"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
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-
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.

brush man, and was very happy for she had 'a
brush for every use and occasion.

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.
