Caption written by Kenneth Iyeki: "This is my wonderful history class (under the grandstand). The entire school was housed under one roof with no partition between classes. There wold be so much noise that one day we, weather permitting, the teachers would [?] their classes out on the grandstand where there would be less noise. The wall partitions which appear as a blackboard one merely [?] which hide the openings which were [?] used as [?]. I can imagine all the money that passed from packet to packet in my history class. Sort of makes it hard for one to concentrate on what Aristotle did thousands of years ago."

September 4, 1942
