To the editor:
As promised, this week I am quoting from a June 9, 1926 Ledger.
I recognize few of the names and assume it does *not* include pupils in all the 58 rural one room schools.
“According to school census, there are thirteen pairs of twins in Fairfield between ages of 5 and 21.”
1906 Laura and Elizabeth Long
1907 Ada and Fred Smith
1907 Verle and Merle Hagans
1912 Delbert and Elbert Buttery
1913 Justus and Justine Webb
1913 Marjorie and Margaret Rodenmayer
1913 Elizabeth & Juliette Crabbe
1914 May and Mayne Stinson
1914 Hazel and Delmar Taylor
1915 Frances Louise & Ernest Switzer
1916 Helen and Howard Streed
1919 Merle and Mildred Ullrich
1920 Howard and Jack Mehaffey
It did make me wonder how many twins are in our current system. Also how many children in each grade, and average
number of children in each current classroom.......14 or 24? Does each classroom have the teacher plus one full time helper?
Statistics we never get to see published. Anyone want to share for all of us to read?
