Senior Class Prophecy
Once upon a time, late at night, two young eager authors sat on a table pondering. They were searching
and reaching for the twilight zone to get an inspiration. As they were sitting there in disgust with no en-
lightened thought, the maid served the tea, which our hardy authors readilylapped up. As they were sipping
the refreshing brew, their sleepless eyes were inadvertently drawn to the pot. A strange white vapor rose
from it. It quivered and twisted in alifelike fashion. The young men's eyebrows raised in astonishment, for
from the steam'a voice was heard.
One of the authors looked at his compaion. "Eh, Joe, did you hear. . . "
"Yea, ha, it must be our overworked minds!" he laughed.
The vapor shook violently as if angered, and now the two astonished scholars seemed to hear a voice.
The taller of the two laughed, "Once I heard a story about a genie, "he started, "this crazy smoke
reminds me of it. Anyway this guy found this lamp and he said to it, "Oh, Genie, Oh, Genie, bring me some
. . . .er. . . .pretzels."
Suddenly, before their astonished eyes in a puff a silver platter filled with choice pretzels appeared.
"Good grief!" they exclaimed in amazement.
One of the astonished authors caught heart again, stuttering, "G-G-Genie, d-do you grant w-wishes ?"
"Master, thy wish is my command!" was the reply heard from the vapor which by now had taken the
form of a huge muscular, turbaned Indian.
They both got their courage back and asked the Genie to give them an inspiration.
"What be the inspiration thou wanteth?"
"To look into the future," they blabbered forth in unison.
"The future of the people we like best of all."
"Ah, that must be the class of '62," answered the Genie with a broad smile.
"How did you guess?"
"I know all things !"
And so the misty curtain of the future was drawn away and here is what they saw:
BOB ALLEN, one of Ohio's leading Senators, has just set a new filibustering record of 48 hours, 10
minutes, and 3 seconds. LOUISE BAKER is the chief air-line hostess on the TPA Trans-Planet Airlines.
J ANICE BALLOU has become the world's famous mural painter. ELDON BARONE has just replaced
Chubby Checker as the nation's leading Twister. Eldon is currently appearing on the "Twist along with

shoes. CARNETTA BLANKENSHIP now owns and operates the world's largest drive-in restaurant called
"The Redheads' Rendezvous." JERRY BAUER is now employedby Alaska's State Highway Patrol Department
and spends his time picking-up speeding dog sleds. SUSAN BOONE has replaced Kathei ine Murray on
television with "Twist along with Suzie." J BOTDORF is the engineer in charge of constructing Botdorf's
Bomb Shelters on his planet-Janet. ROBERT BREYLEY is known for starting the first "atom farm" on the
moon. GAIL AND DON BRITT are now merged into a company known as the "Britt and Britt's Barbecued

"Eh, how about telling us what the teachers will be doing?" burst forth one of the scholars.
And again the noble Genie lifted the curtain of the future:
"They all will have ulcers, as scars of their noble service. And the lofty ideals imported upon the very
special few, the class of '62 will be a monument to their success."
"Thanks Genie," said one ofthem sipping on his tea, which was cold by now, "how about doing something
for us now?"
"Yes," said the taller of the two, "bring us a truck load of gold."
"It grieves me, masters, but you have your three wishes, and I must depart now," he replied.
"We didn't have three wishes !" they refuted.
"Oh yes, first the pretzels on a silver platter, then the future of the favorite few, and finally the future
of the teachers."
Before they could say more, the strange visitor vanished into the pot, as suddenly as he had appeared.
In amazement they looked into the teapot, only to find a few drops of cold tea. left. '
