SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
1943 - 1944
In the fall of 1943, 29 students came back to school, after their summer
vacation, ready and eager to work. These 29 students, consisting of 17
boys and 12 girls, were to become Freshmen that year. There was no
doubt in anyone's mind there was a great future ahead of this class.
For our first high school class advisor we chose Miss Kalkas. We then
elected Phillip Matteson, president, Carl Slater, vice president, Pauline
Irvin, secretary and treasurer, Jim Blough and Dorothy Cherry, members
of the student council. -
We had several parties during the year, the first being an initiation
party given us by the Sophomores.
This first year we were very active in school. Most of our girls be'
longed to the R. C. H. Club. Jim Blough belonged to the musical branch
of the school. Carl Slater, to the Varsity "C" club and Eugene Sigler,
Carl Slater, Robert Anshutz, Frank johnson, Harry Leaman, Lowell Col'
lins, Clifford McVey, and jim Blough were members of the basketball
and baseball teams. Bob Fry also played on the basketball team.
Through the year we added four new members to our class. One girl,
Donna Lewis, and three boys, Roy Lucas, Raymond Graf, and Paul Par'
sons. This gave us a total of 33 members, but much to our dismay, we lost
10 members by the next fall, leaving us with only 23.
Soon the year came to a close and we were glad for summer to come
1944 - 1945
Coming back to school in the fall of 1944, we acquired seats in the
study hall, much to our liking.
D Choosing Mrs. Baron as adviser, we elected Roy Lucas, president,
Inn Blough, vice president, Paul Parsons, secretary and treasurer, Mary
Henderlong and John Dyck, student council.
We added three new members this year--Frances Haley, Elmer Sher'
win and Robert Miller, but lost them along with eight others by the next
year. This left sixteen hard working members in our class. .
As this year came to a close, we were eager to occupy the middle
of the study hall as Juniors. h
I 1947 ANNUAL 1
1945 - 1946
September 9, 1945, proved a great day for sixteen ambitious Juniors.
Coming back to school we welcomed two new members, Kent Ripley and
Norma Sonnedecker. '
With Mr. Arva as adviser, we proceeded to elect officers: james Blough,
president, Kate Murray, vice president, Pauline Irvin, secretary, Phillip
Matteson, assistant secretary, Donald Reese, treasurer, and Kent Ripley and
Norma Sonnedecker, student council.
We raised money for the banquet, to be given the Seniors, by selling
Christmas cards, having bake sales, and picking up potatoes.
Un April 5, we gave our junior class play, which was a great success.
After our presentation of "Kay Beats the Band", we were given a dozen
white carnations which were much appreciated.
After our work we all enjoyed ourselves at the Iunior and Senior ban'
quet in May.
We ordered our class rings and sweaters. We received our rings in
June, but our sweaters did not arrive until the following fall.
1946 - 1947
At last we are Seniors. Can graduation be far in the future?
As officers for our last unforgettable year in school we chose the folf
lowing: Kate Murray, president, Dorothy Cherry, vice presidentg Pauline
Irvin, secretary, Mary Henderlong, treasurer, Marjoie Mulhollan and
Roy Lucas, student council. Mrs. Bibler was chosen to advise us.
After receiving our class sweaters we were known far and wide by
the bright blue color and the emblem designed by one of our more artistic
On November 14, after many evenings of practice, followed by sleep'
less nights, we successfully gave our Senior class play, 'lEverything Hap'
pens to Us."
Working hard to raise money for our trip the months will soon roll
by and we will find our school life over. Cur enrollment has now come to
a total of fourteen, nine girls and ive boys. But as we leave our beloved
school, you will find many traces of us. just look on the top of any desk
in the building and there you will find along with many others, our
scratches and cuts. -Corrine Kaufman.

--Signed by Senior Class of l94'7
I my ANNUAL 1
I was on my way from California, where I had been a hairfdresser for
several movie stars, to New York. The study of a few new hair styles
for a picture about to be produced in Hollywood necessitated the journey
to New York. I was almost asleep when the engine of the rocketfship began
to spit and sputter. The pilot informed the passengers that we would have
to land immediately to refuel or repair the engine. As I surveyed the
strangely familiar surroundings, I noticed an airport to the west of us,
and approaching this airport, I made out the letters on the hanger to be
Creston Airport. The name 'LCreston" brought back many memories and
I decided to look up all my old classfmates while the ship was being repaired.
At the airport there was a garage with the sign "The Boudoir Me'
chanics" in front of it. As I entered the garage, I thought I saw two
familiar faces and was astonished to Hnd that they were Frances Drabenf
stott and Mary Henderlong. Since they were covered with grease and
were dressed in men's clothing, I hardly recognized them. Standing in
back of them were eight little girls, whom Mary quickly claimedg Frances
said her eight little boys were sleeping but she would arouse them. It
seems their husbands had divorced them and they had decided to pool
their resources to open a garage. They were doing very nicely too. As
usual they were the town's busiest busyfbodies and gave me an account
of each of our former classfmates.
Kathleen Murray had inherited a huge mansion from one of her
many rich uncles and had turned it into a boarding house. She had formerly
studied interior decorating but her boarding house was as far as she went
with it. In the day time she was a school teacher, while in the evenings she
was a fortune teller. This occupied all her time so she had employed Dorothy
Cherry as her maid and cook combined. Neither of them had married and
both were prim old maids. Dorothy was also working with the town's new
physician. He paid her a commission of 5 CZ, for every meal she cooked
that sent a patient to him. He was fast becoming one of the richest men
Roy Lucas was working hard as an understudy of Boris Karloff, and
had very little time for social life. He was a nervous and solemn man and
was crowned with quite a bit of gray hair. After his graduation he tried
to get on the radio as a second Bob Hope. He was to be called the "Corn
King" but after his first program the country's morale dropped 5O'Z,. He
said he knew it couldn't have been his jokes or his singing so it must have
been the commercials.
Marjorie Mulhollan had changed' her mind about being a farmer's wife
and had surprised everyone. She had married one of Tommy Manville's
I 1947 ANNUAL 1
sons and was THE lady of society. She was living in a New York pentf
house and had been chosen as one of the ten best dressed women of the year.
Robert Fry, it seems, was quite a man about town. His distinguished
goatee and moustache evidently added to his magnetic charm for he had
broken many of the local women's hearts. He had been married six times
but each marriage had been a failure. It was then that he decided to call
it quits and spend all his time on the stock market.
Dorothy Bigler wasn't at all the shy, bashful type she had been during
her school days. She was now the sole owner of the Bigler Construction
Company of Creston. The motto for Dorothy's company was "You tear
'em down, we build 'em upf' She, of course, owned a ranch south of
Creston and has some of the most beautiful horses in the country. Bing
Crosby had sold all his horses to Dorothy, thus explaining her ranch.
Corrine Kaufman had wanted to become a dramatic actress but she,
too, had changed her mind and was now a very prospering lady dentist.
She had an ofhce high in one of Creston's biggest business buildings and
was the foremost dentist.
Donald Reese was doing all right for himself too. He was a tree surgeon
which explained the wellfkept look Creston's shrubbery had. He had mar'
ried a local belle at the age of 19 and had settled down to raise a lovely
family of twelve. He led a quiet life except for Saturday afternoons, when
he took part in a debate heard over the radio on a nationwide hookfup
known as "Donald's Dingy Debate Department".
Pauline Irvin had surprised everyone by buying out her father's garage
and converting it into a recreation hall. She also bought some additional
land surrounding the garage so she could have a twofacre gym. Her basket'
ball team was the girls' championship team of Ohio.
Phillip Matteson, it seems, was tired of the humfdrum of city life and
had bought a huge dairy farm in Wooster. It was known as "Flip's Dairy"
and was very prosperous. A great asset to his business was his clean shaven
look, acquired when he received permission from his parents at the age
of 25 to use a razor.
james Blough was the president of an oil company created in Creston
many years ago when oil had been discovered there. He was a millionaire
but it hadn't gone to his head. He had never married because he didn't
trust women since his brideftofbe jilted him when he was a young man of 28.
I thanked Mary and Frances for the information about my other class'
mates and again boarded the ship which was taking me to New York.

consolation game with Sterling, the team was victorious, but was eliminated from
further play, a few days later, by Shreve, thus closing the season for the Commandos.

school house for the team and cheerleaders.

1947 ANNUAL 1
Since I have been around to see all my classmates I thought it would be nice to
visit some of the teachers who taught the last year I was in school. Leaving my
eight boys and the garage to Mary Henderlong I started on my journey.
I came through Lodi and found that Mr. Robinson had bought the Lodi Airport
and was carrying on a trade of his own, He had built a much larger plane and was
hauling express to and from the large cities. His pilots were the boys he had taught to
fly when he taught Aeronautics in Creston. However the boys who were juniors at
the time had long since been dead. The only pilot he could trust was Bonnie Steele.
Anyway he had a prospering business and I wished him luck for a few more years.
That can't be for very long for you see he isn't a young chicken anymore.
Coming to Creston I decided to visit the school and see if by any chance any
of the teachers were still here. On entering the office I found Miss Easterday behind
the Supt. desk. It seems that she was so stuck on the "little darlings" that she just
couldn't leave them. While I was talking to her one of the new teachers sent in a
pupil to be taken care of Cand I don't mean he was sickj, so Supt. Easterday set to
work. Boy does she swing a mean blow! That poor boy.
After this ordeal I asked her if she knew where I could find some of the other
teachers. She said that Miss Smith was making the headlines, She is a dancer in a
Broadway show called 'LWatch Your Step". She has danced with Fred Astaire, and
is now the envy of every girl of the community.
She also told me that Miss Hindley has a large aquarium in Chicago. She has a
group of prize fish that she names after her pupils. In her spare time she teaches swim'
ming at the nearest college. V
I was then informed about Mr. Frey and heard to my dismay that under his
careful guidance all of my school chums had become alcoholics. In teaching the course
on alcoholism, he discovered that drunkards are not responsible for what they do,
and devised a scheme to make billions of dollars. He has a great mental institution
and through his clever way of teaching, has been able to fill it with his students.
Each patient was asked to pay one thousand dollars previous to their admittance,
and as the institution has acquired a famous name, people from all over the world
are on his waiting list.
Mrs. Bibler is president of the firm "Want a Million Dollars" and to earn
a little more money, has also accepted the position of Mr. Frey's head nurse and
secretary at the institution. Her firm has been very successful and her position at
the institution is just as promising.
Miss Smit was chosen cover girl for the Farm journal Magazine when her
photo was spotted by the Lucky Strike Tobacco Company who hired her as a model
for their advertising. They entered her picture in the title of Miss Lucky Strike of
1948. It was later announced that she had won the title.
Having learned about all the teachers I started on my homeward journey to the
drudgery of the garage. -Frances Dravenstott
