club. There we see Nancy Barnwell, Evelyn Tucker, Bertha Lee Spraker, Margaret Rauhof, Geraldine and Judith Keister, and Pearl Baugh enter- taining New York society by dancing in a sprightly manner. We are having a grand time, but as we are rushed for time we leave at midnight on the good ship “Rose Petals” bound for Paris. Seven days later we sight land. We are met by Regina Bowles and Anna Snider, who own a very large and exclusive hotel. This is a place for the very cream of society, and imagine how well Anna and ’Gina fit in! Here we find Virginia White and Irene Rupe as private secretaries to these two distinguished ladies. The next day we visit the famous museums and newspaper offices and see Alice Breedlove and Dorothy Neighbours as newspaper reporters. Dot looks very dignified with her long hair and large horn-rimmed specs. Alice knows all about the latest accidents, the inventions, the society scandals, and everything from Watson’s latest sale on down. She is a regular hand for information. We visit the offices of Dwight Wohlford, who is in the wine dealing business with Hal Painter. They remind us of Cohen and Kelly: both think they know all about the business and — for a wonder — they get along very well! We hear that Bob Crabtree and Bud Neily are in Paris, so we are going to visit them. We find Bob is a tailor and Bud is his good looking model. Bud does the advertising while Bob does the selling, greatly bene- fited by his large speech organs and French phrases he learned from Miss Blair while in Pulaski High. We leave Paris the next day as we want to see the big bull fight in Spain. On our way we pass by the Cannibal Islands and so we decide to visit our old friend Calvin Hurst while the ship stops for fuel. Calvin is now the governor of the Cannibal Islands and has at last found some one who will listen to his ideas as to how a government should be run. His assistant and private secretary is Nelle Hailey. Just before we leave we hear an awful noise and see a great crowd gathered around a stump. We go over to investigate and find “Skeebie” King standing on the stump auctioning stove pipe hats and celluloid collars to the natives. Now the whistle blows and we have to go back to our ship. When we reach Spain we are met by Nei! Fine, who is a professor at a university and stands up all day expounding his theories on geometry. His stenographer and social secretary is Elizabeth Morehead.

Class Prophecy HAVING finished my training course at Wurno, thought 1 had seen enough of that kind of life, so decided to travel. Not having seen Elizabeth Cox for some time and hearing that she was going to V. P. I., I plan to drop in on her. She is tired of school life so decides to go with me as a chaperon. While I am at V. P. I. I see Virgil Anderson who is head of the dairy department; he is prospering very well, and with Julius Gray as his assistant old V. P. I. does not seem the same. Frank Elkins is stable boy, and as he shows great interest in the dairy business he has great hopes of some day becoming manager. We travel on and decide to visit Chicago, as the newspaper which Lilburn Jonas edits is overflowing with the mighty deeds and acts of the “Crockett Gang,” which includes Jim Joe Crockett, Dink Whitaker, Tom Huddle, Otis Marshall, and Alfred Whitt, who terrorize the animals of the “Wirt” zoo with their manner of eating peanuts. After visiting these ferocious specimens, we are rushed out to the air- port to take oft for New York in “Speed” Richardson’s airplane, much to Biz’s delight. On arriving at New York, we are met by Virginia Coleman in her limousine, with her chauffeur “Pat” Bocock. She takes us to Madame Board’s famous and exclusive designing department. Then we see Mabel Lewey, Margaret Manuel, Rena Sue Groseclose, and Helen Morehead as models. All of them are dressed in beautiful clothes designed by Madame Board. We are rushed upstairs by Henry Martin, the daredevil elevator boy. Up there we are shown to the radio broadcasting office by the same dare- devil Henry, and hear Miss Ruth Johnson broadcasting over station WJZ. We stay, charmed by her wonderful voice. The next number we hear is “She’ll be Cornin’ Down the Mountain,” sung by our own Graham Davis. It is time for dinner and we are escorted by Virginia Coleman to her home where the door is opened by Jack Bones, the venerable butler. After a delightful dinner we are taken to Madison Square Garden, to see the “Mighty” Hurst in a prize fight with Primo Canerio. We are very much surprised to find that Sam has improved and is actually able to strike him once. Tiring of this bloodthirsty performance, we decide to go to a night 54

We go to the arena to see Early Jordan fight the handsome and danger- ous bull. Oh! here comes the handsome toreador dressed in yellow! And who is the fair senorita leaning over the balcony throwing roses upon the famous Leo, fighter of bulls? Of course it is Frances Kash, who has come to wish him luck. Alas, Leo is hurt and is carried out of the arena, and Emma Myers, a trained nurse, takes charge of him and nurses him back to his rightful beauty, though he will soon fight and loose it again. Now “Biz,” my worthy chaperon, and I are off to the wilds of Africa. As we are traveling along visiting pyramids and places of interest, we come upon Russell Williams and Charles White, extracting articles from the tomb of King Shoam, searching for biscuits just like mother use to make. There was mosquito netting over their heads as they are greatly bothered by the insects and pests that Charles sprays with flv-tox while Russell digs. It is an amusing sight, but we must now go to the good old America. We sail and as we are crossing the English channel we pass Katherine Knapp trying to swim across with her lunch on her back. She’ll get to England and then join us on her trip home. We have had a delightful time and will try to settle down for another fifty years when we will take another trip to cheer old age.
