THE CUCKOO 17
LAURENCE B. FORD.
Football (2); Basketball; Track (1); Boys’ Glee Club.
“Buddie” is the exact contradiction of the maxim, “Laugh and grow fat.”
If “Bud” had only had one year more at school he would no doubt he the star center of our basketball team.
Ethel came into our class quite late, but not too late to captivate charming “Lew.” Ethel has broken all records of speed in talking.
RUTH BICKING, ’19.
Never again, will I eat the combination of sour pickles and chocolate ice cream, at least not before retiring. I did that very thing last night, and as a result, I had a most peculiar dream.
I fancied the time to he the year of 1930. I was traveling from coast to coast in my aeroplane, and incidently met some of my former classmates of D. H. S.
Before I had reached the outskirts of New York City, I saw, through my telescope, a crowd gathered around two men. Their faces were blackened, and with them was a monkey fastened on a cord to a hand organ When I reached the earth, I found to my amazement that the two comedians were none other than Gordon Carpenter and Charles Fernald. Gordon was entertaining the crowd with his singing. This is not surprising, as his voice seemed promising when he i was in High School. Charles was playing the hand organ, while the i monkey was taking up a collection.
I did not take time to talk with them, as I had a long journey before me.
I did not stop again until I reached j Philadelphia. There I met Mary Smedley, who had spent several years in Paris, and was teaching French in a High School. She told me facts concerning herself and several others, j with whom she corresponded.
Marie Swreeney, who had taken up nursing, had changed her profession. Since chemistry had always been her favorite study, she had become a
chemistry teacher in Central High School, Chicago.
Ethel Dague had become a perfect model for displaying cloaks at Goldsmith and Bloomstein, an exclusive New York firm.
William Barrett, who had received several degrees at college, had at last reached the lofty position of president of a university in Wisconsin.
Although I was anxious to reach Downingtown, I made a flying trip to Washington. There, I saw a tall young lady wearing glasses. She was expostulating with several men on the proper methods for running the Government. Yes,-’twas Anna Hallman.
From there I made my way to the old home town, and. upon my arrival, I was glad to learn that some of my classmates had not strayed away.
I entered a very up-to-date drug store and found the proprietor to be Wilmer Dolbey. He had purchased the building from Mr. Sharp, several years before, and was successfully carrying on the business.
While I was there, I read “The Downingtown Archive.” Under “Personals” I found some very interesting items.
The first was:
“The Board of Directors of the Brooks Home for Old Women has taken final action on the application of Lowell H. Fisher, and has elected him to fill the position as caretaker of the institution.”
Farther down the column. I read: “Selda Dietz, the renowned opera
