Sophomore Class History
On the opening day of school, September 10, 1924, we had twenty-five Sophomores present. Those missing were Herbert Hilligus, Arvid Pederson, Emil Sutter, Iola Wehr, Kosie Takamura and James Lunceford.
Being an energetic class, we held our first class meeting on Tuesday, September 16, 1924, and the following officers were elected:
Henriette Myers President
Kenneth Wells Vice-President
Velma Hordorn Secretary
Joe Rankin Treasurer
Joe Enos Collector
Lenore Greene Historian

Our motto of the previous year, "On, sail on," was retained as well as our class flower, the red rose, and our class colors, red and white. We were most fortunate in getting for our class advisor, Miss Peekema, for being a dramatic coach, she was able to assist us in our class entertainment.
During the second week of school Emil Sutter returned to make the twenty-sixth Sophomore. In October, Arvid Pederson also returned: but Edwin Waterman, whose family moved to Galt, left to go to the Galt High School. In November, Inez Mason left school on account of ill health; we were very sorry to have her leave us.
Having in view the big event of the year for the Sophomores, the farewell banquet to the Seniors, a three-act play, entitled "Her Decision," with vaudeville in between acts was given on December 3, with Miss Peekema as the director. The play was a great success, and the class cleared over one hundred and fifty-four dollars.
At Christmas time the class presented Miss Peekema with a pearl necklace.
The Sophomore Class took an active part in all social functions, for when the Student Body gave its plays, a number of Sophomores were in the cast, in the orchestra, and in the Girls' Glee Club. In athletics, both girls and boys. the class was well represented.
Now, as the end of the school year is drawing near, arrangements for the farewell banquet are being made, which is to be held at the Courtland High School, May 2, and is certain to be a success, for every part of the school work the Sophomore class has ever done so far, has been a success.
