The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector on this date 42 years ago:

Jokers earn 'A' but 'F' counts

A student apparently "fell" out of a second story classroom at Norwalk High School Thursday, it was learned today. He was uninjured and got an "F" for failure.

Five boys asked their study hall teacher if they could use her room on the floor below to prepare for an exam. While they were "studying," one of them returned to the study hall in a rush to ask her to come quickly as there had been an accident.

When she arrived at the room, she found a window open and a student holding a shoe explaining something to the effect that, "I tried to grab him but he slipped right out of his shoe."

Rushing to the window, she looked down and saw the youngster in a fantastic position on the ground below. But when she scrambled down the stairs and out on the grounds, he was gone.

It was an April Fool's joke, of course. The boys got a severe reprimand.
