living in the Honie Ponnie Apartments owned by Floyd and Fred Heyer. We rushed back to the hotel and found Ted Petrovsky perched on a piano. After listening to his sob story we left for our engagement at the Stork Club with the Congressmen from Tennes- see, Leslie Inman and Walter Underwood. My atten- tio nwas called to a lovely striking figure of the young lady selling cigarettes and as she neared our table we could see it was Miriam Lee Vine. Shortly, we were attracted by a clamorous noise and turned just in time to see the bouncer, Billy Oswald, picking up George Hutchinson, the New York play boy, and pitching him in Eugene Collie's squad car. We stopped and talked to Oswald and he told us that Martha McCuller, Ioy Wilson, Martha Davis, Angeline Robilio, Doris Stewart, Carlene Shumate, luanita Patterson and Dorothy Weinman had all taken husbands. He also mentioned that Frank Wilder and Kathryn Dozier had finally given in to one another and were living on a real country farm in Mississippi. We left early to go to see the stage show on Broad- way and Lola Thomas sold us the tickets. Ushers in- cluded loyce Scruggs, Vivian Potts, Mary Rose Brown, lrene Stergios and Doris Lainbirth. We were lead to our seats and the M. C. just walked out and it was no other than Donald Kaurez. He announced the first number to be lacgueline lay in a neat polka act. We understand now why Kaurez had chosen the profes- sion. lean Stubblefield, Mary Lewis, Wilma Hurley and Thelma Weeks gave a brilliant tap number. The out- standing number of the evening was given by the famous Gypsy Dance Team,'Phyllis Anton and lames Wright. lust outside the show stood a bent lady calling "shoe strings, razor blades, bobby pins." To our amazement it was Bettye Sue Wildes. At the hotel we bade the boys goodbye and bought a paper from Carolyn Brenner's newsstand. We were taken up in the elevator by Edith Lowe. ln answer to my ques- tions, Edith told us that Wilma Hines, Bobbie Nell Sullivan, leanette Pine, and Ruth Bishop were also operators, and Nevis Ouarin, and Frances Butler were bareback riders with the Wilder Circus, owned and operated by Lindy. l read in the paper where Choate's and Carter's Fifth Avenue stores owned by Earl and Harvey were having there annual fashion show and the Powers model, Mildred Martin, was going to be the outstand- ing attraction. Other models announced were Rob Reid Smith and Sue Kathryn Rollins. Someone knocked on the door and it was Dick Iones with a Western Union message. The telegram was announcing plans Page Twerily-Six for us to be in Reno as soon as possible. The follow- ing morning we were taken to the Pennsylvania Sta- tion and red caps, Charles Gagilio and Dewitt lohns- ton took our bags. Serving as hostesses on the train were Syilvia Wolf, Glyn Etta Tomlinson, Carolyn Massey, Frances Baruchman, and Audrey Brown. Roy Wilmoth came thru selling sandwiches later in the day. We arrived at Reno early the next morning and caught a cab driven by Sarah Rook. Also driving cabs these days were Leslie Iones, Mary Iudith Sherrod, Lorraine Achord, and Alice Miller. She had heard that Doris Steed owned a beauty shop and Evelyn Nelius and Lila Lee Phillips were her so-called slaves. We bade her farewell in front of the courthouse and my eye caught that of Ronald Taylor. He certainly hadn't changed a bit and learning he was there forthe fifth time to be set free, I was more certain. We entered and the three of us glanced down the registry and learned that the former Reba Brown, Ruby Lee Couch, and Shirley Ferguson had also paid recent visits. We got away from the courthouse earlier than expected and returned to the hotel. Sitting behind the desk snoozing was Thomas McDonald, manager. He told us that lean Hudson, Doris Ethridge and Dorothy Bus- sell were his chief cooks. We read in the paper in striking headines where Rosa Paller had bought all the Cossitt Libraries in the country. I saw Forrest Hettinger in a corner pondering over a shoe trying to get it shined. We left Reno for Memphis by plane the next day and it was shortly after we arrived when we heard that William Seymour and William Ieffries were com- pelled to buy the Model Drug Store. One Sunday evening strolling thru Court Square we heard a familiar voice speaking from the text and on coming closer we knew it was Eugene Curtis. We visited Kress' early Monday morning and Adele Mendelson, Theresa Chism, Ioyce Stocks, Dorothy Schneider, and lean Poulos were working within. Passing by the book counter we sawia book written by Annabel Miller. We met our friend Sylvia Shiff- man for dinner. She was president of the First National Bank. Mary Nell Saltz was one of her incapable ste- nographers and Edward White and Gwindle Parmten- ter were tellers. We checked our hats at the Peabody with Lois Iohnson, and went in for lunch. Later, as we drove past Fisher Aircraft we saw Betty Hughes, Sidney Waller, Anna Margaret Helmke, leanette Currie, and Patsy passing thru. I suddenly realized we had seen or heard of every member of the great class of '45, and now l could return to my vital position and get down to work. T J 'tl' W 51 C: 'I T9 to -Ks 'll X r ee J
