January Prophec One cold winter evening as I was peace- fully seated in front of the fireplace I began to conjecture as to the fate of our classmates. As I looked into the fire, tongues of flame leaping from the grate revealed panoramic views of the doings of my friends. Pictures flashed before me as on a silver screen. Sitting at a large desk was Ruth Sherman., private secretary to the Premier of France. This scene changed to a cafe in Paris. Here I noticed Joe Lenhard going through the ceil- ing. Also ,l im Wisdom and Wilmer Gerlach having a very good time. Then, there was a loud gunshot and it was none other than Shirley Waters and Sara Lee Coffman, running down the street after two frightened Frenchmen formerly of Selfridge Field. While crossing the intersection I noticed a line of about fifteen children all shouting "mam- ma". There at the head of this fine family was Dee Racicot and her man looking very distin- guished. I This scene changed and the Alps of Switzer- land came into view. Here I saw Bev. Hall and Mary Klein trying to conquer the figure-8 on ice skates. Say, I wonder what all the pillows are f0I-HID-lll-lH'Ul ? A stately looking gentleman appeared in an entirely different environment. Eddie Allen was now Ambassador to England where he had the honor of visiting all the ninth grade girl classes in the schools. The cracklings of the logs as they burned on the grate and the spasmodic leaps of flame brought to view-money-silver dollars. How extravagant it seemed that money should be burned freely on the hearth. A figure presented itself. Staring at it I saw that it was Gordon y Y Archer, superintendent of the mint in Phila- delphia. Sitting in a big office, evidently in East De- troit, was Mary .lane Leonardson co-owner of Simis Men's Wear. Now stacks of books! !! I-Iave the good old school days returned? No indeed, there is Paul- ine Sharpe and Helen Ryan teaching English Five. Suddenly a brick building-yes- a brick building, loomed before me. Again and again I rubbed my eyes. There in 4'Detention Hall" are Barbara Tutty and Helen Wearniotltli still making up time. There, too, I noticed Mona Christie, trying to talk her way out of staying in school. Coaching the U. of M. football "ll" was Herman Schmitz and Louis Paleno, heads of the athletic department at Ann Arbor. Ah yes, Ann Arbor. A car whizzes down the street, then a sudden stop under a shady tree. Sure enough, there is George 'GMope" Morris- sett and Elmer Wills with two pretty coeds. On the next block is a photo studio, Frank's" I believe. There inside I see Frank Shokaluk hard at work. Of course there are a staff of beautiful models and there is Lorraine Panteo waiting patiently for her picture. Who is this coming into "Frank's"? None other than Rita Thomas and Mike. Do you suppose they are getting their wedding pictures taken? Now the fire flickers a little and the scene changes to Mexico, and I see that Carmen San- chez is having a grand time entertaining Clara Reichmann, Arlene Lind and Ellen Maley. I see four very handsome men, too. Say, look at that sombrero walking down the street-oh pardon me, it's Joe Martinez under it.

X: .. . .. si, rx . -:S ' ' it 7 tl FEES ln the eighth grade we were given our first players during our Senior year. They helped opportunity to show our theatrical talent when Mrs. Headley directed a play entitled, "Christ- mas with the Mulligansf' From the ninth through the twelth grade our class was always great in giving parties in our homes. This included several surprise birth- day parties for classmates. We felt the hand of responsibility when we gave our first school dance which we called the "Football Finalev, an orchestra dance after a Roseville-East Detroit game. . W'e'll always remember the school spirit at the athletic games. The majority of students who did not participate in the athletics were enthusiastically sitting on the sidelines as rooters. ,lim Wisdom, Ed Allen, Joe Lenhard and Tommy Renkert were valuable football the rest of the team in having the best seasonal record East Detroit ever had. The greatest thrill of being Juniors came in the form of being the sponsors of the annual ,I unior-Senior party and the J-Hop. Many of our classmates participated in the play, mAh! Men l" The first recognized activity in our Senior year was the cruise to Mackinac Island. Our class was fortunate in having perfect weather. Our Senior play, L'Wedding Spellsf' in Decem- ber was a huge success. Slouch Day, Educational Day and Cap and Gown Day were our last activi- ties as a class. We appreciated the fine coopera- tion of Mr. Harger, our Senior sponsor. Gradua- tion night as we sang Alma Mater we realized that our high school days were ended, and we were ready to go out into society and make our living. '

There is a faint sound of nmsic. Yes-it's in a hep beat. It's Eddie Karn on tour of Mexico with his band. There is Bob Sandoe all sharped up as the star crooner. On-on-on. I looked deeper into the fire and found myself on Palm Beach with Mercel Wein- and still working on her journalism. George W'hitefield was enjoying himself in Florida after returning from a tour of the world. Who is that man on the loose chasing those girls? Oh, it's Larry Rossi-now a famous movie star, and modeling toupees in his spare time. Strolling down the beach I see a crowd gathering. Elaine "Blondie" Pollard has her gym class out today. Margaret Taylor, Willene Judd, Dolores Thilk, and Eileen Sutton are all playing tennis. Hubba-hubba. Who is that couple having a spat over there? Why it's Erika Wanisler and Alan. Say they aren't the only ones, there is Bonnajean Fuess with her new steady. There is that "lovie dovie couple" on their honeymoon. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Renkert having a good time. Walter Graham and Gordon Andrews are panting and drooling as the sun beauties stroll by. Under a beach umbrella I see smoke com- ing! It must he a "hot" conversation about their old sociology class that Bernice David and Martha Fiebig are having. Slowly as the Hallie died out a noise of the crackling of the logs was heard. As in the olden days when our ancestors fell asleep by the fire- place and dreamed of wondrous things, so it was with me. January Class Will and Testament life, the graduating class of January, 1947, do hereby regretfully bestow upon the fortu- nate students, who still have those happy school days to look forward to, all our homework and good marks. Vile also do hereby solemnly swear that the following tcstaments were made while in the soundest mind. Eddie Allen-leaves his quarterback ability to Guido Marasco. Gordon Andrews-wills his line physique to Chuck Smith. Gordon Archer-leaves his diploma to his sis- ter, Betty. ,lean Heinrich-is the receiver of Mona Chris- tie's blond hair. Sara Lee Coffman-leaves her sophistication 'and ability to walk without tripping to Mary Powers. Bernice David-leaves her ability to have a good time to any aspiring graduate. Martha Fiebig-leaves her ability to learn Civics without taking her book home to all future students of Civics. To Charlotte Gardner goes Bonnajean Fuessis long black hair. lVihner Gerlach-wills his fondness for chem- istry to Eva Pfuhl. Walter Graham-wills his love for Miss Rothen- berger's English classes to Cliff Yardley. Beverly Hall isn't leaving anything. She's tak- ing it all with her, even her laugh, thank goodness. Willeiie Judd-wills her ability to get to school on time to anyone who needs it.
