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
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-
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
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
