1947 SENIOR During our recent trip to the far west we stopped in the Rockies, climbed Pike's Peak for a look, and oh brother, what we sawl A diminutive man was standing beside a small telescope and calling, "Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, see three states, seven counties, and twenty-one townships for only one dime. For an extra dime, have a look into the future." Well, we just couldn't resist and so we slipped two dimes into the slot, and, presto, there it was--the whole countryside stretched out for miles. Suddenly a cloud drifted in front of the lens and when it lifted, there, right in front of the glass, was the modern city of Nappanee, with Main and Market streets much the same as they are now, but, how the stores had changed! So large and beautiful! And there on the corner was the magnificent restaurant owned .by the wealthiest woman in town, Phyllis Bennett. Across the street was the famous Milleman clinic and hospital. Jack was known the world over for his surgery. His very capable nurse and assistant was Virginia Warren. Dr. and Mrs. James Lentz were located half way up the next block. He had taken over his father's business and Phyllis was his very able office secretary. They had six children, three boys and three girls. Across the street from the Lentz oflice was the telephone building managed by Dick Stoops and wife, Peggy Lloyd Stoops. ,lane Bigler was the chief operator and Phil Price was the lineman. It was rumored that they were to be married in the spring. On the corner stood the flatfoot of the town, Chief Eugene Slagle, the brave protector of law and order. He was especially watchful for reckless seniors. Bette Strang was the head waitress at Johnsons' drug store. She married you know whom and they had two children, but she still found time to work with her husband. The school hadn't changed much but for the new superintendent, Dick Klitzke and his clerk, Pauline Wise. The new home economics teacher was Helen Messner, who was expounding the merits of biscuit making and how to sew a straight seam. Levi Tobias had succeeded Charlie Byers as agriculture teacher. The new laundry had been purchased by Bob Freet. He had built up a roaring business and was considering plans for expansion. George Malcolm and Mary Jeanette Welty had set up housekeeping on a huge dairy farm north of town. They were prospering very well with the efficient help of their husky twins. South of town we found a large muck farm under the management of Richard Rohrer who specialized in peppermint and tall corn. His wife, Norma Kuhn, was busily occupied in their ultra-modern farm home. ' Anna Lou Conderman, Marcelene May, and Pat Hare were married, of course, and were very busy keeping house and rearing children. You all know whom they married, so we wonit go into detail. The scene changed, and Washington, D. C., came into view. There in the U. S. Senate we saw Arthur Schwartz, cigar in hand, proposing a bill to increase senators' wages. Kate Hartman, his wife, was his private secretary and advisor.

CLASS PROPHECY In the House of Representatives we saw the fine gentleman from the solid south, Bill Gamble, representative from Alabama. Then New York, and the Metropolitan Opera. Owen Lemna was the leading baritone. That night the production was uRomeo and ,luliet,'7 and Owen's partner was the well known and ever popular ,loan Strauss. Next we saw Radio City, New York, and Nancy Uline was playing with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Her talent really had paid off, and we under- stood she was soon leaving for Europe for a tour! In another studio we saw June Haines and Billie ,lean Gran in their daily serial. MLife Can Be Terribleff sponsored by UNO Droop Noodle Soupf' On the next floor we found Fred Waring and his orchestra featuring the lovely voice of Doris Holaway and the romantic tenor of Wayne North. They had become quite popular and were admired by their huge radio audience. Leaving Radio City we found ourselves in a prominent lawyeris office. Behind the desk piled high with papers, we discovered none other than Dewey Eppley. Hc was well known all over New York for his record of lawsuit decisions. At Madison Square Garden we found a fight in progress. The referee was a man who could really get around for he was Benny Housouer, a small man, but one who knew his stuff. And then to Hollywood! But on the way we focused our telescope on Man- chester College where we saw Marilyn Miller as an art instructor. She had to her credit some beautiful paintings then hanging in the Chicago Artqlnstitute. Our last visit was to Hollywood where we first saw a swanky night club operated by Kenneth VValters. He was a millionaire, due to the attractions of his chorus girls, Norma Ralston, and Sally Howenstein. The club was well known for its good food, soft music, and pretty girls. The menus were arranged by Mary Ellen Middaugh, the head dietician. Around the corner was the exquisite Betty Co-Ed Style Shop owned by Donna- belle Mast, whose exclusive styles were known the world over. Just then the shutter snapped shut and our time was up. We thanked the man for a most enlightening experience and continued on our way. W. :Illlt 1 i lllllllr- ! 1' ,
