I'Iaving projected ourseIves into the future we ran across a very interesting
articIe in the Beacon, of 1964. Among the thousands of newsy and informative
items there was a report on the activities of some of the aIumni of 714. We
have committed this to memory in thirty seconds and recopied it to show it to
you. BeIow is the copy:
THE Crfxss oif 1944 GAINS REcoGN1r1oN IN MANY Fuirns
To show the students of BentIey what a Fine heritage they have, the
editor of this coIumn did a Iot of hard research to hring you an accurate and
unexaggerated report on the activities of the cIass of ,4-4 in the worIds of
science, art, Iiterature, entertainment, etc., The onIy person who has had a
compIeteIy caIm Iife is AIice Schwah. She has spent her time enjoying it and
not worrying too much. The rest of them have aII done something siIIy, IiIce
Inecoming famous. Take Barhara RosenhIoom, for instance. She hecame a
movie star and is still doing something or other to get into the papers. WhiIe
I expIored the entertainment worId to Find ex-BentIeyites of ,44 I ran into
loan DanieI in front of Radio City. She saw that I was from BentIey hy the
inteIIigent IooI: on my face, ran up to me and said, HYou go to BentIey, dogyou
not? Xvhen I admitted it she toIcI me, among other things, that she was a
radio actress and was now appearing in "IVIr. District of CoIumIJia Attorney-
GeneraI.H She was aIso Icind enough to give me a tip-OII that a girI named
EsteIIe IVIayers was pIaying on Broadway in Hgtrychnine and QId Loin CIoth.H
Having interviewed EsteIIe I stopped oft' at a musicaI show featuring the great
modern dancer, Jane Lyons. It was very pIeasing to note that the peopIe who
write up these hiographies of the cast considered it worth-whiIe to mention
that Jane was a BentIey girI.
By this time I thought that there were no more peopIe from that famous
cIass connected with the theater, hut I happened to see in the paper just Ibefore
we went to press that AIan IVIurphey, the first maIe treasurer of BentIey, has
hecome manager of the Roxie Theater. As I hrowsed further through the paper
I tooIc a gIimpse at a review of Iast night,s opera at the Met. Vxfhat caught my
attention was a mention that IVIariIyn Reinis had made a speciaI guest appear-
ance pinch-hitting for the Iead, who had caught dysentery. IVIusing ahout dys-
entery and other sciences I decided to investigate that worId tot science and

discussion ahout manners with one of our faculty, l discovered that Charles
Hoher was, in that teacher,s opinion, the most civil person to ever graduate from
our school., lt was not surprising then when l detected Charlie in a Hcivilu
engineer,s olzljice with his feet upon the deslt. H
Going haclc to dysentery l went through the hospitals in this city and in
my travels witnessed one of the hest pieces of surgery ever seen hy me per-
formed hy lrma Golclherg. Also immersed in medicine l found Naomi lsaacson,
who told me that her real love was sculping. She showed me some of her
sculpture, and l commented on it. Now weary of tramping through the sci-
ences, l tool: a shot in the darlc and read the Prophecy in the 1944 Silhouette.
There it said that Tohy Wloscowitz would he a chemist. l immediately called
her up and aslced whether this was true. She said it was. Having read the
old gossip columns of the era when the class of '44 were seniors, l aslced Tohy
if she lcnew anything ahout Newton Cattell. She did. He was a physicist.
l had a hunch that, it l went to Europe, l would liind one Monique
Kaplan, so l set out hy roclcet ship. When l climhed on hoard l was hungry
so l was attracted to a girl who was eating chocolate hars. l sat down next
to her. She immediately stuclc a har under my nose and said, Hl'lave somef,
The conversation progressed rapidly from there. She turned out to he a
Powers model, Helen Buchalter. She had graduated from Bentley in '44.

At this point the conversation lagged as she had run out of hars. l called the 5
stewardess over, and she supplied me with a chocolate har, her name, and her Q 5
telephone numher. It turned out that she was the Duveen Qltarsh, who also
originated from Bentley. '
ln Europe l easily located Monique hecause everyone lcnew of her great 9 3
worlc as a child psychologist after the last war. ln my conversation with her
she mentioned that she and Joan Saclc had studied under the same teacher. Q R Q

was told that she had moved. This disappointment was set oft hy the fact
that on my way to school one morning l was chatting with one of the lcinder- .

me to help him interview the coaches at a haslcethall game that night. Xvhat , rl
he did not tell me was that we were to interview women coaches. By the
strangest coincidence, the coach of the winning team, Xvellesley, was Elaine , ,lg
