Our boys are having dreams. They think this is the end. What's this they see? St.
Peter's Pearly Gates. And there seem to be lots of familiar faces--who are they? Why
of course, it's the Class of '54 Reunion.
Here comes a floating body towards the gates. Why it's JIM PAYTON all dressed
in a tattered suit. He went broke manufacturing campaign buttons.
Next to arrive is JANET BUTTERFIELD who was an income tax expert. She always
did fill out a nice form.
-1LAVONNE BARTELS, who lived a quiet life, enters peacefully--Life as an old maid
is quite boring, you know.
Records indicate that after IRVIN HINZ died, angels had to be sent to earth after the
body. He was a deep sea diver, and the angels found he had been leading a group of
Z0, 000 mermaids. He was naturally rather reluctant to leave.
JUDY REEVES was one of the most successful songwriters of her day. Even yet her
latest hits are still on the hit parade--titles are: "Get the hammer, father, there's a
fly on baby's head" and "Don't try to move the juke box, maw, you're too old to carry
a tune. "
Oh, here comes an old member, VELDA RICKELS. She was a sword-swallower in
Ringling Brothers' Circus for many years. During one performance she pushed the
sword way to the end of her and sure enough it was the end of her.
JUDY WEIGHELS and ROSEMARY NEWHARD retired from the Niles Theater's chorus
line and moved to the country. They think there are more mink coats in farming. They
have already made two startling observations that will revolutionize farming: l. By
teaching chickens the Charleston, they can secure fresh scrambled eggs. Z. By milking
the cow upside down they can get cream without using a separator.
"HUEY" DENNISTON took over his mother's beauty shop and specialized in false
hair for men's chests. He made the only false hair containing chlorophyll.
, MARY ANN MCADAM was a famous linguist in one of Anamosa's newer organizations,
the A. S. F. P. M. -Anamosa Society for the Preservation of McAdam she specialized in
French, Latin, Assyrian, and Profanity.
RON REMINGTON, the noted star of stage, screen and radio, entertains the angels
with his singing nightly over station H. E. L. ---- ?
RITA BRADY and JANET LUTZ had such success in their intensified home economics
course that they were chief cooks at the Grill.
LYNN RICKLEFS is supervisor of penmanship in a Detroit public school. He has all
his women pupils going in circles.
MAMYE PERRY is really in the dough. She works for St. William's Bread Company.
DONNA MITCHELL, stalwart defender of women's rights, led many crusades against
the gov't. She complained that she cooked all day long over ahot stove while her husband
satfin a nice cool sewer. She restored the 100-hr. week for all working men.
Continuing our look around the United States of Heaven we take you now to Hollywood
where that famous commercial artist, NANCY WAITE is chief artist for M. G. M. studios.
Her main task is to paint freckles on Arthur Godfrey.
JOHN MARTENSEN worked up to be chief bouncer at the "Stork Club. " Worked up is
not quite the expression, John weighed 427 pounds when he entered heaven.
GARY WHITE, one of the most distinguished in his class, became a judge. We are
