"Further records prove that Wilma Prose and Edna Brandt are the very eflicient supervisors
of a Bachelors' Home in which James Scott and Versol Lamphear are inmates. Eleanor Selzer
has become the famous dietician at the hospital for Melvin Larsen's Engineering Company.
Raymond Goulooze is dispensing sodas in a confectionary store in Lowell, Mich., and rc orts
that business is very flourishing. Eleanor Guenther is a farmerette on a little farm ofpher
own up in Northern Michigan. Fate has decreed that she become a spinster. Chester De Nuyl
has a barber shop on Main Street in Parnell, Mlich. It was rumored that he has over one
thousand customers on Saturday night. ln the basement of De Nuyl's store, Loren Hooger-
hyde has set up a Turkish bath. His advertisement states that he makes a worried business
man of forty look like a carefree kid of twelve. Clara Peel is bare back rider for Barnum E3
Bailey's Circus." ,
"Alice Buursma is proprietress of a restaurant in Grand Rapids and has a thriving business.
She waits table, cooks, washes dishes, does the work of cashier, and manages the whole thing
herself. In 1930 Dorothy Calrow accepted the position of teacher in a rural school in Alaska
and since that time nothing has been heard of her. May Clarke and Katherine Kellogg have
established a spinsters' rendezvous, and as a side line, they raise fancy cats. Who ever dreamed
that those angels would be old maids with pet cats? Have you heard what a wonderful violinist
Alice Ellens has become? She was heard playing in New York but it must be confessed that
her music is liked better the farther away it is. About a month ago grand opera came here and
Elizabeth Hodde did ballet dancing. She did such wonderful steps, and once so endangered
her life that a lady in the audience fainted. Of course, Dr. Hoye, the well known physician,
was called and she was put under the care of Dorothy Longcore, a trained nurse."

Hotel and his tips will soon make his fortune. Nellie Werkema is a famous hair dresser.
She puts up hair and only charges a dime. Edward Baas is a distinguished orator and his
only topic is 'How to Make Dollars Out of Doughnuts' Elias Rosendall is single and always
shall be, and, as professor in Yale College is known as the 'walking dictionaryf Donald Brandt
is the only human fly alive and he has climbed every building in town."
"Beatrice Wenger, disappointed in love, is traveling all ov-er the world, crying 'Any Kind
of a Beau Will Do.' Doris Symes is teaching hockey to Bedouin bands because it's good
exercise to play it on the sand. Lou Rodebach took advantage of leap year and is now suc-
cessfully and happily married. Wayne Rice plays on his trumpet now in Bob Kirchner's Or'
chestra and makes it worse yet. Marion Bacon is a great attraction at Ramona because she is
doing nothing more than dancing on a crutch. Carole Canfield is teaching turtles how to dive
while George Anderson is explaining his new way of squeezing lemons. Virgil Benson has
spent all these years on growing a mustache and as a result is as poor as a church mouse.
Louise Broene went to Peru, but she raised such a rumpus in the hearts of the people while
there that she also raised a revolution."
"Earl Douse licks envelopes sedately in Phil Walslfs pickle oflice. Katherine Landman is
not the artist we expected she'd be but a pill coater down at Peck's. Johnny Feringa is chief
lamplighter in Northville where he performs his chosen duties every evening. Helen Putt,
Frances Korstange, and Clarice Lybaart are working in a rubber plantation in India. Bessie
Taylor is in charge of a chemical laboratory where she is searching for a stickier type of chewing
gum. Harold Van Stee is the proud steerer of the rear wheels of a big hundred foot hook and
ladder fire engine. Bertrade Smith, Ona Slocum, and Myrtle Ross are very busy compiling a
dictionary of modern slang. Lillian Vander Veen is barbering the bank roll of the big butter
