THE SENIORS OF '30.
The Polar Bear,
A Pine Tree.
Class Song of 1930
Freshmen just we came,
To these halls of fame.
Studied hard each day,
Worked hard but had our play.
As Sophomores we were found true,
Then juniors loyal too.
And now as Seniors grave,
We leave this dear High School.
Praise we'll always sing,
Honor try to bring.
Creston High to you,
And to the Maize and Blue.
Tho we leave behind,
Friends and classmates dear.
Out upon life's way,
We'll meet you in the fray.
May God bless every student,
Who'll bring his trials through.
And who will cast the credit
Back to this High School.
May we part right here,
At the threshold near.
With a handshake true,
That will remain with you.
Music by Weyman Scott,

HEN the curtain draws an old gypsy hag is seen sitting on a stool before a
fire. She is stirring something in a huge iron caldron, and muttering to her'
self. A group of American tourists approach noisily. At the sight of the old
woman one of them exclaims:
"Come on, all you brave adventurers, I'll dare you to have your fortunes read!"
The party laughs loudly and as they draw nearer to the fire, another member
addresses the crone:
"Is it true, Madame, that you are able to read our present, past, and future?"
The old woman nods her assent and after a series of consultations and jests
among the tourists one of them detached herself from the group and after placing
a silver dollar in the grimy hand of the gypsy, said:
"I was a member of the fourth graduating class of Creston High School. For
years I have seen and heard nothing of any of my classmates. If it is in your power
to do so, please tell me of their whereabouts."
The gypsy peered at the tourist intently, then motioning her and her companf
ions to be seated, poured a strange black powder into the caldron. This queer
mixture she stirred slowly, looking intently into it, as though she expected to find
the solution of her problem in its contents. At length she began in a low, cultured
"I see President Luther and Senators Basil Church, Clipper Butler, Warren
Oatly, Erwin Carlberg, and Thomas Cook enjoying their afternoon tea in the lounge
room of the White House. Ah . . . a butler enters, it is Fred Brandau.
"The mists change and a residential district in New York captures my vision.
Two women are sweeping the walks in front of their respective homes. They seem
to be conversing. I cannot hear the exact words but I believe they are as follows:
" 'Oh, Helen, are you and Eddie coming over tonight?'
" 'Why, as far as I know, Eda. Say, how did your plum jelly turn out?' "
fComment from touristsj: So, Helen and Eda are married!
"The scene is changing, and I visualize the bright lights of Broadway. A popu'
lar theatre has the following words in headlights:
" 'Miss Thelma Evans, celebrated danseusef
"At the same theatre I find Ben Chapman, a noted magician, Frank De Young
and John Raum, renowned acrobats and, according to the bulletin posted by Ernest
Sandy, the manager, a group of Metropolitan Opera stars are booked for the com'
ing week. The prima donna is none other than Ada Ellerbrook.
"I catch a glimpse of the New York social calendar. A wellfknown society
woman, Bernice Kolderman, is entertaining Rev. Chester Lugthart, that flaming
evangelist who has succeeded Aimee MacPherson. A group of missionaries have
booked passage on the Mauretania. Among these leaders, who are about to brave
the dangers of 'Africa, I see Jessie Ypenga, Leo Schwabe, Irene Rudy, and jack Vyn.
"Ah, the inside of a broadcasting studio! I hear the announcer, Leo Solomon,
talking through the microphone.
" 'Ladies and Gentlemen, you have just heard a lecture by Dr. George Calkins,
and we continue our program with Bill Isabel and his Band playing a concluding
number taken from the "Oh Yeah" musical comedy by that famous song writer,
Weyman Scott. At the close of this selection we will enter the Columbia network
for the regular Friday evening debate by Peter Middleton and Walter Pigorsh on
the chainfstore question. Please stand by.'
