Our Third Year's March
The soldiers of l920 returned to Camp Creston High, after a three months
furlough. We were all very enthusiastic and full of unrestrained "pep,"
The first large battle we had was when our ranks were attacked by the national
enemy, the Spanish Influenza. We were out in battle several weeks, then we re-
tumed to camp, victorious. .
We then entered many minor battles with Solid Geometry, Cicero, French Psycho-
logy, and their numerous allies. However, most of us came through unscathed, al-
though a few were slightly wounded.
All during the year, our wonderful troops were often reviewed and approved of,
by the famous General Pickett.
Our camp, as all good camps do, boasted of good baseball and football teams.
These lively bunches played quite a few exciting and rousing games with the various
out of town camps.
Regularly every nine weeks, our camp was bombarded by the tests, but, due to
the thorough preparation given us by Captain MacEachran and the other officers, we
did not come out second best in these stiff skirmishes.
Later on we were attacked by the Spring Fever army, and most of our ranks
were affected by the terrifhc onslaught. But in time we rallied bravely and
kept on our march.
Then came the big event, when we paid our tribute to the Army of l9l9, which
was getting ready for demobilization. The tribute took concrete form in the prepara-
tion and presentation of the Annual Junior-Senior banquet.
The lower hall, domestic science room, and the general's office of the barracks
was the scene of the gay festival. The decorations were lavishly and handsomely
fashioned of crepe paper streamers: the main hall being done in the good old colors,
blue and gold, while the rest of the color scheme was perpetuated in the colors of the
Army of l9I9, green and white. The menu was as follows:
Meat Loaf Mashed Potatoes
Ice Cream Assorted Cake
This was followed by a fine program, given by some of the talented members
of our ranks.
