School Notes
From Stratford Journal Feb 24, 1938
Herman Lueck finds out a lot of personal information
sweeping out the classrooms at night.
Some people think that if your put a skirt on a pump
handle, Charles Doll would pump all day. Johnny Aldrich
thinks that the best part of a nickel is three cents. Do you?
When we had our biology test last Monday, Elmer
Holtman, who sits next to Eugene Frankwick was constantly
looking at Eugene's paper. Finally Miss Panzenhagen looked
up and said, "Elmer, that's the fourth time I caught you
looking at Eugene's paper." To which Elmer innocently
replied, "How can I help it if I have to look four times to get
one answer?"
