From the 1943 Mar-Ken Primary & Junior High School Annual:
David Staton wrote the following for the First and Second Grade section of the Annual:
A Little Verse Miss Ross Taught Me.
Good, better, best
Never let it rest,
Until good is better,
And better best.
Some of my likes:
Flower – Pansy
Color – Yellow
At School – Draw, color, arithmetic.
Show – Puppet Show.
Poem – Three Cheers, Three Cheers
Three cheers, three cheers for the red, white and blue.
I’’ll always be brave and always be true.
So wave pretty flag, with your colors true,
Wave on pretty flag with our red, white, and blue.
