575' I-l..ll..'l':N gig
Toledo, I am staying at the "New Secorf' I have taken up the study of
nature and enjoy, it very much. I have many wild birds and animals
and I intend to go into the study further. By the way, who is this Myrtle
Hansenette ?" I asked.
"She formerly was Mary Louise Hansen. NVhy!" she exclaimed, "she
was your best friend at school!"
"Oh! Is that really Mary Louise? Vtihen I came back from Long Island
I could not find her here so I thought she had moved somewhere else. I never
dreamed she would keep up her dancing so long, I thought it was just a
"Hurry," Beatrice said, "we don't want to miss the music."
XVe both laughed as we quickened our steps.
YVe did not realize that we were noisy, but, as we were entering the
theatre, a policeman whom we at once recognized as Carolus Sheffield, stepped
up to us and whispered, "Have-n't you heard the order that there shall be no
loud talking or noises on or in the public places and streets of Toledo? Mayor
Richard Stophlet is endeavoring to make this city more thoughtful and digni-
fied, and giggling and loud talking are not allowed in public. Fulton School
has the honor of giving to Toledo the best mayor it has ever had. Mr. Esmond
McCliesh, the inventor, has suggested putting rubber tires 011 the street cars."
"I am sorry, sir, but we didn't know about it. I never read the papers
but I am sure it will not happen again," I gasped.
As we turned away I said, "Weill 'Weill You know Richard used to be
the President of our class in the eighth grade. Little did we know then that he
would become Mayor of our city, and such a dignified one, too."
We entered the theatre, and a young usher stepped up to us and said,
"Tickets, please." As Beatrice handed him the tickets, I noticed a smile cross
his face and I asked, "Who is that usher?"
"Oh, that's Stanford Treuhaft, and there's Garth Morris in tl1e other
aisle, rushing around as usual."
It did not seem very strange to see them as ushers because they used to
like the aisles so well at school.
We were soon seated in our box and I turned around to observe the aud-
ience. A familiar face next to us caught my eye.
"Who is that gentleman?l' I turned to Beatrice and asked.
"Why, that's Russell Davis."
"Good afternoon, Miss Didham and Miss Brewster," said he, recognizing
us at once," have you come to see my wife dance?"
"Your wife!" I exclaimed.
Mr. Davis laughed and replied, "Yes, we were married two years ago."
The music started and the curtain rose and revealed a very dignified
looking young man. Another man stepped out and said, "Ladies and gentle-
men, we have with us this afternoon, Mr. Shelby Morrison, who will now speak
upon the "Exasperating Interference of Radio with Our Aerial Mail Service,"
"Mr, Morrison, please step forward." .
"Why!" exclaimed Mr. Davis, "If that isn't Shelby Morrison, who used
to be in the eighth grade with us,"

Prophecy for Room Twenty
To "Nineteen-Thirty" and Back
XVhat a wonderful feeling it is to sit back in a cozy chair while the May
breezes blow in from the open window. To be sure it is not very often that a
young woman of twenty-four has ti111e for this sort of thing, but, as I had
nothing else to do, I sat gazing out of the open window. All of a sudden an
inspiration seized me and jumping to my feet, I took my hat and coat and
Went out into the beautiful May sunlight for a walk. Walking swiftly along
the street, I saw a tall girl about my own age, approaching ine.
"1 wonder who that is?" I said to myself: "I recognize her face but I can
not place her. "
As she passed me, I accidently stepped upon her long lace train, a late
"Oh, pardon me!" I said.
"VVell!" exclaimed the girl," "If it isn't Barbara Brewster!"
"Why, Beatrice Didhan1," I said, "I did not recognize you at first. Where
are you going this beautiful day?"
"Oh, I was just taking a walk," answered Beatrice. "NVon't you come
with me? I am going to Keith 's to see Pavlowa II or Myrtle Hansenette."
"I'd love to," I answered.
"You see," replied Beatrice, "I have two tickets for the box. A friend
was going with me, but at the last minute she phoned me that she was ill.
Where are you living now?"
"I live on Long Island, where I have my Nature Study studio. VVhile in

HI always thought," replied Beatrice, "that he would become some kind
of an orator. Do you remember the way he used to recite his lessons in school?"
The talk must have been very strong and interesting, for it was applauded
greatlyg but, unfortunately, neither Beatrice nor I had a dictionary so we lost
,many of the important points.
After this number came a motion picture starring Virginia Durbin. She
was a new star and everyone watehed her, eagerly.
"Her face looks familiar," I said.
"Yes," replied Beatrice, "she was Ethel tfolegroye. I haven 't heard from
her since she entered the movies."
"I saw her husband, Harold Vtlaltz, about three weeks ago. He's a busi-
ness man with headquarters in California."
I was going to ask what business, but the play became very interesting
at this point and I forgot about it.
Next came a musical hit, "Apple Blossoms," featuring Miss Margaret
Danner at the piano, and Miss Esther Farber, voice soloist, while the great
dancing 1naste1', Mr. Martin Raley and his partner, Miss Dorothy Riess, gave
many fancy dances.
Much grace and skill were expressed by these great artists whom we
recognized at first sight.
'tMy!l' VVhat time will do," observed Beatrice.
"Yes, we never realized that our classmates could ever become such won-
de1'ful people," I replied.
Now came a new and unexpected thrill.
The curtain rose slowly upon what seemed a field of ice and snow. The
scene was very realistic and everyone gasped as a pair with skis fastened to
their feet came into view. They climbed up to the top of the hill in the center
of the stage, posed for a moment while the audience went wild with exeitea
ment. A whist.le was blown and away they went swiftly down the icy hill and
down into the audience. Up, up, up, they went through space into the highest
gallery which was reserved for this purpose. The people craned their necks
to get a better look at the skillful pair, who proved to be Virginia Camp and
The last and most interesting event of the afternoon was a group of dances
by Pavlowa II. She was very charming, and showed much skill in all her
Your wife, Maryetta, certainly showed talent,'5 I said, turning to Mr.
Davis. "I should be delighted to have both of you come to tea some after-
noon before I return to Long Islandfl
"Thank you, very much,'7 answered Mr. Davis, "I should be delighted to
and I assure you my wife would too."
We said good-bye and Beatrice and I started for a door. As we reached
the street, we noticed a large crowd standing in front of the theatre. We drew
near and to our surprise saw, in the center of the crowd, a tall and handsome
young man of about twenty-five. His large blue eyes were shining with ex-
citement. It was no other than Harold XValtz.
"Ladies and gentlemen," he said, "I have in my hand the most wonderful
gum ever made. It is called 'The Chewless GHIII., No energy is required to
