CLASS PROPHECY Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, this is Bill Lohstroh, your radio commentator, speaking to you from the platform located in front of the newly erected city hall, which will be dedicated to the citizens of the city of Wyoming Park, Michi- gan. The colorful parade has just begun and coming into sight from the far end of Main St. are the officials cars led by our Police Chief, Donald Herring, and his squad of fifty-six Wyoming Park policemen. Our mayor, Donald Kent DeWard, is riding in his fine Lincoln convertible driven by his chauffer, Richard Hallas. Seated on the mayorfs right is the First Lady of our fair city, LaVonne Weaver and on his left, Marie Dykstra, his faithful secretary and her assistants, Janet Dutmer and LaVerle Hall. The next official car contains our present Secretary of Defense, Kenneth Snoeyink and the Secretary of Navy, David Janousek. These two gentlemen have just arrived this morning by special plane which will Hy them back tonight for a special con- ference with our President, John Phillips, who re- grets his absence from our celebration but sends his best wishes with his wife Suzanne. Seated in the stands I just noticed Virginia Ives, the present Secretary of the Treasury. Now a spectacular sight greets us, a magnificent float, decorated and designed by the well-known artist, John Kremers. Seated on the throne of the float is the renowned Professor R. DeJonge, author of the world famous book, L'Life in A Small City," which has brought much fame to our city. Ac- companying the Professor are his body guards, Hardy Bitsema and John Raterink. In the far distance I can hear the rhythmic beat of drums, and presently the ninety-piece band under the direction of Edward Murphy, who just this morning arrived from Europe, will be filling the air with music. The band is being led by fifty majorettes enrolled at the Bonnie DeLaat School of Baton-Twirling. Joann Doty and Marlene Ahlberg, assistant instructors at the school, have left their posts in Miami, Florida to direct the majorettes this afternoon. The officials are now being wel- comed by three beautiful models, recent graduates from the Finch College of Modeling, Shirley Nel- son, Marlene Powney, and Ruth Spoelman. Viewing the grand stand we notice many special guests awaiting the dedication. Included among them are Broadway actress Jean Ford, and scientific genius Nina Kist. Also the present coach of Michi- gan Stateis tennis team, Denny Telder. The decorations and displays of the shops along Main Street certainly provide the proper setting for the parade. That quaint little dress shop owned by Joyce Rettig and Donna Kuiper has employed a famous dress designer direct from Paris, Myron Brummel, better known as Pierre. Incidentally, the well-known team of Rettig and Kuiper has recently appointed Jerry Moore and Tom Raible to manage their chain stores. Janice Perham, athletic director, of the Youth Council, has asked me to announce a dance and professional talent program to be held following the dedication. You will be entertained by the Opera Star Judy Weemhoffg Carol Rabe's All Girl Symphony Orchestra, a well known team of toe dancers, Marilyn Marsman, Arlene Pleger, Ruth Mosher, Marilyn Sharp, Pat Larabee, and Jean Cummings. These girls have just returned from a professional tour in Europe. Torch singer, Joyce Bettings, who has been touring the country, has stopped to visit us during our celebration. With her is her accompanist, Diane TenElshof. A special treat will be in store for those attending the square dance which will be held on Main Street following the dedication. Music will be furnished by Henry Elgersma and his Hillbilly band composed of Ken Smit, better known as "nimble fingersf' Cordie Schuiling and his accordian, Al Mulder and his wash board, and Morrie Gaubatz playing the piano. The callers will be Mabelle Dougherty and Phyllis Cook. Tickets are on sale at Eel's Fish Shop, under the management of Eugene Lemmink, or they may he purchased at VerStrate7s Bird Seed Shop, with Wally VerStrate as manager. I have just received word that Pat Boom will be unable to give her speech on 4'Wild Flowersf, due to an injury incurred while she was taking Physical adjustment exercises at Pat Meurs' Health Studio. While we are waiting for the dedication pro- gram to begin, I would like to introduce to you the first woman Superintendent of Schools in Wy- oming Parkis history, Miss Mollie Hoop, with her principal Miss Mary Karseboom. Wyoming is said to have two of the greatest English teachers in the history of school teaching in Michigan, Miss Eliza- beth DeYoung and Miss Dorothy Becker. As Mayor DeWard comes toward the speakers stand there is a hush over the entire crowd. The time has come for the people of Wyoming Park to give thanks for all the wonderful artistic fea- tures that went into the building of our new City Hall. This truly is a day of celebration. This is Bill Lohstroh signing off now so you may listen to the speeches of our great leaders. Again, we remind you that you are all welcome to the many shows and parades that will take place this afternoon.
