The day dawned brightly but, it was a dark day for the Seniors: for they were
soon to leave the halls of Holly, never to return to its classrooms as students.
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. After hours of toil and mental anguish these seven had
dictated the following:

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
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!
