CLASS PROPHECY After a whirlwind of getting the little “McCauleys” off to school, I sat down almost in a daze and could hardly believe that it was 1965, ten years since I had graduated from high school. I began to wonder if their twelve years in school would be as happy as mine were. Suddenly it seemed as if a cloud had engulfed me and there before me was an image of each classmate. Each began to tell me what each one had derived in life. Harry Boone has succeeded Douglas Edwards as news commentator for C. B. S. Bruce Bradley has just completed his rocket ship and will leave soon for the Moon. Dorothy Broome is a well known consultant on “Teen-Age Love Problems,” she seems to know every angle.

Frankie Herring is a stewardess for the American Airlines; she’s flying high. Kenneth Huneycutt has just received the championship cup for the nation’s top stock car driver. Helen Jarmon is now employed as a commercial artist for Walt Disney.

Earl Price is still doing everything he can to keep from doing anything. Carol Smith has become a lady bull-fighter and has thrilled many people by fighting the most ferocious bulls in North Carolina.
