Closs Prophecy 49 Park Avenue New York, N. Y. November 28, 1958. Dear Danie, I want to congratulate you on your new organization, "The Fuschia X." Taking Christmas boxes to the penguins at the North Pole is certainly a generous act. A I suppose you are curious 'about what has been going on with our old classmates of G. P. S. while you have been in that ice-olated country for all these years. Anne Cahoon is happily married to a Mr. Bacon and they are rearing fine little strips. Baroness Thomison has just patented her latest perfume-"Jeanelle No. WA." Poor ole Beanie-she's gone to the Beville. Clefty Collins has finally escaped to Cuba with, her contraband of arms crossed by innocent River and Ridge Rats. After much research Sally White published her revealing novel, Love Life in Lithuania or Jo Told Me Wrong. By the way, Jo White, who has recently entered the political game, was unamiously elected Commissioner of Parks. The dog biscuit 'industry is flourishing with the aid of Harriet: "If your dog wails, if your pup moans Just go to the store and buy Roane's bones." The great soprano, Senorita Allen, reached C above the C that is above high D by accidentally drop- ping her grand piano on her toe. Jessica McCurd5g-'was interning as a tree surgeon, but she decided to become a tree psychiatrist instead. She felt it was her duty to the medical profession to discover why the willow was weeping. Nancy and Pellen are now full-fledged physicians at their own clinic in Cleveland. Their motto is: "If you feel like heck, G0 to Marler and Speck." -Q' That master detective, Nancy Hawkshaw Liberman, is busy tracking down that "Terror of the Badlands," who is none other than our old classmate, Patsy-alias Spider Webb. Grace Robinson is very successful at law. She managed to wheedle the judge into pardoning Ann Woodworth, arrested for the fourth time in a brawl with Tricia Trotter at Prescott's Pool Parlorg they are still arguing about which is more important-the line or the backiield. In spite of her acclaimed success as the "Sappho of the Painting World," Janice has managed to settle down in her home. She has two little boys with hair which she has already started peroxi- dizing. Over in Switzerland Ann Libba is conducting a mountain climbing expedition. She hasnft had an accident yet-experience is the best teacher! Have you heard about Mary Ellen's exciting and unusual circus? Cynthea used to be the star attraction in it, she was the dare-devil who would ride a horse over the tightrope without any net. It is too bad her horse happened to lose a shoe during her act one day. Presiding over the funeral rites was Sylvia, who made poor Cynth-ea turn over in her grave by dropping the Bible in the middle of the ceremony. Guess what? C. J. has triplets! Of course you remember she married the president of the Pepsi-Cola Company, whom she met while competing in the contest. They call the children Pepsi, Cola, and Excuse Me. Rita is working on her sequel to the Razor's Edge called Quick! The Bandaid! Winger and her husband have founded the Birmingham Asylugn, commonly referred to as "Poor Richard's All Maniac." It's sad that Dee Feinstein has to be an inmate. It seems that after she finally learned to work the combination on her own locker at G. P. S., safe cracking became an obsession. Gaenor's there, too. She just sits on the floor and stares at her yarn and needles. Then she mutters, "If Wishing will make it so, wishing will make it knit, too." Donna is also a permanent resident. Poor thing thinks she's Al Jolson-all she does is smear black shoe polish on her face and sings, "Sewanee, how I love you, how I love you." You remember Frances Street, our Honor Council president. Well, she uses her motto of "Follow the Straight and Narrow." She is the president of a foundation garment factory in New Jersey. Well, I must hurry now. Reacle'r's Digest has asked me to write a condensation of The Grapes of Wrath. So I'm off to compose "The Raisins of Anger." Your old friend, JOSIE L fwh , N , 123 r X332 X' 9 n t " U QQ! I.

'Closs Will We, the Senior Class of 1948, being in our right minds and, contrary to public opinion, mentally fit, do hereby publish our last will and testament. I, Janie Allen, will my uni-form to Venus. I, Gloria Bean, will my successful tactics to Lane and Forney, who likewise use Chase and Catch methods. I, Cynthea Braly, will my "do-or-die" attitude to Jo-Jo, who'd much rather die. I A h 'll ' " ' ' " , nne Ca oon, wi my nickname Pilgrim to Ann Nichols, who also makes progress. I, Dee Collins, do bequeath my geometrical ability to Martha Ann Britton, realizing that a good line is the shortest distance between two dates. I, Buzz Dettor, will my short uniforms to the class of 1958 in the hope they'll be in style by then. I, Dee Feinstein, will my incomparable persistence to Mrs. Carter, who always wants "to take that up later." I, Donna Field, will my ability to rattle on to the G. P. S. buses. I, C. J. Hall, will my tall stature to the Water fountains which always were such little squirts. I, Danie Hardwick, bequeath my eyes and instructions in how to use them to Elizabeth Hammond. I, Gaenor Hudson, do leave my spectacular "specs" to Mrs. Clark, who never can keep up with hers. I, Ann Elizabeth Latimore, will my red hair to Gwen Gleason, whose locks are such a dull color-poor child. I, Nancy Liberman, will my hydromatic clutch to my Oldsmobile. I, Jessica McCurdy, will my car Q ?y to anyone who is brave enough to try to drive it. I, Nancy Marler, will Albert back to Victoria. I, Marianne Prescott, will my sweet innocence to anyone else who can get away with it. I, Harriet Roane, hand down my taciturnity to peaceful, unruffled Billie Reese Samuels. I, Grace Robinson, will my consistent efforts to make 70 to the school thermometer, which never could. I, Rita Russ, will my excellent carriage to Becky Wood, who always did hate to walk. I, Mary Ellen Selman, will my stately reserve to Ann Clementson, who has so much anyway. I, Josie Sibold, will my pancake to Podie in hopes that she may cover up her freckles 'more successfully than I did. I, Sylvia Smith, will my effervescence to any old bottle of stale Coca-Cola. I, Pellen Speck, do bequeath my proficiency in spelling to Jean Chapman, who was so fond of eighth grade spelling. I, Frances Street, will my ability to can-can to anyone who can. I, Jeanelle Thomison, will the gentleness and quiet of my nature to my rat, Barbara McCollum, who took it all anyway. I, Tricia Trotter, will my hysterical giggling to stately, solemn Gloria Clemons. I, Patsy Webb, will my lethargy on Monday morning to Martha Hackney, who has never lost a week-end yet. We, Sally and Jo White, will our ability to confuse the teachers to the Patten twins. I, Virginia Winger, will my congeniality with the teachers to Peggy Ann Huffaker, who spends most of her class time in the halls. I, Ann Woodworth, will nothing, because I need everything I've got. We, the Senior Class of '48, do bequeath our senior privileges to the oncoming Senior Class, in the hope that they may have some. . ,x1 T' ,.." .F K5 i' if 4534 - J X NYT' 5 nf?" :sf z-ff Hifi' N755 .3925 f 1 .
