Being a little shy at first, but soon catching on to the new rou tine, twenty nine first graders were greeted by our fine teacher, Miss Mar tin My, wasn't that a bunch! Only seven of the twenty nine beginning stu dents, however, have remained throughout the entire twelve years They are Erma Lou Bozell, Richard Bumgarner, Eldon Clark, Florian Flum, MarceD1e Kep linger, Robert Kumfer, and Marilyn Pence After Christmas, the Gayot twins Mildred and Marcella, blew in from Rookcreek, making things much more cummi cated for our class As we began our second year, a new face appears Why she has two black pigtails, tied with red ribbons! Yes, it was Mary Lu Burger, from New Bhven Phonics was stressed by Miss Martin that year to impress upon our minds the correct pronunciation of words Maxine Carl, a little blue eyed blonde from Ossian, began her first round at Union soon afterChristmas, too horseshoe seemed to be our delight, and Miss Thomas Know Mrs Fetterhoff found it easy to keep her pupils entertained during recess Girls seemed to be gaining the stronghold by out numbering the boys as two more lassies arrived from laynedele Norma Fisher and Wilodene Dennis joined us the lat ter part of the year Before we realized it, we had been promoted to the fourth grade a different room and a new teacher, Miss Eulala Martin Know Mrs Mclean! Autograph books seemed to be popular that year, so we were kept busy think ing up new verses Upon entering our room the following year, we hear a definitely masculine voice, and find that for the first time in our school life we are confronted with a man for our teacher, namely, Mr Corll Maxine Carl, seeming a little restless this year, decided to continue her education in Markle Say, what was that streak of red which iusf flashed past me? Oh, it's a new boy, is it? Sure enough, a red headed boy appeared on the scene from Fort Wayne His enrollment card gives his name as Clarence Smith, but he's just plain 'Red' to most of us This was our sixth big year, with Mr Corll still our competent guide Mr Wall decides to try his hand with our class the following year, so we journey across the hall to the only remaining room downstairs for our seventh grade This year, Joan Sickafus Joins us from Election Grade School in Adams County, and, 'Well, look over there, isn't tmn:Ma:1ne Carl againt' This time she plans to stay at Union and complete her high school work with her former classmates A l O 7 9 Oh! There goes the bell--run and get the horseshoes out! Playing , - And then we love to that mysterious realm--yes, upstairs we go! This makes our second year in Junior high, with Mr. Fedzrhoff as our teach- er. Huch time and effort is spent this year preparatory for the great day when we should enter high school as freshmen. After leaving the eighth grade we enter high school, a complete new world with seniors blaming the green freshmen for everything that went wrong For class officers we elected James Haffner as president, Clarence Smith, vice president, Gaylord Jackson, treasurer, and Mary Lu Burger, sec retary Mrs Haffner was our class sponsor After surviving the freshmen year, we pass on to the sophomore year feeling quite superior to the little freshmen By the way, a new face appeared in our class thls year, Herbert Best, from Roanoke The girls, with two years of home economics,Ielt they could cookv ll enough to invite their mothers for a luncheon Incidentally, everything turned out as good ascxmld be expected Our class officers for this year were president, Joan Sicka fus, vice president, Norma Fisher, secretary, Richard Bumgarner, treasurer, Marilyn Pence, our sponsor for this year and the following two years was Miss Rutenberg Entering our junior year, we felt more grown up and climbing closer to our goal Several important events happened this year, first, our play, 'Free Advice,' was given ln October Second,ourclass rings and pins arrived in October to give us something to show off Third, Don Parson joined us the second semester from Wauseon, Ohio Fourth, the junior senior reception was Mid at the bottom of Davey Jones' Locker, QYMCA aquarium! in Fort Wayne Our class officers for this year were president, Marilyn Pence, vice presi dent, Marceille Keplinger, treasurer, Norma Fisher, and secretary, Maxine Carl Now for the history of our last and most important year First, Kenny Herndon, from Jefferson Township decided he wanted to finish b1S edu cation at Union Center Second, we ordered our name cards and lnvitations Third, we presented the play, 'There Goes the Bride ' Fourth, we had our pictures taken by the Cron Leone Studios, who promised fascinating results, and fifth, we were measured for our caps and gowns, which made us realize that our history at Union Center was drawing near its climax A this is golng to press, plans are be1ng made for a 1UH1OT senior, two day trip to Chicago Some of the attractions to be seen will be Navy pier, Lincoln Park Zoo, Drive through the Northwestern and Lovola Unlverslties, Wrigley Field, Merchandise Market Cone of the largest bulldlngs 1n the worldl, Hull House,F1eld Museum, Aquar1um,Imanetarium, soldier Field, Chuge amphltheatre seating 100,000J, The Loop, and Marshall F1eld's store We will stev at the Harrison Hotel off Michigan Boulevard on Harr1son street .Emo arrangements arekming made to see aradhrbroadcast, we are hoplng it will be 'Tre Break fast Club W Both the juniors and seniors are looking forward to this trip This year and the following years a formal banquetwillbe held one vear and 8 trip the next year Our Baccalaureate services w1ll be meld on April 27, and Commencement on May 2 It is with deep regret that we see our high school dave coming to a close and suddenly we realize that we must leave good old U C H S to the future classes, me sincerelv hope that they will enjoy it, and acquire as much knowledge from it as we have C Q ' ' 3 Q .
