Miss Mae D. Kinsey
A GREAT TEACHER
In thinking of Miss Kinsey, there
comes to mind a line from the 31st
chapter of Proverbs: "And her chil-
dren shall rise and call her bless-
Many are those of her former
"children" who have written from
the war fronts, from all walks Q' of
life, to tell her what a blessing her
understanding, her humor, her
love of the beautiful and true, her
insistence on work well done have
meant to them.
It is most fitting that the Eu-
genean should honor Miss Kinsey,
for it too, is one of her "children."
For many years she guided its
editors and staffs to produce a
record of Eugene high of which its
students might well be proud.
To a faithful and loyal friend, a
perfect teacher, and counsellor of
youth, Miss Mae D. Kinsey, the
Eugenean pays grateful and lov-
Requiescat in Pace
Although new this year to Eugene High
School, Mr. Micklewait has already won the
friendship and admiration of both students
and teachers. Under his able direction our
school has become reinvigorated with the earn-
est desire to make Eugene High a definite and
valuable contribution to this community. lt is
because of his understanding outlook, wise
guidance and fair judgment that so much has
been accomplished this year which will add
to the renown of our Alma Mater in future years.
Mr. Miclclewait came to us from Kelso,
Washington, where he was principal for nine
years. Reared on an ldaho farm, he attended
Oregon State and the University of Washington
to receive his Bachelor of Science and Master
or Arts degrees.
l-le has two sons-one a first lieutenant in
the Marine Corps and the other a student at
Francis Willard. Teaching seems to be the pro-
fession of the Miclcelwait family, since the
lieutenant's wife is a teacher in Washington
and Mrs. Micklewait is at present teaching at
Of the students of Eugene High Mr. Mickle-
wait says, . . they are good citizens . . .
thoughtful, pleasant and nice."
"There are always certain ambitions to
which one aspires, and mine seems to hare
been fulfilled in the acquisition of this posi-
tion as principal of Eugene high. I have sin-
cerely enjoyed my work during the past year
with the cooperative faculty and student body
of this prominent and tradition-fouruled in-
stitution. It is a pleasure to see active and en-
ergetic students at work laying the founda-
tions for the 'world of tomorrow', and to
know that you have had a share in guiding
those who will someday be entrusted with the
tasks of building the cities and shaping the
ideals of the future.
"I look with pleasant anticipation to the
years ahead and only hope that I shall be able
to successfully continue doing my part to
prepare the youth of today for their responsi-
bilities as the citizens of tomorrouff'
We of the student body have truly enjoyed
the able leadership of our new principal and
wish to extend to him our appreciation for the
fine cooperative spirit he has exhibited in work-
ing with us during this school year.,
"He is our leader, our adviser, and most of
all . . . our friend."
"A family Man, too . . . "

Not only did Eugene welcome a new principal to her
educational systern this year, but also a new superin-
tendent, Dr. Gunn. As evidenced by the reception that
he has been given by the students ot Eugene schools,
Dr. Gunn's pleasing personality has already won him
Before Corning to Eugene, Dr. Gunn held the position
ot Assistant Superintendent ot Schools in Portland, Ore-
gon, a position he had held tor the last three years. Dr.
Gunn received his Bachelor ot Science and Master ot
Arts degrees from the University ot Oregon, his doctor-
ate in education trorn Stanford University.
He was born in Lexington, Kentucky and lived there
until the age of ten, after which he received his educaf
tion from the tilth grade through high school at Herrnis-
ton, Oregon. He has resided in Portland tor the past
seventeen years. Dr. and Mrs. Gunn have three chili

At Eugene High School We have endeavored tc
make our school a vital asset to the community. We
have tried to develop in the students those character-
istics and interests, both social and personal, that are
so essential to useful and successful living in a demo-
During the school year of l944-45, our school govern-
ment was in the hands of one of the ablest students
who has ever held this office of student body president
of Eugene High, Warren Webster. Assisting him in
his duties were: Willard Dodds, vice-president: Freida
Koppe, secretary: Ardys Dahl, treasurer: and Willis
ln accordance with our democratic form of govern-
ment, each fifth period class elected a representative
to the Student Council, and it was his obligation to
keep his classmates well informed as to all that was
accomplished and discussed by this body. ln addition,
his job included the taking of student problems and
suggestions to the council for consideration. The voices
of these youths were regularly engaged in determining
the policies of our student-controlled institution and its

progress made by us during this year. With such
leaders as these we can face the future with confidence.

Stately She Stands
Stately she stands. our Alma Mater,
Bright with the sunlight ot youth:
Down through the years our Alma Mater
Has stood for brave honor and truth.
Blood-red her vines' clinging fingers
Bind her walls close to our hearts:
Spring-like her memory lingers
Through the years though they lead us apart
Each stone in her white. gleaming portal
Is a symbol on symbols piled high.
A monument glowing, immortal
A sign oi Youth's star in Liie's sky.
-Juliette Claire Gibson
With each succeeding year the list of those
who have passed from the portals of Eugene
High and entered the world of reality, lengthens.
We, the Senior Class of l945, are adding about
270 names to that record. But even as we leave
these halls and all the pleasant memories that
they hold for us, Eugene High is making pre-
parations to open its doors to another group-
the class of '47, and so the wheel of education
Yet, it seems as though it were only yester-
day that we were sophomores wandering be-
wilderedly about the halls of this "huge" struc-
ture and asking seniors where to find rooms 2l5
and 3l2 or how to get to the library. During that
first and, as usual, difficult year, we entrusted
the task of leading us in school activities to Don
Hlebechuck, Freida Koppe, and Lidy Lu Swof-
ford as president, secretary, and treasurer re-
spectively. Under their direction we made our
formal debut by presenting the "Hobo Hobble,"
the annual sophomore dance. Using decora-
tions of clothes lines, log stumps, and old
clothes, we gave the auditorium a somewhat
realistic semblance of a hobo camp.
Unfortunately, Don, our sophomore presi-
dent, departed in our junior year as did also our
sophomore adviser, Mr. Parks. However, we
found other talented leaders to guide us
through this very successful year in the persons
of Cal Hersey as president, Bill Hutchinson,
vice-presidentg and again Lidy Lu Swofford and
Freida Koppe as secretary and treasurer. As
juniors we suddenly displayed a real interest
in our various preassigned activities, and with
the assistance of our advisers, Miss Hayes and
Mr. Goodnough, we planned and presented
"Club 45," our lunior Dance, preceded by the
assembly "Stagedoor Canteen", both of which
proved enjoyable events. However, our crown-
ing achievement was the lunior-Senior Prom,
Reverie Rendezvous. This formal ball, under
the guidance of Dave Stone, was one of the most
colorful dances given during the year and ac-
cording to most critics surpassed in beauty the
majority of previous promenades.
As seniors, we have found ourselves in a
whirl of activity-activity which has made this
year one of the most spirited in the recent his-
tory of our Alma Maier. Glenn Warberg, serving
as our Senior Class President, has worked co-
operatively with Vice-President Bob Moffit, Sec-
retary lanice Murray, and Treasurer Shirley
Kissling on the many tasks to which a graduat-
ing class falls heir. ln addition to their regular
duties, these class officers directed the presenta-
tion of our semi-formal dance, "The Snow Ball,"
which, as its name suggests, was based on a
But now all these events have become mere-
ly memories for tomorrow, and as we leave we
cannot help looking back and regretting that
they are over. ln any case, we wish to express
our sincere appreciation for the cooperation
which our advisers have given us during these
three years. With the experience of the past be-
hind us we feel that we have little to fear from
"A daily session . . . "

Congratulations to the Iunior Class for its worthy
contributions to the colorful and varied social pro-
gram carried on in Eugene High School during the
school year of l944-45.
The luniors got off to an auspicious start in late
Cctober, by sponsoring a new and novel activity,
"Sadie Hawkins' Week" which featured tags, noon
dances, a noon drawing, and had as its highlight
the "Sadie Hawkins' Dance" that followed the hard-
fought Eugene-Milwaukee football game.
The next event offered by the luniors was the
annual lunior Dance, "The Holly Folly," on Decem-
ber l5, which, under the capable leadership of the
class president, Wesley Nicholson, proved an out-
standing success. The dance was an all-school sport
affair, embellished with all the aspects of the Christ-
The climax of all social activities each school
year is the lunior-Senior Prom given by the Iuniors
for the graduating class. This year's Promenade was
presented May 4, and the committee of luniors, head-
ed by co-chairmen Alice Kingman and Mike Calla-
han, chose and put into effect a unique theme. The
dance, into which the luniors put a great deal of time
and effort, was truly one befitting the departing
With this final tribute to the Class of '45, the
luniors brought to a close their underclass activities
which were so successfully carried out by the able
class advisers, Mrs. Robertson and Mr. Mickelson,
by competent officers, and by cooperative class
lf these luniors, who will shortly assume the re-
sponsibilities of the Senior Class, carry the energetic
and ambitious spirit which they have demonstrated
during this school year with them into the future,
their success in the world of tomorrow is a certainty.

Junior- enior Promenade
On May 4 the Iunior Class held its annual numerous gaily-colored deep-sea denizens.
dance to honor the outgoing Seniors-the lunior-
Senior Prom. Under the theme "Blue Grotto,"
the dance was decorated in an undersea motif,
centered around the simulated stern of a par-
tially buried, wrecked sailing ship cast on the
A change from the usually bare doors was
the porthole effect achieved by rounding the
corners with lightweight wood, and covering the
doors themselves with dark-colored paper.
Around the "portholes" cavorted brilliantly-col-
ored, bubble-blowing tropical fish, and between
the two doors was the orchestra section, situat-
ed on the north side for the first time in many
years. The section was elevated, two rounded
steps leading to the platform from which Art
Holrnan's seven-piece orchestra sent melodic
renditions of familiar selections throughout the
Adorning the walls, further enhancing the
undersea motif, were several gorgeous mer-
maids, replete with tails and leis of flowers, and
Ensconced in the southeast corner was the
everwelcome refreshment bar, complete with
blue and red leather-covered metal stools. The
bar was rounded, decorated in a nautical effect.
An entirely novel idea served to complete
the scene-fa huge net acting as a false ceiling,
with floats suspended from it was raised in the
center to form a dome. This was the most diffi-
cult undertaking of the entire dance, according
to the decoration committee, as it had to be
made by hand from string, then lifted into posi-
The entertainment during intermission was
conducted by MC Ronnie Fraedrick, and con-
sisted of a trombone duet, vocal numbers by a
quartet of junior boys, and two diminuitive
dancers who gave an excellent and unusual
Soft lighting and a congenial atmosphere
contributed to an evening to be long-remember
ed by the guests of the lunior Class.

Horrors! Was the first thought of all the faculty,
juniors, and seniors of Eugene High when the num-
ber of sophomores who had registered became
known. The class began the year with the munificent
sum of 4l9 and by midyear had increased to 446, to
make it the largest class in the school's history.
With so many members, a class should have
many prominent and active students, and it does.
As proof, Marcia Murray was chosen Queen of the
War Chest drive, Sigrid Skade and Lucille Zarzan
were Princesses of the Beaux Arts Ball, and several
of the boys were outstanding in sports, winning their
coveted "E's." Doris lean Miller and junior Gray won
prizes in the Amateur Show, and Don Bench was
elected President of the Lane junior Red Cross
The "Beano" carnival concession was a great
success, as was the February 23 dance, the "Hatchet
Hop," under the leadership of the officers, the gen-
eral chairman, lohn McNutt, and the excellent guid-
ance of Mrs. Davis and, Mr. Moore. These events
helped to develop leadership and responsibility in the
students, provided entertainment for the entire stu-
dent body, and helped to supply sufficient funds to
fill the class' needs.
For the past year the of-
ficers of the Sophomore
Class have been Ward
Haynes, president: Dick
and Diane Beairsto, secre-
At midyear, a dancing class for sophomores was
organized, under the leadership of Dick Dahlberg.
Two university students gave lessons once a week
for a small fee to those interested, and the classes
were unusually well-attended.
ln all projects to further the war effort, each boy
and girl of this class has contributed generously and
offered his services in attaining the goals. Many have
given time ordinarily devoted to recreation in order
to support these causes and have shown their versa-
tile capabilities in numerous ways. A special project
of the class was the collection of books for the Camp
Adair hospital. Some of the boys entered the armed
services and others, both boys and girls, worked in
part-time jobs to help employers combat the manpow-
er shortage which has become so very acute during
the last few months of school.
Throughout the year, various sophomores have
stood in the limelight of both social and curricular
activities-some to remain, others to fade into the
background. Their possibilities in the future, both in
school and out, are unlimited. They may choose to
remain unacclaimed nobodies, but with a beginning
like theirs, we feel assured that they can but succeed.

The annual Beaux Arts Ball, the first of the twc
formal dances presented during the year, was the
' ' t f the winter season. lts
outstanding social even o
sponsors, the Paletteers, put hours of planning and
work into the development of the theme, "Tropical
Nights", and according to most observers succeeded
in making their ball a worthy challenge to those
that will be held in Eugene High in the future.
Pastel, white, and blue draperies lowered the
ceiling while a mirror ball accented the center of
the room by reflecting the light from the softly color-
ed spots. Large tropical birds and jungle flowers
were used against the walls of forest-green draperies,
and ten real palm plants were placed around the
'h old trunks and
floor. Several other palms wit g
' ere also used, adding much
green metallic leaves w
color to the attractive arrangement.
The highlight of the dance was, of course, the
crowning of the Queen, Gail Smith, chosen by the
students during the previous week of activity. The
Queen, dressed in a lovely formal ,was escorted to
her throne by lohn McNutt as Bobbie lean Bussell,
leanne lefferis and Norma Eaton sang a waltz time
fanffare. The Queen's court followed her, Princess
Elaine Terry of the Senior Class being escorted by

by their escorts with tiaras of simulated pearls ana
The enteitaiment, under the direction of Corky
Mobley as master of ceremonies, consisted of a short
comical skit, two classical piano numbers and a
couple of popular songs.
Everything indicated that the dance had been
well planned and that much credit was due the
Paletteers, particularly the committee members ir.

Elspas, and ludy Clark.

and his orchestra that night of lanuary ,
added another bright spot in their memory book
of the past.
Among the early highlights of the school year was
the presentation of a well planned Thanksgiving
assembly, the theme of which was "Understanding
The Advanced Drama class, under the able di-
rection of Mrs. Houglum, and with an elaborate set-
ting, provided by Mr. Banister's art classes, appro-
priately presented the Russian play "The Boor."
"The Boar," as enacted by the leading stars, lo-
Ann Appling and Gerald Fox, was well received bY
an audience who appreciated its moments of humor.
A brief summary of the performance follows:
ln her beautiful colonial home, Helena lvanova
Popov lloAnn Applingl is in mourning for her late
husband, who had passed away seven months be-
fore. She keeps herself in complete solitude, except-
ing the presence of her servant, Luka CDeryl Rossi,
and vows she will see no one. One day a dashing
young lieutenant of the cavalry lGerald Foxl forces
his way into her home, demanding that she immedi-
ately pay a long delinquent debt contracted by her
husband. Refusing, Helena consents to marry him.
The grand finale of the play is the passionate em-
brace shown above.
"The Stolen Prince," presented during this same
assembly, was enacted by a large cast which in-
cluded Art Iohnson, Carl Gilbert, Earlene Koepp,
Clay Thomason, Dorothy Miller, Forest Rogers, Iohn
Porter, Evelyn Maser, lohn McAloon, Ken lverson,
Bettye Bowen, Maxine Christensen, Margaret Brown
and Betty lo Beck. The play was entirely a satire on
Chinese life, a comedy which had as its plot the
curious circumstances that resulted from the ac-
cidental loss of a Chinese prince, destined to be the
King of China.
"The fno hall"
The annual senior dancefthis year under the
title of "The Snowballnfwas held in the auditorium,
Under the able direction of Bob Buchanan, decor'-
ation chairman, the walls were covered with paper
and painted in gorgeous shades of blues and purples
to represent mountains looming against an evening
sky. Silver stars were scattered at random to further
the illusion. Crepe paper streamers, originating in a
chandelier that had been placed high in the rafters
and alternating in color from smoke-gray to deep
purple, were draped to meet the Wall decorations.
Groups of evergreen trees, ranging in size from two
to twelve feet and enhanced by bits of "snow" were
placed in the corners of the room and along the
walls. Wide benches, covered with colorful Indian
olankets, were also arranged around the edge of the
The stage was done in the same manner as the
rest of the room, but in this case the streamers ex-
tended completely to the floor, creating a cave-like
effect, About the base of the stage was placed a
beautiful sign, done in cotton and silver tinsil on a
blue background, bearing the legend "The Snow-
Ball." ln the center of the floor was a grove of ever-
green trees, artistically arranged about a silver pool,
a snowbank, and a romantically located bench. The
grove also sheltered a realistic snowman who smiled
benignly upon the dancers as they circled past. ln
keeping with the other elaborate decorations the
refreshment stand was done in an entertaining and
novel manner, having been constructed to represent
a tiny, rustic shack, complete with Windows and a

ardson, Wayne Stone, and Norman Diebel-did an
excellent job in coordinatingthe efforts of the many
Workers and from all reports succeeded in making
this annual affair a success.
Despite difficulties in setting a definite date for
their dance, the Sophomores produced one entirely
in keeping with the holiday spirit of the time, as it
was held on February 23, the day after Washington's
Large caricatures of Martha and George Wash-
ington adorned the usually bare stage curtains and
large paper axes and cherries further carried out the
motif. Around the sides, in the corners, and in front
of the stage were logs with axes embedded firmly in
them, reminding one of the cherry tree fable.
Although the dance was a non-date affair, it was
well-attended and enjoyed by members of all classes.
The lunior Class of 44445 presented, as one of its
contributions, a Christmas sport dance, the Holly
Folly. The dance was held shortly before Christmas
vacation, and to further the prevalent holiday spirit
the decorations and theme featured Christmas trees,
glass ornaments and "snow". The center of the dance
floor was occupied by an enormous fir tree which
reached nearly to the rafters. Large, soft-colored lights
and tinsel Were used for decorations, giving the tree
a soft, luminous effect. The lights from the tree also
cast shadows on the dancers as they glided around
the floor about whose edges smaller Christmas trees,
which were like their large cousin, had been placed.
That old Christmas favorite, mistleloe was located in
convenient places and proved to be good material
for use in decorating.
Like the mistletoe, the Holly Polly proved itself oi
success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who at-
"Jerry Breaks A Date"
"Vtfhen a one-act tarce contains a plot suitable io:
a three-act play, and crarns into its twenty-tive min-
utes the situations, action, and humor ot a long
comedy, that's good news for the director who wants
something different in a one-act tarcef' Thus "lerry
Breaks a Date" was for Mrs. Houglum, Bl-l.S. drama
instructor . . . and, having chosen a likely and
capable cast, this play proved to be the success that
it had promised.
ln an assembly ot Ianuary 26, the drama classes
enacted this comedy and found the usually critical
audience sincerely enjoying the presentation. Set in
a simple but appropriate interior, "terry Breaks a
Date" was filled with rapid, natural action, and real-
istic, laughable dialogue.
When lerry lohnson, played by Clay Thomason,
tinds that his sister Cleanne Gibson? through the con-
niving ot his social-minded Mother and Aunt CBeverly
Brown and Dorothy Ferrelll, has been forced into a
date with an "intelligent, bespectacled, and very un-
attractive young scientist" who is visiting their little
city, and learns that she not only does not want the
date because it will make her the laughing-stock oi
her triends, but also because it will anger her
"steady," he decides to do something about it.
Dressed like a young woman, and enlisting the aid
ot his Father, who is dressed in his Villain's costume
for the community play, "The Villain and Lily Belle,"
he uses "simply psychology" on the unwanted date,
Wilfred Winfield CDoug Brinkmanl, to the result which
hardly resembles psychology, but lett the audience
weak with laughter. All in all, the play was a real
success, tor which credit is due not only the di-
rector and the two leading student actors, but espe-
cially lerry's "Father," Mr. Kienzle, whose versatile
abilities added intensely to the merriment of the au-

and the week featured tags, dances,
and a welcome party for the "Sophs".
Another important "week" arranged by
the Council was the traditional Be-Up
Clean-Up Week which was directed this
year by Bill Hutchinson. The event was
developed to improve the appearance oi
the school and school grounds as well
as the appearance oi the students. ln
this connection, grounds clean-ups,
locker clean-outs, and room inspections
were held at various times during the
week. The two rooms selected as the
cleanest in school were Mrs, Davis' 2ll
and Miss Deierlein's 315 typing room.
The highlight oi the week was the sport
dance, the Soap Suds Slide which was
held Friday evening, March 23. At the
dance, the boy and girl voted the neat-

The Pep Club is organized to symbolize and represent school
spirit, and to help in carrying out the school athletic plan.
Aside from regular meetings and group cheering at all
athletic games, the Pep Club sponsored an initiation, two ban-
quets, and a dance.
Eighteen Seniors, fifteen luniors, and fifteen Sophomores were
elected to the club by all of the girls in roll rooms. With the new-
ly elected members the membership totaled ninety. The initia-
tion and potluck was held on the evening of October l2, l944.

pions. Hostesses for the evening were Senior Pep Club girls,

hostesses while Sophomore girls served. Lorraine Seaberg was
in charge. Tables were cleverly arranged by Helen McGilli-
cucldy, decoration chairman.

The Paletteers is the Eugene High art organization
dedicated to creating and improving art in the school.
This club had one of the most outstanding in-
creases in membership among any of the school
organizations during the past year, rising from 40
to 87, more than double their initial membership. Any-
one interested in art is eligible tor membership and
at the beginning ot the school year several outstand-
ing students ot Eugene High were given honorary
memberships. The ones thus honored were: Corky
Mobley, lim Luckey, Lorraine Seaberg, and Lidy Lu
The Beaux Arts Ball and All School Carnival were
the events which highlighted the Paletteers' activities
for the year, but they completed several other sucf
cesstul projects such as decorating the class rooms at
holiday seasons, providing an appropriate setting tor
the lce Follies, redecorating the art browsing room
for club members, and participating in banquets
with the Uni-High Paletteer Club.
The otticers ot the club were: Bob Elspas, presi-
dent, Dale Towne, vice-president: Doris lorgensen,
secretary, Phyllis Hanrahan, treasurer, lanice Mur-
ray, ambassador ot good-will, and Robert Banister,

tor. There were about Zl members in the club,
and one faculty member, Mr. Chess, having
earned a letter as manager of the football team.
This is the only known faculty member to re-
ecive a letter at Eugene High. Claire Keeney,
the Yell Leader, was also a member.
The E Club sponsored a dance the first
semester, but second semester they voted for
a picnic. This schedule is similar to the one
now in use by the E Club.
Some everyday tasks of the E Club are:
keeping order in the cafeteria line, patrolling
the halls, keeping order at games, helping
athletic teams to get publicity, keeping order on
the school grounds, as well as many other minor
tasks. The E Club members go about the job of
patrolling and keeping order armed with the

The purpose of the E Club is to create a spirit
of unity within the club, and to develop in its
members qualities of good sportsmanship,
scholarship, leadership, and citizenship.
The original E Club was formed in the fall
of l9l6 by Isaac Newman, then captain of the
football team. Only the students who had won
a letter in some sport were eligible for mem-
bership in the club. The first meeting was held

offenders are "hacked" by some burly member
of the E Club.
During this year the familiar winter and
two spring initiations were held for those earn-
ing their letters in the various sports for the
first time. The traditional rules were followed
rather closely, as far as the war would permit
of course, with the usual sights of lipstick-dab-
bed initiates carrying the books of old mem-
bers, traveling down the halls on their hands
The sophomores were blessed by being
allowed to paint the "E" on the southern slope
cf Skinner's Butte on two different occasions.
Since this procedure is also traditional, familiar
methods were used.
At the All-school Carnival, the club sponsor-
ed a dancing booth, girls or boys could dance
with any E Club member in the booth for ten
Unfortunate initiates .
As usual, the E Club cooperated with the
Pep Club to put on the E Club-Pep Club dance.
Glen Warberg and Corky Mobley were co-
chairmen representing the E Club.
A special activity of the club this year was
the taking over of noon entertainment on Tues-
days and Thursdays during the second semes-
ter. This was formerly under the auspices of the
Axemen's Council, but was relinquished be-
cause the E Club needed means of supplement-
ing their funds.
Considered from every aspect, the E Club
had a very successful year under the leader-
ship of Clay Thomason. Clay ruled the Club
with an iron hand, and with Hank Kuchera as
adviser, the fellows accomplished a great deal.
Other oficers of the club were: Andy Bodner,
vice-president, Harold Mclntyre, secretary-
treasurerg and Ronald I-lam, sergeant-at-arms.
Bill Harber was vice-president at the first of the
year, but later went into the Navy.

The Eugene High A Cappella choir, under the di-
rection ot Glenn Grittith, started a very successful
year with 76 members.
The highlight of the year was the A Cappella's
participation in the Eugene High Concert, on April
l7, at McArthur Court
The choir presented varied programs throughout
the year, singing tor lodges and clubs in Eugene.
Small groups ot the choir sang tor special occasions,
including a program, "Schools at War", over KOBE.
At the beginning ot the second semester, the
choir took in l7 new members, making it the largest

The Eugene High School band, under the
direction of Douglas Orme, has had a progress-
ive cmd eventful year.
Besides playing for football games, basket-
ball games, and assemblies, the band has par-
ticipated in bond shows, pep rallies, parades,
and has given a program for the junior high
and grade schools. One out-of-town trip was
made to Albany to play for the last football
game of the year. The band also participated
in the Eugene High Concert given April 17, at
McArthur Court. The students who worked on
the committee responsible for the presentation
of the concert were Gwen Chaney, tickets: Caro-
lyn Thompson, publicity: Robert Pfeiffer and
Norman Read, arrangements.
The officers of the year were: first semester,
Kenneth Bumpus, president: Gary Morgan, vice-
presidentg Nonda Iohnson, secretaryg Helen Mc-
Adams, librarian: Dick Dorr, manager: and
Carolyn Thompson, publicity manager. There
were two changes in the officers during the sec-
ancl semester: Donald Youngquist became presi-
dent and loe Kelly manager.
Our school band has proved itself a valu-
able asset to the student body, not only due to
its ability to entertain at the various school
functions but also due to its influence in raising
school spirit in support of Eugene High's many

This year Eugene High's orchestra consisted of
thirty eager musicians led by a capable maestro,
Orchestra has been held every Monday, Wed-
nesday and Friday mornings at 7:45 in the band
room. The necessity of such an early class was due
to the fact that the school schedule did not allow time
for a regular period.
Before rehearsals there was always the tuning
of the string section to be done with the occasional
mending of a broken string, bow or bridge and the
requisite preparation of the wind instruments. Then
followed the problem of "wheres the music?" There
was seldom a cessation of activity in these moments
before practice commenced, but when it came time
to play everyone went right to Work.
During the year of l944-45 the orchestra has
participated in several programs. its members play--
ed for school assemblies, at the Eugene Hotel for
the Lions Club, and for the Parents Teachers Associa-
tion of Eugene High School. ln addition, they enter-
tained a rural school and presented two programs
at McArthur Court-one of which was a portion of
the Eugene High Concert. The orchestra was one of
the four musical groups presented at that time.
L. Sanchez. D. Sorenson. B. Oakes.
Officers of the year have been Bernice Oakes,
presidentg Donna Sorensen, vice-president, and

A large variety of music has been played by the
orchestra and some of the favorites were: Russian
Sailors' Dance by Reinhold Gliere, Black Eyes by
Horlick and Stone, Hungarian Comedy Overture
by Keler and Bela, Strike Up the Band and Spirit of
America by George Gershwin, the theme from the
Piano Concerto in B Flat Minor by Tschaikowsky, and

during the week for this purpose.
Later in the year lanice Willian organized the
basketball tournament, setting practice nights, or-
ganizing the teams, and notifying the captains of
the dates each was to play.
While outdoor sports could not be engaged in,
many of the girls ice-skated or bowled, and during the

ed a great deal of pleasure, but kept
them in good physical trim.
Sweety Bappaports badminton turn-
outs were the best-attended of any sport
in comparison to its importance. Many
girls were surprised to learn the ease
with which the bird slipped through a
hole in their racquet that on closer in-
spection wasn't there at all.
ln the spring, with the cessation of
rain, leanne lefferis started qualifying
rounds of golf, and later a tournament
loanne Frydenlund began softball
turnouts at about this time, and several
teams from each class participated in
the tournament games. Although the
girls were not professional ball players,
fancy curves were displayed by one or
two of the pitchers, and even a few
"home run kings" were developed.
ln March, four of the most active
senior girls were selected by the Coun-
cil as honor girls, these being Virginia
Bloom, Cassie Hyde, Muriel Bappaport,
and Billie Bowley.
Group business meetings were held
monthly during a potluck, arranged
each time by a group from the Council,
who prepared a program, games, or
dancing. One of the highlights of the
year included an award banquet.

years ago for the purpose of bettering the students'
skill in archery.
The 4-H building at the fairgrounds was again
secured as a practice range for the club. This build-
ing provided a good indoor range and a place Where
the members could meet and have potlucks, parties,
or similar social gatherings.
During the past year the officers Were: Glen len-
sen, president: Ray Bissell, vice-president, Dick Smith,
secretary-treasurer, Leland l-laldorson and Donald
Sorensen, range managers.

For the third straight year the Rifle Club has had
to limit its membership to twenty-five. The club has
had a difficult time continuing this year because of
the difficulty in obtaining ammunition.
The purpose of the Rifle Club is to promote better
and more accurate shooting and the safe handling
of firearms. Medals and certificates are granted by
the National Rifle Association to those qualifying for
them and many of the members have been awarded

they were continued this year. They Were sponsored by the Spanish Club

The Camera Club is both a social and an educa-
tional organization. Despite the wartime shortage of
film and other photo materials, members have had
a great deal of fun during the year, learning to print
and enlarge pictures.
Some members assisted the annual staff in taking
pictures for the feature section and were supplied
priority film for this purpose. This gave the club a
means of using its talent as well as aiding the publi-
cation of this Eugenean.
To maintain a pleasant social aspect for the club,
meetings were held once each week and potlucks
ance every month.

The Service Club is an organization that is op-
erated for the benefit of the school. It renders serv-
ices in the following ways: selling tickets at games
and dances: taking tickets at games and assembliesg
and assisting in the many odd jobs that must be done
around the school. lts duties thus make it a vital club,
but unfortunately one which has received little pub-
licity or commendation for the important work it so
Two potlucks were held this year, one in Ianuary
for initiation of new members, and the second in
March for installation of officers and initiation. ,

The Pack Rats, Eugene High's outdoor club, en-
gages in a complete program of outdoor sports: hik-
ing, climbing, and camping in the fall and spring,
and skiing during the winter.
Probably the outstanding activity of the club was
its participation with the National Ski Patrol and the
Fourth Fighter Command in a program for training
aircraft search units to do rescue work in the event of
downed aircraft in the mountains. This included week-
ly trips to the ski areas where the members developed
their skiing, camping, map-reading, and first aid
technique under authorized supervision. The Pack
Rats were unique among the school clubs in having
this opportunity to cooperate with the government
in an essential service.
Mr. Lyon, as new adviser of the club, was very
interested in its welfare, and with Hank Wittwer, the
president, was largely responsible for the organiza-
tion and supervision of the trips. Bob McNeil was
vice-president, and Warren Webster was secretary-
treadrer. The club had its own photographer, Stew-
art Rankin, who kept a graphic record of their treks.
Because of the type of organization and activities
the membership was limited to twenty-five, seniors
and boys having previous experience given prefer-
ence. Many of the fellows had spent the summer in
the forest service, and all of the officers had worked
two years as suppression-crew members, where they
received practical woods experience.
During the year, the boys covered over lUO,UOG
"Pack Rat miles" in an exciting year crowded with
well-planned service projects and recreational activ-
As a result of their interest, sportsmanship, ana
cooperation, the Pack Rats have already become
well-known among local outdoor organizations. Eu-
gene High should be proud of them.

The Ambassadors were organized in late Noveme
The purposes of the group are to provide Chrisf
tian fellowship and to forward Christian ideals among
high school students, Every Wednesday during the
noon hours, meetings were held, the average attend-
ance being about 55 students, representing approxi-
mately ten denominations.
The Ambassadors provided an opportunity for
all high school students to participate in the pro-
gramsy the students either took charge themselves
or invited guest speakers of different denominations.
Some of the guest speakers were: Harlin Harris,
young evangelist: Rev. R. Moon, Congo Missionary,
Dr. Brown, evangelistg Dr. Ronald L. Crozier, evan-
gelistg Dr. Kallenback, blind evangelist.

The Assembly Committee, consisting of five teach-
ers and seven students appointed by the Student
Body President, planned and presented many ex-
cellent programs throughout the year. Emphasis was
placed on holding assemblies regularly, and, thanks
to the fine cooperation of the students and faculty
with the committee, assemblies were presented week-
ly except during examination periods.
The year's programs were well varied and includ-
ed almost every type of entertainment. The commit-
tee arranged for several outside groups to present
programs and approved various assemblies that
were given by school organizations.
Of the few pay assemblies, the most outstanding
was the amateur show which was well received not
only by the students but by the teachers and parents
alike, and might profitably become a yearly feature.
Meeting periodically, with the Student Body Presi-
dent as chairman, the committee was one of the
factors contributing to the success of the year as a

Last year's P.T.A. dance program was enlarged
this year and became the Recreation Program with
Mrs. Stan Summers and the Reverend Wesley G.
Nicholson of the P.T.A., and Miss Minerva Cfriffis,
dean of girls, as advisers. Eighteen students repre-
sented the Sophomore, lunior and Senior Classes re-
Dances were held in the gym after all home foot-
ball games and after the district play-off game in
basketball. On nights when there were no other
school activities, the Committee arranged for game
rooms as well as dances, and as many as four hun-
dred and fifty students attended these affairs.
A special dance was held April 20 for the Stamp
and Bond Committee and a aueen elected by the stu-
dents was given an elaborate crowning. ln May,
ninth graders from both junior high schools were in-
vited to attend one of these special dances, Sopho-

With the close of this l944-45 sports' season Hank
Kuchera will have added a brilliant chao'er to the
history of his coaching career. The excellent guid-
ance and training which he gave our teams enabled
them to chalk up vicfory upon victory and walk
away with both No-Name League titles without a
defeat for the first time in the history of Eugene High.
As a ccach goes . . . so the team goes, and the
past 'two year's victorious seasons clearly reveal
the abilities of "Kuch". His sincere interest in the
welfare of the boys and strong convictions of the
importance of the development of good character
oualities have made him popular. To obtain the best
performance from his teams, Kuchera has outlined
and enforced a detailed training program, the results
of which are evident.
Summing up l944-45, Hank has the following to
say, "Speaking for myself, I know that this has been
the most successful season of my career. The boys
were grand fellows to work with and deserved every
victory they won."
Three cheers to a fine coach and a swell guy,
Duane Mellem, the other member of Eugene High's
coaching staff, Mr. Mellem is known to most every-
one as just "Mel," Besides being' head baseball
coach, assistant football and basketball coach, he is
cne of the large factors in the high spirit and morale
incorporated by the athletes and students during the
past year. Mel completed his second year of lunior
Varsity coaching with flying colors. His teams did
better than average in football and the "B" squad in
basketball tied for the championship of their league.
lt's the thankless task of Mel to teach the sopho-
mores and newcomers in the school the fundamentals
and basic systems carried on by Hank Kuchera's
basketball and football teams, by the looks of the
sophomores coming up for next year he has done a
At the first of the year, "auditions" were held for
cheer leader teams. Two teams, each composed of
two boys and two girls, competed in a tryout before
a general assembly of the student body, and the
one composed of Ronnie Anderson, "Pete" Peterson,
Norma lean Richardson, and "Sweety" Rappaport
was selected by the Student Council as the better of
the two. Later in the year, near the end of the basket-
ball season, Corky Mobley was added to the team,
thus making our cheer-leading group the largest in
the school's history.
Due to the exceptionally large schedules which
Eugene High's teams completed in the two major
sports, our yell team was kept busy, often traveling
once or twice a week to attend out-of-town games . . .
and they usually got there, too! ln addition to yelling
at the games, this cheering band was the center of
activity at the several pep assemblies and rallies
given before major contests. i
During football season the weather was often
cold and the fields deep with mud, but these leaders
"Where school Snirit counts '
were out there, leading the students and "giving out"
with their pep to bolster the team's morale.
Again in basketball season, they were out on the
floor, faided by the band in the latter part of the
yearl, going through their antics during every game
in a manner which made the team feel that the stu-
dents were behind them to the fullest extent.
Throughout the year new yells were developed
by them, some suggested by students, and these with
their many other novel ideas for leading the yells
aided greatly in keeping the school spirit in the top
bracket. Although the boys would probably have
maintained the record breaking wins of the past year
without the support which our student body gave
them. yet the very existence of a high school spirit
added immeasurably to the interest and importance
of our contests . . . particularly when such spirit was
manifested in enthusiastic yells.
Co-Captain Ronald Ham
Eugene High was represented in 1944 by one of
the best football teams in its history. Considered by
close followers as the best team since the mythical
state champions of 1936, the Axemen won eight
games-lost only one lto North Bend, out of the dis-
trictl. ln the No-Name League, Eugene was unbeaten,
untied, and unscored upon. A strong indication of
the team's success is pointed out by the fact that
they placed 5 men on the No-Name League A11 Sta.
team: Ends, Dale Warberg and Darrell Robinson,
center, Ronald Hamg halfback, Bill Hutchinson: and
full-back, Andy Bodner. Honorable mention went to
quarter-back, Bill Harbery tackle, A1 Palmateerg and
guards, Corky Mobley and Marvin Reynolds, ln
addition, Bill Hutchinson received the Simmon's cup
annually awarded the outstanding player.
"What is Eugene going to use for a football team
this season?" This was a common question met by
Coach Henry Kuchera at the beginning of the season.
With six lettermen lone regularl returning, the out-
look for "Kuch" and his able assistant Duane Mellem
was glum, but after a few weeks of practice, things
began to look brighter.
Regular practice sessions began on September 1,
under the lights of the Civic Stadium, with about
60 boys turning out. During the second week of
practice, Kuch scheduled two workouts a day, one in
the morning and the other in the afternoon. This
continued until the week before the first game, with
The potent Pioneers from Oregon City were pre-
season favorites to win the No-Name League champ-
ionship, and before the game, dopesters put Eugene
as the decided underdog. The Axemen upset the
applecart, however, and when the smoke of the
battle had cleared, Eugene was victorious by a 14 to

under muddy, unfavorable conditions, Eugene took
the hurdle in stride, to the tune of 8 to U.
The 25 to U crushing of Salem will, no doubt,
be the longest remembered feature of the i944 season,
as this is the worst defeat Salem has been handed
foy a Eugene team in ils gridircn history.
ln the last game of the season, played at Albany,
each of the four senior backfield men scored a touch-
down, routing the Bulldogs 27 to U, and ringing down
the curtain on an outstandingly successful season.
The team's success was nicely summed up by
Kuchera at one of the four banquets given in honor of
the squad: "l believe we had the best football 'team
in the state this year, even though we were not picked
in the playoffs for the state title. lf Eugene teams
in the future will continue the high spirit and close
teamwork this year's squad inaugurated we will no
doubt have many more successful seasons."
Considered from all aspects there is little reason

versity High. The highlight of this game came in
the opening moments, when on Eugene's first play,
Darrell Robinson caught a long pass from Bill Hutch-
inson and scampered over for a touchdown. Eugene
had little trouble after that, emerging with a 20-U
The only setback of the season came in the third
game, which the gridders lost to North Bend 6-l9.
Following this, they quickly got back in the swing
of things by drubbing the highly touted Bend team
i3 to 6, and the Marshfield Pirates l3 to U.
The next two games proved to be the climax of
the seasonffthe outcome a deciding factor in the
championship of the No-Name League. The first of
these was with Corvallis, the team that boasted
Paul Lee, one of the best halfbacks in the state. Lead'
ing 6 to O, the Axemen made a victorious stand on
their own one-yard line and went on to Win i8 to O.
Milwaukie was the next victim of the axe. The
lviaroons, with l6 lettermen from their i943 champion-
ship team, loomed as the biggest threat in the Axe-
men's bid for top honors. Played at the Civic Stadium

The longest run of consecutive victories in the
state for l945 and the longest in the history of this
schcol was one of the big accomplishments of Eugene
High's basketball team this year. The Axemen under

and the Axemen went down in defeat for the first
time after a sensational thirty game win streak. The
potency of the Colonials was proven as they went on
to win the state championship, After this loss Eugene
hit its stride again, however, and won its next twc
Consolation games to capture 4th place.
The Axemen opened their strenuous schedule with
a win over Oakridge followed by a loss to Benson

For the second consecutive year, the Erie
gene High basketball B-Squads season was
highly successful. Under the expert and watch
ful eye of Coach Mellem, a rather ragged and
pingainlyeloolcing group of boys was turned
gnto a firstfrate basketball team. There being
very few lunior boys out for the sport, a large
part of the BfSguad was composed of Sopho-
rrofes, but although experience was lacking

as co-champion of the District 5 B-Squad
League. Beaten only three times during the sea-
scn, the sauad lost one game each to Salem,
Albany, and Springfield, losing to Albany
and Springfield by one-point margins. How-
ever, it is to be noted that each of these teams
was defeated by the Eugene squad at least
Although a successful season is importe
ant, it is of secondary importance with the

ence and master the fundamentals of basket-
ball, for they are the nucleus of the next years

Soph U fquad
ln order that the Sophomores
might compete in a loasketbali
league ot their own, a league
was tormed tor them in l943.
During l944-45 two Sopho-
more teams took part in this
newly-organized sports pro-
gram. The teams, the "Sopho-
mores" and the "Froshmores",
coached by Duane Mellem, won
tirst and second places in their
respective leagues and also
took part in a Basketball lam-
boree held at McArthur Court.
At this lamhoree both teams
played Well, making a fitting
ending to an already successful
season which gained much val-
uable experience and pleasure
tor those who participated.
"No Game Today---Rain." With the exceptions
R of the Weatherman the outlook for a prosperous
Baseball season Was in sight for this season. Lacking
experience but possessing a fine spirit of competi-
tion and cooperation, Eugene fielded a team of which
fans were duly proud.
Coach Duane Mellem rang out the initial call for
turnout on March l9, with a response from 45 can-
didates. The first week's practice was held in the
gym because of unsuitable weather, but better con-
ditions enabled Mel to schedule workouts on the
stadium diamond the following Week. Although the
entire infield was lost by graduation, enthusiastic
reserves from last year were rapidly progressing. Ex-
perienced prospects for the coming season were as
follows: Capt. Bill Fulps, utility 2nd baseman of '45
converted to first base: Harold Walker, Axeman's
Captain Bill Fulpg number one hurler, was expected to provide the pur-
ple and White with strong pitching: Dick Rodiger,
Walker's battery-male back from the '44 squad, Willis
McCullough, outfielder last seasonfmoved to sec-
ond base in an effort to rebuild the infield: Floyd
Green, outfielder, and Marvin Reynolds, third base-
man. Cther promising candidates included, Duane

Captain Robinson in action
At press time, the coming season was one of
uncertainty as three of the lettermen from last
year's team were on call for the Navy: Ronald
Ham, the leading point-maker of the previous
season, and sprinters Marion Denzer and Bill
Hutchinson. Certain to lead the Axemen this
year, however, was Captain Darrell Robinson, of
whom big things were expected on the cinders.
At its best, Eugene had a well-balanced team
which promised to garner its share of the meets,
though handicapped by the loss of several stars
through early graduation. Kuchera anticipated
a speedy relay team composed of four seniors:
Robinson, Denzer, Hutchinson, and Bodner. As
luniors, these four ran close to the best of teams
in the Hayward Relays, and pre-season indica-
tions were that they woud be high-ranking in
this year's events. lt was predicted that the
weakest cog in the AXemen's machine would be
the field events which proved fatal in l944. How-
ever, at the time this went to press, there was
a possibility that this deficit might be filled by
several up-and-coming sophomores, who show-
ed promise in early season tryouts.
Regardless of the season's results, Kucheroi
will -be able to use underclass talent developed
this year for the '46 and '47 teams.

Unfortunately, weather interfered with
the soccer season making it a shorter sea-
son than usual. junior and Senior teams
were organized and played a couple of
hard fought games.
A volleyball tournament was conduct-
ed after school and teams were selected
by grades. There were five teams in all,
two each of the juniors and Seniors and
one Sophomore. Practices were held twice
a week before the tournament started. The
juniors took the tournament from the Sen-
iors in a battle royal, while the Sophomores
fought hard to equal their larger oppon-
After many delays basketball got un-
der way about Christmas time with senior,
sophomore, and junior teams competing in
the tournament. The Seniors proceeded to
win back some of their dignity which they
had lost in the volleyball tournament when
Girls like to participate in sports as much as boys do and although
they do not play interschool games they enjoy interclass competition.
Sports are not only enjoyable avocations but are excellent teachers
of skill and accuracy, cooperation with people, and co-ordination be-
tween hand and head. ln addition, they help the girls to relax from
the strain of modern life.
All girls who are physically able are required to take two years
of physical education during their high school careers but there is
always a group of girls who enjoy sports so much that they play in
games after school, as extra curriculer activities. For this group there
is the opportunity offered by the G.A.A. of taking part in organized
competition with the incentive of letter earning to spur participation.
Group sports included soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball and
badminton. Individual sports were tennis, golf and bowling.
links around the countryside and the girls
with the time and ability have enjoyed the
sport greatly this year. A few girls were
given instructions and started on the path
to good golfing.
The season ended at school this year
with badminton and baseball. The form-
er was a rather limited sport since only
eight girls can play at a time and there
are always more girls than that who wish
to play. By taking different days we were
able to carry out a highly successful and
enjoyable season. Baseball suffered the
pangs of bad weather as did some of the
other outdoor sports. Despite this fact three
teams were organized among the girls and
they played some exciting! games at the
they were beaten by the luniors earlier in the sea-
Since Eugene High did not have any tennis courts
of its own, girls interested in this sport had to go to
the University of Oregon courts or to the Fairgrounds.
This always eliminated some girls who would have
been inlerested but never seem to stop those who
had really zest and did not mind hardships. The
weatherman smiled not to pleasantly on this sport,
but nevertheless some girls did give each other good
The tumbling team, although small, was an en-
thusiastic group which had lots of fun learning new
tricks and polishing up old ones. Though they gave
no public appearances as a group, they did perform
singly and in couples at different times.
Golf is another sport which forces its followers
to travel to enjoy it. There are several good golf
