HE Creston High School Year Book of
1925. Published by the classes and or-
ganizations of C. H. S. under the aus-
pices of the Senior class.
N presenting this book to the public we believe that the plan of the'Year Book needs
a word of explanation. We are beginning this year what we believe is a reasonable'
custom: the custom of publishing ay less expensive record of High School events
every odd year, the more imposing Annual, "The Brown and Gold," to be published in
the even years. We trust that this plan will meet with the hearty approval of everyone
interested in our school
One word more, This Year Book is not a' result of the etforts of the Senior Class
only, but has been made possible by the fine spirit of cooperation of all the classes and
organizations of C. H. S. and of our advertisers, both local and foreign.

It seems a long time ago that we iirst entered High School, for the boys wore knee
trousers and the girls were in sho1't dresses, yes, even shorter than they are now. Peo-
ple gazed in wonder at the fifteen beautiful young ladies and the eighteen bold and dash-
ing young men, as they started in quest of the Fountain of Perfect Understanding. We
entered into a new world and found our surroundings most novel and interesting. The
first thing that seemed strange was having a different teacher for each subject and going
from room to room for recitations.
This was not nearly so bad as the strange and ferocious conduct of the Sophomores,
who pounced upon the boys, seemingly to destroy them, but for the girls they had only
the sweetest of smiles and sweets. In athletics most of our members were content to
sit and watch, but there were some adventurous souls who did, by their efforts, gain
much glory and hard bumps in baseball and basketball. And one tried delighting his
soul with music in the orchestra. We were all very brave that first year and did bear
ourselves proudly thru the tumult.
At the beginning of the Sophomore year our class had decreased somewhat in num-
ber, but there was a similar increase in spirit, for we did assault the Freshmen, even
as we were assaulted.. We entered more into the school activities, too. Four of 'our
number went out for basketball and two for baseball, while our president contributed
his valuable services to the debate team. Our musical member still remained in the or-
chestra, but did not remain still. Some of our number reaped much glory in play acting
and in our Junior year, the Athletic Association did present to the people a great play
called "Miss Cherry Blossom." The multitude cried out in their hearts, "Heaven for-
give them for they know not what they do," but aloud they said, "it is wonderful, beyond
all description." At that the heads of the class became swelled to a great size and they
prepared to murder other great plays. So the same year we put on "Wives to Burn,"
which was likewise a great sucess.
Many of our class did partake of sports this year. Four of our number were on the
baseball team, while five boys and three girls helped the basketball squads gain much
fame. We were well represented in declamation by Daisy Fullerton and on the de-
bate team by Earl Metz. The orchestra was increased in value by the presence of War-
ren Knepp and Leon Guthrie.
Never did we feel prouder than the day we entered school as Seniors. How differ-
ent everything seemed from that of three years before. We now had a
feeling of responsibility and a desire to'work exceedingly hard, which, unfortunately,
did not last long. Our boys and girls took part in the basketball games and came off
with many victories and bruises and loss of cuticle. Three of the class won much
glory for themselves and the debating team, while our two musical souls remained in
the orchestra. This year we put on the play, "When Jane Takes a Hand," with fine
success, and with the co-operation of the school, we have produced this year a school
book, called "The Year Book of 1925."
As the years went by our number kept decreasing until the final list of those who
are to receive the honors of Graduation is only sixteen, and in spite of mistakes and in'
descretions, we have successfully completed the course. Our aims, our inspirations
have been in a manner reached, but as we start a new year we shall still strive for
that perfection we hope to attain in the fullness of time.
Class Prophecy of! '25 r
My flivver was not acting right. It seemed as though it had quite a complication
of diseases, for it was whooping and coughing and sneezing all at once. Then it stop-
ped dead. It was right in the thick of the traflic in one of the largest cities and on one
of the busiest streets. A traffic cop came bustling toward me, shouting and cusslng as
I had never heard anyone before. I was thinking fast and was getting ready to tell him
all about a sick grandmother or something-I didn't know just what, when to my sur-
.. ' ,. 'W' N-. -A F T H F sv--F

prise, he smiled, and then I recognized him. It was Earl Metz. He had achieved his
life's ambition and was directing great throngs of people. He grasped my hand and
after the first greeting we became as gossipy as two old maids.
"Have you any idea of how the rest of the members of that brilliant class of 1925
are getting on," I asked. "I should say I do," he boomed. "They all own machines of
some kind and I see them nearly every day." "And, by the way, you remember Leon
Guthrie, don't you?" "Why, yes," I answered. "Well he is the fellow from whom they
get -their cars. He is a dealer in used cars and holds the agency for the great 'Punko
"What about Lee Marshall," I asked. "Somehow I always had an idea that he would
be president, or something like that." "He is," he returned. "He is president of the
'Great Consolidated Cheese Co.' and sure is making good."
Just then there passed us a little Chevrolet roadster, and to my surprise, there sat
Evalyn Fike beside the driver. She did not see us I am sure, for she kept right on going.
"Well," I said, "there is Evalyn, now where is Mary Murray?" Earl laughed. "Well,"
he said, "Although they are both married, they have a Beauty Shoppe and run it to-
gether. I suppose they always will stick by each other." Just then an electric sign
above a theatre caught my eye. In large letters it featured Daisie Fullerton as leading
lady in the show. He noticed my gaze and said, "Yes, Daisie has become one of the
best actresses in the ,world and has become a great success."
"How about the twins of the class,T' I asked. "Oh, yes," he said. Lois is the wife
of the head mechanic in Leon Guthrie's garage and Louise is a teacher in the same
school where Warren Knepp is professor of Bugoligyf' Just then the traliic became
so eonjested and the honking of horns became so loud that he had to leave and try to
staighten things out.
Another otllcer appeared, and with his help they straightened out the traffic, and as
Lizzie was feeling better, I started her and run her over to the curb. The other cop
relieved Metz and together we walked down the street.
"You remember Helen Snell and Hazel Yoder, don't you?" he asked. "Well," he
said, "Helen and Hazel together own and run one of the largest poultry farms in this
part of the country. Helen takes care of the country end of the business and Hazel
handles all of the business in the city." "That certainly is fine," I said, "But what ot
"Oh, yes," he said, "Maude is married and has a model home. Her husband, I be-
lieve, is one of the head men on the P. 8: G. Railroad."
"And Viola Ringler?" I asked, "What of her?" "Do you remember how shy and
bashful she used to be? You should see her now," he said. "She is the Wife of a well
known business man back in Creston, and if you were to see them together you would
not think she was bashful any more." We were passing the Police station, in one sec-
tion of which was the Court room. "I must go in and report," said Metz, "It I were
you I would go in the court room and listen awhile."
As I approached the court room I saw that a trial was about over. The jury was
just returning with the verdict. The foreman stood up and said impressively: "Not
Guilty." There was a wild scream as the mother of the liberated boy rushed over to
her lawyer to thank him. As he stood up a shout went up from the crowd, and as he
turned to bow his acknowledgment I saw, Jack Adams, who had found the place nature
fitted him for. That made me think of Dorothy Knepp, and when Otflcer Metz returned
I asked him about her. "Oh," he said, "She is the wife of a great lawyer and is a great
help to him. He has so much practice at home, you know." We departed from the
building and as we walked down the street to where my flivver was parked, Metz ask-
ed me to go home with him for the rest of the day.
"No," I replied, "I must be getting on. I must be in the next town by this evening
to put over a business deal." So starting Lizzie, who was now entirely reconciled, I
drove out through the town and into the country. And as I,drove I marveled at life
and its progress until Lizzie ran out of gas and quit progressing. Then I had to get out
and progress on foot until I got some gas.

Junior Class Activities
PRESIDENT-Robert Norton VICE PRESIDENT-Gladys Bowman
SECRETARY-DeVere Shannon TREASURER-Merle Grlner
During the flrst week of school the Junior class gave their new friends, the Freshles,
a weiner roast. Both classes met at the school house and then went to Killbuck, where
we played games. On account of rain it was necessary to rush to the school building
and partake of the eats. All report an interesting evening.
There were two surprise parties held during the year. The first was on September
fifteenth at the home of Ruth Jordan, and the other at Gladys Bowman's on January
second. At both places beautiful presents were received. Lovely luncheons were
served and a good time was enjoyed by all. '

PRESIDENT-Vera Stutzman SECRETARY-TREASU RE R--Gertrude Fouche
On September the flrst, nineteen hundred and twenty-four, twenty-four verdant
Freshmen grabbed their stocking caps, books and pencils, and started toward the
school house, with knocking knees and throbbing hearts. After many scrimmages with
Sophomores and Seniors, we at last crept silently to our room. Everything was new,
especially the ,assembly hall. Here we were greeted with loud cries and stamping of
feet. No one told us about the change of classes and for the first couple of days we
were too green to leave our seats and go to the study hall. Of course we thought the
joke was on our teachers, but we later found out that we were the ones fooled.
Our work went very well and being of a rather cautious nature, we took care not
to tax ourselves too heavily with study: needless to say, no one was sent to the doctor
for overworklng his brain.
The year was spent in our school work, parties, weiner roasts and hikes.
We lost one member of our class, Ray Webb, who moved to Kenmore. Vera Stutz-
man took his place.
The Freshmen girls who went out for basketball were Edith Smith, Gertrude Fouch,
Mary Morrow, Naomi Curry, Maxine Repp and Vera Stutzman. The last two succeeded
in getting in as "subs" and will try again next year as we will lose some players.
The boys, too, went out for athletics, though not so successful in basketball, they
later succeeded in becoming sturdy stays of our baseball team. Those on the team
were Robert Hawk and Kennith Knecht.
And now, as the school year draws to a close, we are looking forward to the future
when we shall be Sophomores and shall laugh at the same mistakes that we once made.

Boys' Basketball-Season 1924-25
The Creston High School boys had a successful season in basketball. winning thir-
teen out of twenty games played.
The first game was with Sterling at Creston. Creston was defeated 6 to 12 in a hard
Creston won two games on friday and Saturday, Dec. 12 and 13. The first from
Congress, 31 to 213 the second from Rittman, the first time in several seasons, 19 to 14.
Creston defeatd Doylestown, Dec. 19, by the large score of 49 to 17.
Creston's second defeat was with Seville, Jan. 9, 14 to 16.
On Thursday, Jan. 10, the second game with Congress again resulted in a victory
for Creston, 36 to 12.
Apple Creek at Apple Creek, Jan. 16. Creston was the winner. 27 to 7. Saturday
night, Jan. 17, Creston and Burbank. Creston winners, 32 to 22. This closed the week
with two victories.
Creston's third defeat of the season was with Sterling, Jan. 23 by a score of 19to 12.
Creston won from Seville at Creston, Jan. 30, by a score of 33 to 20, thus avenging
the early season defeat.
Feb. 6 Creston journeyed to Doylestown and defeated them 38 to 20.
Feb. 20 Creston made a big trip to Berea, and were defeated by them by a score of
31 to 17. Thus it maks four defeats so far this season.
Feb. 21 Creston defeated Apple Creek at home, 28 to 10.
Creston journeyed to Rittman Feb. 27 and was defeated, 24 to 23, in what was per-
haps the most exciting game witnessed by the Creston fans during the entire season.
Rittman led by eight points at the end of the first half, but the Creston crew, altho han-
dicapped by the injury of Jack Adams, came back strong and all but beat Rittman in the
final minute of play.
Coach Mong worked hard to get the team in shape for the Ashland tournament at
Ashland, March 6. Creston played Bellville and defeated them 24 to 7. Spencer was
next and Creston won from them 14 to 7. Spencer was the Medina county champs.
Then came the snag when the taller Lucas team defeated Creston in the semi-finals, 21
Coach Mong's next big task was to get the team in shape for the Wayne county tour-
nament at Wooster. The first games were on Saturday, March 14. Here Creston de-
feated Dalton, 13 to 10, and next won from West Salem, 21 to 3. The next Saturday,
March 21, Creston played Rittman in the semi-finals and was defeated, 15 to 12. This
closed the season for Creston High.
The remarkable season which Creston High had, was due in a great measure to the
fact that they were able to have Mr. Gerald Mong for coach. He is the one who put the
boys on their feet and gave all his knowledge, patience and energy in developing the
team that was so successful. The loyal support of the school and community and the
fine spirit displayed by the boys themselves, were also important factors in the great
showing of the team.
In the Inter-Class tournament the first game was Sophomores vs. Freshmen. The
Sophomores won 7 to 4. The Juniors and Seniors played and the Seniors were victorius,
9 to 1. This left the Sophomores and Seniors in the tourney. It was necessary for the
Seniors to play hard to defeat the Sophomores, 8 to 5. This made the Seniors cham-
pions for the second year, as they were champions in their Junior year.

Girls' Basketball-Season 1924-Z5
The Girls' Basketball team of Creston High School had a very successful season
this year. Due to the fact that several new players were on the team, the opening half
of the season did not look very promising and nearly all defeats resulted for Creston.
but under the coaching of Miss Harrison, and the flne support of the student body of C.
H. S., we rapidly improved, and brought to C. H. S. the last six games of the season as
complete victories for us.
The first game of the season was with Sterling on Dec. 5. It was a losing fight but
well played, the score being 28 to 8.
The second game was with Congress on Dec. 12, this we won, 21 to 13.
The next evening, Dec. 13, we played Rittman and did our best, but they won 15 to 12.
On Dec. 19 we met Doylestown on the home floor and were defeated, 21 to 9.
The next game was with our old enemy, Seville, on the Seville floor. We were
again defeated by a score of 15 to 8.
The following night, Jan. 10, we played Congress on the home floor, we completely
outplayed them, winning by a score of 34 to 8.
On Jan. 16 we journeyed to Apple Creek. Although we were defeated by
five points, we kept Apple Creek on the jump until the whistle blew.
On the seventeenth of January we played Burbank on the home floor. This was one
game in which we were completely outplayed, being defeated, 25 to 12.
Creston again met Sterling at Sterling on Jan. 23. We were again badly defeated.
The score was 37 to 10.
On Jan. 30 we met Seville on our own floor. This time we proved to S. H. S. that C.
H. S. was on the map. VVe won by a score of 23 to 8.
Creston played their second game with Doylestown on Feb.6, and we came home vic-
torius by a score of 17 to 13.
Feb. 20, we played Apple Creek on the home floor. This was probably the most in-
teresting game of the season. The score was tied until the last minute and then Cres-
ton won by a score of 15 to 13.
On Feb. 27, we traveled to Rittman, and as it was the last game, Creston girls de-
cided to make it a victory, which we did, by a score of 26 to 9.
On March 14 the C. H. S. girls entered the Wayne county basketball tournament
with lots of pep and a strong determination to win the games of that day. This determi-
nation was carried out and we came home that day with two victories: one from Dalton,
20 to 11, and one from Burbank, 13 to 8.
The next Saturday we returned to Wooster to play the semi-flnals of the tourney.
In this game Mt. Eaton defeated us by a score of 14 to 8.
Following the usual custom, we again held a High School Class Tourney in the
gym on March 27. The first game. between the Freshman and Sophomore classes, was
4 to 2 in favor of the Freshmen. The second game, between the Junior and Senior
classes was won by the Juniors, 28 to 3. The finals, between the Freshmen and Juniors
resulted in a score of 35 to 8, making the Juniors winners of the tourney.

Schar was compelled to resign. Mr. Teachout. u graduate of the Dana School of Music,
succeeded her, and up to the end of the term, the orchestra was under his direction. A
marked improvement was noticeable the last part ol' the year and the orchestra has
furnished music for debates and the Senior Class play. We have a fine group of musi-
cians, and under the efficient leadership of Mr. Teachout, now have an orchestra that

to leave for their home in New York. Jane's father returns from New York, where he
was unsuccessful in securing the deed to a mine in which he had placed all of his mon-
ey. The deed is held by a boyhood friend, John Mortimer, but. the two have been ene-
mies since Dare's marriage to the girl whom they both loved. After the Potlingtons
leave, Jane and Mammy Josephine decide to accept Mrs. PotI'lugton's invitation and stay
at her home in New York while making an attempt to secure the deed.
ACT II-Scene: Living room in the Poflington home. In September. Mrs. Pofllng-
ton, fearing that Jane might spoil Amelia's chances with Jimmie Mortimer, decides to
leave immediately on an extended visit before Jane arrives. Just as they are about to
leave, Jimmie calls to tell them that he has quarreled with his father, has been disowned
and is assuming the name of James Mason. When Jane arrives she finds the Pofilng-
tons gone and no one there but the maid, Mrs. Bates, who is crying because she has been
discharged without notice and will have difficulty finding another place on account of
her age. Acting on Mammy Josephine's suggestion, they decide to open an exclusive
boarding house, utilizing the Pofilngton home for this purpose.
ACT III-A week later. Archie is a bell-hop and Mammy Josephine is a "Real
Southern Cook." James Mason sees the sign outside and comes in to find out about ac-
commodations. Jimmie is immediately attracted by Miss Dare and willingly offers to
assist her in managing the place. The boarders soon begin to arrive. First comes Mr.
Smith, who is also attracted by Miss Dare. He is followed by the aristocratic Mrs. Jen-
kins and her daughter, Henrietta. Then comes Mr. Henry P. Bartlett, the "gas king"
from Canaan Center, Ohio, accompanied by his wife and daughter, Evangeline. Mr.
Pendleton, another boarder, surprises Mrs, Bates by asking her to have tea with him at
the Mansion House. Jimmie overhears Jane telling Mammy Josephine that she is going
to try to get the deed that night, and hears Mammy suggest that she take Mr. Mason
with her. He offers his assistance and tells her he would drive HER to the North Pole.
ACT IV-Several days later. Jane wires her father that she has secured the deed
and receives word that he is on his way to New York. Jane then finds that Jimmie is
Mr. Mortimer's son and that his father is on their trail. Mr. Pendleton and Mrs. Bates
enter and surprise everyone by announcing that they have been married. They de-
cide to have a wedding feast in celebration. Mr. Dare arrives from the South and
shortly after, Mr. Mortimer appears on the scene. Jimmie tells his father of his love
for Jane. At first Mr. Mortimer objects strenuously, but when he sees Jane he not only
makes up with his old friend, Henry Dare, but he also tells Jimmie that he will give
him 550,000 the day he marries her. While they are all enjoying the wedding feast,
Mrs. Potfington and Amelia unexpectedly return. Everything is explained to them and
Amelia shows her spite by saying to Archie, "Well, I declare, there's that little black
imp from Virginia." And Archie declares mischievously, "Why, how pufhckly ree-dick-

T I: RAR
Any record of the school year 1924-25, which failed to mention the fine work of Miss
Ruth Jordan, our High School ora.tor, would be woefully incomplete. Even in her Fresh-
man year Ruth demonstrated her Ciceronian ability by winning not only the local pre-
liminary contest but also the event against Rittman. Such a record is an honor that
seldom falls to the lot of a freshman.
This year showed a marked increase in Ruth's power as a speaker. Gifted with a
pleasing personality, a remarkable voice, and above all, a spirit which thinks not of
self but of school, Ruth ranked high among the contestants from the entire county.
Her oration, "The Simple Life," was a masterpiece both in conception and delivery:
we believe that Ruth was able to write and deliver this oration so effectively because
it is a reflection of her own life and thoughts.
Creston High is justly proud of Ruth's efforts this year and is looking hopefully
for her greater success next year.
Oratory in C. H. S.
The reputation of C. H. S. in all kinds of foren ics is not based upon an idle fancy:
her orators have always been among the leaders ii the county. It has been the policy
of the school to encourage these activities, since it believes that the ability to express
oneself in public is a part of one's education that should not be neglected.
In many respects the present school year has been one of the most successful in the
history of forensics in C. H. S. True it is that C. H. S. did not win the Wayne Coun-
ty oratorical contest: but judged from the standpoint of the great interest shown by
the many students who "went out, for" oration, this year surpassed all others as far
back as anyone can remember. Eight persons participated in the local preliminary
contest which was held early in March for the purpose of selecting the student who
would have the honor of representing C. H. S. in the county oratorical contest. The
competition was keen, all the orations being excellent, both as to subject matter and
delivery. The decision of the judges fell to Miss Ruth Jordan, who so ably represented
the school in the County Contest held at Orrville in the early part of April. Ethel
Irvin was second with her line oration on "Literature"

tion considered was: "Resolved: That the proposed twentieth amendment to the Con-
stitution be adopted." As a result the following teams were chosen:
Afflrmative-Dorothy Kneppg Charlotte Reppg Warren Knepp, Captain, Gladys
Negative-Lee Marshall, Quentin Beal, Earl Metz, Captain, DeVere Shannon.
Instead of meeting Rittman in a dual debate as was customary heretofore, County
Superintendent Gibbens arranged three rounds of debate which included all the High
Schools in the county, and all would debate for the County Championship. The tlrst
round of debate was a dual debate and Creston was to meet Sterling. It was also de-
cided that the negative team would remain at home and the afllrmative team would
meet Sterling's negative at Sterling. The first round of debates came on March 10. It
was a rainy night, but that did not keep back those who were interested. After a few
selections by the High School Orchestra, the debate was held. The negative convinced
the judges that the proposed twentieth amendment should not be adopted, and our
affirmative team convinced them at Sterling that it should be adopted, and both teams
were awarded a unanimous decision.
Just one of the members of last year's teams was back this year, the rest being
new in debate. However, a large part of this year's success must be credited to Mr.
Linerode, the coach, for he willingly gave both his time and energy in training the teams.
On March the twentieth, a triangular debate was arranged between Creston, Bur-
bank and Chester, all being winners in the first round of debate. Creston's negative met
Chester, and the afllrmative met Burbank on Creston's floor. Both teams worked hard
to win, but through some irony of fate, we were not able to take this round. The atflrfn-
ative won over Burbank by a decision of the judges, two to one, and the negative lost
to Chester, two to one. It was a hard fought debate and the judges score-cards showed
that the decision was close.
Although Creston had lost in the' second round, they took their defeat like sports,
and felt that though they had lost by a judges decision, the good they had reaped from
them would never be lost. Earl Metz.

Les Hiboux de Nuit
MOTTO-Nul bien sans peine. tNo pains, no gains.J
COLORS-Rouge et blanc lred and whitej
Les "Hiboux de Nuit" was organized by the French II Class on December 8, 1924.
The constitution was put up for approval and was passed by a unanimous vote. Ofllcers
were nominated and the result of the election was as follows: Lee Marshall, President:
Daisie Fullerton, Secretary and Treasurer. Miss Brillhart, teacher of foreign language,
was appointed as Honorary President.
After a strenuous brain-racking, we finally decided on the name, "Les Hiboux de
Nuit," which means in plain English, "The Night Owls." The "Owls" then adjourned
and on the way home Mlle. Brillhart treated the hungry flock to sandwiches, after
which all the "Owls" went hooting home.
The second meeting was held at the home of Mlles. Louise and Lois Carpenter, on
January 5, 1925. While waiting for the two male members, Mlle. Brillhart told to us
the "wonders" of "The Miracle." M. Metz and M. Marshall came strutting in just in
time to tell us the greatest "wonder." After the "storm" we read at sight from "Le
Tour de la France." Delightful refreshments were served and the "Owls took flight.
On February 14, 1925, the "Owls" entertained themselves at a dinner held at the
school house. After the dinner the two male members took Mlle. Brillhart and Mlle.
Fullerton a ride on the "whip." After the ride, while the two ladies were figuring out
which way was which, one male member sneaked out 'with the rest of the flock and
locked the door. The other male member, being a captive with the two ladies, suc-
ceeded in crawling out of the window and setting the two ladies free. The tired "Owls"
then went home to get a good night's sleep. tRather strange for an owl, isn't it?J
The club, consisting of eight charter members, decided tb hold one more meeting
in the near future to initiate the French I Class into the club in order that it might be
continued next year. L. E. C.

On Sept. 12, '24, A. M., teams were selected for the "Pole Rush" and "Tug of War",
to be held in the P. M. of the same day. The "Green and White" with the "Old Rose and
Black" took the honors of the day. They barely won the first period of the "Tug of War,"
but the second was a plain walk-away. The first period of the Pole Rush, the "Purple
and Gold" with the "Scarlet and Gray" were put up with Freshmen and Juniors defend-
ing the pole-But thanks to the Senior and Sophomore husky lads, Warren Knepp or
"Snapper", went up the pole and handed down the enemy's colors. Honors to the Se-
niors and Sophomores for the first period. At the beginning of the second period, the
"Old Rose and Black" and the "Green and White" were put up with the Sophomores
and Seniors defending. These fellows are sure some defenders, for not one man on
the opposing side could climb the pole three feet before they were haul-
ed down. Honors to the Seniors and Sophs! !! These colors still being up, the Seniors
and Sophs defended the pole for the third and last period. After some rough scrapping,
Nelson' Glessner fBillyJ went up that pole like a cat and down came the proud "Green
and White" - "Old Rose and Black." But Seniors and Sophs were sports enough to
give their so far defeated opponents the credit due them for their last struggling effort.
Never.the-less, the Seniors and Sophs had seventy-five points out of one hundred for the
Pole Rush. Those fellows can fight! !! Those girls can yell!!!

"MY IDEAL WIFE" '
If the woman whom I marry turns out to be my ideal wife, she will not be ten years
older than me. I can't go much for length, because I am pretty short myself. She will
have a magnolius complection and hair to match. She will be willing to work when the
financial need calls for it. She will do the arguing for me, because any woman is posted
on any subject, or at least it appears that way. She will love, obey and support me.
We studie English Literatur,
Not to lern how to spelg
But to get some beter ideas
About Heaven and of-wel,
The things people usta do,
And how they used their grammar to.
Take for instance the finest thots
That hav ben put in verse,
The Author seemed to murmur: "Whats
The way to spel this wurse?"
That's the way all authors do
So yhy can't me and you?
Now Shakespeare wrote a Iota stuff
That has undying fame,
But Shakespeare didn't know enuf
To writely spel his nam
And Shakespeare was a faimous man
Why can't we be the saim?
Take old Giff Chosser-he who gave
Good poesy its start
Accordin to the way he spels
He couldn't hav ben so smart.
If we all speled like him, we'd
Give our teachers quite a start.
And so lets spel in off hand stile
Just as we go along
And naturally most all the time
We'l1 get our speling rong,
And then we'll all bee faimous
In word and poem and song.
PARENT-TEACHERS BANQUET GREAT SUCCESS
A banquet was held at the Creston School on the evening of February sixth. The
ladies of the town, assisted by some of the accomplished cooks ot C. H. S., served a de-
licious meal, after which a boy's basketball game entertained. This game was followed
by a girls' mock basketball game. As soon as the games were over, nearly all gathered
in the auditorium for a short program, which under the excellent directorship of Miss
Brlllhart, was very flue. The program consisted of a play and two readings, one by
Miss Daisie Fullerton, and the other by Miss Brillhart, who gave "The Meechin Ro-
mance." The program over, everyone depaxted for their homes, concluding that the
evening had been well spent.
SHAKESPEARIAN READER ENTERTAINS
The High School, Faculty and seventh and eighth grades were entertained by a
Shakespearian reader on the afternoon of February third. He acted out passages from
"The Merchant of Venice," "Macbeth" and others.

SENIOR BENEFIT SHOWS
On the evening of February tenth, the Seniors gave their first Year Book Benefit
Show. Th main feature was "Boy of Mine," with Ben Alexander in the title role.
Special musxc was provided for the pleasure of the audience. Alan Romich, DeVere
Shannon, Norris Broomall and Virginia Sellers made up the orchestra which rendered
several entertaining selections. Besides these numbers, Norris Broomall played a saxo-
phone solo and Alan Romich a violin solo. "The Senior Warblersj' in other words,
Dorothy Knepp, Daisie Fullerton, Emmett Adams and Earle Long, sang "Boy of Mine',,
a song that goes hand in hand with the movie which was being shown. The financial
result of this show was quite satisfactory. Aproxirnately 175 tickets were sold in ad-
vance, and almost that many at the door. The class made 527.90 on this one night.
March third, the Senior Class staged their second Year Book Benefit Show. "Rug-
gles of Red Gap," was the feature this time. Mr. D. D. Pfouts played the piano during
the evening and Miss Alta Brillhart gave a reading, "Billy Brag in the Big Lie"
The third and last Year Book Benefit Show was "The Silent Pardner", shown on
March twenty-third. Margaret Winters played the piano for the evening. Between the
comedy, "Pardon My Glove," and the feature, Earl Metz thanked the audience in behalf
of the Class for their support and introduced Sam and Bill in "Safety Razors First."
Earle Long and Lee Marshall did very well as black face comedians. During the first in-
termission in the feature, Daisie Fullerton gave a reading, "Cold." The Class cleared
815.00 at this last show. Altogether they made 357.55 which will help them a great deal
in editing the Year Book. Daisle

RUBE DAY BIG SUCCESS
This year "Rube Day" went off as per schedule on the first of April. "Rube Days"
have come and gone, but this one was the best of all. The order of the day: 9 a. m.-
Songs, directed by "Josiah Kirby," otherwise Dusty VVebb. Vocal selections by the
Hermanville Quartet. Regular routine until 12 m. 1 p. m., the "Rubee" paraded from
the School House to the B. KL 0. R. R. tracks and return.
ADOPTION OF HIGH SCHOOL JEWELRY STANDARD
Creston High School has made another step towards an ideal high school. The
student body has adopted a standard design for all its class jewelry. They should be
complimented on their forsighted decision as its benefits are many.
The Baccalaureate Sermon by Rev. S. Lee Whiteman, was given in the School
Auditorium on May seventeenth. His topic was, "Knights of a New Day." Prayer and
Scripture by Rev. W. A. Sears. Music was rendered by members of the M. E. church
and the Presbyterian church.
The Commencement Exercises of the Class of 1925, were held in the School Audi-
torium on the evening of May 22. The Class was very fortunate in securing as their
speaker, Rev. W. W. Bustard, a retired minister of the Euclid Avenue Baptist church, of
Cleveland. Speaker's from the Class were: Lee Marshall, Valedictoriang Louise Car-
penter, Salutatoriang Earle Long, Historian and Prophetg Earl Metz, Orator. Music was
furnished by Eberwein's Orchestra. The Class sang "Commencement Song," after
which the diplomas were presented.

UNUSUAL OPPORTUNITIES OFFERED AT
THE OBERLIN BUSINESS COLLEGE
The great place which the Oberlin Business College has come to occupy is of inter-
est to the members of our present senior class and especially to those intending to en-
ter a business college. A business education is absolutely essential to those who wish
to enter upon a business career, while those who go to college and later to professional
school are greatly handicapped without a knowledge of business affairs. It would pai'
every high school graduate to spend a year in a first class business college before en-
tering college or professional school.
The Oberlin Business College stands at the head of business training schools. It ls
the only business college in Ohio in which graduation from high school or its equivalent
is its entrance requirement. High school graduates can accomplish vastly more in a
school offering advanced courses suited to their needs than in business schools many of
whose students have had little or no high school training. It was the first business col-
lege to be placed upon the Accredited list of Ohio Colleges by the State Department of
Public Instruction. Graduates of its two-year Teachers' Course receive state Certificates.
It is also a member of the National Association of Accredited Schools.
