D.R. Taft was an intiminating school superintendent. Even the well behavied students tried to avoid him. fortunately, the principle, Miss Anderson, was nice and provided a buffer zone for those who got in trouble.

One day, I encountered Mr. Taft in the hallway. He was carrying a large pipe wrench. When he approached me, he said, "Here's a loose nut that needs tightening". His assessment was correct.
