Marian G. Pickens ELMIRA UNION HIGH SCHOOL Elmira, Oregon 1956 FOREWORD Our school is primarily a place of learning, but it is also a place of laughter for we aren't too serious 3 bunch. Our willingness to help raise money for the Polio Drive, the fun we have at club initiations, OUI energetic efforts to keep our school attractive, our Student Body meetings, a typewriter pecking away, the school dances, our screaming and cheering at games, our small talk and laughter floating down the halls at noon or between classes, and our basketball team practicing--these things, too, are a part of our school. In classes and extra-curr'icular activitieswe also learn that responsibility, initiative, and private thinking, are encouraged to better fit us into this worldinwhich communism and democracy are striving for domination.

During the spring they presented a panel to the stu- dent body on student behavior based upon a survey which they took. This was later given at a P.T. A. meeting. Before commencement activities began the seniors cleaned the stage and gym. Class of 1956.
