GUPPY WRITES A BIOGRAPHY--
. Class History
The third day of September, 1935, is a day which will long be remembered by
all members of Creston High School, for on that day the class of '39 entered high
We will have to admit that we were at first a little bewildered and shy in the
presence of so many dignified and older pupils, but we soon recover-ed and became
adapted to this new life.
Our class of thirty-three members was permitted to organize. Whom did we
elect but that bashful little blond, Jay Lehman, for our presidentg Zella Scholl, vice
presidentg Bernice Meyer, secretary and treasurer, and Miss McCoy, a much needed
adviser. We chose green and white as our class colors. The next thing o-f import-
ance was the sack rush with the sophomores, which we are very proud to say we won.
An initiation party was given for us on September 133 everybody thought we were
so small that the initiation was rather mild, however, the party was a great success.
This life was so different and exciting that before we knew it, May had come and
our first year in high school was ended.
In the fall we came back, not feeling so shy and unimportant. We found that
Raymond Lee and Evelyn Eby were not with us, but we had two new members, Ray-
:nond Weahry and John Jacquet, so we still had our big class of thirty-three. VVe
again elected officers, as we learned was the custom to do every year. This time
Jack Plank was elected to lead our class and Jay Lehman became his assistantg Ber-
nice Meyer was again elected secretary and treasurer. Mr. Gattshall kindly con-
sented to be adviser. On September 11 we had another sack rush, this time with
the freshmen. Again we won. The outstanding event of that year was the local one-
act play contest. We shared honor for first place with the freshmen. We helped
our school that year by supplying some good athletes, and everyone seemed to enjoy
high school life very much.
Once more September came but we were very sorry to find that our class roll
had decreased to twenty-nine. Raymond Campbell, John Jaquet, Marjorie- Double and
Mona Carnes had left us. Later in the year Reba Woodward's leaving reduced thc
number to twenty-eight. We were very much surprised to see that our high school
had increased in size, the seventh and eighth grad-e had joined us to make a junior
high. Our class organized again, with no changes except Betty Perram to serve as
secretary and treasurer.
The time for us to get our class sweaters came and we just could not agree on
the color we wanted. We argued about a week and then decided on brown and
orange iwe wanted to be different, I wonder if we werel. Jack Plank and Jay Leh-
man represented our high school in the county declamation contest. Jack won second
place and Jay stood very high. Our class was again well represented in athletics
Our class play, "Lady Spitfire" fwith the help of Mr. Freyl, was a real success.
We earned more than enough money from it to give the Seniors a very nice banquet.
The ladies of the Jackson Presbyterian Church served the dinner after which we
enjoyed a show at Schine's Theater in Wooster. By the end of this exciting year w-e
were all ready for a vacation.
Coming to school in the fall as Seniors, we felt very dignified to be able to oc-
cupy the seats in the back of the study hall. Mr. Frey had organized a student coun-
cil for the high school and we elected Clayton Shankland and James Miracle as mem-
bers of it from our clam. We were very glad to see that we had two new members,
Robert Fetzer and Donald Boyes, thus making a class roll of thirty. Officers were
elected as usual: Jay Lehman, president: Jack McGuff, vice presidentg Bernice Meyer,
treasurerg Frances Blough, secretary: and Mr. Gattshall still our adviser.
We will not have thirty to graduate after all, because Nylah Schmollinger has
Our class play "Spring Fever" came in November this year. Mr. Frey again
coached us to help make it a success. Our class almost dominated the basketball team
this year. With the help of the cheerleaders, Betty Zehner, Shirley Romich, and Nina
Lehman, the games were all very interesting. The tournament was very exciting,
but it did not turn out so, well for us. Again Jack Plank and Jay Lehman repre-
sented our class in the county declamation contest.
We are very busy this year. We are trying to edit the best annual that has
been published in Creston High School. We are also planning our trip to Washing-
ton. To earn money for our trip, we sold Christmas cards, sold candy and ice cream
at the basketball games, and sponsored the Canaan Grange lyceum play. Our treas-
ury is increasing nicely. .
.We chose the white carnation for our class flower and "Push, pull, or get out
of our way" for our motto. We decided to change our class colors to blue and white
and to wear blue and white caps and gowns for Commencement week.
We have done our best these four years in high school and have been well rep-
resented in athletics, literary contests, and music.
Now our last year is over, and it has been a happy one. I am sure that there
is not one person who does not once in a while have time to feel a little sad to think
that his high school days are over. We want you to get along well without us: but
we hope that we will be remembered for many years by members of the Creston
High School. BETTY PERRAM.
