CLASS PROPHECY Well, here we are in the year 1951, just ten years since 1 left “Ole DeMotte”. Many things have happened during the past decade — such things as Casey Sweiringa and Shirley Stroup ex- i hanging “I do s”, and Chris Walstra being sent to South America as a civil engineer. Yesterday I met Gertrude Mak at the premier of Peggy Bahlers latest picture. Gertrude is the star girl reporter of Chica- go’s largest newspaper now. Her husband, Gerald Knip, is teaching dramatics in San Francisco. After the premiere there was a banquet at the Stevens r -otel and imagine my surprise when the hotel doorman turned cut to be Kenny Zeck. From basketball star to doorman. As we entered I saw many familiar faces, one of them being Genevieve Kooy’s, who happens to be the hat-check girl. Was she giving those men the eye! The entertainment was lovely for Bill Orsburn’s orchestra was playing and the great torch singer Grayce Terpstra thrilled the men with her songs. Rumors have said that Grayce and Bill are engaged. I hope they have twins as Shirley and Casey did. We had a wonderful time at the banquet and this morning I went to church and heard Rev. Robert Reeker preach. When I reached home and picked up the morning paper, there on the front page was a picture of that famous dancing team, Jennie Nannenga and Wayne Oliver. They are touring the country with Charlie Ruch and his wife, Beulah, as managers. This afternoon I went to a musical comedy and the cashier was none other than Anna Boezeman. She still knows how to flirt with the boys, too. While we were waiting for the show to begin I heard two men talking behind me. I couldn’t help but hear them ; they turned out to be Jack Evans and Virgil Barker. From their conversation, I learned that Virgil is preparing for a place in the United States Senate and Jack is a Hollywood director who is going to the top fast. During these last two days I’ve seen all of my former class- mates and they seem to be doing fine. I’ll have to say goodbye now and get some sleep for tomrrow I must rehearse my flying trapeze act. — JEAN BARRY Page 1 1
