SENIOR CLASS One bright morning of May, l952, found me, Bettye Burson, busily getting together my be- longings which I had accumu- lated coming over from Europe. My arrival had been generously announced in every paper throughout the country, and as l glanced over the rail l suddenly realized my importance by the vast crowds of people awaiting to see the first female Secretary of War return to America after seven years control over enemy territories. The moment had come -the flash of a camera blinded- Robert Schaedle, the world re- nouned photographer had taken my picture. The editor of the ' New York Times, Archie Epstein followed him. After battling the mob a few hours my personal adviser, Dorothy Shankman, and I were received by the newly elected President of the United States, and also our old classmate, ferry Tillman, and Senators Billie Iane High and Mary Louise Carpenter from Tennessee. The committee had made reservations at the Hotel Grace owned by the genteel girl of the class of '45 Melita met us at the door and lead us to a ring side tablein full view of the orchestra. Harold Osburn's orchestra was playing this week to pay for the room he used the year before. Other members in the band were Billy Barfield, Nick Speros, and Ioe Tanner. A shrill voice calling "Cigars, cigarettes, chewing gum, mints" caught my attention and l looked round to see Louise Young. Other cigarette girls em- ployed were Velma Van Wickel, Marie Ienkins, and Rosemary Hines. Chambermaids included Anna Marie Spinosa, Mabel Kurts, Betty Iones, and Betty Sue Forwalter who had become independently wealthy by their new profession. Presently our dinner was served by the head waiter, Ierry Crook. l-le told us the chef, Vernon Forgione had prepared the meal with special care and hoped we enjoyed it. The floor show was now in process and Peggy lean Yandell hadn't lost a thing she possessed in '45!! The only change was that she had thrown away the batons and picked up the fans. Betty Kirk- ham was next on the program giving a nerve racking 1 f f BETTYE BURSON ballet. After learning there would be no more of our acquaintances, Dorothy and l were ushered to our room by the bell boy, Gene Weaver. On learning that lack Dallas was piloting the plane over from Europe to America, we had considered our safety and ven- tured by boat. The next morning found us up early ready for the busy days ahead. We were awakened at lU a.m. by the Coca-Cola correct time operator, Io Ann Miller. The War Department had been kind enough to send us two chauffeurs to drive us around during our stay in New York. The boys turned out to be Billy Bennett and Thomas Keeton. We learned from them that Robert Finn and lean Beaton had said "l Do" and had started housekeeping. The first engagement of the day was to speak to the Presbyterian Church on the conditions in Europe. To my great surprise the minister turned out to be Louis "Red" Williams. His drawling Southern accent had at last been altered to a rasping Northern tone. Among the ladies at the Circle Meeting were Virginia Lineberger, lewel Reynolds, lean Tanner, Nettie Thompson, Peggy Gassaway, and Evelyn Noe, all of whom were active workers of the church. At twelve noon we stood waiting for the chauffeurs and when at last they arrived we learned they had lost their cash rolling the bones, so good natured Dorothy slipped the boys their spending money. We decided to get out at Twenty-five West Forty-third Street and take in all the sights. Walking down the Avenue we saw a sign that read HRichartz's Exclu- sive." On inquiry we heard the proprietor was Mary Richartz. We took the elevator up and entered her private office. We spoke for several hours about some of the queer creatures we went to school with. She told us that Bob Williams stuck to his dog shoe trade and owned a small bootery in Memphis. Those em- ployed there are lames Willis, whose wife, Lorraine, was a plain housewife, Carl Dacus, lames Russell, Lloyd Adams, Robert lohnson, and George Thomas. Working in Mary's l-lut were Geneva Ford, lane Eer- ber, Kathryn Poulos, l-lildred Mims and lohn Barton Cemployed as office boyl. Bidding the gang goodbye we walked a short distance when we noticed two extremely well-dressed women leading a beautiful set of English wolf hounds. On coming closer we could see a slight resemblance to Dot Morrison and lerry Glasgow. Yes, it was they!! They had married in a double ceremony to two wealthy bankers and were Page Twenty-Five
