One cold morning in January 1966 we hopped aboard a rocket ship that
was destined for the thriving metropolis of Alden.
Upon landing, who should we see but Marlene Gabel riding in a u66n
Buick Convertible with her ermine flying behind. She tells us that she
is on her way to her horse ranch in Baroda.
For some reason there is an unusually large crowd in town, but we
soon learn the reason. It seems Grizzly Guenther of the Ozark Jubilee
and his partner Judy Casebolt, who is the star clarinetist for the Jubilee,
are performing in the town hall. We are anxious to see our two old friends
again, so we buy tickets for their performance. The ticket sellers are
Barbara Ramsdell and Sharon Kleven who attend the University of Bull Run
where they are cheerleaders.
Who is that distinguished looking gentleman? Oh, now I know! It is
Professor Johnson who teaches bacteriology at the University of Minnesota.
He has his M.D., D.A., P.O., B.C., and B.O. degrees. Why, there's Norman
Emerson! He is now business manager of the Rockefeller Estate. Three of
our old friends are acting as ushers. They are Anne Jensen, Dorothy Streyle
and Cathy Troska. As Anne leads us to our seats, she tells us that she ls
a soloist at nJoe'su in Blackhawk Junction. She also tells us that Dorothy
is the secretary of City Hall in Armstrong and Cathy is the nurse and
receptionist in Dr. Nelson's office.
Well, what do you know! There's little Beverly Nash, but she isn't
little anymore. She is now 6' 5U and is now star center on the Flying
Blackhawks Basketball Team. Are those two fellows that just sat down who
I think they are? Sure they areg none other than Orville Simonsen and
Russell Sorenson. Orville told us that he is a big game hunter and that
he has just come home from Africa. Russell is a uranium hunter. He just
returned from Tia Juana, Mexico, where he found about S10 worth of uranium.
That cowboy that just walked in looks quite familiar. Why it's
Hopalong Opdahl, the star of the new western movie produced by MGM, Indian
"' Anita Teufert and Charlotte Smith just came in and are walking this
way. Anita is a cartoonist at the Mansfield Gazette. Charlotte is a big
dress designer in her fashion shop in Conger.
What is Dennis Jacobs up to? He says he is a missionary to Walters,
Minnesota. He said that he had just seen John Rasmussen and that he is
now Captain of the Rawhide Ramblers Football Team.
The class of U56N is really having a reunion today.
Here come two more celebrities! Allan Petersen and Harlyn Schewe
are tap and toe dance actors in their latest movie Soft Toes and Hard Heels.
Last but not least we see Virginia Conn come in with her shorthand
pad. She is secretary of the Radio and TV Repair Shop in Alden when she
isn't campaigning for Stevenson.
Well, what do you know! We have been so interested in talking to
all our old friends that we talked clear through the performance. I
guess we'd better get back to our rocket ship.
