They grew to be big as the catfish. The water was very clear. We enjoyed watching them swim.

(Sometimes the senior boys would initiate a freshmen boy by throwing him in the pit). There was only one way out, There was a pole in the pit that led to a window in the cafeteria. The problem was the seniors would sometimes grease the pole to make it harder for the poor freshman boy to escape. Sometimes the boy would be trapped in the pit for hours before one of the teachers or Charlie Moore, the janitor would find him.

Regarding the teachers 53 picture--the teacher on the right "looks" a lot like Fred Cody. He taught my sixth grade class (52-53) at "East Side School". Richardson was a new school three years earlier during my third grade year. I think Harla Turner Nalls sent this sixth grade group picture in and it is already posted.

There was a Mr. Cody, but the teacher I think you are talking about was Miss Cooley--my sixth grade teacher at East Side. She was not married.

Hi Sherry...Yes, that's me (I know "I" is correct, but it sounds weird. I am wearing a skirt and blouse and a light weight, button-up-front sweater. I am third from the left in the front row. James Rhea helped me with this and we do not know the adult on the front left. We think that's Harol Lynn Turned in the letter jacket , then me, then Judy Braswell, Edna Lowe, Elizabeth Turner in the fuzzy collar and Sandra Carson one of the loveliest people I ever knew. We think that's Margaret Perritt on the back row, cannot remember the name of the fella next to her, tho we both recognize him...then Llewellyn (never could spell that) Cook and then Sammy David. What is this group? I hope this gets to you okay, I began and answer, then got interrupted and now the words "original message" are floating all over my typing. J. R. just said he think that the person I thought was an adult is Judy Gleason.
Jeannine Mobley Love Class of 1956
That "adult" on the front left is I, Judy Gleason, probably the most
immature girl in school.
