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.
