On our first stop we found forty-nine Freshmen starting on their high school careers.  The class immediately organized under the leadership of efficient officers: President--Alice Goeke, Vice President--William Englebretson, Secretary--Ruth Johnson, Treasurer--Donald Lenz.  With Miss Bienfang as our adviser, the trying days of Froshdom passed smoothly and safely.


The fall of 1936 found forty-two Sophomores.  The well-chosen class officers led us successfully through this year.  President--LaVern Durst, Vice President--Lillian Kindt, Secretary--Esther Hegenbarth, Treasurer--Elmer Schwarze, and Echoes Staff representative--Alice Goeke.  We were guided by our adviser, Mr. Schwahn.  Seven members of our class played in the band while eight took part in forensics.  Our activities during the year proved a credit to the school as well as to the class.


Our next stop found the same group, ready for the added duties and increased responsibilities of full-fledged Juniors.  LaVern Durst was reelected President with Viola Thompson as Vice President and Verdelle Turnquist as Secretary and Treasurer.  Our class was again prominent in the activities of the school, placing first or second in most events.  This year Mr. Schwahn and Mr. Walker were our advisers.  Three Juniors had important roles in the all school play,  "Glass Dishes".  It was our year to give a prom, and we hop that it will be one long to be remembered.


The success we have achieved is evident since we are about to replace the Seniors in the work they have completed.  How well our duties will be performed is still a question.
