We are now in the post-war age and everyone has prospered 100 per cent. We are privileged to come to your homes tonight from our own fireside through the medium of the two-way television and radio hook-up. I have asked all of the '43 class members to be standing by for an interview this evening. In this way we may be separated by hundreds of miles but once we communicate with each other, we will be in each other's homes on the television screen. "This is Leonard Pivonka speaking, as the master of ceremonies for the class reunion. This? reunion is not only brought about to show what our class members became, but because we of the '43 class are all proud that we have done such a splendid service to ourselves and country since we left school in '43. "As the first member I will contact Ralph Siewert. Come in Mr. Ralph Siewert,—Come in on Channel 3—Come in. "Mr. Ralph Siewert, better known as 'Schmidt'; please tell us of your doings since '43." "I am now the owner of a 700-acre airport which is used for private planes only. Incidentally, I have fifty hangars, and four planes of my own. I am also an instrutor in flying. I received my biggest experience in flying after I had enlisted in the Army during World War II and became an "Ace." "Tell us 'Schmidt', do you miss the good old days of school?" "Yes, I do, for the reason that we cannot play basketball anymore and see our class members personally. However, even though I don't see my friends personally, I see them quite often through the help of television and radio." "I want to thank you very much and give to you and your family the best regards from all the other class members." "Signing off—channel 3,—Come in channel 4, are you receiving me? Come in Lester Geisler, come in." "I am now Lester Geisler, Mayor of Derby, Michigan. I know I didn't pay attention to it while at school, but the last two mayors were crooked so I am going to give the poeple of my town a break and do all I can for them while I hold my office. Besides being a mayor, I also own a 500-acre fruit farm and a 40-acre dairy farm, and have many hired hands. I am in the best of health and still as jolly as ever. Oh yes! Got an Army and Navy "E" award for pro- ducing so much food after and during the war. I give my regards to the rest of the class." "Thank you Les and there goes to you." "Calling Shirley Ott on same channel, come in." "Hello everybody, I haven't much to say because 1 started a career of a bookkeeper and after two years was married. I now have to tend to the business of being a housewife." Page ten

...and HILL We, the graduating class of 1943, being of undetermined minds, as usual, do hereby will and bequeath the following, in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and forty-three. First, we leave to the faculty all of our merits that we so deservedly received. Second, we leave to the Juniors our reserved seats in the last rows in Study Hall. Third, we leave to the Sophomores our sincere hope that they will have funds and the gas to take their senior trip when the time arrives. Fourth, we leave to the Freshmen our good behavior habits and we hope they won't forget them during their summer vacations. Fifth, we leave to dear old Alma Mater our sincere hope that the future classes will improve in subjects and good behavior where we so poorly have left off. Individually, we bequeath our most worthy characteristics, as follows: Ralph Siewert's athletic ability to Heinz Pioske. Jane Byer's shyness to Catherin Pallas. Shirley Ott's speed in typing to Thomas Wach. Robert KubalTs technique in Jitterbugging to Jane Pivonka. Vervaine Kolberg's natural curls to Gladys Denmark. Donald RothermeTs five-by-five figure to William Faust. Stanley Geipel's tall stories and height to Gerald Totzke. Ervin Markwald’s saving ability to Carl Shulz. Virginia Totzke's interest in government classes to Doris Kettlehut. Carolyn Kolberg leaves her regrets to all the girls in S. H. S., for she's taking that senior boy with her. The Machan Twin's ability to sing to Minnie Pooch and Lorraine Ott. Richard Wiley's stature to Wayne Higgle. Lester Geisler's tardiness to Donald Siewert. Leonard Pivonka's intelligence to LeRoy Spitzer. Page nine

"Corning on the screen now is Jane Byers." "Good evening fellow class members. Ever since I started teaching at the University of Michigan, I have had very little time for myself. During my summer vacations I go to school, although 1 also spend some leisure time at my cabin resort in Canada." "We are very proud of you Jane and are very glad you reached the height of your ambition." "Now let's see, oh yes, we almost forgot that long-legged guy, Stanley Geipel. Come in Geipel." "Hello Geip. Are you still trucking on the highways or now on the dance floor?" "Hi gang! I’m still trucking, and in a big way, in fact, I have the biggest trucking company in the U. S. The business is just booming now. Now you know that I meant what I said when I told you what I wanted to be. Well, I have to leave you now, a call from Ohio concerning one of my truck garages is coming through. So long, you guys and gals!" "Well, well if it isn't Vervaine Kolberg, fancy meeting you over at Geipel's place." "Yes, you see I've been his stenographer for seven years and now I am a housewife, but I come and give Stan a help whenever one of his girls go on a vacation. You know how it is." "I understand, well from what I hear Markwald must be making very much money from Stan Geipel, for I heard that Ervin Markwald owns the Standard Oil Company of U. S. Is this true Ervin? Come in." "Yes, Len, you're right, and I must say that Stan is my steadiest and best customer. He gets his stuff pretty dam cheap, because he is also a good pal of mine, and we work on a co-operative system. He trucks my stuff, while he uses it, so its about fifty-fifty." "I think you two have a darn good idea there, it just goes to show that we are sticking together even if we aren't in school anymore. I am now calling in two opera stars. You probably know who I mean." "Hello, yes, you guessed right its us, the Machan Twins. Our dream has finally come true. We are now both in a new opera in New York City. It has been a great deal of fun getting this far and now that we are on top it's still better." "I'm glad you feel that way, and if we have some time left we all would like to hear you sing. So keep in touch with us. Well, let me see, it's hard to remember everyone, here's one and he's a big one in aviation, although he's small in stature—Robert Kuball." "Hello Kids!! I like to call you all 'kids' cause it makes us all feel younger you know just like in school. I am now an aeronautical engineer in the biggest plane factory in the world, like my job and I'm happy to be what I am." "Bob, if it weren't for you America would never be where it is in aviation. We thank you greatly for it." Page eleven
