"basement" was the word we used in elementary school in the late 1940s in

New Orleans. The school actually had no basement, but the restrooms for

the girls and boys were on ground level at the rear of the building

beside the short flight of stairs that led out the rear of the building.

Like Keith, I went to school about the same time Natalie did -- actually,

a few years earlier (1st grade 1946). This is the first time I have ever

heard of "basement" for bathroom (my perspective is northern Illinois).

Until Jr. High school, it was always "bathroom" ; my parents used "biffy"

(which is a no. regionalism, according to DARE) but I never picked it up.

In early adolescenece, some of my male peers got daring and used "john"

and "can."
