Central's class of '56 has completed plans to establish the first city on the moon. As we all know. several months ago. dauntless rocket pilot Alan Miller. was the first man to land on the earth's satellite. paving the way for Centralville. He will also conduct the second expedition. On tack for this voyage are valuable members of the crew. Scientist, Marvin Zurcher, is interested in the scientific study of prehistoric people and wants to prove the new theory in evolution. Bill Kershner. plumber, has turned explorer and will assist flatfoot. Arlen Mitchel, in keeping peace and quiet on the moon. Arlen will be well armed with his little brother's guns. "Centralville will grow and flourish under a specially designed transparent dome," reveals Roger Habegger. chief engineer. This dome is to be made of the new Fos-Cermann material. which is now manufactured on a large scale in the Chicago factory owned jointly by Bob Fosnaugh and Paul C-ermann. financiers. Nancy Shoaf. an up-and-coming technologist discovered the synthetic material. To enhance the beauty of this city. Kaye Heare, wealthy heiress. plans to build a Solar radio city. Architect. Jerry Mitchel. has the contract for the golden structure. ln the entertainment field will be that dynamic women's wrestling team, Patsy Zimmerman and Joyce Tharp. Flash! We interrupt for a bulletin: From Daytona Beach comes an anxious request. Another famed female team. Hot Rod racers Nancy Parrish and Mary Jane Rice want to know if there's a chance to establish a race track there soon. "We are making this voyage for the good of posterity." report Dr. Gary Ringger and chiro-H practor Lowell Michaels lof the Richard Rowden Memorial Hospital. named after the famous surgeon Richard Rowdenl. They are all set to establish two new Moon clinics to take care of the aches and pains of the pioneers. Sonja Schug has received the required amount of training in America and England to teach moon-pupils. Sonja thinks she will start with the kindergarten "darlings" ln order that the new city will have its legal problems taken care of, Larry Lautzenheiser is prepared to establish a branch law office of the firm of Lautzenheiser. Lautzenheiser, and Lautzenheiser there. Renowned scientist-editor Paul Riley tfounder of the Monroe Howl. first newspaper established in the Class's alma mater city! will publish the first edition of the Solar Snooper in June. Likely to make front page news then is the wedding of Costa Hike and Dick Landis, who plan to spoon while living on the moon. TV expert Merlin Habegger has arranged publicity plans for the event. and the Rev. Larry Meyer will officiate. First clothing manufacturers on the moon will no doubt be Sharon Hirschy and Marjorie Becher. designers of Non-Ravel Playsuits. Also traveling with the idea of selling staple goods on the new frontier is Harold Dick, ex-musclernan, who is taking along his Ready-Mix Manufacturing tub, which has taken him far in the Ready-Mix Foods business. While we're on the subject of food. we would do well to mention Marilyn Arnold, famed cook, who has packed several of her pickle recipes. She solemnly says she will take only the best. Of course there will be need for doughnut dunkers such as Carolyn Christener and Tom Hoffman-if Gene McKean. baker. and Dianne Liechty. chief doughnut counter move their successful machine to this new city. And here's good news: They will supply the Jims' Restaus rant with fresh-baked delicacies. The co-owners of the place. ,lim Fisher and ,lim Weaver, prom- ise good eating at any phase of the moon. Additional features of Centralville will be Carol Egley and Kenneth Baumgartner's beauty salon-and the successful Haugk's Super Service. A greasy business, Haugk's is run by Mary Haugk, a tricky grease gun operator. Both establishments should go far. Agricultural advisors will be a necessity on the moon because of the limited amount of fertile ground. Dee Myron Byerly and Richard Kaehr, who have both received many honors in the United States for their knowledge in the field. have volunteered to shoulder this tremendous task. At the moment they are packing and examining different types of soil testing kits to see which kind will be most suitable. Already signed up for the journey are several persons who really believe that variety is the spice of life: Karen Snyder says she craves adventure and wants to look for strange birds. She has a huge feather collection and is tickled pink at this opportunity. Mountain climber Palmer Inniger is hunting special picks and ropes to withstand the tremendous heat of the moon's day. His desire is to explore the moon's North and South Poles. Jerry Sprunger, famous hypnotist, feels a need to be carried away, so he has paid in advance for a first class ticket. So plans are completed and the Class of '56 is ready to take off. We wish them well on their new adventure-and wonder what Centralville will be like twenty years from 1966!!
