The fall of ,42 was a great thriller to many freshmen, as they were turning a new leaf-being
welcomed into high school, meeting many new faces, and entering into new activities. Shortly
thereafter, one hundred and forty ballots were cast, selecting Frederick McDonald, president,
John Richardson, vice-president, Esther Ragla, secretary, Sally Goodyear, treasurer.
The freshmen showed great interest in sports this year. Ralph Gies, Bernard Manker, and
James Coleman proved their ability in basketball, and Ralph Gies was outstanding in football.
Among the girls, Mary Lockwood, Sally Goodyear, and Georgia Will deserve honorable mention
as good sportswomen.
The all-A students for the first semester were: Esther Ragla, Mary Lockwood, Beverly Brad-
ford, and Anne Goodyear.
At the beginning of the second semester, elections were held for new officers, the president,
vice-president and treasurer retained their offices. Joann Duck er was the newly-elected secretary.

The long, warm days of summer vacation were a great change from the first nine months at
Hastings High and prepared the freshmen of the previous year to enter school again in the fall
as a more prominent group, the sophomores. In the fall of 442 approximately one hundred and
fifty sophomores chose Thomas Dolan to direct and guide their classg Milo Coldren to take
Thomasls place when he was absent, Dorothea VanHorn to keep a record of their activitiesg
and Charleen Cappon to pay their bills.
A useful amount of sports talent was displayed by the boys of the sophomore class this year.
The outstanding players in football were Philip Frandsen, a letter winner, Richard Foster, and
Lawrence Fuller. Outstanding basketball players offensively were Lawrence Fuller and Paul
Myers. Philip Frandsen was recommended as an outstanding player defensively. A great deal
of talent and interest was shown in girls' sports by Madelyn Sigler and Merilyn Zuttermeister.
The record of the first semester was topped by Merilyn Zuttermeister, an all-A student.
The second semester election named Patricia Fewless, presidentg Franklin Bush, vice-presidentg
Lois Campbell, secretary, and Dorothea V anHorn, treasurer.
In the War Bond and Stamp contest, the sophomores were the first to buy a jeep. Their
sales totaled approximately nine hundred and forty-five dollars on the first day of the contest.
The sophomores are also proud to mention that the two declamation winners of the school
were chosen from their class, Aben Johnson receiving first place, and Loraine Schantz, second.
