SILVER AND BLUE IW Q05 The next place of interest was the Lester Motor Corporation which was founded and directed by Hope D. Lester, the inventor of the Radio- power Limousine. Hope's success was partly due to the help of his private secretary, Miss Emmie Jor- dan. Mr. Lester said that his chief engineer, Mr. Clyde Angle, was also a great asset to his business. We at- tributed Mr. Angle's designing ability to the fact that his home was quite a geometric one as he and his Berry sweetheart, the former Madeline Bag- well, were the proud parents of six little Angles. We were convinced that there is truth in the Hindu saying, "Small men often do great things" as we found Jesse Ray Gunn in the grocery business selling a great many spuds and making no small income for him- self and his life's companion who was formerly Miss Lois Lacy. Mr. Gunn told us of the whereabouts and suc- cess of Raymond Williams, Alton Per- due, and E. C. Littlejohn. They were owners and operators of the world's greatest chain stores, which cross the continent and deal exclusively in pea- nuts and popcorn. As Mr. Shields was so greatly pleased with the attainments of these many Berry boys and girls, he decid- ed to make a tour of the world and see or find out what the other mem- bers of the class of '30 were doing. We were invited to go on this jour- ney with him. After the giant airship took her leave from the airport in Washington we stopped first in Mooresville, N. C. at the home of the Jamisons. Mr. and Mrs, Jamison were known as "Red" Jamison and "Freckles" West- brook at Berry. When at last we brought ourselves to part with the Jamisons we headed to Charlotte, N. C., but due to a burst gas line we had to make an undesired landing on a large plantation near Chesterfield, S. C. As we swooped fiercely to the ground, a small boy came toward us. As the child neared us we saw the resemblance of Grover Fitts in the child's countenance. Up- on questioning the lad, we found that he really was the son of Grover Fitts and Jack Cadle. The Fitts household entertained us and gave us a glass of cool, refreshing water to drink. We learned that Dailey Smith and J. A. Shropshire lived in the vicinity. Re- membering Dailey's handiness with tools, we sent for him to come and help fix the ship, which he could hardly do for telling us about the home he and Mary Anne Jacobs had. He told us that J. A.. Shropshire was trying to break himself of the habit of trading knives, horses, and foun- tain pens, as he had just traded Mr. McCain a lame horse for a spring colt and Elsie had immediately broken their engagement. After our ship was repaired we continued our flight to Charleston and were glad to find the Blue Goose Tea Shoppe and enjoy the wonderful hospitality of the Allen sisters, joint owners of the Shoppe. Our next hop was over to Havana, Cuba to see the world-famous Mara- thon runners compete with athletes from other countries at the Interna- tional track meet. We were greatly pleased with the records set by Messrs. Nolan Arnett and Qllie Tyree, Page Seventy

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.

SILVER AND BLUE QM .IOP We decided to visit England and some of the European countries on our next lap so we turned our heads in that direction and gladly and fear- lessly crossed the roaring Atlantic. We made our first stop in London where we were entertained by the American Ambassador, Dave Hollo- way and his beautiful wife, the form- er Minnie Smith. Mrs. Holloway told us of Claire Williams who is now re- siding in Paris and is Mme. Marcus de Paree, having married a French nobleman shortly after her gradua- tion from Berry. We decided to visit Madame Paree and while in the city of music and revelry we attended a music concert at the Parker-Mulkey music conservatory. We found to our delight J. A. Parker head violinist and J. C. Mulkey director of the or- chestra while the conservatory was founded and operated by these two accomplished young men. We found that we could make the distance from Paris to Geneva in time for the International Good Will Conference which we were so eager to attend since we knew we would find Roy Bolt chairman of the con- vention, as had been announced in the newspapers of all countries for some time. We also hoped to find others of our Berry friends there. We arrived during a speech on "What The Individual Can Do To Further Peace And Happiness Among Nations". We recognized the speak- er as Lollie Bracewell, who we later found out, was working with a board on foreign relations in Japan. Be- fore the day was over we had the pri- vilege of hearing Grady Sanders speak. Grady was engaged in religi- ous work, being pastor of the first church of Shanghai, China. He in- vited us to stop in China on our way back to America, which we gladly decided to do. While in Shanghai we saw J. D. Wallace and his wife, the former Mary Chandler. J. D. was a promi- nent undertaker in the Oriental city and the proud father of 11 little "fat" boys. Since we had been gone a month, we decided to make our way back to our homeland and one morning we found ourselves flying across the Pa- cific, and before we realized it, we were to our own America. We landed in Los Angeles and were met by the mayor of the town, who was none other than our Berry classmate, Harvey Rodgers, who had married Elvie Maxwell. After their college work was completed they had gone to California. There he had made millions in growing seedless oranges and grapefruit, and now was mayor of that great city. Mr. and Mrs. Rodgers invited us to Visit them and one day we motored out to Holly- wood. When our visit came t'o a close, we decided to end our tour by going back to our Alma Mater to see how many of our classmates had stayed to carry on the work of our schools. We found Monroe Guyton at the prow of the mighty ship with all mo- tors running as smoothly as the pur- ring of a monster kitten. Sam Mash- burn was dean of the school. Other workers and teachers were: Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Barnett. Mr. Barnett was Dean of Labor. Mrs. Barnett will be remembered as Miss Thelma Beard. Miss Geraldine Dillard, die- tician at the girls' school. Mr. Hud- Page Seventy-one
