MEMORIES: “One day in school Prosper Van Tassel…was doing antics behind the teacher’s back. The boy behind him took the cork out of the ink bottle, and when Proppie took the bottle and put it up [into] his mouth like he was going to drink it, the ink flowed all over him.” -Jim Brosious, as told by son Jerry.
