Class of Forty-Two Signed, sealed, published, and declared by the above departing Senior Class. CLASS PROPHECY “Tempus Fugit” and here we are in ’52. Let’s look around and see what’s happening to the Class of ’42 of Mount Vernon. What’s this! Jane Ballenger has opened a fifth avenue dress shop for her patriots from Mt. Vernon. On the Lorton Radio Station we now find " Beachie ” crooning love songs, and he’s even better than Gene Autry! Mildred Beahm’s long waited for soldier has returned from Pearl Harbor and they are happily married. After four unsuccessful engagements, Virginia Beazley has decided on being a ballet dancer for Nightingale ' s floor show. Betty Berrett has gone to Pearl Harbor to be with Carl. Well, well, Kathryn Bowling is found in charge of the Maternity Ward at Walter Reed Hospital. Poor Billie Burke is in the Lorton Reformatory for stealing other boys’ girl friends. Jimmie Coffey has long since joined the Air Corps and is now training schoolmates at Randolph Field. Virginia Compton finally married “Albert”, and with the trusty guitar is crooning him to sleep. Billy Cooke has become very famous as a mechanic in the airplane factory at Baltimore. A large plane has just swooped to the ground and gingerly stepping out of it we see Helen Davis authoress of " Love Versus Public Opinion.” We look in on a happy family of five out in Annandale where Dorothy Dawson is head of the household. (Poor Randolph never gets a word in edgewise). Edward Davis is “slick” looking in his new Marine uniform. (At any rate that’s what Grace thinks. ) Florence Deane is taking dictation from the fast talking Carter Glass. Miss Dent has decided to settle down with one of those “very Good looking” soldiers and is rearing three kids! While reparing the Washington Monument Clarence Deavers was blown from the building by a strong puff of wind. (Poor “Tim”, it may prove fatal.) John Dickerson has settled down in Groveton with Lillian Via. Nancye Dickinson is now calling figures for a big barn dance for Emory Di11ians engagement party. After two years of college “Dunky” has given it up and gone to North Carolina to be a tobacco aucctioneer. After winning the title of “Miss America” Ellen Durrer has signed a three year contract for the “Twenth Century Wolf.” When you lift your telephone to make your call and the voice says, " Number Please,” it might be our own Margaret Facchina. Who knows? Mr. Richard FitzgearId is now a great soap box orator campaigning for a gymnasium for Mt. Vernon High. Tom Flaherty has joined partnership with his brother in a new Washington News Paper. Even though Walter Frazier is working as an accountant, Mt. Vernon girls still drop in to get chewing gum from him! Mt. Vernon’s halls have been dull since Nadine Godfrey has left with her glittering personality to entertain the rest of the world. Norma Grimsley is now a traveling saleslady for Contour Foundation garments. Glen Hall has taken Morganthaus’ place as Secretary of Treasure. It didn’t take long for Pauline Hall to take that final plunge after she received her diploma. She is now the most popular hostess in Franconia. Doris Hodges, after having several unfortunate marriages, has settled down, the head of the “Old Maids Society in Chicago”. Jean Holmes has proved herself to be a success in the medical world as an X-Ray specialist. Kenneth Hoppe, that shy little man of yester-years, has now become the man-about-town, breakin many hearts but never mending any. Beverly Horman, who learned the ropes of army life way back in the good old days is now the youngest general in the U. S. Army. After taking many difficult rhymba lessons from Arthur Murry, Dot Javins has developed hip and knee. Owner of the largest ranch in Kansas, we find Betty Jumet hiring and firing cowboys. In EkiPon t ’ s Laboratories we see Joseph Kleckner , who has just discovered the formula to dissolve sit-down strikes. After shooting many “Japs” in our last war Charles Lookabaugh is well on his way to becoming a retired sailor. Peggy Lyles has become an eniment figure in society as a social secretary. In one of the largest hotels in the south we find Louise Minnick, as a dietician, trying to decide just what would be suitable for a honeymoon breakfast. Although the light of Ruth Monroe’s life has gone out several times, it has renewed itself and she is once again engaged to a wealthy football coach. Tabitha Morris is the Home Demonstration Agent of Fairfax County. Lorraine Mundy , that gal of many loves, believe it or not, has become a man-hater. Since Bill Murphy has gotten so fat slinging beer at Fort Belvoir’s P.X. he is now selling Phillip Morris Cigerattes. (He’s Johnnie the second.) Edith Nelson is noted for her strictness in her classes, she is teaching typing and shorthand at Mount Vernon. Mitchell Nelson, an executive officer in the school, is now superintendent of schools in Fairfax Coun ty. We look in on the Nelson home way out in Franconia, finding Ruth knitting and wishing that some of those boys would come by. Stephen O’neil has secured a wife, as well as fame and fortune as coach of the Washington Redskins. Calvin O’Rourke is the sole owner of a large duck farm in Lorton. He and his wife may be seen every morning counting downy little quack-quacks. Neville Padgett has taken Casey Jones’ place on the B. 0. Mary Parnell is in one of the largest colleges of Virginia teaching music to its students. Well, well, so Franconia has a chicken farm now --Charlotte Paul has seen to that. At Virginia Beach, we see Louis Peverill the ever-needed life guard. He answers female S.O.S. calls so often that he has nightmares of screaming mermaids. Shirley Platt has now reached her goal as an airline hostess on a bomer. Down in Hawaii we find Jean Roberts vacationing. And guess what, she has gone native even to the extent of wearing a grass skirt. Marion Romdahl has made Groveton a modern “Paris” w ' i th her new fashion shops. Carter Lee Smith has become famous since he has finished constructing a large bridge spaning the Hudson. Grace Smith is a great dietician at St. Mary’s. Lena Talbert is the most popular interior decorator in Washington, D. C. Thelma Wallis is happily controlling her duties as Mayor of Mt. Vernon. Jerry Wilson is chief of the draftsmen at the Glen L. Martin plant. Hector Wright is happily employed by Edsel Ford as Division Manager.

OFFICERS Jean Holmes--President Helen Jones --Advisor FOOTBALL TEAM Under the able leadership of Coach Bob Marshall and manager Mitchel Nelson, the 1941 football squad turned in one of the most admirable per¬ formances in the history of Mount Vernon. The team and the students showed moee spirit than any previous year. All the graduating seniors played bang up games all season. Francis ‘ ' Nip ' Yuell, brilliant quarter back and Rob Roberts another slashing back, shone superbly all season. We’ll be missing Clarance Deavers, James Coffey, Kenneth Hoppe, Gordon Beach, Bill Murphy and Carter Lee Smith on the line next season. Indeed these are great Losses. Next Year Coach Marshall predicts an even stronger team. Duell, Conners, Kenneth and Charles Blunt in the backfield. On the line great things are expected of George Miller, Leo Kinchloe, Eugene Thomas, Le Roy Gentry, Robert Leisner, and Bob Jensen, last but not least Mount Vernons All Northern Virginia left guard, Lawrence Baldwin. The team of 1941 wishes to extend its gratitude to Robert Francis Marshall, for his time, patience, and never failing effort to help our team on to victory.
