BY MARIE BRATTQH
SECY CLASS "33
On May 29 1933 the senior
class of Abilene Christian College
met for the last time. One of
tlie last things discussed was that
each member of the June gradu-
ating class write to me within six
tnnnthft nnd tell where UlOV WCrC
and what thoy were doing.
Then I was to send in tho re-
.nrt in the Ontimlst to be printed
and sent to each member of he
class. That was original plan-
however 1 am atraia an oi me
class will not receive a copy of
the Optimist for I do not know
everyone's address. Only four of
tho thirty.six members of the
class of '33 "remembered" to
.1 in their renorts. TllOSO four
out" ... . "I" t
deserve honorable mention so l
am beginning with them and in
the order in which their reports
came to me.
V I (SnUv. Allen states that
he is one person who is glad a

he has a position with the Lone
Star Gas Company of Petrolia
Texas his homeVtown. He says
thai lie likes his work fine and

Lice Allen Armstrong seems iu
he quite homesick for our Alma
Mater and the class of '33. Dee's
chemistry really did get him some
place he has a job in the labo-
ratory of the Ozark Chemical
Chemical Company in Monahans
Texas. Dec says he is rather
lucky you wonder why? Frances
Elder is teaching school only
thirty miles from where he works
now can you guess why he is
Iva Uorris Larrum is tweivo
miles from Abilene teaching

Iva says she often wonders
where the various members of
the class of '33 are and what they
And now we come to Jack
Bates I think he gave an account
of himself "unconsciously" if
you know what I mean.
I received a Christmas card
from Jack and on the back of it
lie told what he was doing. He
is preaching for one of the con-
gregations in Santa Ana Califor-
nia. His address is 306 South
Parton Santa Anna California.
That completes the list that "re-
membered." However I wil toll
you about a few more. Those of
you whom 1 do not menuon
please do not feci slighted for
I am doing the best 1 can.

As for me I really had a lucky

the primary teacher fell and in-
