CLASS PROPHECY The nose lor news attracted some ol' the better journalists ol' mv class, and 1 saw .Ianice Nundav, llettv Ann Phillips, Doris Goble, and Geraldine llolshouser reporting lor various top newspapers in the countrv. Co-editors lor one ol' the largest were Kenneth Hullman and lfranklin Sloop. As l continued to gale into mv mirror, l saw a dramatic plav in action with llohbv Russell directing. lklulti-millioniare liarl l.ent1 was linancing the produc- tion, and starring in it was lxav Savage. ln supporting roles were Valerie Lawing, Ethel Patton, Margaret l'eterson, 'limmv lielk, Marvin Leonard, and Rav Petrea. The scene suddenlv sbilited. and for a moment I thought the pictures were over. Then l saw the beau- tillul rolling liarmland of Virginia. llobert Tavlor owned a coinpletelv moderniled larm, and D. and Ralph Cauble owned Ufaublcis Dairvf' one ol the best known in Virginia. Also in this section ol' the countrv l saw VI. L. Gibson and john Troutman who own a large stable ol' racing horses. Two ol' their iockevs, Buise Steen and jerrv Tillev. had won the lxentuckv Derbv. I saw that llennv YYright had his own ambulance service, and was eredited with saving ntanv lives. He was connected with the memorial hospital 1 had al- readv seen. Still enthralled bv this strange phenomenon. I saw that some voung ladies were proving that this is a woman's world. Annie Armstrong owned a huge cater- ing service which planned such parties as the wedding reception ol' New York socialite Mildred Allen. Katrina Cartner and Norma Chambers were some ol' the tnost well-known interior decorators in the busi- ness. Thev remodeled the olliees of Paul Tuggle, oil magnate, and the home ol' liillv McVVhorter, manu- lacturcr ol' nvlon hose. Some ol' the hot-rod drivers l saw in the liuture were Gene lftltlleman, Reese llradlcv. and lfrankie Combs. l then saw a view ol' Carolina lleach, with some ol' mv lornter classmates working there.

Leaving the beach, the picture changed to Paris. where l saw Theresa linslev, Ruth Adams, Geraldine Combs, and hlelvena Bonds designing clothes lor liasltion wise women all over the world, ln the soeietv world. some ol' the well-known debu- tantes ol' the dav were -lanet lluekwell, lanice Mundav. Phvllis liarringer, Iovce McCollum, and lilubv Edwards. Owning a girls' school for the elite young ladies, I lound Svlvia Dabbs and Carolvn Holes. lklanv eligible bachelors from A. I.. Brown High School still seemed to lind this lile exciting. Bill llolminette. Garv Deal, llarlen Phillips, and Bobbv Mullis were succeeding in eluding the marriage- minded lieinales. ln the music world. Don Compton was making a debut in opera, and llalel U'Kellev had the lieminine role opposite him. A large hot-house specializing in rare black orchids was co-owned bv Allllit' Clearv and Doris hliddleton. lfach llower section was directed bv such famous llower experts as Vivian l,owder, Geraldine Tarlton. l,eah liae Barker. and Valoree Shinn. Their main busi- ness came lrom Charles NlcYVhorter who operated a liashionable florist shop in New York Citv. 4 Under the big-top, some ol' the tnost liamous circus performers ol' all time were making their living in llarold Thompson's Three Ring Circus. Daphne Daniels, ,Iovce Dendv, Phvllis lihvne, Bettv Sue Pres- son and Maxine llartsell were billed as top bareback riders. Carolvn Teal and Peggv McDowell teamed up in the lion taming business. Flovd Fritz was watering elephants. Barbara Martin and liettv Carpenter had taught camels to do educational tricks, and Margaret Randolph specialized in a high dive into a tub ol' water.

Some ol' the personnel emploved by this companv were Wlillie Sutton, Virginia VVaggoner, llettv Honevcutt, and Geraldine Ilolsbouscr. I saw that lllondie llolbrooks had taken over the radio shop which had been in her lamilv for genera- tions. A boom to this business was the ingenius inven- tions ol' Doris Chandler, Peggv Beaver, and ,laequeline Candle. The professional librarv in New York was managed bv Alice Allman with the able assistance of Glatie McLean, Thelma Deal, Eva Mae VVilliams, and Helen Rushing. Two great novels written bv Carol .lean Suther and Ruth nUSL'l1'l2ll1 were donated to this institution. A women's chorus which was touring the world came into view in the mirror at this time, and l saw that its director was Eleanor Gulledge. A liew ol' the best sopranos were Lorene llelms, Iris -lean Dudlev, and llilda Ruff. Some alto voices included Gloria lloward and lklattie Lou Stancil. Gradv Price was the owner ol' the liirst National Hank in Chicago. This bank emploved Irene Roberts and Edna Staneil as tellers. Then all at once the picture faded and l came back to realitv. This was reallv line, but l had a iob to do, and the editor was waiting for mv lieature article on fashion. l'livL1.is Tuomvsoiv Proplieless l l Page Tliirlv-fivc
