All these have contributed to the development of the cultural spirit and in all we have To taken part and done our share. 1 ARTICLE III the Junior Class we bestow our richest treasures. Almost too numerous to mention are these same treasures and when the lower classmen hear the recital of rare -legacies which fall to their possession, we scarcely expect them to bear up under the shock. Our excelling wit, our teachers, has ever But ,we pass friendsh superlative brilliancy, our good looks, our charming manners, our favor with the our splendid grades and our triumphant exit as the most popular class this school seen. These are the rare treasures that we hand down to the coming Senior Class. it would not be fair if we withheld other valuables and with great largeness of heart them along too. Our capacity for fun, our ability to giggle, our good times, our ips and loyalty, and the rare privilege of wearing red hair ribbons which signify Senior dignity, we do hereby bequeath these to the Junior Class, and may they count them among the richest of the legacies they have received.

Witnessed and signed this eighteenth day of April, by the members of the 'Senior Class. , -Clara Bartholomay fPage Sevenl The Creston Annual - 1940 CLASS HISTORY We're on location again! This time, we have a scene from an historical play-"The Senior History". You will see the class of R409 as it looked in the Freshman Class. It is a very merry and irresponsible group, is it not? Four years ago a momentous event took place. A new class was born-the class known as the banner carriers of the numbers 1940. Yes, at the beginning the members were shrinking and young. Coy looks characterized the girls and awkward feet the boys. After several depressing days we organized our class, electing Delbert Montgomery, President, Lucille Herman, Vice-Presidentg Bette Wright, Treasurer, William Davis, Secretary, and Miss Throckmorton, Adviser. - The outstanding event of the year was the High School One-Act Play Contest. We were quite proud of the fact that we, as Freshmen, shared honors for first place with the Sophomores. Marva Grether joined us the first semester, and during the second Jay Whitmore left. Again in September school started. All thirty-two members of our class felt quite grown-up, because we could have our own seats in the study hall. We found that Evelyn Eby and Herman Perry had not returned to school, and that Richard Holderbaum had joined us. Later that year Rex Elliston quit school and Arcilee Jameson and Richard Petrie left Creston. Basil Perry joined our group the second semester. When we had our first class meeting we decided that Delbert Montgomery should be our President for another year. This time we elected William Davis, Vice-presidentg Robert Clapp, Secretary and Treasurerg and Miss Graber, Adviser. We saw the Junior Class sweaters and since we did not want anyone to get ahead of us, we decided, after much discussion, to buy navy blue sweaters with cardinal "40's". When once more we came back to school in the fall of 1938 we were sorry to find that another member of our class, Donald Elliott, had left us to attend another school. This left us an enrollment of twenty-nine members. We elected as officers, Delbert Montgomery, Presidentg Bette Wright, Vice-presidentg Lucille Herman, Secretary, Patty Reynolds, Treasurer, and Miss Graber, Adviser. At this same meeting.we elected members for the student council, Marva Grether and Robert Clapp. To earn money for the Junior-Senior Banquet we presented the play "Lindy Lou", which was a great success with Mr. Frey as our coach. The Presbyterian Guild served the Junior-Senior Banquet, on the nineteenth of May. A theatre party, at Schine's Wooster Theatre, climaxed the evening's entertainment. During the last semester of school our English class organized a newspaper staff, to pub- lish a school paper, which is known as the "Mugwump". On September 5, 1939 school commenced and our class organized for the last time. We did something no other class had done for a long time, elected the same president we had had for three years, Delbert Montgomery. Bette Wright was chosen as Vice-presidentg Ruth Fetzer, Secretaryg and Clara Bartholomay, Treasurer. Miss Graber was unanimously elected as adviser, because she had so willingly helped us in our Sophomore and Junior years. Robert Clapp and William Davis represented our class on the Student Council. Four of our former members-Ann Marko, Armond Smith, Basil Perry, and Martin Gleim -were not with us. Creston High entered the County Debate Contest for the first time in several years, Robert Clapp and William Uher represented our class. What a team! When Creston High entered the County One-Act Play Contest the entire cast was chosen from our class, Marva Grether, Mickey Holderbaum, Delbert Montgomery, and William Davis. In order to raise sufficient funds for our Washington trip we did the following: Gave our class play "Professor, How Could Youl", coached by Mr. Frey, sponsored movies for the school pupils, and a Radio Roundup entertainment by Tommy and Sherlock, at the School Auditorium, held several bake sales, and sold chances on a cake. We also continued to edit the School Paper known as the "Mugwump". For our class flower we chose the American Beauty rose, and our motto "The Higher the rise, the broader the view". Our class has always been well represented in athletics as well as other school activities. -Patty Reynolds Compliments of SCHINE'S WCOSTER and WAYNE THEATRES, Wooster, O. fPage Eiglztj ,ae-m The Creston Annual - 1940 FAMOUS FACES UF 1960 "AMAZING DISCOVERIES MADE IN EXCAVATION OF BURIED CITY! ! ! " This was the report that spread like fire throughout the city on the morning of May 31, 3000. With one accord the whole populace dropped its activities and flocked to the scene where before their wondering eyes, a long-dead town called Creston began to reveal its secrets, under the picks and shovels of some studious Scientists. Suddenly a loud shout arose above the excited buzz of voices. "What is it? What is it?" Everyone wanted to know. "We've found a picture of the mayor", one of the diggers answered. "Here he is! Take a look!" "Oh, what a handsome manll' several of the ladies sighed. "What was his name?" one gazer wished to know. They turned the picture over and there on the back they found the answer to this latest question: WILLIAM DAVIS. Another amazing discovery they found was an account of the great "Tear Leaf Mansion" and its history. Bette Wright and Patty Reynolds had made a fortune in "Men's Snappy Garters" and enjoyed their old age together as old maids in a mansion just for two fand 13 catsl and waited patiently for a leap year that would really live up to its name, but sad enough, it didnlt. They all listened earnestly and then up went another shout and another picture of an athletic looking gentleman, with a dog on a leash, was found, and they all wondered who this was. They turned it over and on the back it said, "Delbert Montgomery, the dog catcher of the century. He always seems to get the most tender pups for his hot dog factory." Look what they found now! It was a court order for Robert Clapp who was dodging the G-Men, because he was "Turning Turk"-one wife at a time wasn't enough. Another history found was about the big celebration they had in Creston in the year 1964, because Lucille Herman was elected the first woman president. There was also an account of an accident in which many people were hurt when they tried out the new in- vention of the Handy Craft lsea, air, land, and space shipl. They hunted a little farther and found that the inventor had been William Uher, the great Scientist, aided by his great wife, the second Madame Curie, Marva Grether. At this point they found an old phonograph. They played it through 'and it was a record of "Paul Meyer's Harmony Hounds". Boy, did he swing it. Someone found a shoe string, and this is the story connected with it. Robert Graf, a trillion- aire made his fortune manufacturing shoe strings. Another picture is found of a very con- tented woman. On the back it read, "The most happily married woman, Winifred Jeffers". The excavators found a newspaper and a few of the items read as follows: "The members of President Herman's cabinet are discussing a new plan for the A. A. A. Bernard Weideman, Secretary of Agriculture, and Jack Allen, Chairman of the A. A. A. had a hand to hand light over the Farm Relief Bill, but their eyes have lost part of the blackness. Their wives, Mrs. Bernard Weideman Knee Phyllis Fetzer! and Mrs. Jack Allen QRuth Fetzerj are dancing and singing their way into the hearts of many thousands of people who have television." On another page there is an item saying "Mickey and Minnie Mouse are having competition these days. Lucille Uhl and Mickey Holderbaum are taking the part on the stage, because they know how to wear their tails and ears better than Mickey and Minnie themselves." In an- other column is a "job wanted" ad. It reads like this: "Want work in a coal mine. I know when the coal will give off the most heat." Signed, Donald Sonnedecker. In a small space is the marriage announcement of Clara Bartholomay to the youngest farmer in Cannaan Township. Here is another item that says, "The Eighth Wonder of the World". It is the painting of the most wonderful and most powerful picture of all times to come, by Dorothy Walmer, who spent ten years painting the picture of one of her school teachers trying to think, Mr. Kinney. Another small item is that the Class of 1940 gave one of their Classmates a very large bridal shower because she was the first to be married from the Class. She was formerly miss Arlene Mullet. So much for the paper, for they can't find anything else. But the funnies are quite interesting because they are all written and illustrated by Beverly Allen who always called. on Patty and Betty daily, to get their ideas. The monkeys are the most attractive, because they are all extinct, except the ones looking at the paper. Last but not least, they found a radio script and reading it, found that Marjorie Gantz was the announcer of the program of the Greatest American Singer who could reach two octaves above high C and sound like a canary--Norma Jene Tyler. And so with this, the people went back to their homes, satished, leaving the Scientists to delve into the remains. -Iola Yarnell.

No brighter hour we'll know, Though years may come and go, Than this Commencement evening glow. Ahead the trail has led us, From stony hill to hill. We've scaled the hardest summits, And kept on going still. Now our towers are built up to the skies. Oh, we gave a shout to show our gladness, For we knew the end would soon be nigh. And our dream we've dreamed has borne us onward, So now we've reached our highest goal today. And now our hearts, sing in triumph, Oh, hours of light sublime. No words can voice our rapture, Dear graduation time, That now we have made the climb. Gone away, are our school days. Here to stay, are our dreamed days. We're sorry to part, deep down in our hearts, Filled with the dearest memories. Classmates here, stand together. We worked and played here together. With honor, fame, and glory to guide us on We shall toil through the days ahead. To our teachers we are oh, so grateful, For the things that they taugh us to be. And some day we hope that we'll repay them, By doing what they always wished to see. Later on, we'll conspire, As we dream by the Ere, And now the time has come, When we must depart, Bidding you our deepest fond adieu. -Dorothy W'almer.
