so, because he didn't recognize me, but after I introduced myself we were very
good friends. I asked him what was keeping him busy. He said after going through
college he decided to be a teacher and was now teaching at Creston, Still thinking
that he might have gotten married, I asked if he had and sure enough he had a
wife and to my surprise three little Markos.
While speaking with Bill, Stanley Miller came into my mind because he always
was with Bill during our school days. I learned Stanley had built his fathers' farm
into a very large dairy. It is the biggest in Wayne County so I was informed. It
seems Stanley hasn't been married very long. He had to wait till Patty was out of
school which was four years and to add to this he left to go to college to study
farming for three years.
Ralph McClintock has been doing very good for himself so I heard. He started
his work by working as a mechanic. He now has a large garage somewhere in the
west which explained his absence.
Gene Lance has been making very well so we heard. Since graduating from
school he has taken complete control of the La Reine Market and has even changed
the name. It now stands as the "La Reine and Lance Market," the biggest market
While on the subject of Lances there is another Lance that comes to my mind.
That is junior. Junior, after taking a great interest in sports in school Qespecially
baseballj decided to try our for the League. He is now with the Cleveland
Indians who have a very good idea that he will become the best first sacker they
have ever had.
I learned from junior that Howard Graber has followed his fathers footsteps
and has become a very successful farmer. He has even followed his footsteps as
far as to get married.
While looking around the crowd to see if I should know any other persons,
my glance fell upon a very nice looking gentleman. I almost forgot that we had a
minister in the class. To my great surprise and I know everybody else, Bob Hart
became a very good minister. He invited me to attend his church and said that I
would not miss it for it was located on the square of Jackson and in front there was
a sign "Holy Roller."
After talking to Bob, Bill Anshutz came up to say hello. He said that his
'business has not been very good and has decided to move to another state. His
reason he claimed, there were too many vetenarians in the state of Ohio.
Lowell Beyeler is trying to bring back the real civilization by selling horses
and buggies, including baby buggies.
Last but not least comes the bachelor of the class. We often wondered why
Virgil Christian never married and finally his sister told us. He never asked a
girl for a date. Good enough reason!!
And now for myself, I've done too many numerous things to tell so I will
end. -Martha Dravenstott.

It's the year nineteen hundred and fifty-nine,
The grass is green and the sky is blue.
I wonder what became of those classmates of mine,
Wlmo graduated, in number, so few.
But come with me and we'll look around,
To see if those classmates can still be found.
The sun of a beautiful August day was just beginning to set when Karen called
her father and three brothers from the fields. The days work had just been finished
and they were all looking forward to a good evening of enjoyment. just who is
the farmer? It is none other than D. I. Rich.
With his slippers and pipe Mr. Rich and his wife had just seated themselves
on the porch when he happened to think of the "Crestonia." He called for Dick
jr. to bring it. When Dick jr. brought it he asked why he always read it before
or after supper.
"Well", said father, "I used to teach school where this paper is being pub-
lished. In those years 1947-1948 through 1948-1949 the town was quite small but
now it has grown quite a bit."
Picking up the paper he began to read, when suddenly he broke the silence
by saying "Wilma, read this!"
SENIOR CLASS OF 1949 HAS REUNION
The class of 1949 were all invited to attend the class reunion at the residence
of Mr. and Mrs. Dick Ream on August 4, 1959. They spent most of the day getting
acquainted after ten years of not seeing each other. All of a sudden there was a
great roar coming from the front of the house. We all peered around the corner
to see and there she was, none other than Zella Slater. We might have known
it was she for she always roared the motor when she was learning to drive in
school. When she came in I got her to tell me all about what she was doing.
She had just come up from Texas and decided to drop in. She said she is living
on a beautiful ranch and instead of bringing her hve children she left them home
with their father.
While talking with Zella, Eleanor West came up to chat a while. She in-
formed me that Esther Russell and Virginia Landis were sorry but they could not
be present because of their work. All three were in the same business. Seems they
still were continuing their "Lonely Hearts Club" since they were in school but it
had grown to be much larger.
After telling me about them, Eleanor told me about Annetta Coffey. Seems
she had gone on to college and after all her hard work became the president of
Speaking of colleges, I often wondered what became of Bill Marko. After
looking through the crowd I finally spied him. I hadn't realized I had changed
