School Story

Okay, I was a less than stellar student (but excelled at working with my hands). So Mr. Williams was delighted when I transferred out of his morning Biology class...only to be chagrined when I got re-assigned to his afternoon class. As I entered the room with my transfer slip he sighed, then introduced me to the class as, "King of the Dissectors," but noted that I couldn't tell one organ from the next.

One time I had to spend a week in detention. The detention was preventing me from completing an art project. So Mrs. Regan(sp?) wrote a pass slip that enabled me to spend detention in the art department instead of the detention room. That was pretty cool.

Then there was the time I got into a fight in gym class. I really didn't want to fight, but I bloodied the other guy defending myself. Later, my buddy Pete Merz said, "I heard you got into a fight with so-and-so. You better be careful. He can beat me up - and you know I can whip you."

I left ETHS in my junior year (1965) to join the army. Eventually got an MS degree in Design and have remained a derelict ever since.

Class of 1966 Trivia:
The class of 1966 has two members named Scott Miller. One semester we both had the same PE class. Our middle names are different so the coach called me "Scott C," and the other "Scott A." The ETHS alumni office has been sending "Scott A" mail to me for decades and only recently have I given up trying to straighten them out.

Haven't stepped foot in ETHS since leaving in 1965. Would love to do the tour, but can't make the reunion.

Roger was a small scrappy kid who grew up on Dewey near Boltwood Park, just up the block from Beverly Cook. We were buddies at Skiles and ETHS until I quit high school to join the Army and we went our separate ways.

We reconnected briefly a few years later in 1974. I lived on Fargo near the lake in Rogers Park - Roger was my neighbor across the alley! At the time I was in the Air Force Reserve, Roger said he recently left the Navy.

As kids we played poker and board games with our buddies, climbed trees, shot bb guns, hung out on Mount Trashmore, smoked cigarettes in the attic of my parent's garage, swam in the pool (Roger was a good diver), got drunk on straight whiskey, flew u-control airplanes, played spin the bottle with girl friends, blew up balsa models with fire crackers. All the usual stuff.

Long time ago, lotsa fond memories.

R.I.P. Roger

Was looking at old school pictures and realized Herbert Sobel and I were classmates at ETHS...and also Gale School in Chicago (3rd grade, probably 4th, and also 5th grade).

Third grade, standing beside each other in third row: Herb (4th from right w/bow tie), Scott (5th from right w/sweater).

Fifth grade: Herb (3rd row, standing 2nd from right), Scott bottom row, seated far left.

Still remember the time we went fishing with your dad...and how you turned green when he asked if you were smoking. :-D

Just curious: Are you the kid who lived down the block on Grey Avenue? Or, was your father Raymond Jones of AFTRA & SAG?

Even though my Tyros disappeared 46 years ago, I remember your entry:

The stork flew north
The stork flew south
And carried Scott in his mouth
When he found out he was a nut
He dropped him in the Miller's hut

Glad to know you're still horsing around!
