SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
1944 - 1945
We were a group of thirty-one Freshmen sitting in our seats on that fall
day in 1944. It was our first year in Senior High School and we sat proudly.
Our future was before us. Unpredicted things would happen to this class in the
years to come.
In our first year as grown up ladies and gentlemen, we chose as our advisor,
Miss Perry. For our class officers we elected Robert Markley, President, Lois
Gerstenslager, Vice President, our Secretary and Treasurer was Virginia Foster,
jean Carter and Harry Sonnedecker were our Student Council members.
Our first grown-up party was a hay-ride. Gasser's woods was our destination.
The memory of that event will long linger in all our minds.
Another event of our Freshman year was the chapel program "Little Red
Riding Hood". The skit was written by a class member, Virginia Foster.
During the year, six new members came to join our class. They were, Bonnie
Steele, Norma Yoder, Margaret Lucas, Francis Steele, Robert Russel and Glenn
Moore. The same year we lost two of our members.
1945 - 1946
Upon arriving at school on that existing day in 1945 we were presented
with seats in the front of the study hall. We were bursting with happiness!
When the time came to choose our advisor and officers we elected the fol-
lowing: advisor, Miss Smith, president, Robert Markleyg vice president, Margaret
Lucas, secretary and treasurer, Joanne Plankg student council members, Jean
Carter and Roger Reese.
Among other activities, the Sophomore class sponsored a square dance.
We didn't have the luck to welcome any new members to our class this year.
It seemed that luck was against us because we lost three members. Our class
now totaled twenty-seven members.
SENIOR CLASS HISTGRY fContinuedj

Another summer has passed and you see us now, a group of very intelligent
students who have profited from two years in High School. We are now ready
to carry on our duties as full-Hedged juniors.
After choosing Mr. Robinson as our advisor we completed the task of
electing our officers. The following were elected: for president, Robert Markleyg
vice president, Margaret Lucas, for our secretary, Lois Gerstenslagerg treasurer,
Bonnie Steele, jean Carter and Roger Reese represented us in the student council.
We worked hard this year--having bake sales, picking up potatoes, and
selling Christmas cards.
We presented our class play "A Case of Springtime" on April 11. It turned
out to be a great hit. The Seniors presented a beautiful bouquet of roses to us
after the play.
Our most memorable event of this year was the junior and Senior banquet.
It was held at "Dorns Country Housew.
We received our green and white class sweaters, also our class rings this year.
We lost several more members of our class this year, our total enrollment
was now eighteen.
All in all our junior year was quite successful and we left the 'Old Red
School House' with a longing to return next year.
We were a group of eighteen, sitting proudly in our seats on that fall day
in 1947. We were Seniors! After three years of climbing we had reached the top
rung in the ladder.
Our officers for this last unforgettable year are: President, Lois Gerstenslagerg
vice president, Robert Markleyg secretary, Bonnie Steele, treasurer, Martha jane
Fraryg our student council members for this year were jean Carter and Merle
Beachy. For our class advisor we chose Miss Weimer.
After weeks of hard work we gave our class play presentation, "My Cousin
From Texasu. It was a great success.
Because of our successful square dance back in '45 we decided to sponsor
another one. It was only one among the many events of our Senior year.
As our school days come to a close we try to make the most of every one.
Our memory will forever be associated with the 'Old Red School I-Iouse'. Humble,
proud and thankful eighteen Seniors leave behind them the happy, happy school
days, looking forward to our life which lies ahead. -Mary Jane Woods

Signed by Senior Class of 1948
While reading the correspondence from my colmn "Know all, and Tell
Alln, I received a letter from one of my most faithful readers requesting that
I find out how many fleas the average dog has for her dog club. I hurried
to confer with my Editor, Bonnie Steele, to find out if I could ignore this
letter. She answered with a very firm "No',. She also added that I must con-
duct the survey myself, so I would have the real satisfaction. As I cleaned
up my desk before my trip, I began to think how pleasant it would be if I
could draw my husband away from his broom business and persuade him
to join me on my survey. It was rather hard as he had just finished nego-
tiations concerning selling brooms to the government of France, and was
tired. But showing who has the upper hand in our family, we started
out in our private plane several days later to count fleas.
just after we left New York, my husband handed me a letter from Marg
Lucas, now Marg Ranor, who married a famous French designer during her
brief career as a Powers model. She is now kept busy raising her six little
Frenchmen. Even so, she still has time to model some of her husband's
creations. She closes by saying she would probably be seeing Martha Frary
soon, as she would be stopping in France on her way to her post in Russia.
She is a famous missionary and her superiors decided that the Russians
still needed missionary work more than any other country.
My husband suddenly took my attention from Marg's letter by telling
me that we were over the largest floating airport in the world. I glanced
down and saw the name Creston on the hangar and insisted that we land.
just as we started down, a plane zoomed past, just missing our wingtips.
After we landed we asked who had nearly hit us and found out it was Bob
Markley. I found out later that he had broken his pitching arm soon after
he had left school and had decided to take up sky writing. He is now being
sued because he mis-spelled "Misses Soapn and made it "Messes Soapn. He
swears it was a mistake but some of his friends have their doubts. He landed
and after sharing many schoolday memories he told me what had happened
to Gert and Oc, a constant pair during schooldays. It seems they were touring
Europe lecturing on "How To Have a Peaceful I-Iomelifel' but one night in
Bohemia, they disagreed on a point and caused a brawl that landed them in
jail. Right then and there, they decided to change their subject to "The
Gentle Art of Self-Defense". Now they seem to have more interest in the
subject and are having better crowds.
Bob drove us to the hotel and explained how the floating airport had
come about. It seems Chippewa Lake and the swamps of Creston had finally
won out.It was a disaster at the time but now is making millions for the town.
We entered the Grand Hotel of Creston which is owned by Mary Jane
Woods Something or Other. When asked why she opened a hotel, she
explained that her husbandls relations had lived with her so long that she
figured she might as well open a hotel and charge them for it.
Bob explained that there was a farewell party being held for Martha
and suggested that we join them. After greetings were exchanged I saw
a group around the television screen watching a wrestling match. I was
startled to see that it was Norma jean Yoder that was sitting on the other
girls' heads. They told me that she is now known as the "Battling Babe"
and is defending her championship. just as we were about to find out
who was the winner, the television set broke and left Yoder still sitting
there. Much disgusted, I started over to drag my husband from the punch
bowl. There I met Elda Gasser, married now, but never-the-less still the
head of a big candy concern called "The Sweetest Sweets Company". Elda
also told me about Wilma, who after an unhappy romance closely following
schooldays, had headed for the mountains of Wyoming and had started a
goat farm, which she hasn't left nor has a man entered in ten years.
Still by the punch bowl, I saw Harry Sonnedecker pass up the punch
and take a glass of milk. I had heard that Harry was the coach of the Creston
High School team, and made the mistake of asking him how it was going.
I found out that his team had gone to Kent this year, but was surprised to
learn that it was not the boys but the girls. After hearing about many difficult
and teachnical basketball plays, I finally got him to tell me about Merle
Beachy. After finishing school, Merle decided to take up bowling. He was
doing quite well until one night he forgot to leave go of the ball and made
a strike-with his head. He is now located in the City Hospital but the doctor
reports he is doing fine.
Chuck Allen came plodding in after the boys. When I asked him what
he had been doing with himself, he blushingly replied that he was a floor
walker in the"Ladies Lingerie Departmentuof the new O'Neils store in town.
The scream of brakes was heard outside and every one knew that Honest
Don Henderlong, the Used and Mis-used Car Dealer had arrived. He brought
with him Glenard Beyler and Bob Russell. Glenard is now a great scientist.
His las discovery was a bubble gum that can be used to patch tires, stop runs
in hose, hold up wallpaper and also comes in twenty-six different flavors.
Bob is the designer of the Russell Bussel, the only bussel with a russle.
The only sad, but yet not entirely unhappy note of the evening was the
telegram that was received from Norma Beal. After hnishing school, Norma
took up balloon flying and while she was making a flight a day or so before,
had lost control of her balloon. There was a strong wind and it blew her to
South Africa, where she claims she has found the man of her dreams. He is
an ex-sailor who landed there and has become quite wealthy.
After cabling Norma wishing her all the luck in the world, someone
asked me why I was wondering all around the country. I told them I was
taking a survey on the average number of fleas that a dog had. As the party
was getting dull anyway, they decided to help me. After chasing a dog
over most of the streets of Creston, we finallyicornered one, and counted
his fleas. So that is how my survey ended and also my story. --jean Carter

This year something new has been added at Creston High School. We have
Reserve Team Cheerleaders as well as the Varsity. This has saved wear and tear
on girls who usually had to cheer for both games.
This year the Varsity Cheerleaders are Eleanor West, Barbara Harmon, jean
Carter and Marg Lucas. Barbara, who is a freshman, has just completed her first
year. jean, who is a senior, and Eleanor, who is a junior, both have finished their
second year. Marg, also a senior, will have completed four years as cheerleader
Four reserve cheerleaders were also chosen. They are four from the Sophomore
Class and have completed their first year of cheering for Creston. rf.. ia
