Your High School
g The world has progressed very much since the first Hastings high school class graduated in
1877, and along with it Hastings high school has advanced. But with all its material progress
it still stands for those ideals upheld during those years long ago.
g Honesty, perseverance, good citizenship-we find that it has conformed to these principles
and more. It has not only turned out honest, hard-working, desirable citizens. but it has given
our community, our state, and even our nation, some of their leaders and their finest men. Boys
and girls have paced these halls, and men and women have gone forth to do great things in many
branches of skill and science. Doctors, lawyers, merchants, statesmen, soldiers, sailors, fliers,
artists have been alumni of Hastings high school.
9 Our school has long been noted for its high grade of equipment, fine faculty, and most of
all its student spirit. In many corners of the world one may find evidence of the idealism,
tenacity, and courage fostered in Hastings high school. These qualities justify the opportunities
offered by a democratic and free form of education such as that which exists in America today.
g In our high school we develop a love of freedom which will never leave us through all the
years to come. As someone has said, "A complete and generous education is that which fits a
man to perform justly, skillfully, and magnanimously all the offices, both private and public,
of peace and war." High school aids our mental, spiritual, and physical growth. We are thankful
that we are in America where schools like Hastings high school are possible.

Q ln every institution there must be organization, people at the head ol' it and people behind
it. The people at the head of our schools are the superintendent. principals. and other adminis-
trative assistants. The people behind them are the hoard of education and taxpayers. These
people all work together to produce the ellicient and smooth-running schools we have today.
. A cross-section of the professional people of the community is represented in the board of
education. which consists ofa dentist. a highway inspector. an optometrist. a draftsman. and a
garage manager. These are all men elected by the people ol' the community to shoulder the
burden ol' succcssl'ully managing a school. Each ol' them has devoted much time and energy
to school problems and in return has received little more than the satisfaction derived from a
task well done.
Q Our superintendent. well-known in state and nation for his work. along with his stall' of principal,
assistant-principal. dean of girls. and secretary has worked for many years in the interests of
llastings high school. Their work is to continue to maintain and improve the school government
and class instruction. The school is in itself a tribute to their success.
