On with the Show- One likes to look into the future and reminisce about the past . . . and for reminiscing we decided to have a reunion of the Class of ’48—-as for looking into the future here is what we saw and heard: Well, everyone was there, simply everyone! 1 ! The first person we saw was MILDRED GARNETT an up and coming radio singer. Listen in some time, she’s on station Ruff every Tuesday night. Another of our old classmates added a lot to the day with her new vocation. That was STRANNA LESLIE who went around all day snappin’ pictures to help us remember this famous class. There came RICHARD HURT just home from Annapolis, and did he look slick! Ever heard of those two up and coming cartoonists, JOE HUBBARD and GORDAN GUNTER? Sure you have! They draw the strip, “Big Chief Pain in the Face.” Oh, there was so much to see and hear. A couple of the girls had just been on a cruise. These traveled young ladies were none other than our own BARBARA ADAMS and ARBUTUS AGEE. We missed a couple of our old members though. JOHN SHANK had gone to Argentina as the U. S. ambassador and PEGGY SMITH had sailed on the same boat to serve as financier for a large shipping company. ANNETTA LOMAN was in Oregon as a Director of Religious Education in one of the churches. LILLIAN MOSES was on her way to Brazil as a missionary, too. RITA FRIEND, now national director of Girl Scouts, had gone to Switzerland to a conference and couldn’t be present. They were all in our minds and we hope they will succeed, as all A. L. students always do. Now let’s see who else was there, in body as well as in spirit. The next face we remember seeing was that of HOMER SHOW ALTER. He was still trying to figure out the words to “I’m My Own Grandpaw.” (Think we could easily understand his dilemma.) This could have been considered a farewell party for DAVID SISLER as he left the next week to “see the world.” RALPH PLUNKETT went with David on the world tour.

On uAttlt the. Sltcuu {Continued, from page up) A couple of teachers were in our midst but for once we didn’t have to mind our P’s and Q’s for they were our own JUNE FRAZIER, Home Ec teacher at old A. L., lucky girl, IMOGENE HARRIS, one of the promising French teachers of the day, and ORA MAY MILLER, a very charming English teacher. DORIS CROTTS is now the French teacher at our Alma Mater. Not even French would be hard with a teacher like that! JIMMY COMER and GEORGE BOWMAN still stick together, just like in the good old days— they have bought out “Consolidated Glue.” JUANITA BLTTT left for Hollywood the next week for a screen test for the new picture, “Now Is the Minute.” MARY LOU CROSSWHITE, a big adver¬ tising manager in New York, is now sponsoring the Broadway play, “No Ado About Something,” starring JOAN JOHNSTON. ALVIN STUMP, that good-natured senior of ’48, is now “Life” on the program, “Life Can Be Beautiful.” ORVILLE SIGMON owns a home on a hill with a very special HILL. VERNON BESS has taken over the local drug store and is well liked by all his customers as an ambitious young pharmacist. MELVIN BOWLING is now with Pu Dont as a chemical engineer. JAMES HARRIS is also a chemical engineer. Some of the old classmates that we didn’t have much time to talk to were EDSEL CONNER (still crazy about hunting), JAMES WELCHER (quite a famous dancer for GMG studios now), CHARLOTTE DRISCOLL (we heard she graduated from Averettand then settled down to a very happy, little, rose-covered cottage), JACK MOWBRAY (he’s in aviation), and MARGARET ANN BOONE (she had her book, “Lassie Go Back,” published). RACHEL McCORMICK is private secretary to Tord and Laylor in New York. THEODORA SAVA, whose genial personality won so many friends for her in the past has now won for her a spot on the Ramble Soup program as M. C. Just about this time we were confronted by CARRIE LEE PATTE- SON and REBA REESE loudly proclaiming the glories of V. P. I., as if they had some special reasons Goodwin-Williams COLONIAL THEATRE Chevrolet Corporation Salem, Virginia Sales Service The Finest in Motion Picture Entertainment Phone 303 Salem, Virginia SALEM MOTORS, INC.
