Memories of Fremont High School 1943-1944 (11th and 12th grades)
Kids I remember at Fremont (some were also with me at Roosevelt).
Catharine Bacon - she was another of my secret loves.
George Armstrong - the body builder.
Bob Elliott - he didn't like some of us from Roosevelt.
Ted Gould - my boxing partner.
Norm Ironsides - a football player.
Mrs. Ammarati - my English Literature instructor. We read Shakespeare's Edward II in her class. One of her favorite characters was Falstaff and his quote: "discretion is the better part of valor".
I remember the long hikes out Foothill Blvd. to Fremont - it was 25 blocks (2 ½ miles) one-way.
I remember the time the plane crashed just a block off Foothill Blvd.
I remember how my morale dropped to a new low during my final semester when I was classified 1-A for the draft even before I had finished school.
