The purpose of this primer is to instruct and train the pupils of this school in the funda-
mental principles of learning.
Teachers, pupils, etc., lend me your ears
Before this primer drives you to tears,
Donlt get angry and rant and shout,
just because you are rather noticeably pointed out.
Smile and bear it for you know that no harm is meant.
So grin and read on, and if youlre threatening-relent.

Betty makes them pound the typewriter to
