Page Fourteen T I-I E M E N A N CLASS PROPHECY Kimberly, Idaho. May 25th, 1938. Miss Christine Stone, Shanghai, Republic of China. Uear Christine: You are anxious to hear about the reunion of your class, we know, so we, as a commit- tee, are writing to you at our first opportun- ity to tell you of it. It was such an enjoy- able event, and it only lacked your presence to make it complete, as everyone of the old class but yourself was able to be there. We were all so sorry that your missionary duties kept you from being present. Everyone seemed quite different from the boys and girls of twenty years ago, but after all, when one thinks it over we are only ma- ture in the old ways, instead of radically changed, and each seems to have followed pretty closely the path which lay ahead of him on that commencement night so long ago. All except Jay Scott. My dear, you will be surprised when we tell you of him. He is dancing master and an interpreter of the classical dance. Think of it! And we all thought Jay was headed for the ministry. He entertained us with a few of his biggest 'thits," during the evening. .Ray VVagoner, 1, you know he is a great chautauqua orator nowj spoke in a most silver tongued style of the good old days, which made us all Weep. He certainly has the power to reach right down to the heart of the audience. He would make an extremely successful evangelist, and is thinking seriously of taking up that work. You remember how jolly Clarabelle Sev- erance always was, don't you? Well, she hasn't changed a bit in that respect, but her size, my dear ,is most astonishing. Why, she says she is unusually thin just now- and she weighs two hundred fifty pounds at least. She taught school for several years- until she got so large that she couldn't get a position-and then settled down to a com- fortable maidenhood. She was engaged to be married the year after we graduated, but her fiance disappeared mysteriously and hasn't been seen since. Marie Turner Jones could only stay with us one day as she had left the children at home in Montana in charge of the eldest, a girl of fifteen years, and she felt that she just must return as soon as possible. How- ever, yve were mighty pleased to have her for that long. Family cares have told on Marie and she is graying awfully fast. She might be mistaken for a woman of fifty-five at least, and she isn't even forty yet. Helen has certainly distinguished herself since we parted last. She married in haste fifteen years ago-a foreigner of some sort- but she has fully repented, secured a. divorce and now wears her maiden name of Alberts- meyer. At present she is holding a very re- sponsible position as private secretary to the president of Liberia, and came all that way to be with us. She has her own private aeroplane which she drove over by herself. She absolutely will not have a chauffeur for she says she wont trust any man with her life again. Her troubles have soured her on life, but she did her best to be merry with the rest of us, during her stay here. Evera Morgan owns a forty acre farm near here. He has a large family which he is kept busy trying to support. His contri- bution to our banquet was a bushel of the finest apples, which he had grown on his farm. He took us out on a hay rack ride to see his place. it is well improved and kept up nicely. Evera is regarded by the people here as a very successful farmer. General Ernest Emerson regaled us with some of his tales of the great war. He told only the nicer ones of' course, and made a very interesting evening of it. He wore his uniform with medals for gallant conduct in action plastered all over the front of it. He lives in Washiiigtcin, D. C., but he has a home in his beloved Colorado mountains, Where he and his little French wife spend their summers. Senator A. D. Claiborn-formerly Jack our class president-took charge of the meet- ing. But things were conducted in Parlia- mentary style. Uur old method of everyone talking at once displeases him very much now. The Senator has never married as he could never find a girl who just suited all of his ideas. He says he is sure his mate ex- ists somewhere and he wants to be perfectly free when he finds her. Meral LaCourse is still teaching school, and is a highly specialized instructor of Physical Education in one of Chicago 's big schools. She told us in a little talk that she felt she owed her start in life 's work to Miss Gourley's efforts the year she came to school here. She is now a fine looking woman and
