What teacher in the 40's could never remember any students name, so when she wanted one to put the homework sentence translated from Latin on the blackboard would look around the room to see if anyone was looking at her and point to them?

I only ever did one sentence of translation from the homework, and would only look at her when she wanted that one on the board, the rest of the time I was 'busy' correcting the others without looking up.

I believe that would be the legendary "Tank" Ballard, whom we heard about from "Island Hermit"'s father.
