Behind on your Mortgage
Payments?

Two other graduates are infamous
for going to prison briefly for later
misdeeds.
Wayne has worked on all of the
previous five reunions (every 10
years) for the class of '50; her statis-
tics show that about 35 percent of
the graduates became physicians or
dentists.
"I figure that close to 90 percent
of us became professional people of
some kind and that's a pretty good
achievement;' she says.

Making It Happen
}Mackie is in charge, and has spent
countless hours since last summer
working on the plans with a small
group.
"I took on the chairmanship
because no one else wanted to do it','
she says. "The whole thing is a lot
of fun!'
Wayne also devotes hours and
funds to the Israel Defense Forces
Impact! scholarship program.
The committee sent out a hold-
the-date announcement, designed,
proofread and mailed the invitation,
sought "lost" alumni, arranged for
flowers and decorations and did
publicity.
Because 450 alums attended the
50th reunion in 2000, that many
invitations were mailed this time,
"but we're realistically hoping for
around 200 people,' Wayne says.
"The class of 1949 got 150 at their
60th reunion.
"Unfortunately, 130 of our gradu-
ates are deceased, and I've heard
many sad stories about tragedies
and illnesses from people who
called me after receiving the invita-
tion. It's really heartbreaking to hear
all of these stories. Our graduates
are coming from as far as Hawaii,
and, of course, California, Florida,
New York and Ohio. But the poor
economy is keeping some others
away."
Wayne told of classmate Bill Lofton,
a Central track star of that era who
became a career Army man, reaching
the rank of colonel. After traveling
around the world also to some danger-
ous places, he retired and was killed in
a Detroit traffic accident
Committee member Marlene
Goldberg of Southfield has been trying
to get alumni to make reservations
and mail a check."One of my class-
mates told me: `What if I send a check
early, then I die before the reunion?'
