SENIOR HISTORY On a golden autumn morning of 1939, one hundred and seventy-four "greenies" marched into H. H. S., not at all uniform as to size, appearance, and character, but their goals were set the same, that is, each was striving to do the best according to his ability. Immediately the fresh- men became acquainted with their fellow students and soon thereafter chose the following for business, financial, and social guidance: Raymond Kenyon, president, Roger Bennett, vice- president, Mary Ketcham, secretary, Pauline Chandler, treasurer. The first opportunity they had to show their ability was at the Spotlight that fall. Their particular act was called "The Man on the Street" in which each did a splendid piece of work. The second semester election results named Betty Ketchum, vice-president, Elisabeth French, secretary, Mary Ketcham, treasurer. Raymond Kenyon retained his office of president. After the former year of acquaintance, the sophomores immediately voted Mary Ketcham, president, Elisabeth French, vice-president, Bernadene Schantz, secretary, Betty Ketchum, treasurer. Within a few months, excitement of the Spotlight was raging once more. The sophomores presented an act entitled "Kings and Queensf, The main characters were: Donna Gerber, Potato Queen, Eunice Fisher, Miss America, Kenneth Lane, King Cotton, and mighty mite Orville Bush, Tennis King. Sports, one of the greatest recreations in high school, held much interest this year. Harmon Wilcox, William Kelly, and Francis Goggins won varsity letters in football. Kenneth Lane and Raymond Kenyon did their class justice by winning letters on the varsity basketball team. Outstanding in girls' sports for the year were Mary Ketcham, Elisabeth French, and Ruth McNinch. In the midst of the great hustle and bustle of the new semester, ballots were cast for class officers. Joseph Beck became president, Betty Singleton, vice-president, Ruth McNinch, secretary, Mildred Helmer, treasurer. Spring sports did not appeal to the sophomores this year, as of years before, although a few participated. Gordon Ironside was selected as the outstanding golfer. Harmon Wilcox was captain of the varsity tennis squad and the only sophomore letterman of the team. The fall of '41 appeared abruptly, and 152 juniors came to H. H. S. When the ballots were counted for the first semester election, Kenneth Lane became president, Elizabeth Doster, vice-president, Joyce Frey, secretary, Mildred Helmer, treasurer. Sports held a great deal of attention this year, and many participated. Raymond Kenyon and Kenneth Lane were voted as the most outstanding players in basketball. Juanita Swift was general chairman of the annual Ag-HE held in the fall. Then came the time when a great many students were about the school with lots of make-up on. Now, what on earth could be going on? The rehearsals for the junior play, of course. Donald Clark, Keith Brady, Dorothy Williams, Pauline Chandler, Robert Murphy, Duane Walters, Keith Pufpaff, and Marjorie Dryer were the main characters in "Foot-loose." Roger Bennett was student director. Second semester officers were: Mary Ketcharn, president, Francis Goggins, vice-president, Orth.a Hawhlitz, secretary, Juanita Swift, treasurer. The juniors sponsored the annual J-Hop for the seniors. The theme was Hawaiian with palm trees, beach umbrellas, a gaily colored canopy, and fragrant flowers for decorations. Com- mittee members were: Bernadene Schantz, general chairman, Gladys Hildebrandt, programs, Harmon Wilcox, music, Pauline Chandler, decorations, Elizabeth Doster, entertainment, Beverly Brown, invitations, Senta Furrow, refreshments, Francis Goggins, publicity. September rounded up the students once more and started them back to high school for their fourth year. Students were busy greeting old friends and new. Before the sensation of a new term had worn away, ballots were cast for the class officers. The following day MaryKetcham was announced as president, Pauline Chandler, vice-president, Layonatine Kinney, secretary, CContinued on next page.D
