' Now, we’ll find out what Carl Punter has been doing’. He is managing- the “Punter Punsters”. His special attraction is Bill Rowen, the fattest man in the world, who weighs one thousand pounds and keeps Carl almost broke trying to feed him. Well, Bill always wanted an easy job with large meals. “Here is a sports item: Leonard Story broke the world’s record in the mile again last night, in Chicago. It is said that if he doesn’t get some real competition soon, he’s going to be- come a race horse. “Also in the sports flash is a note about Clarence Boeze- man and his wife Helen. It says that he is about to sign a con- tract to play baseball with the Yankees. He must be good to get a contract with them. But he always was good at catching. “Looking down DeMotte way, we find that the Rev. Harry Boer and his wife, Selma, are returning to their church in DeMotte after a trip to Holland. I never thought Harry could find enough courage to ask anyone to marry him, but stranger things have happened; for instance, this article says: Quote: The National Publishing Co. announces that more issues of THE MAN WHO STAYED AWAY have been published than any other in history. The co-authors are none other than Alma Akers and Ruth Dexter. “Unquote.” “Another flash from my reporter friend. Miss Angeline Clark, came through concerning Nurse Johanna Van Kley. Miss Van Kley is on a very important case. She is nurse to a millionaire in New York. Some progress, I would say. Miss Angeline Clark is one of the best reporters in America. “My time is up but you have again heard from each one. Will see you again next year. “73 and goodnight!”

CLASS PROPHECY I, Mildred Hoffman, am just returning from Italy where I have been taking health treatments since shortly af- ter graduation in 1940. I am now seated in a large airplane bound for Chicago from London. I’ll turn on this television set. Well for goodness sakes! Look who that is. Why it’s Bob Huhn. I didn’t know he was a reporter. I think I’ll listen. Sh! he’s talking. . . . “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. This is your Globe correspondent broadcasting from New York City, New York. Tonight as on this night of April 23 for each of the past seven years. I’ll put all war news and others in the back seat and tell you what my classmates of ten vears ap-o are doing now. You know ten years brings a lot of changes in one’s life, so I do this every year. “The first one is a surprise to me, you, and everyone. It concerns Gerrit Grevenstuk. You all know him, the fastest man on four wheels. Well he just broke another record. He told me this morning that he is married. I asked who the lucky girl was, and he told it was Rose AnHerson, that they had been married since June last year. I didn’t think Gerrit could keep a secret that long. Rose, as you know, is Secrtary to Edsell Ford of the Ford Corporation in Detroit. Well, Mr. Ford loses a secretary and Mr. Grevenstuk finds a wife. “A report came from the airport a few hours ago that Anna Toppen has taken off on a crrss country flight. She is also trying to set a new speed record. “Mr. Charles Moolenaar was slightly injured late last night while returning home from southern Indiana where he is employed as manager of the Cheever Dredge Company, Inc. He seems to have done all right for himself and his wife. “An article concerning two more of my chums was just handed to me. It reads: “The Tutti Frutti Ice Cream Co. was purchased by Miss Dora Wright and Miss Ruby Myers. The company has offices in Chicago, New York, Atlanta, New Or- leans, San Francisco, and smaller cities throughout the coun- try.” It seems to me that I remember back in 1939 about their taking ice cream from small children on th ' street in DeMotte. That incident must have inspired them with the manufactur- ing idea. “Marie IntVeld and Dorothy Systma have signed a contract with the Columbia Studio and are now the highest paid comediennes on the screen.

“THE CLASS WILL” We, the class of 1940, in individual and distant pasts, being- about to pass out of this sphere of education in full possession of a crammed mind, well trained memory, and al- most superhuman understanding-, do make and publish this, our last Will and Testament, hereby revoking- and making void all former wills or promises by us at any time heretofore, or mayhap, carelessly spoken, one to the other, as the thought- less. To Mr. Ewart — A senior class that will not cause him as much anxiety as we have. To Mr. Llewellyn — An English class that knows their preposi- tions. To Miss Slocum — A geometry class that will know their arcs and chords. To Mr. Ely — A wide awake agriculture class. To Mrs. Bernard — A Home Economics class that can boil water without burning it. To Mr. Jarrett — A band that will follow directions. And last but not least of our high school teachers and also to our sponsor. To Miss Hewitt — Nothing as she has everything necessary for a perfect life. 1. Rose Anderson wills her quiet and calm ways to Casey. Casey can sit still now. 2. Selma Recker leaves her act of mastering details to Shir- ley Stroup. May she use it for a good purpose. 3. Clarence Bushman leaves his ambition of getting the girl he wants to Chris Walstra. May Chris have as much luck as Buddha. 4. Bill Rowen wills some of his fatness to Grace Terpstra. Wonder if she will be as proud of it as Bill is. 5. Charles Moolenaar wills his musical ability to Genevieve Kooy. May swing come out in full.
