The Senior class of nineteen hundred and eight
consists of ten members, four boys and six girlsg
and, as you see, a very bright and intelligent look-
ing class. Not wishing to tire you by telling of the
class in general, we willwgive a brief history of each.
Creston has the honor of being the birth-place
of a very precious jewel, a Pearl.
Pearl Schlegel has always lived in Creston, en-
joying its advantages, and fifty-two ways in and
out each day. When small she was a great lover of
fences, and it was one of the trials of her mother to
warn her not to climb the fences so much for fear
of breaking her neck, but Pearl would always say,
"Then I'll have the doctor slick it back on," and
kept on climbing. As she grew older she put away
her childish play and spent the time in studying.
Pearl has always been a very studious girl, perhaps
more so than any other member of her class, and
to-night can tell you all about her"LittleVictories"
in that awful Geometry, and worse yet. Virgil. She
is also a great musician and can play tlte "Robin's
Return" in a way that will make you think they
really have returned. So to-night there goes out
from the High School a very accomplished young
Harry Aby roamed the streets of Coldwell until
he found a desire to live in the city of Woodstield,
and ever since has not been able to decide which
place he likes better,Creston or Woodstieldg but has
determined to stay in Creston a few years. When
young, Harry was always very bashful and shy.
but, sorry to say, the best of people will sometimes
change their habits as they grow older. If you
wish to know whether this happened to Harry or
not, ask a fair haired Senior girl. In school he has
always been a good Latin scholar, an accomplish-
ment very rare in a boy. And he is so fond of Alge-
bra, that he intends to study it this summer.
Winona, Minn., woke up one morning to Find
that she had within her gates a great singer, for
Florence Tenney, at the age of four years, was tak-
ing a walk and singing for all her dear little life.
And on that morning, Florence also found that she
could sing. Immediately, because of Florence sing-
ing so much, trouble arose between her parents
and the neighbors. It became so interesting that
they left Winona and finally settled in Creston,
Where Florence has spent her school life. She has
such a sunny disposition that no one, no matter
how much they teased her, was ever known to make
her angry longer than five minutes at a timeg so
you see she is quite an agreeable person to have
Creston is also the birthplace of another member
of our class-Edythe jordan. Edythe, when very
young, liked nothing so much as going with one of
her gentleman friends to look at muskrattrapsg and
once upon a time, they went to look at them, little
thinking Edythe was to be the muskrat that time,
for her dainty little foot slipped, and, as a result,
she got caught in the trap. Shortly after this, she
thought she would like to be a southern lady, and
moved to Florida, where under the influence of the
sea breezes, she became a very bright childg and
when she returned in about a year, she excelled all
the rest of her old class, and is capable of telling
you tonight how to build"Monuments More Lasting
Walter Edis began his life at Olmstead Falls.
All his life, Walter has been a great talker. He be-
gan when he was only three months old, and has
kept it up so steadily that it has become a force of
habit with him. If you wish to please him, just
give him some one to talk to who does not have
much to say, but is a splendid listener. Walter is
also a good ball player, and has never been known
to return from his conquests defeated. He intends
to become very popular, and widely known in this
art as a beginner, and gradually work his way up
in the favor of the people, and, at last, become Pres-
ident ofthe United States.
Wooster, Ohio,cherishes very highly the fact
that it is the birth place of Mildred Stebbins. On
the day that Mildred first came to Creston to visit
friends, she became so charmed by a large oak tree,
under which, she said, it would be such a good
place for a play house, that she refused to leave it
until her parents promised to move here. As soon
as they arrived, Mildred began to fix up a play
house under the tree, and spent all her time there
in the summer, until she was quite advanced in
years, then she turned her thoughts upon more use-
ful things,and is now very grown in her ways, and,
as you see, a wonderful singer,with high hopes of
becoming another Madam Patti.
In a little green house in West Salem, Marjorie
Zehner was christened. Her chief characteristic is
her desire to find out what everything is made of,
as you have noticed by her subject, "Tunneling tlte
Mountains." On the day she received her first doll,
her mother's back was hardly turned before she
had grasped a hammer and pounded it all to pieces.
When asked why she did it, she said: "To see what
was inside? She has carried her desire into her
school life and as a result has accomplished much.
Howard Irvin, born at Ashland, when young,
thought he would like very much to go to a circus,
so he went in his father's arms, but when he reach-
ed the circus grounds he said: "Ol l'm afraid, I
want to go home, " and they had to take him home.
To this day, he will not go to a circus, and, I some-
times think Howard has not outgrown his fearg for,
one dark night we had a class meeting,and he rush-
ed in all out ot breath and with perspiration all ov-
er his face.
Claude, the youngest of the tribe of Edis, from
Olmstead Falls, has always had his own way, as the
youngest usually do, and it seems he shows the
effects of it in his school life. He masters his stud-
ies instead of their mastering him, as is the case
with a few others in his class fthe historian, for in-
stancel. If he is the shortest boy, he has an in-
tellect that is the envy of the class. Claude is very
quiet, and is gifted with a close observation re-
sembling Shakespeare, and intends, like him, to be
Now the last one, the historian, was born near
Ellendale, North Dakota. When young, she was
very dreamy and not overly fond of work. She
spent most of her life in Arkansas. and was never
burdened with school life until eight years old, and
then only for the three winter months. After com-
ing to Creston, however, she found out what real
school life is.
