M V V. ...rw THE TECHITE 1927 -un aw- Knowing Hazel Boyce's position as society editor of the New York Times would enable her to give us some interesting information about those of our class, we journeyed to that great metropolis. Most people found it very difficult to approach this great woman but evidently she had not forgotten the time we told her, during an English test, that Shakespeare was born in 1564, so we received from her the following valuable informa- tion: Ruth Miles and Virginia Foster are noted social climbers, and rivals for the hand of the Prince of Wales. Hazel said she was present at the wedding of Glenda Hough, who took for better or worse, another of our Tech alumni. Strange to relate the happy couple did not go to Niagara on their honeymoon. Jimmy Bradley is a social lion nowadays, and Spencer Hewins, his constant companion, has an idea that he must then be a social tiger. Kenneth Frisbie and Harry Burgess after reading a few Sherlock Holmes' books, started a private detective agency. Their success was prob- ably due to their motto, "We would walk a mile to catch a criminal." We were shocked, however, to hear that John Lathrop and Bruce Fowler are millionaires because they took up that brutal sport of prize-fighting. Ac- cording to Hazel, Gregg McClurg and John Griffith are quite high up at present. They are doing well as aviators. Katherine Lamon and Gwendo- lyn Sarget have just returned from a missionary trip to the Fiji Islands. It is rumored that Gwendolyn considers the natives' intelligence on a par with that of the rookies at Tech. Franklin Fairfax and Bertrand Richter by means of their bright colored locks, have been chosen to represent and advertise Machand's Golden Hair Wash. Franklin is supposed to repre- sent the first stage and Bertrand Richter the second. Carl Klatt and Jason Mathews just went bankrupt trying to sell garters in a college town. Mary Bibb is now working in a Woolworth's Ten Cent Store at the baby depart- ment selling waterproof chest protectors for infants. Joseph Sesso and Rob- ert Weintraub are now famous sea-food vendors. Their fish are so fresh that they insult every lady that comes into the store. We were forced to leave Miss Boyce at this point, so having acquired an appetite by this time we betook ourselves to the Ritz-Carlton for a slight repast. Standing ready to conduct us to our table was Alfred Gross, the head waiter, who in his twenty years of experience in that institution had been able to find out quite a bit about those in whom we were interested. He imparted this knowledge: William Oehman's jazz orchestra consisting of James Duvall, William Leyking and Herman Morris is enhancing the enjoyment of Mrs. Ritz's home cooked meals with their melodious strains. He mentioned that Albert Georgens and William McHenry are bringing knowledge quickly to the ignorant by means of a correspondence school they are running. Ruth Bitting the well-known authoress, has just finished another serial for the Snappy Story Magazine. Guerry Smith grew a set of whiskers and is now doing extremely well in the cough drop business. We were informed too that Martin Derrick tells more untruths than anyone else. By expect- ing just the opposite of what Marty tells them, the people of the country usually come out all right. Marty is the new weather man. Faithe Howell and Constance Myers went out to Texas, and following the general prece- dent of the women of that State, have started running for Governor Page IIO
