Bill Seaton thought it was unfair those Wyeast High kids were getting so much attention, so he sent us some more images from cross-valley rivals Hood River High School from the same era. This was his "Office Practice" class, where presumably you learned to operate much of the equipment we have in the archives of our museum, like typewriters, mimeograph machines, intercoms...

Okay Bill and Buzz I shall let you name them, even though I know the vast majority, with the exception of that one standing next to Bill's mother. I have to claim that one..... I wonder where he got that horrible shirt! Makes me shutter.
That is Penny Raycraft sitting there with the glasses. She is my sister-in-laws sister.

as one who knew some of these folk, some were in this class not for the learning but for an easy grade and no homework. my least favorite machine in this class, the next year, was the fluid duplicator.....the good old days were not in the printing business...…….thanks Bill for digging out the photos!

I would add that there were some teachers some of us would mess with....not however with Mrs. Seaton

I am not so sure about the easy grade, because Mrs. S. would not just whizz someone through, right Bill? I think it maybe had more to do with that is where the girls were!!!!!!!
