T1-ir. CREST-I Junior Class Prophecy .0 After ten years of teaching, my family decided I needed a much earned va- cation, and insisted on me taking a trip around the world. One of the spots they especially wished me to visit was the Thousand Isles, and expressed a desire that I stay a year at each of them. So I decided I had better take a chance of a life time and make my journey. I had lived in Philadelphia for a number of years and was glad to shake its Quakerish dust from my new pumps, so I left for New York, where I intended to complete my wardrobe. I landed there at 2:10 and went to my hotel to rest until dinner time. While glancing over the "New York Sun", a familiar name caught my eye. I started- could it be possible? Yes, there was no mistake, there in inch letters in glaring black type, UPASSING SHOW Ol" 1941. Mary Crane Starring in 'WHERE IS MY WAN- DERING BOY TONIGHT' ". My heart stood still, my eyes wandering around the room fell on the telephone. After many unsuccessful attempts, I finally located her. I made an appointment with her for ten o'clock the next morning. VVe would go shopping together. The next day I hurried to our prearranged meeting place but Mary was late. After awhile, a neighboring clock struck eleven and I started to retrace my steps. Suddenly I heard a grating of wheels and a smashing of glass. A shrill cry and a familiar voice upraised in anger. I turned to see Mary alight from a taxi that had collided with a passing truck. She was dressed in the latest fashion. After a bit I started away, but Mary insisted I must see Wilma. "Wilma, who?" I asked. "Wilma Knellerl' she replied, HThat is her taxi. That long nosed boob from the sticks hit us tmaybe you remember him, Robert Harrisj. Lets make our way thither". Then I turned. Standing there in the street was Wilma with her arms on her khaki clad hips, her jaw protruding. She was telling Robert her true opinion of his clumsiness. I will spare you that, you'd not believe it anyway, and then Wilma swung around sinartlyg straightening her cap and stray locks. She greeted me with the old time smile and friendly grip of the hand. After a few remarks, Mary and I took our leave and strolled up the avenue when Mary exclaimed, "Oh, sayl Do you know what Jo Shepperd is doing?" Of course I did not and I felt something astound- ing was coming. "She is dancing in the biggest cabaret in New York and brings down one hundred berries a night. Laverna Wallace and Mildred Allen are running a delicatessen shop in Greenland. And Thressa Sanders runs a telephone exchange in Siberia, a real Bolshevik too. Did you hear about Leonard McDowell. He is an ar- chitect and Leon married a Widow Smith, I believe. They've gone to Alaska on their honeymoon. By this time we were strolling down Fifth Avenue. We saw two women coming toward us, dressed in the latest fashion of trouser dresses and henna red hair. As they passed us we were too astounded to speak. "Elizabeth Burns and Edith Quackenbush, Fifth Avenue Vamps. Can you beat that?" Mary cried, and straight- way fainted. I got her safely home and when she came to she said she had forgotten to tell me about a dinner party that I was invited to. "Where'?" I asked, for who in New York knew me? "VVith Miss Willa Johnston, the greatest Ziegfield Folly Girl." She replied.

QQQ 'F I T H E c R E s T I FFFWFTH-F At that party I met quite a few old friends. Iver Hansen, who runs the big- gest clothing store in New York, Eddie Peak, who is a coach in Central High School, New York City, and Mary Evelyn Baumgardner who is teaching the children in a Mission in the slums of New York. The next day I sailed for Cuba and upon arrival I received a cable from New York. Maxine Kilgore Hotel De Blank Havana, Cuba Look up Charles Embree Ranch Frog Legs Mary I didn't know what to do but decided to investigate. After two days of search- ing I found what I sought in a rural directory. "Charles Embree, Frog Villa, occupa- tion, manufacturing frogs, exporting legs, No. 598362144 Thunderf' I called him up and asked him how he was getting along in this popular occupation, and he said, "Finances aren't so good as prohibition has taken all the hops out of the frog legs." But he added, "Did you know Leonard Carlson and Louise Repplinger and Clyde Townsend are working for me out here? They are all fine" After an extended conversation we stopped. My next port was Cape Town, South Africa. After a thirty day travel into the jungle, and having camped for the night we heard the "Zula Zula" of the can- nibal and rushed to see what was the matter fafter we had seen to it that we were all heavily armedj. Peeping through the bushes we found in a clearing that the cannibals had four people tied to posts ready to burn them. We rushed up and when the men in our party had killed the cannibals, we turned our attention to the ones tied to the posts. Who could they be? Well, would you believe it? Constance Myers, Dean Hood, Mary Gentry and Rex McGuigan. We brought them into safety, and after a little persuasion they decided to accompany me on the rest of my trip. On our way to Algiers they told me of many of the old class mates. They said Bill Finefield was a yell leader in a Chinese College and Donald Lichty was water boy for the team at the same place. They also asked me if I knew that Earnest Neville was still in Creston running a butcher shop on Adams street, and that Andrew Harsh had taken his father's place in the bank. We finally arrived at Algiers to find that we had just missed Dorothy Riley who was there to buy jewelry, from those savages, for the Riley Jewelry Shoppe in Creston. After traveling through Spain and Portugal and Southern France we came to Paris. When we had spent several days there we decided to go to a theatre to see a famous dancer. As the curtains parted I thought the slender dancer looked familiar, and after straining my eyes a while I decided it was-Oh, it couldn't be- Virginia Snoderly. She was wonderful and I found her orchestra accompanists were made up of Thomas Hawkins, directory Philip Hipes, saxophone, Francis Dwyer, pianist: and many other strange people. At the close of the performance we went back of the stage and Francis told us that Helen McCue was taking a rest cure in Spain, having broken down from overwork. When we left Paris we went through Monte Carlo where we found Bernice Wilson, the wife of a millionaire, and leading her old man a merry chase. In Turkey we found Minnie Schultz and Jessie Martin running a day nursery, and heard that Harry Dawson and Wayne Lamb were running a dancing school in China.' They were fast making a name for themselves.
