Page Twenty-two T I-I E O R I Q L E
Roanoke, Virginia, june 2, 1943.
Dear Mr. Eckman:
In response to your letter asking for information regarding the present occupations
ofthe Class of '33 l am writing the following:
Christo Pack has a controlling interest in the N. B. C. network.
Paul Davis and his L'VVonder Boys" broadcast their popular dance programs each
Friday and Saturday from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Edythe Martin, with her quiet, sweet ways, is managing the Old Ladies' Home in
Billy Matheney, the declaimer of '33, is now a promising lawyer in Dublin, Virginia.
Each morning at 6:30 Nellie Carrico gives exercises for the early risers which helps
produce good dispositions and figures.
You will be surprised to learn that Herbert Hall is in New York, instructing the
choruses in Ziegfeld's Follies. Yes, Kathleen Hurd is the leading solo dancer.
Several of our class turned their talents toward the art of food making. Do you
remember the girl who always made our bake sales a roaring success? Nancy Bushong is
in Chicago managing a chain of bakery stores. Blanche Aust has charge of the confection-
ary department. You undoubtedly have tasted her excellent fudge.
Anne Vifallace was located, after quite a bit of searching, in the South Sea Isles, sell-
ing Parisian dresses to the natives. Her cunning shop is really quite different from any
I have ever seen.
Du Val Seagle is organist for St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome. l suppose he has over-
come his reluctance to appear in public.
Hazel Davis, as you know, is still residing in Pulaski. A brick bungalow and a
beautiful flower garden keep her quite busy, but in her leisure hours she turns to poetry.
She just completed her outstanding poem, "Conquers the Argonne."
Doris James is in a New York beauty shop advertising "Kissproof Lipstick." A
sample with each sale.
Roy Duncan is chief auctioneer for the Duke Sales Company in San Francisco, Calif.
Mittie Nunn is the head dietician at a new institution in Denver, Colorado, which
attempts to help the underweight folk to gain.
Aulden Lemons still plays havoc with the hearts of the ladies when he gives his week-
ly broadcasts. His voice is as vibrant as ever, and he owes a great part of his success to
the lovely way in which Mary Ellen XVilliams accompanies him. She has written several
of his best l1its.
Stuart Blackburn has won fame as a comic strip artist. "Pop-eye" is his specialty.
Frances Cummings was recently granted a divorce from her husband, Sherman Hall,
in Reno. Unusual as it may seem, an old school mate, Curtis Covey, was the divorce Judge.
