Zluniur Liliana lirnpherg Naples, ltaly, May 30, l935. Home again! l-low delightful Sunny Italy seems to me after having spent sev- eral years away from her peaceful bosom! And yet, although l am so glad to return, l can never regret my absence from her, for during this time. I have travelled over the earth and have seen many various and interesting sights and people which will furnish pleasant food for reflection during the years to come. Best of all, I have seen or heard of all my former classmates at C. l-l. S. How much pleasure their faces, familiar still, even though time had changed their appearance somewhat. Di- verse though their fates were, they, as with one accord, looked back upon their High School days as one of the brightest spots in life. Clayton Bacon's famous ostrich farm in California is conducted on an enormous scale. The farm covers 400 acres, and Clayton employs over l00 people to care for these giant birds. The egg gatherers alone number two dozen, and the chief of them all is Ralph Vannausdale who may always be seen with an egg in each hand. Another employee is Wheeler Jennings, whose job it is to pluck plumes, but who is so kind and gentle with the birds that he can ride any of them at will and they fearlessly eat from his hand. Chancing one day to fall asleep upon the back of his favorite ostrich, Nine Toes, Wheeler awakened after a short nap to find himself wonderfully refreshed and invigorated. The result of this discovery was the famous "Nine Toed" mattress, invented and patented by Wheeler Jennings, which promises to rejuvenate the entire slumbering system of the world. Anothr inventor of recent recognition is Lester Kassell the great scientist who has invented a patent medicine which is positively guaranteed to make anyone grow to the desired height in forty-eight hours, each teaspoonful adding one inch to the original stature. There is great debate in the scientific worlcl, concerning who will be the first patient, as every one, including Lester himself, assert that their courtesy demands that they allow the other fellow try it Hrst. I visited for several days in a select girl's finishing school in the East, of which Miss Areta Bender is the popular principal beloved by all her girls. One of the teachers is Miss Signe Larson, the instructor in etiquette and dramatic art. The dean of the dormitory is Miss Margaret Faullc, who is very strict with her charges not allowing them to stay out after 9:00 p. m. even if they have a chaperone. Georgia Bacon became a missionary to the jungles of Africa, where she encoun- ters no difficulty whatsoever in converting the barbarians as they invariably fall in love with her and then follow wherever she leads them. Gladys Edmiston is a dashing young aviatrix, having actually made a trip six feet above the clouds without screaming once. Lucile Wilson, the renowned lawyer, studied law in Chicago, and was admitted to the bar at Toledo, O. She is the most successful lawyer in the state and has never lost a single case. Breach of promise suits are her specialty. Not so fortunate has been the fate of Frank Boortz, who ever since completing his education, has been trying to write a story that some magazine would publish, but failing utterly. His sad case is treated at great length in a book entitled "lVlartyred American Writers," by another former classmate, Margaret lckis. Margaret has writ- ten a great number of text books on subjects troubling the minds of scientists of today, such as "The Origin of Grey Matter."

voyaging for about five weeks a dreadful epidemic broke out among the crew and pas- sengers and for six weeks we lay at anchor. When again our ship took up her journey our way was rough and hard. There was much work to be made up. But time passed rapidly and with our earlier experience we weathered the rapids successfully, and also enjoyed delightful furloughs at the homes of Margaret lckis and Lola Kessler. After another enjoyable three months furlough, we again came back to our ship to find it manned by a new captain, Mr. Crane and a few new members among the crew. How pleasant the voyage was now for we were accustomed to the falls and rap- ids ancl skillfully weathered them all. A two weeks furlough was given on this trip because of a shortage of coal, but we were not long in making up the time. We were some handicapped for a while because of the illness of a number of our crew. But here again our knowledge of the workings of our ship stood us in hand and things ran along quite smoothly. We have almost reached the end of this third voyage, and way off in the dis- tance we can see the shining expanse of the Ocean of Life. Our pilot and crew tell us that the great Ocean of Life will be reached in one more voyage, so we are all anxiously waiting our last trip on old C. H. S. M. L. I. '2l. M. H. H. '2l.

Franklin Agnew is a prominent member of the New York police force. I saw him in action and was fully convinced that he knew his business for he arrested a thief, helped an old -lady over a busy crossing, and stopped a dog fight, all in the brief space of fifteen minutes. A short time ago, my attention was called to a very interesting newspaper, and turning to the editorial page, I learned to my surprise that Ruth Quin and Margaret Ohlschlager were the joint editors. The society column was edited and cleverly ar- ranged by Fern Wiley and Elva George, while Edna Johnson was responsible for the "Ccnfidential Corner." an unusual and absorbing part of the publication. While in Argentine, I encountered True Courter, who owns a large sheep ranch at this place. He disclosed the fact that Roy Worthington had been his foreman ever since the latter fRoyJ had come hither to seek relief from his heart which had been broken because he had been jilted by a chorus girl. It appeared that Roy had fully recovered and was at the time of my visit, doing his utmost to give his neatly mended organ of emotion to one of the native girls. Fern Lininger and Emma Lentner are two of Cuba's public health nurses, and their service during a recent outbreak of yellow fever, has been amply rewarded by the Government. I found Harold Cummings acting as postmaster in the hamlet of Sleepyville, Ky., where he has become the patriarch of the village. Mary Brady opened a millinery shop in one of the Hawaiian Islands, conducts a thriving business and has no competition. Lola Kessler and Faye Ferguson are models in a big modiste concern in New York City. Katherine Milnes is a sulfragette in Mexico, which is now about the only remain- ing country of the globe which has not recognized women's rights. Katherine, how- ever, is rapidly advancing this enterprise, and states that her work will soon be com- pleted and then whither will she turn? She says that success will be pleasing to her of course, but that she will feel like Caesar, when after having brought the whole world under submission, sighed for more worlds to conquer. Gracia Allen inherited a small truck farm in Connecticut from which she realized a substantial income, by the sunburn of her face. Dr. Hugh Tramp of New Zealand, has discovered a steam cure for measles which he is testing on the natives, before venturing to announce his discovery in the United States. The Beauty Parlors of Lola Ruckman and Mae Bantock, located in Denver are patronized by an exclusive class of women. Lola excels in her artistic coiffures and Mae in her perfect manicures. Earl Kessler occupies the important positicn of secretary to the president. Earl used to disagree with his chief in many respects, but of late, harmcny seem to reign between them. Many folks are puzzled over this change of base but those in official circles state that the change is due to the fact that Earl met the daughter of the presi- dent a few weeks ago when she returned from abroad. Nobody knows what the outcome will be but the affair is being watched with great interest. One of the most impressive sights I saw while in the United States was an exhi- bition given by a famous dancing school of which Eva Kazebser herself, together with live of her pupils of which she is proud. These were the Misses Gladys Madden, Lesta Champ and Messrs. Clarence Johnsen, Leo Wolfe and Maurice Lester. The performance excited much comment in the l:est circles, who declared it the most extra- ordnary thing of the kind they had ever witnessed.
