Handkerchief Shower

It was the early 1940s and Mom was a sophomore at Bruce High School.  The principal, John Fisher, was called to go to war.  The students at the school, grades 7-12, had a "handkerchief" shower where everyone brought kerchiefs.  They hailed Mr. Fisher off by singing "You're in the Army now!"
