  • Great picture of “Slasher” Eales. Just the way he always looked to me from the war years to 1949. I consider myself fortunate to have received some of my education from this gentleman. He taught with discipline where classroom rules were involved, with reverence where the scriptures were involved and with dedication and strictness for all other instruction.  I am convinced that any time spent in his classroom, and out doors, was helpful in preparing his students for their future lives.  He was a very strict educator yes, but I, for one will never forget him.
