Class Memories From 1970

My one attempt at humor ended up in the yearbook. I played one of the "Farkel Twins" for the senior play. the Farkels may well have been the inspiration for the "Steve Urkle" character of later TV fame.

I played "God" in Green Pastures, and "the wall" in Pyramus and Thisbee, but Mercy Hinton won the prize for best actor, but the James (Thurman)? led drama club really showed me the theater art when the play we did, reset in Fairfax from London, about a gift of a harem, crashed into a mess of forgotten lines! Thanks to the persistence of our stage manager, feeding us our lines from behind the curtain, the audience somewhat enjoyed the production, and the story was told.
Plays Posted: 10/24/2009
Our football team improved during my years, and in our senior year, we were close to championship status. However, one year, our Michael Turner QB'd team racked up a season total of 16 yards rushing. Still we won "The Bucket" from Anacostia and kept it each year, and Eastern became our nemesis, beating us 44-7 one year, and at our homecoming, another.
