One of my favorite memories of Tech is attending assemblies in the auditorium. The Delphians, of which I was president, were asked to put on a skit for one of the shows. Since I had just broken up with my boyfriend, I suggested we sing, “I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Out of My Hair” from South Pacific. To my surprise, Rosalie Scott, Vice Principal, agreed to let us have water and soap on the stage. The first assembly went well, too well. We really got into it and soon water and soapsuds were all over the stage. By the second assembly the audience knew by our soggy appearance what was coming. The laughter preceded our singing. I don’t think water and soap were allowed again
