Class Prophecy From my window I could see the huge building taking shape as I sat thoughtfully before the fire. Watching the building rise higher into the sky, I saw it as an individual, created from a plan. I closed my eyes and thought of this building in comparison with lives --the lives of my classmates, who will soon graduate from Walstonburg High. I thought of each of them as a building- -an individual- -and of Walston - burg school and its teachers as the plan which has worked to shape each of their lives for the past twelve years. I began to wonder what each of them would do with the knowledge they have acquired at school, just how would they fit into the pattern of Life? My thoughts seemed to open a door to the future and I could see clearly what fate held in store for them. Suddenly, I stood inside a beautiful hospital where Barbara Jean Craft sat as receptionist. Judging from the second ring on her left hand, she and Jimmy have taken that fatal step. Down a corridor hurried a doctor and nurse. The nurse is Doris Jean Dildy, working for Doctor William R. Jenkins. Bingo, having finished at Carolina, is now head man on the hospital staff. The hospital faded and I was inside a large high school. Here was none other than James Harrell patiently drilling his ball team for an important game. His look of contentment proved that teaching physical education and coaching was the right place for him. Over in the agriculture shop, discussing some new plan for farming with the agriculture teacher, Robert Cox, sat William Galloway and Philip Beaman. State graduates, Robert has chosen teaching and Phil farming. Both he and Pee Wee are quite successful farmers in the region. The school, too, vanished and I found myself before a very modern radio station. Entering, I im- mediately recognized Edwin Jones ' voice. I discovered that Ed was not only top announcer but owner also. Hearing the constant tapping of a typewriter, I ventured into a small office where Carol Norman sat dili- gently typing. She was enjoying her job as typist and bookkeeper here. The sound of the typewriter died away and in its place came the beautiful strains of Mendelssohn’s Wedding March as GraceCox walked down the aisle to meet Alex, and after the ceremony they leave for Maryland to make their home. This scene faded and before me I could see the huge Dupont plant. As the shift changed and the men came out I recognized Donnie Langston. Shot must be working himself steadily to the top, for he wore that familiar confident smile. As the buildings faded into the distance a large department store loomed ahead of me. Busy at one of the counters were Doris Hardison and- Elizabeth Holloman. Pug and Lib are making names for themselves as outstanding salesladies. Hearing what sounded like an argument in the manager’s office, I could not suppress my curiosity to go closer and peek in. There sat state accountant Gerald, he will win for he al- ways was a great talker. The clatter of tools drew my attention and I saw James Suggs working industriously on an automobile. A " top-notch " mechanic, James now owns his own service station. The station vanished and I stood on a dock watching a ship come in. Among the sailors to come ashore was Pat Owens. Pat is well on the way to becoming a deep sea diver for the Navy. Turning to go, I spied Josie Baker about to board an ocean liner. Josie, yes, it seems that she is leaving the United States to fulfill her ambition. Josie at last is on her way to India as a missionary. After all the excitement and rush of the cities and docks, the quiet little white house which now appeared seemed so restful. Inside sits Mary Ruth Cobb peacefully rocking and looking as if nothing in the world could be finer than keeping house and looking after husband Douglas. I opened my eyes and realized that the men had stopped work on the building next door. I must have dropped off to sleep- -and yet I don’t feel sleepy. Maybe fate was just letting me take a special peek into the future. Marilu Burch Class Prophet
