"I Remember" piece by Pauline Gray (as told to Philmore Wass) about her days tea
"I Remember" piece by Pauline Gray (as told to Philmore Wass) about her days teaching at in a one-room school in South Addison in the late 1930s and how her attempt to bring some merriment to the school during a Halloween party almost backfired. On the day of the party, Gray's sister, Virginia, burst from coatroom into the classroom dressed as a scary witch, complete with brown skin, long nails, green fangs, and astride a broom. The children were all genuinely horror stricken and sought to find an exit from the room, with one little boy, in his fright, actually wetting his pants. After Gray got the children reassured and calmed down, they were able to experience some of the fun she had intended for them have in the first place.
