my first memory of a television in a classroom,was 1970. I went to St.Marys of Mt.

They would tune in for maybe ,one program during the afternoon. But my favorite memory of television in school was that spring, we all watched Chicago Cub

next to the rectory, there we a fenced in playlot, along Racine Ave. It was called the priest play ground. Never saw any priest out there. We lived on 79 th. and Elizabeth Ave, across the alley from the Bulko gas station. We would walk to the play ground with our dad. We moved out after the blizzard in 1967,it was a long time ago, but I have many memories of that neighborhood.
