FROM OUR SCHOOL SLATE The time is the twenty-first century and as we walk into the Plaza Building which houses a large rocket ship concern, we run into Billie Sage cmd Leona Hatch, former editors of the Citadel, preparing to take a trip to Huntertown, our old home town. Having been asked to go along we all entered the ship and took off for the scene of our childhood. In just a few minutes, our ship landed at the Huntertown Haven for Happy Rocket- ships. Stepping nimbley from the ship we proceed- ed through the revolving doors and somehow man- aged to get tangled up with about the tallest :nan we had ever seen. Upon closer observation we recognized Ioe Anderson, world famed as the tallest man in the universe, with him was his wife, the lovely and charming Suzanne Bobay. loe and Suzanne had but a few minutes to talk and immediately began to inform us as to the whereabouts of our former classmates. Russell Sordelet and Don Plummer were engaged as part- ners in a business, teaching students how to wreck a car in the quickest, easiest method with the least amount of injury to themselves. Their silent partner in this enterprise is Bill Bremer who then sells more cars CFords naturallyl to the students' parents. In this way they have managed to make themselves billion-aires. However, joe says, the richest man in Huntertown is the town bum, Wayne Waters, who through the generosity of the Huntertown public begs millions every week. 'iWell," says foe, "we have to leave, Take care of yourselves." Waving aloha to that happily married couple we continue down the main street, Ritter Avenue, named after a great native philanthropist, Dora Q. Ritter, who donated millions to the towns- people. "Oh, what a beautiful gown!" said Billie, spying one in the window of Elsworth P. Penny- pincher Paree Salon. This lovely shop is now owned and operated by Lois Caley and Helen Gump, second and third wives of E. P. Penny- pincher. flt is rumored that they married him for his trillionsl Poor Elsworth P., who because he could not undergo the rowdy ways of his last two wives, passed away very suddenly. Rushing in to try on the gown, Phyllis Croxtan, a sophisticated saleslady in every sense of the word, waited on us. The Shop, operated in the true way of a Paris shop, had their clothes modeled. From out of the silken draperies came Rosemary lffinton with her fair hair drawn back in a chignon and her beautiful figure covered with the lovely gown, she walked with the inspiring grace of a model Gazing around me I saw Betty Hanauer Karasiewcz, wife of the tobacco auctioneer, talking over the merits of the gown with Elva Shafer Whonsetler, wife of that terrific basketball center, Bernie "Flash" Whonsetler. Sitting alone over in the corner, looking very uncomfortable, was Roy Peters, trying to choose a gown for his wife, Pa- tricia Couture Peter's birthday. Billie finally de- cided to buy the gown and so we left the shop and again wondered among the multitudes on Ritter Avenue. Rounding a corner Leona bumped into a small and timid little lady with a pince nez perched on the end of her nose and several library books in her arms. With a cry of recognition she tippytoed toward us and said a quiet hello. The little old lady was Anne Rondot, chief librarian. She invited us to come to the library and visit so we ankled over. Wandering around in the children's section we were surrounded by the Surfus-Stienbarger clan who were too numerous to mention. They were quietly driving their nurse, Deloris Fritz, crazy. Walzing on into the research department of the building, we notice a horrible odor. Finding the source to be Professors Smith and Brown, still eligi- ble bachelors, burning sulfur in the drawers of the table to keep the atmosphere just right for their further research on chemistry. We rushed out into the back corridor only to burst into the middle of an argument between Murray Gause and his wife, Carol Tucker Gause, as to who will go in and re- move the two profs. Raising the window to get a breath of fresh air, a newspaper smacked Leona in the face, and as she disengaged herself we noticed the six inch headlines on the sensational devorce of singer Don Opliger and his wife, Actress LaVern May. Don sued for divorce because he found he was still in love with LaVern's sister, Eileen, and said he only married LaVern because he did not want to desert his dear old class. His attorneys in the case were Eva Iohnson, noted for her bass voice and power of expression, and Ruth Widner, noted for her eloquency in the court- room. Still amazed at this turn in the life of Don and LaVern we left the pretentious building and who should we meet walking arm in arm along the street but Theodore Meyer and sultry blonde wife, the former Rosemary Stirlen, who ask us to be guests at a dinner party honoring Ara lean Shank, authoress of the famous book "Why Wou1dn't Richard Open the Door For Kilroy." Other couples at the party were to be Robert Frazier and his wife, Dorothy Leiterp Dale Sloffer and his wife, Dee Weaver, who reside in suburban Podunk in rose covered cottages. As we were taking off in the rocket ship the bell on the dashboard started ringing, warning us that we were loosing altitude. The rocket crashed to the ground. With this crash we woke up and found that we had just fallen out of our seat in Sociology.
