On September third, nineteen hundred thirty-eight, our class
suddenly grew up and became Freshmen, There were twenty-seven of
us, thirteen boys and fourteen girls.
One of the first things on our schedule was election of
class officers. We elected June Uher, president: Margaret Tyler,
vice-president: and Mildred Weideman, secretary-treasurer. To
the Student Council we elected Eugene Uhl and Margaret Tyler. As
advisor we chose Mr. Kinney,
We started our first year in senior high school off with a
bang, We had several skating parties and the Sophomores gave us
a party in the high school gym.
The months flew by and we lost one of our members, Robert
Trafzer, when he moved. Soon May came and we were one year
nearer our goal: graduation as seniors.
When our class came back to school in 1939, the number of
our members had decreased to twenty-six. As class officers 'we
elected the following: President, Eugene Uhl: ' vice-president,
Leroy Haley: secretary-treasurer, Doloris Long. To the Student
Council we elected Richard Fouehe and Eileen Levers, As our
advisor we chose Miss Koontz.
During this year we had several skating parties and other
class parties. We lost one member when James Totten moved,
When May came we had passed the half way mark on our way bbc
When we came back to school in 1940, we were still'twonty+
six in numberQ Again we elected Eugene Uhl, president. As viceq
president we elected Richard Fouche, Eileen Levers was elected
secretary and Eleanor Herman treasurer. To the Student Council
we elected Eileen Levers and Bernard Jeffers and as class advisor
we chose Miss Graber.
During the first semester we bought class sweaters. We
chose royal blue sweaters with gray emblems. nThe Blue Birds of
During the second semester we ordered class rings which we
were to receive next September when school started.
In April we gave the class play nSunbonnet Jane of Sycamore
Lanen, a decided success, which was directed by Miss Koontz.
We lost four members during the year but gained one anew
member when Audrey Olson Joined us.

On May seventeenth the Junior-Senior Banquet was held i
Harveyis Restaurant in the Hotel Bechtel at Wooster. After the
banquet there were games and dancing.
On September third, 1941, we assembled for our last and
busiest year in high school. Our class ,had now decreased until
we occupied only nineteen seats in the back section of the studyw
hall. During the year a new member, Charles Dietrich, joined us
but later withdrew so our number was still nineteen.
As officers for this year we again elected Eugene Uhl,
president: Leroy Haley, vice-president: Margaret Tyler,Soerotary
Audrey Olson, treasurer. To the Student Council we elected
Eileen Levers and Doloris Long. As advisor we chose Miss Graber.
For the second School Fair, sponsored by the R, O. H. and
F. F, A. Clubs, we sent two girls to represent our class in the
election of a Harvest Queen, one, Doloris Long, being chosen
Other activities during the year to raise money were as
We gave the play nMiss Jimmyn, directed by Mr, Frey:
sold Christmas card subscriptions: sponsored a movie, sponsored
supper: and sold candy at the basket-ball games.
As a class flower we chose the American Beauty Rose and ,
nThe elevator to success is closed: use the stairwayu is our class
We never thought we'd reach the end
Of Education's trail:
Sometimes it seemed too long and hard,
That surely we must fail.
Yet milepost after milepost passed,
And here we are--arrived at last2.
The days and months were endless long,
The years too thick to count:
And crowding faster though we went-
Still what e vast amount!
Yet we pressed on with pulses fast,
And now behold-we're here at last!
So at the end of this school year
We feel a surge of pride:
Right on the top of fortune's wave
We feel that we should ride.
For now the last milepost has passed
And here we are -- arrived at last!

In a recent seance with Bala Ben Golly, noted crystal gazer,
I learned the following factso They were gained through a con-
versation with a certain spirit of the future, whose name I have
forgotten. Bon Golly acted as our medium and translator. C The
spirit was hard to understand, he had adnoidsb. -

meenotsc Forget-me-nets will be the symbol of her lost youth and

Chase: dog house party for Uncle Walter: gashouse party for the
Stn Louis Cardinals: Parties, parties, parties? champagne, cham-
pagne, champagne? Bromo, Bromo, Bromo Seltzer

planes make too much noise for his sensitive ears,

of the strain.
Betty Graf is going to become a cook of great renown. She
is to have a salary of 360,000 annually to prepare Yahoodi's dai-
ly nectar and ambrosia,
Bernard Jeffers will be our next president. You might say

you heard anybody say anything about the eighth term?
John Haley will fulfill a life long ambition when he becomes
a blacksmith, Every day he can play the anvil chorus,
Eleanor Herman is to become the writer of the uBoy Dates
Girln column in the Scholastic magazine. Being a conservativ e

HISTORY OF CRESTON HIGH SCHOOL
The first school in Creston was a one room building erected
a few years prior to 1878, and was surrounded by a rail fenca
This building was moved to another location, remodled, and is
still being used as a dwelling house. The permanent school was
founded and built in 1876. Funds for a one story building were
furnished by the township, but the people of Creston decided it
was much more desirable to educate their children at home rather
than to send them to such far away schools as Canaan and Smiths
ville Academies. A group of public spirited citizens of that
time, by their own contributions, added enough to the fund al-
ready given by the township to build a two-story school building
The first teacher was James McCoy and a nephew of this mari
was a teacher at a later date. One of the instructors of that
decade was William Dawson who later became a nationally known
lecturer. Dr, Litell, well remembered by many residents of the
present time was also one of the early instructors.
In the year 1878 the township took control of our Creston
Schools. Thus it has since remained a public school. In the
year 1890 the first class of six members completed the course re-
quired at that time and was graduated under Professor Mills. The
smallest class to graduate was that of 1898 with only three mem-
bers. what a contrast tb the number who are completing the
course today, and what a difference in the courses as well,
' The student body increased, and a few years later because of
the danger to first and second grade pupils in crossing the rail-
roads, a building was erected in the north end of the village to
house the first and second grades.
Continued added enrollement demands more room and more instr-
uctors. It may be remembered what a hue and cry was raised wheri
it was decided that the superintendent needed an assistant,
Until this time the superintendent had been compelled to teach
all classes in high school as well as having the supervision of
all grades. '
In the year 1908 the old frame building containing four
rooms was condemned by the State Fire Marshal. Some repairs were
made, but it was still considered unsafe. The old building held
until 1915 when after many " 'cussins and discussinsn a fine new
brick building was erected. After the building was completed and
equipment installed, how proudly they all pointed to the modern
Centralization of township schools occurred in 1918. The
building was enlarged to its present size in 1924 and new the
school is classed among the best small town schools in Ohio, and
with Ohio schools rating among leading ones in the nation it is
not hard to see where Creston stands.
As yet Creston has not produced a President, but they are
still sawing out the timbers from which Presidents are built.

ROYAL ORDER OF HOM MAKERS
The Royal Order of Homemakers began their drive for club
members shortly after school began. Twenty-two new girls were
initiated, making a total of forty-six members for the year,
The formal initiation service wasi held by candle light in
the school auditorium, The service was read by Nina Lehman, the
president of the club. Refreshments were served.
October found the R.-O. H. and the F. F. A. Clubs busy stag-
ing the second annual Community Fair held at the Creston School.
3The November meeting was in part devoted to Red Cross Work.
The girls knitted afghans and sweaters. Shirley Romich, past pres
ident of the club told about her experiences in college. Dancing
was the recreation. Refreshments were served.
The Club sponsored a Christmas party for children between
the ages of five and seven. Games were played and songs were
sung. Gifts were given to the children by Santa's wife, Mildred
January found the girls interested in starting a courtesy
campaign to make our school more observant of the Golden Rule. A
Chapel program was given by girls and boys pertaining to courtesy
and etiquette. This was followed by each pupil in the high
school filling out a.courtesy rating sheet,
A St. Patrick's dance, the first school dance of the year,
was sponsored by the club, This dance was very much of a success,
The decorations and refreshments were in keeping with the holiday.
For the April meeting Miss Berkley gave a talk on charm and
personalityg Recreation was given my Miss Berkley who taught the
girls a few folk dances.
May was the month of their annual trip to Cleveland.
From the above account you can see that the R. O, H. Club is
not all work. They aim to combine work and play. The Creston
Club again received its 'award of meritu this year, This is ob-
tained by fulfilling certain requirements of the state.

In an orchestra there are certain objectives to work for.
First there must be cooperation among the players of the entire
orchestra: and secondly, cooperation between the orchestra and
the director. If the above mentioned objectives are not obtained,
one cannot have a successful organization.
This year the Creston High School orchestra has had a ver+y
successful season. It has played at many school functions during
the current school year and has been doing very fine work under
the leadership of Professor Harry Young.

with us a lad named. Bob Trasfer. Mr, Gattshall, the Science
