uu..uu1uni an CIM--lu I CLASS PROPI-IECY As I sat in the palatial oliices of the Metropolitan Opera Company where I am General Manager, it suddenly dawned on me to reflect over my past ten years and see how well I could remember my old schoolmates of Martensdale High School. As I called upon my memory to recall those happy remembrances, I began to wonder Where all those graduates of the Class of 1937 of Martensdale High School were. I immediately came out of my lethargy and proceeded to ransack my books and papers for an annual of 1937. As I was doing this, my secretary came in and stated that a man in the outer corridor was waiting to see me. Imagine my surprise to meet Gary Hall, the young swing maestro who leads a high class band. My amazement was doubled when I saw at his side a short charming lady whom I recognized as Alice Gavin. She had been singing on Broadway to the accompaniment of her husband's band for four years and had developed a very musical voice. We immediately began talking. I told them of my desire to learn the where- abouts of my old classmates. Gary pulled out of his pocket a "Colliers" magazine. On the corner of the cover was the name "Marge Weaver." This surely was my old classmate who had made her artistic talent profitable. In the magazine he showed me an article entitled thus, "Interplanetary Radio Possibilities" or "Mathematical Calculus Used to Determine the Radio Activity of Space." Under this title was written the name Oliver R. Frazier, A.B., B.S., M.A., Ph.D., eminent astronomical authority and mathematical wizard of Columbia Uni- versity. This indeed was a surprise as I remembered that in school days "Bud" was an athlete and not a student. Next Gary told me where he had seen that Oscar Finchwell, successor to Walter Winchell, was none other than Dale Melroy, the class comic, working under an assumed name. Bidding Alice and Gary goodbye, I picked up the morning sports page to see the results of the Drake Relays. Much to my surprise I found a large picture of Charles McLaughlin, smiling and holding a big trophy. Underneath was stated that Charles, the great Olympic star, had established a new record for the 100 yard dash, when he ran the century in nine seconds Hat. On the other side of the page, I saw a picture of a sensational baseball player. Above the photo was printed U35 or bust." Below was listed the number of games the "Great Frank Gallagher" hoped to win this season. He had won 30 games last year. On picking up a copy of the Martensdale Mirror, I discovered an article which astonished me. It stated that Leonard McKinney had recently been elected superin- tendent of the Martensdale Consolidated School. It also mentioned that Mr. McKinney wished to thank Harold Morris, a well-to-do farmer near Martensdale and president of the school board. for his support in helping "Dutch" obtain his position. It was here also that I read a story of Gaylard Siedel, the young missionary, who was doing splendid work in the South African jungles. He had waited patiently for his Freshman sweetheart to graduate and then had gone to Africa with her to teach the savages. Later in the day, I turned on my radio and heard this, "We will now have the latest news report prepared for you by 'Scoop Linnane'." Upon hearing Seoop's voice I knew immediately it was John Lfinnane, my once quiet classmate. As a late Hash he reported this: "John Walker, daredevil aviator, has just completed a record breaking flight around the world in 50 hours and 29 minutes. He was accompanied by his aviatrix wife who has been hailed as the second Amelia Earhart." To me this meant that she could be none other than Dorothy Crawford, our former school- mate. On the front page of the New York Tribune that evening appeared these large and glaring headlines: "IOWA HOUSEWIFE WINS NATIONAL JELLY MAKING CONTEST: AWARD OF MODERN HOME T0 BE PRESENTED THIS EVENING." Looking at her picture I suddenly realized that it was Caroline L'Estrange who had settled down near Oumming, Iowa. Having found all my schoolmates, I went to bed that night wishing them more of the good luck which had accompanied them so far in their lives.4B.
