Attention was turned to a slixn graceful woman with short red tinted hair, who spoke to Amy, "How did you ever lose the drearn you had of becoming a hermit?" Amy quickly answered, "Oh, that was just a silly whim I had. I think it was mainly because of my folks trying so hard to make a model of me, and I never did like being dressed as if I had just stepped from a picture. You know that, Pat!" "Yes, but becoming the great explorer you are today is a far cry from becoming a hermit!" Q Everyone turned as a beautiful blonde with a high musical voice spoke. "Not much different than your old dream of becoming a professional player on the American Red- head Team and then turning out to be a famous ballet star." Pat turned and laughingly said, "I think my folks were more than a little disappointed but not surprised at my not becoming a college professor. Remember the fun we had with our crazy dancing every time we heard some music ?" Janice laughed and replied, "How well l do and also how well you liked to act and sing. If' someone would have told me then I would now be a taxi driver, I would have died laughing, I really had my heart set on being a doll collector." Someone asked, "How did you come with your music as I recall your folks had dreams of you becoming an opera singer. Janice then replied, "Oh I still like to sing, but I have frequent attacks of laryngitisg this ruined my chances of being a singer. Not that I'm really sorry!" Just then I heard the clock strike twelve o'clock and someone called that dinner was ready. After explaining that I would be unable to stay any longer, I hurried to my car with my head spinning with ideas! As I reached the office I was greeted with a scornful look from the Editor. "How did you expect to write an article on the reunion when you didn't even stay until it was over ?" He asked. "How does this sound chief?" I asked excitedly. "The three b's of the Class of '50 ? It would include: The parents dreams for their future, their own high school dreaxns for themselves, and what they really are today!" "GREAT!" The chief shouted, "Get in there and write it for the next edition." I sat down at my typewriter and began typing the things I had heard at the reunion of the Class of '50 of good ole Holly High! . l Z

Prophecy of Class 1950 As I hurried to work that bright morning little did I know the assignment to be put before me today. I reached the office of the editor and knocked quietly. "Come ini" was the gruff reply which met me. I opened the door and walked in smiling, but was stopped by the unusually gay face of the Editor. After seating myself he began to speak. '3Esther, I have a big job for you. The Holly Springs Class of 1950 is having a reunion today and they have asked me to send one of my reporters to interview them. It will be like all class reunions, but I would like you to do your best and give us a different angle on the get-togetheri " As I came closer to Holly Springs I still was unable to think of something different to write. I drew my convertible to a stop before the school. Still mystified, I walked up the stairs to Mr. Heacock's office. After telling him of my assignment he gave me full excess to the records of the Class of 1950. Sometime later I emerged frorn the office with a plan forming in my mind that was little short of a genius. I walked bravely to the gym and was greeted with the smiling faces of the class. They greeted me warrnly and then continued their merrymaking. Suddenly a distinguished looking gentleman hurried in. "I'm sorry I'm late folks, but I was up late last night working on research for that new star I discovered and overslept this morning". This must be Elden Baker, the only boy of the class. Interrupting the conversation, I said, "Pardon me but weren't you planning on becorning an Admiral in the navy?" This question aroused curiosity among the other members. Elden only laughed and said, "I was but there were too many decks to scrub before I could reach that rank." A tall nice looking young lady added, "Yes, and remember how your folks were determined that you were going to be a poet, but then we seldom fulfill our parents dreams!" I A quiet woman with a baby in her arms asked, "Evelyn, weren't your parents anxious for you to become a concert pianist?" Evelyn flushed a little and replied, "Yes, Mary but I always had the drearn of becoming the owner of a huge dairy herd." Someone added "Why yes, you were always a strong member of the boys 4-I-I weren't you?" Everyone laughed recalling the fun we had kidding her about it. Mary then commented thoughtfully, "And here you are a model homemaker. My how things have changed!" A dark jolly woman looked up from the pictures she was musing over and said, "They certainly have, you were going to be an old maid remember ? She chuckled gaily, "And your folks wanted you to become a mortician!" . Mary smiled, "I had nearly forgotton Ilene, and here I am happily married and the mother of eight children." 'Ilene leaned back in her chair and laughed heartily. A smartly dressed blonde spoke up, "Say Ilene you shouldn't be laughing. Remember how your folks tried in every way to interest you in writing ?" At this Ilene smiled broadly and replied, "Well Amy, I'm just as happy where I'm at. I'll soon be made manager at the Webster Dictionary factory." Amy remarked, "You never did get Webster out of your mind did you?" Everyone laughed, recalling the days at Holly High. ll

Knowing that their time was limited, these six girls and one boy sent for Bettie Ericksen and Ina Ronfeldt, who they had chosen to be the executors of their will. When these two arrived they, realizing there was little tirne left, iznmediately began the transaction.
