1949 jr high school yearbook

I met a lovely woman, Gladys Rosenstein, who shared this with me.
She said that in the yearbooks at school in the late 1940’s people would write this to each other..it was a popular poem.


Smile, for when you smile,
others smile
and soon there will be miles of smiles
just because you smiled…..
so smile!
