Case Number VIII: Gloria Vauges (February 22nd)
This Fortyniner entered this world in Westchester, New York (You’ll notice there is a “west” in the name). She danced her way across an overland route to the Golden Poppy State and right into our little mine (Mar-Ken). Gloria is planning a career as a ballerina for which, with her talent, she is well suited. Recreation for his fellow Fortyniner is in viewing and participating in the arts. Gloria seems to be a popular choice for a secretary (she’s the secretary for the National Honor Society and the Fortyniner class), but maybe from now on she could remember to bring a pencil to meetings.
Can you imagine: Gloria Vauges never mentioning ballet?
Favorite saying: Oh my gosh
Suppressed desire: Villa on the Riviera

From the 1949 Mar-Ken Yearbook: “Guess Who”:
This girl’s main int’rest is ballet
Her folks from France but not Calais
At Senior meetings please be wary
For she is the Secretary.
