C LASSJ? PROPWEC V
When shall we three meet again In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
When years have oome and gone While the shades of night are drawn.
Where to meet? In Clear Lake.
What to do? Decide the fate.
Of whom? A senior, 8".
Why, what's this? The very picture of beautiful youth, walking; light coat unbottoned, shirt thrown open to the slight, balmy breeze of the oool night. He seems to revel in the sweet pungence of the humid air. See how he gazes at titee street light's reflections in a thousand tiny puddles left by the refreshing recent rain, listening to the swishing of an occasional car gliding cross the wet pavement. Hmmm—there was a blue 8 on his white sweater, and there were tears in his eyes. I wonder what he was thinking.
Nice night. Makes me think of other nice nights and of days when I used t o go to school. I wonder how the other kids are doin'. Hal I don't even know where they are. Cot so lonely today, I came baok home in hopes of seeing at least one old classmate. And now every face I see is new. But something (is it fate) keeps telling me to stay. I wish I could see some of my friends from long ago.
He wishes! He wishes! Make haste you two;
Make sure his every wish comes true.
Hey! Want a ride?
Sure!----Holy Cow! Lawrence Emerson! Where've you been keeping
Oh, I've been a traveling salesman for the last few years.
Say! Have you seen any of the others? I wish I oould see Miokey and-----------a
silent "whoosh" was heard, and Larry was riding alone.
I know I'm going crazy, but I won't let on to anyone. How on earth did I get into this theater? I could've sworn I was riding with Larry Emerson a second ago. What's showin'? Hah! I haven't seen the Hoosler Hotshots lhr a long time. Wait! That's not the Hoosler Hotshots. That's Mickey, Dick, Larry Erickson, and Alger Monson (I know he's not a senior). And there's Orvand Liei, the great screen lover. Who's he making love to? Say! Doesn't that beat all, how Rita gets around.----Well I better go. This must be the door out.
"Hi there 01' kid!
"Well, hello, Bennie. Hi, Orville. Don't tell me you own this theater?"
"Yeah, we're the managers. Say, did you see the newsreel picture of that Pro-football team? Gee! Doug Klatt sure is going places."
I wish I had seen it. You wouldn't happen to know where Faye Jones is? I
wish I could see her--------------Whoosh ah! Here I go again. What's this? Why I'm
in a hospital. Of course, Faye always wanted to be a nurse. I'll probably find her here. Well, hello! This is a surprise! Kathryn Lillie, Rose Dietrioh, and Eva Breeden, all three nurses. Is Faye a nurse here too?
She's here but she's not a nurse, she's a patient with a very serious case of the mumps. If you want to see her, she's right in that room.
Faye! I knew the mumps would catch up with you sooner or later.
Say, Faye, do you know where the rest of the kids are?
Well, Anne Marie Johnson and Arliss Willert are dancing and singing partners at a night club; Marilyn Frank, Barbara Ostenson, Helen Josephson, ek'd Peterson, and Laura Belle Johnson are all typists at the First National Bank of Clear Lake: Inger is Just settling down to married life; then there's Les New-
ville. He's plodding along is his private research lab trying to invent. some-

Hey boy! Watch outl
A orowd gathered around the unldentifiably mangled form of the poor boy. The man kneeling beside him said, "He must have been dreaming, he walked right in front of my truck."
