After a year's study in pipe organ music in Heidelburg, Germany, I accepted the position re-
cently vacated by Doc Whipple. When I boarded the Hotel Zeppelin, to my great surprise I recog-
nized the captain to be Kenneth Dunn. He was running a trans-Atlantic air route between Europe
and America. After arriving in New Jersey, I boarded a westward bound train for Akron. But, as I
was delayed, I went to the waiting room. Here I picked up the daily newspaper and read one of the
leading headlines, "Creston To Dedicate New Glass Court House-June 183' The speaker of the day to
be U. S. Senator Murray, accompanied by his private secretary, Margaret Gantz. I knew this would
be a great day for people in Creston and surrounding towns, so I hurried home. I was very glad to see
my parents after so long an absence.
What a crowd assembled in the spacious yard before the new structure. The ceremony began.
Lo, and behold, who did I see but Robert Elliston, the mayor, introducing the speaker. Howard
still had his oratoricai ability. During the day many faces of graduates of '36 were seen. S.nce it was
Roberts and Howards class, they announced that all 1936 graduates present should assemble in the
"Woodlette" restaurant and ballroom for an evening of entertainment. The proprietor, Kenneth Wood-
ward, welcomed all. I had the privilege of sitting beside the Hon. Dr. and Mrs. Dennison. She was
formerly Grace Grunder.
During the dinner the radio was tuned in to Cleveland. Jan Garber's orchestra played and feat-
ured the soloist-June Harris. She gave us a word over the air because she was unable to be present at
the dedication. Among the announcements of the films commentator, Mike Oxenrider, was a new picture
recently produced by Rena Feeman. She was leading producer in M. G. M. studios.
Toasts were given by the President of the Farm Bureau. Robert Weideman, and Harry Moyer.
Manager of the Cleveland Indians. I never enjoyed myself so before. I delighted in seeing what my
schoolmates had accomplished in life thus far.
Just as we were leaving, I spied my old pal who sat behind me in C. H. S. study hall, Anna Mae
Smith. She was, not to my surprise, the first woman governor in Ohio history. She said that Emer-
son, her private secretary and legal adviser, had remained in Columbus during her absence. Emerson
was still single but he still admired Dorothy. By the way, I heard that Dorothy was operating a beauty
shop on Fifth Avenue in New York. She was catering to all Wall Street aristocrats. On passing Sellers
and Cbers. I saw they were advertising a complete line of celluloid rings and trinkets which were pat-
ented by Harry Metsker. I knew Harry would make a name for himself in that line.
We passed farther down the street. Yes, Miss Bryan had risen to her great ambition. She was
proprietor of Bryan's Cut Rate Drug Store in the down town block. She had stores in Burbank, Ster-
ling, and was prospecting one in Madisonburg. These were all large towns. She had been our adviser
the last two years of our high school career. I accompanied Anna Mae to the train as she had to re-
turn to Columbus the next day for a meeting with Congress. The moment the train pulled into the depot
two gay young girls jumped off the platform. Who should they be but Ruth Jeffers and Gladys Eeich-
ler. They told me all about their private life-Ruth was a hostess in Child's Cafeteria and Gladys was
making a fortune. posing for Ipana Tooth Paste. It was late and I invited them to my home for the night.
They departed early in the morning for Baltimore, Maryland. They were going to visit Opal Hamilton, a
trained nurse in Johns Hopkins Hospital. I sent my best regards to her and we parted with a lingering
Creston and our country is better for our class having lived.
