Doris and I went to college together at Western IL University. She was a year ahead of me. We managed to get into lots of mischief. I remember how her eyes would sparkle when we were dreaming up something to do, especially if it was something we were not supposed to do. We went to Summer School together. Men's and women's dorms were kept separate but during Summer School there weren't as many students so they used one set of dorms, 2 separate towers with a connecting central area on the main floor and basement. Women had to be in by 10pm. Doris found a way through in the basement, so we routinely went in and out at will. Now, there wasn't much to do in Macomb in those days, but the thrill of being able to do it was powerful. There were 4 of us who palled around together that summer. The other 3 were all 21 but I was younger. One night we all went to a bar in town. We sat at the bar and all ordered beers. The bartender gave us the evil eye. He was sure we were all underage. He started carding at one end and went down the line. I may have been the youngest but I looked the oldest. As he went down the line, he looked at every ID. We were all getting nervous as he got to me, but he gave up and didn't check my ID. We all laughed for days after that. Doris graduated a year before I did. After college, she took a job with the Peoria school system. Her degree was in library science so she got a job as a librarian for one of the elementary schools. The kids would come in by grade levels. She would read to the younger ones and help the older ones figure out how to research things. She had an apartment on Moss Avenue, right at the top of Sheridan hill, I think. She had 2 roommates and they didn't get along. When I graduated the next year, we got an apartment together. She and I used to go out a lot until I met my husband. She met Allan about the same time and we went our separate ways, but we always kept in touch at Christmas. I will miss her.
