Ten years ago began the incident conceming Bridey Murphy and her reincarnation, Much research has been done on the subject and now everyone knows who he was in his previous life. Let us drop in at a party, a 'Come as You Were Then' party which the classmates of "56" now have in full swing. As we enter the ballroom, amid the voices and gaiety of the party, we first see Adam and Eve, Dorothy Chase and Charlie Classen, sitting under the nee of forbidden fruit and eatlng kumquats, Kumquats? I 1 Could it be., , 2 Yes, it is. He hasn't changed a bit. It's Johnny Bargmann, Sheik Haja Baby, and his harem of gorgeous wives. They are accompanied by Harlen Wind- horn, maker of baby shoes, It seems Harlen, in his previous life, had a great deal of business as the Sheik had 500 wives, Well, for heaven's sake! Sure enough, It's John Fruin attired as the mighty Atlas, In a wheel-barrow before him he pushes a globe, since he, in his present state, does not have the strength to carry the world on his shoulders. At the east doa appears Bill Jones attired In a dowdy brown patched robe of burlap, He claims that in his other life his name had been Brother Sebastian. At his side is Sis- ter Bernadine, Kathleen Brockman, who claims she joined a convent to get rid of a string of money-hungry men, Harkl I--there is the sound of clattering hoofs and the cry of "Whoa, Horse, Aw, come one--Whoa, I say." You see, this is Don Gerdes. He is a centaur-half man and half horse, Now the two have separated and are Living together. Oh myl I didn't know about this party when I decided to tell you about lt, but I suppose I musn't miss a thing, Madame Francine, who is Marilynn Keene, a French coiffeurlst is giving a new hair styling to Ruthann Lake, Yes, I do believe it is, . . yes, lt's a poodle cut, This is terrible, Lady Godiva should have kept her long hair, I think, How sweet, by the fire sits Gloria Relghel, She is Grandma Moses' great-grandmother On hef lap sits Bill Miller, her beautiful silky Persian cat, He purrs contentedly as she strokes his ears. A It seems that it is show time, Let's take time out from our tour to watch the show. Why. . . I never knew, There's Shirley Zillins and Geraldine Guren dancing around the stage. Shirley was a hula dancer, Swivel Hips by nameg and Geraldine was the first dancer at Minsky's. Bonnie, who was once a bar maid, is now serving mint julip to Richard Savoie, the former Ulysses S. Grant, leader of the Union army, Look out, Bonnie, here comes Carrie Nation, who is now Joanne Strough, She's still carrying her hatchet and tearing up the saloons. It appears that Helen Krones had an interesting life. What a flapperll Dig that Charleston!! Go gal, go. We can't forget the sports women of the preceding era. There's Sally and Julie, the first women wrestlers. All right, Sal, no illegal punches. . Oh brother, get a load of this! I I There's Joyce Hamilton gnawing on a human leg bone. I think she was a cann1baL Better still, take a gander at that painted-up witch doctor dressed in feathers. Ha, that's Don Miller trying out some of the old charms on the females. You know, I can't believe it, Nancy Schriefer always had a terrible fear of birds, but look at her over there stuffing that owl. Can you believe that she was once a bird taxldermist, Good old Roger never changed a bit, There he is, Gregor Mendel, standing in the corner still arguing 'Which came first, the chicken or the eggr' We have a baby among us, Patsy Flesher tells me that she is just now living her first life, Well, watch what you're doing with that spray gun, Patsy Leisure, I don't care if you were a cockroach exterminator in old southern mansions. Oh, oh, it looks like a brawl over by the fish pond. Who is it? What's going on? It looks as though Jack the Ripper, Howard Miller, and Mad Ludwig, Betty Keene, are having a fight. Mad Ludwig just knocked the Ripper into the fish pond. Do you remember how small Pat Woodard always was. She's here tonight, but look at the size of that woman, She's an absolute Amazon, Watch out, Jack, your wife is making time with the caveman Uggh, Dean Sjuts, inventor of the stone ax. I say, Uggh, for what purpose did you invent the ax? Yes, I agree with you, Every well-dressed caveman should carry one. These two certainly make an interesting couple, Eric the Red, and Davy Crockett. Eric, Jerry Tammen and Davy, Leroy Perzee are discussing their exploits in travel, 'Pieces of Eightl Pieces of Eight! Awk, Shrivel their bones, cut off their ears, walk the plank, Awk, Avast ye landlubbers, here comes Long John Silver. " All right, Judy Cawthon, climb up the foremast and let's have no more squawking out of you. The match-maker, Shirley Wilken, who was previously Venus, Goddess of Love, is proposing a match between Cicero, the great orator, Dale Strasma, and Joyce Decker, a Spanish woman bullfighter. If that match ever came about y Cicero would do enough talking for both of them and Joyce could be the bread' winner, Would that suit you, Dale? Amid the clatter of pails and the cry of 'Sooie Piggies, Sooie,' we see Janet John- son out slopping the hogs. In the house yard is her mother, Marlee Tholen, doing the family washing, She's gone, boyl She thinks she is the original Irish washer woman. In the distance I hear the sound of trumpets. List, I do believe they are coming nearer. It's a spectacular sight. Gerry Whittle: draws nigh in his Roman chariot, I say, Gerry, who are you supposed to be and who is that with you? Ben Hur--well who is that with you? Virginia Zachgo, what is she doing with you? Hmmm' What a screwball occupation, Do you mean to say she accompanies you on your chariot rides and continually grease the axles? I wonder where the smoke is coming from. Look, it's Gerry Orr. Run, Gerry, the revenuers are coming., Don't forget to get rid of the evidence. Here, give it to me. Who is that gaudy dame with all of the drapery over her face? Sie looks as though she might have come from Egypt, Let's listen to the conversation which she is carrying on with the man in the loincloth and the head crown, "34fqt?8zS"leff'fS"," said she, "8l'0'S'ldH?4-'8LX'S-'i2iQ7." Said he. I I don't get it. I can't understand what they're saying. Is there in interpreter in the house? I'll be, it's Ed Smith. Do you know what that Egyptian dame and the half-naked fig eater are talking about? You ought to know since you, in your other life, were a world news correspondent, Do you mean to tell me that that gaudy doll is Bea T ammen? Well, who is that guy she is talking to? Reilly, you mean Ryland Reilly? That's too bad about Bea's husband. Do you mean to say she is actually making plans with Ryland to mummify her poor deceased husband and then lay him away near the tomb of King Tut? I'm sorry, friends, but I must depart, The evening is waning and Morey Bernstein will soon be here to undo his hypnotic trance, It has certainly been an interesting and informative evening, I only regret that I must leave so soon. Perchance we shall meet again in a later life. PATRONS A, F.
