'We , We Saw. We Z N
Four short years ago, 128 Freshmen romped
through the doors of Fremont High School, eager
to embark on the "sea of learning."
Under the direction of Miss Orr, Miss Bowman,
Mr. Juska, and Mr. Provines, this young crew organ-
ized as a class and elected their president, Bob
Stocking, vice-president, Warren Johnson, and sec-
retary-treasurer, lla McGowen. In order to insure
a good start on the Student Council, the class also
elected Mary Jo Gilliland, Carol Murphy, Ron Stock-
ing, and Don Taylor to represent them in affairs of
student government. The Freshmen made a "big
splash" in the field of forensics, with Sally Wanen-
macher, Pat Wilson and Lavonne Wolters as 1st,
2nd, and 3rd place winners respectively in the
declamation division of the local contest. Equally
determined not to be outdone socially, the class
sponsored two parties, the first was a game fest in
the gym followed by the usual refreshments. The
second took the form of a rollicking skating party
at Hess Lake.
The fall of '49 found 117 of us ready to begin
the second lap of our eventful iourney.
The class lost no time in naming Chuck Witte-
veen, president, Sally Wanenmacher, vice-president,
Maynard DeKryger, secretary, and Arnie Rottman,
treasurer, while Warren Johnson, ,Phil Fry, Bette
Messinger, and Jim Schuiteman comprised our con-
tribution to the Student Council. Moreover, one of
our members, Bob Stocking, held the office of
treasurer of the Council, to which position he had
been elected by the entire student body. Our
advisers were Miss Bender, Miss Springborg, Mr.
Provines, and Mr. Rapson.
This year several of our male members came into
the limelight in the field of athletics. Bob Stocking,
Warren Johnson, and Don White made the first
team in football, while Arnie Rottman gained a
berth on the varsity basketball squad. Other class
members took part in orchestra, band, choir, and
various extra-curricular activities. Our class also
maintained our hold on the field of forensics with
Mary .lo Gilliland taking first place in the declama-
tion division of the local contest and continuing on
to place first in the District Speech Contest at Hart.
The vear ended with the Sophomores serving at
the Junior-Senior Banquet and another skating
party, this time at Shelby.
Our group again disbanded in the spring only to
return the following fall and be enrolled under the
title of Juniors. The class elected Phil Fry, Maynard
DeKryger, Lavonne Wolters, and Arnie Rottman to
the offices of president, vice-president, secretary
and treasurer respectively. Warren Johnson, Mary
Jo Gilliland, Don Taylor, and Arnold Dougan were
chosen to represent the class in the Student Council,
while three of our members were elected to Council
offices. These were Bob Stocking, vice-president,
Mary Smalligan, secretary, and Chuck Witteveen,
This year our members with a dramatic turn were
given a chance to demonstrate their talents. This
demonstration took the form of the class play,
"Home Sweet Homicide."
Also this year two newcomers copped honors in
the field of speech. These were Bette Messinger
an.d Betty Wright who won 2nd and 3rd place
respectively for their orations. Pat Wilson, a veteran
of previous contests, placed first in the oratorical
contest, while Mary .lo Gilliland again won honors
in the field of dramatic declamations.
ln the spring, the Juniors were faced with the
annual task of creating a banquet for the Seniors.
With a helping hand from our advisers, Miss Elm-
quest, Miss Sayles, Mr. Parker, and Mr. Durkee, we
decided on the theme, "life of a Senior," and
presented the affair with great success.
Finally in the fall of 1951 came the year we had
all looked forward to: the year when we should
be enrolled as Seniors. To lead us in this last
eventful year, the class elected Maynard DeKryger,
president, Chuck Witteveen, vice-president, Sally
Wanenmacher, secretary, Kenneth Frens, treasurer,
and Burton Wolters, assistant treasurer. Mary Jo
Gilliland, Barbara Wechsler, Bob Grant, and Ron
Stocking were chosen to represent the Seniors on
the Student Council. The presidency of this year's
council was entrusted to Bob Stocking while Phil
Fry took over as vice-president. Betty Messinger,
Lavonne Wolters, Chuck Witteveen, Warren John-
son, and Jim Robertson were appointed to comprise
the president's cabinet. Our advisers remained the
same as during our Junior year with the exception
of Miss Van Horn who replaced Miss Sayles.
This year brought more Seniors into prominence
in the field of sports. Everyone will remember Arnie
Rottman for his outstanding performances in basket-
ball, while Warren Johnson, Bob Stocking, and Phil
Fry deserve recognition for their prowess on the
As we go to press, events are still in the future.
The Seniors are still looking forward to the Senior
Play, "Cheaper By The Dozen," the Junior-Senior
Banquet, the Honor Banquet, the trip to Lansing,
and last but far from least, their skip trip to Chica-
go. Soon after these events will come the Bacca-
laureate Service and finally Commencement, termin-
ating our years at Fremont High School.
For many of us the Commencement exercises will
mark the end of our formal schooling. For others,
it will be merely a take-off to higher education. But
no matter what the future holds for the 1952 grad-
uates, we will always carry with us the pleasant
memories of our years at Fremont High School.
