SENIOR CLASS PROPI-IECY-1952
I think that is my old friend Barbara Ames
standing over by the rail. It's been fifteen
years since I have seen her, but she hasn't
changed much, Now she has turned around
and is coming in my direction.
"Hello, Barbara. Do you remember me?"
"Yes, of course. You're Marilyn Jerome.
While I was standing over by the rail, your
face kept running through my mind, but I
couldn't place you. Trhen all at once I remem-
bered who you were. I had heard that you
were touring Europe, but I never thought we
would see each other."
i'Yes, I'm headed back to the United States
now. You know piano playing gets sont of
tiresome without a vacation once in a while. By
the way, what were you doing in Europe?"
HI was in Paris completing an assignment
for Ed Farabaumgh, who is our Ambassador to
France. I am his private secretary now, and
due to illness he sent me to Paris to finish his
"Say, did you know thaft the captain of this
ship is Norman Taylor? He never could resist
the urge to be on a boatf'
"Yes, and this morning I was served break-
fast by Howard Brooks. It certainly is funny
how you meet your old friends."
t'Just before I left the States, I went to
visit Ed Larko and his wife, the former Jo-
Ann Tisch, Do you know that they have five
boys? I told Jo that all five of them would be
athletes if they followed in their mother's and
"Look! Here comes JoAnn Stevens. Must
be she's one of the nurses on this ship. She
would probably be able to tell us about some
more of our classmates."
"Hello, JoAnn. We have been talking about
our old classmates and thought maybe you
would like to sit down and visit with us for a
"I'd love to. It's wonderful seeing you girls
"JoAnn, do you know where Bev Stoll is
5"Yes, she married Gerald Berrier and they
live on a large farm. They have three little
girls. Henrieltta Kirkland is the nursemaid for
their daughters. You remember my cousin
Clara Stevens don't you? She is a stewardess
on Norm Larson's 'See-it-in-an-Hour' Airlines.
Golly! I didn't realize how late it was. I must
go on duty now. It's been nice talking with
you and I hope that I will see you both again
"Lt's getting rather chilly out here. Let's go
in, buy a newspaper, and have a cup of coffee."
?Here's the New York Times, Isn't Dave
Wilson the editor of that paper?"
"Yes, and there's an article by Pat Hayford
on the New York Symphony Orchestra. Well,
for heavens sake! Bruce Loomis is the con-
ductor and Robert Ollila is his solo clarinet
player. Those two boys were always good
friends in school."
"Let's see what they have new in movies in
the U. S. What's this! Sandy Simpson, the
'Sophie Tucker of 1967,' is appearing in per-
son at the RKO Theater. The cowboy hit of
the year is 'Tweedlin' Tweedler' with Hopalong
Connolly. I always knew that Bob would make
a good cowboy,"
"While I was in Paris I received a letter
from Betty Tietz. She and Gaylord Rodgers
are a famous roller skating team now. In it
was a clipping about the appointment of Ed
Clif-ton as President of the University of Penn-
sylvania. On his staff are Clara Lillie, Pro-
fessor of Chemistry, and Bob Carlson, head
'tHave you heard about the building Jim
Haines is designing? It's to be the largest
building in the world and is to be named in
honor of him."
"No, I hadn't. Did you know that Jim
Edgar and Taft Webb are ministers? Margaret
Holloway is soon to tour the United States tell-
ing of her experiences as a missionary in
"Last summer while visiting my cousin at
St. Lukes Hospital in Cleveland, I saw Joanne
Ollila Sunbury and Carole Smith who are
t'Howard told me this morning that B-ob
Bailes is running the largest chain grocery store
in the oounvtry and Katherine M'cMannes is his
private secretary, Kaye Archibald is the man-
ager of his Jefferson store. The dairy products
sold in all of Bob's stores come from the K 81 K
D'airy Farm which is operated by Bill Kemmer
and To-m Koskinenf'
HI saw that the London Daily ran a series
of features on the Rebovich Uranium Plant.
Don Benjamin is head personnel manager. Also
there was a plicture of Jim Leyman "the dar-
ingest daredevil driver in the world." His cars
are furnished by Allan Thomas' Pontialc Sales
and Service Garage."
"Oh! Look at the advertisement on the back
of tlhis menu! It says 'Smith and Overly, Hair-
dressers? Why that must be Lynn and Beverly.
What a coincidence! Let's have them fix our
hair and we can visit with them while they are
I can say only one thing in conclusion. That
class of 1952 certainly has reached the top rung
on the ladder of success. I'm sure such amaz-
ing progress will continue througfh the years to
