THE SCHOOL BOARD ....
L. to R.:- Lewis Grills, George Steggman, Bayard Osborn, Clarence Brush-
President, Carlton Blaine, Ellsworth Hawke-Clerk,
Without the foresight, common sense, thoughtfulness, and good pllanning'
of these men our school would not be the well kept, up-to-date, enjoyable in-
stitution that we have. They meet the second Monday of each month. Mr.
Clarence Brush is president. Mr. Ellsworth Hawke, clerk.
We appreciate their efforts and sincerely thank them.
The Eatonian Staff
To Mrs. Leiby ....
. . . . we, the staff, dedicate this annual, To her w'ho put
forth such untiring efforts we wish to express our gratitude
and our thanks.
She has encouraged us and has kept our interest as
attentive as hers throughout the making of it. Through her
constant guidance we h-ave made our annual what it is.
OUR PRINCIPAL ....
W. E. KESSLER
Five years ago Mr. Kessler came into our midst as our
principal and teacher.
His quiet way and good natured disposition has won in
his way into the hearts of his pupils.
The Man Who's Square
There is something in the twinkle
Of an honest fe1low's eye
That can never be mistaken,
And can never be passed by.
Be his station 'high or lowly,
There's that dauntless, upright air
That convinces all beholders
That the man they see is square.
Heaven gives to such men influence
Over those they daily meet.
If they see a fallen brother,
They will help him to his feet:
Make the sneaks a bit uneasy,
Ma-ke the false act kind of fair,
For the greatest rogue on record
Will respect the man who's square.

Eaton High School has had several janitors in its history but one of the
most friendly and likable of them all is Cleon Crowell, better known to his
friends as "Bade."
He has been here three years and has done fine work both inside and out
to keep the school looking nice.
The School Busses ....
Our school board has provided these modern busses for our safety and
convenience. As they appear above left to right:-No. 2 is driven by Elton
Hill, No. 1 by Louis Munn, No. 3 by Robert Grills, and No. 4 by Leland Durkee.
These men have proved themselves very capable drivers. Parents and pupils
may place the utmost confidence in them. We want these drivers to klnow
we appreciate their services.

The Prophecy ot the Class of I939 ....
It was quite late one Sunday afternoon
when I left the Yacht Club for a sail in
my trusty "Dream Ship." I was drifting
slowly through the quiet waters enjoying
the peaceful solitude, when I was suddenly
startled by a human voice. Had my ears
deceived me? I was positive that I had
been alone on board, yet someone had
spoken to me. I distinctly heard the
words, "You, who listen, are still among
the living, but I, who speak, have Long
since travelled into the mysterious regions
of the future." Terrified beyond expres-
sion, I turned slowly in the direction
from when-ce the sound had come. And
lo! There stood an aged man ---just a
dark shadow, formless, vague, indeflnite,
yet lplossessing a voice. I stood petrified
as the blood froze in my veins. Then again
the voi-ce came in its hollow guttural tones.
"Sit down and forget your fears. I
s-hall not harm you. This afternoon, be-
fore I appeared, you had been idly specu-
l-ating on what the future held for your
wonderful class olf 1939. Let me tell you
by reading from the Book of Time in
which men's future destinies are prophe-
My fear having somewhat abated at
these strange words I sat down as I was
commanded to do. It was then that I not-
iced a large book tucked under the Phant-
om's arms. He opened the pages slowly
with long stealthy fingers and fbegan to
read. The words came slowly but distinct-
"The first name I see here is that of
Evelyn Oldag. Her vocation is classified
with the Fine Arts. Daily she is seen
flitting through the -woods, teaching her
aesthetic dancing class the art of 'beauty
'Closely connected with this art is that
of the musical comedy, vrhere we find
Eugene fCornish's "Suppresseid Desire." It
is a super-musical review featuring the
"personality lad"- - - Paul Sievert- - as the
leading man. Starring against .him is that
delightful lady who has sung and danced
-her way into the heart of Broad-way ---
In the field of Literature we find two
prominent men. The first is none other
than Donald Phelps. His claim to a place
among our fo1'emost writers is due to -the
fact that he is the editor of America's
best seller, "The Rambling Stories." Our
second literary genius has just finished
a book that contains invaluable informa-
tion for ambitious students. This great
author has taken the name of "Alibi Da",
and the title of his latest work is "A Com-
plete Collection of Excuses and A"ibis
Suited for All Occasions." Just recently
it has been 'discovered the author's real
name is none other than our own Dave
In the field of science I find many
names. Ernest Basset, a noted New York
psyvchologist, has discovered seven kinds
of love-one for each day of the week. A
notable discovery declared the leading
women scientists---Regina Shuster an-d
The next classification I .find here deals
with the professions. One Jack Rule, Di-
rector of Efficiency for the government
PZYDXM Program, is studying the great
"One Woman Talkie", Margarete Box. He
believes that he will have her jaw patented
because in it he has discovered perpetual
The call of the open road and the spirit
of adventure have woven their spells
around the lives of Emily Ertl and Betty
Ziehm. In the course of their journey
around the world they met Mary McAlpin
in Alaska selling refrigerators. Anoth-er
time while travelling through Turkey, they
were very mu-c'h impressed 'by the fact
that the women had very few privileges.
Imagine their surprise when one day they
saw one very young American woman
standing on a soap ibox in a public square,
orating on "The Freedom and Independ-
ence of Woman." They were further'
astounded upon learning tha tthe woman
was an old classmate of theirs--Amelia
Balogh. They often .tell the strange in-
cidents they heard while traveling in
Egypt. A man named George Komm, as
the story goes, was known to have
spent hours out in the desert telling the
Sphinx what he thought of Prohibition.
Amy Christensen and Lavora Hawke,
'who succeeded Mrs. Maxwell and Martha
Lee, are now giving consolation and ad-
vice to needy students olf Eaton High.
Recently they received letters from Cleo
Hoskins and Margaret Stranahan. Cleo
wondered if she could be .happy and suc-
cessful leading a "High Life." I presume
she meant living at the North Pole.
Margaret wanted to know if she could be
happy spending her life on a lonely west-
ern ran-ch, darning her husbanld's socks.
One we almost overlooked was the head-
line taken fr-om the local bleet. We still
can remember the days when his name
was in the papers consistently, and now
he - - Art Rice, as a successful lawyer, is
defending one Betty Lyons in a Breach of
Promise suit against a lover who wishes
his na.me to remain u-nknown.
With the reading of this last name, the
shadow slowly raised his head and watched
me for a long time. I slat still and pon-
dered upon what he had revealed to me.
It was strange. "Man in all his greatness
must bow beforc this higher power."
The silence between us was finally brok-
en by the voice of the shadow. "Dear
listeners, I have revealed to you the fut-
ure's secrets. I hope I hav-e answe1'ed all
the questions that were crowding your
mind. If so, I have completed my mission
and I must return to the region whence
With these .parting words, the sha-dow
closed the Book of Time. The pale, ghastly
glow from the illuminated pages died away
in the fold of the enveloping velvet cloak
of the approaching night. Again I was
alone, Still under the spell of what .had
been revealed to me, I slowly turned the
"Dream Ship" and sailed into the darkened
secrets of Human Life.
