Qu , Class History "REMEMBER ME?" In September, 1935, thirty-one new freshmen be- came a part of Creston High School. One of the first things we did was to elect officers. For our president we chose Junior Romich, for secretary and treasurer, Emma Markley. Miss McCoy rendered her services as class adviser. We passed through our first year without much trouble, trying all the while to learn what it was all about. By May we thought we had a fairly good idea of what high school life was like so we said goodbye to one another till the fall of 1936, when we would advance to the sophomore class. September came and so did twenty-five of us to tackle our second year at Creston High. We elected oflicers on September 4, as follows: President, Harold Graf: secretary and treasurer, Kathleen Hummelg and class adviser, Mr. Gattshall. Our sophomore year passed quickly and without much excitement. We passed our exams with plenty of confidence, and va- cation came in no time at all. Soon it was September again. We came back to school thinking that we knew what we were here for. Organizing our class, we elected Fred Gliem, presi- dent: Grace Whonsetler, secretary and treasurer, and Miss Mcllvaine, class adviser. Our Junior Class play, "Bright and Early," which was a grand success, earned the money to banquet the seniors. The Presbyterian Guild served the din- ner, after which we enjoyed a show at Wooster. We studied more for our exams than usual that spring, for we all wanted to be in on the senior privileges, which, by the-way, we've never received. Well, here we are Seniors. Nineteen of us have returned to take the choice seats in the back of the study hall. We have chosen Harold Graf as presi- dent, Emma Markley as secretary, Virginia Walmer as treasurer and Miss Mcllvaine as class adviser. We have been very busy this year. Our class play, "Campus Quarantine," was made a success with the help of Mr. Frey. Another class project is the editing of the annual which will serve us as a book of memories. The class is also planning a week's trip to Gettysburg, Annapolis, and Washington. Throughout the four years of our high school life, the members of the class of '38 have been very active in music, athletics, and literary contests. We have brought not only honor to ourselves, but honor and glory to our school as well. The days that we will spend at Creston High are now growing few in number and we as members of the class of '38 feel that we owe a great debt to our school for giving us so many happy times. We shall never forget the years in Creston High no matter in what corner of the globe we find our 1ife's work. -Junior Romich. .-6.-..

Class Prophecy "l'VE HITCHED MY WAGON TO A STAR" While traveling through the Orient, I was at- tracted by a place called "Little Bit of Heaven." Here were many wishing Buddhas and crystal gazers, and I was allowed to peer into one of the large crys- tals. On doing so I saw the future, ten years hence, for the class of 1938. My enthusiasm was so great that I was immediately lost in this sphere. The first person whom I recognized was Kath- leen Hummel. Kathleen and I had started traveling together but when we reached Hollywood she decided to stay and become famous. She was shown operat- ing an exclusive dress shop called "Katy Kreationsf' William Michel was first drummer in Henry Bussie's orchestra. At present they were on a tour in Europe. Bill was having a hidden romance with Count de Cal- lorie's daughter Princess Karrot. I hope I return home in time to see them when they appear at the Lyric in Chicago. The next thing to catch my eye was a view of Creston, There was a new fire department, with three shiny new fire trucks, proudly operated by Ed- ward Morrison, the Fire Chief. There was a new Marshall-Fields Department Store and an Isaly Store. Eileen Henry had studied to be a nurse, but the crystal revealed her as the manager of the Isaly Store. Her greatest trade was in selling "crackless bubble gum" to the students of C. H. S. Gerald Bowman was sec- ond conductor on one of the Deisel streamlined trains. He sounds the whistle 19 times every time he passes through Creston-in memory of the 19 members of the class of '38. On peering further into the crystal I saw Fred Gliem. Fred had married an Akron girl and had settled down on the farm to spend his days in peace and contentment. Junior Romich had also taken to farm life, but he was still carrying on his hobby of Woodcraft. His home was completely furnished with his own woodworking. I know some day he will make a name for himself in this line. I recognized another familiar figure, Jean Boor. She was teach- ing child psychology in Ohio State University. Jean was not married for she had decided her career was far more important to her. Now there appeared in the crystal large letters which read, "Hot Dogs." Earl Fulton and Samuel Foltz were in partnership in a hot dog stand at Coney Island. Their best customer was an old pal, Harold Yoss, who operated a Fishing Pond right next to their stand. All three of the boys seemed to enjoy their work. My crystal gazing was here interrupted by an attendant who said that it was getting late and that after dusk the crystal would become so blurred that I would not be able to see the figures in it. I con- centrated upon the globe for the few remaining min- utes of light so I would not miss seeing any one of my friends. Harold Graf appeared before me. He was the proprietor of a chain of filling stations with his office in Canton. His success and wealth was due to a substance he called "Condensed Power." His ad- vertising slogan was "A hundred miles on a teaspoon- ful." The scene shifted and I found Virginia Walmer as a stenographer in one of the R. K. O. Radio Studios. Emma Markley was operating a Beauty Salon in Boston. Her specialty was "Face Lifting." Wayne Hunter was water boy' for the Cleveland Indians, but he was promised an advancement in the near future. Merlin Hartzler was auditor for the First National Banks of America. He was making his home in Den- ver with his devoted wife and mother-in-law. In the dim light I next saw Glenn Smith in a law office at Wooster. He had the reputation of never losing a case. To my great surprise I saw my own reflection in the crystal. I was modeling for Carson, Pirie, Scott, in Chicago. The blurred crystal refused to reveal any more secrets of the future, but it was a great prospect for the Class of 1938. More power to them. -Written by Grace Whonsetler. P. S.-Mary Snell was married to a Fuller- brush man, and was very happy for she had 'a brush for every use and occasion. .QT +4
