Wendell w as a strong man on the school s football team during the last three years
of clsool Al d we should rll feel proud of havmg a man from our ranks that passed such
1 perfect exammatlon as he d d Although he has not been rn the servlce long he ought
to w rn hlgner 1 mls as on of the old proverbs go Well begun IS half won and he has
certalnly legun well Though he will be missed by his classmates and many frlends we
should wlsh hum the best of luck whlle ln the se vice
Wxlter w as the fourth man to enllst that played football He was a strong man and
we have won many touchdowns from hrs llne smashes whlch always netted us a galn
He completed just two years and three months of his Hugh School work And may we
w rsh that the condltlons will be such that he will be able to return to school next year and
talse up his worlx Wllll hrs cla mates and many friends
It seems very sad to thunk of what these boys will go lnto and the hardships they
will endure hut we should feel honored that we have elght of our members IH the ranks
of the men w ho wrll hght for our country to uphold Democracy
lhe Servlce Flag whrch I wrll present th1s afternoon may not seem a flag of much
Importance but ther 15 a great meaning ln lt and ln each of the stars You may walk
down the treet and see these flags hangmg rn the wmdows of many houses Some wlll
have one tar some two and others may have more These flags are to show us that
some one l-as left that house to do h1s bxt for Uncle Sam We may see them hanging ln
the store wlndows ln factories and many other places For each person that leaves the
ln tltutlcn a star IS placed on the flag and these stars remmd us that lt 15 our duty to
help them ln every w ay posslble as they are doing a much greater worls than we are
This means that twenty three men have left thls dlvlslon of the C B Si Q R R to enter
Our flag may not have so many stars but lt ought to mean just as much to us rf not
more as we are all more personally acquamted wlth the boys that have left our ranks
lhe whole Hrgh School should have a part ln thus as rt IS therr members that have
left to do thelr but for Lncle Sam From time to time other members of our classes wrll
be leavmg and the stars will be placed on the flag to remmd us of them after they have
left Each of the four classes should be particularly rnterested ln thls as everv class has at
least one representatrve rn the servxce except the Freshmen and no doubt rn the near
future the Freshmen C lass will be represented
ln behalf of the Semor Cla s rt vrves me great pleasure to present to the members or
the Creston Hrgh School thrs Service Flag to remmd us of the fact that we have eight rep
resentatrves ln the mllltary servrce of the United States and that we should help them ln
every w ay posslble untrl they return nome as we are dolng very llttle compared XNlll'l the
w orlc of these boys I present thls flag ln honor of S rgeant Norman Allen Corporal
Walter P ones Prrvates Charles McColl Call Schrader Harland Parker Wendell
Faullc Walter Jones and Myron Danielson P
Members of the Senror Class rt would be folly for me to try to express the entlre
feelings of the lower classes but I can l am sure express a few of their sentlments
towa ds you and the brave boys who by thelr splendld patrrotrsm have made ll posslble
that this flag mav be presented to the Hrgh School today
Fven though we can express our heartfelt thanks for thls gtft the grft Itself can surelv
express only the hrghest emblems of our apprecratron prrde gratltude and prar e
Why do we owe prrde to thus flag3 Because rt IS a remmder and proof of the fact
that elght of the best products of thus Hlgh School have sacrificed pleasure friends homes
