Master Sergeants and Their Background
After years of hard work and a lot of fun and
accomplishment the class of '43 has finally been
promoted to Master Sergeants.
As privates the class entered Camp Pioneer in
the Fall of '39 with that grown-up feeling that
being in high school .gives you, but we soon found
that we were a little green. The class was soon
well organized and was running smoothly with
Hubert Najarian as presidentg ,Iohn Buckenmeyer.
vice presidentg Sue Pilliod, secretary, and Nancy
Tavtigian, treasurer. Miss Edgar, Miss Bechtolt
and Mr. Faber were our sponsors.
Being privates in Camp Pioneer we got all of
those first thrills of high school such as joining
clubs, going to pep meetings and assemblies, going
to camp parties and building a float for Corn Fes-
tival. The float was a green and white one of a
modern design. It brought out the classes, good
workmanship and won first prize.
One of the outstanding students in our Freshman
year was Sue Pilliod who was cheerleader.
As corporals we were well acquainted with Camp
Pioneer. Able to get organized and take a more
active part in the school life. This year John Buck-
enmeyer was elected president, Ronald Born, vict-
presidentg Alicia Severin, secretary, and Wanda
Mae Leist, treasurer. Miss Bechtolt and Mr. Kel-
logg were advisors.
Since the class was a little more "camp wise"
this year it was possible for the students to hold
offices and take a bigger part in school activities.
Une of the big events of this year was the Sopho-
more class play given at an assembly program.
The name of the play was "A Wedding" in which
Sue Pilliod and Bob Thacker had the leading roles.
During our Sophomore year we produced an-
other prize-winning float. The theme was "Peace
Synonymousn with Betty Jane Hassen and Cordon
Light representin 'LMiss Libertyv and 'Lllncle
Sam." They stoos in front of the American flag
and there was a golden eagle perched on the fore
part of the float.
One of the social events of this year was a Pri-
vate and Corporal party. The party revealed some
interesting things undiscovered heretofore, such as
dancing ability, personalities, dates, etc.
ln the Spring of '41 we were promoted to Ser-
geants, ready to take up work in the Fall. One of
the first duties in the Fall was election of officers.
Ellis Overmyer was elected presidentg Gerald Mill-
er, vice presidentg Kathryn Elton, secretary, and
Helen Parker, treasurer. This year the treasurer
really gets a work out with the class play, class
rings and Sgt.-M. Sgt. banquet coming up and the
The float had for a theme H0rchids to Swantonf'
It was covered with lavender paper and had gold
letters. Betty ,lane Hassen and Clavera Krcuz rode
on it holding a large orchid between them.
The class rings caused much excitement among
the sergeants. They were chosen early in the Fall
and we received them a little before Christmas.
uGrowing Painsi, was chosen as our class play.
It centered around the troubles and trials of a
group of adolescent young people. Sue Pilliod
and jack Sloan took the leads. Mr. Kellogg and
Miss Carpenter were our patient and capable di-
With the money received from the class play and
the candy sales, which took place in the halls at
noon and night and at the basketball games, we
entertained the M. Sgts. of ,42 at a banquet.
The banquet was based on a patriotic theme. It
was held at the Masonic Temple and then there was
a dance in the gym. The temple hall and gym were
both decorated in red, white and blue. The queen
for the banquet was chosen from the M. Sgts. class.
Louise Kauffman was crowned queen with white
Once more the class of '43 has been promoted,
this time to Master Sergeants. The officers this
year are: President, Mary Vaughang vice presi-
dent, Clen Jewelg secretary. ,lean Dernlang treasur-
er, Nancy Tavtigian. The sponsors are Mr. Daniels
and Miss Harris.
The float this year was rather modified due to
the war. The Seniors were represented in the Corn
Festival parade by a buggy painted red, white and
blue with a dummy of Hitler hanging by a rope
around his neck. There were several signs on it,
one being, '5Down With Hitler." Mildred Sell was
dressed to represent "Uncle Samv and drove the
The one important thing the Seniors strive to do
is to put out the biggest and best annual yet.
The graduation pictures caused excitement for
all of the M. Sgts. They were received in time to
be used as Christmas gifts. We have picked out
our class flower. motto. color and invitations up-
to-date. Now we are looking forward to the class
play. commencement, baccalaureate. and the Sgt.-
M. Sgt. banquet.

Our oflicers were Harold Bloom. president: James

and Evelyn Michael. treasurer. with Miss Hahn
and Mr. Baker helping us out. We were really
noticed when we carried away the honors on Corn

Sophomores had a "Hopf, The two-step and

depicting the Statue of Liberty and the four
branches of service. Looking ahead to the annual
Junior and Senior Banquet we sponsored the Hal-
luwe'en party. Candy sales were also started. Next
came the junior play in the form of "Mama,s Baby
Boy." Here we will remember Janice Overmyer
and Ed. Lamb as the "kids," Betty Lou Spaulding
and Harold Bloom as 'gmamaw and 'Ldaddyf' and
the joke of the show. Ellen Adams. as Minnie. By
the first of December we could really strut for we
were wearing our class rings. Don't you envy us.
P. E. C.? Our biggest event is yet to come. the
Junior-Senior Banquet. Though present day con-
diticns bring changes. our aim is to have a better
banquet than ever. The girls, skirts may not be so
wide. the boys may not have cuffs on their white
llannels. the orchestra may be all girls. but count
on us not to let the Master Sergeants down.
By this year our class is well represented in all

History of The Corporals
This is the second year that the Corporals of 'fl-2
and '43 have spent on the top floor of Camp Pio-
neer. In these two years their time was earnestly
spent in preparing their lessons.
As Buck Privates we had the privilege of having
one of the best instructors in our career. Major
Bradshaw. We were especially prepared in Eng-
lish and other practical subjects at this time. Our
float that year was huilt in collahoration with the
other Buck Privates as was the usual custom. The
float was designed into a replica of old part of
Camp Pioneer. It was that year we had bestowed
on us first prize. lt was during this year that the
operetta 'gScro0ge's Christmasn was presented.
ln the latter part of our Private training our
teacher was Major Berkebile. During that year we
held our first election of officers. The results were
thus: Jack Ballmer. presidentg Edward Suther-
land, vice presidentg Donna Bloom. secretaryg Bon-
nie Ashenfelter, treasurer. In the scholastic test
Mary Stukey took first place with Jack Ballmer
placing second. For our float that year we chose
an artistic design of a large waving American flag.

records athletically as well as scholastically. As
our greenness wore off we took into view all the
possibilities of education. Our elections for that
year were as follows: Kenneth Born, president,
Donald Eicher, vice president, Edward Sutherland.
secretaryg Terrance Hallett, treasurer. Jack Ball-
mer was appointed to the Defense Committee. Miss
Edgar and Mr. Vaughan were the sponsors of our
class. There were quite a few high scores in the
climination test. Two from our class, Dale Paul
lohn Shearer received football letters. A giant
' for Victory mounted on a boat with the slogan
'Sailing to Victory" was the theme of our float
Coming to school as Corporals was quite differ-
ent from the previous years. For officers we kept
the same executive department as in the past year
and as Keeper of the Records, ,lack Ballmer was
minted and Bruce Sharples as Keeper of the
Funds. Miss Joslin and Mr. Vaughan sponsored
our class this year. It was in this year that we had
our first class play, 6'Youth and Uncle Sam." It

About the Privates First Class . . .
On September eighth. l942, there were about 93
bewildered students moving about the halls of
Camp Pioneer. They were deeply impressed by
the surroundings and with the situation confront-
At 9 o'clock they went to the large assembly.
Each felt that everyone was looking at them. know-
ing that there would be many blunders made that
first week. After a brief talk by Gen. Rogge they
were instructed to go to their first class appearing
on their schedule. There was much embarrassment
to go through the first week trying to locate the

and Joanne Beard.

their upperclassmen. When these students were
buck privates they felt like quite advanced pupils
and did make a good showing in their state tests.
They elected as their class officers, Privates First
Class Robert Adams, president, George Tavtigan,
vice president, Joanne Beard, treasurer, and Marie
Stickradt, secretary. The class advisors were
Majors Curtis, Palmer and Eaton.
For Corn Festival they built a very patriotic
float out of old newspapers and gave what money
they would have spent for crepe paper to the USU.
Our float depicted everyone involved in this war.

Corn Festival will long be remembered as it rained
when the parade was assembling and many floats
were damaged. The Privates First Class attended
their first big party at l'lallowe'en and enjoyed it
Laurels are given to the Barnes Twins and Keith
Clay for their ability in playing football and to
Hazel Pike for being on the Hi-Life Staff. These

obtained, they will be prepared to meet almost any
situation that might confront them.

Band Activities l. ,. Q
The band at Camp Pioneer is composed of
sixty officers and enlisted men conducted by
Major Forest R. Etling.
The Camp Pioneer band has several functions
"We want to play well, to march well, to en-
joy playing good music, and to cooperate with
others in a worthwhile endeavor."
In the fall, the marching band presented
many interesting and novel maneuvers for the
crowds that attend our football games. The em-
phasis this year was placed on formation, rep-
resenting our armed services and our effort for
victory. To mention a few of these, there was
the "V" for victory, the airplane, the anchor,
the bell, the ship, "U. S." and the "A" for
America and the "Hi Neighbor" formations.
The band is well known for the precision with
which they excercise their maneuvers.
The band also contributes much to the camp
by their playing and marching for the Flag
Dedication Services, War Bond Parade, Corn
Festival Parade and the Memorial Day Service.
The Spring Concert, presented by the mem-
bers of the Concert Band and under the direc-
tion of Major Etling, was a brilliant success.
Musically and in appearance. the group
proved themselves excellent "soldiers" The
program emphasized music of a United Ameri-
ca at war. Highlighting the program was the
Rhapsody "Deep South" by Isaac-Lillya, which
contained melodies of the South and the selec-
tion "Covatina" by Raff, which was a huge ova-
tion for the musiclike phrasing of its beautiful
melody. Special comment should be made of
the "Chorale" by Bach, which displayed the
fine blending possibilities of the band. "Southern
Melodiesw by Yoder also featured melodies of
the South. The marches were "Noble Men" by
Fillmore, a new victory march entitled "Three
Short, One Long" by Monson, and the program
was concluded with the brilliant march, 'The
Stars and Stripes Forever" by Sousa. The Sat-
isfaction gained by the members of the band in
presenting this fine program to other mcmbers
of the Camp repaid them many times for the
many hours of rehearsals.
Each year, Master Sergeants of the Concert
Band are presented awards for outstanding
achievement in music. The band has its own
achievemen program. The solos are First Class
Musicans, Second Class Musicans, Third Class
Musicans and Fourth Class Musicans. To ob-
tain these awards the members must faithfully
attend rehearsals, be punctual, and play well
upon their instruments. The Master Sergeants
that received awards this year are, Master Ser-
geants Jack Sloan, Wanda Mae Leist, Lewis
Taylor, Alicia Severin, Helen Parker, Jean
Dernlan, James Judson and James Geahlen.
The awards were beautiful gold pins.
In addition to executing marching maneuvers
with precision and playing a concert program.
the members are all "swell soldiers."
The Band officers for this year are: presi-
dent, Master Sergeant Wanda Mae Leistg vice
president, Master Sergeant Alicia Severin: li-
brarian, Corporal John Batdorfg assistant, Cor-
poral Edward Sutherlandg equipment manager,
Sergeant Joseph Parker, and assistant, Cor-
poral Kenneth Born.
