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.

, Page 6 C The Creston High School i l 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. 4 4 i f i N 1 i I W i i i i Lmmxs , ., .

Page 8 Searchlight of Publicity. ' By Miles H. Beniamin. A man without a good searchlight is out of harmony with the world and never should expect any great success. To have a good searchlight he should be educated, not chiefly a high school and university training, but learn the movements of this age first handed. This he will learn before he comes in contact with many people, for this world is full of many, who have different views of life, theories and methods for their own welfare. The sun is recognized as the greatest light that exists and with its great magnitude and force its power is felt all over the universe, even the animal and vegetable kingdoms would not endure long without it's life-giving influence. The influence of great public lights is felt all over the land, whether it be of high or low standard. With the past in proper condition, the future will be sure and safe. This country becomes wild over military lights. Most all the leading characters of America have attain- ed fame in military life. s -r sf -If is Shakespeare, the greatest light in English Literature, was not contented with o11e phase of life, but was not satis- fied until he developed the panorama of life 5 he searched for characters and passions that would interest all classes of society.. ar Ik if wk wk A man when he starts out in this world is likened unto a ship on the stormy ocean, and, without the strong light from the tower and the life saving crew, would be the cause of its destruction and downfall. Then a man without some great light to influence him or without good books to search would find hard struggling, if he ever reached his chosen position. When people looking for their position in life and knowing their own powers in character would adopt some of Gen. Grant's ambition and perserverance, they would become a greater success, as far as this temporal life is con- cerned, for Grant while trying to force his way through the South lost thousands of Union men in the Battle of the lVilderness. It was then that he said, " that he would fight it out on this line if it took all summer. For all these temporal labors and troubles are only a means by which we are to prove whether or not we are to gain that eternal resting place. The Bible, the standard light of all ages, has stood for many years and will stand to the end of time. The circumstances and lessons it contains are practical and can be utilized in every-day life. ' Ill -li' il- ll! 4 To become a star in any profession we choose, we should strive to out-due all competitors, then we will shine forth and our light will be sought after by all men. ' A " I am a part of all that I have metg Yet all experience is an arch wherethro' Gleams that untravel'd world, whose margin fades Forever and forever when I move. How dull it is to pause, to make an end, To rust unburnished, not to shine in usel As tho' to breathe were life." The Night Brings Out the Stars. Helen E. Tuttle. As we look back over our lives, we find that they have not been all brightness and sunshine. For we have our struggles at times, but they are only preparing us for some- thing brighter and better. What we call evils, as poverty, neglect and suffering, are, if we are wise, only opportunities for good. If we but have the right mind, all things, even those that hurt, help us. " That which befits us, says Emerson, embosomed in beauty and wonder as we are, is cheerfulness and courage, and the endeavor to realize our aspirations." May we not make the stars, the mountains, and all enduring earth min- ister to tranquility of the soul, to elevation of the mind, and to patient striving. e -k 'I' 'R ' -lt al: It is easy to work hard when success is coming our way, and the stars are shining. But when everything seems to hinder us in the progress we desire, and there is so much to discourage us, and so little to hope for, it is then work be- comes doubly hard, but at such times as these we must work the harder in order to see glorious results crown our efforts. Everyone has some duty to perform in this world, and we should not be so stupid as not to see the place that is waiting for us to fill, which no one else can fill for us. So let us always be looking for the bright light and make an honest, manful and humble effort to succeed. -lb wk -n- -r -le When we meet disappointments we should not be dis- couraged but work on so that the stars will penetrate thru the night. -le 'lf 1 -le me We as Americans ought to appreciate the noble and grand work our fore-fathers have done for us in maintain- ing and preserving our Union in order that we may now enjoy many privileges and see how thru their hard strug- gles that the stars shone out brightly. 'lf YF 'lf lk I' We never reach the doors of success by chance, we must gain it either thru sheer trouble, or by misfortune upon misfortune, this is one thing that we must work for, and tunnel our way thru the darkness and night in order to see the brightness and receive our reward for patient striv- ings. M 1 Mather once said: "Our opportunities to do good are our talents." We should make the best out of them. No matter in what business we are following, we should always look to see the shining of the stars, for they "are gems of Heaven that gild night's sable throne." So let us have "Courage, brother, do not stumble, Though our path be dark as night, There's a star to guide the humble, Trust in God and do the right."
