Senior Normal Girlz
This is a poem, most informal
Of the group of girls, best known as Normal
A jollier bunch you'll never find,
To jokes and frolics they're inclined.
Bessie Northrup oft is spied
With a Freshman by her side.
Hazel Bowers ne'er is bored
With riding in a certain Ford.
Miriam Nelson, terrible tease,
Plays jokes on every one she sees.
Lydia Blumer, as you know,
Favors one named Clifford O.
She who giggles is Helene Brown,
She never has been known to frown.
One young lady, Ettie Spear,
Won't be teaching long, I fear.
Loris Kirk intends to be,
A doctor of Osteopathy.
Hester Zollars is so "Handy,"
For a pal she is a dandy.
There's Beryl Pierce, a maiden who
ls poet, author, artist, too.
Vera Sadler, ycu'll agree,
Is brilliant as a girl can be.
Hazel Smock not strange to say,
Has a very "Winn"-ing way.
Miriam Lester fyes it's truej
ls "Grandma" to a certain few.
They tell us we should pattern by
Our teachers, that's the reason why,
When with idle time we're weighted,
Like Mrs. Brurzson, we'll get mated.

The Normal Department offers a course designed for training students to become
practical and efficient teachers. After completing this course and passing the exam-
inations given by the state, the student not only receives a diploma which permits en-
trance to any accredited college, but also receives a first grade certificate which is a
valid license to teach in any public scliool in the state for a term of two years. This
is becoming a popular course but no "snap." It requires strenuous and conscientious
labor, for the lessons are preparedfrom the teacher's standpoint as well as that of the
These young teachers as they go forth, twenty-eight strong, twelve Seniors and
sixteen Juniors feel their responsibilty to uphold the banner of progress and to Ht
hundreds of children for good citizenship and to meet the problems of life.

THE HOME COMING
The public schools of which the High School is an important factor, figured
largely in the Home Coming held in Creston on October 8 and 9, l9l9.
The great pageant in which the High School participated was divided into five
divisions: Football Men, Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.
The C. H. S. parade was headed by john Bray riding on horseback and wear-
ing the All High School banner. The pony was decorated with plumes and ribbons
of the High School colors, red and black. John was assisted by Ruth Hannelly
and Margaret Peterson, robed in attire of red and black and carrying the streamers.
Following came the "Football Men" decked out in the apparel of the field and
making a very striking appearance.
Next in line came the mighty Seniors headed by George Wickman carrying a
"Blue and Gold" banner lettered with their name.
The banner which headed the Junior class was green and white, and in these
same colors was printed "The Pride of the Faculty," a very appropriate slogan for
the class. Their banner was carried by Clayton Bacon, Louis Thompson, Earl
Kessler and Franklin Agnew.
The Sophomores were very much in evidence headed by the "Red and White"
banner, on one side of which was written "No Slackers Here" and on the other
"We Stand for Pep," and which was carried by Earl Herbel, Walton Hoover, Harry
Treanor and Edward Huntington.
The last but not the least important of the classes were the Freshmen headed
by Willis Warner and Earnest Spriggs, the bearers of a triangular shaped "Purple
and Gold" banner with "Freshmen" and "l923" in large letters.
The Faculty riding in cars beautifully decorated in red and black, added a fin-
ishing touch to this portion of the parade.
