I Class Prophecy 1956 U After an absence of l0 years I find myself speeding across the new Narrows Bridge anxious to see the new boom town on Puget Sound and look up my class- mates of 1946. A warning siren informs me that in my anxiety to get to Gig Harbor I have exceeded the new speed limit of 75 miles per hour. As I pulled over to the curb, a tall familiar man stepped up ready for action. I mentally prepared myself for a tongue lashing. Imagine my surprise when the beaming face of a former classmate, George Lovrovich, greeted me. A few minutes of pleasant recollections with George and I learned the where-abouts of my var- ious classmates. Helen Shadbolt is the owner of the Super-Duper Gas Station 'fea- turing Orlando Peterson's minute-man-service. I was told the helicopter now dropping in at the service station is probably that of Norma Ienkins' Dairy Farm. Evelyn Severtsen had just been through on route to her next performance in the Gig Harbor rodeo. Upon asking where I could stop for a present for my Mother I was informed of Vivian Andrea's Iewelry Shop. She developed such a passion for diamonds she decided to make a busi- ness of it. I was hardly on my way when a large attractive Sea Food Restaurant caught my eye. Being hungry, I decided to stop in. To my great surprise the owner was Iohn Gilich whom I met at the door. As I sat down at one of the tables a familiar sound reached my ears. I glanced around the room and I saw Lee Markovich at the piano playing his favorite Boogie Woogie. A note to Lee brought him to my table. I learned from him that his band, for the evening show, featured the clever arranging and trombone playing of Kenny Dulin and the singing of Edith Spinney. On my way again I headed in the general direction of the 300 foot tower of the radio station of IERK. Even as I approached, I heard the voice of the announcer and owner, Charles Rutland, advertising Harland Schulz's Dancing Studio for Restless Feet. In a window of the many studios I noticed Mary Iahn warming up her vo- cal cords in preparation for a 15 minute radio program. A notice on the studio wall of a speech by the city mayor, Iohn Insel, reminded me I hadn't had a conversaiton with his honor for several years. Unable to get my call through, I headed for the telephone building and the head supervisor. Stepping into the elevator I met the elevator girl, Lucy Skerbini, who has found out life cer- tainly has its ups and downs. Anne Fosness, who I found to be the head supervisor, explained that the trouble was due to all circuits being busy trying to locate Gig I-Iarbor's handsome doctor, Bill Green and his nurse, Nona lean Eide. Lloyd Ahl- berg, trying to prove he could fish for salmon from his airplane, had crashed. News of the crash ,brought Wendell Samuelson, the Harbor's Digby O'Del, to the scene in search of business. While I was at the telephone office a call came in from the reporter of the Penin- sula Gateway inquiring of my presence in Gig Harbor. She also informed me that another classmate, Lois I-Iofbauer, had been in Gig Harbor recently. To my great surprise the reporter was Pat Shannon. Another day has gone and as roving geographic writer I must be on my way to other parts of interest in the world. Edith Ross
