glass Bprngpnlhsrg It is customary for the class prophet to consult someone who can unveil the future and fore- tell the destiny of each member o the senior class. First of all we seek the Muses. We beg each, but all in vain. Not a sound is heard, save the steam hissin from the radiator: surely that cannot be an answer to our imprecations. Suddenly one of them spogke. "What's that?", we cried eagerly. She was gone, but we remembered one word, "Summus". That was the guy we had been wantinig to consult all the time. We fell asleep, as usual, in American History class and made our irst call on old man Summus. Upon arriving at his kingdom, we stated our business briefly. He introduced us to his son, Morpheus. He stepped to one side and motioned us to follow. We noticed as we went out that Morpheus picked up a kind of hom. As we walked, Qfor we were gloing out into a beautiful dgardenj, he turned the horn directly toward us. From the vapor whic issued therefrom many ings began to take place. The vapor seemed to curl in a peculiar manner until we made out these words: 1952 Alton High School Graduates in the year 1975. Imagine our surprise when we saw a man whom we should know, why he's a United States Senator from Kansas. Coming closer we saw he was none other than Junior Pratt who is now compaigning for his long awaited dream of becoming president of the United States, although he has not announced the party with which he will run. We were also surprised to find Sibyl Cooley as his very efficient secretary and she said that when Junior became president, she would be first lady of the land. At this jimcture the scene suddenly changed, and we found ourselves in New York as the N. B. C. television studio, where a pretty TV sin er ap ears, who we find is Madeline Stanfield. She is married to her fourth husband. She toldg us of, Terry Dibble, a noted author and critic, who is in England at the present time. The vapor seems to envelope us completely and different places whisk by us in rapid succession and we're able to see only a part of them. We find ourselves in Cambridge, Mass- achusetts before Harvard University when a dignified professor of history came down the steps. He was none other than Gerald Smith, who had married a former Osborne girl. He said at the last census taken, he had six sons and two daughters. The scene then changes and we see a big theater with Bates in the limelight and who should it be but Mrs. Max Bates, the former Gwenda LaRue, who is running a roller skating follies with her twelve children as stars. The scene changgd again and we found ourselved ina little town in eastem Kansas by the name of Miltonvale. hen we cross the street, a streetcar hit us and they rusedh us to a doctor. When we came to, we found the doctor to be none other than our old classmate, Marvin Dimond. Marvin took us home to dinner, where we met his charming wife, who teaches in the college there. He told us of another classmate, Mrs. Betty Couse, who hves in Salina with her five girls and one boy.

We, then, saw Gayle Carsvvell, owner of the largest Angus ranch in Osborne County. He is happily married and has a large family. Then we saw Vern Swank, Pastor of the Bloomington Community Church, having married the former Dixie Williams. Movin a few miles west, we saw Jackie Stephenson, still single and farming in partnership with his fatlgrer. He told us of Marjorie Bales, formerly, Marjorie Cox, who with her husband and family of two are farming south of Alton. Morpheus suggested that I, Florence Marie, watch closely for next was to be my fortune. After a few years of study, I saw myself in Woodston, and old maid English teacher, who loved cats. Morpheus suggested that I, Warren, watch very closely for next was my fortune. Isaw myself a grizzly o d sheepherder in'the Rocky Mountains, herding my sheep with my faithful dog, Lassie. The vapor thickened and then vanished and we saw a beautiful Colorado Hereford ranch were Mary and Emery lived with their six children. The vapor then took us to a night club in Los Angeles, where we found the owners to be Merlin and Nelva Grimes and their t ee children. They told us thet Maurice Swank was the commander of the Wave base in San Diego. Then the vapor began to vanish and we thought we could hear the beating of a drum. We realized, suddenly, that it was not a drum at all, but our heads and Mr. Voss was rapping us vigirously and protesting against anyone going to sleep in his class. Feeling rather abashed at what had just been reveale to us. The remainder has merely been an everyday occurence such as writing the prophecy, with that, classmates, we beg to leave each of you to your fate and may that fate be kind to you.
