The kick that had put me there would have made I shall not relate the incidents are too personal and retributlve I landed in the middle of 1950. I was, I might just as well look that it would be fun to find out doing. I hired an airplane from any college football punt look sick. leading up to the klck because they for this narrative. As I said before, I decided that as long as I was where around. The thought crossed my mind what my old school chums of l939 were a place that had Nalrplanes to rentu and began a tour of this vast land. I headed East and was soon over the large city of New York. The air traffic was terrific but I finally managed to find a parking space on the Empire State Building which was a midget compared to some of the buildings surrounding it. I allghted from my plane and started in search of a mechanic who could give the plane the once over so that lt would be in good condition when I ret- urnea. A mechanic was walking toward me across the platform. I started talking to him in a business like manner without really looking at him. As'I finished my instructions, I looked at the mechanic and who should I be talking to but Jimmie Murphy. Just then another mechanic in the person of Holly Salisbury came saunterlng up. They told me that they had a very good business repairing planes. Just as I was about to leave, a redheaded girl, beautifully dressed in furs, paused slightly after ascending the stairs to the platform. She commanded her plane in a superclllous tone and when it was whirled over to her, placed herself in it with all kinds of dignity. A long line of people carry- ing numerous bundles, followed her to her plane and disposed of their burdens in the baggage compartment. I thought that pompus person sit- ting in her plane looked very familiar. I started to walk toward the plane to command a closer view, but just at that time, one of the box carriers fell-headlong and the contents of his bpx went flying in all directions. The lady began to laugh and suddenly I knew who she was. There was no mistaking that laugh. There was only like it ln all the world and that belonged to Betty Watkins. I spoke to Betty and she instantly recognized me. It was surprising how she suddenly lost all her dignity and became like she always was, tlttering and amiable. She told me that she was living on a farm QI had no doubt that it was probably an estate! outside of West Winfield with her tall, dark hus- band. She had been shopping for the afternoon in New York. After exchanging a few more pleasantries, she flew off in her plane, and I took the elevator to the ground. I went out of the building into the street which, on accountlof the tall buildings, was lighted by artificial sunlight. I bought a paper because I thought it would be fun to see what international affairs were like in 1950. It so happened that the man at the news- paper stand gave me the wrong paper. The paper was not the famous New York Paper I had ordered but a small town paper edited in East Winfield, New York. As I was about to return the paper, my eye ca- ught a name on the front page. Kelly--Frank Kelly. Glanclng upward, I read the title of the featured article of the week, writer of the Editor. It was uln My Oplnionn, by Frank Kelly. One thought crossed my mind. I never knew Kelly wanted to be an editor, but the prof- ession is suitable to him. However, I returned the paper and rec- eived a copy of the one I had ordered. I reserved a room in the Waldorf Astoria. Everything was so modernlstic ln the hotel that I was completely lost upon coming out of my room. As I walked along a maze of tortuous corridors, I became more and more mixed up. Finally, I came to a staircase. I walked down the stairs and enticed a narrow hall. At the end of this hall was a round completely white would have known Nobody seemed to swinging door. I pushed open the door and entered a room. 'Beyond all doubt lt was a kitchen, but I never lt, if it hadn't been for the people working there. notice me much so I decided to look around. I was looking over my shoulder at a man making bread when I bumped into some one. I looked around culckly with apologies all over my tongue, but they were never said because I was too surprised to talk. I was look- ing at Jimmie Doran who was head dish washer at this hotel. Jimmie had to get right back to his work and therefore d1dn't have much time to talk to me. However, he did show me the way out of the hotel. New York had changed so much from the time I last saw it fSen1or Trip l939l that I had great difficulty finding my way around. I walk- ed for half an hour with no object in mind. I really hadn't noticed the time as I had been so busy looking at modernized New York. I cont- inued on.my way and suddenly came to a large black and white building which bore the sign 'Cotton Club.n Two people were just standing, looking at the door as if they expected it to open at any moment. I walked up to them with the purpose of asking directions. WPardon me,u I said, but that was as far as I got. The two people were none other than Kilt and Buck. They told me that they were waitors here and were waiting for someone to open the door for them so they could go in. I asked them if they weren't afraid of losing their jobs but they said it didn't matter if they lost their old Jobs. Conversing with them further, I learned that Ralph Griffith was in Texas and I made a men- tal note to stop there on my tour. After getting directions from the boys, I opened the door for them and then continued on my way. I went into one of the larger department stores. As usual I was completely lost. I finally found the women's wardrobe dept. and was cordially and warmly greeted by a charming girl who seemed to be the head of the department. S e had striking blue eyes and ultra upsweep hair do. It took me quite a few minutes to realize I was talking to Helen Colwell. From her I learned that Janet Smith was at the head of the style department in another large New York Store and that she CJanetJ went to the Paris openings twice a year. Helen also said that Janet often encountered there Mildred Sandford who was studying voice culture in Paris. Consulting with Helen further, I learned that Eliz- abeth Kehoe had her own exclusive dress shop on Fifth Avenue. I could imagine that Beth was probably her own best model. I bought a becom- ing l9bO made dress which Helen very efficiently helped me select, and left the store after receiving directions to Beth's shoppe. Arriving at Beth's Shoppe, I was escorted into Miss Kehoe's private office by Margaret Shermeta, Beth's trim and efficient Private Secretary. Beth was so much like her old self that I felt quite at home, even though I was in the midst of ultra modern grandeur. We had a grand time talking about Beth's lucrative business. However, it wasn't long before we were reminiscing. I remembered that Beth and Kathleen Huntley had been very good high school friends and so I in- quired about Kit. It seems that she had realized her life long ambit- ion and was running a beauty salon in Ilion. After being personally conducted through Beth's shopoe, I returned to my hotel, gathered up my few belongings, and started for my plane. I was going to continue my tour of 1950. I headed South with no purpose in mind. I passed several pass- enger planes all of which were decorated by advertising. On several of the ads on these planes I saw a very familiar face. On more cldsely scrutinizing this ad, I recognized the face of Cecelia Christian. Her natural curly eyelashes were advertising mascara and eye make-up. As my plane was speedy and the time went fast, I was soon over Miami, Florida. Never having seen this famous place, I decided to land and look over the future of it. I spent a day and a night exploring Miami. The one startling event that happened to me there, was my sur- prising meeting with Earl Palmer. Earl was running a Drug Store and was doing a very good business. I hadn't any intention of leaving the United States, but Earl said that if I went to Havana, Cuba, I would no doubt run into Joe Horan. As looking up the class of '39 was my primary idea, I went to Cuba. There at the exact snot where Earl had told me I would find him, was Joe Horan doing a Rhumba act in a Havana night club. One couldn't miss that red hair. when Joe had finished his act, he came over to my table, having recognized me before. He told me that dancing was just a side line with him. His main business was running a tobacco farm in the country. Joe was as nice and danced as well as he had in l939. I left Cuba that night and flew most of the night over the Gulf-of Mexico. Just about dawn I landed in a small Texas oil town where I had been told I would find Ralph Griffith. Sure enough, as I walked down the street later in the day, I was confronted by a large sign which boasted of Griffith's Oil Refinery. I found Ralph's private office. Ralph was the exact picture of the industrious, prosperous, business man. He personally conducted me on a tour of his refinery. We were constantly accompanied by a tall, serious looking person. I didn't notice him especially until Ralph called my attention to him. He was Alex Cursh. He was Ralph's private secretary and also his bodyguard. J 1 i 4 As usual, Alex said nothing. As soon as we again reached Ralph's off- ice, he was swept up again in his workg so I left. When I left Texas, I was determined to do a little exploring. I had read an advertisement which told of, and showed pictures of Hull's Dude Ranch in Nevada. I had a sneaking suspicion that the Ranch was now run by Ann Hull. I flew over the state of Nevada sometime before I located a building that announced itself as Ann Hull's Dude Ranch, to all air traffic. I landed and inquired of the boy who took over my plane, before I could find the owner. Following the boy's directions, I went to the corral. Ann was then watching some of her Whandsu train- ing horses. She hadn't changed a bit. Her position suited her and she seemed extremely happy. Ann offered to give me riding lessons and to throw a big party for me if I would stay. However, I declined the off- er, having other business to attend to. As Ann and I were walking to- ward the ranch, we encountered, among other people a rather large, athletic woman. Ann said, niou remember Veronica Byrnes, don't you?N I was surprised at finding NBonnieu in such a place and said as much. They both expIained to me that WBonnien was Dean of Women at Penn State and that she spent all her spare time at Ann's Dude Ranch. Reluctantly I took my leave of two of my oldest friends. I had always wanted to go to Hollywood and time than the present. In Hollywood, I went to up and coming actress, Edith McMillan, made her looking over the set on which Boris Karloff was picture. Mr. Karloff's stand-in was none other there seemed no better a Premier in which the debut. Later I was making a new horror than my old school mate, Robert Knapp. Bob informed me that he owned a ranch on which he raised citrus fruits outside of Hollywood. He spent all his time there when he wasn't working at the studio. Bob gave me that if I went to this address, I would find me an address and told a big surprise. SUPP?- ises intrigue me so I went to the address. It was an office of a big producer. His private secretary was, of course, Virginia Rising. Nat- urally, Ginny and I fell to talking on the common days. I learned from her that Harriett Welch was Belgian Congo. Cnce when Ginny's job interrupted picked up a magazine and started glancing through over the pages, I caught a glimpse of a face that ground of our school a missionary in the our conversation, I it. As I skinned looked vaguely fam- iliar. Recovering the place, I decided that the face belonged to How- ard Palmer. He was advertising Arrow Shirts. Ginny confirmed my dec- ision and said that Howard had a chance for a movie contract. After spending a few more hours in Hollywood, I climbed into my plane and headed North. Somewhere over the state of Montana, motor trouble forced me to land in a small clearing in an isolated part of the state. Upon landing, I had noticed something that looked like a lookout tower. I left my plane and commenced to walk through the woods, toward the tower. It was a good three mile walk and when I came out in- to the clearing in which the tower stood, I was pretty well exhausted. A few feet from the steel girders of the tower was a small cabin with a lean-to kitchen. Smoke was coming from a dilapitated chimney prot- ruding from the lean-to. I presumed that this was a Forest Ranger's cabin. I knocked on the door and was confronted by Albert Will. After recovering sufficiently from my surprise, I introduced myself to Albert, as he d1dn't seem to recognize me. He remembered me instantly and made me feel completely at home in his cabin. I told him my difficulty and, after we had eaten a lunch which he had prepared, he set out to see if he could fix my plane. Left to myself, I explored my surroundings. From the pictures and news items covering the walls of the cabin, I gathered that Albert had played professional football before becoming a Forest Ranger. Sometime later Albert returned and said that the plane was ready to fly. I thanked him for his kindness and set off for the plane. My tour next took me to Montreal. I landed at that Canadian City, and began a tour of inspection. At a famous Concert Hall, I heard two famous artists, brother and sister, whom I knew very well. After the concert, I went backstage and lauded John and Josephine Koenig for their splendid work. John played the violin and Josephine sang Contralto. We talked about the class of '39 of which John had been the President. From Montreal, I flew Southeast to Boston, where John and Jos- ephine had told me I would find Faith Lohnas. Faith was running a very famous bride's school. I promised Faith that if I ever decided to get married, I would take a course at her school. I had completed my circuit and so, began the last lap back to West Winfield, In the Ilion Gorge, I set my plane down on a spacious air landing field, which the owners of the Black and White had made for air service. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Burnett were proprietors of the stand Mrs. Burnett was formerly Marion Connor. These occurences did not surprise me. Paul and Marion told me that Francis Brewer was married and lived on a farm somewhere in North Winfield, They also told me that if I visited the West Winfield Central School, I would find Arlene Cole teaching students typing and accounting, and Ruth Rice teaching Home Economics. I remembered that it was Arlene who had typed the Class Prophecy after I had finished writing it back in 1939 I had witnessed the whereabouts of every member of the class, except myself. However, I d1dn't have to see myself in 1950. I knew what I would be doing then. I was pretty sure that I was in New York doing Commercial Art work and singing as a sideline. I took my rented plane back to the place where I had rented lt. It seems that I had kept it much longer then the time I had rented lt for. The owner of the plane was very angry. In fact, he was furious In fact, he kicked me and I whirled through space and landed ln 1939 where I had left off. --Cornie Benif GRADUATION Yes, clasp the parchment tightly these few hours And learn to know ach1evement's haunting taste: Roll triumph on your tongue before lt soursg Do not rush with superficial haste Through this experience. Be glad And proud to hold the prize you struggled for, Believe there's nothing further to be had --That you will be content forevermore. Believe it till you wake some sudden dawn, When all the world's ablaze with sunlight fire To find that poor illusion strangely gone Before the splendor of a new desire. In silence you will lay this scroll away, And that will be your Graduation Day. --John Urbanek CLASS HISTORY Flower: Daisy Colors: Green and White Motto: Forward-Upward-Onward FRESHMAN 1935-1936 President: Janet Smith Vice President: Jean Keegan Secretary: Betty Watkins Treasurer: Earl Palmer Sept.-Jan.

James Murphy leaves his ability to be on the clean up comm- ittees to Charles Palmer. Marion Connor leaves the other half of Ktheirj hall to Esther Cole. Arlene Cole hereby leaves her ability to fix her hair and al- so a comb to Helen Knapp so that she, in the future, may fix her hair, neatly.

Roland Salisbury bequeaths to the Junior boys several girls addresses in Whltesboro. Lynn Burch bequeaths to Mr. George Kirby his Little Orphan Annie ring so that he may see behind him. It will be noticed that we have left bequests to all the classes except the present Freshman Class which will soon be known as the Sophomore Class. We have left them nothing because by that time their self-valuation will have reached such heights that nothing in our possession would be regarded by them as worthy of their distinctions. To our dear school building itself we, the Senior Class, bequeath the peaceful quiet caused by our absence and any wade of gum, apple cores, or crumpled notes that we have left behind.

The serious thought of graduation and the happy thought of spending three days in New York with the rest of his class on the yearly Senior Trip. We are leaving West Winfield at 11:00 A.M. on June 28, and intend to arrive at Hotel Plc- cadilly about 6:00 P.M. and have dinner in the Hotel dining room. Later that evening we will take the combined National Broadcasting Company Studio and Television Tour. This tour will take approximatly one and one half hours and will be conducted by trained guides. It will include visits to points of interest in the development and a description of all art work, architectural features, and the history of our project. We expect to find the television Studio very interesting for this is such a modern invention. The upper floor of the seventy story RCA Building will be our next aim. This story, 850 feet above the street is a promenade 200 feet long and 20 feet wide. We are anxious to see how it feels seventy stories up. At the end of the tour we will stop at the Radio City Music Hall for a movie and the HRockettes.H If time permits before retiring, we hope to see the Bright Lights of Broadway. The following morning we will board the yacht Marilda at West 42nd St. and Hudson River. On this boat trip we will see Ellis Island Immigration Station, Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, Queensborough Bridge, Tri-borough Bridge, and the Navy Yard and see the cruisers and Battleships anchored and the New York Skyline. The afternoon and evening will be spent at the New York World's Fa1r.Perhaps later that evening we will visit floor 102, of the Empire State Building, 1250 feet above the ground. Friday morning we are allowed to do any individual sight-seeing or shopping that we wish. In the afternoon we will start for home, tired but happy andqfull of the wonders of New York. --Betty Jane Watkins -x 149 S if f-7 fy 5 w QM A Sw Fmqlummg - 1 ,Inf N W In 1 SALUTATORY Tonight marks the occasion of another commencement exercise to be held in West Winfield, and the sixth from this-our new school. We are indeed happy to see such a well filled assembly, and we, the class of 1939 most heartily welcome you to our graduation. We know that a feeling of deep interest and pride prompted your presence here-- to share with us our joy--and we sincerely appreciate it. We have enjoyed our four years in high school together, and tonight we are filled with contrasting emotions- ---Regret-that our school days are over---Happiness that we have attained the goal for which we have striven. We trust that our accomplishment which brings Joy to our hearts tonight, may be increased many times in the ensuing years. In closing let me once again, on behalf of my class-mateS extend to you a most cordial welcome. --Janet Smith VALEDICTORY We are gathered here tonight to commemorate the close of our hlgh school career and the commencement of a new life in which we hope to make even a greater contrib- ution to the world's heritage. It would be unfair to pass into l1fe's sterner side without first thanking you for giving us a start on such a clear, calm sea. Without your aid we might have been retarded by many barriers that would threaten to wreck our vessel for life. To you, our teachers and friends, we express our sincere thanks for all you have so cheerfully done for each one of us, and we trust that the years to come may demon- strate to your satisfaction as well as to our own that you were really as successful as your ambitions could desire, in turning us out-men and women. We expect great things from ourselves, and we trust that you, too, may look forward to great things from us and that you may not be disappointed. Parents, we realize that it is your silent influence, throughout the under- current of our school activities, that has laid the foundation for this hour and has made it possible for us to stand thus proudly before you. We now begin to grasp more definitely the value of your work in installing into our minds your own lofty We do realize how greatful we must be to you, through principles and noble ideals. all life, for these years of training. Tonight we stand at the very gateway of l1fe's activities, prepared by these years of careful instruction and watchful guidance to make our lives hapry ones. As we look back how easy it is to estimate the Wvalue receivedu of our school days. Now our time has come for the working out of our npromise to pay!W The world will at once look at us to pay back the wealth of good things it has been bestowlng upon us. It will demand our noblest character, our highest demonstrations of attainment, and our most faithful, self-sacrificing service. So as we step forth we hope to walk ln- to the world bravely, with full realization of all that is required of us, and of our ability to meet every requirement. We hope to make our controlling spirit the loy- alty, courage, resolution, and high minded integrity shown in these lines with which we must now bid each other farewell, SAW A THOUGHT,-REAP AN ACTIONg SAM AN ACTION,-REA?

They left the party at school last night, With orders from Prof. to go homey They nodded with sober faces, But westward they did roam. I heard ln the library next morning The murmer of whispering lips, As English notes were consulted In hopes they'd make fewer slips. The sound of a door that is opened With voices soft and sweet They tried to convince Miss Turner To give them their test next week.

Lucky is the executive who has as his secretary this efficient young lady. A dash of nonsense and a shake of fun, Plus earnestness in the classroom, makes his career well begun. Search far and near and o'er the sea, no better friend you'll find than she. May every charm that now appears, increase and brighten throughout the years. She is full of pep, we know, full of dash and vim and EO. Ever happy, ever wise, winning ways and sparkling eyes. Tranquil people accomplish much. To know how to hide one's ability as uAlexW does is great skill. Surely his smile and jolly ways, success will bring in later days. nGr1ffn is one who has purchased a one-way ticket to success. At dancing uJody'sn tops, ln sports he holds full sway, And his level-eyed sincerety will bring success some day. A cheery face, a merry disposition, WEnnan leaves a warm spot in our hearts. Lots of fun and a cheery smile, may they stay with you nK1tH all the while. Friendly, clever, sweet, and gay, we'll boast uL1sbethu any day.

Now and then a little fun, and now and then some work, but never any time to shirk Faith is a quiet little miss with much perserverance. A sweet attractive kind of grace. NArt' is a possessor of two rare qualities, loyalty and honesty. To him we know success will come, for nJ1m'su a good fellow chuck full of fun. Courtesy, industry, and a pleasing personality--Earl. A personality rare indeed, a friend, if ever a friend you need. The typewriter holds her keys to success. A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance. A fellow more nclean cutu than 'hollien can't be found. She has bright hair and pretty eyes, and in her studies she's always wise. 'Ta1n't her hair--'ta1n't her smile--'ta1n't her eyes--'ta1n't her w1les-- 'Ta1n't her silvery voice you say. Tell you what, 1t's just her way! She that is wise says little. Would that we could have to bless us, half the poise that she possesses. She's studlous and witty, we'll not deny, that she's full of fun we can testify. Harr1ette's path through life will be a friendly one, His sense of humor brightens the classroom, his original thinking, the mind 'Ep's' touchdowns everyone will remember, when our class is divided by time. siuderds if E Q 'EQ Q Nil , was 'QQ 15 55?
