CLASS PROPHECY It's the year 1990, and we find Porter Orr, now an accomplished man of letters and president of Yale University, seated in his spacious study going over the last pages of the manuscript of his latest work, A DIARY OF MEMOIRS OF MY YEARS WITH THE CLASS OF '53, He is having the diary printed, and the finished product is acclaimed to be his greatest work. Because of this we shall, in the interest of great literature, take a "peek" at some of the entries: August 10, 1973 - To my greatest pleasure I have found that Leon Ash is now striving to break into the educa- tional field after gaining great acclaim in the beverage industry with "Ash's Airtight Avocado juice. " He is fighting for the right to have the installation of his product in all school lunch programs. November ll, 1983 - Today I heard the announcement that the famous lady aviator and another former pupil of mine, Ruth Boebel, has just become the first woman to fly around the world twelve times non-stop. At the press conference she was quoted as saying, "I'll try for twenty next year, " December 24, 1983 - Robert Brosmer, America's foremost antique auto collector, and also a resident here in New York City, was presented today with an ancient six cylinder, two-valve chevrolet, model of 1903, by the K of C fKnights of the Carburetorj, a prominent automobile association, January 3, 1984 - Word has finally come through that the ninty-five railroad workers whose plane crashed over the holidays in Outer Mongolia, have been rescued. By a heroic spirit and stout heart the stewardess of the plane Dee Bogard, carried no less than sixty-four men to safety across an icy cliff before she found her prospective husband, LeRoy Harrison, was not aboard. January 18, 1984 - Wilma Bucksteeg, the famous lawyer, has just won her lone-hundred-thirty-fourth straight case. She has had Donald Crabbe, famed literary critic, acquitted from a charge of libel pressed by actor Frank Underwood, who stated that Crabbe called his latest children's book, BARNABY, THE BALD AND BLABBERING BULL, unfit to be found in the hands of kiddies. February 2, 1984 - All News reports have it that Harley Brown, famous movie star and news commentator, jack- son fDrew Pearsonj Jones, have just yachted to Iackson's private island in the Carribean to spend a few quiet weeks discussing why Iackson's prediction that Harley would marry for the tenth time in January failed to come about. March 21, 1984 - Ray Strasma, who took over the movie Role of Tarzan two years ago, is in the hospital with a compound fracture of his left arm the radio announced today. It seems he broke it while doubling for an ape in his latest picture, APES OF WRATH. March 30, 1984 - A record in the field of politics was set today with the greatest of ease when Jerry Fruin, noted statesman and member of Congress, ended a thirty-four day filibuster. Reports have it that he did it for vocal exercise only. We who knew him are inclined to agree, April 1, 1984 - New York City saw a spectacle today unequalled in the history of show businessg for today was the opening of the newer, more exotic DIAMOND HORSESHOW, under a new manager, Alf Seiling. Alf took over from Billy Rose last Thursday when all of Rose's female help walked out on him. Masked what he is going to do for help, Alf says he'1l just bring along a few of his own. June 26, 1984 - The ticker-tapes have been hammering all day with news of an enormous oil strike on Bob Miller's forty-thousand-acre cattle ranch in central Texas. It seems Bob and his wife, the former Ethyl Golden- stein, were riding the fence -line checking for loose wire when Bob's horse stepped in a gopher hole and went right on through until he struck oil. Bob and Ethyl nearly drowned before they could get away from the gusher. July 4, 1984 - Tragedy has struck upon Independence day. Noted archeologist, Gerald Stemke, and colleague, Henry Schoolman, famed geologist, were almost decapitated to death today in the Saudi Arabian desert where they have been searching for a lost city. They were heating water with which to shave and ran out of fire wood. Gerald threw an old box lying close by into the flames. The box contained dynamite, cLAss wru. j We, the members of the senior class of 1953 of Gilman High School, being' of sound mind and body, do hereby publish our last will and testament, revoking any previous will or wills made by us: To the High School we leave the sound of our voices in the halls, the problems we met and sometimes conquered there, and above all the memories of our happy days.

To Mr. Douglas those flashy band uniforms we've worn for four years, To Mr. Orr all of Red Fruin's office Calls. To Miss Cosner those weekly paragraphs to keep reminding her what really good writing is. To Slim and Ray the chewing gum we've stored under the study hall desks. To Emma and Fern all the scraps we failed to scrape off our plates. I, Elaine Robinette, will my place in physics class to Reva Focken. I, Alf Seiling, bequeath my red suspenders to Little John.

Q- ..- 44-Adi S X Q9-l,1.J-JJJ flax KEN 'N "fx A w as August 28, 1984 - From last reports it seems that Donna Dexter has at long last agreed to marriage. Her famous husband, horticulturist Bernie Curtis, says they plan to hcneymoon on the Riviera. August 30, 1984 - Tom Fordyce, four-time All American, is the new leader of the vocational training depart- ment of Notre Dame. Tom's particular job is the training of class presidents. September 12, 1984 - The class of '53 also produced some famous military wives. Betty Lambert is the wife of four-star general, Gene Krones, commander in the Far East, and Rheta Dexter Bretzman is the wife of Major- General Bill Bretzman, who commands the German-European sector. October 2, 1984 - Fate has brought two more former students of old GHS together: President of the US, Ronald Zeedyk, hired a new private secretary to supplement the fifty-eight he already has. The new one is Pearl Koets. October 9, 1984 - A college friend of mine and a member of the Adventurers' Club in New York told me of three girls who hitchhiked around the world in eighty days. They were Myrtle Kremer, Geraldine Hoover and Elaine Robinette. They said the most enjoyable aspect of the entire trip was the foreign men. November 18, 1984 - Here at Yale I've found a rather unusual circumstance. Two fellow-students in the famous class of '53 are right here in my own col1ege's physics department. But they are fellow students no longer. The two are Mary Kohl, physics instructor and Dick Hansen, pupil. Dick's been with us now for thirty-one degreeless years. He says with luck he hopes to graduate this spring. Professor Kohl says, "Don't count on it. " December 1, 1984 - I was informed today that another former student is now a member of the FBI, Ted Thees- feld. They say his specialty is catching drivers who run into school buses. January 6, 1985 - Col. Robert McCormick, publisher of the greater Chicago Tribune, has told me today of an accident to his best photographer and alumni of our school, Wayne Haskins. Wayne is said to have been covering the wreck of the luxury liner, OGLETHORPE, when she started to sink. In his haste to get a picture, he got his camera turned around and discharged the flash-bulb directly into his face. The doctors say he'll be blind for six weeks. February 2, 1985 - Another contribution to literature is just off the press. Adventuress Janie Templeman, just back from a safari into Africa, has printed another best seller, THE SNOWS OF SHASKOKIE. February 8, 1985 - Three new neighbors moved into my block last evening and very nice neighbors they are, too, Dee Schule, Elsie Lange and Georgeanne Schacht, fashion designers for Saks of Fifth Avenue, made residence at the Carleton Arms. The penthouse is listed on the register as being a "bachelor's" apartment. February 23, 1985 - Sports announcer Bill Stern told me today that Dick Crawford, top American wrestler, has agreed to a bout in France against anyone willing to fight. No American fighter will enter the ring with Terrible Dick, so he is forced to fight in Europe where he hopes his reputation is not known. March 1, 1985 - Just delivered to me was a novel that I've tried desperately to purchase all over the world, but up to now I have never been able to do so. The rare masterpiece I've finally obtained is Chuck Garrison's im- mortal KERMITT AT KOLLEGE, which originated in 1953 at Gilman High and is now in its eighty-second print- ing. Heaven knows how it ever made it! These, friends, are the thirty-seven from the CLASS OF '53 who have found a place for themselves in the world. I saw each one in the bloom of his or her youth and know the staunch characters built there. With this you have my complete works, "for better or for worse, until death do us part ", and besides, my cook, Esther Cotter, has just come in with my tea! 1 A 1 1 45 i 19 3 , .5 gi " L, if c -X, -H L.
