Actually, I use the Class A at my visits to the Metropolitan Opera (not
really). The Class A, B and C are still around (and not just with old timers).
I believe you might find them listed in the Boy Scout Song Book.
I still hear it now and again. Always introduced it in my troop as a
Scoutmaster. Do not be surprised if you hear it around a campfire at Philmont
1-2-3-4,1-2,1-2. 1-2-3-4,1-2,1-2. 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4, 1! Bully!! That's a Class
A with a "Bully." The "Bully" was our highest accolade in Troop 242 in Roslyn
Heights, Long Island, NY in the med & late 50's. The "Bully" harks back to
Teddy Roosevelt's favorite exclamation (and Roslyn is quite near Oyster Bay and
TR's home and Sagamore Hill). How about "How-How" as an accolade. That one
actually goes back to Seton and hsi Woodcraft Indians.
Bully for the Class A I say.
