THE CYCLONE mflmvm-f. - uanirimnnmgf wi :itil 7TiI 7TH V-il . CLASS PROPHECY ' It was the spring of 1940. I had read of Marion Lane's wonderful trip two years be- fore, on a trip to Washington to look up the members of the Senior class of 1928. I had thought of trying it myself, and now after ten long years I was going back to Washing- ton to find my classmates of 1930. I hated the thought of traveling alone, so I sent a telegram to Ruth Scott, in Albany. She, as you know, was formerly Ruth Cam- eron, an had married R. Hamilton Scott after his graduation from Yale. I got an answer the very next day, saying that she had found a maid to take care of Wilford and would go with me. On Good Friday we met at the depot in Albany and took the sleeper to Washington. We arrived at Union Station about 8:00 o'clock Saturday morning, and it looked the same as ever. We went immediately to the Annapolis Hotel. The bell hop who took us to our room was rather short and stout. Ruth and I looked at each other, then we both said, "John Hall." I remembered that John thought quite a lot of the bell hops we had seen in New York, at Hotel McAlpin. We told John of our quest, and he wanted us to inform him of any parties or reunions. That night we went to the Congressional Library. There we met George Hayes look- ing at the Declaration of Independence. We were astounded at seeing him there. George told us that he was staying with his cousins on Chesapeake Bay. We knew that he meant Connie and Ken Wells. Connie Wells was formerly Connie Hayes. We got in touch with Connie and she invited us to come out the following Tuesday night. Next we tele- phoned John to let him know, and he in- formed us of the arrival of "Ernie" Filkins and "Joey" Fisher at the Annapolis, on their honeymoon. Two more found! The next day was Easter Sunday. We went to the Methodist Episcopal church in order to see the President. We were more surprised to see the Rev, F. Hiram Montena in the pulpit. We met "Monty" after church and told him about our journey. Ruth and I then decided to visit the Franciscan Monas- tery. Our guide was quite tall. He looked strangely familar. At last it came to me, "The Eighteen Carat Boob." But now Paul Russell had an entirely different manner. We gave Paul his invitation to the big party, and he said he would be there. Monday we visited the Capitol and some public buildings. At the Treasury Building we saw some high school pupils looking at a fifty thousand dollar bill. We caught a glimpse of the man who was holding it- Reginald Lanfear. Well, this was a surprise. That night we went to Raleigh Hotel, where Congressman Smith and Mrs. Smith, formerly Wilford Smith and Ernestine Rist, were giving a reception for the Senior class- es of Northern New York, who were visit- ing Washington. After talking to "Woody" and 'tRistie" for a short time, we turned around and much to our amazement we were facing Prof. Arthur Dickinson. He was act- ing as chaperone over a class of twenty-five dignified Seniors from Warrensburgh I-Iigh. The orchestra sounded extraordinarily good, and we discovered that it was under the direction of Donald Goodrich, and that Eliza- beth Heath was playing a slide trombone. There was only one day left before the big night in which to find the remaining members. We sent a telegram to Ruth Mit- chell and Ruth E. Cameron, whom we had learned had just left the stage in New York city. In the morning, Ruth and I decided that we must have a new dress and get a mar- celle. We went to a select French shoppe, where Ruth had seen a dress thta she liked very much. It was not long before we found that Minnie Morrison was a model there. We bought our dresses and started out again. We went by a large hospital in front of which some nurses were wheeling some invalids. One especially attracted us be- cause she was jabbering Spanish as fast as her tongue could dy, to her patient, who was a very cute Spaniard with a moustache. As we drew near we recognized the nurse as Julia Winslow. She told us that she and the gentleman were to be married after his recovery, and also promised to see us Tues- day night. Now for our marcelles. We went to the Champs Elysee Beauty Shoppe. The beauty specialist we found there was none other than Irma Stone. She had just finished telling about herself, when Madame de Montjay, the great musician, swept in. Madame, we soon learned, was our school musician, June Reynolds. That afternoon we went to the Fox the- atre. As we went by the home of the Chief of Police we heard a familiar voice calling, "Marjorie-e-e, Marjorie-e-e." How thorough- ly familar the name and the voice sounded. There was Marjorie Russell, or rather Mar- jorie Hause, for now she was the wife of the chief of police and had three beautiful 1Continued on Dage 79 ' ra35A4l I v 'ff-i X1FfN 1n'fYK'fX1ffX1'l5X1f 1I'f'GPf'W I iron 1 i I I '1

DI DI QI 5 S Q ': 2 1 I - As everything worthy of a name has a history, so we, the class of 1930, have one, and while the events herein related may not seem of much importance to the reader, they mean a lot to us. It was a fine day ln September, 1926, that a group of twenty-two shy and awkward boys and girls walked hesitatjngly into the realm of great wisdom, called High School, to begin their Freshman year. We welcom- ed to our fold eight more who came here from other schools. We all entered whole- heartedly into our studies under the general direction of Professor Wegner. During this year we were very much saddened by the death of one of our members, Jay Merri- thew. When, next year, we came back as Sopho- mores, we were twenty-seven in number, it was with a great deal of anxiety, for we were to have a new professor and staff of teachers. However, it did not take us long to learn that our fears were unfounded, for we soon learned to respect and love them. We gave a party to the Freshmen, and in re- turn they entertained us. We also spent an joyable evening at the home of Minnie Mor- rison. We had by this time overcome most of our shyness and awkwardness. All through our high school career, we have had the distinction of being the largest class in the history of the school, and, now in our Junior year, even though we were only twenty-four. ten boys and fourteen girls, we still held that place of honor. It was during this year that, after much con- sideration, we selected and purchased our class rings. On Commencement night, we gave a dance to earn money for our Wash- ington trip, which we had long looked for- ward to, but with little hope of ever get- itng there because of the large number in our class. Next year when we resumed our studies in Warrensburgh High, it was as Seniors, possessed with much of the so-called Senior dignity. We organized our class with Fran- cis Montena as president and Dorothy Lew- is as treasurer. At a party held at the home of O. Ruth Cameron, we chose crim- son and white as our class colors, and the crimson rose as our class flower. We con- ducted several food sales, gave a movie en- titled "His First Command," and a play, "The Eighteen Carat Boob," which was suc- cessfully coached by Miss Zimmerman, Miss Foster and Miss Tubbs, in order to earn money for our Washington trip. Thanks to the patronage of the citizens of Warrens- burgh, we at last had the required sum. When the eventful and long looked for day of April 18 finally arrived, it found twenty- three Seniors, with Mr. Ripton as chaper- one, ready to board the train at Thurman station, where we were given a large send- off. We spent a very enjoyable time and saw many places of interest in Washington and New York, returning home April 26, tired but happy. An now, even though we are looking for- ward to Commencement and graduation, there is mingled with the joy of it a note of sadness, as we have come to fully realize that we are about to close an important chapter in our lives, and we regret leaving our dear old Alma Mater, our classmates and the teachers who have so faithfully helped us to attain the long sought for goal. We sincerely hope our lives may be a credit to them and a help to those with whom we come in contact as we go out into the world to continue our education. ERNESTINE RIST, '30 loo...- HISTORY OF THE FRESHMAN CLASS-1929 AND 1930 In September of 1929 the new Freshman Class of W. H. S. began their career in high school with high spirits. They had not en- tirely forgotten their truthful motto of. "Work and Win," so they began with a will. In high school they found many new prob- lems before them. New subjects like latin, biology, civics, etc., but these pupils had been well trained and they at once settled down for four years of hard study. One of the first events in the history of the class was its organizing. At the first class meeting the oilicers were elected, namely as follows: President, Wilson Mon- tena: vice president, Lillian Russell, secre- tary, Iman Cahillg treasurer, Hayward Street. Dues were agreed upon and each pupil agreed to save funds for their Wash- ington trip in the school bank. The first class party was the initiation party, This passed as have many others given since then at which times all pupils enjoyed themselves a great deal. The time is now nearing when the Sen- iors of 1930 will be leaving Warrensburgh High School and leave behind them aschool and many friends to whom their thoughts will often reflect, and they will no doubt re- member that noisy class of Freshmen who now extend a hand of farewell, wishing them success and happiness in the future.
