I949 ANNUAL 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 in Creston. 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. IPAGE EIGTHEENI

l'949 ANNUAL CLASS PROPHECY 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 Dennison College. 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 IPAGE SEVENTEENI
