The date on the calendar shows May 14, 1962 and I
Ellie Durham trying to make up my mind whether to go to col
lege, be a beauty operator or become a house wife, while I
am working in the Cozy Cafe in Colby I was trying to con
centrate on my work when all of a sudden I looked up and
there stood Robert Lauritsen wearing a great long beard I
asked him what he was doing, and he told me he had married
an Indian woman who does his work while he sits in his easy
chair looking and listening to the ball games on television
I asked him if he could sit around nd do nothing all day
and still make a living He says HA lot of men that do as I
do can't make a go of living, but neither do they have a
wife who is as good a worker as my wife N We chatted a while
longer, and then I told him that I was going to make sure of
my career by next month Then I was going to take a trip to
Florida, where I could visit some of the colleges ard beauty
salons and decide on my l1fe's work Robert and I exchanged
The next month I found myself on a train to Florida
had never ridden on a train before and was getting quite a
thrill, when all of a sudden I heard a loud shriek of laugh
ter I turned around to see what the commotion was, and to
my suprise there in the middle of the train sat Claude sur
rounded by girls As soon as I recognized him I went over
to find out why so many girls were clustered around him H
told me that he had started out by getting away from girls,
because they always caused a lot of trouble Finally he had
decided to go with a few now and then, and he told me that
every where he went he found one he liked better than the
last, s he just brought them all along to be sure he
wouldn't leave the one he liked best at home I asked him
what he was going to do with the jilted after he found out
out for themselves I told him that I had seen Robert about
a month ago, and he had been married He asked about Phyllis
Loseke We hadn't seen her since she graduated
When we reached Georgia, I asked Claude where he was
getting off He said he was going to go to Florida to visit
one of his friends I told him that I was going there too
After we had arrived at a small town in Georgia we went to a
cafe to get a meal Lo and behold Phyllis Loseke, who had
finally become a movie actress, was sitting in a booth She
told ua she was on her way to Tallahassee, Florida when we
told her we were also bound for Florida, she decided to come
with us We were on our way a ain but before we reached
Florida we saw a sign that said Lauritsen Barber Shoo
just from curiosity we all went in Guess who was the barber
yes it was Robert Lauritsen He told us his wife had revel
led No longer could he sit around idle He had moved south
for his health and started up a barber shop While we were
talking two customers came in, and right away we recognized
them Mr Crawford and Mr Evans had decided that they would
teach in Florida for a few years to see if the kids were any
meaner than those at Gem Well there we were all together,
the senior class of 1953, their sponsor and superintendent
just chattering away until it was time to depart Claude,
the girls who were still following him, Phyllis and I had to
leave After a couple of months in Florida I decided defin
italy that I would become a beauty operator
. . e
which one he decided to keep. He told me they could look
