friend, Miss Marker, and our dear captains and we shall always remember,
with pleasure, these happy years. K
If as a class we have developed any very excellent traits, this year, re-
member that even a comparatively excellent class could soon positively excel,
under the superlative leadership of Captain X-sler.
Class Prophecy for Room Four
One lovely October day in 1937, Mr. Franklin Qnale, the florist, came home
from a hard day 's work. At the age of twenty-tive he had settled down to a
quiet life, perhaps, beginning with l1is marriage to Nancy Morrison. Nancy
had finished high school and then started i11 business as a shopper for Lasalle's.
She always had liked to ask questions, so here she got her chance. But after
working for a few years, she got tired and thought it would be better to let
SOIIIQ one work for her and Franklin was the lucky or perhaps unlucky man.
Upon reaching' his home, this evening, he sat down and read the evening
After reading all the sports. his chief interest, he turned to the inside of
the paper. Here a familiar name caught his eye. It was that of Mildred
Schwyn. 'tNancy," called Franklin, "please look at this. 'Mix and Mrs.
Teterbauin announce the engagement of their daughter, Mildred Schwyn to
Mr. Joseph Friend, the noted Socialist. Miss Schwyn has been proprietor of
the Fade-a-Way Beauty Shops for some time, while Mr. Friend is especially
noted for his after dinner speeches, the brevity of which, he says, is due to the
long and vigorous training of his eighth grade teacher, Miss Oechslerf lVell,
of all things!"
"One would easily have guessed that fifteen years ago," replied Nancy.
t'And glance over this!" exclaimed her husband. 'Miss Virginia Mc-
Creery has just resigned from teaching mathematics at Scott High School.
'Tis said she needs complete rest after trying to teach Freshman algebraf
Also, 'Mr. Mason Holt has invented a new kind of desk with a waste-basket
attachment on the side. This is to be used in Scott High'."
"I wish he had invented it years ago, for he always had gobs of paper and
dirt around his desk when we went to school together," re1na1'ked Nancy.
"But hurry, Franklin,'l said Nancy, "we have to get dressed. Tonight is
the fifteenth annual reunion of our eighth grade class, and we l11l1SlZl1't be late,
for no stragglers are allowed, you know."
At this remark, Franklin started up-stairs. In an hour Nancy and he were
to be seen speeding along in their car towards Stay-a-NVhile. Rebecca Lane's
tea house, on the River Road, where the reunion was to be held. Rebecca
enjoyed her tea house very much, we imagine, because here she could eat as
much cake and candy as she wanted to. I imagine that was why she chose to
Upon arriving at the Tea House, Nancy and Franklin were met by many
of the people who had been their eighth grade chums.
At this reunion to-night, there were Maxine and Helene Cosgray, noted

singers, now playing in the Keith circuit, Mary Hartman, who had written
the XGHITS best seller, entitled, "NYhy Get Marriedwg Franklin Clark, the
owner of the Toledo baseball club, which finally had a winning team, Norman
Levey, bachelor, but still as fond of the girls as ever. He always vowed he
couldn't tell which girl he liked best. So in Ol'Cl61' to keep in touch with ladies,
he opened Levey's, the biggest dressmaking establishment i11 the Middle lVest.
Others were Martha Toni, who writes a column, "More Truth Than Poetry,"
for the News-Bee, Madelyn Levi, who is in the mail order business and has
made a fortune on telling people "How to Reduceng and Mabel Kirkbride,
wife of YValter Iiinsell, who found oil on his estate in Texas and is IIONV worth
SB100,000, and now a celebrated society leader in Sylvania.
After being seated, conversation flowed briskly, question after question
being asked about absent members. Above the din, Rebecca remarked, "Mary,
what has become of Elizabeth Dougherty, she hasn't been to a reunion in
"Oh, she's a celebrated painter now, and is so busy making magazine
covers and tending her two children, that she hasn't time for reunions."
Hob, well," said snippy Nancy, "she has attained her heart's desire."
The conversation stopped awhile as every one ate, until Mabel questioned,
"Did any of you see the Fl'l6Cl11131llS Follies the other evening? You know it
was produced by Murray Friedman, our old schoolmate! Hope he has enough
girls around l1i1n now."
After this startling remark, Martha said, "Did any of you know that
Miriam Peters is at last in the movies in Hollywood? She plays vampire parts."
'tWhy, I am not a bit surprised," said Franklin Quale: "she was always
crazy about movie stars."
"NVhat has become of Lawrence Hill?" asked Franklin Clarke.
"Didn't you know that he owns a hotel in Squedunk Mountain 'T Here he
can lie around to his heart 's content, for a stranger comes to town only about
once a month," replied Rebecca.
"XVell," said Mary, thoroughly disgusted, "I should think he would have
a better place than that."
As the dessert was being served, Maxine said, "I have heard that Jane
Trost has married very well and has all the dresses she wants. She must be
"Oh, thats nothing, she always had a lot anyway," replied Helene.
Then Madelyn said, "Did you know that VVilliam McIlwain is living in
Kentucky again and is teaching History in a high school? VVon't his pupils
have fun when they take up the Civil XVar!"
'ADO any of you know what Betty Idoine is doing?" questioned Franklin
"Yes, I have heard that she is tl1e editor of the 'Ladies Home Journal',"
replied Norman. "She ought to be able to manage any kind of magazine, after
As every one was through eating, the party went out on the porch. An
embarrassing silence followed, which was soon broken when WValter said, "I
heard that Miss Oechsler has had her wish for a new Fulton School and is
still teaching there. Do you suppose she still asks, 'Why? Why? Why?' "
