Opa’s report card: almost satisfactory

Opa Mueller’s report card for the first semester of his second year at Concordia Milwaukee was a bit short of Lobenswert (Praiseworthy, an A). His math and German grades were Unbefriedigend (Unsatisfactory). Nothing was entirely Lobenswert, although he came close in his marks for deportment.
