I decided that as long as I was where

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-
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

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
