Hazel Green General Hospital
Hazel Green, Alabama,
May 15, 1952
Here it is the eve of the tenth anniversary of our graduation from
high school. It's too bad that you, our class editor, cannot be present
at our reunion. I suppose it is pretty inconvenient to travel all the
way from Honeymoon Island to attend.
Most of the class will be there, but of course there will be a few
who can't be present. For instance, Floyd McCollum, he is Mayor
of New York and can't leave his office, and there's Lila Jean Cole,
superintendent of Vanderbilt Hospital and can't leave her duties.
Gloria Horne was chosen Glamor Girl of 1953 but I don't suppose that
is a surprise. Jean Fisk is making good as a bookkeeper at the live
stock yard in Huntsville. Fate does do odd things, Earl Towry is
president of the University of Chicago. Another member of our class
has also become educational minded, Doris Shrader, who is tutor of
a French family, reads the children to sleep every night with "Peter
Rabbit." I know you would expect Louise McCollum to be living in
Hendersonville, Tenn., but she surprised us all and is teaching school
In every class, however, there are those who insist an getting bitten
by that well known bug called love. Such was the fate of Harold
Brock. Poor Harold! He came home the other night and he had no
sooner gotten in the house than Zarah Towry used the well known
rolling pin on him. Then there is the case of Albert Law, who is
now Mr. Lillian Wheeler. But another kind of bug bit Ren Rush
Shamblin, the movie bug. A movie scout came to Huntsville and rec-
ognized her beauty at once. She is now Clark Gable's leading lady.
Elbert Owen followed an army career. His friends now know him
as General Nuisance of the United States Army. Robbie Whitt is in
Reno obtaining her fourth divorce, this time fnom Melvin Stewart.
Charles Towry lived up to our expectations: he is one of America's
most famous lawyers.
Do you ever hear Richard Graham's program on Monday night?
He is known as the golden voice of radio and Geneva McElyea is his
