SENIOR CLASS HISTORY By Harry Boer Information! Here it is! In the year 1936 a group of 27 students enrolled in DeMotte High School to increase their knowledge by acquiring a better and more valuable education. And so we decided as did Longfellow in one of his little poems to leave our foot- prints behind us on the sands of time. During our first year we were guided by our sponsor, Mrs. Bernard and chose as our class officers, Robert Huhn, president; Dora Wright, .vice president; Clarence Boezman, secretary; and Ruby Myers, treasurer. We chose green and gold as our class colors and “Green But Not Fresh” as our class motto, and we will truly say that we were green but still not fresh. Some weeks later, the Seniors initiated us into hig-h school life and shortly thereafter a wiener roast was held in Grevenstuck’s woods. On December 11, our class presented an Indiana Day program, and a replica of the Indiana state banner was made and presented to the high school. Of the 27 pupils who had enrolled as Freshmen, 26 answered the roll call the next fall. We again chose Mrs. Ber- nard as our sponsor. This year Clarence Boezeman was elected president; Selma Recker, vice president; Doris Frame, secre- tary and Helen Zeck, treasurer. Blue and silver were chosen for the class colors and our motto was, “Forward Ever, Back- ward Never.” We sponsored a Thanksgiving Day Program also had two parties; a wiener roast and a watch party held at the home of our sponsor. During our Junior year 4 students decided to equit- uate, so only 22 members enrolled that fall. We chose as our sponsor. Miss Hewitt. We chose as our president, William Ro- wen; vice-president, Robert Huhn; secretary. Rose Anderson; and as our teasurer, Selma Recker. Our motto was “Character Is The Key To The Door Of Success”, and old rose and silver were our class colors. On December 13, the class presented a three-act com- edy play, “In Apple Blossom Time”. The proceeds of the play were used in financing a trip for the Juniors that spring. We also ordered our class rings as a remembrance of our high school days.

The following year 21 students enrolled so that they might finish their high school careers as Seniors. We again chose as our sponsor, Miss Hewitt, and elected Robert Huhn as our president; Charles Moolenaar, vice president; Johanna Van Kley, secretary, and Selma Recker, treasurer. We chose blue and gold for our class colors and we adopted as our class motto, “Ei ther Find a Path or Make One”. The play, “Spooky Tavern”, a mystery farce, was pre- sented February 27, and so we are planning to publish the fifth volume of the Keen Keener. And now as we go on our several ways, may we not think that we have acheived all, for we have but yet begun, but may we in departing leave behind us, our footprints on the sands of time. Footprints, that perhaps another. Sailing o ' er life’s solemn main, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother Seeing, shall take heart again. Let us, then be up and doing. With heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing. Learn to labor and to wait.
