George Reeves was a huge man, 6 feet 2, weighing 100 kgs. H ewas my teacher in the fith grade. In class,
he would suddenly shout, 'Silence'.
Then he would print in big letters onm the blackboard the word CAN'T.
Turning to the class, he woudl demand, 'And now what shall I do?'
Knowing what he wanted, we chanted back, 'Knock the T off the CAN'T.'
With a sweeping gesture, he would erase it, leaving the word CAN.
Dusting the chalk from his fingers, he would say,
'Let that be a lesson to you - you can if you think you can '
