"Sixteen of the seniors claim the distinction of having parents or grandparents who also attended Chilocco. Mr. Louis McDonald, father of Cynthia McDonald, and Mr. Frank Garen, father of Cladue Garen were at one time members of the class which became the first graduating class. Other former students whose sons or daughters are in Class '39 are William F. Harjo, father of Viola Harjo: Albert Waters, father of Alford Waters; Bertella Longshore and John Carnes parents and Annie McKinley, grandmother of Lavona Carnes; Byrd Jackson, mother of Hawii Jones; Henry Rattler, father of Heber Rattler; Paul Little Eagle, father of Leota Little Eagle; Thomas B.

Some of the current events around the year 1939 were:

France and Britain declare war, German U Boat war, Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, John Steinbeck wrote "The Grapes of Wrath." The film, "Gone With the Wind was Released." Nylon stockings were around and, radar was used in Britain.

There was total war. Civilians remember watching their homes and families being destroyed in air raids. There was extraordinary suffering of the peoples in war.

Churchill declared "We will mete out, and more than they are meting out to us."

In WW II, fire bombs, air raids, and finally the atomic bomb killed millions of citizens, leaving many more homeless.

Now back to Chilocco. This is out of the Whose Who of Chilocco.

Lucille Big Goose. Four years at Chilocco. Y.W.C.A. Epworth League. Museum Society. Pepper Upper. She practices the slogan of "A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest of men."

Cynthia McDonald: Seven years at Chilocco. Indian Dramatics Club. Girls' Trio. Pepper Uppers. Home Economics Club, Hobby Club, Museum Club. A versatile girl, is Cynthia, because she can add to her other interests that of being a good pianist. She claims to agree with Edison that "Success is 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration."
