I have a set of very old composition books on loan from my friend, Judge Sara. One of them has pages and pages of songs on “health” with each one arranged to fit tunes from popular songs. Songs such as “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “Onward Christian Soldiers,” “Let Me Call You Sweetheart,” “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” and “Ain’t Gonna Rain No Mo.” There are also songs for Thanksgiving and Christmas with tunes from “Abide With Me” and “Juanita”; and a spring song to the tune of “Old Black Joe.” The name on the front cover reads Miss Clio Youngblood. I remember a teacher by the name of Clio Votaw. I always thought her name was spelled Cleo. I believe she is one and the same. I believe she was a sister to Mr. Joe Youngblood, who was a mail carrier for many years. There is no date on the composition book but the pages are yellowed and brittle. . . .
