Scottsville School

High school was a tougher place back in those times, too.  People didn’t — I don’t think they really worried about your feelings that much.  I mean, our teachers, a lot of them growing up, they had fought in World War II.  They were used to getting shot at all day.  They weren’t worried too much about a 15-year-old, your personal space and your feelings and that sort of thing.  When Daddy said do it, if you didn’t do it quick enough, something’s going to happen.  I guess it just wasn’t part of the thought process.
