Interesting class news! I have a current list of our class members, and there are 61 of us still alive. Pretty good considering we are approaching, or are, age 90! More than 200 of us entered in September 1940. * Colby’s new campus is magnificent. Back when we attended, the school was down by the Kennebec River, and the future campus had just the shells of two buildings on the hill. Professor Richard Lougee, head of the Geology Department, painted a bleak future for the College’s survival up on the hill. He was sure the topography was unsuitable! Time has proven him wrong. * In May I attended a gathering of former choristers celebrating the retirement of Paul Machlin, professor of music for 38 years. My only qualification was that I sang in the Glee Club as a freshman and sophomore. The big event was the presentation of the Creation by Haydn. Some singers came from out of state, and the professor was delighted. I knew no one, but we soon got acquainted. I told them about practices that music director John Thomas held in the basement of the alumnae building behind the old Foss Hall downtown. Our sophomore year at Christmastime we took the train to Portland, where we joined with the Bowdoin Glee Club (all boys), Colby Junior College (all girls), and the Portland Symphony Orchestra in the large auditorium in Portland City Hall (with the spectacular organ) and presented the Messiah to a full house. Glorious experience. When we went outdoors afterwards there were newsboys shouting the latest headline—Pearl Harbor had been bombed. It was Dec. 7, 1941. Our world was never the same.
