during a swim meet at Central York High School Wednesday, January 8, 2014.
