Bob explained that there was a farewell party being held for Martha
and suggested that we join them. After greetings were exchanged I saw
a group around the television screen watching a wrestling match. I was
startled to see that it was Norma jean Yoder that was sitting on the other
girls' heads. They told me that she is now known as the "Battling Babe"
and is defending her championship. just as we were about to find out
who was the winner, the television set broke and left Yoder still sitting
there. Much disgusted, I started over to drag my husband from the punch
bowl. There I met Elda Gasser, married now, but never-the-less still the
head of a big candy concern called "The Sweetest Sweets Company". Elda
also told me about Wilma, who after an unhappy romance closely following
schooldays, had headed for the mountains of Wyoming and had started a
goat farm, which she hasn't left nor has a man entered in ten years.
Still by the punch bowl, I saw Harry Sonnedecker pass up the punch
and take a glass of milk. I had heard that Harry was the coach of the Creston
High School team, and made the mistake of asking him how it was going.
I found out that his team had gone to Kent this year, but was surprised to
learn that it was not the boys but the girls. After hearing about many difficult
and teachnical basketball plays, I finally got him to tell me about Merle
Beachy. After finishing school, Merle decided to take up bowling. He was
doing quite well until one night he forgot to leave go of the ball and made
a strike-with his head. He is now located in the City Hospital but the doctor
reports he is doing fine.
Chuck Allen came plodding in after the boys. When I asked him what
he had been doing with himself, he blushingly replied that he was a floor
walker in the"Ladies Lingerie Departmentuof the new O'Neils store in town.
The scream of brakes was heard outside and every one knew that Honest
Don Henderlong, the Used and Mis-used Car Dealer had arrived. He brought
with him Glenard Beyler and Bob Russell. Glenard is now a great scientist.
His las discovery was a bubble gum that can be used to patch tires, stop runs
in hose, hold up wallpaper and also comes in twenty-six different flavors.
Bob is the designer of the Russell Bussel, the only bussel with a russle.
The only sad, but yet not entirely unhappy note of the evening was the
telegram that was received from Norma Beal. After hnishing school, Norma
took up balloon flying and while she was making a flight a day or so before,
had lost control of her balloon. There was a strong wind and it blew her to
South Africa, where she claims she has found the man of her dreams. He is
an ex-sailor who landed there and has become quite wealthy.
After cabling Norma wishing her all the luck in the world, someone
asked me why I was wondering all around the country. I told them I was
taking a survey on the average number of fleas that a dog had. As the party
was getting dull anyway, they decided to help me. After chasing a dog
over most of the streets of Creston, we finallyicornered one, and counted
his fleas. So that is how my survey ended and also my story. --jean Carter
