are honored by the presence of the !'Class of '47", who are celebrating their 20th
reunion. Just look at all the celebrities in that happy crowd! There is the famous
newspaper columnist, Joyce Clarke. Hello, Joy. Oh, my goodness, look who just
slunk into the party. It's Bill Bennett, the notorious rnan about town. They say his

noted dancing instructor, Norm Patterson, and look at all the beautiful gals that
have come with him to demonstrate his new dance steps: Beverly Appleman, Joyce
Butcher, Helen Cleveland, Doris Robbins, and Pat Painton.
Well, what have we at this table? It must seem good to the married men to
be out alone for a change. Ah! Angie Muecigrosso, Chuck Clause, Fred Heller.
Jimmy Honeywell? Look, theylre casting their eyes on the next table where we
have four of our more successful career women: Barbara Kuster, full-back on the
first women's football team, Doris Wright, well-known temperance leader, Joan
Dalton, buyer for the men's department of Iszard's, and Margaret Stamp, world
famous horse doctor.
At the next table we have the renowned New York literary critic, Bob
Brougham, and oh, look, who his companion is. Itls the lovely bubble dancer,

Ralph Barden, the local barber is singing bass, while Frank Bystrom, proprietor of
the H6 and Mg Lunchv, is trying to join him, and Doug Blair and George Osborne,
two bartenders, are struggling through the tenor parts.
Look what's coming through the door, late as usual--Kay Titus, author of
that literary masterpiece, 'SForever Evelyn." There's Margaret Aurnick, Broadway
comedy star, coming in with Shirley Collins, New York's social butterfly, whose
name has been linked with that of Arthur Carp, the king pin of the Fulton Fish

well-known policemen, Jerry Sowers and Ken Serfas, have her in hand.
The toastmaster is beginning to speak again. Listen, he's reading telegrams
of regrets from several old schoolmates. We hear the names of Jean TenBroeck.
