Senior Class History AS TWO Seniors walked into the movies, extracts of their conversation floated on the air. Perhaps it was rude, but because I wondered just what they had thought of their four years of school and because I knew that all Seniors at this time of the year must be entertaining that subject, I listened. Are you curious? Well, I’ll tell you — but don’t let it go any further. “And there were 140 Freshmen jammed into Miss Dalton’s, Miss Frye’s and Miss Kinder’s rooms. ‘Jazz’ Morehead was President and — who was Vice-President?” “Who says my brain isn’t better than yours? Listen, my dear; Jack Lugar was Vice-President and Blanche Covey, Secretary- Treasurer. Am I gloating?” answered number two. “Well, if you are, it’s not for long because I remember these figures — 117 Sophomores with officers: President, Mary Carson; Vice-President, Tommy Combiths, and Secretary-Treasurer, Bonnie Jean Painter for Miss Croswhite’s room. But again mv brain fails me — now, you speak up!” “Miss Kinder’s room elected Blanche Covey President, Henry More- head Vice-President, and Bill Gulliford Secretary-Treasurer, I remember.” “Don’t open your mouth! Yes, there were 63 Juniors in 1936, divided by the Commercial and Academic courses.” Again number one piped, “Oh, yes! there were also some officers such as Mary Carson President; Blanche Covey Vice-President, and Jack Lugar Secretary-Treasurer. That was the year we bid Mr. Ingles adieu and Mr. Rice hello!” “Now we have dwindled until there are only 52 Seniors. But we showed our brains in electing Tommy Combiths President; Bonnie Jean Painter Vice-President; Blanche Covey Secre tary, and Watts Steger Treasurer. Now it’s up to us to show the world our good in our Theatre Oriole with Mary Thorn Painter Editor-in-Chief — ” “Yes, my dear, but the lady behind us says to please shut up — that Robert Taylor’s voice is good enough for her.” And so my neighbors lapsed into silence. 64

Pauline Vinson Dramatic Club ' jj “Polly” possesses much wit, but she is rather shy in using it. Olga W i rt Literary Society ’jy, Reading Club ’j6 We know Olga will go far in life because she has had to come “far” to school. M elvin Whitaker Hi- Y, Debating Club Melvin’s laugh will long be remembered by the class. We wish him loads of success in whatever he does.

Class Prophecy W E ARE the roaming cameramen for the Oriole Theatre. We see, know, hear and tell all about your favorite Senior stars, catching them in the routine of daily life with our camera. We find all our stars carrying on, like the brave soldiers they are. Maurice Brown is the winner of the State Life Insurance Medal for the best sales of the State. He expects to win the World Medal in 1941. Dorothy Bones, who has been teaching home economics for the last ten years, has given up her job and gotten married. She is having much trouble in planning and arrang- ing her own home. A little help, please. Lucille Aust, well known beautician of San Francisco, has discovered the most fashion- able hair dress of the century. It has a very streamlined effect and is worn mostly at bridge parties. Joyce Crabtree has just finished another Broadway hit called “The Path of the De- serted Husband.” Crabtree is classed even greater than Ziegfeld. E. C. Kidd is following in the footsteps of the rest of his tribe. He is now an expert electrician. Dulcie Bentley, well known bass singer, is now starring in a production, “Mississippi Levee.” This production is under the management of Joyce Crabtree. Watts Steger, a chemist of the old school, is building an explosive-proof laboratory. When bigger and better labs are blown up, Watts will blow ’em. Joe Robinson, owner of “The Haberdashery” on Basin Street, New York, is now advertising his new suit for residents of flood districts. The suit is guaranteed not to shrink, and is made of wood pulp to keep the wearer afloat. Aloise Coe has disappeared from the news. No one knows what, where or how she is. Charles Mashburn, big game hunter, is supervising an expedition to South America to hunt antelope, a very harmless beast. In 1940 we find Junior Pike still working in the furniture factory. He hopes that by 1950 he will have become foreman. Pauline Vinson is now typist for the President of the United States. She expects to be promoted soon. Bruce McCall, graduate of V. P. I., has taken up dairy farming in a big way with small cows because they eat less. Flash! Blanche Covey has just won her second world championship typist contest. May her f ingers always be nimble. Garnett Lyons is giving a vocal solo Friday night for the Navy at the Submarine base. The Navy is on a sit-down strike and we have the greatest confidence that this will solve the problem. After all, the solo would sound better under water, wouldn’t it? 65
