THIRTIES '30

J.B. Lankes ’37: “Nothing exciting is going on with me. The doc is saying something about cataracts. I have trouble walking as far as a city block. I think that I should start carrying a flash card with the words ‘what say?’ so that I can carry on a normal conversation. But, I have endured 85 years of age and a lot of people ain’t. The computer age has not passed me by. I use it for documenting and cataloging. I use e-mail in genealogical work. I am no stranger to eBay and Yahoo. My yearly vacation is Elderhostel. Smith Mountain Lake in AD 2000. I keep the local newspaper humming with letters to the editor and I write articles to a local newsletter.”

Lawrence Blumenthal ’39: “In the current issue, under 40s notes, you mention a Thorne-Loomis trip. I took one in summer of 1936. I’m guessing I’m the only one still alive… Thorne-Loomis was a wonderful way to see the country. I think two second-hand Model A Ford trucks, modified for camping, were donated to the College. If you kept a diary and visited ‘industries’ on the way, you received co-op credit. We covered 11,000 miles, were gone 11 weeks, and total (Depression era) cost, including a uniform and food, was $84 each. A fine program – should be revived. Write: 1477 Landings Circle, Sarasota, FL 34231-3230.”

J.A. Haynes ’39: “My wife, Ann, and I celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary on August 20, 2000, and since it was a Sunday, we had a little special part of the service at our church.”
