A couple of things from my first grade. I went to Crayton, although we used to call it "Crayton Elementary Public Penitentiary". Standing in line one day to go into the classroom, I learned there was a difference between suicide and murder. We talked about a lot of stuff with the other students.
It was also the time for the Presidential elections between Kennedy and Nixon. Us kids decided to do an informal poll of the students. There were some stairs separated in the middle by a railing. If you went down one side, you for Kennedy. If you went down the other side, you were for Nixon. Stanley Hammer was in charge of the Kennedy side. Jim True and me had the Nixon side. Nixon won by a landslide.
Amazing how things would change.
