I see by my crystal ball that June 3, 1975, will be a great day for the Class of 1959. Would you like a peek?
Dimpled master-of-ceremonies, Gary Buhr, steps dramatically to the edge of the stage and confides, "This is YOUR life, Pugger Christensen." Doug stumbles humbly to the front of the large auditorium. Soon we will begin meeting characters from the past of Douglas Christensen, Dean of Dennis Priebe’s Home for Delinquent Girls. After a short announcement from Tronrud Brothers' Maple Syrup, sponsor of This Is Your Life, Patty Paulson sings Pugger's favorite song, "When the Moon Comes Over the Brewery."
Joyce Mucciacciaro struts out with the album containing snapshots from Pugger's past. Gary opens it to the first page where we see the grinning countenances of our guest's best buddies when he was in high school. Bud Breslin is now head of the WIAA. Dennis Priebe is fulfilling his life's ambition and is in partnership with Doug.
Director Dave Benson tells the camera man, Rev. Marvin D. Johnson, to focus on some of Doug's relatives who are standing at the right of the stage. They were flown here by Arlene Clark airlines. Incidentally, David, who got the job as director because of his part as stage manager in the class plays, spends every nickel he earns trying to feed his 23 children. The relatives on the screen now are Virginia Christensen, the notorious divorcee of nightclub fame; Jo Witthoft, chief cook and bottle washer at the Priebe Home; and Jack Witthoft, consulting psychologist, whose main patient is the cook at the establishment, is another member of the Priebe staff. With them is Jeanette DeTar, another member of the staff. She heads the Medical Bureau.
Doug’s smile fades as the one patient he couldn't save appears up left, Lucille Cress. She is supported by bartender Dwayne Dzubay, and bar fly, Maureen Smith. Lately, Carmen Smith, the toughest old bird in the army, has been trying to get her to enlist. The Major feels that army disciplining may do the trick.
Renaldo Leno, leading tenor at the Metropolitan, and his guitarist, Larry Reindahl, are abroad. The rest of Doug's graduating class is in the audience, except for matinee idol, Gene Burns, who was hospitalized following an attack by one of his more exuberant fans, housewife Marilyn Paulson. She wanted a lock of his hair.
In the front row is oil-man, John Barthman. He is the richest man present. Next to him is the girl the Class of 1959 voted most likely to succeed, Dianne Sommerfeldt. She did. Her children occupy the rest of the front row. In the second row is rancher Elroy Minor in his ten-gallon hat. Trying to see around it is librarian, Shelby Lillie. At her right are the heads of the largest maple-syrup producing corporation in the world, Larry and Harold Tronrud. With them are model. Carolyn Kuhn, and songstress, Patty Paulson, both of whom get around. They are the only members of the class who can afford such good seats on a night such as this one.
From the balcony we hear the voices of Gene Pittman and Yvonne Martin who are still fighting. The two socialties, Jan Helium and Marlys Logan, are here and fairly dripping with jewels. They are watching the curtained box across from them where Donald Hemauer, the President of the United States, sits with his advisor, Jim Cress. They have come tonight to see Pugger and their old friends from Clear Lake. Georgian and Lois are here, naturally. On their world tour, they miss an event only when it occurs at the same time something more important is happening. Gangster Norman Clapsaddle is here under guard of his gun molls, Helen Wright and Lois Orner. Little does he know that private eyeball, Lynn Gale, is watching him. I'll bet there is going to be some excitement, but the illusion is fading, and we have not yet seen all of our old classmates. They all live in Clear Lake yet. Delmar Emerson has the first 2 minute-12 second car wash in the state. Eileen and Bonnie have opened a beauty shop next door for ladies who forget and go through Delmar's without putting up the tops of their convertibles. Mary Gilbertson and Janet Locke (nee Rothe) are leading the ladies' club with 6 children apiece. Last but not least, Catherine Mara has disproved an ancient theory and is now a cowboy. 1 guess we'll just have to wait until our next class reunion to see if the rest of our prophecy is true.
