LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE By Jo The old gremlin hag rubbed her gnarled hands together, and in her thin, cracked voice, she said to me, "Very well, my child, I shall gaze into my crystal ball and read for you the future destiny of these seniors of the I944 graduating class of Pekin High." From the futures she related to me, let us take an imaginary trip and learn of what will come to pass. As I arrive in the city, I decide first to buy a newspaper. This article is obtained from that thrivg ing news company owned by Rosenberg, Johannes and Schmidt, Inc. I see on the bookstand, books of various types, by Irma Rau, Billie Jean Allen, and Joe Connelly. These people have made a place in the world I know. Glancing hur- riedly at the front page of "The Press," I scan a writeup of a new stage success, with the star, none other than Mary Jean Dimler. Down in the corner on the same page are the Court Notes. I notice that Attorney Portia Dor- man has charge of the case of Schaller versus Mattheessen. Swish! What's that as I step out into the street? Mary Han- sen, paddle in hand, is chasing her little son, Richard, who has just thrown a baseball through the window of the Guthrie and Fabry Clothing, Hardware, Drug, and Secondhand Shop, Inc. on Capitol Street. Richard, however, is lead- ing his mother a merry chase, and SENIOR EDITION Page 6 I won't wait to see who is the winnen Advancing into the night life of this teeming metropolis, we go first to the Bijou theater, where Helen Miller, the lady manager, remembering me as an old friend, gives me the choice remaining seat in the house, aisle I, row 2, seat I3I The feature attraction is en- titled "The Mysterious Marine" or "Have You Seen C. A.?" starring Melvin "Tyrone" Thompson, and Merla "Veronica" Hundt. The car- toon is one of the funniest ever seen, and I revel in amazement, another class of '44'ers made good -the animated life skit is by Eugene "Mac" McDanielsI Having enjoyed this bit of movieland, we wander over to the Tumble Inn where we find Alan Weber and his Million Dollar Music-Makers giv- ing the local yokels a thrill with his one night appearance. The man- ager, of this place of frivilous liv- ing, John Sommer, remembering me, shakes my hand, and makes me welcome. Upon checking my hat, I seem to see something familiar about the hat-check man, and then it comes to me, it's George lftner. The head waiter, Don Al- bers, shows me to the best table, and I sink into the comfortable chair, for an hour of enjoyment. The floor show has a girls' chorus, and Eilah Vogelsang, Wini Kalb, Bonnie Singley, Carol Dennis, Har- riet Walkington, are a part of them as they trip past in colorful costumes of the Latin-American countries. By this time, I am worn-out, but I resolve to stop and have a ham- burger. The nearest joint, is "Co- lette and Eddie's" "the best and biggest burgers in town" is their motto. I have just time enough to grab a bus for my destination, and I find Jack Sarff doing an able job of driving aforesaid vehicle. Finally, as I snuggle down among the blankets, sooo sleepy, I re- member, I forgot to ask the old hag what the future holds for mel
