'l'his friendly, companionable, and democratic spirit seenis eliarac- teristic ol' our high school as an intangible something which seeins lacking in many schools, olflen larger and better equipped. X'Ve will not try to define this school spirit. A matter of tradition, it is now so real, now so niueh a part of North Union, that it has been ehosen to keynote this year's Torch. The best expression we can find for this "fellow feeling" is the word cama- raderie. 0 -4- , MWWW , A afZ'fVafz,Zfz Zfnian --5.- e f A.,,: E ii , nI:':i:,: t , we as it N fi 2 4 A if ., gf L :HE Y , L5 , ..1,. :.,.

Means The influence of the school has long been regarded one of the important factors determining the place which youth will take as citizens in our democracy. Mindful of this, the citizens of North Union Township have elected from its number seven gentlemen whom they feel are best qualified to direct the education of their children in these all important years of their lives. The seven gentlemen who have so willing donated their time and service are: George Gummerson t, President XVilliam Donavan ,,,, Secretary Joseph Paull . , .... ........,,. ....,, . .t....,,,.,,.. . ,.,, ' I 'reasurer Robert N. Matthews Clarence Patterson C. XV. Frankhouser Martin Marcus Mr. Frankhouser has been elected to fill the vacancy caused by Mr. YVilliam Pat- terson joining the U. Navy during the summer of l944. Mr. Marcus is ably serving for Mr. john Duranko, who is in the U. S. Army. These gentlemen are from various stations in life, which enables each of them to share with the others the benefits of their collective experiences. Tempered with these experiences are the liberal progressive views of education The completeness of their progressiveness is exemplified in the expansion of the curri- culum to include timely courses which will aid the students in finding their niche in the business, industrial or professional post-war American. An even broader program is anticipated for next fall. YVe the students of North Union are happy to have this opportunity to con- gratulate and gratefully thank this fine organization whose untiring efforts and unself- ish thoughts have ever been centered on us.

Each ol' us carries his own little impression ol' coming to high school. Yale were thelittle innocent lreshmen who were looked down upon by the upper classmen. As Sophomores, we became more adjusted to the surroundings ol the school. Now we had our chance of laughing at the "Freshies." An important event of the year was the choosing and receiving ol our class rings. As juniors we entered the rank of upperclassmen and helped share the fun ol' our Junior-Senior Party. In the fall of 1944, we came hack to school as Seniors tzaiiiig the most im- portant year of our high school life. At the beginning of the year, we selected our class ollicers: Ralston Dennis, presidentg Stanley Konicki, vice-presidentg and james Wlilley, secretary-treasurer. Throughout the year we have had many enjoyable events. Under the splen- did supervision ol Mr. Dumbauld, our various activities were successful. Our class, characterized as a happy one with individual initiative and group cooperation, has many pleasant school-day memories. Mfe hope the class reunion, "dreamed up" in the class prophecy, material- izes before 1965. -15- BESSI E, ADENHART "Bess" Ambition: Housewife Favorite Pastime: Telling iokes Believes in a good laugh . . . gets along with everyone , . . a person worth knowing . . . attends school occasionally.

Coach Stephen Furin and his assistant Harry X'Vilson took on the task of building a winning eleven out of a group of inexperienced, but willing boys. Coach Furin spent many long, tedious hours putting the team through the gruel- ling tasks of getting them in shape for the tough schedule ahead of them. Coaches Furin and Wilson put their best knowledge into blocking, tackling, and signaling practice. The coach sent his first eleven into their initial encounter with all con- fidence that they would come out on top, which they did. As you add every- thing up, you've got to give Coaches Furin and VVilson a hand, they had what it took to build a winning team. The Rams started their season off by defeating Scottdale 6-0, in a game that was tightly played until Zimmovan. North Union fullback, broke through for a 35-yard run to score and cinched the game. After this brilliant start, North Union played their most bitter, but most friendly rivals, South Union's Blue Devils. After battling to a scoreless deadlock in the first half, the third quarter found N. U. driving over the goal line for a well-deserved and game-winning touchdown. The next fray found N. U. visiting Dunbar Mules. This game was played in ankle-deep mud with rain coming down constantly. The Rams clicked well in this game, but failed to net a score, and had to be satisfied with a scoreless tie. The next week the Rams played hosts to the Perryopolis Commodores whom they defeated to the tune of I9-0. The scoring was done by our fleet- footed halfback, Konicki, and Zinnnovan, our hard-hitting, hard-tackling full- back. The Rams in their game with Uniontown were defeated I9-7 by a heavier and larger eleven. The Rams played brilliant football that night and gave the Uniontown lads the scare of their lives when N. L. led 7-0 at the half. Because of a very muddy field and injuries the Rams were defeated, but they went down fighting. 1411 N. U. played host to Georges in their following encounter, defeating them 13-0. The Georges eleven held the Rams for three quarters, till they opened up their power with Zimmovan, Cindric, and Konicki running wild in the last quar- ter to bring the Rams in scoring position, when Zinnnovan went over the last stripe untouched. ln the next encounter the Rams played host to Garniichaels. In this game there was more excitement than any game N. U. played during the season. Both teams displayed exceptional power and speed, and exhibited fine sportsmanship -but the game ended in a 1,3-13 deadlock. In the last encounter of the season North Union played South Union Blue Devils and were defeated 13-0 in a game where the Rams were harassed with the old jinx of injuries which weakened the front wall. So, from the results produced from our Rams this season, we are very well satisfied with their unrelentless work and practice. YVe bid them farewell till next season which we hope will be as successful as the one we have enjoyed. Broderick-Left End-Crashing defensive end. Bryzak-Left Tackle-Brilliant offensive blocker.

These familiar words were the "green light" signal for the student body lrom our live peppy cheerleaders as they led us through a great season ol' football and basketball. Always on the line, rain. snow, or shine, these energetic girls really coaxed the noise from the crowds and kept our school spirit at a high pitch with their snappy yells. This small, spirited, select group leading the boys and girls on the bleachers really backed up the team with their enthusiasm. Giving credit where credit, is due, a great deal comes the cheerleaders' way, lor they attended every game and brought with them their peppv elieers. 'lust a word or two about their lriendly spirit with cheerleaders ol' other schoolsfalways a smile and a few pleasant. words with their opponents make them "tops" where school spirit is concerned.

The patrol, chosen each year, is under the supervision ol' the principal, Mr. Means. Each year juniors are taken into tl1e ranks ol' the senior patrol. Each boy is chosen lor grades, honesty, dependability, proniptness, and his character in general. The duties of the patrol consist ol directing hall trallic between classes, assisting teachers, and arranging bus schedules.

Burnworth, this club has ventured lar into the art ol' drantatics. The plays presented by this group lilled many hours with pleasant entertainment. Funds brought in by the club went toward buying a stage setting, which has aided in giving a hetter hack- grouncl for the plays. .Xlyin Pierre was always on hand to see that the stage setting was in the right place at the right tinie. All in all, this chili. in just one year ol' their work. has proved a prolitahle lactor in educational work as well as entertainment.

Efficient, as well as good looking -60, fl My, but wasnlt that at wonderful 'sermon Reverend Umble gave this morn- ing-and his wife, the former Elora Lowery,-didn't she look proud? She always said she wanted to be a minister's wife. Yesterday morning, my mailman, Bill Harmon, in his usual business like manner, handed me a letter from Mr. and Mrs. james NVilley. QMarguerite Grubbsj. You know, -james was the secretary of the l945 class. It was an invita- tion asking me to ,attend a reunion of our class chums, two weeks from tomorrow. just think here it is, june I5, 1965! My how time flies. Sunday afternoons are so dreary. Seems I just can't keep my eyes open long enough to make plains for the reunion. Let me see, there will be-Ho-Hum-,thc sandman has me for sure. I'll just doze off a while .... W7hy, it's too bad Kathleen Reed wasn't able to attend today. I never dreamed she would make our state representative with the F. B. I. There is to be a floor show staged this afternoon in the auditorium under the direction of Mrs. Clifford Broderick, fnee Elaine Bottij and her assistant, jackie Hager, who has been with her ever since the organizing of Elcliff's Dra- matic School. Dorothy Dodrill was a fine pupil at Elcliff's but you know how it is-love got the best of her and now she is Mrs. james Yarris and there's jimmy -Ir. over there with Mrs. VVilliam Breakiron's Q-jane Bodkinj son. My, he just looks like his father. Bill has been so successful in the junk business. QBreak- iron, get it?j Now there goes a very happy couple-Mr. and Mrs. Earl Crayton. QRose Marie Stanlawj and talk about their children, well they can easily have a first string for a football squad. The Alumnus of Ole N. U. still have the urge in their feet to dance. Take, Gladys Davis, for instance, she's out there teaching our younger generation to jitterbug in the 1965 style, to the solid music of XVallace Davis and his Swing- eroos. Wally has really gone places lately. He plays once a year at the V-8 Inn. You've guessed it-the proprietor of the Inne-Bob Ford. A night never passes that you don't see james Guy and George Golcher looking for their English assignments left there back in 1945. They are still looking for an English grade, too. just before the dance this evening it is rumored that the women will re- ceive a rose, the men, a carnation, a good will offering from the Gadd and Beck Florist Shop. Wfith -jane and Ruth's influence I knew they would own the shop on Morgantown Street without much trouble. The flowers come from thc greenhouse operated by Madeline Grego. Remember how short she used to be? YVell, she has reached the height of 5' S". Can you imagine that? A former as- sociate of -jane and Ruth's Shop, Peggy Evans, is now affiliated with Laurel Provance, Bostou's accomplished Lovelorn advisor. Now can anyone imagine them giving advice, when they needed it so badly themselves not too many years ago? I received a letter from them last. week and they want me to explain to everyone why their presence would be impossible. It seems they had "run into somethingn. That something was Charles Miller, Chief of Police there in Boston. VVhen you run into Charley there's no getting away, especially when it's two females. It required two assistants to convince the two ladies who they have encountered. The chief's assistants are Cloyd Fike and Dick Eddie. Mrs. Fike really doesn't see much of her husband in this type of business. Remember Rhea Bittle? She's the Mrs. ..-611 Mle are to have an added attraction for this evening's entertainment. Movie Producer John Pensock, is here from Hollywood, Penna., with his huge cast of four great stars. Imagine four of them! Lenora Augustine who is just dying to play a loveescene with Delbert Livingoodg Lucille Rochester, a Sky-Lark soprano, borrowed from "The Two Bits a Year Opera Company", Mary Alice Phillips who does a bit of everything including singing and dancing-all that from a four foot, eleven inches, and last but not least, Mary Louise Travis and her violin. This fall Mary Louise will organize an All Girl Symphony Orchestra. Mike Mayros, president of Mike's Factory told me the Marx Brothers were going to be here, and I laughed at him, because I never dreamed of their "stand- insu being here. Those boys certainly did rise to fame. One would never guess as to whom they are-Ambrose Lopick, Tony Carolla and Eddie Mardula. Re- member them? ' Bernard .Iakobowski claims he is employed at Mike's Factory but he says he is his best machinist. That, I want verified. I donft think he could compare with lileanor Martin, Betty Lou Scott, and Bertha Novak. just think, they have had twenty years experience plus two credits as a graduation gift, but well worked for. There's General and Mrs, Edward l'Vashco tDot Saltrickj. Eddie reached as far as in the Army, but he is the top-general in that household. Dorothy's lovely dress came from Alice George's Dress Shop. Her two head clerks are Theresa Delligatti and Irene Hucik. They can really give a sales talk. Not one person leaves the shop without some kind of a purchase. That's salesmanship! Margie Crawford may arrive late this afternoon if she is able to get some- one to bring her. You see. she never married. That is so hard to believe, but she always said she would be an old maid in spite of the fact that she had a date every evening. She lives out in the country next to "Smiles" Collin's farm. He is really a farmer. He was elected to bring the food for the reunion. Charles Burgess is in the transfer business, so he is going to use two of his largest trucks to bring the Collins Farm here. Coach Davison, Bee J certainl is gettin ' a lot of attention over there. He . . . h .L , . . , is just like he was years ago-small, but mighty. Hes giving Carmen Gregos son a few pointers on boxing. Carmen is busy making a success of himself in the Armv. Mfell, can you beat that! The man shortage is still on. There is Carolyn McClain-conductor on the Greensburg line. livery once in a while she ducks in at Martin's Drug Store. Man shortage there too. -Ioan still works at the fountain. Ruth Martin never was bored at N. U. For the past fifteen years she has been teaching First Aid to the Music teacher, Gerald Fee. A very wise idea. Agree? Carl Fasulky really has his hands full-of shoes. Margie Griffin, owner of Griffin's Shoe Polish Co. l1as hired Carl to give every class member a free shine. By tl1e time Carl is finished he will need a good polishing himself. Did you ever see Thelma McKittrick without a neat hair-do? I hear she goes to Mil-Mil's Beauty Parlor every week. The co-owners are Mildred Blaxek and Mildred Eutsey. I had a phone call last week from Iiouise Leptinsky. She and her friend, Millis Early, are nurses at Scott Field. Their boss, james Scott has given them a few days leave, and jimmy and his wife, Bessie Adenhart will accompany them there. I hope Stanley Konicki and his wife fHoney Lou Robinsonj make it early this evening. Stanley and Honey said they would greet the members at the dance .-6 2... this evening in the absence of President Ralston Dennis. I went past Ral's home last week and heard Junior being landed on for whistling at the girls. Neighbors say the feud is still going on. Takes after you Ral-let him be. My gosh, who is this running down the road? It's Clayton Smith, America's Qgndzgflagg, the second. He runs just likeheatsed toawlren he JA.LOl1lLl.1C21V!g Bus No. 2 at Fairground and beat it for home. I wonder if Romeo of IQ45 is here as yet? Yes, Alvin Pierce climbed the ladder to 'Iuliet's balcony and has managed to be married thrice, divorced thrice. The Dramatics Club IIIUSI have influenced hin1 and people say he is looking for No. fl-. Speaking of influence, who would have dreamed that David Mason would have become Governor of Pennsylvania. He and Senators John Phillips and Frank XVilliams are to meet for an important conference next week. I remember how brilliant they were back in high school. One of their headliners in the conference will determine whether Phyllis Hanna will continue to be the owner of "The Pop'em-Crack'em Chewing Gum Factory". Ann Durochik and Eleanor Duttko are in the offices of this renowned firm. lt seems that the noise made from the process of producing this gum has disturbed the class of Professor Willmur Sheranko. It seems he is having a nasty time trying to teach the children of Margaret Glass and XVilda Herbert the necessary rules in Math, while they are wondering how to snitch a stick or two without Judge YVilliam Renner finding it out. YVhy, just the other day he fined Emily Polito 3310.00 because her dog fought with Madelyn Ridley's cat. Bill's attractive secretary is Victoria Kapel. Oh yes, her high school chum, Dorothy Gurick, a member of the XVMBS staff, told over the radio yesterday evening that Martha Skovira, Florence Gulino, and Emilia Harenza are now the owners of the "Central Amusement Park." It is situated at Oliver, Pa. Two more successful people in the radio business are Ed Sikina and -Ioe Poremba who are the famous tobacco auctioneers heard on the "Roll Your Own program with Mary Elizabeth Novak, announcer and Veronica Pluto as her manager. The class of 1945 certainly represent themselves well in the field of science and medicine. Take Lt. Martha Malinzak of the Army Nurse Corps. She is now at the John Hopkins Hospital. She is Dr. Rudy Concheck's assistant. They are trying to find a cure for spring fever. And then, we have Dr. Aileen Furin, famous inventor, who invented a cure for the common cold. She is now trying to invent a rocket that goes to the moon, an invention which has been unsuc- cessful to this time. John Rebovitch has offered his service to test the speedy- demon. Opal Smearman will also help Dr. Furin to the fullest extent. William fTwo-Gunj Kavaka is now starring in a western film called "Two-Gun Rides Again." Q sure Academy Award VVinner.Q He, too, is in need of something. He is pleading Dr. Furin to discover some means of shooting a gun IlOt aimed, but still hit the bull's eye. Everyone will certainly be glad to welcome back Helen Lubich, Jessie Love, Yolande Miner, Marion McNutt, Helen Patchan, and Evelyn Landman, after a tour of foreign countries for the past ten years. These girls were certainly eager to receive a further education. The ship they arrived on was the U. S. Uniontown. They were interviewed by Edith Strawser and Pearl Volesko who are employed with the New York Times. Photographer Magdaline Shuster was on the spot to take pictures of them. joe Minnick, captain of the ship, stated that the next trip would be South America to pick up Frances Pisarik, Phyllis Burgess, Marianne Trimbath, and Elizabeth Kremposky, who went there on an expedition to find gold. By reports we find they were unsuccessful. South America is really wonderful, but they are homesick, so much that they would do anything to see Leonora Durso and her assistant Mildred Dempf designing .-631 costumes for the chorus girls in the Ziegfield Follies. Some of the Follies girls are Esther Dancer, Betty Burke, Ann Barcovic and Ethel Gregor. Next door to the Follies is a handy place. Mary "Mamie" Midlick is hair stylist for the actresses of the Starway Motion Picture Company, Mamie manages to "slip in" a couple of her friends for a new hair-do between curtains. Her friend, Elsie Visinaire is a dress designer for the same company. Dorcas Hann and Anna Cutler got a superb idea. After the reunion, any member who is worn out from shaking hands, talking too much, and eating beyond comfort, are cordially invited to visit their summer resort along the Atlantic Coast. Being very wise, Catherine Conchilla and Betty Grimm, rested at the resort before coming here. You see, they have just returned from a cruise on the yacht owned by Orville Matthews. It seems to me that after two big excursions anyone would be ready for the wagon. A sight for sore eyes- here is a wagon. There's jean Barnes driving up in her "wagon", She is taking up where her grandfather left off-undertaking business. I guess she's going to stick around in case anything does happen. VVC have so many memories of our four years at school but I believe IQ44-45 will be the most to remember. Then our boys left for the service. Some 20 years have passed but Admiral Leonard Cherison's speech at tl1e dinner tonight will give in detail how he and some of his crew sank 8 japanese ships one right after another. Frank Prah and David Stickle also took part in this great battle of YVorld IVar II. joe Midlick is going to fly Admiral Cherison here today. Joe is a Commercial pilot, who is usually stationed at an airport called "Sky." Once, while zooming through the air, a little engine trouble caused him to drop a 'ffew feet," clipping over a forest and peering down, he spied junior Ledgerton, a game hunter, who was looking for Charles Tradup, who is to put on an exhi- bition in a pool at the hotel near the forest. It seems that he got lost and junior was hired the posse. Everytime N. U.'s Wlave, Ruth Klein received a leave she goes to the Inn where Marthel Barney is bellboy. Marthel says june Edmun- son sings nightly at a neighboring club with Cab Calloway and his orchestra. She made the N. U. Blues famous. Melvin Stockton is the head of a city hospital in California. Another grad- uate to add his name to the list of the Medical profession. Claudine Hileman is here at the institution day in and day out. She's our Algebra teacher. She often sees Dorothy Shultz up near the school. She is hap- pily married to a former football player. Their daughter is just the image of Dorothy. A profession not very often successful, Esther Hayes, has become one of the world's greatest painters. She just finished painting a portrait of Martha Verbus. I would have thought Emery Stefanko, America's No. l baseball player, would bring a few celebrities to the reunion. Believe it or not, Emery made his first hit in the league's last game. A regular attender of his games, Nell McMillcn, now married some fifteen years or more, really gets a kick seeing him swing his bat with no results. The baseball field is next to the library and Dorothy On- drish, Librarian, has put in several claims for broken windows. Eleanor Zehel is the owner of the Union Supply Store which she had moved from Lemont. It is more convenient being near her home. My, what a snazzy looking limosine and who's driving? Vlhy, it's Tony Sadosky. He is chauffeur for business-man john Strickler. john is still out with his receipt book looking for those who failed to pay the balance on their yearbooks .... Oh, myl That was some dream I had. It all seemed so real. I wonder what the Class of 1945 will really be like in 1965.
