OFF THE RECORD
Another series of the girls basketball tournament came to an end recently.
The records show that the Senior team of girls are the "Champs." They were also
honored with this same title last year. The Senior team went straight through the
whole series of games without losing a single game, but with a few "close calls."
This Champion team consisted of only six, but all of the Senior girls, namely,
Eleanor West, Annetta Coffey, Zella Slater, Martha Dravenstott, Virginia Landis
and Esther Russell. They did a fine job and deserve a degree of honor.
The team that came in with a very close second place was the Freshmen girls.
This team of uprising competition consisted of Patty Reese, Jane DeChant,
Elloween Rook, Marcia Rhoads, Patty Viall, and Sue Robinson. They also deserve
a lot of credit for their hard work in "runner-up."
Since our girls basketball is rather roughly organized we do not have regular
forwards, guards, center forwards, managers, or captains. The girls acting as
referrees for these games have an honorable mention and also Mrs. Streett who
has made it possible for us to have these games and who taught us what we know
about our girls basketball.
Ah! What is so rare as a day in May? Especially May thirteenth. Yes, May
Day at Creston High School!
This year the Student Council and Y-Teen Girls decided to make May Day
a whole day affair.
All morning things buzzed as final preparations were in progress.
At one thirty the ceremonies began. The High School Band, followed by the
May Queen herself perched on the back seat of a shiny blue convertible, paraded
from the school downtown. Next came floats of all kinds, silly ones and beauti-
ful ones, parading for the first prize.
Following the parade, the Coronation was held out on the front lawn of the
school. The announcement of the Queen was heralded by the two paiges, Kay
Harman and Jeanette Nalley, dressed in short white skirts carrying trumpets. Next
came the attendants, Virginia Landis, Lloyd Marcum, Martha Dravenstott, Bill
Anshutz, Barbara Bixler, Paul Muhollan, Charlotte Rook, Bob Rhoades, Barbara
Cabell, John DeChant, Gerry Phouts, Richard Beichler, Jane DeChant, Robert
Hart, Pat Reese and Noble Rook. The girls were dressed in pastel formals, the
boys in dark suits. Both the sedate crowner, Eleanor West, and our beautiful
blonde Queen, Sally Reese, were dressed in gowns of white, carrying arm boquets
of mixed flowers.
Little Marcia Gordon and Darlene Hilson were flower girls. Rex Mclntire
server as crown bearer.
The Y-Teen Girls honored the Queen and court by the traditional May Pole
Everyone flocked to the ball diamond at three o'clock to witness the double-
header game between Sterling and Creston.
At six thirty a hot dog roast was enjoyed by hungry boys and girls alike.
The Queen reigned once again at nine o'clock when a formal ball and box
social was presented in her honor.
About twelve o'clock witnesses could relate tired but happy people wending
their way home after a full, but successful day. Their first May Dayl!!!! ,
"You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby." That was seen all over school
during the week of the baby contest, sponsored by the paper staff.
Anyone from the seventh to the twelveth grade was asked to bring in a baby
picture of themselves, and then they were placed in a glass case in the hall for
everyone to view.
A committee of three picked the winner without knowing the names of the
babies. The winner?????? Esther Graber.
To make the ,contest complete, Esther was crowned in a HS. Assembly, with
bonnet, blanket, baby bottle, and all the trimmings!!!!!!!!
