'l W t l l 1 3 l 4, PAGE 18 Class History. By Charlotte Troutman. 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 lady. 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 around. 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 Than Marble." 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 a poet. 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.
