The Creston Annual - 1940 HIGH SCHOOL SONG Onward, fellows, we must conquer Fight for Creston High! Red and Black expect a victory Win for Creston High! Honor, fame, and glory calling, You must do your best. So whate'er the contest Win for Creston High! 3 Fight then, fellows, fight to conquer Fight for Creston High! Never weary in the contest, Win for Creston High! Though the battle go against you You must stand and fight, So whate'er the contest ,Win for Creston High! C L A S S S 0 N G Tune-Winter Wonderland Our hopes have grown, and have blossomed, Like lilacs in the May. 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. Compliments of BOWER'S Fooo STORE fPage Tenl

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.
