(AP) — Harry Truman and Bess Wallace were good studcnls — but ah, that Charlie Ross! Charlie, says Mrs. W. L. C. Palmer, was brilliant — the best student she ever had in her Latin and mathematics classes at Independence High School. He became a famous newspaperman and press secretary to the president of the United States, his school chum. Ross died in 1950. But what about Harry? "I knew Harry would amount to something," said Mrs. Palmer. "1 knew he'd make his mark, but I never thought he'd be president and Bess the first lady." Mrs. Palmer, a petite and sprightly great-grandmother who looks like everybody's favorite teacher, is 89 — just 0 years older than the former President and Mrs. Truman. Truman introduced her from the platform recently when he participated in the dedication ol the Truman High School in In dupemitnce. Monday, svUlng the living room ot her Victoria style home, she talked of Ihos days when Hurry and Jioss — and Charlie Ross — were in he classes. "Bess was n popular girl. She always had lots of beaux, but she knew whom lo choose. "Harry says they were sweethearts from the time he met her at Ihe Presbyterian church mid that, they were sweethearts in high school. Hut I didn't know it then. I guess he never kept company with any other girl. "Harry was always reading and always was trying to keep up with Charlie — and lie did a good job of it. Uess was an excellent student too." Mrs. Palmer taught at Inde pendonce High for four years then had to retire because slu married Palmer, the siipcrin lendcnl of schools.
