Sulphur and grease? Oh please!
Our teacher, Miss Farley, was a strict disciplinarian whenever it came to good hygiene.
Almost “squeaky clean” herself, she checked us out thoroughly each morning before classes began. An un blown nose or dirty ears could earn you a big, fat “F” on your report card and send you trudging homeward with a warning note to your mom. And, since busy farm mothers didn’t take kindly to such goings-on, this whole, sordid affair usually concluded with a good licking from a persimmon or sassafras limb.
