sons and was THE lady of society. She was living in a New York pentf
house and had been chosen as one of the ten best dressed women of the year.
Robert Fry, it seems, was quite a man about town. His distinguished
goatee and moustache evidently added to his magnetic charm for he had
broken many of the local women's hearts. He had been married six times
but each marriage had been a failure. It was then that he decided to call
it quits and spend all his time on the stock market.
Dorothy Bigler wasn't at all the shy, bashful type she had been during
her school days. She was now the sole owner of the Bigler Construction
Company of Creston. The motto for Dorothy's company was "You tear
'em down, we build 'em upf' She, of course, owned a ranch south of
Creston and has some of the most beautiful horses in the country. Bing
Crosby had sold all his horses to Dorothy, thus explaining her ranch.
Corrine Kaufman had wanted to become a dramatic actress but she,
too, had changed her mind and was now a very prospering lady dentist.
She had an ofhce high in one of Creston's biggest business buildings and
was the foremost dentist.
Donald Reese was doing all right for himself too. He was a tree surgeon
which explained the wellfkept look Creston's shrubbery had. He had mar'
ried a local belle at the age of 19 and had settled down to raise a lovely
family of twelve. He led a quiet life except for Saturday afternoons, when
he took part in a debate heard over the radio on a nationwide hookfup
known as "Donald's Dingy Debate Department".
Pauline Irvin had surprised everyone by buying out her father's garage
and converting it into a recreation hall. She also bought some additional
land surrounding the garage so she could have a twofacre gym. Her basket'
ball team was the girls' championship team of Ohio.
Phillip Matteson, it seems, was tired of the humfdrum of city life and
had bought a huge dairy farm in Wooster. It was known as "Flip's Dairy"
and was very prosperous. A great asset to his business was his clean shaven
look, acquired when he received permission from his parents at the age
of 25 to use a razor.
james Blough was the president of an oil company created in Creston
many years ago when oil had been discovered there. He was a millionaire
but it hadn't gone to his head. He had never married because he didn't
trust women since his brideftofbe jilted him when he was a young man of 28.
I thanked Mary and Frances for the information about my other class'
mates and again boarded the ship which was taking me to New York.
