I 1946 ANNUAL 1
"U T 0 P 1 AH:
Ah, yes. How pleasant it is to go to school. From the moment we students arrive
until the time we go home at night the day is just one happy celebration.
Let me take you on a tour over the happenings of an average day at Creston
High School. School, of course, doesn't start until 10:00. This is very nice since
most schools begin classes at 9:00, but not unusual since every effort is made to
give the students all the comforts of home.
Everyone leisurely files into the study hall. They have quiet conversations
with their friends. There is no rowdy acting or talking, no candy or eraser throwing,
no sly winks and nudges as a girl promenades up to visit the handsome, funfloving,
intelligent and indulging teacher. Every single person is on his best behavior.
Then we are summoned to our classes by a record, playing one of the most
popular pieces made by a popular singer of the day. It really is a treat to go to
class when called in this way.
Joy of joys! The teacher upon arriving in class, politely greets the class with a
cheery smile and then starts the day off right by telling us of an amusing incident or
joke he or she had heard. All the laughter comes straight from the heart - not a
bit forecd as it is sometimes apt to be.
The class having been called to order, lessons begin. Many times they are spoken
of with distaste but in Creston every book opened is a source of knowledge and
pleasure. You see, we study only movie magazines, Seventeen, comic strips, and
Popular Mechanics. Don't worry about what we learn because I assure you the
students of Creston are very learned and wellfdeveloped, mentally.
In half an hour the record begins again and class is dismissed. Before leaving,
however, we receive our pay for that class. Although not very much, it greatly
reduces the expense of the teacher's candy bill, as we are all allowed to sustain our
hunger until the noon hour by partaking of some sweet morsel.
Cur morning classes over at 11:30, we quietly collect our wraps or go down
to the cafeteria, as the case might be. Those going home to lunch -are given plenty
of time, and are taken to and from school in red and black station wagons. Those
eating in the cafeteria have special booths and are served by paid waitresses. Anything
which a person wants to eat can be found in our cafeteria.
After coming back to school at 1:30, our afternoon classes are much the same
as the morning except that they are only gym classes, music, assembly, or special
activity periods. We have only the best teachers and the best conditions of health.
No one ever skips school, we have no detention hall, and there has never been a
failure or F given in the history of our fair school.
A 3 :00 we leave for home in the station wagons. They stop wherever we want
and take us as far as we like.
Then we reminisce over the day's happenings. We think of how nice the teachers
were when they said goodfbye and invited us to come again soon. Ah, yes. It's
pleasant to go to school. If you don't think the things I've said are true, I shall
conduct you personally on a tour of our institution of learning.
