42.jpg (102100 bytes) 1915 Four Corners school, probably spring 1915. Hazel Paugh took the picture.  I am just behind the dark haired boy with his hand over his face.  Next to me is Zora Paugh, the teacher's little sister.  Elmer Nall is in front of her.  Herb is in the back, almost hidden.  Percy Powell is to the right of Zora, in the dark clothing. Perhaps some of the big girls in the back are Hathaways.  A rural school teacher had her hands full teaching 8 grades in a one-room country school - especially with a shortage of books!  A good friend of mine, who at age 16, started teaching in a rural school in North Dakota had no text books.  She taught from the Sears Roebuck Catalog!
