It IS the ear 1963 I have recelved an lnvltatlon from Cynthla Eaton who was
our senlor c ass secretary and IS now a klnder arten teacher to attend a class
reunlon ln Newtown Cyn sald that she had troub e wlth some addresses llke Don
Drotar s He llves deep ln the heart of Texas and hls Job as a M C on a chlldren
radlo program keeps hlm busy Last week we heard that several of Jlm Beach's
chlldren starred on Don s show Andy Maye was hard to contact too for he has
Just left as the pl1Ot of the flrst flymg saucer to the moon On the way he passed an
alrplane on whlch Sally Lorenzo was stewardess headed for Florlda of course
Thls plane handles Isabelle I.,attln's newest contrlbutlon to the world an efflclent
DAN dy alr mall SCTVICC She employs Barbara Ray as dlrector of the messenger
glrls ln the company
When I went to mall the acceptance tO the lnvltatlon I found another letter ln
my mall box from Sally Tomllnson Presldent of the Old Malds' Unlon asklng lf
I am ellglble for membershlp I also recelved a current magazlne IH whlch there
15 a Charles Atlas advertlsement Could that be Blll Lees' PICISUYCQ It says here
that he IS a candldate fO1J'MT Amerlca" I also recelved my ISSUE of ' Punch" mag
azlne to whlch I have subscrlbed slnce Jeff Westcott became lts edltor ln Chlef
At the reunlon held at the home of Dlck Carmody now a detectlve wlth a good
many cases to hls credlt I found that I had arrlved early and plcked up a newspaper
to klll some tlme I also talked wlth Ann Keenan who was Wlth us for only a few
months and IS now a court stenographer Much to my surp lse there was ln the paper
a lon story concernln Chuck Botsford the world famous casanova
A so, I see that Bo ble Petersen IS the toast of Hollywood and the crltlcs belleve
that she wlll wln an Academy Award thls year On the same page I was overwhelmed
by the FCVICWS of Katy Cavanau h's debut at the La Tosca Opera house There IS
also an ad for the Rln llng Brot er s CITCUS The feature attractlon seems to be a
popular clown named ob Flsher
Some guests were arrlvlng Barbara McGurn IS the prlvate secretary to the
Governor and John Gerger IS an englneer ln the Cadlllac plant He works wlth
Bob Brown who lS a car customlzer for the same company
Dlck declded to turn on the televlslon set whlle waltlng for the remalnder of the
class to arrlve We were amazed to flnd that Vlrglnla Cole IS the chef on her own
program evldently the reason she was unable to attend the reunlon Dlrectly fol
lowlng her program was a stock car raclng show The wlnner of the feature event
turned out to be none other than George Hanlon A spot announcement revealed that
Sue Bawden had been chosen as Mlss Vogue' by dlstlngulshed authorltles lnclud
lng Edna Hendrlx a speclallzed home economlst An award has been granted to
Bob Kln man for belng the orlglnator of the now popular porcuplne ban s
A te egram arrlved from Rose Urbanovsky who IS unable to come ecause of
her dutles as the Presldent of the Unlted States Imaglne a glrl from the class of
1953 has become the flrst woman presldent
Van Gould was next to enter the house He brought Helen Carroll a shorthand
exhlbltlonlst who helps Van Wlth hls elaboratlons on Elnstelns' theorles Also
promlnent ln the sclentlflc world IS Jack Grady who has been showlng us the home
work machlne whlch he has patented Jack and Al Mlchel have collaborated and
turned out another machlne boastlrlg 'orlglnal excuses of all klnds wlth proper
slgnature' Al clalms that hls machlne IS guaranteed to work everytlme L.llllan
Sedor has another lnventlon whlch she has brought wlth her It's a hlstory book
Wlth no dates to memorlze Thls wlll surely be a popular book wlth the students
Holly Johnson as the wlnner of the Pulltzer PTIZC of the year adds a few notes
our llterary dlscusslon She has Just wrltten an artlcle on roller skatlng Last to
arrlve IS Bob McCarty late because of a last mlnute trlp to the model chlcken
farm whlch Evle Pendergast runs Bob a famous chlcken doctor IS trylng an
experlment to elemlnate the dlsease whlch 15 eraslng the chlcken from the country
The reunlon was a great success and even though everyone dldn't arrlve through
talkln wlth our old classmates we were able to see what a busy and lntelllgent class
we ha back at Hawley Hlgh ln 1952 and 1953

I saw hrm on the chandelrer It was gettlng very dark
Srngmg away for all to hear And lrstentng to a lark
He Started the glass a Ullkllllg We heard a rustle rn the trees
Whrle not grvrng us an rnklrng And also w1th rt went a sneeze
Of what he was or next was gotng to do We saw II was a ghost
Suddenly he leaped away Exghth Grade
Startrng the chandelrer to sway
I-Ie landed on the floor
And bolted out the door
And was lost to our srght rn the trees
Have you ever walked a path of gold? It was a path that wound so that you were unsure at every turn The
golden path began from your frrst step on your own road of l1fe and contrnued untrl you entered rnto heaven
I walked thrs path many years ago It IS a strange story that I ve never told before but feel that I must tell
you now so that you won t take the easy way You see I ve seen those who turned onto the wrong path
It all began when I graduated from college Iwas ready to lrve my own l1fe gurded as I felt rt would be
best Yes I began my walk rnto uncertarnty on the path of gold Iwalked qurckly at the begmnrng wrth the
eagerness and lrmrtless energy of youth After a few years when I began to trre I wanted to stop to turn
around but curroslty and a strange urge led me on to the end
One day when I came to my frrst crossroad I saw two srgnposts On the left II sard the easrest way
the r1ght the rrght way Whrch path should Itake'P I hesttated a moment then knew what the stgns meant
Yes ltook the path to the rrght The path was steep and very hard to clrmb but I found happrness happrness
beyond my farthest dreams
Further on I found many other srgnposts There were easy p y fast advrce amusement and fun
fast spendrng and depressron ahead The srgnpost that I felt hardest to turn away from was one whrch
threatened go back ll w1ll be easrer Those srgns bothered me but I knew that I must contrnue on the
r1ght way After a whrle I notrced a drm lrght years away It grew brrghter as I contrnued promrstng
Once I came upon a rarnbow and thought of clrmbrng rt to frnd the post of gold at the end but realtzed
that thrs rarnbow was made up of untrue colors I knew then that the rambow merely led to unhapprness and
Toward the end of the path of gold I could see a golden gate A man came to the gate whlch swung
open and he walked through but when the next man came upon the gate ll rernarned closed desprte hrs
constant knockrng After a few mrnutes some force threw htm away and back to the begrnntng of the
rrght way showmg that he must follow the rrght way rn order to go through the golden gate As I
approached the gate ll flew open lettrng me 1ns1de There I found a golden starrway which I began to
clrmb It grew steeper and narrower at every step At the top I turned and looked back Much to my
surprrse I could see back to the begrnnrng of the path of gold also I dtscovered that the wrong paths
were stony and terrrbly wrndmg after therr glorrous begrnnrng It was easy to see that the r1ght way
was the easrest and truest Turnrng around and walkmg on I came rnto a true paradxse whrch I shan t
try to descrrbe Yes I had entered heaven
When you hcgrn your road of lrfe wrll you walk the path of gold the rrght way?

I don t know what evrl rnfluence was workrng on me when
I took my skates out of the attrc and brushed off the cob
webs The skates were a fascrnatrng shade of pale green
wrth a touch of brown here and there You mrght wrth a
lrttle rmagrnatron notrce the orrgrnal whrte polrsh but rt
would be drffrcult
When I frnally reached the rce I felt queasy rn the
stomach The srght of all that rce and all the lousy
skaters cheered me though so I wouldn t be alone rn m
plrght and would have plenty of room to fall down rn
Once on the rce my knees buckled my skates turned
and I landed on my seat owl Prckrng myself up I start
ed out agarn Thrs trme I took a step brave me and
fell agarn After repeatrng the process trme and agarn
I was dragged off the rce after whrch I crawled home and
went up to the attrc where my pale green skates were
hung up to collect cobwebs for another year
Mother Nature crred a soft sweet call
And woke her sleeprrrg daughter Earth
Vlake up she called and open your eyes
For sprrng rs here and you must rrsel
And Earth awoke and opened her eyes
And the moment she drd there was blue rn the skres
The arr grew warm and the grass turned green
And trny leaves on the trees were seen
She bathed herself rn Aprrl Showers
And dressed herself rn beautrful flowers
Tulrps and Vrolets and Daffodrls brrght
And round her shoulders the warmth of sunlrght
And brrds appeared and started to srng
And happrness bloomed rn everythrng
And people walked wrth a sprrng rn therr step
And a warm good feelrng for all they met
A AM IN 6 Seventh Grade
lf I were asked what I consrdered the most admrrable qualrty rn a person Iwould say that a sense of humor
ranks second to none for a sense of humor can allevrate almost any srtuatron however dramatrc
The rncrdent I am about to relate concerns a person wrth the most remarkable sense of humor I have ever
encountered He had the capacrty for seerng the funny srde of any srtuatron and rf a Joke were drrected
agarnst hrm he laughed longer and louder than anyone else
I do not remember when I frrst met Frazer Scott All I recall rs that I grew up wrth a sense of berng aware
of hrs company a companronshrp whrch I valued more and more as the years went by Berng a frrend of
the famrly Scotty spent many of hrs vacatrons and much of hrs spare trme wrth us The trme at whrch thrs
rncrdent occured was the year of I942 a year rn whrch the Battle of Brrtarn was gorng most unfavorably
and a year rn whrch the nrghtly bombrng rards over London had become habrtual In order to escape these
nrghtly bombrng rards my father purchased a trarler and parked rt some frfty mrles out of London rn the
depths of the countrysrde and every nrght we drove out to rt and spent the nrght there
One weekend towards the end of March of 42 we rnvrted Mr Scott to spend hrs trme rn our company rn
the somewhat cramped surroundrngs of our trarler As rt turned out Mr Scott was to have a greater lrberty
of movement than we had antrcrpated At thrs pornt I thrnk rt rs approprrate to say somethrng of Mr
Scott s physrcal proportrons whrch were generous to say the least To be more accurate Scotty rn addrton
to berng the most humorous man I ever knew was also the fattest rn fact hrs drmensrons far exceeded
the rmagrnatron of anyone who had not seen hrm
From my descrrptron you may have gathered the rmpressron that Frazer Scott was a mass of superlatrves
rolled rnto one fat lump but I must hasten to add that thrs was totally untrue he was a perfectly normal
man rn all repects except the two I have mentroned
The Journey out to the trarler that Frrday evenrng passed uneventfully enough Mr Scottwas seated rn
hrs accoustomed posrtron rn the center of the back seat of the car wrth my srster and I seated on erther
srde of hrm I sard hrs accoustomed posrtron because my father always took thrs precautron rn order to keep
the werght evenly drstrrbuted over the four wheels
It was wrth lrght hearts that we frnally arrrved at the trarler The prospect of a quret and comfortable
weekend spent rrr a warm snug trarler warmed us rnsrde As rs often the case a srtuatron descends upon one
suddenly wrth nothrng to herald rts approach Suddenly the general cause of events rs shattered the rrver
of lrfe ceases to flow rn rts prescrrbed cause an obstacle presents rtself and causes a crrsrs Such was the
srtuatron that presented rtself that fateful Frrday evenrng
The crrtrcal moment came when we trred to get Scotty rnto the trarler The door rt appeared was
too small to perform the task of admrttrng that srngular gentleman If he could not enter rn the
orthodox fashron perhaps he could get rn srdeways so we manoeuvered Scotty rnto a srdeway posrtron a
and pushed wrth all our force but the obstrnate door defeated all our attempts to admrt hrm After a
consrderable physrcal buffetrng and puffrng lrke a tractron engrne Scotty lowered hrs battered bulk onto a
tree stump and resrgned hrmself to spendrng hrs weekend rn the somewhat doubtful atmosphere outsrde the
Durrng our acquarntance wrth Scotty we had become famrlrar wrth the drffrcultres caused by hrs remark
able physrque but even we had farled to provrde for a contrngency such as thrs Needless to say durrng
thrs eprsode I had been rollrng on the ground physrcally overcome wrth mrrth but one would have thought
that even a sence of humor as rndomrtable as Scott s would have farled to apprecrate the comedy of the
srtuatron but when I had recovered I found hrm laughrng as hard as the rest of us Havrng taken up our
respectrve statrons Scotty on the outsrde and the rest of us on the rnsrde of the trarler we settled down
to the evenrng meal and frnally to bed On the followrng mornrng we looked out of the wrndow and
found that Scotty s prevrously battered bulk had undergone the even more severe punrshment of a wet
nrght and needless to say hrs keen sense of humor had been serrously blunted by the experrence
It was a long trme before Frazer Scott was allowed to forget the Westcott trarlerrng eprsode
