Q+t with the Sluuu (Continued from page iiq) LEON BOONE owns a big cattle ranch in the west and is what you might call a “country gentle¬ man.” FRED GREGG is in Detroit now working as a Diesel engineer. SAMMIE BLOUNT went north also as a radio engineer. Then we heard that LEE HARTMAN was quite an up and coming engineer in the Philippines. DAVID CARR got on the coaching staff at Luke University. MELVIN HARMON and LOU ANNA ETTER are bookkeepers for one of the big firms in Roanoke. Then there were those wonderful girls “with a smile in their voices”—SUE POFF, one of the stars on the ’48 basketball team; RUTH CLARK, remember how sweet and gentle she was?—She hasn’t changed a bit; FAYE LAVINDER, her smile wasn’t confined to her voice, and LORENE SIMP¬ SON, just as cute as ever, and we guessed from her glowing countenance that her position was only temporary. There were a couple of lab technicians in our midst who were quite excited over their work— BETTY VIAR, just as ambitious and full of life as you ever saw her; HELEN AMES, looking quite starchy in her white uniform, and GWYN ANDREWS, very interested in an intern at Duke and he in her. We heard that JEAN STANFORD is a very prominent psychiatrist. There were a couple of interns themselves in our little gathering, MARY LOLI MUSSER and CHARLIE DORSEY being the young cut-ups. MARY VIRGINIA GASKINS is now head nurse at the Lewis- Gale. We were quite proud of EDITH HAYDEN and her basketball ability on the nurses’ team when Jefferson Hospital played the Roanoke Hospital. JEANNINE ASSAID is nursing now, but we hear that her correspondence in France is pretty heavy. Three little girls in white that we didn’t get to see much were JANE SCOTT, JEAN HARTMAN, and JEAN BROWN. AUDREY NICHOLS wasn’t able to come to our little meet as she is now in Korea as a missionary nurse. We wouldn’t want to bore you with all this medical talk but just have to tell you what a prominent dentist MELVIN HOLLANDSWORTH is. Then in walked CAROLYN CHARLTON—she’s a nurse now, too.

Sitting off to themselves (we had to intrude) were BETTY LUCAS and BOBBY CHADWICK discussing the big time they had in Florida last summer. They’ll tell you there’s no place like it, however, if we took a vote Andrew Lewis would probably win ten to one. FRANKIE BISHOP has just graduated from a Roanoke hospital and she tells us that WILLIAM is in Germany now as a civil engineer helping with the reconstruction work. And good old CLARENCE was there laying them in the road in the usual MABERRY manner. JUDY BROWN told us that she was doing Social Work now and who could be better with a personality like hers? There were a couple of get-rich-quickers in the Class of ’48 and so they all struck out to Alaska. NELVIN HOBACK made a cool million in oil, while EUGENE WEST started the first Photomobile in Alaska and is doing quite well so we hear; JACK WILLETT never got over his interest in girls and finally settled down to a nice little millionaire heiress of his own, while HAROLD WRIGHT is now managing Stoneyfellow’s Willow Run plant and is the top salary man in the nation. Guess what JEAN THOMAS greeted us with? That’s right, that old, “You’re cute, kid, but who likes kids?” Same old JEAN but she’s quite a successful journalist. BETTY JEAN SISK is also a journalist on the staff of “Ugh.” EVELYN GILLESPIE came around to talk in her usual happy manner. She’s on the Woof Dog Food program as the star vocalist. CONNIE STEVENS has be¬ come quite a successful interior decorator. Of course we were delighted to hear about all of her ex¬ periences and all she would say after that was, “Oh, Pooh!” A couple of our cronies got a band together and made quite a name for themselves. LYNN DEYERLE plays drums, and JLDY HOLLADAY sings. You probably know them by GENE DRA¬ PER and His Hot Capers. One of our little ladies actually got to Carnegie Corridor. That was MAE McCRAY, a prominent concert pianist. ELLA MAE DRAPER and EVIE CHAPMAN teamed up and are now appearing with the New York Philharmonious. JAMES KINZIE and JACQUE HITE will appear in a concert in Washington to open the social season there. {Turn to page 126) [ 119 ]

0+t until the Sliaut {Continued from page 120) LLOYD CAMPBELL, now a big time engineer, RONALD ZOLL, a big wheel in the industrial world, and JEANETTE WATSON, the little lady who made the national women’s softball team last year, were discussing the probability of enlarging the A. L. gym. The WIRT boys, JACK and JAMES, “took to the air”—they’re pilots at Woodrum Field. BOBBY JEFFREYS and BILL HUGHES are now on the photography staff of “Whiff,” a big perfume advertising periodical. JOHN RECTOR stayed in Salem to become a prominent businessman, but he delights the Lions’ Minstrel audiences each year in his role of “Tiny.” EDNA TLIRNER joined the Wacs after graduation and entertained us all with the tales of some far off places she’s been. Good-natured BILL POAGE now runs the group of chain stores, “Tick or Tack.” GEORGE ST. JOHN is a professional boxer, appearing in Madi¬ son Round Gardens this spring. BOBBY and BILL THORNHILL replaced Abbot and Costello in the movies; their latest production being “Discord of Harmony.” NANCY SANDIDGE, FRANCES SMITH, ELMA JEAN JARVIS, and SYLVIA GRUBB went to Washington and are working for the government on the Potent Energy Commission. CHESTER MILLS, whose friendly nature we so well remember, is writing a book entitled “How to Win Friends Who Aren’t People.” JANE JAMISON is now a very able librarian at old Andrew Lewis. REGINA HURT, one of the attractive Seniors of ’48, is personnel manager at Smartwear Serving Saks. DUCK KEITH is now manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, the team of the year. TICK JONES, JAMES LEIGHTON, JOHN MILLER, and GLENN PERFATER are some of the leading poli¬ ticians of the state. ARNOLD OVERSTREET and LLOYD ROWE were having quite a discussion on whether our old classmate JOE LOGAN should be sent to the Far East as personal representative for the President. BUCK PLUNKETT said that he thought JOE could handle the job. BRENT HUFFMAN is quite a successful criminal lawyer in Boston. ROBERT STACY has been promoted to a chief petty officer in the Navy. EDWARD SCRUGGS is now Postmaster General in the Presi¬ dent’s cabinet. VANCE CANNADAY is a very successful businessman. (Turn to page 124 .) [ 121 ] I,f.TX7ia Knhoc
