a woman in Stockholm filed suit

that her. husband forbade her to
smoke and forced her and the
children to eat only his kind of
food. "I'm all fed up with Crass,"
she explained, asking for a decree.

See The Future
The time is 1948. The place is
Madame Salome's; she is a famous
fortune teller. The crystal ball is
slowly cleraing, and we breathless
ly wait Jo see what the future
holds for the Senior Class o'f 1948.
First we see a telephone switch
board and far down the line we
see Edith Morse. She is putting
through a call for Margaret Ed
gerton, who now owns the "Edger
ton Store" on Arendell Street.
Next, we see Watts Hospital and
coming down the steps is Lukevia
Wade, the modern Florence Night
ingale. She is going to the labor
atory where Sidney Lcntz, the fa
mous scientist, is working on a
new discovery. Two other nurses
working at the hospital arc Caro
line Willis and Kathryn Swindell.
As we walk in a drug store for
a coke and newspaper, who should
be behind the counter but Mary
Allen Miller. As we look through
the newspaper several names catch
our attention. J. J3. Bennett and
Clarence Willis, the two promising
young lawyers, are now working
on their first important case. Here
on the sports page we see the fa
miliar faces of Bill Marks, the'
outstanding football star, and J.
D. Helms, the nation's No. 1 bas
ketball player. On the woman's
page is an editorial written by
Mary Sue Tenney, the journalist
who writes of life in general.
The scene now changes and we
see Grace Reel Piner, director of
a teen-age center in New York.
She is being greatly assisted by
one of the Sampson boys. We see
another large city and there is
Jimmy Rabon, the great philan
thropist of Miami Beach. Basking
on Miami Beach we see Mary Ethel
Seamon and Marianne Pate. They
are very prominent In the Miami
And who is the yellmg, ' "Pop

ter of Mrs. Grace Piner, and Tarver

at work they found this the easiest
way to earn their living. Our at
tention is suddenly attracted to the
sky where a stunt flier is showing
his daring ability. After some in
quiries we find it is our classmate,
Buddy Vick. '
Once more the scene changes to
an. opera in Paris where the fen-J
turcd star is Kitta Hugnes. Ana
who is that distinguished looking
gentleman in the second row? It
is Bill Godwin, the interpreter for
the American Ambassador to
Now ucross the Atlantic to our
beautiful country. Speaking of
beauty there's Gwen Willis and
Jeane Farrior, the school teachers,
going into Nell Walker's "Beauty
Shoppc" for shampoos and facials.
Next door to the Beauty Shoppe
is "Rose's Store" where Marian
Lewis is assistant manager.
Now for a ride in the country.
What is this, an alligator farm?
Just as we suspected, Edward
Campbell now raises baby aliga
tors! Next to Edward's farm we
find a beautiful horse farm owned
by Marietta O'Donnell.
On our ride back into town we
turn on the radio. The an
nouncer is Tarver McKnight,
taking advantage of t:?e rrccdom of
speech. Then we hear a duet by
the Eubanks sisters, Maomi and
Verona. There is then the pnnoun-
cement tljat the station has hired
two new script writers, Gloria
Guthrie and Anita Nelson. The
next commercial announces the
opening of the "L and D Drive In"
owned by Manly Lockhart and No
lan Davis. '
There is also another new estab
lishment in Morehead. It is owned
by DeElla Wade who specializes
in making gabardine suits. By the
news reports we get the impression
of another war in the near future.
That accounts for the three girls
we see standing in front of the
U. S. O. waiting for the sailors to
land. You guessed it! They are
Carolyn Ballou, Geneva Bruton,
and Norma Lewis. That takes care
of all but two members of the
class of '48. But we know that Ja
juice Lewis is still waiting 'for Joe
to finish college, and the Early
nira gets Kutn uuthrie.
