QSealJ Witnesses: SALLY SADSACK TIMOTHY TICKLEBRITCHES CEDRIC CEMETERY The 1950 Zionoiz The 1950 Ziunoiz C LAASS P RO P H ECY The members of the Senior Class of 1950 have been invited to attend the llollywood premiere of BERT WALL'S last picture. She has made enough to retire. FRANCES GRINESTAFF, just back from Paris, France, will start from New York by plane. At a stop in Toledo, Ohio, BETTY KLOPFENSTEIN boards the plane. llere they also learn that the pilot of the plane is one of our class, BOB Fl lLTE. Next stop is the airport at Decatur, 11ow a suburb of Mt. Zion. TED Mc- GEEHON, in his taxi, takes us i11 town to pick up more of the class. MARIE WARNER is now Mrs. M., of course. We pick up MARY OVERLIN and PIIYLLIS RICHEY, who are ofiice workers at the Tiny Paper Box Company, owned by JACK IIECTOR. Mt. Zion has really changed. It has a large police force with the great Chief of Police, AL SEITZ. Farm owners, BUD TIPSWORD, JOHN MCRAE, and DORIS KENNEY also met us there. Great farmers, with Doris 011 top, of course. Oh! here comes DALE MYERS. He says he is also a farmer. He has about te11 acres. On the way to the train we see a large sign which reads: GOSN ELL, MEN Y, and GORDON Service Station. With their three partners, of course. While getting tickets at the station we suddenly realize that the girl selling them is MARGARET IHNES. As we board the train LEE WENDELL, the porter, takes our suitcases. lle tells us that the engineer is WAYNE UNDERWOOD. GLORIA AMES is taking her oldest daughter with her but she is leaving the twins at home. LOVETIA SHETLER, the worldls fastest typist, is also taking her two children. St. Louis is the next stop. At the ball game MAMIE BRYANT sells us the tickets and MARVIN MCLEAN is on hand to take them. Today tl1e Killers are playing with the first girl player. Hey, look, it 's ANN GOODWIN pitch- ing. "Peanuts! Popcorn! Candy!" yells RONALD SCHUMAN. CATllERlNE BATEMAN, who is now a nurse, tells us that she is here to treat all spectators who are hit by wild pitches. Next we stop in Tucson, Arizona, at the HS" RANCH, which is owned by NORMA IIECTOR. A studio from Hollywood was making a motion picture, with Texas JIM BRYANT. The scropt girl was LYNNIE YORK. The hair stylist for the picture was also from our class, JEANETTE EKISS. When we asked who owned the adjoining ranch Norma said, ALINE HECTOR, of course. EDWARD MCKEAN wanted to get a tooth pulled so some of the fellows went with him to the dentist and receptionist ALICE VVARNER showed them around. Professors DAN HOGAN and BILL RUBLE, of agriculture and mathe- matics, respectively, met us at the theatre. GENE MCLEAN, just home from the Navy and MARY WARNER, who works in an office just across the street from the theatre, also met us there. It has been lots of fun to have the Senior Class of 1950 together again, and we hope we can do it again in the near future. 19 I"ir.wI rmr, lrft fo ll!jllffii0l'2lll'l Nihiser, Lois Langley, Nzxney Phipps, Janis Stocks, Ruth Ilznrris, Dorothy Auten, Marion VViekline.
