Class Prophecy Ladies and Gentlemen : In an effort to predict' where the members of the class of 1956 wlll be ln ten years, we go to California where l am working as an airline receptionist. 'I have just met an old classmate, Deanna Center, who ls a private secretary in one of Cal1fornia's newest and largest enterprises. Dee invited me for lunch at her apartment. As we were eating we watched the news broadcasts on television. Prom New York City the news of the day was the docking of the S. S. Snooty. Coming down the gangplank are Iames Curtis, renowned authority on the duckblll platypus, and Carole Nelson a reglstered nurse, carrying a large glass case of ----- , well I can't see now because Stuart Draper ls right up front taking pictures for the Wllton Journal. Stuart has moved now and we see two more of our former classmates coming down the gangplank. They are Gerald Gallant, world heavyweight boxlng champion and his able manager Kevin Fox. 'They are returning from a world tour. From Washington D. C. Nancy Small, soclety's gossip columnlst reports that Senator Robert Hatch of New Hampshire has been seen at a large number of soclal gatherings with that 'popular new woman senator from Maine. Richard McQuade is also ln the news. He is now an admiral ln the United States Navy. His shlp was in mld-Atlantic when the boiler blew a large hole port side of the ship. It was rolling on its side and sinking slowly as Douglas Brown and Carl Kiellg made a heroic rescue. We now flash back to Hollywood where there is a price cutting war going on between two beauty parlor operators. Betty Tlghe and Donna Starkweather. In an effort to out-do her competitor Donna has engaged Patricia Parsons as manlcurist. The commercial ls next ln llne. A new magazine which is out selling Esquire is being advertised. There may be two reasons why this magazine is selling so well. One is that Edward Martin ls the editor and the second is that the cover illustrations are by Kathryn LaCasse. The sports commentator flashes on the screen next with his sports of the day. Basketball Man of the Year is Dan Mahoney coach of Wilton High School. Dan led the Wilton team down comeback road tg the championship of New Hampshire and had an undefeated season along the way. Now that the news was over Dee shut off the television so we could have a chance to talk. The conversation immediately started by my asking Dee if she had heard that another of our former classmates, Ernest Waters had also been in the news. She replied that she hadn't so l told her that Ernie had recently been test driving General Motors' turbine-powered Firebirds. I had heard that a new recording star was making a big hit ln New York Clty. I wondered if this could possible be one of the graduates of Wilton Hlgh School's class of '56., Upon inquiring I found that the Star was Martha McGrath. Dee told me that Martha had just recelved a gold record, for her recording had sold over one mlllion copies. g She went on to say that two more of our former classmates were employed by Inter- national Harvester. They are Arthur Fulgoni who is a big executive and Blanche Hadley who ls Arthur's private secretary. She also added that Marjorie Burbee had been chosen "Secretary of the Year" and Harriet Iarest "Typist of the Year" by the Dlctaphone Corporation. Now we've seen all our classmates in the news and everyone has been very successful. , Of course this has only been in my imagination, but it's fun to imagine and when all our classmates gather at the class reunion fifteen years from now we'll see how nearly right I was ln thls prophecy. 'Tonight We Launch, Where Shall We Anchor.
