I THE CREST I
C. H. S. Debate Club
Under the supervision of Mr. Fry, a debate club was organized in Creston
High School at the beginning of the school term. It is thought that a Debating Class
will be had next year, and a period will be set aside for debating along with other
subjects carried. The following Debate Club officers were elected: Miss Lavena
Baker, Pres., Lucile Heflen, Vice Pres. and Thomas Hawkins, Sec'y-Treas.
The National question for debate was: Resolved that the U. S. Government
should own and operate the coal mines of the United States. The ones chosen from
this club to represent the school were: Thomas Hawkins, Lavena Baker and Paul
Huntington, who upheld the affirmative side of the question and were coached by
Miss Alta Bell.
They first met and defeated the Public Speaking Class composed of: Iver
Hansen, Maxine Kilgore and Wm. Finefield. This preliminary contest was judged by
Creston residents. Villisca, in a very honorable way, accepted defeat at their hands.
But finally, the Creston debaters met their Waterloo at Corning, by a superior team,
which had had a couple of years of experience.

"The Charm School" presented by the Junior Class of '26 on March 19, 1926
was attended by the largest crowd that was ever present at any school function held
in the assembly. On this account it was repeated the following Tuesday evening.
All characters filled their roles in a very pleasing manner. The fine directing ol'
Miss Carlson and Miss Anderson was very evident.
