SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
1942 - 1943
In the year 1942, the future class of 1946 entered the rank of high
school students. We suffered as all Freshies seem to, from being teased and
humiliated by the very superior upper classmen. Our enrollment was
thirtyfthree, with the girls leading by six.
We survived, however, and chose John Portwood to lead our class
through its perilous first year. Alice Slater kept notes on our meetings and
since we had so much business to attend, was assisted by Bernice Dawson.
Raymond Graf and Arthur Meyer well represented us on the Student
Council. Mrs. Fox was elected our adviser and held this position for the
first half of the year, when she was replaced by Mr. Huff.
We did a lot of deciding that year, it seems. We chose our class colors.
Then we decided to have a party - but what kind? It took us months to
make up our minds. VVe finally decided to have it in Shaw's barn. We
had lots of fun after all.
We gained a few: Frances Haley, Marilyn Wachtel, and Ada McCoy.
During the year we lost several students: Donald Fry, Ada McCoy, James
Gerstenslager, and George Marko.
The Seniors gave us an initiation party. We were miserable all day
with our dresses on wrong side out and all the terrible makefup they forced
us to wear. In the evening they gave us a swell party and we decided they
weren't so bad after all.
This seems to be the extent of our activities in the Freshman year.
Adios to our first year in high school.
1943 - 1944
Most eagerly did we start our sophomore year. Sophisticated, poised
and willing to give our advice to anyone whom we thought needed it.
We elected as our officers for the year Harold Reese, president, assisted
by Alice Slater, Secretary and Treasurer, Roberta Wilesg Student Council,
Kent Ripley and Virgil Markley. Miss Kalkas filled the capacity as our
We initiated the freshies this year. It was rather rough but lots of fun.
Our enrollment was boosted by the entrance of Arthur Boone and
Mardell Starcher. We lost some valued members, namely, Clarence Bricker,
Raymond Graf, YVilbur Swigart, Grace Pinkley, Mardell Starcher, Elmer
fPa ge Tlmteenj
I 1946 ANNUAL 1
Sherwin, Eugene Schaad, Roberta Wiles, Frances Haley, John Portwood
and Dolores Totten.
We shall now say "cheerio" to our Sophomore year.
1944 - 1945
We're finally upper classmen, and who could be prouder!
With much confidence we chose the following officers: President,
Jeannette Rook, Vice President, Arthur Boone, Secretary and Trasurer,
Bernice Dawson, and Student Council, Alice Slater and Arthur Meyer.
Mrs. Bibler guided us through this year with a firm hand.
We chose our class colors and flower this year, also our motto which
was changed in the senior year.
We got our snazzy class sweaters this year. They were bright red
and white. Our rings came during the summer.
Our class play "Tricking Trickstersn given May 4, was a big success.
We gained two new members Marian Johnson and Betty Smith.
The boys pressed their best suits and the girls got out their formals
-why? The ,junior'senior banquet, of course.
Comes May and the uppermost thought in our minds seems to be
"I-Iurrah! Next year we will be seniors." Well 'LAu Revoir" to our junior
1945 - 1946
On September 9, 19 seniors marched in and occupied the chosen
seats in study hall.
Well, finally we were seniors but not without some regrets. We,
wise and worldly seniors chose this year as officers, President, Jeannette
Rook, Vice President, Harold Reese, Secretary, Bernice Dawson, Treasf
urer, Vivian Steele, Student Council, Alice Slater, Arthur Meyer. Mrs.
Bibler was unanimously elected as our adviser.
It seems Dolores Totten just couldn't stay away so back she came
to graduate with us.
Our dramatic offering was "Let Me Grow Up", a three act comedy
which was the work of professionals.
We had a get together at Mrs. Bibler's and enjoyed games and ref
This seems to be the extent of our high school years and as we say
"soflong" to the little red school house, we sincerely hope each and all of
you enjoy getting an education as much as we did. Beatrice Dawson
l 1946 ANNUAL 1
Hear ye! Hear ye! We, the class of 1946, having recovered from the
disease of high school education, being of sound mind, do hereby publish
this last will and testament, bequeathing everything we have and ,don't
want, to anyone who wants and can make use of it:
To the Junior Class we will our Senior ambition.
To the Sophomore Class we will some respect for upper classmen.
To the Freshman Class we will a broom to keep their room clean.
As the Seventh and Eighth grades have failed to prove themselves capable
of any achievements, they are, therefore, not eligible to be mentioned
in this precious document.
In respect to the faculty for their help in our time of need, we wish to
bequeath the following:
To Mr. Frey we will a well developed gym class. QIt never could be while
we were here.j
To Mrs. Bibler we will a class who will appreciate her efforts as much as
To Mr. Arva we will a basketball team that knows all about basketball,
so they can teach him how to play. P
To Miss Smith we will a Sophomore Class that won't "go over her head."
To Miss McIlvaine we will an English class that will keep their feet on
To Mr. Hart we will a class that is willing to learn just how to get to
To Mrs. Baron we will classes who, in the future, won't write her such
To Mr. Sonnedecker we will a chorus he doesn't have to drag to class.
To Mr. Young we leave an uprising high school band.
I 1946 ANNUAL 1
A few personal bequests:
Arthur Boone, will my ability to argue with anybody to Charles Allen.
Jean Copley, will my alarm clock to John Dyck so in the future he'll
get to school on time.
Beatrice Dawson, will my letters from the Coast Guard to Marjorie
Bernice Dawson, will some curls to Duane Raber so he won't have to
endure the misery of sleeping on curlers every night. I
Betty Dunn, will my ability to be true to Kate Murray.
Leona Fetzer, will my ability to walk to Mary Henderlong.
Ilene Graber, will my typing ability to Kent Ripley.
Relda Grunder, will my earrings to Roy Lucas.
Irene Huffman, will my ability to roll my eyes to Dick Younker.
Marion Johnson, will my small feet to Dorothy Cherry.
Virgil Markley, will my curly hair to Donald Reese.
Arthur Meyer, will my razor to George Marko.
Vivian Steel, will my flat feet to Phil Matteson.
Harold Reese, will my knowledge of a Plymouth to Kent Ripley.
Jeannette Rook, will my secret weapon over my class to Jimmy Blough,
provided he can End out what it is.
Alice Slater, will my turned up nose to Pauline Irvin.
Dolores Totten, will my cheerfleading ability to Lois Gerstenslager.
Betty Weaver, will my fat legs to Lois Reese.
This having been done, we are ready to pass on.

I 1946 ANNUAL 1
My rocket ship in the garage, I decided to fly to Reno in a helicopter
which, of course, would take more time but would get me there. You see,
I had married the manager of a flourishing coffee plantation in Brazil. My
marriage at first was very successful but for some time now it had been
very unpleasant. Both of us having decided that divorce was the only
solution, I agreed to start the proceedings.
Having arrived in the good old-United States, I decided to visit some
of my school day chums to see how they were weathering life's storms.
I had already met one while I was in South America. That one was Harold
Reese, who was flying orchids to the States. He was very happily married
to a beautiful Spanish girl who was very charming and obviously very
much devoted to her husband.
I immediately set out for Creston to visit Mr. Frey in order that I
might get some information as to the whereabouts of my classmates. He
was still superintendent of the high school but the strain was beginning
to show. His hair was snow white, and he walked with a cane and the
aid of vitamin tablets which he took every half hour.
He told me that only one of my old friends was still living in Creston.
This was Arthur Boone. It seems that he was in partnership with the local
undertaker. I understand that he received a commission for each body he
brought in. Profits were very high since he still drove the "Blue Buggy".
Picking up the "Daily Record", I noticed the name Marian johnson
in the headlines. Immediately reading the column below, I saw that she
was the first woman brakeman on the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa
Fe Railroad. Riding in the caboose, she repeated what she had said in high
school, namely that she would get ahead by staying behind. I also noticed
that Betty Dunn's husband had bought the Chippewa Lake Resort. When
I visited them, I surmised from the diapers on the clothes line that she
had more to "paddle than her own canoe".
I then learned from Mr. Frey that Arthur Meyer was a professor
at Vassar. He was a very learned man but was in grave danger of being
tossed out on his ear. The reason was that all the girls were failing. Every
time he flashed one of his beautiful dimples someone swooned and much
time was lost in reviving the damsels. He also told me that Virgil Markley
too, was having a rough time in the world. He had made a killing on the
horses and was known as the biggest heartbreakerfplayboy, of the fashion'
able Palm Beach set. He had been the third party in numerous divorce
suits and was a little the worse for wear.
Leona Fetzer had taken over the business of managing the eating
place we all called "Mary's". Her motto was, "If you find a worm or
even a tack - keep it yourself - don't give it back".
1 1946 ANNUAL 1
Dolores Totten and Betty Weaver had opened a beauty shop which
was the biggest success in all Hollywood. Dolores did all the work and
Betty stood outside and advertised by combing her lovely hair, powdering
her nose, and filing her nails.
Relda Grunder was a debate coach at Harvard University and a
veterinarian on the side. A little absentfminded, one day she injected a
student with antifhydrophobia serum and tried to teach a dog the art
of speaking. Results were: man bites dog-dog wins debate-one nervous
Ilene Graber was my next stop. At this time she was very happy to
see me as she was in the hospital. While on tour, she got caught in her
accordian and was badly mangled. She was coming along Hne but said
she was going to learn to play a harmonica.
Vivian Steele was visiting her parents in Creston at this time so
I was fortunate in being able to see her. She was still very pretty but
rather tired looking too. She was an army wife and since she wanted to
be with her husband, she was continually moving. Her husband's rank
was that of a colonel and what with six little privates she was very busy.
Irene Huffman was very quiet about her life. She owned a beautiful
home, a plane, clothes, and stock in many large business concerns. It was
rumored that she was married to a movie star by the name of Van Johnson.
She flatly denies this but I have my doubts.
I was very disappointed in not being able to visit with four of my
old friends. I heard about them though. Thus the story goes: Alice Slater
had started to Vienna to study music but somehow got side tracked in
Switzerland. She was told that not only would she make a good guide for
mountain climbers, because of her yodeling ability, but also, she was not
a bit hard to follow. It was said that she has not lost a single tourist.
Two others I did not see were Bernice and Beatrice. The team of
Dawson and Dawson was finally broken up, but not without many tears.
Bernice longed for a simple life. She was a traveling companion for a rich
dowager, who not only had plenty of money but also a handsome son, to
whom Bernice was secretly engaged. Beatrice, longing for an exciting life,
was hunting wild game in Africa. She had been made a member of tribe of
Amazons which she discovered on one of her treks into the jungle.
The life of the last one of my classmates grieved me very much. This
was Jean Copley. Her love life had been so disappointing that she had shut
herself off in seclusion from the rest of the world and was publishing books
on the idea of a world without men.
Greatly refreshed by my travels, I started my return to Reno to get
the Hnal decree on my divorce. On my arrival there, I received a telegram
from my husband, asking that I return. just to give this story a happy
ending . . . I did. -Ieannette Rook

W THE VOICES
The success of the High School Choruses have been due, in a large
part to the almost full cooperation, interest and efforts of its members and
the two able accompanists, Kathleen Murray and Joanne Plank.
Many of the girls seemed surprised that they need open their mouths to
sing. However after much effort upon their part and persuasive insistence
of the director, everyone's mouth was gaping wide at rehearsal.
The first program given during the second semester was a group of
three selections for the P.T.A. meeting in March. The efforts of the chorus
were so enthusiastically received that plans for a spring musical festival
were initiated in conjunction with the orchestra. The date tentatively
decided upon was May 7th, during National Music Week.
Many details as to dress, programs, and staging were carefully planned
and directed by different members of the chorus. Besides the material side
of the program there was the choosing of a well balanced program and the
memorization of words and respective parts. During the latter part of
March recordings of several songs were made. In this manner, each mem'
ber could criticize the work accomplished thus far and could realize the
faults to be corrected.
Formed after the Annual pictures were taken, was the Girls' Chorus.
This group of femininity rehearsed one period per week and devoted most
of their efforts to contemporary music, such as that of Irving Berlin, Cole
Porter and Daniel Wolfe. This proved slightly more diflicult for the girls
as the choral arrangements were of modern, close harmony. However, this
obstacle was soon overcome and a group of four songs were chosen to be
presented at the Spring Concert.
Both of these groups are scheduled to sing for the assembly program
during National Music Week, which will culminate the musical activities
of the year. -Donald Sonnedecker

Three lettermen returned from the 1944f45 Basketball squad to form the nucleus
of this year's team. They were Virgil Markley, centerg Harold Reese, forwardg and
Arthur Meyer, forward. With these boys spearheading the attack in many games,
our team was able to seize 10 victories out of 21 games. Much credit is due to
Coach William Arva for his leadership and efforts in coaching the squad.
Robert Markley, Merle Beachy and John Clark were the able assistants of the
lettermen in gaining our 10 victories, and we hope for a successful season again
next fall. Below are the scores of the games during the previous season.

cheering for Creston, having moved here from Burbank in her freshman year. She
takes much interest in all sports and is active in many of her school activities.
Alice, a senior, has finished her second year of cheering for Creston and enjoyed
it very much. She, also, has been active in school sports and activities.
Dolores, another senior, has ended her third year as a cheerleader. She was a
cheerleader for Creston this past year and during her sophomore and junior years

"U T 0 P 1 AH:
Ah, yes. How pleasant it is to go to school. From the moment we students arrive
until the time we go home at night the day is just one happy celebration.
Let me take you on a tour over the happenings of an average day at Creston
High School. School, of course, doesn't start until 10:00. This is very nice since
most schools begin classes at 9:00, but not unusual since every effort is made to
give the students all the comforts of home.
Everyone leisurely files into the study hall. They have quiet conversations
with their friends. There is no rowdy acting or talking, no candy or eraser throwing,
no sly winks and nudges as a girl promenades up to visit the handsome, funfloving,
intelligent and indulging teacher. Every single person is on his best behavior.
Then we are summoned to our classes by a record, playing one of the most
popular pieces made by a popular singer of the day. It really is a treat to go to
class when called in this way.
Joy of joys! The teacher upon arriving in class, politely greets the class with a
cheery smile and then starts the day off right by telling us of an amusing incident or
joke he or she had heard. All the laughter comes straight from the heart - not a
bit forecd as it is sometimes apt to be.
The class having been called to order, lessons begin. Many times they are spoken
of with distaste but in Creston every book opened is a source of knowledge and
pleasure. You see, we study only movie magazines, Seventeen, comic strips, and
Popular Mechanics. Don't worry about what we learn because I assure you the
students of Creston are very learned and wellfdeveloped, mentally.
In half an hour the record begins again and class is dismissed. Before leaving,
however, we receive our pay for that class. Although not very much, it greatly
reduces the expense of the teacher's candy bill, as we are all allowed to sustain our
hunger until the noon hour by partaking of some sweet morsel.
Cur morning classes over at 11:30, we quietly collect our wraps or go down
to the cafeteria, as the case might be. Those going home to lunch -are given plenty
of time, and are taken to and from school in red and black station wagons. Those
eating in the cafeteria have special booths and are served by paid waitresses. Anything
which a person wants to eat can be found in our cafeteria.
After coming back to school at 1:30, our afternoon classes are much the same
as the morning except that they are only gym classes, music, assembly, or special
activity periods. We have only the best teachers and the best conditions of health.
No one ever skips school, we have no detention hall, and there has never been a
failure or F given in the history of our fair school.
A 3 :00 we leave for home in the station wagons. They stop wherever we want
and take us as far as we like.
Then we reminisce over the day's happenings. We think of how nice the teachers
were when they said goodfbye and invited us to come again soon. Ah, yes. It's
pleasant to go to school. If you don't think the things I've said are true, I shall
conduct you personally on a tour of our institution of learning.
