These were our big brothers and sisters. I knew many in that class including my lifelong friend Webster (Webb) Grimm whom I first met as a young boy of 6 or 7 when he and my older brother Len were involved in a local boys club known as the Lynx Club. (It was my first experience with  a text copying process known as the "Hectograph;" a jell laid in a flat 8-1/2 x 11 pan that receives type from a typewritten page and permeates the gel which results in a duplicate page with purple ink text. Years later I again became acquainted with Webb whe he made one of his visits to Miss Louise ("Ouise" Baird's 1420 Hamilton Avenue apartment, where Judy and I were nightly visitors. Webb was Ouise's insurance agent and Judy and I signed up with Webb for our home insurance which we kept until he retired. Such pleasant memories!
