Of the n1ne remamlng boys only one of them stlll lrves at Creston three others are
In low 1 yet md srx ID other states I believe only two of the girls have left the Hawkeye
About a third of the class went away to college Four of the boys are farmers
two hxve lecome lawvers and three are engaged ln the business world At least three
f the gnls hmvc married and became homemakers four are teachmg two are IH ofhces
md stores and the others are at home or rn work of which I do not know
Wluerr l reflect on how far awav ln the dlm past the class of l893 seemed when
l w xs a Scmor I can reallle what ancient history thls must seem to those now attending
But I must take this opportunity to say that even twelve years ago f reston had a
thoroughly progressive and up to date hugh school that was before manual tralnlng and
domestic sclence departments But the library was then well developed we had mstruc
tron rn muslc Mrs Sawyer gave us art Instruct on and many other prlnclples of logic
psychology and foundation blocks for character bulldlng to clothe with Interest the dry
bones of Engllsh lrterature Miss MacE,achran pumped real Interest into history and Mrs
Vida Smrth Brown forced enjoyment Into dull Caesar Gvld and Vlfgll I believe our
clx s was the hxst to graduate students who had flnlshed the separate commercial course
And what s more ln those days we also had a football team that cleaned up south
Rather than devote our space to a dry recrtal of what each one of us has been doing
we would close w lth remlndmg those latter classes that we were one of the last of thlrty
thxt rs the mstructlon of Mr S E. Sawyer Lxvmg a llfe of dallv servxce whlch I
belleve has been more useful to the community of Creston than that of any other smgle
resident of our clty this unassuming heroine of life IS best described by the words of
C hnles Reade
Not a day passes over the earth but men and women of no note do great deeds
perk great words and suffer noble sorrows Of these obscure heroes philosophers and
m utyrs the greater part wrll never be known tlll that hour when many that were great
slnll be small and the small great
