Leo Hess resigned his job as care-taker of one of the
class-rooms. He was asked by J. Kenyon what the
reason was and remarked: "I'm honest, I am. Whatever I find when sweeping I always turn in. The

the Highest Common Divisor,' and last night it said,
'Where was the gold discovered ?' They'll think I took
them, so I quit; I'm honest."
In Some Cases

Dutch: "Yes, but not there."
Bevo: "Where are they, in your feet?"
Dutch: "Some people's brains are there."
Infirmary Blues
invalid's song
Infirmary blues go to my spine,
I'm painted up with iodine.
And all night long I lie awake,
And think about the pain and ache,

So I composed this little song,
And when I hear the class bell ring
I jump with glee and start to sing:
