It is interesting to note in the society column of the Southwest Times that Mabel Ratcliffe .... 1 believe she was our class beauty . . . . has just announced her engagement to be married. Won’t she make a lovely housewife? Another interesting item in The Times was the recent marriage of Elizabeth Haislip to an enterprising young farmer. She has always had the Class’s best wishes. It was just yesterday that I read a worthy article along the line of foreign languages, and to my surprise I found the author to be Miss Eleanor Frye, none other than our French prodigy. We had one of the largest classes to ever graduate from Pulaski Hi, but I remember every one in it. Julian, erstwhile “Greasy” Groseclose, is manager of the Wal- dorf-Astoria in New York, with Robert Eastman as his house de- tective. Robert certainly “detects” too. Have you ever traveled on the Browder Steamship Line? I’ll bet you don’t know who is in charge. Garnett and Dewey Browder! Their private secretary is Beth Glenn and I hear she is to be married next month to a high school sweetheart. Donald Field’s latest book, “The Ostrich’s Last Feather,” is meeting with much favor here and abroad. Poiret, at Paris, has for his head designer, Violet Kersey. She has amazing taste in designing dresses, hats, and accessories. Have you seen her lately? She has the most beautiful eyes. Oh, dear! There goes the radio, and .... what do I hear . . . . why .... it is ... . yes, it is a lecture on the disadvan- tages of companionate marriage, by Virginia Wood! She is broad- casting from Martinsburg, W. Va., Station G. E. O. That is just like Virginia; a real social worker. Miller Bushong has recently opened an airplane factory intro- ducing a new type airplane, “Virginia Swisher.” I just knew he would be a success. Lucille Richardson inherited a vast fortune some years ago and is now traveling from place to place in the Old World. I met her in Europe last year while visiting relatives. Naomi Hurst is Dean of Women at the University of Pulaski. She has held that post for many years and will hold it many more. 68

GV ffelL Gltum, " PPen Qj ears !jPj f er graduation Kom ( ' j’t ' iqli ofchooi .G ) haul the CpJnlereshng P eople of the Glass of ' 2 g 1 )ear Old Chum : It’s been a long time since we have written, hasn’t it. ' Longer still since we have been together. Oh, for[the good old times we had at Pulaski Hi! Remember? Wouldn’t you like to be back there teasing the teachers, chewing gum, and playing all the other pranks? Just think, it has been ten years exactly! Have you kept in touch with all the girls and boys who graduated in ’2d? Most of them are widely known. Remember Harold Beamer, “the boy with the intellect? He is a famous surgeon now — a brain specialist. And Jean Hunt? Why, she now adorns the stage, holding thousands spellbound by her graceful, intricate steps. Earle Crabtree achieved her ambition and is now athletic di- rector of Sargent College. Margaret Matheney has opened a school of expression in Cali- fornia. This promotes voice culture for the talking movies, you know. Great old girl, Margaret. Of course you remember Betsy Muire, who was so tiny we all called her “It.” She recently married an English baron and resides in state at his spacious estate, where she is beloved by the whole countryside. Beautiful Ann Mullins hashes on the silver sheet. The movies seem to be the work she is best fitted for. Tall, willowy, — you know her type. Did you see Palmer Kinser’s blue ribbon picture at the Art Gallery last month? It was entitled “Diane,” and was of such com- plete beauty that the national prize was given it. His brother Garnett has a seat in Congress and he is going to run for President next election. Quite a family, isn’t it? Freeda Turpin was a worker and still is. She is principal of the Hiwassee High School and all her pupils love her. Sadie Brinkley owns a chewing gum factory in Chicago. She demonstrated her wares in P. H. S., if my memory is good. Nell Bowles is an essayist of note, because she has nearly ousted George Bernard Shaw from his former place. (.7

Saw Mozelle Dalton the other day. She’s just as cute as ever. “Mo” teaches piano at Peabody Conservatory, and on her vacations sojourns at her “Bee” farm. I am reminded of the play we had called “The Poor Nut.” Mozelle was the leading lady and Harold Beamer the hero. They were assisted by an able cast. I’ll always remember the thrill I had when the play really started, and at the Dalton Theatre! Wasn’t that great? Miss Rosenblatt and “Doc” Harman certainly did work hard. Mildred Coleman operates a beauty parlor in New York. Her “shoppe” is very popular with the idle rich because she specializes in dieting and face lifting. A charming society butterfly is Emily Bushong. She married a banker in New Market, Ya., and is in great demand there. I ' m sure you recall what a sweet disposition Hazel Cole had. Well, she still has it, and is a missionary in Kenfal. Recently she arrived for a lecture tour of the United States. Perry Robertson is head chemist at the Allisonia dirigible factory. He has just perfected a system of non-inflatable oxygen. Do you remember the flying tackles Marzell Schrader used to make on the football held? “Ole Lady” is still on the job as he is coach at Harvard. Charlotte Board is sales lady for the Pontiac concern. She makes a good one, especially when it comes to demonstrating their products, but then, that is only natural. Margaret Thomas is in the business world just as she had always planned. She is private secretary to a Wall Street king. Sam Haislip is the U. S. Ambassador to Bolivia. As he was always diplomatic, he must be a great help to Uncle Samuel. “Shorty” Draper has placed his feet carefully in the prints of his lather and is now a doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Quite a job! Berlie Kegley was admitted to the bar two years ago and his work was so brilliant that he is now Commonwealth’s attorney. Winifred Duncan is superintendent of nurses at Mayo Brothers. 1 am so glad she attained what she worked hard for. 69
