Prophecy There are few girls in our class who do not admit having gone, at least once this year, to the fortune tellers in Boston on their Saturday leaves. Whether palmist, tea-leaf reader or crystal gazer, we all were eager to hear what the future held for us. To satisfy this mass curiosity we are holding an imaginary Senior meeting, and as our guest we shall have a crystal- gazer who will tell us how she sees the Senior Class of 1947, ten years hence. Ah ! She speaks . . . " As I gaze into my crystal ball I see the former Ann Aulis married and settled down, diligently reading government pamphlets on dairy farming which were put out by the Research Department headed by Pat Carroll, and writing the sequel to her last novel, the best seller since " Forever Amber. " Literary critic, Maud Savage, in her review is busily banning it in Boston. " My crystal is getting hazy. . .now an army camp comes into sight. Edith Flather is briskly drilling recruits. Inside the canteen DeeDee Olivers is giving an exhibition of that old fashioned dance, jitterbugging, while hostess Marion White passes sinkers to the as- sembled soldiers. Army wives Jane Lewis, Peggy Kimball, and Joy Kolins can be seen from the outside with their noses pressed against the window glaring at the entertainer. " I see strange unfamiliar lands in my crystal ball. Diane Gould, who superintends " Basselt ' s International Tours " is conducting through Europe the eager Class of 19.57. Passing through Paris, they see Hester Dignan madly painting the portrait of the Austrian countess, Barboura Flues. In Ireland they meet the former Skeeter Pierce, Lois Derby, and Bunty Goddard, all dressed appropriately in Kelly green. " lm-m-m-m, there seems to be a magazine taking shape in my crystal. The pages are flipping over slowly. . . on this page I see a plan for a very tempting meal with accompanying photographs. The reader is assured that it must be good as it has the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval from their chief dietician, Beverly DeCesare. In the index I see the prize win- ning novel in serial form written by the up-and-coming authoress, Carol McLean. . .1 read that the lovely gowns pictured on this page were created by the versatile B. J. French. . . across the page I see " She ' s engaged! She ' s lovely ' She uses Pond ' s, Joyce Huntington of

New Rochelle. " Here is an article telling of a national poll and naming the former Barbara Dean as one of the ten best-dressed women in the country. . on this page I see a full page color advertisement for shampoo " just right for ' strawberry blondes ' " modelled for by the former Dolly Sharp, now known as Chicago Cassie. ... On these pages I see portraits of well- known socialites: the former Barbara Turner, wife of a " promising Congressman who is ably following in his father ' s footsteps " ; the former Cynthia Austin, " gracious Southern lady entertaining at her sumptuous tobacco plantation " ; actress Janet Mclvor of the Broadway hit ' Aye, Lassie, ' and Sally Humason who is " wintering as usual in Sarasota. " " Now I see a narrow passage of water and among the meads by its bank, keeping up the choir tradition, I hear the former Jane Brown singing " low bridge. . . on the Erie ( ' anal " (Erie, that is). I see red; crimson permeates my crystal. It is clearing and I see the Harvard Campus and Sue Robbins, now married to a Harvard professor. She is pouring tea in her Cambridge home for her visitor, Gerry Treadway, now grey haired and bespectacled from her years of study for her Ph.D. in Philosophy at Harvard and writing articles for Time in her spare hours. They are talking about Ann Clemens, Congresswoman from Wisconsin, who has been making the headlines lately by delivering stirring speeches in Washington on the merits of her state, and of their plans to hear Janice Cole at Symphony Hall that night in the premiere performance of her violin concerto. On the way to the concert I see them go into a smart dress shop owned and managed by Joan Karelitz, where they run into Emily Gierasch who has come into Boston to buy a dress suitable for the Faculty Tea she is having at her home in Andover the following week. Expected to be present are Chris von Goeben, new head of the Math department at Phillips, Alden Obering, now head of the Spanish department at Abbot, and Helen Dowd, wife of the headmaster. " The scene changes to the Vermont countryside, Putney to be exact, where I see Jo Campbell and Margot Meyer, who is visiting her from Burlington, lumbering along in a truck on their way to help Nancy Hamilton harvest her fruit. En route they come upon a bus from Peck ' s Transportation Service. The owner alights proudly displaying a new medal for defeating Barney Oldfield. " Now the skyscrapers of N. Y. C. are taking place in my crystal. In the merging traffic we discern a careening cab, at the wheel of which is recognized Ann ' Mac ' Chandler, coon- skin cap pulled low over her eyes, incognito, studying life, as background for her next great epic poem. In the back seat we see " life " in the form of B. A. Mitchell and escort. Seemingly blinded by the hat, ' Mac ' barely misses a ladder leaning against the Four Roses Advertise- ment. On the uppermost rung I distinguish Donna Kinneman calling across to Lo White perched similarly on the Camels sign opposite, " La. . .1 did not know they were attached so firmly. " " Around the corner on Broadway they whiz under the marquee where Nancy Brum- back ' s name is prominently displayed in lights. " Pulling up to the curb is a huge limousine, and I see the former Pat Jaffer and Mary Emery disdainfully regarding the N. Y. plebeians as they gingerly make their way to " Tuck- er ' s 21 " whose motto in gilded letters greets them at the door. . . " Well kids, you may think you ' re sophisticated, but. . . . " They gaze through a haze of smoke and see Mouse Morse Carmichael at the piano accompanying the sultry rendition of Sylvia Lyford ' s " Kerry Dance. " Dining at a nearby table, I see the up-and-coming journalist, Jean Ritchey, awaiting an interview with the world travelers, Carolyn Sackett and Millie Kreis, recently returned from Europe. They bring news of Virginia Eason, recently married to an Indian, Dartmouth variety, and converting the heathens of Oklahoma. The smoke clears and in a corner table we see Jean Marsh, Mackie Hall, and Nancy Barnard. Jean regales Mackie and Nancy with tales of Marblehead where she has been spending all her spare time. Mackie is buying her trousseau, and having a last fling before settling down to married life, while Barnard fills in the lurid details of her permanent romance. " " Now I see a blank and then a book slowly appearing. It is grasped by two well kept hands. The book is " The Lost Week-end " avidly perused by our own N.J.S. " On these words the meeting is adjourned. ( " P.S. I see Ann Aulis, Carolyn Sackett, Helen Dowd, Jean Marsh, Diane Gould, Jane Brown, Edith Flather, Nancy Scripture, and Mary Emery voted nine of the ten most beautiful women in the world; Lena the Hyena being the tenth.
