THE DE-O-WAIN-STA "Tell me about your school life," I said. "I had the pleasure of having my mother as my iirst teacher, as she was an instructor at the two-roomed country school which I naturally attended," he replied. "My mother's classes occupied one of the two rooms of the schoolhouse. She taught the primary grade and one of the upper grades. The second room was used by the remaining upper classes." "What sports did you and the other boys enjoy?" I asked. He smiled and replied, "It wasa case of the survival of the iittest. The boy who was the Strongest and could use his lists to the best advantage was the acknowledged leader of all the games. This was most likely due to the lack of supervision. However, we played all the playground games that never change and still exist today." "Tell me what your attitude toward school life was at this time," I asked. "Because of the atmosphere at home," he replied, "school became everything to me. I was always at home in school and never had any thought of leav- ing it." Y "Did you always live at Woodhull?"

Also at this time, many high school professors were not college graduates, so when one of my former professors entered Syracuse University I was further impressed. In 1902 I entered Syracuse University. This was the same year my former professor graduated." "Did you work your way through college?" I asked. 'AYes," he replied, "although I had a small amount of outside help. It was because of money difiiculties that I was forced to leave college for one year. This caused my graduation to be delayed until l907." "Is it possible for any able-bodied boy or girl to work his or her way through college?" I inquired. "Yes, it is possible for any boy or girl to work his or her way through col- lege, as there are plenty of opportunities to do so.
