CLASS PROPHECY Tonight I sal down to watch the T. V. program, Memories of the Class.” Every Saturday night now for the last ten years this program has featured dif- ferent high school groups. I have dreamed that our class would Ik on someday. Maybe tonight is the night. The announcer l egan talking. Charles Drake — there’s a classmate who finally won a battle with himself. During high school. Charles look Chemistry and he always wanted to try his luck at putting Sodium in Water. Well, he finally did and we haven't heard from him since. I wonder what kind of a reaction he got. |im Sinclair has gone to Antarctica to establish a million dollar fur Hading company. Jim is still a bachelor but he is keeping his eyes open. Virginia Sprague has obtained a Nobel Literature prize for revising the book Written on the Wind.” It is now called “Scribbled on the Breeze. Ginny has also written a three act play which the class of 70 will present at the old High School. Larry Groff and Doug Murray arc the Martin and Lewis” of 1970. They have their own television show loo. I’m sure some of their classmates have seen them. They always did like to fool around in school. The foreman of the Elevated Shoe Co. Inc.” lo- cated on the corner of Bond and Wardwell streets, is Meredith Barrett. By the way. she uses these products that her company manufactures. Richard Flaherty also had big plans for his future in Mathematics. We see that he did carry them out to some extent. He is now working on the statistics ol how many miles the average tramp walks in 71.97 hours. Kay Wright finally married Jerry Quencer. Dur- ing her senior year she did keep us busy guessing though. She and Jerry are living in Brownville. They have quite a large house but then with their six children they need a good big one. You have the honor of having one clergyman from our class. He is Richard Prouty, Chaplain of the United Stales Senate. Right after he graduated from high school he started in on his climb to success. Carol Chalmers is still called the Renowned Traveler of the Class of ’57.” She is not married but is engaged to Jimmy Pratt. They expect to l e married on December 32. 20000. Carol never did believe in rushing things and she still holds to this idea. We see the Navy has (hedged out Sandy Creek so that Admiral Wilson Rusho can sail his ship up Spring Street instead of walking three times a day. Wilson was very interested in the Navy hack in high school. Nina Belloff has a love lorn column in the Jeffer- son (jtounty Journal. Askt 4 what was the surest way to get a man, Nina replied Write letters. This is what Nina did all through high school. By the way she is still looking for a husband. Coach Alan Wagner has the winning croquet and (crochet) teams at Podunk High School in Alaska. We hear they are all very fine sportswomen. A1 was al- ways very interested in all kinds of sports. “Miss America of 1960.” Yes. you have the honoi f having a classmate who became quite a popular [ gal. Pat Smith won her contest after starting as a private secretary to a well known architect. A tall, blonde haired, blue eyed girl does make a nice Miss merica. Pat. You all remember Rae Greenley as having an extreme interest in sport’s articles. He has now climbed to world fame in the sports world. He refei- ees women wrestling matches in Madison Square Car- den. I hear he has quite a rough time. Barbara Shean is incorporated in the K.F.A. of Belleville with Bob and all the Little Bobs. Bath always kept us wondering back in high school. David Smith was always very quiet except for the times when he had his father’s car. He is now a test driver for Roquette Inc. in Utah. I hear he is pretty good too, for he got a lot of experience driving around Adams. You also have a famous spoits star in your class. Coralyn Corky” Scofield now holds the title of scor- ing the most baskets for the United Stales team. I hose games you played at old A.H.S. did help, didn't they? During his high school days. Steve Millard's two ambitions were to stay single and to continue his study in Electronics. We see he has accomplished both for he now lives in seclusion on the planet Mats, where he owns and operates a Hi-Fi station. Susan Sullivan is now private secretary at the Ford garage in Adams. There she can Ik with Ted Murray all day. Back in school Sue was always busy with her studies so she didn’t get a chance to see him verv often. I guess she's making up for lost time now. George Smithlcr has Finally completed a four year course at Syracuse University in the last ten years. He now manages the C.B-C.-Cobbville Broadcasting Company. Our Houghton college graduate. Sharon Widrig. is now conductor of the Air Force Symphony at Thule. Sharon has lost her shyness by working with all ol her Air Force musicians. Our perfect couple in high school was Ellen Dor- gan and Robert I .a Lone. Bob is now head of the (.rand Union chain while Ellen takes care of her own little union. Marjorie Badgley Taylor now a fashion consultant for Christian Dior has a little trouble keeping up with the fashion she creates. If the hemline g K s up any farther she will Ik able to wear her old A.H.S. cheer- leading uniform. I he late Helen Nowak went to Africa to educate (lie cannibals on the art of Nursing. They tried the scalding procedure on her. This seemed appropriate as she was always in “hot water” in high school. We had a very difficult time finding George Wet- terhahn. He is now a newspaper correspondent foi United Press to Russia. That is, he was the last we knew; for now he is in a concentration camp in Si- beria. I wonder if he works as hard now as he did hack in old A.H.S:? All the waiting and watching and finally my dream came true. Tonight was the Memories of the Adams High School Class of 1957.” What a program!
