Owing to iMyrtle Myers’ mathematical ability, she will make one of the greatest architects of the Twentieth Century. Any- one as ambitious and courageous as Myrtle could not be satis- fied with anything but a dazzling career. The future holds for Dorothy Spence a place as member of the faculty of Columbia University. She is, of course, a French teacher. We would expect nothing less of a student as am- bitious as Dorothy. Success will surely crown her efforts. For Selma Quesenberry the future holds a responsible posi- tion as stenographer for the Ford Motor Company. Owing to Audrey Sasher’s ability to learn French, she will become French governess for a millionaire’s children in New York. For Virginia Snider I foretell a great musical career. Due to her wonderful talent and untiring efforts she will become President of the International Music Club which meets in Vienna annually. For Virginia Roberts the future holds a place as petite dan- cing teacher of folk dances in a kindergarten school in New York City. For Rhoda Neel Sheppard the future holds a picturesque little bungalow in Hollywood, California, where she is famous as a movie actress; even we in Pulaski will see her on the screen. Some of us will even visit her in Hollywood. After completion of a course in nursing at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I see Louise Strauss doing public welfare nursing in the slums of New York City. Because of her charitable dis- position she has won the title of a second Florence Nightingale. For Louise Hurst I foretell a highly successful musical career. She will receive a degree from Randolph- Macon College but she is selfish and isn’t satisfied with one degree. She will get a degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. She will be a great and highly accomplished musician. For Anna Smith, who has talents differing from the rest of us, I foretell glorious success for her as a great prima donna in New York. Her name will ring throughout America and will win fame well deserved. For James Cummings the future holds a place as a social and welfare worker in the slums of Chicago where she devotes her 35

CLASS PROPHECY S LL CLASSES that go out from Pulaski High School have a prophet of some kind. Owing to the fact that I am always prophesying about and for the Seniors, I suppose they thought 1 was the best they could do. Permit me to lift the veil and bring before you what the future holds for the Senior Class of 1925. Great things, of course, are in store for a class so gifted and studious and so far reaching in intellectual attainments — a class that dreams and plans and looks forward to the day when they can accomplish something worth while, when it can be said that the world has been made a better place to live in by their having li ed in it. First allow me to foretell the future of our illustrious Presi- dent, Mildred Carson. She will begin teaching after the com- pletion of a college course but her perseverance in the classroom and her conscientious efforts will soon win for her the superin- tendency. For the future of Margaret Brewer, I see one of the greatest lawyers the country has ever known. By her great skill and the soundness of a logical mind she has won this distinction and is permitted to argue before the Supreme Court of the Ihiited States — a privilege granted to few. For Mabel Coalson, I see her the mistress of a pretty little bungalow with roses twined around the back door. Domestic duties have not changed the buoyant happy disposition of her girlhood days. She is also one of the foremost charity and wel- fare workers in the city where she resides. For Marie Hardy I see an exceptionally brilliant career. She has ceased to be the quiet staid “grandma” of her high school days; she puts her thoughts into action, she is a famous liteiary woman as well as a social reformer; she is also Congresswoman from the Ninth District and none of us will be surprised when we find that the Hardy Reform Bill will pass Congress by an o ' er- whelming majority. To Lena Gray, who is steadfast, trustworthy and ambitious, success is sure to come. There are many things she could do but she prefers school teaching to anything else, but she doesn’t punish her pupils severely as you might think she would be- cause she hasn’t forgotten her own mischievous school days. 34

time to the poor and neglected of the city. Her cards will read Dr. J. V. Cummings, General Practitioner. For Elizabeth Conner, who has the mind of genius and who never knew what it was to make less than ninety-nine on French, there are of course great things in store for her. After completing a French course in gay Paree she will accept the position as French teacher at the Uni ersity of Ne ada. I see Ethel Lewey, who has a sunny, comical disposition, as the foremost comedienne of the day. She can play before New York’s largest audience but she prefers to play in the audi- toriums of welfare hospitals in large cities for the amusement of the poor and crippled children who cannot afford the price of public amusement. For Mary Burnett, who is so studious and so conscientious and broad minded, I foretell a great career as religious educator from the State of drginia. She travels all over the continent giving lectures on religious education. For Robert Carlyle Bunts I foretell a great career as a plastic surgeon. I can see him now in a handsome car rushing down the city streets, but the reason he is exceeding the speed limit is because he has been called in a hurry to perform a very serious as well as a skillful operation. He will make a name for himself as one of America’s foremost surgeons. For Lenis Hart I foretell a career as Professor of Agriculture at Cornell University. For Edgar Carico the future holds success which Edgar will stri e diligently to achieve. He will own a large printing office and will carry on the printing business with marked success. Last, but not least, comes Theodore Hall, the Demosthenes of the Twentieth Century. He will make a speedy entrance into Congress and after one of his lengthy and forceful argu- ments any bill he offers will pass Congress by an overwhelming majority. Daisy Lou Matheney, ’25. 36
