CLASS PROPHECY T IS THE spring of 1943. Last Saturday night Fort Worth once more celebrated the opening of her world-famous Fat Stock Show with the most gorgeous pageant ever produced. Mayor Jack Gregory crowned Queen Mildred of the House of Brans- ford, whose beauty, so it is whispered, is partly owing to a plastic surgery operation by Dr. C. B. Brewster. Somewhat dazed by this spectacular affair I wandered about the familiar grounds until I happened upon the tent of a withered old Egyptian, who assured me that by gazing into his crystal globe for but a moment I might see all the past, present and future. "I wonder where are the friends of yesteryear?" I thought, and as I looked into the crystal, dim figures appeared, gradually becoming more distinct until, with a rush, these scenes passed before me: Henry L. Shepherd is now the American ambassador to the Court of St. James, where, much to his pleasure, it is still considered proper to wear knee breeches. Now being a member of every club of importance in the world, his customary two rows of club pins reach quite to his silver shoe-buckles. Margaret Caldwell is a world-famous educator, having recently been elected president of Smith College, where Marsie Cheek holds the Latin professorship. Paderewski's place as premier pianist has long been occupied by Fae Corbitt, who, having gained fame under her maiden name, still retains it. Maxine Shannon and Miller Sparks were recently employed by Margaret Horton, who now heads the Chicago Grand Opera Company. John Campbell is President of these United States. The First Lady of the Land will be remembered perhaps as Miss Gladys Hart. The Cabinet includes such celebrities as: Mrs. Nelle Byrne McCue, Elizabeth Strickland, Nilwon Nowlin, James Ryan and Allen McCue. Washington" has been in a commotion over the political fight being waged between Senator Joe Thomas, Democratic Leader, and J. W. Kennedy, Speaker of the House. Besslu Senter is mis- tress of the Governor's mansion at Austin and Marjorie Colvin is very active in church work there. 'Donald Frazee has become well-to-do by the accidental discovery of a popular breakfast food, made from sun flower seed, which are plentiful on his Handley estate. Elmore Hudson, famous architect, was recently awarded first prize by the International Association of Artists for an original design in hen-coops. Sunshine Richter, the portrait painter, has been enjoying a vacation on the Riviera after the labor of executing a portrait of Roger Hughes. The services of Mary Joe Rogers are now much sought after, since she has gained such widespread recognition for her knowledge of kindergarten instruction. Alice Jennings, famous for her charming novels, has recently collaborated with Roberta Johnson on the book, "Secret Secrets." Hugh Brooks was sent down to take charge of the new astronomical observatory at Benevida, Peru, and with him went Luther Mansfield, official government interpreter. Thekla Lockhart, who has achieved considerable distinction as an interior decorator, is now located in London, where she is remodeling Buckingham Palace. Forest Hurley, attor- ney with the firm of Hurley, Titsworth and DeWitt, recently won the most gigantic case ever before a Federal court when he successfully defended Chester Haltom in a suit brought against him for false rendering of his income tax. George Quillen, the successor to Will Rogers, was in Fort Worth recently for an operation by Herschel Thomas who, with his partner, Harry Pendrey, is broadly recognized for his surgery.

Joe Summerfield is reckoned as one of the foremost'living scientists, having. won recognition by his researches on "The Possibilities of Pulsating Protoplasmf' Ras Pemberton, after unsuccessfully endeavoring to take the place of Harold Lloyd in the "movies," is now owner of the Doll-House Furnishing Company. After a week's visit to Senior High, Dr. Elizabeth Van Tuyl has discovered an unfailing cure for brain fever.

Joe Cornwall, Shirley Mann, and Oran Steadman were recently acquitted in the oil fraud investigation conducted by Francis Smith, the new district attorney. The twins, Ila and Lila Walker, have married twin brothers, are now living in the Twin Cities, and each one has the sweetest little twin-six roadster. Christopher Byrne owns the controlling interest in a local Sta-Comb factory. Archie Poston, known as the "best dressed man" in Baltimore, has founded a medical museum there, although his practice frequently calls him to New York, where Helene Cook maintains her School of Interior Decorating. Marjorie Massengale is co-editor of the Bluetown Bugle, although there are rumors of her engagement to a prominent commercial artist. Rob- ert Bennie is in the hemp-rope business in the Philippines, where Earl Mabry is con- ducting experiments to determine the effect of heat on a disordered intellect. Grace Williams is Dean of the Waxahachie Conservatory of Music, where Pauline Dyer is the artist teacher of the mouth harp, and Margaret Justice gives recitals on the Edison. Wilma Young teaches domestic economy at the University of California. Tom Saunders, famous globe-trotter, has been writing a series of articles for the Saturday Evening Post on, "Wild Mice I Have Slain." Harold Olivey and H. J. Fry, explorers, have aroused the interest of the world by their excavations at Wautauga, which prove that a civilization existed there even before the advent of "Soggy Bill" James. Edwin Jennings and Fisher Reynolds have at last influenced the Textbook Commission to adopt their new work on mathematics, "Two Plus Two-Or Why?" Mary Stovall, fashion designer, has been employed all summer on the trousseau of Vivian Blackmon, who is to be married in October to a well-known -Handley sportsman and clubman. Odalie ogan is head of a large orphans' home in Mexico, where she has ample oppor- tunity to demonstrate her theories of a milk diet. Elmo Johnson owns a cattle ranch nearby.

Ralph Caldwell is the consulting engineer for the new 60-story municipal building in Fort Worth, which is being financed by "Get-Rich-Quick" Clark Woods. Marjorie Nell Harris is the "premier danseuse" at the Greenwich Winter Garden. X Fred Duvall has foresworn the chasing of "peaches" and owns America's largest orange grove near Pasadena.- And then there floated across the crystal globe the hazy figure of a stately, red- brick building. "Senior," I whispered to myself-"Old Senior High." This, too, dis- appeared, to leave me wondering if the old building could know how its children had prospered-and if somewhere in its musty halls there is Something, which is proud that their success is due in part to the training imparted by her to the Class of '23. lm, X frif' M- , .f.,.r gli' r,Ma,..a+g.f-...-.-L-...--- ------ ---if--Ti-D-gleam KLMAY A i f H ly Zsy
