I have been invited to review my school days and since anecdotes are permissible, I will give a couple that always stand out in my memory.


On one occasion dear Mr. Dodge requested some of the members of our expressive reading class, to take front seats.  The (they) refused to obey the command and a storm--ensued.  The principle actors were moved to tears but the supreme word was the law and all went smoothly on again.


The trip we made after ferns with which to decorate for the Senior respept jonalways stands out vividly, too.  How we were driven to the old mill for shelter from the downpour of rain.  We had not escaped it all, however, but despite dripping clothes, we thoroughly enjoyed the orange feast.  And as expressed in the verse taken from the class history.


"With drooping hats and dripping clothes,

     But hearts as light as air;

We rode through town, with shouts and yells.

     For the weather we didn't care."

                         by Mrs. K. W. Baker
