"MY IDEAL WIFE" '
If the woman whom I marry turns out to be my ideal wife, she will not be ten years
older than me. I can't go much for length, because I am pretty short myself. She will
have a magnolius complection and hair to match. She will be willing to work when the
financial need calls for it. She will do the arguing for me, because any woman is posted
on any subject, or at least it appears that way. She will love, obey and support me.
We studie English Literatur,
Not to lern how to spelg
But to get some beter ideas
About Heaven and of-wel,
The things people usta do,
And how they used their grammar to.
Take for instance the finest thots
That hav ben put in verse,
The Author seemed to murmur: "Whats
The way to spel this wurse?"
That's the way all authors do
So yhy can't me and you?
Now Shakespeare wrote a Iota stuff
That has undying fame,
But Shakespeare didn't know enuf
To writely spel his nam
And Shakespeare was a faimous man
Why can't we be the saim?
Take old Giff Chosser-he who gave
Good poesy its start
Accordin to the way he spels
He couldn't hav ben so smart.
If we all speled like him, we'd
Give our teachers quite a start.
And so lets spel in off hand stile
Just as we go along
And naturally most all the time
We'l1 get our speling rong,
And then we'll all bee faimous
In word and poem and song.
PARENT-TEACHERS BANQUET GREAT SUCCESS
A banquet was held at the Creston School on the evening of February sixth. The
ladies of the town, assisted by some of the accomplished cooks ot C. H. S., served a de-
licious meal, after which a boy's basketball game entertained. This game was followed
by a girls' mock basketball game. As soon as the games were over, nearly all gathered
in the auditorium for a short program, which under the excellent directorship of Miss
Brlllhart, was very flue. The program consisted of a play and two readings, one by
Miss Daisie Fullerton, and the other by Miss Brillhart, who gave "The Meechin Ro-
mance." The program over, everyone depaxted for their homes, concluding that the
evening had been well spent.
SHAKESPEARIAN READER ENTERTAINS

On Sept. 12, '24, A. M., teams were selected for the "Pole Rush" and "Tug of War",
to be held in the P. M. of the same day. The "Green and White" with the "Old Rose and
Black" took the honors of the day. They barely won the first period of the "Tug of War,"
but the second was a plain walk-away. The first period of the Pole Rush, the "Purple
and Gold" with the "Scarlet and Gray" were put up with Freshmen and Juniors defend-
ing the pole-But thanks to the Senior and Sophomore husky lads, Warren Knepp or
"Snapper", went up the pole and handed down the enemy's colors. Honors to the Se-
niors and Sophomores for the first period. At the beginning of the second period, the
"Old Rose and Black" and the "Green and White" were put up with the Sophomores
and Seniors defending. These fellows are sure some defenders, for not one man on
the opposing side could climb the pole three feet before they were haul-
ed down. Honors to the Seniors and Sophs! !! These colors still being up, the Seniors
and Sophs defended the pole for the third and last period. After some rough scrapping,
Nelson' Glessner fBillyJ went up that pole like a cat and down came the proud "Green
and White" - "Old Rose and Black." But Seniors and Sophs were sports enough to
give their so far defeated opponents the credit due them for their last struggling effort.
Never.the-less, the Seniors and Sophs had seventy-five points out of one hundred for the
Pole Rush. Those fellows can fight! !! Those girls can yell!!!

Show. Th main feature was "Boy of Mine," with Ben Alexander in the title role.
Special musxc was provided for the pleasure of the audience. Alan Romich, DeVere

phone solo and Alan Romich a violin solo. "The Senior Warblersj' in other words,
Dorothy Knepp, Daisie Fullerton, Emmett Adams and Earle Long, sang "Boy of Mine',,
a song that goes hand in hand with the movie which was being shown. The financial
result of this show was quite satisfactory. Aproxirnately 175 tickets were sold in ad-
vance, and almost that many at the door. The class made 527.90 on this one night.

gles of Red Gap," was the feature this time. Mr. D. D. Pfouts played the piano during

March twenty-third. Margaret Winters played the piano for the evening. Between the
comedy, "Pardon My Glove," and the feature, Earl Metz thanked the audience in behalf
of the Class for their support and introduced Sam and Bill in "Safety Razors First."
Earle Long and Lee Marshall did very well as black face comedians. During the first in-
termission in the feature, Daisie Fullerton gave a reading, "Cold." The Class cleared
815.00 at this last show. Altogether they made 357.55 which will help them a great deal
in editing the Year Book. Daisle

Auditorium on May seventeenth. His topic was, "Knights of a New Day." Prayer and
Scripture by Rev. W. A. Sears. Music was rendered by members of the M. E. church
and the Presbyterian church.

penter, Salutatoriang Earle Long, Historian and Prophetg Earl Metz, Orator. Music was
