One afternoon I was lazily slumped in my favorite
chair, reading a current book. Glancing at the clock, I
noticed that the hands were moving very rapidly. My
eyes seemed drawn to them as though they were a mag-
net. Slowly pictures began to form on its face and as I
looked closer I seemed to recognize the faces. Why of
course! They were my old classmates of H.H.S. They
seemed the same, except for age.
First, I saw BETTY ANNE DURHAM at a desk in a small
clutter room. She was writing feverishly. As I glanced
at the book which I had been reading I noticed her name
on the cover. We realized that she had talent but fame
came so soon. Why, her book was outselling any book
ever before published.
Then a palatial home in Hollywood flashed before my
eyes and there was BETTY LOU RALPH looking quite
chic and stylish. As Clark Gable's seventh wife, she was
ready to run at a moment's notice.
The scene changes to a rural farm home in the heart
of Sumner County. The mailbox at the end of the drive
read john D. Scott, jr. NE'l'l'IE SUE RALPH always wanted
to be a farmer's wife.
Oh, nol lt can't be. There was ANNE JENNINGS doing
a difficult spin on ice skates in Madison Square Garden.
Sonja Henie has tough competition.
Flash! The scene changes to Marshall Field's and one
of the executive offices. SUE JOHNSON, as efficient as ever,
is head of the accounting department.
Back to Hendersonville! JO-ANN LEE is still a house-
wife only now there are more than two in the little
house on Walton Ferry Road.
The next thing I saw I could hardly believe. LEROY
RICE was sitting in his swank hotel suite being inter-
viewed by Hedda Hopper. He is with the Metropolitan
Opera Company in New York. He is currently playing
Don jose in "The Loves of Carmen."
We also find JANE RALPH in New York. Since Rise
Stevens' third marriage she has retired from the opera.
Lucky break for jane, who is now playing "Carmen."
We always knew URIE MITCHELL and E. C. GREEN were
competing with each other. They're both still married.
Now they each have a Service Station within a stone's
throw of each other. May the best man win.
Well, look who's paying inheritance taxl CHRISTINE
KENDALL is sole beneficiary of a will including a chain
of Hyder's five and ten cent stores.
Who's that with the lovely tan? Wait 'til she turns
around. My goodness, it's RAY MUNDY. junior Hunter
must still be struggling at the University of Florida for
Well, well, LOREECE CARR is a career girl now. She is a
power model for Sandy Moore Motor Company, Goodletts-
ville, Tennessee. Happy motoringl
Would you believe it, we have a frontierswoman among
us. CAROLYN HUTCHISON is teaching Home Economics
in San Antonio, Texas.
Well, what do you know! VIRGINIA LEE surely has
risen in the world. She is the wife of a wealthy planta-
tion owner down Covington way. She is at present reign-
ing as Cotton Queen.
Woodland Street Bridge doesn't sway any more. After
all HAYDON ENGLAND is the chief engineer of the Nash-
ville Bridge Company.
It's impossible, I can't believe my eyes. MATIIE JONES'
youthful dream of traveling has finally come true. She is
the first lady Ambassador to Holland.
Hendersonville is really progressing. It has a milk
company now. The sign out front reads "WILLIAM
BARBARA DIATIKAR has launched on a bookkeeping
career. I wonder if this will end in marriage as her sister's
JIIANITA BIAXEY has gone journalistic. She is now writ-
ing up all the baseball games for the "Saundersville

Concert Hall in Chicago. She was playing Schubert's
"Unfinished Symphony in B Minor." She finished and
looked up for applause. Hearing nothing she looked
Surprised, I see DOT PETTY coaching the undefeated
basketball team of H. H. S. It's the love of the sport, I'm
Then the hands of the clock slowed down and all the
faces of my classmates were gone. It had been thrilling
to look into the future, but the present is far more
