Earl and I were friends Starting in 1939 at Grantsville Grade School. We had grate times in both class and on the play ground. One of us would bring a rope to school and play "tug of war'." Once Paul Powell, the Principal, put us in chairs along the chalk board. Earl rolled a marble across the chalk tray. I rolled it back. We did this several times and Mr. Powell caught us. We got a paddling. I moved away in 1944. But came back occasionally to Grantsville. We took dates to the Kanawha theater but enjoyed talking to each other we forget our dates. Eal was a wonderful man..
