Prayer of the Sophies.
Dear Seniors, to whom we look, hallowed be thy name, thy victory
won, thy instructions filled, we kindly ask you for your aid.
Give us this day a little more courage, and forgive us our sins and we'll
forgive yours, too. But lead us not into a scrap, but deliver us from all
that, for thine is all glory and power and hunky-dory. Forever,
Yespthe Seniors are your shepherds, you cannot doubt itg they make
you to go where'er they will, they restore your courage 5 they lead you in
their path for their namesake.
Yea, though you get into all kinds of scraps and fights, you should fear
no harm, for our Principal shall stand by you, her bluffs and her tongue
shall comfort youg you should be prepared for a scrap while in the presence
of your enemiesg you should anoint your head with blood, while in fear they
run awayg surely vict'ry and success shall follow you through all the days
of your school-life, and you shall be deserving the degree of SENIOR forever.

To the Public
The Creston High School Annual should be
in every home in Creston.
This work shows what can be done, when
earnest efforts are devoted to it-not only for
self, but for the good of the surrounding com-
We have profited, we think, by the mistakes
of others, we have continued the custom estab-
lished by the Class of '08g and, we' hope our
Juniors will continue to follow in the same strain,
which is a credit to all concerned.
A perusal of the contents of this book will
convey to the reader some idea of what we have
been doing in our High School.
The Class of 1909 has spared no time, labor,
or expense in the production of this Annual.
We wish YOU to take notice. This volume
is a complete change-not only as regards size
and shape, but as to contents also-from Vol-
ume I. Volume II has been enlarged to 36 pages
and changed to book' form-an improvement
over its precedent. The cover page is original
with the class of 1909 and speaks for itself.
The whole interior has been, as it were, remod-
eled, the ads. appearing in the backg and the
advertising section surely speaks well for the
business men of Creston. Another half-tone
has been added. The Board of Education, so
closely connected with the school, deserve a
place among our pages.
On the whole, do you not think it an eifort
on our part? We think that we have well put
to the test, our motto-" Impossible-Un-Amer-
Why not a Greater Creston?
Time was when the territory on which the city of Cres-
ton now stands was waste land 3 but it was soon cleared and
we are now enjoying the privileges granted us on this spot.
Every town and city in the State of Ohio is growing
and bettering their existing conditions, and "how do they
do it?" we ask. We say, " by modern improvements and
the efforts of wide-awake citizens."
In this day and age, marked improvements are going
on all about us, but if we are not up to the "call of the
times" we derive no benefit and " lose out."
You often hear, in regard to improvements, the follow-
ing: "Oh, it is too much expense. I haven't money to
burn." But is not such an expenditure all - for your good,
as well as the surrounding community? It places you on
the list of enterprising citizens and you are esteemed by
your neighbors and friends. Then, why not do something
Creston, while it has grown wonderfully in the last
25 years, has had nothing, comparatively speaking, to stim-
ulate its growth,
Now, it behooves Us to encourage the growth of this
little city. How shall we do it? Just a xnornent.
New, modern improvements are marks of prosperity.
The pavement, on one street only, has helped wonderfully
toward bettering and improving this city, and at the
same time, increasing the value of property. Recently,
much more attention has been paid to the beautifying of
Creston. And have we not received bounteous returns for
But why do we stop?
Creston has a bright future. With her three railways,
shipping facilities are beyond comparison 5 and with new
manufactures, population must increase.
Listen! We refuse a grant to a power and light com-
pany. Nothing attracts and presents an up-to-date appear-
ance, as does a good lighting system.
And, why do we not encourage new manufactures?
They are a credit to any city, and a growth of population
And we even refuse a competing telephone company a
franchise, when it is readily seen that conditions would be
Simply because we are afraid to undertake the risk, or
open our pocketbooks.
Instead of refusing, shelter them and give them a
,Make Creston attractive and beautiful. We have
reason to be proud of Creston, and it should have, to-day,
2000 inhabitants. '
But, let us change our ideas, and We will see a change.
Let 2000 be the cry.
