of relaxation between the performances. 'fWill she make it?" the sur-
rounding crowd is wondering. She did.

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.

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
Skill games of various types were presented by the HifY,
Boys' Science Club, Tennis and Golf Clubs, and Stamp
Club throughout the building.

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."
