This the first year that the two sister Faith and Ruth Kurtzweil came to teach at West High.  I took Spanish with Ruth and sit next to the windows.   She had flower plants suspended by the windows.  I and a couple other boys would wind up the pots and then let them unwind when she came back into the room.   We never got caught but she only laughed.  What a teacher but for the life of me cannot recall a single Spanish word.  Len Granger 1950
