Who is the man on the ship decorated with medals, etc? (mostly etc.) Yes, it’s Admiral Dewey, our Dewey Dalton. Meet the mayor of ’35 if you please — Hallie Swaim — who in- stigated the famous Swaim bill requiring all ladies to shave their hair. What! the African jungles. Who is the great grave hero, the hunter? William Thomas’s record is hard to keep. What a charming little shop on Fifth Avenue. There all the New York fashionables go to get Madam S. Vaughan’s latest decrees on fashion. Who are those two friendly, prosperous looking gentle- men? Hurst Owen and Carson Dalton, the great electric magnates, owners of the Western Electric Co. A familiar sight! Louise Whitt’s Ford now rounds the bend, chock full of smiling children and bottles. (’Tis needless to explain this, for Louise is community nurse of Pulaski county, much loved by all little folks, although she is frequent at giving her doses of castor-oil.) May baskets! Chock full of fruit from every land and cli- mate. Merry, laughing, happy shool kiddies bringing gifts of joy to their beloved teacher, our own Blanche Whitaker. The light grows dimmer as Frances Mullins appears. It grows darker, darker — the light is out — the rest remains to be seen. Frances Mullins. [ 40 ]

In a picturesque little cottage on a dreamy lake lives a poet — a poet whom we all know. Who couldn’t help being in- spired to write something, living around such surroundings? Well, our poet and short story writer is Margaret Dyer. I can almost hear silvery strains of music floating from a Music Academy, where I see Mary Fitzhugh and Virginia Runion seated at a baby grand. They are famous musicians and composers. Now we see a ranch, a beautiful ranch in the western plains, tended by Judson Harris, where our “two-gun man” still holds his name, Judson being the best ranchman in the country. A desk, a typewriter, the old keys going click, click at top speed is kept in perpetual motion by Kathleen Hurst, stenog- rapher of Ford Company. But Kathleen isn’t satisfied, so climbs in to Secretary’s place. Two large Southern plantations, minus darkies picking- cotton, but filled with the latest improved methods and busily working machines. Two men strolling and giving advice, among the harvesters, both wearing large straw hats that shadow their smiling faces. ’Pon my word, it’s Walter Wyatt and Tom Jordan, our farmer boys. Ruth Jackson, although she is small, has a great work as historian. Artists! Who says we haven’t artists, for whether they’re drawing attention or drawing their breaths, David Kent and Inez Weeks are professionals along the drawing line. Smiling Margaret Kirkman, with market basket on arm, is seen purchasing meats, fruits and vegetables. Ho! she is not marketing for her mother; she has a home of her own. The scene is switched to St. Luke’s where we see a nurse — Lillian Lowman — who is superintendent. Pike Institute, the most noted school of the time, was es- tablished by Della and Lelia Pike, deserving sisters of ’26. With a smiling “Bon jour, mes enfants,” Kathryn Snapp takes her place before a smiling assembly of children. Oh! a kindergarten teacher, [ 39 ]
