The Creston High School Athletic Club was organized at the beginning of the school
year with Mr. Scantlebury as Srponsor. The club was formed with the purpose' of fur-
thering athletics in Creston and especially in Creston High School. The list of the club's
achievements is long. It had programs printed and sold for the football games at home.
At the end of the season it presented a banner to the football team of Franklin School,
winners of the grade school championship. It drew up new rules for the awarding of
athletic letters, these rules being subject to the approval of the Student Council. Mem-
bers of the club not on the basketball squad formed a basketball team which played in the
preliminaries at some of the games. The members of the club assisted the visiting teams
during the Sectional Basketball Tournament. Throughout the year the club never hesi-
tated to take the initiative in any matter pertaining to athletics. Membership in the
club was held open to all boys interested in athletics whether they actually participated in
sports or not. It numbered among its membership boys prominent in all departments of

New contacts with other high schools and new ways to win honor for Creston High
were made possible this year by the addition of debating to the list of extra-curricular
activities. Although all debaters were unexperienced, an excellent showing was :made
and a state championship is in prospect.
About twenty-five candidates answered the first call last fall and fifteen of them
presented complete debates in the final tryouts. Those ranking highest, who were given
positions on the team were Robert Packwood, Clara Rodabaugh, Margaret McDonough
and Kenneth Miller. Others who made notable showings were Eugene Penn, Regina Abbey,
Jerome Geller, and Dorothy Ross. Robert Packwood and Clara Rodabaugh made up the
affirmative team, while Margaret McDonough and Kenneth Miller were on the negative
A survey of the season at the time of writing shows five victories and one defeat.
Both affirmative and negative teams won from Corning and Lenox by unanimous de-
cisions. In the Shenandoah debates, the Creston Affirmative Team lost by a vote of 'two
to one, while the local negative team won by a similar vote. Since debating is organized
in Iowa in the form of a state-wide tournament, the local team will continue to debate
until they are eliminated or until they win the state championship.
The question debated in all contests was, "Resolved, that the United States should
cease to protect, by armed forces, American capital invested in Latin America, except
after formal declaration of Warf'
The work has been under the direction of Mr, Thompson, who coached the teams and
accompanied them on most of the trips.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The Crest Chapter of the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools was officially
established in Creston High School April 3, 1929. A very impressive program attended
the presentation of the charter by Superintenden DeWolf and the installaion of mem-
bers by Principal Feelhaver.
This event marked one of the milestones in the progress of C. H. S., for it was one
of the greater forward steps taken in the history of the school. Not only does member-
ship in the National Honor Society bear prestige and honor to the student members, but
also to the entire school as an organization, The charter, number 777, authorizing the
establishment of the Crest Chapter, entitled C. H. S. to an official ranking among the
outstanding schools of the nation. Very rigid qualifications must be met before any school
may become affiliated with the national organization, and Creston High is exceedingly
proud of the fact that she can reach the superior standards demanded.
The primary object of the National Honor Society is to foster scholarship. Recogni-
tion is thereby given to those who uphold the standards and virtues of the school by
maintaing a high scholastic average throughout their high school career. But to base
student membership solely upon scholarship was not deemed sufficient. Therefore three
other very important qualifications were added to the first, namely, leadership, service,
According to all the qualifications given, a member must rank in the upper forth of
his respective class, he must be willing to render cheerfully and efficiently any service
to the schoolg he must demonstrate his ability of leadership by successfully holding posi-
tions of responsibility and he must constantly prove his character by demonstrating such
qualities of personality, honesty, reliability, promptness, achievement, and morality as
one indispensable to the finest young manhood and vvomanhood.
THE PLEDGE OF EACH MEMBER
I pledge myself to uphold the high purposes of this society to which I have been elect-
ed, striving in every way, by word and deed, to make its ideals the ideals of my school.
