C The Creston High School
HE year 1908 will long be remembered by those citizens of
A Creston who are deeply interested in educational affairs,
as a record-breaker.
A representative of State Inspector of Workshops and Factor-
ies inspected our old building and ordered many repairs and
changes, such as fire-escapes, new floors, more exits, etc.
' With Creston's growth it brought more pupils into the school,
hence in several rooms there was a congested condition. After
thoroughly discussing the conditions, the Board of Education de-
cided to call a public meeting of our citizens and lay the matter
before them and ascertain whether the majority of our citizens
thought best to go ahead and repair and otherwise relieve the con-
gested condition, or to build new. The majority favored the form-
er proposition, so the Board asked the citizens for authority to
bond the town in the sum of 34300 which they considered necessary
to make the repairs contemplated, and at an election duly held a
very large majority of our citizens voted to bond the town in the
above sum for said purpose.
The Board of Education, with all the haste allowed by law,
made preparations to build an addition to the High School building
and make the repairs necessary. After expending about 34000,
and in about six weeks from the time of beginning, the buildings
were ready for occupancy.
The representative of the State Inspector's oiiice said "that
our building was one of the safest in his whole district," every
room having from two to four exits.
The Board of Education has also made a start to beautify the
grounds by grading, seeding and planting trees, building fences,
etc., and with proper care, in a few years Creston will have one of
the most beautiful school sites in this part of Ohio.
, The Board of Education asks the co-operation of our citizens
to make Creston's schools second to none in this part of our belov-
ed state. - '
W. K. BECHTEL,
Clerk of Board of Education.

Salute to Class '09.
By Emma Troutman
Here's to our Senior class,
Here's to every lovely lass,
Here's to every manly lad,
Here's to the good times we've had.
In our president we bring to you
Ralph Jordan, a young man true
To himself and othersg ever working,
And never from his duty shirking.
Hazel Tuttle is a Winsome lass,
The musician of our Senior class.
To her we owe many a pleasant hour,
That she lightened with this, her power
We have a Ruby in our throng,
We have not had her very long.
But she's a gem of the purest hues
That we would not well wish to lose.
There's Miles Benjamin, a young lad,
Who, if Roosevelt could have had
In his daring Rough Rider band,
He'd had another horse well mann'd.
Helen Tuttle our class admires
For her pluck that never tiresg
She to others can hereafter say,
My school hours were not spent iniplay.
If Paul Matteson appears 'to be
A fellow happy-go lucky and free,
His heart, however's in the right place,
And that is more than half the race.
Edgar McDermott is our class wit,
He's not stingy with it, not one bitg
To keep up with his jolly pace
He would lead you a merry race.
And Helen Cole, we find that she
Is a student as perfect as one could beg
In this world the smile on her face
Will win for her many a happy place.
But, here's to our Senior class,
Here's to every lovely lass,
Here's to every manly lad,
And here's to the good times we've had
ummm A not in ,Is s ,MM .J
