For a number of years, it has been customary for Creston High School to hold
an annual Declamatory contest, in which any member of the High School may partici-
pate, if he so desires. This year, the contestants were coached by our public speak-
ing instructor, Miss jeffrey, whose ability was well manifested in the merits of those
whom she trained. The contest, which was of special interest this year, was held
January 9, in the High School auditorium, every class in High School being repre-

In the oratorical class, Mr. Franklin Agnew was awarded first and Miss Frances
Brown second, in the dramatic class Miss Alice Sherwood was awarded first and Miss
Katherine Farthing second, and in the humorous class Mr. George Wickman was
awarded First and Mariam Renyolds second.
The honor of being first over all was given to Miss Alice Sherwood of the Senior
Class who, without a doubt, was well entitled to being so ranked. Miss Sherwood
therefore represented us in the Sub-District Contest held at Lenox, Iowa, on Friday

evening, March 5. A large group of enthusiastic students who had all confidence in
their representative, accompanied her there and formed no small part of the audience.
For the first time in several years our hopes were fulfilld when Miss Sherwood
carried off the first honors of the Dramatic Class as well as first over all.
The District Contest was held at Tabor, Iowa, on March 26, in which the rep-
resentatives of the different towns in Southwestern Iowa took part. Creston was repre-
sented by Miss Sherwood reading, "The Song and the Man," in the Dramatic Class.
On account of the poor train connections, it was possible for a very few only to
attend the District Contest. Of course, we were all sorry that the decision of the
judges was not in our favor, but nevertheless our representative made an excellent show-
ing, being ranked high by all the judges. The competition was unusually keen, and
we feel proud of our representative and hope to see our school represented in the State
Contest next year.
