The Cresion Annual - 1940
C L A S S W I L L
We, the Class of 1940 of Creston High School do hereby make and declare this to be
our last will and testament, in form and manner as follows:
To the entire school we leave the example we have set as worthy scholars and blameless
students. Our record has been spotless and in all the annals of our career we have done no
deed, as a class, that we need blush for.
ARTICLE II '
the community at large we bequeath the influence we have been for the honorable
and better things of life, the interest in music, in local dramaticsg in debating activities, and
in athletics. All these have contributed to the development of the cultural spirit and in all
taken part and done our share. 1
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
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.
And now we come to the following personal bestowals which have been awarded to indi-
viduals with complete consideration to the fitness of the recipient.
I, Beverly A., bequeath this calendar, which I found very helpful in keeping udatesl'
