Title Whatever Happened to the Class of 1924
Description room provided ample apace for the class. She turned next to the graduation picture of 1924. Nine boys and twenty girls made up the class total. Only ten of these students were in the original kindergarten picture. "Where in the world did we lose the others?" she mused to herself.
