One of my HHS memories was the yellow songboks we used at Assembly. They would definitely be politically incorrect now! Hymns (God forbid!) and Stephen Foster songs with words that would be inappropriate today but were in common usage at the beginning of the 20th century. The school favorite seemed to be "A Capital Ship"; the pianist must have been sick of it by June!

Wish I could be there for your program - could you put some excerpts on this blog??

"A CAPITOL SHIP FOR AN OCEAN TRIP WAS THE WALLOPING WINDOW BLIND. NO WIND THAT BLEW DISMAYED HER CREW OR TROUBLED THE CAPTAIN'S MIND. THE MAN AT THE WHEEL WAS MADE TO FEEL CONTEMPT FOR THE WILDEST BLOW OW OW, BUT IT OFTEN APPEARED WHEN THE GALE HAD CLEARED THAT HE'D BEEN IN HIS BUNK BELOW.
SO, BLOW YE WINDS HI HO,....."
