CLASS PROPHECY Flash! We interrupt this program to bring you a special bulletin. The rocketship, Van Del '57 which has been missing for several days was found early today by a search party. We are able to give you full and exclusive coverage of the rescue operation, and also interviews with the persons aboard. Excitement is great around the ship. As the passengers begin to emerge, we find Rex Adams appear- ing first. Being his happy self he tells us that he is now living in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he is known as the i987 version of Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. In his spare time he is a jockey. Karen Bowden is right behind Rex. After completing our yearbook, she went from school to school helping to edit their books. At long last she has finally gotten into the college of every girl's choice, "West Point. " Ronnie Brenneman has found it is possible to combine work and play. Upon completion of his studies as a veterinarian, he has found time to act in the movies. His fellow Californians' say he is to replace James Dean. As the camera swings to the right we see Evelyn Cowgill, who is doing quite well in her business. She is the owner of a company that puts the dot over the "i" used in vegetable soup. Gary Cooper, the world's greatest tobacco salesman, is discussing the prospect of a huge sale to the armed forces. Bob Davis tells Gary he will do all he can to put the deal through. Bob is the assist- ant to a five-star general. Phyllis Etzler is standing to the left of the group. Phyllis lives in Florida where she and Larry run the "Low Rate-Hard Bed Motel." Bill Friesner is describing to Phyllis the exciting life of a leader of safarias in Africa. Bill tells us he is happily married, and in the tradition of the family, has two sets of twins. Carole Girod, happily married wife ofa coach, is showing Janic Hirn, male model for the Jantzen Bathing Suit Co., pictures of her own little basketball team and cheerleaders. Janic admits he can't give up his glamorous and gay life long enough to settle down. Phil Johns, coach of the "Hutchins All-Stars, " has ioined the group. He tells us his team is tops in the U.S. and is sure to win the National tournament. As the camera swings back, we find some important celebrities gathered at the ship's hull. Yes, it is none other than Jim Long, Shiek of a Turkey Ranch. Jim is owner of a 5,000 acre ranch and is now hunting a suitable wife who won't spend his millions. Standing near Jim is Dennis Longstreth, better known as "Hank. " He has become "Wilt the Stilt's" understudy, and he also plays center for the Boston Celtics. According the Hank, the life of a sportsman is very dashing. Linda Merris is telling Donna Nighswander, the problems of combining a career with being a house- wife. She is running a private school giving advice to the lovelorn. She also tells young girls how to start and settle quarrels with their boyfriends. Donna relates that life as a nurse to a "Sergeant" can be difficult as well as pleasant. Donna is head nurse at a large hospital, specializing in care of sick elephants. Alighting now from the Rocket is Jean Nebel, who designs men's socks. Her work is nationally famous. Her original creations are worn on the feet of some of the most prominent men in America. Help- ing Jean with her luggage is Don, "Killer," Nighswander. Don has made quite a name for himself in the wrestling profession, as he is contender for the world's championship. He was enroute to Chicago for a match when the accident occurred. Ohioans will be relievedlto know that their beloved governor, Ronnie Robeson, was only slightly iniured. Governor Robeson's safety was of grave concern to the entire United States. As our camera moves inside the ship, we find Joan Schaadt telling Dean Stemen that after deciding diamonds are a girl's best friend, she went to Africa to try to find some. As fate would have it, she met and fell in love with a pigmy. She repeats she enioys hearing the patter of his little feet about the house. Dean iust received a promotion and is now chief advisor for a company that puts air in ping- on balls. P aus Tomkins surprised none of us by reaching his goal as an engineer. After completing his college education Gus became chief engineer for c very important company. You can now wave to Gus every- day as his train races along the track. Jim Turner relates that his duties as "Dean of Vassar" aren't as nice as it might seem. But Jim is so indispensable that the Board of Education is sure they will never find anyone quite like him. Now station V.D.H,S, returns you to your regularly scheduled program, "Annual '57. " BORDEN'S CHEESE FACTORY F.D. ACKOM GENERAL INSURANCE 13
