1947 ANNUAL 1
Since I have been around to see all my classmates I thought it would be nice to
visit some of the teachers who taught the last year I was in school. Leaving my
eight boys and the garage to Mary Henderlong I started on my journey.
I came through Lodi and found that Mr. Robinson had bought the Lodi Airport
and was carrying on a trade of his own, He had built a much larger plane and was
hauling express to and from the large cities. His pilots were the boys he had taught to
fly when he taught Aeronautics in Creston. However the boys who were juniors at
the time had long since been dead. The only pilot he could trust was Bonnie Steele.
Anyway he had a prospering business and I wished him luck for a few more years.
That can't be for very long for you see he isn't a young chicken anymore.
Coming to Creston I decided to visit the school and see if by any chance any
of the teachers were still here. On entering the office I found Miss Easterday behind
the Supt. desk. It seems that she was so stuck on the "little darlings" that she just
couldn't leave them. While I was talking to her one of the new teachers sent in a
pupil to be taken care of Cand I don't mean he was sickj, so Supt. Easterday set to
work. Boy does she swing a mean blow! That poor boy.
After this ordeal I asked her if she knew where I could find some of the other
teachers. She said that Miss Smith was making the headlines, She is a dancer in a
Broadway show called 'LWatch Your Step". She has danced with Fred Astaire, and
is now the envy of every girl of the community.
She also told me that Miss Hindley has a large aquarium in Chicago. She has a
group of prize fish that she names after her pupils. In her spare time she teaches swim'
ming at the nearest college. V
I was then informed about Mr. Frey and heard to my dismay that under his
careful guidance all of my school chums had become alcoholics. In teaching the course
on alcoholism, he discovered that drunkards are not responsible for what they do,
and devised a scheme to make billions of dollars. He has a great mental institution
and through his clever way of teaching, has been able to fill it with his students.
Each patient was asked to pay one thousand dollars previous to their admittance,
and as the institution has acquired a famous name, people from all over the world
are on his waiting list.
Mrs. Bibler is president of the firm "Want a Million Dollars" and to earn
a little more money, has also accepted the position of Mr. Frey's head nurse and
secretary at the institution. Her firm has been very successful and her position at
the institution is just as promising.
Miss Smit was chosen cover girl for the Farm journal Magazine when her
photo was spotted by the Lucky Strike Tobacco Company who hired her as a model
for their advertising. They entered her picture in the title of Miss Lucky Strike of
1948. It was later announced that she had won the title.
Having learned about all the teachers I started on my homeward journey to the
drudgery of the garage. -Frances Dravenstott
