Qnce, while entertaining a 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.

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: ALUMNI NEWS 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.

some professional comment on the game. The First, Joe Hirsch, editor of A. M. said the game stanlc, and the second, Julian Armistead, only turned out to he an ex-newspaperman. The two were so non-descript and disappointing that it was not until long after that l realized that they were mernhers of the rogues, gallery of ,4-4. At this point, Maclc and l ran into a couple of friends who dragged us oft to the house of one Judy Friedman. We didn,t helieve it at First, hut it was true: there was a purple carpet in every room of the twenty-seven room house. During the conversation it transpired that Judy had heen a graduate of Bentley. l went home that night with a lot of worlc accomplished. l Next morning l got off to a good start. At staff meeting the girls' fashion editor told us in gleeful terms that Nina van Dam, the Hgreatest fashion designer in Americaf, was coming to school to give us a lecture in assemhly. While the editor-in-chief was spieling on ahout some letter matter, l had a chat with the society editor. She made the hright suggestion that l loolc in the social register to Find a few more memhersof the alumni. l found May Rose Bessalel, Nancy Jane Silclu, and Enid Levy. A ,long distance call to 'the South hrought May Roses hutler to the phone to tell me that Hlvladam sent her compliments' and was entertaining the Congressmen from North Carolina. Another call to Parlc Avenue told me that Nancy was tallcing to hdr puhlisher ahout her new hoolc, and that she would call me hefore starting to write another. And the third telephone call, this time out to Long lsland, told me that Enid was at dinner with Bis Bertrum Brown, the hig game hunter. f' i That afternoon l was having lunch at Longchamps, when, while follow- ing an English assignment of getting peoples conversations written down, l eavesdropped on three women tallcing husiness. Their tallc told me that they were from Bentley. l introduced myself and discovered that they were Gwen Freed, husiness executive of Lord and the Tailored Woman, Jean Sander, personnel manager of same, and Rosalee Schindel, top huyer for same. This hit of information cost me four lunches at Longchamps, hut it was worth it. l had finally narrowed the Field down to three memhers of that illus- trious class. They were Karen Gelert, Doris Epstein, and Dave Ballantine. l lcnew the hest way to Find Karen was to go to some literary haunt or other since she, as you all lcnow, is a literary character. XV ith her l found Doris Epstein, whose poetry l,ve admired for many years. The last discovery was the most sensational. l was wallcing up Eighty-sixth Street when l was shot hy accident The result was a hallistic expert,s prohe in me as l lay on a slah at police neadquarters. The hallistic expert was David Ballantine, so l interviewed him while he worlced. This hit of research was expensive-fone pint of hloodHhut it also meant that my assignment was completed. 32
