CLASS OF '48 REUNION IN 1960
AT THE GILDED OSTRICH CLUB
Welcome to alll Welcome to the reunion of
the class of '48 of Williard junior High School.
Who would want a better setting than that play-
boy's, The Gilded Ostrich Club, owned by
that miracle man, Walter North? The place is
reallyubeautiful. Aren't we lucky to be the first
ones here? What is that we see on the purple
and chartreuse walls? Why, they are original art
creations by john Condon and Richard Turner.
We all know they have stormed the art circles
with their super guess what it is pictures. That
blankwhite space is so easy on the eyes. We
have just heard that all the interior decorating
was the product of that genius of the interior
decorating world, Claire Vedensky. Her ismotto,
why not put bright colors together when l have
an assistant like jean Gilbert to pass out sun
A Am I mistaken or is that the magnificent
orchestra of jimmy Rhodes? Look at him beating
it out on the piano. We are also glad to see
Keith Foise, the star clarinetist of the group.
People are already beginning to arrive and
Audrey Megerian, that darling little cigarette
girl, has started to peddle her wares.
My goodness! People are coming in so fast
we can hardly keep track of them. Look over
there! W'ho's that peeking in through the crack?
Why it's that magician, Harold Sawyer. Hi -
The doorman, Alfred-Harvey has just an-
nounced the arrival of the Teeny Weeny Two,
those sensational songstresses who have
climbed the ladder of success so quickly.
You've guessed it, they're none other than Gay-
zelle Burks and Lucille Darkins.
Sneaking in the side door trying to avoid pub-
licity, is Michaele Agostini, chief electrician of
the current musical hit, The Gayeties of Gerald-
ine, produced by that stock market tycoon,
Stanley Batten, and directed by the wonder of
wonders, Scott Carey. lt is currently playing at
the Bijou, which is owned by that admired busi-
ness man, john Reed.
As all the familiar people pour in, our minds
'Winder fora minute to faraway landsf Yes,
We're thinking of Carol Christiansen, famous
opera star, now appearing in Denmark. She sent
her regards since she was too booked up to
. I hear that later in the evening Elyse Dukova
-Dukatz to you-will perform one of her famous
ballets for us and accompanying on the violin
will be that girl of the strings, jule Kreutter.
As we qlance over the menu, we see that
we will have Chinese food creations prepared
by those world famous chefs, Richard Louie and
Peter Lew. My, it sounds good!
We also notice that the famous soda fountain
owner, Henry lwamoto, has brought some spin-
ach ice cream with him for everyone's desert
We can't help but notice the lovely gowns
that Ginger Williams, the creator of Vanishing
Perfumes, Inc., and Mary Ellen Carr, professor
of Spanish, are wearing. They are the marvel-
ous, stupendous work of that fashion designer,
As we look across the room at a corner table,
Linda Byrnes and Barbara Harris catch our eyes.
Linda is famous for her july Christmas cards,
which surprised everyone. Barbara is the one
and only manager of the Wipe Away That Un-
wanted l:'ace beauty salon in New York.
My, time changes! Who could have guessed
that j. Edgar Davis Cbetter known as Percyj, de-
tained in Washington tonight, would become
head of the P.B.l. in such a short time? Also that
the famous furriers, who created the sensational
What-Fur? coats, Dale Quella and George
lnerbickler, could find time to fly all the way
from Peru to be at our reunion?
4' Look! Can it be? Yes, there are those Arctic
Explorers, Bob Harter and Phil Dimitriou, in from
Alaska, by way of the patented Bill Foley six-
sided canoe. They look so rustic in their white
We certainly feel honored to have john Brown
in our presence. Everyone is talking about his
bout last week when he stole the title of Heavy-
weight Champion ofthe World from joe Louis, jr.
We notice that there is a slight breeze from
above. No wonder, the roof is opening to let in
Raymond Franklin and his airplane. The news
has just come to us that Ray and his navigator,
Linn Holmes, have made a record flight around
the World. Good work, boys!
We almost missed our chance before the roof
closed to seghe beaug new planegput in the
sky for this occasion by our astronomer-class-
mate, Le Verne Garcia.
The lights in the room are dimming and all
eyes are turned to the stage, where Nancy johns,
our Texas Songstress, will sing an original song
by that current song-writer, joel Dyles. The name
of the number is, Who Slapped Me In the
Stomach With A Swordfish, l've Got Holes ln
Me Now. CContinued on page 65

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE 'E
Someone has called courtesy the hgppy Wcty of doing things. In a World
where there is altogether too much selfishness and conflict, courtesy is more
unusual than it should be. Traffic experts tell us that many of the traffic accidents,
with their resulting loss of life and property, are due to violations of common
courtesy. So also, many of the minor difficulties between persons are due to a
lack of courtesy - a failure or unwillingness to consider the other fellow cmd
his rights. Life is never so short but that there is always time for courtesy.
H. N. MCCLELLAN
This term has been most successful due to the efforts of the students and
faculty in backing up the different activities. 4
I have enjoyed being President very much and the officers of the Willard
Student Body and I wish to extend our thanks to everyone who has helped
make possible such a successful term.
