. mt- THE TECHITE 1927 .ws .':f:9:.c:L-:f.:c:c1:.e:c:g:rc:.1:t,:c:ri:f.c:i::f1:i:c, aw- manufacturer. Recently, the Judge said, that by brilliant oratory John Keta, the noted lawyer, had in his latest case not only convinced the jury that the prisoner was not guilty but had convinced the prisoner himself. A voice interrupted our talk, and turning we saw Blake Espey, who is now a manufacturer of axle grease for channel swimmers. Blake said he had just outfitted with a complete covering Grace Randall, the great channel swimmer, who is making her hundred and eighty-ninth attempt to swim the Catalina Channel. He informed us also that Alice Mayo got this year's Carnegie Medal for Bravery in saving lives. She saved two people from drowning. She caught them in the act of jumping off of the dock and talked them out of it. After leaving the party, we watched a band coming down the street. Well to the front we noticed J ullien Win- nemore playing a musical drum solo. Near him marched Willard Peck, putting in a few touches now and then with his trumpet. Which reminds us that Margaret Tolson is so famous now as a pianist that Paderewski gave up in disgust and is trying to earn a living another way. She always plays on a Shurman piano built by Phillip Shurman, another of our class of '27, who was inspired to build better pianos from listening to those at Tech for four years. We were getting so used to stopping and starting that we hardly realized it when we stopped again to admire the sign ad- vertising Robert Burton's fresh water taffy. We entered to try some. After the first bite we decided that the name was very appropriate. We started to leave, but were forced to stand aside while three important personages came in. They, we discovered, were Florence Leighty, the well- known president of the Society for the Suppression of Vice, with her two assistants Viletta Wilmoth in charge of the department to prevent the wearing of loud colors, and Mildred Barnes, in charge of the depart- ment for tobaccoless cigarettes. Florence, it seemed, knew quite a bit about what had happened to our former fellow-students, so she told us a little. Isabella Young has found her life's work. She is manager of the Lydia Pinkham Medicine Co. Virginia Allen is secretary to Mr. Wrigley and needless to say she certainly advertises his products. Judy Walton decided that she had a grudge against the world, so in an attempt to make everyone miserable she now superintends the making of Castor Oil. Biarny Smith and his inseparable companion, Buck Gaskins, are risking their lives every day in pursuit of their profession. They are basketball ref- erees at local high school games. The next thing we learned from her was that Frank Stutz and Dick Essex decided to put their names to some advantage, so they are salesmen now for those motor cars which bear their name. Edith Adams, it seems, and her melodramatic acting caught Charlie Chaplin's eye, and now she is his leading lady. Anita Anderson and Bertha Babinski are fiery orators touring the country lecturing on The Advantages of a. Small Assembly Hall. Olga Sonnenberg and Julia Durand are spending their Friday afternoons at the ball park admiring the classical nose of Goose Goslin. Charlie Achstetter and Milton Boyer are helping out the city of Washington and likewise the sausage manu- facturers by catching all the stray dogs. So ardent is their zeal that Mrs. Coolidge found her white collie in the dog-catcher's cart. Page 109
