[Excerpts from the Diary of Clara Bruce, found in the Year of 1986] August 6, 1942 Dear Diary: To-day I attended the Alumni Banquet of the old High School. I declare, it seems ages since 1934, when we were Seniors. I saw so many of the class and heard about so many more that I just must write about them. Elmore Hood is editor of the Roanoke Times, and on his staff are other alumni including Marguerite Warren. Emma Hall is a social reporter on another newspaper. Aaron Mann is a prominent advertising agent, working for various firms whose ads appear in the Times. Marshall Richmond, nationally known for his improvements on the radio, was there, and Jeannie, too—she sings over WYZ, New York. Margaret Perrow has proven to have great ability as a violinist. Henry Garden is a successful business man, and he and Benson Shank have just entered into a partnership. India Pace is now in the opera. Edna Mowles has just gone to Hollywood where, by the way, Louis Gardener is making a name for him¬ self. Walter Gottschalk and Howard Peters have entered politics; Walter is now our senator from this district, while Howard is in Congress. Loomis Kelly is an engineer and doing well. Virginia Hodges is director of athletics at the “Y” in Roanoke. Marian Hansbrough is a social worker—Hull House couldn’t do without her. Ozelle Robey is happily married to a wealthy manufacturer, and they came up for the Alumni Banquet. DeLois Ferguson and John Jett have reached the highest peak in boxing. Donetta French and Phillip Perdue are living in the same town, and they say they are still making eyes at each other. Bill Joyner, as editor, has brought the Literary Digest to the highest point of success it has reached yet. And, by the way, we have another man at Washington from the Class of ’34, Robins Hall. He is a member of the Cabinet. The class is widely scattered—Lucille Hurst lives in New Orleans, but stopped over for the banquet on her way from her second trip to Reno. Lucille Richardson has received all necessary degrees, and now signs her name with an M. D. attached to it. Eldridge Garrett is in the cigar business. Margaret Gresham is happily married to an army officer, and, as she told me, “—had the wonderful luck of being at home for the banquet.” She told me about literally scores of the class—I don’t see how she happened to know so much. She said Jessie Keesling was in Europe as As¬ sistant to the Ambassador to England. Victor Yonce is a member of the World Peace Conference that meets in Geneva this spring. Evelyn Clinvell and Marie Eakin are honored members of the faculty of the old Alma Mater. Frances Williams is married, likewise Eva Bryant, Hazel Bradley, and Ellen Agner. They all live in Salem. Ruth Candler is still playing basket ball on several teams. Edward Bayse is farming and making profits, too, they say. Firebaugh-Callison, Inc., are manufacturing cigars. Hugh Carter is a sheik in a big way, since somebody died and left him a fortune. Grace Brubeck is using her wonderful speaking voice in a number of ways, making speeches for various causes. Lenora Cornwell is working as a fashion model in a Richmond dress shoppe. Norman Duffy is another among the farmers of Roanoke County. James Cox is selling insurance for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. Eve Counts is still writing essays and winning medals. Roy Coleman is in Alaska on a gold-searching expedition. Landon Blackwell is working on an engineering project in South America. Frank Deel has one of the best small farms in the state. Charles Cromer is a large manufacturer of bicycles. Alary Barnett has returned to Salem to live after spending several years in Canada. George Beech is a big fire warden. Reuben Wohlford is now in Mexico mastering Spanish and the young ladies. Rea Wills is in a shipbuilding concern in Norfolk. Now, I hope I can see some more of the class soon and talk over old times. 39
