let me introduce to you all the members of our group. Let me assure you that they are the
world's most famous actors." "Ah, allow me to begin here with our manager, Mr. Herman
Ballmer. There is none other half as good. Next is the widely known lion-tamer who fears
nothing, Mr. Raymond Staub. arid then, last but not least is our famous midget aerialist, Miss
Marguerite Conn." "l am certainthat we are glad to make your acquaintance but, there is one

Everyone was having a great time getting acquainted when there was heard a sudden knock-
ing at the door. Opening it, they saw two frightened women. Every one was astonished at the
stqry the women fMrs. Irene Johnson Hooverand Miss Marceil Shaneyfeltl told. They related
that they were enjoying a vacation trip until their chauffeur stole their car, and all of their
possessions and then disappeared into the hills.
Everything was a tumult of excitement while the people were making preparations to go
into town after the sheriff and the thief. However. before they reached the little town, strange
things were happening there. In the first place, several people had seen a big car driving around
the town, and. of course, that was something new for them. Later. the car had driven up to
the only gas station for a few minor repairs and some gas. Then 'the driver attempted to get
away without paying. However, the sheriff, Arthur'Smith. a very skillful man with a gun, was
too quick for the thief, and made his escape impossible.

mountain home. there were many people there just for curiosity. The room suddenly
became very quiet as the judge, a very heavy set man walked slowly into the room. Following
him came the Clerk of Courts. the lawyer. and the accused man. The trial was rather lengthy
for the old judge, Honorable James Aukerman. had every little incident discussed in detail.
whether important or not, by the lawyer O. W. Hawes, Esq. The trial had not proceeded far
until the group was astonished to discover that the judge. theilawyer and the clerk. Miss Hatch-
er, were all their old school teachers. Because of this discovery, everyone was so excited that the
prisoner escaped and was unnoticed. One by one the mountaineers left for their homes and fin-
ally only the "one time" seniors and their dear teachers were left alone enjoying their reminis-
of 1936 together under one roof forty years later.
