The plane which had so laboriously thrust itself through the ethereal heavens carrying Com- mander Shields and his company to victory was equipped with a platinum propeller, which had been a gift to the famous aviator by the Lundy Thompson Platinum Corporation. At the conclusion of the unveil- ing program, we slowly plodded and rounded our way through the crowd, until we were in reach of the "one time insignificient Berry student that had put the child of destiny to shame." Of course, "Sifus" rec, ognized us and immediately inquired the whereabouts of our former class- mates. Just then a telegram was rushed to Mr. Shields stating that the president-elect, Mr Winifred Moore, Page Sixty-eight

SILVER AND BLUE '-'Bl and his lovely wife, Miss Elena Step- hens were giving a luncheon at the Max Landrum Hotel in honor of the great discoverer. It so happened that we were invited to the luncheon also. President-elect Moore gave us a great surprise when he told us that practically his entire cabinet was of the world's best men and women- Berry men and women-and best of all from the class of '30, They were as follows: Lemuel Tankersley, Sec. of State, as all of us know that Mr. Tankersley was a fond admirer of fair sex, we were not surprised to find his home practically managed by the warm heart and generous words of Laura Newsome. Jesse Maxwell, Sec. of War, but it is doubtful will do much fighting as he is the husband of our ever cher- ished Myrteen Campbell. Felton Swilling, Sec. of Navy. Fel- ton is a bachelor since Mary Low- man, the world famous aviatrix, has never said the small, but ever so significant word "yes". Terrell Lowery, Sec. of Treasury. It is a comfort to know that "Ned" assisted by his competent wife, Lil- lian Bruce, will have charge of our country's finance. Clyde Blackstock, Sec. of Labor. Even though Clyde was said to be the laziest boy that ever attended Berry, he is to fill the office of sec. of Labor, and will comfortly provide for his wife, formerly Miss Ruth Frix. Sec. of Interior, John Coats. Tho- ugh John says that most of his work is of exterior variety, he will not refuse the place. Lawrence Barnett, Sec. of Euca- tion. We were greatly chagrined to -IN find that Lawrence was to fill such an exacting position, but was some- what relieved to find that he is to be assisted by his capable wife, the former Mary Gay. Ranzy Jones, Postmaster General. Little Ranzy always wanted to be a general in the army, but now he is doubled general as he is filling the responsible position as Postmaster General and his Wife the former Miss Thelma Cochran forces him to be general of her and their boys. Clyde Gailey, Sec. of Agriculture. Most of Clyde's time is taken up by playing with Goldiesmith as he calls the small golden haired girl of which he and Ruby Smith Gailey are the parents. Burton Stephens, Attorney Gen- eral. In Burton's college work a great stress was placed on the value of forceful argument, and we noticed that he had at last persuaded Fleda Ballenger to give up her perfectly good nome for that of Stephens. George Collier, Sec. of Commerce. George finds that his persuasive t'alk which he developed while selling books is of great help to him in dis- positions of our commerce. We were quiet confident that Mr. Moore's carefully selected cabinet would be a most wise and prudent group. After the luncheon we decided to visit our former classmates who had taken up their abode in the Federal C'ity. We were motoring down Pennsylvania Avenue when we saw a most colorful sign, "Moody-Prater Dancing School." A unique act was being taught by Misses Mildred Moody, Maybelle Prater and Mary Mooney.
