To Mary Jo Cravens Schaefers:
  I, too, have thought of our exchanges students of the 1951-52 school year from time to time. It would be interesting to see how their lives developed when they returned after a year in the U.S. Having worked with exchange students over my years counseling at the high school level it was always an interesting experience for me, and I believe it was a good experience for them to attend an American school. I even had the opportunity to meet with a couple of former students and their family when we did a Far East tour that involved Bangkok, Thailand.

  I just read the latest from Irma [Kulp Zacher]. It brought to mind that I have been try to find a recipe that Linda Goulet gave me years ago. I have used it often but in moving about have lost it.
  Linda, if you are out there will you please send the Apple Butter recipe? I remember the 16 cups of applesauce, 8 cups white sugar, 1 cup (?) of Apple Cider Vinegar and cinnamon. The amount of cinnamon and if there were any other spices escapes me. Mix it all together then pour it into two pans in the oven for 3(?) hours at 250 degrees, stirring occasionally. Put is jars, tighten lids and invert. No processing. It is great. Hope this finds you, Linda.

From: John Goulet (`59)

Dear Classmates:
  First, bonjour from Chalon-sur-Saone France to my sister Marion Mann (Goulet) in Togo, Africa. Sounds like you're having a great adventure. How's the French coming? I promise to write soon.

  Second, a warm hello to Julie Hensley. Do you remember us sitting in the back of Mr. Seibert's English Comp class with Cheryl Miller? We sure had fun. Do you ever hear from Cheryl? I wonder what ever became of Mr. Seibert.

  Third, all of this reminiscing about paper routes reminds me of my brief stint as a paperboy. I remember those cold mornings the year we lived with my Grandma Collins on 8th Street (1952 I think). I slept all winter in a bed on her back porch (summer porch), under a down-filled comforter. I would get up about 4:00 am each morning to deliver the Oregonian to the downtown newsstands and establishments (remember the days when newspapers were sold on the honor system?) I would meet the train at the Pasco Train Depot, collect my bundle of newspapers as they were tossed from the mail car, and load them onto my bike. I had a black and chrome Schwinn with "knee-action" front suspension. It was my pride and joy. It had knobby tires, an electric horn and headlight (sealed beam), and an electric taillight. I remember fabricating tire chains out of leather shoelaces and fixture chain to help get through the snow and ice. I'd load it down with 50-60 copies of the Oregonian and head up Lewis Street. First to Eddie's Cafe, the Post Office, the Top Hat, and then on to the Lewis and the Pasco hotels. The streets would be completely empty at that hour (except for an occasional drunk). I'd end up at the Spudnut shop about 5:00 am and wait for the first hot Spudnut out of the fryer. Then, back to bed for a few more winks before heading off to school at Captain Grey.

  Lastly, Linda (Nagley `60) and I are becoming accustomed to our new assignment in France where we are living for the next few years (until retirement I hope). Our home is in a small mountain village overlooking the vineyards in the Burgundy region of France. The area is famous for its wines and gastronomical creations. I work for a French company, Framatome ANP, which designs, builds, services, and fuels nuclear reactors around the world. I am overseeing the quality of fabrication of replacement steam generators and reactor vessel covers for U.S. nuclear utilities. We are enjoying a much slower pace of life here in France compared to our previous assignment in the Chicago area. Our biggest challenge is to learn the French language. I'm trying and disprove the old adage that you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Occasionally some of those phrases learned in Mrs. Olds first-year French class come bubbling back into my consciousness. We're having our motor home shipped over in October and hope to spend as time as possible seeing the sights of Europe.

  We do enjoy being reunited with old friends through this site and welcome the chance to read anything in English. Thanks to Paul Case for his efforts to make this site a success.

Bonjour,

  Thanks to Irma Kulp Zacher for the update about Mel Hendrickson, Jr. For those of us who live away, we so rarely hear when people we grew up with are no longer with us. I wasn't aware that Bunky was gone as well. I shall miss them very much.
  I think Russell (The Sheriff) Hendrickson graduated about `65 with Sandy Arbogast. Maybe she'll ring in and give us the correct year.
  As for Ron's grandchildren, I can remember when he and first wife Linda, laid their very darling newborn little girl on one of our beds at my sister Sally's wedding reception. Of course, that's back when we were all on the runway of LIFE. And a great ride it has been!
