HERE IS THE SECOND COLLECTION OF HIGH
memories, beginning with Dorothy Slate Baxter.
I remember my high school days with great
pleasure. We had so many dear teachers, who took such an interest in
each one of us. One teacher that really helped me was Miss Easterling,
or Easterburg, as we called her. I took two classes, in succession, from
her one year. One was dramatics, then English.
Dramatics really helped me, as I was so
shy. After that year, I wasn't. Dramatics was the first period class,
and it was held in the room at the top of the stairs facing east and
south. The kids would be raising Cain, but when they heard her coming,
they sang, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf," and Easterling
stepped in. There was no more foolishness.
