Many of its present members par' ticipated in the migratory movement from the neighboring grammar schools to the newly completed Creston Junior High School in September, 1923. This eventful day marked a new era of learning in our lives. As young seventhfgraders, influenced by our spacious surroundings and systematic teaching, much progress was made. Due to youth and inexperience and not lack of interest, few were able to join the Orchestra which was begun under Mr, Amos. Our first experience in class organization came in the Student Council and Room Clubs. The banking system, which is so well in Creston now, was introduced at this time. The object was to teach thrift and it may well be said that as a class we took hold' wonderfully. These two short years of preliminary training in high school ways afforded us an excellent foundation with which in our Freshman year we plunged into a new realm of studies. Under the direction of Mr. Kellar the band materialized, seemingly out of thin air, attract- ing many of our class into its midst. This organization proved a great factor in boosting the spirit at the games. In our Sophomore year we were packed into two session rooms under the direction of Miss Lindberg and Mr. Rens. r This period was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in carefree happiness with no extra activities pushing and pulling. Of course, many of the Sophomores played in the Orchestra and Band and sang in the Glee Clubs and many tool-r part in the athletics which were gaining a strong hold on Creston. Under the excellent guidance and advice of Miss Spencer, our Junior year was made a huge success hnancially as well as socially. It was decided that no class dues would be levied but that as a class we would earn all the money necessary for our expenses. This was the Erst year the class was organized in one roomg as officers, Harold De Windt was chosen president, Evelyn Van Bree, vicefpresidentg and Al Rosendall. secretaryftreasurer. Our class was well represented in the music department composed of Orchestra, Band and Glee Clubs. Also much interest was shown in football, basketball and other sports. Many members brought credit to the class in these activities. The students had always been deeply concerned in the welfare of the school paper, "The Echo," but this was the first time that any had been regular contributors. In celebration of a very successful money raising campaign, the junior party was given for the Juniors and their friends. The Senior Reception was undoubtedly the best party Creston had ever seen and was enjoyed by everyone present. This is the annual party given by the Junior class for the Seniors and its success was another example of the close cofoperation of the Juniors. The class felt that it had lived up to its motto, "Always l0O'Xi." Loaded with experience and training as Juniors, we were ready for the takefoff and climb to the exalted position of Seniors. As we assumed this new position and our new responsibilities, we found valuable aid in the council given us by Mr. Buss, our advisor, in this, our last year at Creston High School. After much deliberation and with great wisdom. we chose Al Rosendall as our presidentg Ed Baas, vice-presidentg Polly Scott, secretaryg and Bob Daverman as treasurer. Many class meetings were held to discuss important matters and fifteen committees were appointed to take care of details, Early in the fall term the Public Speaking classes, composed mostly of Seniors. produced a play, "The Three Gracesf' which met with great approval. Following this the class staged a Senior Vodvil, a huge success. The proceeds from this show were used for the Senior Mixer, an annual social event held early in February to which the junior Class was invited. A slight interruption to our activities came in midfyear when we were transferred to our room in the new addition. It was nothing short of a miracle that we managed to keep up in our work with rings, pins, photos, colors, yells, song, march, poem, play, and annual claiming our attention. The class has always made a credible record in scholarship and has shown great interest in all things pertaining to the development of our minds and the gaining Qf knowledge. Not the least bit slighted are the athletics at Crestong namely, our championship 'basketball team and the football squad which performed so well. For a motto. we chose "Not Finished, just Begun" as the deepest expression of our feelings. We have not ended our connection with Creston, we have not finished our educations, no matter what trend of life we may follow, but rather we have just begun. With this wonderful start afforded us at Creston High School, we hope to take our place among the worthfwhile of the world. . ts.. - .- , gl U3 J., 'Z ..2L.
