The Ninety-Fourth Anniversary Reunion
On February ll, 1947, a reunion was held
at the school to celebrate the ninety-fourth
anniversary of the founding of the school.
There were about four hundred present at
this meeting. Our mailing list was very in-
complete. and many who would have at-
tended didn't learn about the meeting until
it was over. The speakers on the program
were representatives of the classes which
graduated 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years ago.
Among these were Sidney Corson 119375,
Norman C. Parker fl927j, and Alfred
Fleishman 619221. Vocal solos were given
by Charles Burmeister and Ed Nolte, a dance
number by John Berger, an accordion solo by
Wenzel Eberhardt. Mr. Weir made one of
his crisp, enjoyable speeches. We were also
favorably impressed by the new principal,
Mr. E. W. Alexander. Margaret Euerst
119411 was chairman of the program com-
At this meeting Paul Mulcahy, whose
prodigious efforts made it such a success, re-
signed as president, and Charles Cirippi was
voted in as his successor. Lucille McCann was
re-elected secretary, and Robert Wellman was
After the election, Cirippi pleaded that it
was impossible for him to take the presidency
because of his status as a busy G. I. college
student. Miss McCann also insisted on re-
signing as secretary since she is to be out of
the city this summer. At a hurry-up emer-
gency meeting the following agreed to take
over for the rest of the year:

The Nlilce Walker Dinner
Early during the winter, plans were under
way to give a testimonial dinner to Central's
most famous coach, Michael W. CMikeD
Walker, who retired last September. A com-
mittee consisting of Joseph E. Holland.
Stratford Lee Morton, Sidney Maestre. Al-
fred Eleishman, and James E. CJimmyj Con-
zelman, was selected to set the date and make
the arrangements. The Alumni Association
officers gave their full cooperation, and the
dinner was held at the Chase Hotel on March
27, 1947. It was a grand reunion attended
by many of Central's famous old grads, who
turned out in force to pay tribute to their
Alma Mater and to their beloved coach and
friend, Mike Walker. Many letters and tele-
grams poured in from those who were unable
to be present. Dozens of tributes were paid
to Mike for his gentlemanly qualities and
sportsmanship. He responded with a fine talk
that displayed his characteristic modesty and
sincerity. Talks were also made by Presi-
dent Putney of the Board of Education, Supt.
Hickey, Mr. Alexander, Mr. Ben H. Barr.
Stratford Morton, Talty O'Connor, and Wil-
lis Johnson of the Globe-Democrat. The
chicken dinner was good, too. Mr. Walker's
main suggestion was that Central should have
a magnificent new building in which to cele-
brate its 100th anniversary in 1953.
