Class Prophecy The year of 1965 rolled around before we were much prepared for it, but it was time for us to journey back to Thornburg and see what had happened to the Seniors of 1955, The town has been "booming" and we hardly recognized it when we stepped off the Rock Island Rocket at the new modernistic depot built on the site of the old red depot, We hailed a cab, and the cab driver told us that the town city limits have absorbed the large farm that used to be to the west of the city and that the city extends clear to the strip of black top that was a part of the road to Deep River, That strip of black top is now an emergency runway for the Thornburg Municipal Airport, We were delayed in cross town traffic for fifteen minutes but finally reached the magnificient Hotel Thornburg, owned and operated by Jerome Altenhofen, jerome also owns a large night club next door to the hotel, ln fact, he is known more as a "night club boy" than a hotel owner, As we entered the hotel, none other than Jerome should greet us, I-le seemed very glad to see us and had much to tell us about his business ventures and night club deals, He also told us that he was planning on getting married to the star dancer in his night club revue, As we were standing in the lobby talking, we heard a noise that sounded like a jet had run into a stack of trash cans, We were informed by Jerome that it is the first of the twenty cars which are making the race from Canada to Mexico via Thornburg, We rushed outside to see who it is, and we found none other than the "Digby Special" with Larry "The Monk" Dugger behind the wheel, He has finished the first lap of the race well ahead of the rest of the contestants, He told us that he has stopped playing pro basketball with the Lakers, and is now designing and building sports cars, He also told us that he has received many medals and placques for safe driving and is in great demand as a speaker on safe driving for high school students, He was tired from his drive, so he decided to retire to his room for the night, Nothing would please Jerome, but that we visit his night club, He said he had a special table arranged for us and so we went "night clubbing", Already seated at the table were Keith Tish and his bride, Keith isba large landowner over beyond the Munici- pal Airport, He and his bride had just returned from Bermuda on their honeymoon, On the way home they stopped in Detroit and picked us his new especially made custom built Buick, Keith has been such a good customer of the General Motors Corporation, that he gets his Buicks for cost, As it was getting late, we decided we had better get to bed so that we could see the rest of the Seniors the next day, After a good night's sleep, Jerome took us to the Municipal Airport to meet the T, W, A, flight from Oslo, Norway via the North Pole, Whom should we see step off the plane as the head stewardess, but Norma Grimm, She told us that she has worked for T, W, A, since graduating from Central, In her job she has met lots of interesting men and has finally decided on one, He is a test pilot and has just completed the first trip to the moon, She is planning on getting married in the fall, and her plans also call for " a honeymoon on the moon", We asked her if she saw Nadine very often, and she told us whenever she was in from a flight, for Nadine is married and lives on a large estate south of town, We drove out to see her and she told us that after running a pre-school and taking care of other rich people's brats, she decided to let some other poor girls have the job, Nadine married one of the young bankers in town, and has started her two sets of twins into pre-school for someone else to help take care of, We observed that Nadine is no longer the hard worker that she was in high school, but she is quite adept at keeping her servants on the move, After refreshments at Nadine's house, we decided we should get back to the hotel and get our luggage as we had to catch the 5:45 Rocket from Thornburg. We boarded the train with sad hearts at leaving our old home town, but happy to know that the Seniors of 1955 were all doing so well, We hope to be able to see them all again in 1975, The Junior Class Class Will We, the class of 1955 of the city of Thornburg, county of Keokuk, and state of Iowa, being of sound mind and memory do hereby make, publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament, I, Jerome Altenhofen, hereby will my "Model A" to Larry Walker so he can take Carrol Soults out and my ambition to study American History to Elaine Merz, To Margery Sigafoose I will my ability to try to play basketball and my ability to try to play second base in baseball to Ann White.
