Welcome to new reader from Germany !

My father was German and only spoke German until he started school in Wisconsin.  His first day at school he began speaking German and the teacher promptly started hitting him with a stick every time he said something. English only was the school rule. He was never terribly fond of school after that so he quit as soon as possible to own his own dairy farm. If I had been a little smarter I would have bought the farm from him and forgot about going to college at MSOE.  My life would have been happier and I would have more money at this time.
