Shoving through the crowded corridors at a leisurely pace at the gala carnival, Crestonite, are interested spectators who are making the rounds of the concessions. One of the attractions was the Camp Fire Girls Drum and Bugle Corps composed of members from Creston and Central groups. Q -Busily engrossed with the shooting of a basket in the boys' gym is Vivian Brecken, a member of the auditorium acts, who is taking a moment of relaxation between the performances. 'fWill she make it?" the sur- rounding crowd is wondering. She did. A comedy, "Little Lulu," was presented by members of the dramatics classes.. Pictured here during one of the "exciting" moments are Jacqueline Hunt, Bernice Berry, and Victor DeGraff. Throng Attends Gala Cr-estonite Dance Parade Named Biggest Feature: Roller-Skating, Fishing Ponds Add to Merrimeni Blaring horns, popping balloons, shoving crowds, crunch' ing of popcorn, and shrieks of laughter filled the halls of Creston at the gala carnival, the 'lCrestonite," on March 25. To gain money to pay for pictorial pages for the clubs in the Saga and help pay for the band uniforms was the immediate aim of the "Crestonite." Mr. Emery T. Toogood was in general charge of the carnival, Miss Mary Windt, publicity, and Mr. Harold Carlyon, tickets. Portrayal of dances through the ages in the school audi' torium was named the best feature of the entire carnival. The curtains were drawn back to show a darkened stage on which an uncanny Indian war dance was taking place. The next presentation was a minuet with the colonial fig' ures gliding gracefully to the melodic strains of the "Minuet in G," followed by a rousing, stomping Negro dance. Prof ceeding through the dances of the ages, a Virginia reel and barn dance were demonstrated. Climaxing the show came the hot, breathftaking "Big Apple." The cafeteria was transformed into a rollerfskating rink by the Hikers Club, where young and old alike exhibited their skill in the upfandfcorning sport. Comedies, farce, and pantomine were combined in the three short plays, 'iRomeo and Juliet," "Lulu," and "The Duchess Bounces In," presented by the dramatics and debate classes. Luscious food and bakedfgoods sales, popcorn vending machines, ring toss, racketeering, Japanese bowling, and the Dionne Quints were among the many features strung throughout the building to add pleasure to the carnivalites. Fish of every size, shape, and description were pulled out of the Junior Girl Reserve fish pond, and the "C" Club presented a vivid, allfstar movie. f Displaying a variety of talented people, the A.B. Club put on a vaudevil show, while the Airplane Club sponsored a movie and displayed their model airplanes. The secrets of palmistry were mastered by the girls of the junior Honor Society, while the boys performed the baffling mirror trick to add an air of mystery to the occaf sion. The Senior Honor Society took charge of the check room. Skill games of various types were presented by the HifY, Boys' Science Club, Tennis and Golf Clubs, and Stamp Club throughout the building. The Senior Girl Reserve white elephant sale proved to be one of the most successful attractions of the evening. Grab bags were sold by the Senior Girls' Glee Club. Although it isn't exactly leap year, the All 'Round Club sponsored a Damsel Drag in the girls' gymnasium. "Felix the Bull Fighter" was presented by the Student Council, and the Camp Fire Girls gave the "Spirit of '38." "Barrels of Funl' was the Botany Club's part and the Sky Rocket Qelevator to youj became the property of the Hobby Club for one evening. One of the largest crowds in the carnival history of Creston was present March 25 and total profits exceeded 337200.

Some of the articles for the fish pond were purchased from a novelty company, others were collected by the girls. Martha Dooge was placed in general charge of the concession. As a project the Junior Girl Reserves started some slips. Two girls were appointed to water the growing plants and when they were large enough they were transplanted. The next step in their ambitious plan was painting flower pots with all bright colors. Completing the project the girls sold the flowers, fully grown, at the Y.W.C.A. and cleared 35.10 profit.

Dorothy McDaniel and Beatrice Smith were cofchairmen and planned the hike. In all of their moneyfmaking ventures, the Junior Girl Reserves had one aim in view, to earn enough money to go to camp.
