Examinations to-morrow and I am exempt in everything! So were Bill and Bud - I guess we were the only three in the class. I had an awful hard time finding out my deportment grade - its the only thing that ever bothers me. When I asked Mr. Lease for my deportment, he said they weren’t being announced yet! But I got ahead of him for in the fourth period Miss Laird told me I was exempt in Latin so my deportment had to be up.
