fc-- ' i.- ' :, , ' \ ' 2{rmtp 1^ High School Senior Class Prophecy NOW— AND THEN X-TREE PAPER. All about the presidential election. " The shrill voice of a newsboy penetrated the walls of my room at 2 A. M. Less than five minutes later I was reading the glaring headlines: " RICE NEXT PRESIDENT OF U. S. " ELECTED BY " OVERWHELMING MAJORITY. " Fifteen years — what a short time to gain the highest office attainable in the United States. That set me to thinking what the different members of the 1920 Class of Birmingham-Southern High School have been doing between 1920 and 1935. J. Reese is ambassador to Timbuctoo, and that is not the only diplomat from our class. A new office has been created in the President ' s Cabinet — that of Tiddledy- Winks. This office requires a man of unusual ability, and so who should the new Sec- retary of Tiddledy-Winks be but Curtis Sanford! Alan Clark is in Congress. One of his latest and most celebrated speeches is " Plea for Increasing the Length of the Day to 311/2 Hours. " This speech reflects the deep research work of the author and his thorough knowledge of the subject. Elizabeth Branscomb is suffragette leader of the " Ensemble pour I ' eau pure " faction, a branch of the Democratic party. Stanton Gandy retired from business life in order to devote his philanthropical career to the improvement of the Owenton-Ensley street car service. He has had installed on this line noiseless cars with Pullman accommodations, running every two and one-eighth minutes. In recognition of Mr. Gandy ' s public-spirited reforms, the student body of Birmingham-Southern College unanimously agreed to name a new variety of doughnuts after him. Claude Vardaman will appear at the Jefferson tomorrow night as director of the Shimminapolis Jazz Band. J. B. Burford is a stockholder in an insurance company which specializes in wh sk- brooms, electric light bulbs, and Christmas cards; while James Butler is proprietor of the Green Ribbon Shoe Shop. Walter Stallings owns a jitney peanut stand whose motto is: " If you eat here once, you will never eat anywhere else. " William Burney is starring in the movies. His comedy roles are very true to life, so critics declare. His latest picture, " The Ups and Downs of a Rat, " is said to have been filmed from personal experience. Charles Walston is math teacher in Birmingham-Southern High School. He has recently created world-wide enthusiasm over the question which he propounded before a meeting of the O. C. C. C. (Original Class Cutters ' Convention) : " If two spheres are perpendicular, calculate to two decimals the number of teeth in a cro;s-cut saw. " Page fifly-one
