JF The Wolverineli 1 933 I Senior Class Prophecy Dear “Bishop”: May 31, 1945 lust docked in New York about two weeks ago after finishing up my latest job of reporting on the Geneva Conference and have bumped into so many of our old classmates, I simply had to write you about them. But first, let me congratulate you on your latest promotion—don’t work too hard even though you are the head librarian at Simmons College. I saw a number of our friends in New York and different cities on the way down to the old home town. John Peter Saul and Isaac Andrews are joint editors of the New York Times and they have chosen as associates two old classmates, Betty Martin and Ruby Turner. I could not resist calling upon them and they invited me to lunch with them the next day. Imagine my surprise when I arrived at the Hotel Astor and found the table laid for twelve. I could hardly wait to read the place cards. The first one I picked up was Margaret Eutsler’s. Seeing my surprise, John Peter said: “I suppose you know Margaret is starring in the latest M-G-M picture, Lavender and Old Lace. The other stars in the cast are Beatrice Draper, Virginia Hodges, Alma Carr, Bill Slough, Elsie Black and Ruth Crockett. Horace Hood is directing, assisted by Layne Poff.” About that time the other guests arrived, led by a stately gentleman, none other than John William Barnard, who is teaching math at Columbia University. While eating, we discussed some more of our classmates. Frank Lewis Hutson is simply tearing up Hollywood. His latest picture, The Sheik, has won him a place as Valentino’s successor. Roy Coleman is teaching English at Harvard. Harold Carper and Theodore Compton won fame in solving the “Dog and Cat Mystery.” When it rains it pours, sure enough, for lo and behold when I tuned in on WLW that night, what should I hear but “Jack Frier announcing for the famous Jack Oakey Cigar Hour, featuring Alice West, soprano, Lucille Voci and Paschal Stoutamire, comedians, and the Singing Cecil Sisters, Ella Mae, Beatrice, Louise and Margaret.” I stopped over in Baltimore several days and heard loads of gossip—most of it out at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The head nurses, Nellie Pierpont and Thelma Poff, were hopping around in a swivet because Olive Collins had eloped the night before with one of the most promising young surgeons on the place and they were sending Frosty Martin and Lillian Nash, who rank high as nurses there, to the most impossible places to find another surgeon to operate on a special patient, who I found out later was Lewis Dawson, head of the Ducky-Wucky Incubator Manufacturers that you have been hearing so much about lately. Frosty told me that Ethel Carrol and Ora Wilkinson were holding down positions as secretaries in the Firestone Tire and Rubber Corporation and that John Cheatham was down in South America in charge of the rubber plantations of that company. Spending a week in Washington, I was thrilled to hear that participating in the conference for the benefit of the farmers were Jack Austin, Marion Dyer, Gordon Ramsey, Junior Showalter, Herbert Thomas and Robert Byrd. Nancy James and Thelma Garst have gotten together on their Latin and are teaching there in Central High. Nancy was absolutely ga-ga over Otha St. Clair’s latest book, Faint Heart Never Won Fair Lady and told me that she saw in the paper that Laurie Tyler is directing athletics at Notre Dame. Ross Stevenson and his colleague, Mary E. Martin, have just won an im¬ portant case in the Supreme Court of the United States. The renowned Sarcastic Weekly has for its editor our old friend, Garrison Wood, and the chief news hound is William House. Ben Pillis and Alex Leonard are such close friends of the President of the United States that they have been appointed to the highly coveted positions of head elevator boys in the Washington Monument. In Richmond, whom did I find as speaker of the House of Representatives but David Hitt with Emily Williams and Elizabeth Wertz as his secretaries. Among the Senators were some we know—

e Wol verine 1933 B. C. Horne, Edward Morgan, Billy Morgan and Woodrow Pillis. Mary Elizabeth Clarke is married to a millionaire and lives there. She had a delightful tea for me. Among the guests were Lenora Hart, Mildred Gardner, Thelma Givens, Elizabeth Henderson and Omega Poff. I can’t remember their married names. They told me that Page Mann is now in Paris and that Time of last week had a wonder¬ ful write-up of his latest painting, which threatens to rival the Sistine Madonna. Eunice Taylor is teaching French at Richmond College where Mamie Duffey is teaching History. I saw Edward Walker’s Circus—Mildred Worley, now an accomplished aerialist was the featured star and Alvin Garrett ring¬ master. While there I was delighted to hear Walter Garrett’s Orchestra, which played for the dances at Randolph-Macon. Annie Goodwin was an added attraction as vocalist. I met Emma Hunter Maxwell who has recently married one of the judges of the beauty contest in which she won first place. Well, after so long a time I arrived in Salem. I’m staying with Frances Shields. She’s married to a wealthy man from New York and has a lovely home just outside of town. With Frank Mowles as Sheriff and Richard Burke as Chief of Police, the old town looks like new. Wesley Towe is President of Roanoke College and George Goode is Dean. Speaking of deans, Frances said that Rome Schlater Johnston is the Dean at Vassar, where Mary Divers is teaching. Dulcie Graham, Eva Custer, and Claudine Foutz are running the Crazy Crystal Beauty Parlor of the new Robert Martin Hotel. Leona Dew and Howard Price have a darling little English house in the Langhorne Place. George Eades is now manager of the Salem Creamery and Wilburn Gearhart is Secretary and Treasurer. Willard Crosswhite is the newly appointed Game Warden of Roanoke County. Picking up the Music Critique yesterday afternoon I casually glanced over several pages but read every word of America’s Greatest Opera with increasing interest. Imagine how delightfully surprised at the end to see the signature “Dotty Garst”! I was so glad to be in Salem when our Alma Mater had its annual Alumni Banquet, because we old “Grads” had such a good time together. Vannis Kinzie, Principal of the High School, presided, and the main speakers of the evening were Lewis Thomas, President of the Farmers National Bank, and Frances Garst, now a famous poetess. Wish I could go into detail about everyone who was at the banquet but I won’t have time so I’ll just say a word about each one. Helen and Ruth Wood are social service workers; Katherine Hurt and Alice Martin are running a Gift Shop. Remember that big case up at the school between Ozella Butts and Murry White? Well, it’s materialized and they’re married. Lynwood Sowder and Tice Conner own one of the largest drug stores here; Virginia McGrady, Frances Moran and Eleanor Hen derson have opened a kindergarten; Robert Bowman is the President of MacBain’s store in Roanoke; Robert Willis has deserted Salem to join the navy and is now on a cruise in Havana. Joe Voci has taken Miss Wood’s place as teacher of Spanish at Salem High. Lillian Garland, Reynolds Keister, and Elon Martin are chief operators in the Bell Telephone Offices, in Chicago, and are home on a vacation. Helen Tyler is directing athletics at Hollins; Emily Williams, Margaret Zeuhlke and Helen Wetzel are giving daily classes in home nursing at the Salem Auditorium; Lolene Young won the State Championship this year in typing. Elizabeth South has added to the fame of “Ole Virginny” with expert permanent waving. Hester Weaver is secretary to the Town Manager while Beulah Huffman and Vivian Prince are in the office of the County Superintendent of Schools. Frances Minga, Hildah Poff and Bettie Dutton are very popular and successful Counselors of the Girl Scouts. The above paragraph sounds like a city directory, but I knew you wanted to know about them. Must stop now as we are going to hear McClain Bowman preach in Roanoke. He is Bishop of Virginia now and is holding a series of meetings in this section. Aren’t you proud of our old Class of ’33—I surely am !! Always, Betty Brand Louise Bishop Betty Brand 4 . 27
