doing very nicely and enjoys her present occupation
very much. Arthur said he had received a letter a
few days ago from a party with whom I was-well ac-
quainted with in Peshastin. I was eager to know
all about it, so he found the letter and gave it to
me to read. What! From our old pal, Ralph Springer.
The letter was of very much interest to me. Ralph
had worked several years on the farm at home to
earn enough to continue his education. To my great
surprise Ralph was now.teLching at Yale University
and teaching the very same subject he so much des-
pised in our class in high school. Why, the old
boy was and honest to goodness Physics professor.
He had, after completeing high school, began to
fight for the things he so much disliked and when
he started college he continued this individual
struggle. Before long he was deeply interested in
Physic's and from that time on he won out against
the things he had so much dispised during his young
er days. Art said Ralph taught in several
small schools and had been so successful that he
asked to teach at Yale. He has now been there

,f' ' Our airship landed on the 120 story derby Nslkh
building annex and we then went to the many street
levels by elevator.
The name Derby seemed to be Eamiliar to me so
I inquired at the information bureau oi the airship
company on the main street floor. I here found the
building was the prpelity of my old classmate,
Art Derby. The following day I called on Arthur '
and he told of his purchase of the Wrigly Chewing
Gum Company on January 1, 1940. He stated he had
consentrated on the fact that he might as well pur-
chase the entire Wrigly Gompany, thus reap profit
from his unbreakable habit of chewing gum. He had
inherited several million from relatives which aid-
ed him in this great undertaking, and had purchased
the present Derby building recently, as the office
space in the old location was not suitable
a business. Arthur invited me to stay and
home to dinner and spend the rest of the d
concented, and to my great surprise Arthur
his own machine, not his same old Oldsmobile with
its four wheel brakes but the same conpanies latest
model, the most modcnn machine on the market, the
dangerless nirship with e capacity of seven passenge
gers. O yes! Arthur told me all about his matri-
monail affairs. He married Miss Thelma Bergren an-
other of our school friends. They had had a wond-
erful happy married life and had raised a boy and a
girl. The boy has finished his college education
and is working in the office of his father, the
girl is e Sophmore in the State University. On my
arrival at Arthur's home Us drove the aeroplane in-
to the garage which was situated on the top of his
home. He had a beautiful place constructed of brick
and furnished with the best and most magnificicnt
furniture I have ever seen. Thelma was very much
startled at my arrival. We surely spent a most cn-
joyable evening. After,Dinner we listened to the
radio. I was speechless, when I heard the inagur-
ation address of the new president of the United
States and who could it be but another of my high,

things that we used to do in our school days, when I
we heard a rap on the door. Arthur immediately re- Y
sponded to the knock and who could it oc but they
former Miss Dena Spees and her husband. lt certain-
ly seemed like old times again,'to get together and ,
for five years. Art and I were just talking of the
hear how all our classmates had'spent the last g
twenty years. Dena said she was just returning i
fmom a worl tour by aeroplane, rail and water. l
She was told of the success Arthur had made, so ,
thought she would pay him a iisit while in the grectg
metropolis. Dena told of many wonderful experiences I
and sights that she had seen on her tour. But they :
are too numerous to mention. Her present home is inf
Australia where her husoand is presioent of a large '
bank and has extensive interests in several sheep I
ranches and commercial trade business. 1 3
