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. .Z Junior Class Play "Callie Cflgariu agrlpiulu CAST David MacKenzie, a law student .
