Class Prophecy New York City, N. Y. May 24, 1960 Dear Mr. Holscher, Patty and I have the same night off so thought we would get together. While chattering nonchalantly, we decided to write a letter to you and inform you of the part the class of. 1950 is playing in this present da world. Seeing as we have never seen our Nation's Capital we decided that as long as we are on the East Coast we would go there during our vacation. We arrived by the Eastern Airlines and while waiting to have our safety belts fastened, who should come to assist us but Margie Erbe, the stewardess. She told us that Harlan Mertz was the pilot of the plane and that they were seeing a lot of each other lately. We wished the: a happy landing. While dining at the "Blue Dalia" that evening we were surprised to hear Bob Jarvis and his orchestra playing those old familiar waltzes. A greater shock came to us when we saw that familiar face Willis Bieber. He- saw us just as we saw him and came over to our table and talked with us. He informed us that he is now President of the Farmers' Union and also said Merle Merkel is practicing law in the city and whenever he needed a lawyer for his business matters he had Lawyer Merkel attend to it. As I am Superintendent of Nurses at the Memorial Hospital in New York City, l had to go to the John Hopkins Hospital on business the next afternoonlwhile Patty, who is a model for the New York Fashions, went to a fashion show. When we arrived home that night Patty related that- she had seen Ardella Wlasenko and Elvera Kiesz at the fashion show. Ardella is a secretary for the Radcliffe Construction Company and has recently had a letter from Dorothy Oster Knee Schmidtgallj informing her of the arrival of a baby girl at Bowdle. Elvera said that she owns a beauty salon in the east part of the city and enjoys her work very much. , That afternoon as l was sitting in the reception room of the hospital who Should appear before me in a doctor's uniform but Herbert Robinson. Herbert said that he had seen Anna Mae Eisenbeisz last summer She had spent her vacation here and told him that she was busy teaching the fifth and sixth grade at Selby. When we went to lunch we saw a poster which said: "Redheads, girl's basketball teaxn to play at the 1 Arena 7:30 tonight." As both Patty and I like basketball we decided to attend it. As we watched the girls warming up I noticed a familiar figure and then before I could say anything, Patby yelled out "Hi, Jeanette". So of course,we spent a few minutes talking with Jeanette Dewald, who tol us that Harold Schuh is the manager of the Redheads. we took the return trip to New York City by train and met Jerome Leidholt on it. He was returning from a boxing tour in which he had taken top honors. Well, Mr. Holscher, that's what happened to your Senior class of 1950. We hope you are as happy as v are and wish you much success.
