So Ipacked up and within minutes I was at my far away destination. While there I decided to take a look on earth and see what my classmates were doing. From my window, I could see a huge building taking shape as I sat thoughtfully before the fire. Watching the building rise higher into the sky, Isaw it as an individual, created from a plan. I closed my eyes and thought of this building in com- parison with lives - the lives of my classmates who will soon graduate from Elm City High School. I thought of each of them as a building - an individual - and of Elm City school and its teachers as the plan which has worked to shape each of their lives for the past twelve years. I began to wonder what each of them would do with the knowledge they had acquired at school, just how they would fit into the pattern of life? My thoughts seemed to open a door to the future, and I could see clearly what fate held in store for them. Suddenly, I stood inside a beautiful hospital where Joyce Winstead was receiving a plaque for her outstanding work in cerebral palsy. Down a corridor hurried Jeannette Watson, who is now supervisor of nurses. This scene faded and before me I could see the huge DuPont Plant. As the shift changed and the men came out I recognized Willard Pridgen, who is now one of DuPont's leading chemical engineers. The DuPont Plant vanished and I found myself before a very modern television station. Entering, I immediately recognized Joe Smith and J, E. Wood. They can now be seen on CBS Television starring in the Hillbilly Hit Parade. Hearing the constant tapping of a typewriter, I ventured into a large office and saw Peggy Jenkins and Janet Davis diligently typing. They were enjoying their jobs as typist and bookkeeper here. Suddenly the sound of the typewriter died away and in its place came the beautiful voice of Sylvia Davis, soon to be Mrs. Robert Fulcher, who was rehearsing with Doris Webb. As the station faded into the distance a large super market loomed ahead of me. The owner, Ronald Hooks, was busy helping Jean Robbins, Joyce Farmer, Cleo Whitehead, and Ruth Upchurch with their weekly shopping. Next door, I saw the Strickland Meat Packing Company owned by Billy Strickland, and the Esso-Standard Oil Company now being managed by Charlie Davis. The station vanished and I stand at the airport watching the planes come in. Among the hurrying crowd I saw George Vernon Williams and Lucy Page. George is a pilot and Lucy is a stewardess with the Trans-World Airlines. Turning to go, I spied three well known personalities, Nancy Jo Whitehead, Susan Garner, and Patsy Fleming. Nancy is quite a successful model, and Patsy has just made a hit on Broadway, both having realized their ambitions. Susan, working her way to the top, is now heard weekly on "The Hit Parade." Now as though a vision were appearing, after all the excitement and rush of the cities and airports, I saw Katie Batts working as a telephone operator, Willie Dawes and Melvin Garrett receiving trophies for auto racing, Elma Farmer working as foreman of the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, B. J. Jackson commanding the United States Army, Charles Viverette breaking all records of speed as an air force pilot ace, and Lois Boyette decorating the interior of Miss Wright's new home. I opened my eyes and realized that the men had stopped work on the building next door. I must have dropped off to sleep - and yet I don't feel sleepy. Maybe fate was just letting me take a special peek into the future.
