This Day in History: 1941-02-08
Publicity for the school entertainment on February 28th included the promise of the appearance of these star acts from school No. 7: “A woman sawed in half”, “The Human cannonball” “The Siamese twins” and “tight walkers”. The eighth grade was to give a jitterbug exhibition. In School No. 2 in Mahwah four Grade 5 students collaborated in making a poster for the occasion. George Blankenburg drew a “fine looking Scarecrow”, Louise Kloster and Garry Cook supplied straw for the poster and Sophia Malewski donated hair from her long braids.
