F i PAGE l11DI'1'Ol2IAI,S. ANNUAL BOARD. HOWARD IRVIN, Editor in Chief. EDYTHE JORDAN, Local Editor. FLORENCE TENNEY, Secretary. HARRY ABY, Business Manager. Hu WALTER EDIS, Assistant Business Manager. In the publishing of this paper which we have given the name, The Creston High School Annual, we have tried to establish a custom which we hope will be followed by each succeed- ing class. As this is our first attempt at journalism, we ask of you to overlook our many mistakes and short-comings, for we are young and inex- perienced with the work of a journalist. One glance at the contents of this book will perhaps give you some idea of what we are do- ingin this our High School. As editors and publishers, we earnestly sol- icit your help and patronage in the future. In behalf of the class of 1908 we wish to thank the business and professional men for re- sponding so readily when our business manager called on them for their advertisements and financial aid, which has made it possible for us to put out this Annual. It has been our aim not only to make this a High School Annual, but also a business di- rectory of the village of Creston. We are proud to say that Creston is one of the best towns in the country, especially, since Wooster, Seville, Sterling and Burbank have been annexed as suburbs. We boast of the fact that we have-sixteen passenger trains go thru our town daily, and that every twenty-four hours thirty-eight pass- enger coaches and four baggage cars pass thru Creston on the electric line, and are operated by the finest crews in the State of Ohio. One of the main things which make Cres- ton the best little town in Ohio, is her wide- awake, energetic, upright business men. We wish also to state that she is noted for her hospitable and talented ladies. Also, we do not feel embarrassed when we state that no f 16 town of its size can boast of as many good look- ing young ladies as Creston. As the world grows older the need of an education grows more necessary and our High School, tho not as fine in appearance as some, is trying to fit those who enter its doors with knowledge which will be of use to them in their after business life. We have a corps of teachers-the best that could be procured-and they give to us day by day the results of their study and experience, and try to impress upon our minds the fact that we are in this world to learn and to do some- thing which will not only be a help to us, but to others as well. We sincerely hope that next year when the "Wise" Juniors make their exit and solicit for ads.that all the business men will respond cheer- fully to their wail and harangue. We think we can almost hear them tip-toeing along the Main streets of Creston, as the American Indian used to do when he was getting ready to get the scalp of his next door neighbor. But as a word of caution to the business public of Creston, do not be alarmed at all, but keep quiet and stand your ground while they open fire, for it will con- sist mostly of noise and hot air, resembling in sound the going off of a penny bunch of fire- crackers on the Fourth of Julv. So please drop your money and ad. into their outstretched phalanges and help the poor creatures to reach the goal for which they have been striving, since they have left their mothers' knees. The public will please excuse the editor and his stai from entering into the scientific topics of the day and discuss them from a business, a professional or a literary stand point of view. For if we had undertaken the discussion of any of those topics in a business, a scientiiic, or a literary way, we might have become enshrouded so deeply in thot and make such a comprehen- sive declaration of facts, that there'Would be nothing left for our successors, the Subordinate Juniors, to Write about except love stories or courtship subjects on which our Junior boys no doubt can give ia complete description from the many experiences which they have had during the past year. As we go to press we feel sorry that this closes our High School life, a life that has been fraught with so many pleasures and memories that will last we hope 'till we are summoned to meet our Maker.

7--1-W -i-'W -- '- I l l PAGE Build Not for Today. By Howard Irvin. To build is to erect or construct anything' upon some foundation. When a man contemplates build- ing a house he first lays his plans before a master- mechanic. Then after selecting a site, the foun- dations are laid firm and solid, and upon these he may build his home, and entertain no fears as to his structure giving away. So it is with ns, we must have some occupation in view which we should like to pursue when we are thrown out upon ,the world to live upon our own resources and efforts. 'l' il' it The principal factors in the construction of a solid foundation for a successful career, are Char- acter, Education and Application. First, let us be- gin with Character, since it is the most important quality that is needed to finish out a successful life. For, as one writer has said, 'lCharacter is what we are, and reputation what others think we are." il if il' It has been proven over and over again, not only that"Honesty is the best policy," but, that in order to be a success in any one thing, we mrtst be honest and apply diligently and with all sincerity the splendid philosophy of the "Royal Law of Lovell! -lf it' Habit is another thing which determines much in a man's character. Bad habits lower the stand- ard of manhood, and if they are continued too long, they will leaye a stain, which neither time nor good works can entirely efface. In building not alone for today, another thing which exerts a powerful influence over ns for good or evil, is the associates we have around us. 'l' 'l' Therefore let our associates be such that their influence will have a tendency to inspire usto high- er and nobler aims in life. il' il' li We know notwhat lies before us. Let us remem- ber that the acorn, which we unconsciously trample under foot, with its dull and rough exterior, seem- ingly worthless, yet when Nature has asserted her power and has touched the seat of life within that rough exterior, there is a budding forth of new life which grows, and grows, and grows until it becomes a strong and mighty king of the forest. So it is withour characters,as we pass along lifels path- way. There are many things that will come to ns which will seem to be immaterial for the building up of our characters, yet in after years they will become most important in the directing' and shap- ing' of a successful life. il il' il' We would not minimize a good, strong, practi- cal education, Webster defines education thus: "Education trains the mental powers, enlightens the understanding, forms and regulates the princi- ples of a man, tits him for any business, or activity and usefulness in life." Such being the case, we should all strive to secure as thorough an education as our circum- stances, in life, will permit. Y il' 'l' To succeed in any business, it is absolutely necessary that we are schooled thoroly in the work which we intend to follow. 'l' 4 f Earnest application is the next important factor 15 in this great structure of life. XVe must apply ourselves faithfully to our work and as surely as we do, Success is bound to meet us on the way. " tl' Perseverance is another essential quality in the developement of character. it ii' 4 What a splendid lesson in perseverance we may learn from the lines, 'llf you donlt at first succeed, try. try again." if il' 'F Huild not for todayg we should build such a structure that it will stand thru eternityg one that will stand the storms and tempests of Timeg one that will shine out upon the world and be a beacon light to those who may see and be encouraged to seek a firm foundation. il it il' ' How beautifully the poet has expressed it when he says: "So livc. that- nhen Lhy summons comes to join the innumer- able caravan. which moves 'llo that tnystt-rious rt-alms where each shall bake llis t'lnnmbt:r in the silent halls of tltfatll. 'llhou 5:11. not lllte the quarry-slave at night Scourggt-d IO his dungeon: nut sustained and soothed liy an unfallering trust.. approach thy grave Lilac one who wraps the drapery of his couch About hhn, and lies down to pleasant dreams." qgilfllilgitmiiiliillt Class March . .

PAGE 17 HUMOR. In the Class Room. Pearl twhile translating in Virgill "They were hindered by the moonlight." Mr. H. tin Eng. Lit.J "State some virtues por- trayed in Piers Plowmanf' E. A. j. "Hypocrisy." I While M. Z. was naming the series of acts re- stricting immigration, stated that "Polygamists and deceased persons were shut out." Prof. H. "Gladys, can you tell me the popula- tion of Cleveland?" Gladys. "I should think about 7,tltXl,0tl0." According to that statement Cleveland has grown some in the last few days. A bright Senior's definition of alimentary can- al: "The alimentary canal is a narrow tube con- sisting of the oesophagus, stomach and liver." The answer ofa wise Freshie regarding Reflex action: "Reflex action is when the organs of the body stop fora few minutes and then start up again." We are glad to announcea new natural curiosi- ty-also advanced by a Freshman-that the Nile river now flows south and east. The Sophomores being an extremely excellent class,they seldom make mistakes. For example: Miss Parmerlee "Why don't people live in des- erts?" ' ' Little William. "Becta use of the danger of land- slides." M. B. tin History Classy "And he was married to his wife!" tClass laughs.l Prof. "Well that's true, Miles, he could not very well marry anyone else." Mr. B. fwarming to his subjectl "Also they were always in a state of tumult because they did not like the union to each other." In Botanyclass, one of the pretty little Fresh- tnan girls has always a way of losing herself and being in complete oblivion to her surroundings. One day when away on one of these flights, Miss Parmerlee exclaimed, in her coldest tones: "Daisy, come to earth." Woeful was the fall of the Freshie. Two .I uniors were discussing their parts in that famous drama, "The Fave at the Window." H. I. T. "You are supposed to be the villian and carry me away." P. E. M."Gee Whiz! if I'm put on to do THAT, you will have to take some antifatf' Side Lights of the Professor. "A hint to the wise is sufticent, and if you can't take a hint, my boy, a - follows." 'tThere shall be weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth when the exams come." "If he don't make good, we will STING him out." "It was a moonlight night by a babbling brook." "Better study a little, Ivan, those smiles look rather cheap." "A Merry Widow is defined as a hat that would cover a regiment." "XVe, in these modern times, call it a turn down when you go after something and don't get it. Ask the Senior boys." Glimpses of Miss Parmerlee. "lt isa glorious thing to have knowledge, but still better to know how to use it." t'Waike up! Walter, you will put us to sleep." "I never look at you unless you make me. I am sure, I don't want to at all. "Don't be a fool because someone else is." 'tYou are Freshmen in every sense of the word." "This boy and girl business must be stopped until High School is tinishedf' Our Opinion of 1909. Ruby - General Business Manager. Helen C.-Patient Devotion. Paul--Future journalist. Hazel-Always in Demand. Helen T.-Sweet, but Already Picked. Bird-Hx-Society Belle. Edgar-Ardent Admirer of Ruby Lights. Miles--An lnveterate Knocker. Ralph--Amateur Electrician. yy Our Opinion of the Faculty. Prof. Heichel- A jolly Sport. Miss Parmerlee--A Confirmed Pessimist. Mr. Kindig-Not Difhcult, but Practical. Miss Sigler-Sedate and Prim. Miss Houts-Dotty Dimples. Miss Mead A Dear Young Thing. Miss Websters.-X never-let up on the Chromatic Scale. Rules for the Freshmen to FoHow. If ball playing is interfering with studying, stop studying. If you can Find Spring Beauties when you go to the woods, go, but if not, look for them in the city, and not in your class. Never stay out later than 9:30 unless by the Principals permission. Always keep a lemon in the refrigerator. Never use a stronger word than "Dear Me." Be kind to your playmates and respectful to your elders, and hats off to Seniors. Remember that the "course of true love never runs smooth." Don't talk to the junior girls unless they sit be. hind you. "0hl what a dreary place this world would he were there no Freshmen in it."
