us that he is down in Texas busting broncos. He plans on entering a big rodeo and if
success comes his way Qas I am sure it willj he intends to head straight for California
and make Verda his blushing bride.
On our way back East again we stopped for a week's showing at Akron. While
there we were very glad to see Wade Rennecker as he took us for a ride in his new
Zeppelin. He is employed at the airport there and soon hopes to break all records in
a nonfstop flight around the world.
While we were so near Creston, Elsie and I decided to run down to the old home
town. When we arrived we found Darrell Bowman doing a little hard work at last.
He is running for mayor and busy making campaign speeches. Margaret Ries has
achieved her muchftalkedfof ambition too. She is at the head of the ladies' dress def
partment in Sellers and Obers. The city of Creston is prospering rapidly. It now boasts
of a public library, city park, waterworks, and a town hall.
Back East, in good old New York, Zella Jackson, at the Melting Moonlight Garf
dens, is stepping it off in the Follies. While Elsie and I were spending an evening at
Coney Island we were startled by hearing, above the din of the crowd, a voice sound'
ing very familiar.
"Three shots at the nigger baby! Right this way-three shots for a dime-ten
cents. It won't make ya, nor break ya!" And lo and behold there was Lee Dicus surf
rounded by a large crowd and drawing a great deal of attention.
Down at Palm Beach, Selma Jeffers is a deepfsea diver and doing very nicely in
her scientific work. But best news of all, Lowell Irvin has accumulated a vast fortune
raising oranges and grapefruit in Florida.
This is a resume of my summer tour. By my good luck in renewing all these
acquaintances you can readily see that life in a circus is packed full of excitement and

Now I must hurry and dress for my next act. I hope you will enjoy this letter
about the dear old class of '35. It certainly turned out to be a class of which our good
old Alma Mater, C. H. S., should be proud.

"Oh, heavens! That one might read the book of fate!"
June 25, 1950
My but I'm tired this evening. It's been such a strenuous day and so much has
happened. I have neglected answering your letter for some time but as I have been
meeting so many of our old classmates of '35 the last few weeks I thought perhaps
you would enjoy hearing about them.
First, perhaps, I had better tell you of myself. You know Elsie Bartholomay and
I were in a onefact show for a long time. Well, now we have joined Ringling Brothers
Circus. It is in our visits to the various cities throughout the country that I find all
our old friends.
Elsie is a huge success as a trapeze performer. As I see her go through her daring
stunts I always think of the theme song at our Tuesday morning chapels, "The Man
on the Flying Trapeze." I am very much interested in my work and am gaining fame
rapidly. I am a barefback rider and have a snow white horse to perform with. It cer'
tainly is a great life and Elsie and I both are having a wonderful time.
We are in Chicago now, and guess whom we should see the first night of our
performance. None other than Gerald Campbell, now the president of Sears and Roe'
buck. We met his charming wife and two sons. He invited us to go through the plant
and also warned us that we would find one of our school chums working there. We
found Hazel Metz as a nut-dipper in the candy department. What a surprise!
One afternoon during our stay in Milwaukee we were up town doing some shop'
ping. We found Clyde Bricker running an outfdoor market and specializing in lim'
burger cheese. I always knew he would be a high pressure salesman some day. In this
same city Helen Herman, Ruth Haskins, and Anna Belle Hoffman run a restaurant
called the 3-H's, for they specialize in a students' luncheon of hash, hamburgers and
huckleherry pie all for 12c.
We discovered Ira and Margaret in Montana on a sheep ranch. They live miles
from any town but seem to be very happy in a cozy home with their large family.
We inquired about Melvin Rhoads and were told that he is in Canada homesteading.
Eileen is planning on going out in 5 years when she is sure the homestead will be theirs.
Out in Salt Lake City Lloyd Beal preaches in a great Mormon temple and has a
large following. Many of his burdens are lightened by his lovely little wife fnee Eve-
lyn Foltzj. Evelyn is also a great singer and directs the music in their temple meetings.
Good old Hollywood next! Way down in this merry city is Verda Metz busily
working on her latest production, "Advice to the Lovelornf' We inquired in a rather
roundfabout way of Roy Amstutz and were really dumfounded when Verda informed

"Lend thy serious hearing to what I shall unfold."
We, the class of 1935 of the High School of Creston, County of Wayne, State of Ohio,
being about to depart from this sphere in sound mind, memory, and understanding, do make
and publish this our last will and testament. We. the class of 1937, do realize without undue
