Who   is   that   man   …..   (below)
sitting  so  sedately  at  his  office  desk  ?

 ” Is  there anyone  in  the  hall  –  waiting  to  see  me ? “

–   –   –   –   –
Did you notice the 1920’s-style telephone on Mr. Upton’s desk ?
It is probably a ‘house’ phone used  to contact the boiler room and other offices.
(or  perhaps the cafeteria to order a special sandwich for lunch  ? )

A  word  from the  management  of  our  Joint Class:
We are acutely aware  that many of our members now struggle with
age and a variety of health issues.  We sympathize with each of you as
we suddenly find ourselves dealing  with  this thing called   ‘aging’
Please take good care of yourselves,  and follow your doctor’s advice,
as well as your own good  CHS common sense.  Our wish for each of you
is for healing and good health – both now and in the future.
We care about each of our members,  and their families.
Best  wishes   52  &  53   ~   throughout the year,

Special mention to our  twenty  students  who
married  twenty  from the  other  class.
(Our reason for combining  52  &  53)
.

                

Dave      and      Jan    (Oppenhuizen)    Thompson
General   Chairmen  for the Combined  CHS Class;  1952  &  1953
