SENIURS To the Class of 1931 lt is my belief that every student Should get all the scholarship he can, get all the culture he eang get all the wisdom he Can, but above all things, he should strive to build nobility of Character. lVIanhood is better than knowledgeg integrity is better than wisdom, reetitude is better than Culture: goodness is better than greatness, and "the soul outranks the intellect as the sun outranks the stars." Thus nobility of eharaeter overtops all titles, Caps all careers, crowns all virtues, for it is the quality that gives weight and worth and moral dignity to the soul. Affectionately yours, JOHN C. JENKINS. 13 Emi' "' M ARTHA LOCKWOOD Pri-sirh-nt 45 Vim--I'rc-sirln-lil lg Ath- h-tic' .Xssuciatiun 1, J, .ig Gln-v Club 2, .lg Oni-rvlta 1, .lg R-Y J, 43 R-Y Prcsizls-nt 45 Chairman llamlum-t Cmnnlillvf- .ig Class Play 4.

No one has ever seen YVillie in a serious mood. He enjoys collecting Indian pennies and V Nickles, too. Un Tuesday, September second, good old Union City High opened the doors to her students. Among that number there were fortv-three who walked with a sprightly air and uplifted heads. Ah, you've guessed it! We were the Seniors. For a few daysiwe signed all our papers with the word "Senior" merely to get the thrill of writing it! After awhile how- ever, the noveltv wore off and we settled down to some good hard work. We found several new members of the faculty awaiting us. In the gym we found Miss Durbin and Mr. Bogue playing with the basketball-in fact, to tell the truth, they were throwing the hall at the ceiling to watch the plaster tumble down! We found Miss Fuller in the English de- partment talking to the Freshies. And then, as we descended the stairs again, a very pugnent odor came to our nostrils. Following it. we found Mr. Porter, playing with and breaking test tubes-and on our very heels came Professor jenkins who asked him to please shut the door and open all the windows! And, of course, we found some of the old members of the faculty there also, and we welcomed them all alike. I We had to have a president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer to guide us through the year, and so we elect- ed Martha Lockwood, Worthe Smith, Edna Sexton, and Esther King, to Fill those ofhces. We also elected our Anvil B d oar which was to be ably guided and directed by Harold Siverling. We are still looking forward to many happy times in our Senior year, such as the junior-Senior Banquet and the Senior Prom. And now we're leaving you good old Union High. May the other classes be as proud of you as we were! - 4- Y 'Jr We--Y.-1-.' E 1 ' 3. 21 - aaiiifi L if I THE CLASS WILL Ladies and Gentlemen, Board of Education, Superintendent, Teachers and Friends:- Ilpon behalf of my client, the Class of 1931 of Union City High School, of the City of Union City, State of Pennsylvania, II. S. A., I have called you together upon this solemn and serious occasion, to listen to her last will and testament, and to receive from her dying hand the few gifts she has to bestow in her last moments. Cutting so rapidly loose from life, and finding so many things of such gigantic proportions to be attended to before the end should come upon her, realizing at the same time that she had no longer any time left to spend in cultivation of her own virtues, she did, collectively and individually, deem it best to distribute these virtues with her own hands to those friends to whose needs they seem best fitted. As a result of this announcement a wild scene took place amidst most frantic pleading and scrambling among her friends for this or that so long coveted glory: but she has tried to be just, as well as generous and impartial and distribute wisely unto those who will make the best use of such gifts as she has in her power to bestow, the talents that have served her so faithfully these four years. These are her decisions, as at last definitely arrived at through very deliberate consideration. Owing to the Highty condition of her brain, and the unusual disturbance in its gray matter, she begs me to state for her that she may quite possibly have been mistaken in her inventory: but such things as she thinks she has, she hereby gives into your possession, praying that you will accept them as a sacred trust from one who has gone before. Listen, then, one and all, while I read the document, as duly drawn up and sworn to: We, the Class of 1931, being about to pass out of this sphere of education, in full possession of a crammed mind, well-trained memory, and almost superhuman understanding, do make and publish this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all former wills or promises by us at any time heretofore made, or perhaps, carelessly spoken, one to the other, as the thoughtless wish of an idle hour. And First we do direct that our funeral services shall be conducted by our friends and well-wishers, our Superintendent and his Faculty, who have been our guardians for so long, only asking, as the last injunction of the dying, that the funeral be carried on with all the dignity and pomp that our worth, our merit, our attain- ments, and our positions as Seniors of "grave and reverend mien" must certainly have deserved. As to such estate as it has pleased the Fates and our own strong hands and brains to win for us, we do dispose of the same as follows: ITEM: We give and bequeath to the dear faculty, who have been our instructors in all the wisdom of the ages, a sweet and unbroken succession of restful nights and peaceful dreams. It has been a hard strain on them, for Seniors are said to be at all times and under all conditions difficult to manage. But they have all done their duty, and verily, now shall they have well-earned reward. ITEM : Again, we give and bequeath to our beloved faculty all the amazing knowledge and startling information that we have furnished them from time to time in our various examination papers, If the faculty see fit, they are hereby authorized to give out such of this information to the world as they may feel the world is ready to receive. We trust they will also feel at perfect liberty to make use of all such bits of wisdom and enlightenment for the education of the classes to come after us. This, of course, is left entirely to their personal discretion. ITEM: To the Freshman Class that is to be-any overlooked cuds of gum we may have left adhering to the underside of desks, banisters, assembly seats, or any likely or unlikely places. We have. sometimes had to rid ourselves of these in too much haste to be able to pick and choose the most desirable means of disposal. ITEM: The following may seem but trifling bequests, but we hope they may be accepted, as a continual reminder of the generosity of heart displayed in our free and full'bestowal: lst. Elizabeth Anderson wills and bequeaths her height to Park Wolfe. 2nd. Willard Campbell wills and bequeaths his voice to Paula Parker. 3rd john Lesik wills and bequeaths his home in Mill Village to Fritz Whittaker. 4th.

Arthur Forbes wills and bequeaths his ability to court Freshmen to Pete Connell. to Rose The subjoined list will be recognized as entailed estates, to which we do declare the Class of 1932 the real and rightful successors: lst. Our seats in class-room. May they endeavor to fill them as advantageously, as promptly and as faithfully as we have done. Our seats in Assembly may be taken by whosoever is able to grab them first. 2nd. Our Senior Dignity. May they uphold it forever, with all seriousness and gravity, endeavoring to realize its vast importance, in spite of their natural light-mindedness and irresponsibility. 3rd. Any stubs of pencils, erasers or scraps of paper that we may inadvertently leave behind us in the excitement and haste of gathering up our cherished treasures for the last time. May they feel free to make use of, and feel, perhaps, that they may, in some mystic way, inpart some of our great knowledge to them. Last comes the one thing hard for us to part with. To our successors we must leave our places in the hearts and thoughts of our Principal and Teachers. They will love them, unworthy as we feel they are, even as they have loved us: they will show them all the same tender kindness and attention that they have bestowed upon us: they will feel the same interest in their attempts and successes: the same sorrow when they fail. We trust that the Class of 1932 will appreciate all this as deeply as we have done. Besides these enforced gifts, we leave-not of necessity, but of our own free will-our blessing, tender memories of our pleasant associations together, and our forgiveness for anything that we may not have exactly appreciated in the demonstrations of the past, and a pledge of friendship from hence-forth and forever. We do hereby constitute and appoint the said Principal sole executor of this our last will and testament. ln Witness Whereof, We, the Class of 1931, the testators, have to this our will, written on one sheet of parchment, set our hands and seal this twenty-seventh day of May, one thousand nine hundred and thirty one. atv. E-gf va ne a--- is ste F wa CLASS PROPHEC Y '31 One wintry evening in December, 1950, our teacher, formerly Miss Rachel Rouse, was sitting in front of the fireplacefthinking of the class of '31. On the wall beside her chair was a button. lf one wished to know about anyone or see anyone, all he must do to acquire such was to press the button, and lo, there before him would come a vision of this person in his line of work. "I wonder where the President of the Class of '31 is," mused the teacher, as she pushed the button. A giggle was heard and then. Martha was seen slowly to appear. She was sitting in a chair in a small hotel in Washington, D. C., the name of the hotel being "Swish Inn." Soon the picture faded. T- "What could that cut-up Donald France be doing," she thought as again she pushed the button. Then on the air floated these words: "Right this way ladies and gentlemen," and there was Don standing on a soap box, with a crowd about him, openly denouncing our government. He was wearing a derby, and over his arm hung a cane." That picture faded likewise. Others came and went at the pushing of the button, but we shall not enumerate them here for we feel that we should stick tothe original members of the class of '31. A window cleverly decorated loomed into sight. There stood Arthur Forbes gazing at his accomplishment. A vision of far-away China appeared. l Victoria Baldwin was standing in front of a small group of Chinese girls trying to teach them. She had been a missionary for ten years we were informed. The next view portrayed a hospital in which two nurses, Alberta Bellinger and Neva Brown, were caring for a patient. Upon closer investigation, the face of Willard Campbell was recognized as the sufferer. He had been working in a mine when it had exploded. The doctor came in and who should it be but our old friend Cecil Carbaugh. Bright lights glared through the room! The Metropolitan Theatre in New York appeared with Mary Baumbach as official ticket taker. A sign above the window read something to the following effect: "ChiefiHelen Wandell, Assistant Operator, Stella Lesnickf' The inside of the theatre showed astounding things. Marguerite Smith and Mary Gregor were usherettes. On the screen appeared our old friend Harriet Brakeman playing in her first picture, "The Wolf." Then the vaudeville act, "The Lions,"g Charles was singing while Arthur acted. Some dogs were heard barking. There stood Harold Siverling, the dog catcher, with three white poodles in his arms. He was taking them home to his wife, formerly Miss Elaine Chapman. The old High School sedately loomed up in the distance. In one classroom stood Olga Gorka, who was teaching shorthand. In the office sat the principal, Clifford Kerr, with his assistant, lirvie Pennell. In another classroom stood Neil Dewey, who was teaching his young students how he worked the Yo-yo when he was a boy in this same old ll. C. H.S. A business office claimed our thoughts. Ross Shreve was the manager with Lula Watson and Beatrice Phelps as his most industrious and faithful stenographers. A door opened, another prominent office appeared. On the door was written "Edith Anderson, Lawyer." Inside sat Edith pondering over a hard case. She had at last attained her ambition of being a criminal lawyer. +A- If - sa w-1- - is HS? A -I--f--'lb-' i 95' t -a Pure fresh air began to drift through the room. There stood John Lesik. He had become a scientific argiculturist and was one of the best in his section of the state. A large steamship was heard. On board the steamer was a young couple who were traveling around the world. It was no other than Mr. and Mrs. Clare Conover. Mrs. Conover was formerly Miss Esther King as you will doubtless recall. The captain appeared. Why, it was Marshall Shields! just then a familiar looking man stopped and talked with the captain. It was Donald Lord. Upon inquiring as to his present position, they were sur- prised to hear that he was on his way to France where he had just been appointed as the United States Ambassador. VVhile mentioning the Sports that were flashed upon the screen, we must not forget the play-off for the finals in tennis to see whether our champion Miss Lucile Bradley or Helen Wills should be the victor. The next important view was of a secluded study with Miss Edna Sexton as the sole occupant, revising Gregg Shorthand. Why, there is an insane asylum in which Doris Henry is trying to teach the inmates French. A large red store came into view. Wilbur Baldwin stood behind the counter, not as a clerk, but as a proprietor of one of the great Atlantic and Pacihc stores. A large gymnasium came into sight. Coach Paul Peard was seen with the Basketball team. He was getting them in trim for the big game of the season. The next interesting scene showed Margaret Reynolds and Frances jones as beauty parlor owners. A man who had responded to fix the priceless radio was none other than our old scientific friend, Norman Pier. An aeroplane was heard above. As it landed the face of the pilot could be distin- guishedg it was Maurice Wasson. Who would have thought he would have taken up avia- tion? The next scene was the one in which Worthe Smith, the dancing teacher, was giving a lesson. A large country home was coming into view. On the veranda sat Dean Weed: he had made his fortune collecting Indian pennies with Virginia Filegar as his very efficient co-worker. The last picture came very dimly. Elizabeth Anderson was standing over a dying woman in a hospital. Elizabeth at last had become a nurse. Rachel sighed, "The button is broken, but it was worth it to know where the' class of '31 is. One thing, they all seemed very, very happy in the success they had obtained." W-- a a .. at e - -k ew SENIOR ACTIVITIES SENIOR SOCIAL CALENDAR The Date-October 25, 1930 The Time-8:00 P. M. The Place-Home of Beatrice Phelps, at Lincolnville. The Eats'-Everything good. The Girls--All High School girls, arrived with their favorite boy friend. The Results-a darn good time! October 31, 1930: Ho-ho-ho! Who belongs to that funny outfit? Well, if it isn't "Amos" in the per- son of Fat Chesley! Ha-ha-ha, gee, give me time to laugh! If that piano player with the red nose isn't Glenn Middleton and the drummer Bill Gillette! Who's that doing that cute little tap-dance? Oh, sure, Helen Toner and Percy Clark! Where am I seeing all these things? Why, at the Senior Cabaret Dance, of course! P. S.-They're serving cider 'n doughnuts-'n everything. November 18, 1930: If this didn't turn out to be a red-letter day! The Seniors got out of the first two periods this P. M. But we owe it all to Dr. Guy Bingham, who gave us the best talk on "Are You Living" and "Choosing A Vocation." He certainly knew his subject! Why, in fact he could have made us cry-if he had have felt like it. November 10, 1930: You wonder where all the Senior girls were on the evening of November the tenth? Well, to tell you the truth, judge, they were enjoying the best dinner and afterwards a wonderful program that the Business and Professional Women's Club was giving them. They were certainly entertained royally, and they got real flowers as place-cards. January 8, 1931: Honestly, it seemed as if all of Union City was at the Senior Pancake Supper tonight at the Grange Hall fbut of course it wasn'tj. Anyway, there was a big crowd and every- thing was de-lic-ious! Why shouldn't it be-the pancakes-milk-coffee and syrup were donated-that should make everyone happy at least! March 21, 1931: St. Patrick's Dance. The last Senior dance this year and everyone surely had a very good time. The hall looked awfully nice-and the music was good. -if 1 Ha w- - ---if ,IUNIORS SOPHS FROSH -Q2 m mm 2 ffsssi M MW , wa xes - - so Junior Class History As a balloon ascends slowly toward the clouds, so we, the Junior Class, for three years have 'been rising to knowledge, broadening our minds, which have steadily opened as ways of learning creep in, as the bud of a flower opens to the stray sunbeams. As Freshies we entered this school in the year of '28-'29, We were nearly as green as the grass on which we walked, seemingly indifferent to the remarks of the upper class- men which, however, sank in and were profited by, so that when we started our Sophomore year, none would imagine us to have been so green. During this term four Sophomore yearj we took a lead in everything. In all acti- vities we were among the foremost. They may have laughed at us the first year, but they could not now! We started our junior year with a bang, being full of pep and energy, stored up during the summer, which must have a vent somewhere. We entered whole-heartedly into our studies the first of the term, but sad though it is, our interest in studies soon flagged, to be taken up by Glee Club, Girl Reserves, Hi-Y, R-Y, etc. , At our first business meeting, we, of course, elected officers: Vanya Root, President: Gen Montague, Vice-Presidentg Alta Jenson, Secretaryg Arthur Glenn, Treasurerg Ruth Shepard, Historian. At a later time the class chose Clifford Carlburg as Cheer-leader and Betty Kunkel as Sub. Our basketball teams are even better than last year while the volley ball teams, a new addition to our activities, show great promise. Our dances turned out successfully, especially the football dance which was quite original. This was held in November to celebrate the last game of the season. The hall was decorated in a most unique way with banners and footballs. With great regret we relinquish our place as juniors to the coming class for we have known much joy during this year. We hope the next class will enjoy it as much as we have and pass on to our Senior year with sincere good wishes toward all.

Our sturdy ship,"Study", was piloted principally by our president, Park Wolf, Q Vice President, Marjorie Steves, Secretary, Philip Perkins, Treasurer, John Mulkie, Historian, Madoline Miller. With their assistance throughout the year, our boat will soon be anchored in the new harbor. The Class immediately took a steady pace in the schoolfbanking, and we vowed harder and harder to reach the 10075 mark. Many of our crew were members of the Glee Clubs and Orchestra and we were well represented in the Operetta, HRobin Hood." ' The Anvil subscribers were numerous, hoping to aid the Seniors in their work. Much interest has been shown in class and varsity basketball, and we are, also, well represented among the on-lookers at the games. The Sophomore class is a group of snappy, hardworking boys and girls, as shown by the number of A and B students on the honor roll. We have made good so far this year and are waiting to make good our social debut at our yearly Sophomore Dance, to be held sometime in the near future. SAIL ON, CLASS OF '33, TO HIGHER THINGS!

Our Class took off at 8:45 Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, September the second with our gold and black banners floating proudly on the breeze. During those First few days we enjoyed the novelty of high school life even though we frequently got into the wrong classes and were "razzed" by the Sophs. Our airship is very large and holds ninety-four passengers, but, nevertheless, we hope to get through without any forced landings unless we should happen on some unexpected air pockets along the way. Vlfe have elected Paul Mclnerney pilot of our sturdy ship with Billie Mulkie to help him keep it in good mechanical order, Rose Montague to keep a record of our exploits and Harold Cooper to take charge of the funds for the trip. 1 One of our first stops was at a corn roast held at Robert Smith s home. fVVe especially enjoyed the ride afterwardsj. Later we went to the party held at Beatrice Phelp's home, the Cabaret Dance given at the City Hall on l-lallowe'en night, the Football Dance, and R-Y and Hi-Y Dance, both of which were also at the City Hall. The Freshman Class, however, made its first social attempt at the Freshman Dance given in the Hall on Thursday night, January the twenty-ninth. Everyone had just finished his exams and showed it by the lively time at the dance which was not "green" even though some of the upper classmen thought it would be, Music was furnished by a three piece orchestra and refreshments were served. Altogether we think Our Dance was a great success.

Abbey and Mr. Edward Graser were operating a wood pump factory on the present site of the Union City Chair Factory. In the following year the late Hon. Charles M. Wheeler of LeBoeuf Township, and his brother-in-law, Mr. George A. Glazier, -a practical chairman formerly of Gardner, Mass., purchased minor interests in the concern and the firm name became Abbey, Graser 81 Company. Shortly after the admission of these gentlemen to the firm, the manufacturing of a short line of chairs and rockers was added to the pump business, under the supervision of Mr. Glazier. Under the new management the business was continued satisfactorily until the financial panic, similar in some respects to the great slowing down of business that Union City has experienced during the past year, which brought financial difficulties for the company that could not be overcomeg and in 1875 the business was sold by the Sheriff of Erie County to Mr. Wheeler. The plant remained idle until 1877 when the manufacture of chairs and rockers was again resumed by Mr. Wheeler, with Mr. Glazier as superintendent and manager. The plant was operated continuously by these gentlemen until 1881 when it was sold to Mr. Lou Heine- man, of Jamestown, N. Y., and Mrs. Ellen Cheney, of Ashburnham, Mass., whose husband, Mr. Harrison C. Cheney, became the manager-he having been a practical chair-maker of that city. During the night of Monday, july 24, 1882, the factory and several adjoining buildings were burned to the ground with an es- timated Ioss of SS50,000. Mr. Marshall Moore purchased Mr. Heineman's interest in the business and the plant was immediately rebuilt. The main building being one hundred and twenty by forty feet, two and one- half stories high, with an additional building sixty by thirty feetq employment was given to thirty-five men, with an average production of three hundred chairs a day. The out-put being sold mainly in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia, while the present field of consumption includes practically every state in the Union from coast to coast, and from the Great Lakes on the north to the Gulf of Mexico on the South. During the early history of the industry in Union City there was an abundance of raw material in the immediate vicinity consisting of Beech, Maple, and Elm lumber that was delivered by wagons and sleighs at from 86.00 to 357.00 per thousand feet, compared to the present price of 840.00 to 1560.00 per thousand feet, and being shipped to Union City by railroad from Texas, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and West Virginia, with smaller shipments by rail from distant points in Pennsylvania and New York. Labor in the early days ranged in price from seventy-five cents to one dollar and a half per day of ten hours: the present daily wage for the same length of time is 83.25 to 35.00. Kitchen chairs were sold as low as 81.85 per dozen unfinished and at 33.35 per dozen finished, while a "Boston" rocking chair was sold to the trade at about 88.00 per dozen finished. These chairs and rockers were practically all hand-made and their durability is best shown by the fact that many of them are still in daily use. To the writer's personal knowledge, one of the "Boston" rockers is in the home of Mrs. C. M. Wheeler at Wheeler Place, another is in the home of Mr. H. B. Randall on East High Street, this city, while still another is doing service in a beautiful Glenwood Heights' home of an Erie gentleman. The Union City Chair Factory was again destroyed by fire on the night of April 29, 1907. The present solid brick buildings being erected under the personal supervision of the late Mr. J. C. Caflisch, who had ac- quired a controlling interest in the plant by the purchase of the Cheney interests several years prior to the conflagration, and who most successfully continued the operations of the organization as President and Treas- urer until the time of his death on july 9, 1927. The Keystone Chair Company was organized and operated for several years by Messrs. William J. Sloan and Ray P. Tipton, of Buffalo, N. Y., and Dr. O. M. Shreve who is at present practicing his profession in Erie. The business was finally closed in january, 1904. The Standard Chair Company was organized by Messrs. B. F. Camp, H. L. Church, Ray K. Fenno, and Charles Tilden. Their plant was destroyed by fire in the fall of 1906 and never rebuilt. Immediately after the fire Messrs. L. S. Clough, of VVarren, Pa., Paul D. Mullin, Orval C. Hatch, C. I.. Clough and E. D. Clough, organized a company and erected the present structure. They have always enjoyed a large patronage from the furniture dealers throughout the country. The Shreve Chair Company was organized in the year of 1903 by Messrs. L. D. Shreve E. A. Shreve, and W. E. Everson who successfully operated the plant for nearly ten years when another disasterous fire destroyed the plant on March 8, 19135 the loss reaching upwards to 8150,000. The Hames had scarcely died out when plans were being made by these gentlemen for the present up-to-date, modern, and fire-proof structure that was completed and placed in operation during the early weeks of the following year. Several smaller chair factories were built and operated for a term of years including the Globe factory, that was located on Pleasant Street, later destroyed by fire and never rebuilt. The Universal Chair Factory, another minor factory, was operated for a time in the buildings now occupied by the Star Handle Company on Concord Street. J. C.

Practices were held every Vllednesday morning and our first test of skill was the operetta 'LRobin Hood." We are now working on a program to be broadcasted over W. L. B. VV., also, one to be presented for the Golden Rule Club. We wish to express our gratitude to Miss Martin for her able direction during the past year. GIRLS' GLEE CLUB Under the able leadership of Miss Evelyn Martin the Girls' Glee Club has passed a most successful year. The following officers guided the Club during the year: Elaine Chapman, President, lilnora Ashton, Vice-President, Marguerite VV1lley, Librarian, and Helen Toner, Secretary and Treasurer. The main event of the year was the Operetta "Robin Hood," which was a huge suc- cess. One of the many parties was an Automobile Party. This was held in the Music Room which was decorated very nicely with automobile accessories.

We are very proud of our Clarinetist, Albert Bauer, who was one of the 250 students selected from the High Schools of Eastern United States, to play in the Eastern National High School Orchestra at the Music Supervisor's Conference at Syracuse, N. Y. HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA Our High School Orchestra originated three years ago-in 1928. At first we had very few instruments and therefore not many players. At every school play, we were there doing our best under the supervision of our capable instructor, Miss Martin. VVe Continued to progress in our school year and added a few instruments to our list and played many more places. However, I'm sure the orchestra members will agree that this has been our most successful year. At the first of the year many more instruments were initiated, giving the orchestra the best tone quality which has yet been reached. To climax all, the Golden Rule Club invited us to broadcast in their hour over Oil City. The whole Orchestra was proud of this and also to be the guest of the same Club a little later to give the same program. VVe hope that the people of this town have been as interested in our playing as we have been in pleasing them. We have had a lot of co-operation in town, and we hope that the Orchestra from now on will improve even more than it has. This ought to be possible, for there is no one graduating from the group this year. -ff 1 -a re - as Q - y y Hifi! , fffalii OFFICERS OF THE HI-Y PRESIDENT ,,,,,, ,,,,-.,A,,-,,,-k , , ,,,,,,,..,,, ..,, C HARLES LYONS VICE-PRESIDENT .... ,,..,.,.....,,,.,.......,. .,,,,, . .

During football season the Hi4Y Club purchased a quantity of towels for use by the home and visiting teams alter home games. On December 5, 6 and 7, seven fellows from Union City attended the Annual Older Boys' Conference which was held at Oil City. The Conference consisted of banquets, friendship gatherings, special speakers, and discussions, which were verv hel ful to those in attendance. .

We had no chance to win, but we put up a good battle. We were simply outclassed in every way. SEPTEMBER 27-UNION BEATS YOUNGSVILLE-18-12 Scarcely recovered from our defeat at Meadville, we journeyed to Youngsville to win a game. There was brilliant playing done by both teams but we were just too good for them. OCTOBER 4-UNION LOSES TO WESLEYVILLE-25-0 With too much confidence obtained from our victory over Youngsville, we expected an easy victory over Wesleyville and as a result, we took a 25-0 defeat. No brilliant playing from Union. OCTOBER 9-ALUMNI DEF EATS HIGH SCHOOL-19-0 The old grads turned out in full array to do battle with the High School. They did battle and defeated us 19-O. OCTOBER 11-ALBION WINS-6-0 Albion came, saw. and conquered. Over-confidence seemed to be the downfall of our team. Our team did all right but couldn't get much accomplished. Albion's score came in the last two minutes of play. OCTOBER 17-UNION LOSES TO MILLCREEK Union journeyed to Millcreek with the idea of returning with a victory. We would have won the game, but the referee decided that Millcreek should win and they didg he did everything but carry the ball. NOVEMBER 7-OUR WORST DEFEAT-42-6 We went to Girard and suffered a 42-6 defeat. The same thing happened there that happened at Millcreek. Well, anyway, after the game we had a nice little free-for- all. NOVEMBER 11-HIGH SCHOOL DEF EATS LEGION-19-0 Instead of putting down a defeat, we will ring up a victory. We defeated the American Legion team on Armistice Day 19-0. Some battle but the best team won. NOVEMBER 15-ANOTHER VICTORY-55-0 Little Springbords team came and we literally wiped the field with them. VVe should have beaten them worse but felt that it was bad enough. Peard and Perkins were high scorers. It was in this game that Frank Kennedy had the misfortune to break his leg. It left a bad hole in our line for the game with North East. NOVEMBER 22-LAST GAME OF THE SEASON North East visited us for the last game of the year and we lost by a score of 19-7. It was very cold, but we did the best that we could. We, the fellows who have taken part in athletics, wish to thank Dr. Weitzel for the Services he has rendered to us free of charge. 4+-is-1 ai ms +A .Ie aw ww ,I December 19 December 23 jnminry jzlnllnry jnnllary january .I nnunry February February February Ifelxrunry I:0IJ!'llilI'5 Ifelmrunry March Mzlrrh March IVInri'h March v 14 15 23 30 31 3 6 18 20 25 27 11 13 1-1 19 28 1930 1930-W 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1931 1951 UNION ITNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION UNION GIRLS UNION GIRLS' BASKETBALL VVe xs.

We didn't win by much, but-no difference-we won. Wesleyville-january 14. 1931: First league game of the year and we came out on top with a 39-25 score. We sure hope to keep it up. Albion-january 15, 1931: We didn't loose, and we didn't win. The score at the end of the game was 17-17. It was a good game, though. Girard-January 23, 193-1: We lost our first league game by a score of 17-23, but we are glad it is the first of the season instead of the last. McKeanijanuary 30, 1931: ' lf you never saw a miniature basketball court you should have been at McKean. We won to the tune of 21-10. l Lincolnville-january 31, 1931: The long-waited for event and we redeemed ourselves. We showed Lincolnville we could play basket- ball when we won 25-28. North East-February 3, 1931: North East came over with the idea of beating us. But-when they looked at the score board it said Union City 19-North East 15. This put us first place in the League. West Millcreek-February 6, 1931: XVe went over to VVest Millcreek to show them how to play basketball, but we were disappointed in ourselves when we went down to second place with a score 23-18, but we haven't given up hopes yet. Wesleyville-Wednesday, February 18, 1931: The game with lfVesleyville was a little bit one sided, but we found it interesting because we were on the right side. Score 35-13. Nice! Albion-Friday, February 20, 1931: A nice game of football was played at Albion. Albion certainly can tackle and their line had some pu sh behind it. Union lost by one touchdown-21-15. Girard-Wednesday, February 25, 1931: Another big disappointment when Girard beat us 15-27. We will hand it to them they have a good team. McKean-Friday, February 27, 1931: After being beaten by Girard we had to take our spite out on someone and it turned out to be McKean. We only beat them 38-5. Anyway we feel ready for North East. West Millcreek-March 11, 1931: lt was to be decided if West Millcreek would be county champs. We decided it for them with a 16-15 victory. If we couldn't get the cup, we could beat the champs. North East-March 13, 1931: Although it was Friday, the thirteenth, it did not worry us. We had to beat North East and we did it, 23-28. We showed them, the fruit pickers, how to fill baskets quickly. Waterford-March 14, 1931: We met our old riva-ls Waterford. We say rivals because they beat us once last year. We hardly beat them by enough, only 36-2, but it will do! Boys-Girls-March 17, 1931: It was advertised that the girls of U. C. H. S. would play the boys at 8 o'clock. But it was a mistake, the boys didn't play at all. The girls played with a very nice looking bunch of strange flappers. They took us over too by a score 31-24. We surely had fun, the boys don't know what they missed. Waterford-March 28, 1931: VVe went to Waterford. We just couldn't be stopped. Why??? Because the floor was so slippery. It was our last game so we made it a big victory 25-4. -+A mi me - ef- 4, SIIII , M, ee iisitit A imiont ty Name I.incohiville,, Ritz , Alumni Youngsville Iidinlmoro XYesleyx'iIle, .-Xllmion .

Forbes was high man for the Maroon and White. December 25-THE BIG GAME We played the Alumni here on Christmas Night and defeated them for the first time in years. It was a walk-away for the High School. The score was 29-9g Peard was high score man. December 29-OUR FIRST GOOD TRIP We journeyed to Youngsville for our third game of the season. They expected to get revenge on us for defeating them in football. We showed them that we were better than they by defeating them 19-13. January 9-FIRST LEAGUE GAME Edinboro's squad visited us Friday night with the idea that they were going to open the league by defeating us. They were ahead of us at the end of the First quarter, but then we took the matter in hand, and with Peard leading the scoring, we won by a score of 19-10. January 14-WESLEYVILLE THERE Having won one game, the Maroon and White squad thought that they would have an easy time at Wesleyville, but they were due for a fall and the opposing squad made it a good defeat, while they were at itg the score was 32-22 in their favor. January 16-AN EXCITING GAME After we had been beaten by VVesleyville, Albion came here with the idea that they were going to beat us, but we l'ad our own ideas as to that, and when the final whistle blew, we were on the long end of the score 34-32. Peard was high score man. Perkins was high score man. January 23-A BIG LOSE The teams traveled to Girard to do battle with the leading contender of the basketball league. Our offense couldn't get started and our defense couldn't stop them, so we dropped the game by the score of 39-9. January 30-ANOTHER WIN We traveled to McKean to take on the new entry to the League and surely met plenty of opposition. Our ten point lead in the First quarter went to our heads, but when they overcame that lead in the third quarter, we had to get down to business and do our stuff. We came out on the long end of the score, 28-20. January 31-MINIATURE FOOTBALL-Lincolnville This team beat us when we played them on their floor so they came here to repeat it. The Maroon and White was after revenge and so the game waxed hot and furious, but when the final whistle blew, we were on top by a score of 24-18. Peard was high score man. February 3-A HARD GAME-NORTH EAST HERE With Union being tied for third place and North East being tied for second, they came here to make an easy win. The game was anybody's until the final whistle when we forged ahead to win by a score of 24-18. February 6-WE DROP A NOTCH With North East, Millcreek and Union all tied for second place, we traveled to West Millcreek, for the purpose of breaking that tie. After a slow game we came out on the short end of a 25-18 score. That leaves Millcreek and North East still tied for second place. February 13-LOSE TO EDINBORO The Maroon and White journeyed to Edinboro for a go with their tossers. After the referee had sent four of our regulars off the floor, the game was a cinch for Edinboro, we lost by a 30-16 score. February 18-ANOTHER LOSE Wesleyville came to Union to meet us on our own floor. As we hadn't been beaten on our own floor, we thought that we would have the high score. Vtlesleyville thought differently and held us in check while they piled up enough counts to beat us by a score of 16-12. February 25-A BIG DEFEAT We had callers last Wednesday evening. Girard, the champions, came over for a little visit with us. We played a game of basketball with them and went down to defeat by the large score of 34-12. You know it is good manners to let your guest carry away the honors! February 27-AN EASY VICTORY VVe were hosts to McKean here Friday night. The papers had said that they were going to pull a surprise on us, and we were expecting almost anything. It was all a false alarm though, and we had easy going, March 10-WEST MILLCREEK-HERE We were visited by VYest Millcreek, who held second place in the league. They thought that they would have something easy to contend with, seeing that they beat us on their Hoor. But, with Wolfe back on the squad and various other changes made, Millcreek met with a big surprise, and they took the short end of a 27-24 score. winning by a score of 40-10. March 13--NORTH EAST TAKES US OVER We journeyed to North East to try to end our league season with a bang, but it was no use. It was a hard fought game from the start to the finish, and it was any n1an's game up until the final whistle blew. Fate seemed to be against us and we lost 22-20. March 14-WE WIN A GAME Vllaterford paid us a visit and we sent them home in a worse condition than they were in when they came. After a brisk game of basketball, we sent them down to a 29-19 defeat. March 28-THE LAST GAME NVe went to XfVaterford to finish the basketball season for this year. They almost pulled a surprise and beat us, but we were just too good for them. VVe won by a 22-17 score. -a nim - t- F aiifil' 3 Stall?

Sincere efforts to build up an active and successful Girls' Athletic Association for the High School of Union City were made during the past year by our capable coach, Miss Clara Durbin. The aim is to promote a greater interest in the sports of the future than has been shown previously. The slogan of our Association is "a sport for every girl and every girl in a sport." All girls registered in Physical Education Classes are members of the Athletic Association. Active members are those who have earned points in some sport. The "U" Association is composed of the members of the Athletic Association who have obtained a HU." The officers of the Athletic Association are members of the "U" Association. The officers for 1930-31 are: President, Harriet Brakemang Secretary, Elaine Chapmang Treasurer, Ruth Harllock. An Advisory Committee consisting of two town women, one member of the High School Faculty, and the Director of Physical Education, who approved or rejected any undertakings of the Association, gave advice and took a personal interest in the affairs of the Association. Requirements for participating in sports consisted of registration in a physical education class and a passing average in all studies. Awards were given under certain requirements, namely: good posture, sportsmanlike spirit, having kept training rules and necessary points including: Cal Numerals-400 points. fbj "U"-1000 points or member of Varsity Basketball team or cheer leader. Cel Loving Cup-1500 points. 42. A--1 1 iggit 54 '39 'fin "'?V2, pf-'1"'4ko 2 A55 ' ' ' ' 'P w , . - '1f'- f I I. , bf" QP N .gwgfw-. -,. 35" ., ' . ., A, . ,x x t .. . ,Z , m ., . 7 , It .

VVe think this operetta was a real musical achievement, as the numbers were all more difficult than anything we have yet attempted. Charles Lyons, the artist of "Pickles" and college boy of the A'Blue Moon" made an incomparable "Robin" and gave what we believe was his best performance. Since this is his last year we wish him every success in his future work, and we shall miss him greatly in our next operetta, The highest praise is due him for his work. We were fortunate this year in having Professor Jenkins, who sings as well plays, take the part of King Richard. He portrayed the part of that regal person extremely well. Though this was her first appearance in an operetta, Louise Morse deserves much credit for her portrayal of Lady Marian. This part was exceedingly difficult but Louise made Robin's beloved live again by her excellent acting. She has another year at Union High, and who knows but what we will see her again. She was accompanied from her castle by Lady Elizabeth, Elaine Chapman. Next we have Ben Booster. Our Douglas with his derby and modern notions caused quite a riot of laughs among the leather clad archers. For comedy, page Douglas Cbut don't mention wooden headsj! What Hol 'Tis the Sheriff of Nottingham. Where has Frank been hiding himself? He has an excellent baritone voice and when he assumes that fierce look-well-we wouldn't want to meet him after dark. I Keith Henry as Allan A. Dale showed us what bass singing really is, and Rex Lock- wood made a jolly Friar Tuck, but we should remember that bald heads can't be removed as hats. VVith Keith is Florence Inman, one of our best Alto singers, who took the part of Mistress Minnie. The other members of this group are Marian Magee, who played Lady Lotta to per- fection, Grace johnson as Lady Rowena, Virginia Cross as Lady Lizzie, Prescott Goodwin as Will Scarlett and Park Wolf as Little John. In that peppy band of outlaws we find, Billy Mulkie, Frederick Stone, Dean Weed, Wilbur Baldwin, Frank Kuczaj, Russel Eaton, Paul Mclnerney, Harold Siverling, and Arthur Martin, and their friends, the merry maids of Kendal: Genevieve Montague, Thalia Flemming, Marjorie Chapin, Mae Smith, Zilla Barnett, Marjory Shreve, Helen Watson and Isabel Root. john Gates as Prince john, was well protected by the royal guards, Arthur Glenn, Arden Proper, Paul Connell, Charles Clark, Harold Cooper and Oliver jones. Roy Bishop was the grim, ghastly hangman and Ervie Pennell our faithful curtain man and prompter. Enough congratulations cannot be extended to the orchestra and the way they rendered the difficult musical numbers cannot be praised too highly. But wait! A mem- ber of the orchestra suggests that they could have done nothing without the direction of Miss Martin. So say we all. We won't forget Mrs. Mallory's fine accompanying at the piano, but if we should, please mention the "Bridal Chorus" Qrepeated-how many timesj and we will always recall how she saved us from disgrace. The between-act numbers this year included solos by Miss Alta Postance of Erie, Miss Mary Drake of Cambridge Springs, and Thelma Kennedy. The operetta was given for the benefit of the Music Fund. +A wa rm I iw w ww.

The story concerns Patricia Harrington, a girl who "runs second" to her older sister, She is the Patsy who is blamed whenever anything goes wrong, and is forced to remain in the background in order that her sister may be presented to advantage. Her father, a traveling man, is on her side and Finally declares his independence by putting Ma in her proper place. This brings about Patsy's ultimate triumph, and, needless to say, affords her happiness as the bride of Tony, the man she loves. The 1930 Banquet and Promenade The Juniors entertained the Seniors at a most delightful Banquet, which was held at the Baptist Church, May 23, 1930 at 6:30 P. M. The banquet hall was artistically decorated in the Senior Class colors, yellow and white, this color scheme being cleverly carried out through the entire dinner. The invocation was given, after which the following menu was served: Fruit cock- tail, chicken pie, mashed potatoes, creamed peas, and carrots, fruit salad, buttered rolls, celery, pickles, ice cream, cake, mints and nuts. Later, speeches were given by Mr. Milton Rouse, Miss Helen Morrow, Mr. Dean Weed, Miss Harriet Brakeman, Mr. Harry Smiley, and Professor A. C. Huntley, who were introduced in an amusing style by the Toastmaster, Charles Lyons. A beautiful duet was sung by the Misses Thelma Kennedy and Dorotha Reynolds. The invitation list included: juniors, Seniors, High School Faculty, School Board, Miss Monroe, and Rev. and Mrs. Dallman. The committee responsible for the success consisted of-Martha Lockwood, Chair- man: Charles Lyons, Allen Aikens, Esther King, Virginia Filegar, Wilbur Baldwin, and Edna Sexton. The most vivid of the season's festivities was the Junior Promenade, given at Cana- dohta Lake Dance Pavilion on May 23, 1930. It was beautifully decorated in our High School colors, Maroon and White. The outstanding event was the Promenade down the hall, at which time all the guests received favors. The Jerry Haggerty Orchestra of Sharon, Pa., furnished the music. The Committee which was responsible for this splendid success included :-Elaine Chapman, Harriet Brakeman, Arthur Forbes and Charles Lyons. +A fe wa les A I te 44 - 14 l 4 l Melvin liurlmer Billie Mulkie VVortl1e Smith, E it .

FIRST B y Zilla Barnett, Jzmim' I had never seen him before. He stood on the corner of Broadway and Ann Street, looking out over the swirling noonday traffic as it tore on undimi- ished by the rain that beat down in torrents, driving luckless pedestrians to cover. I said I had never seen him before, but there was an air of haunting familiarity about his tall, stooping form on which a great coat, much too large, drooped despondently, and about his deep-set eyes, which, though shadowed by care, still held a trace of spirit I seemed to know. Crossing to his corner amid screeching of brakes and maledictions of drivers, I was about to pass him when he turned and spoke to me. His voice was quiet, weary, yet it seemed that he was used to giving commands, not asking favors. "Sir," he asked, "can you tell me where R-w's is?" Now this being a very comfortable little restaurant which I sometimes frequented, and, I being a lover of adventure in all disguises, immediately decided what I would do. "I could tell you, but since I am going that way, may I not show you where it is?" He did not answer, but merely walked along beside me in silence until we came to the restaurant. I then suggested, tentatively, that he eat with me, and after a moments hesitation he nodded his consent. VVe entered the softly lighted room, which was gloriously dry and warm after the storm without, seated ourselves at the table and ordered our meal. Suddenly he A spoke. "VVhat made you ask me here?" Confused, I stammered a little, and he replied for me. "You thought to get an unusual experience or a tale of adventure, did you not?" "Yes, I did," I answered frankly. "You look like a man who has had both." He was silent for a time, and then over our cigars and coffee he told me the story I give to you. ' "I do not know my name or where I live. Does it startle you? Never- theless, it is the truth. I can remember, however, walking down a little- frequented street in this city one evening in search of pleasure and entering the laboratory of a friend who was a chemist. He was not there, but evidently he could not have been far away, since he had left a tube of dark, evil-smelling liquid on the long table where he performed experiments. I sat down to wait, intending not to touch anything for fear I might be burned or blown up, but -fs s wa rm - sa sg, .gg yga - . g... the tube fascinated me. I watched it, and as I looked the liquid seemed to change color and to float, yes, literally float, out of the tube. "Fearing that some valuable chemical might be lost if I didn't do some- thing, I picked the tube up, but it slipped from my fingers to the floor. I can never forget the next instant! There was a quick 'swosh,' like the sound of a Roman candle, and on the instant, the room seemed full of strange shapes. I do not know whether I experienced pain or not, but I do know that my body seemed to disintegrate, to return to the atoms from which it came! It is a fearful sensation, to know that one of natures highest laws is being transgressed, that one is disappearing. "For a long time all seemed to be blackness. It is strange that my mind could still know what was taking place. It was as if my brain dwelt apart and merely witnessed all that happened. Then at last the darkness appeared to be merging into light by a slow, slow, process. "Suddenly there seemed to be people around me. People, yes, but what strange people, yet after all not so different from me. They spoke a different language, of course, but it was not entirely unfamiliar to me. I dwelt in this place many years it seemed to me, and I learned their ways. They had many things that I had never seen or heard of, marvelous machines to make heat from the sun, powerful telescopes, and many other things. The land was much like our own except for different plants and animals. "At last these people seemed to accept me as their leader, and one told me that I was to lead them in battle against some enemy, the nature of which I couldn't determine. They seemed to be always afraid of it, whatever it was. "For many years it was not mentioned, but one day a young man came running toward our house. He screamed as he came. It is coming! It is coming. Now must Asgo fthe name they called mej show his power! What was coming, I could not imagine, nor could I ask, since everyone had suddenly disappeared into the house, barring doors and windows. Then I saw IT coming. Huge in its proportions and terrible in its aspect, the fearful thing approached. It was slimy, horrible to the utmost degree. I stood fascinated by it, and just as it was about to seize me-I stepped backward, and knew no more except the sensation of falling, falling! Then I ceased to fall. I was back again in that little chemist's laboratory! I lay there for hours, utterly exhausted, mentally and physically. The laboratory was dark, dust-covered, and ill-smelling. At last I could force my muscles to obey me, and I went to the door. It was nailed shut. At length a policeman let me out. A dream you say? No, it was not a dream. How do I know? Because I was wearing clothes of a half-century past, and my friend had been long since dead. "VVhere I was I do not know: I do not much care. No one will believe me, but I swear my story is true." .,- - w as T, .. tt A Modern Parable FIRST By Victoria Baldwin, Senior Then in assembly the principal made this speech before the student body, saying: "What person of you, working hard for once, if he lose his Yo-yo doth not leave his studies until he finds it? And when he hath found it, he taketh it and playeth with it rejoicing Then when ten twenty-five comes, he calleth together his friends with their Yo-yo's saying unto them, 'Rejoice with me for I have found my Yo-yo which was lost! "I say unto you likewise, joy shall be in the office over one student that discards his Yo-yo more than over ninety and nine others who have none to start with. "Or what girl having ten pieces of a note if she lose one piece doth not look around and search the desks until she finds it? And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her classmates together saying, 'Rejoice with me for I have found the piece which I have lost.' "Likewise I say unto you there is joy in the presence of the faculty over one note that goes to the dead letter office." Then said the principal in assembly, "It is impossible but that offences will come, but woe unto him through whom they come."

He left the canvas standing there, For all the world to see, Mystical and incomplete Yet wonderful to me. Night thought that he would make a sung So in his canvas bright He cut a hole both round and true That he might hang a light Behind it, and have it gleam Like the real sung But Day surprised him at the task And he left his work undone. Zilla Barnett THE PATH THIRD By Zilla Barnett, Junior The path I have chosen lies Straight and broad before me Until it reaches that curtain The future. Then what of the path? Does it turn and branch off Or go straight on? Or does it Stop short so that the traveler Can not advance? Except by one small path That leads-where? To nothing or--to everything? RAIN-WASHED FOU RTH By Zilla Barnett, Junior I would go to the field After rain When the grass is wet And kneel in the grass, And see the leaves, Blowing. The sky is clean and clear, The sun is golden. It makes rainbows, Bright rainbows, ln my lashes. The word is fresh When it rains. Sweet flowers hold water in their cups The moist warm earth-smell Holds a promise of life, Of young life Pulsing. THE LITTLE OLD CLOCK ON THE WALL What is it shapes all our destinies, Our lives whether great or small? What measures the march of humanities feet? The little old clock on the wall. The tick of the clock tells us each seconfl's flyingg We must up and about it right now. The languid, the slackers, will never get by, Till before the old clock they do bow. "There's need in this world for those who will work Their willingness ne'er will be lost. Yea, verily, verily, they shall be great," From the clock on the wall this we grasp. Nllhat is it shapes all our destinies, Our lives whether great or small? What measures the march of humanities feet? The little old clock on the wall. Edna Sexton . are wa rm I sl 65 lil! RED HAIR Hair as red as the sun's dull glow. Eyes as blue as the waters below. And yet this child wasn't fit to be seen Por he always was dressed in purple and green. A lady took him in hand one day, And while passing by was heard to say, If dressed in other colors than those we see A fair looking child this boy would be. So she bought suits in colors of orange and red, I'o match the shade of the hair on his head. He lookeil quite well until one day, He wondered away from home to play. He went to play and fell in a creek, Which with dyes from the woolen mills was thick, And when pulled out a sight was seen, For his hair, brows and lashes were colored green.

Now just suppose their wives should die, CThey often do, you knowj. Then all these men would have to try To set out and run the show. Now while their wives are living VVhy c0uldn't they do the same? And let her see that when she's gone They'll know how to play the game. Ruth Shepard THE FOOTBALL PUNTERS They were at it all the time And how those boys could hit the linel The fight they had was sure the sort That shows old Union up in sports. Now there was Art that played left end And say, that boy could sure defend, He hit them hard and they did tlop And Art was always on the top. That Big jack Shreve came next in line In blocking plays old jack was fine. He knew his stuff and how to blulifg His party never got too rough. Fat Chesley they could never roll That boy could make the biggest hole! And when they got too mean and stout Old Fat would merely lay them out. Dutch could always show the fight He placed the ball with good eye-sight. When some big guy came through his way Dutch smacked him hard and down he'd lay About the time the game got rough Frank Kennedy would show his stuff He charged and blocked and fought like sin, For he always liked his team to win. Dean Weed with all his crazy pranks, Would never weaken in the ranks. He played for sport but all the same He liked Mill Village to hear his fame. Ralph Gahring over on the right Could tackle like a streak of light. He broke up plays and stopped his men And sure showed up as a good right end. To back the line and wake up Shreves Old Comstock showed up in the sqeeze. When some misplay went through a man You'd see old Cummy right on hand. The biggest kick of game and all Was to see Squirt Strong run with the ball Two skips, a jump, and he'd gallop in Right up he'd get and try it again. Next thing would be a word from Perk, "Why don't you guys do some work?" The Captain of his team, by gosh And he played good ball when Vanya watched Then Paul would make a ten yard gain-- That's the way he won his fame. Then near the goal he'd have to punt, His father-in-law would only grunt, Otherwise you'd hear him yell, "Come on now, boys, let's give them h-." This worthy team was coached with heart, Eck Boag sure tried to do his part, And when his team got far behind VVith soothing words he expressed his mind And so the team of '31, Although all games could not be won, Sure gave their best to raise their school To a higher athletic goal.

Vacation begins. HO0RAYl Back from our long vacation. Mr. Mowery ls a hair cut: probably a Christmas present. Coach lioag is now becoming very, very feverish from the worry of his creditors-Christmas bills, and no money. Again jack Shreve arrives just in time to find his girl off with another man. janet will break his heart or his neck. Whichl? Not a sign of pity showed on l'ark's kind face when he heard about johnny's flaming date with Harriet. Hoy, what friends they are. A great dance sponsored by our worthy friends, the Freshmen. It rained all day until Mr. jenkins gave the world an icy look and froze the surrounding vapor. Another lucky day. Elaine and Martha arrived at school on time. Had a new idea blow in today. The Seniors are talking about a circus. I wonder if the elepant will wear trunks. just another of those cold, dreary days that we all detest. johnny Gates, the legal shiek of the school, is now selling a new face powder which he claims has made his rosy complexion. Fat Chesley went to Bible Study today and came out much happier. He was singing "The Prisoner's Song." Hard times struck the Smith Family. Miss Stull lent Worth a two cent stamp for urgent use. We expect to see Mr. jenkins as Richard the Lion Hearted tonight. Can he really roar? The Operetta went off fineg Robin wore green stockings, indicating cold weather. Indication of harder times-Mr. Porter borrowed a penny from Glenn Comstock to buy a stamp Miss Durbin, in a Liberal oration to the B. B. girls, also- gave the boys a good old bouncing. North East had the surprise of its life when U. C. teams put those Grape Pickers in the loser's chair. ' Union City is now on the road to progress, for Mr. lioag is collecting and filing all notes in his hope chest, intending to publish them for his future literary home. Miss Stull told her Shorthand I Class that the only way to get a degree in that subject was to develo it. l.owellpHinkson defines the most perfect boy in high schoolg Paul Peard-he never smokes, drinks, swears, or practices any had habits, and is GOOD-LOOKING.

In Problems of Democracy today Mr. Anderson was asked what kind of stock mules were. In answer he said, "Vibrating Stock." The Union City Blizzard puts us under the impression that U.

Poor old Dad Smith is again a patient in the hospital. -If - wa ne - A+ lllllllllllll wlllli ii,llxi.i ..i... ............... . ti , ,,,, .jj ,,,, ,, , , , ,.,, , ,.,, ,,,,,,, , ,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,., Jflillhl. . 1 W M sfiiiil ' 3 4' " Willis ' ' Feb. 18 Feb. 19 Feb. 20 Feb. 23 Feb. 24 Feb. 25 Feb. 26 Feb. 27 April 1 April 2 April 8 April 9 April 10 April 13 April 14 April 15 April 16 April 17 April. 20 April 21 April 22 April 23 April 24 April 27 April 28 May 1 May 11 May 20 May 21 May 22 May 27 .dr VVe are all kids again with a Yo-Yo on one hand and school books in the other. Coach Hoag had the surprise of his life when Ann King viciously attacked him and chased him madly up the street with a snow ball. It takes too much eFfort to walk down stairs and besides it wasn't fast enough, so A. C. Huntley just fell down. The "U" Club was the latest to form, but it is the peppiest in the country. Poor Ann nearly broke her neck trying to catch up to her Yo-Yo when it failed to return after a long visit at the end of the string. Coach Foag, the High School Pessimist, read seven "love" notes of Hi School students-Fat, Clare, Flub, and several others. We all believe the girls must feel thrilled? Spring time must be here because Miss Rouse saw a robin and Clare Conover heard Two Black Crows over the radio. VVho would have thought that Blub France would ever have nerve to kiss a girl, but seemingly he did for she wrote him a note and complimented him on their sweetness. All Fool's Day and Poverty Day. Any stranger would think that the business depression had it hard. lt has School closes for Easter vacation. Return to school after a short vacation. Back in the same old routine of study. Nothing special happened. What's all the excitement in Room 9? Oh, Donald Lord arrived at school on time. Some of the geometry students came in late and said that Miss Martin kept them overtime, Mr. Porter thinks it isn't right. Maybe it isn't, who knows? Someone was asked to explain the electronic Theory and the reply was "Up-and Atom." Some people are smart. No news, everything is dead. The chemistry class tried to gas the school. They almost succeeded. The after-affects were bad. Mr. Huntley got goosl-heartefl and dismissed school at three o'clock. That goes to show that all school teachers are not cruel. The teachers are giving tests. Report cards Friday. Rain, rain, nothing but rain. NVell, life is like that. Art Lyons expressed himself today by saying "lf Sherman thought war was Hell, he should have taken Geometry." Quite right. Instead of rain for today's weather menu, we had snow. Assembly and the fellows got their long-waited letters for Athletics. Report Cards also. Not so good. just another dreary day, but cheer up, the worst is yet to come. All the Anvil Staff is working hard getting the book ready for the printer. Only twenty more days of school for the Seniors. It is nearing the end, and are we rushed with work. Ask any Senior. The day before exams. All the Seniors are cramming and jamming, hoping that these are the last exams they will take. But there is no hope for some of us, for life is just one exam after another. Exams. Exams, Prom and Banquet tonight. XVill we celebrate? And howl Senior Commencement and we are through. Farewell High School, hello College. All the colleges had better open up their gates, for here we come. a i.. - ... . C at Eiga I I M 4' iitztli Student Council The Student Council was organized in February, 1931. It consists of one member from each of the four classes and one member from each of the following student organizations: Hi-Y Club, Girl Reserves, junior Hi-Y, and the Student Assembly. At stated times the Council meets with members of the Faculty for the purpose of discussing school problems.

We liked it lots and appreciate getting out the Whole first period to hear it. Who wouldn't? November 21-Thank goodness, programs have finally started in Assembly. Today was the first which was in charge of the R-Y Club. Harriet llrakeman, Vice-President of Student Assembly, made some announcements. Then the Pro- gram! Grace johnson, Vanya Root and Louise Morse proved they could make "harmony" and Alta jensen that she is "musically inclined." Edith Anderson and Marjorie Steves, both gave clever readings. December 1-'And if we don't get out another first period! This time to hear and see an illustrated lecture on the East by Mr. I.. j. Markham. Of course, there would be a sting to it somewhere! It cost ten pennies. December 12-More pictures in Assembly. Mr. Huntley gave and explained them. They were about early America and were very interesting. December 23-Well, today we enjoyed the Annual Christmas Program given by the juniors. The fish-pond was the grand climax. Each class had to give one stunt for the program and each one did it royally! January l6vWell--well-guess who walked into our assembly this morning? Robin Hood and his Merry Men and they were merry, too! January 30-Mr. Eaton talked on Prohibition today in Assembly. February 4'-The morning after the night before-when we beat North East. Every one felt great and the teams showed us that they could make speeches in assembly as well as they could play B. H. on the Hoor. February 6-We learned the "Value of Time" today in Chapel from Rev. Maitland. Some of us certainly need that lesson! February 13-Today, old ll. C. H. S. broadcasted again. The Hi-Y had charge and Art Lyons gave us some delicious recipes, and we heard a "he-oldl' tight when Chesley and Hinkson were having a few rounds! Oh-it seemed too good to be true-to have a real program-and especially to hear "That Famous Quartet." February 27-Our whole Assembly this morning consisted of music by the orchestra. March ll-Pep meeting for our victories over Millcreek-we should have a victory more often. March 20-Assembly was in charge of the "U" Association today.

Caflisclz Education Is Lzfe Those who consider the classroom as dull, who think of school in terms of theories and impractical problems, have lost the true meaning of education. Theories uro- perly conceived are guides to life. Edu- cation in its broadest sense, is a mirror of life and continues throughout the years. Rochester Business Institute takes every precaution to relate classroom theories to actual conditions in the business world. Students see real lite unfolding before them. They get a new vision, a new enthusiasm. Featuring Home Study Courses Accountancy - Stenography English Those who are unable to attend R. B.
