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.

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

We are still looking forward to many happy times in our Senior year, such as the junior-Senior Banquet and the

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:
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.
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
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.
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.

Worthe Smith wills and bequeaths his spelling ability to Mavis Baker.
Helen Wandel wills and bequeaths her thinness to Alma Post.
Arthur Forbes wills and bequeaths his ability to court Freshmen to Pete Connell.
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.
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.

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
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
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'
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
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-
The next scene was the one in which Worthe Smith, the dancing teacher, was giving
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
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."

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.

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.

Sophomore Class History
We, the Class of '33, set sail on our second yearly voyage on the sea of knowledge
with a clear sky, calm, steady sea, and good aims. 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.

Freshman Class History
The Freshman Class of 1930-31 landed at the airport Commencement via airship, and, after a short
rest during the summer began our non-stop flight through High School. 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.
One of our first stops was at a corn roast held at Robert Smith s home. fVVe especially enjoyed the
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.
We are proud of the Freshman Class of Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-one and hope to be worthy
students of the Union City High School and to make you proud of us, too, before we finish our flight

THE CHAIR INDUSTRY
Sixty years ago in 1871 Dr. O. I.. 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
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.

BOYS' GLEE CLUB n
liarly in the Fall of 1930 a squad of boys was organized into a Glee Club under the
direction of Miss Martin. 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
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
The main event of the year was the Operetta "Robin Hood," which was a huge suc-
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

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
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.

The Hi-Y Club started off this year with eleven members, and since that time its membership has in-
creased to seventeen to which more will be added before the year is over.
The meetings are held weekly at the High School or at some meniber's home. They are given over
to the business of the Club and to discussion which are sometimes lead by outside people.
The following are some of the main activities carried on by the Hi-Y Club. At Thanksgiving time the
club members conducted a campaign for the benefit of the needy people in town. Twenty-two well-filled
baskets were providel for the less fortunate and contained provisions for several days' needs. .
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.
The Hi-Y Club serves a very good purpose to those who are sincere in the club principles, and it is
hoped that the results ol the organization will be far reaching.

liarly in the year we held a meeting and elected our officers. As our President,
Martha Lockwood: Vice-President, Elaine Chapmang Secretary, Ruth Shepard, Treasurer,
Marjorie Chapin, Program Committee Chairman, Vanya Root, Social Committee Chairman,
We held several parties which turned out quite successfully. A get-together party
was sponsored by the Hi-Y Boys and the R-Y Girls, to which a large crowd turned out.
Our meetings consist of four ditlerent kinds: The service meeting in which we do
some work to aid a worthy cause: the business meetings are called to settle the business
on hand, in our discussion meetings we bring any topic or question we should care to have
brought up, the social meetings are made up of parties, sleigh rides, hikes, etc.
To Miss Fuller, our advisor, we owe the success of the past year and wish to extend
our hearty thanks for all that she has done for us.
May the coming year be as happy for our Club as this has been.

SEPTEMBER 20-MEADVILLE WINS-26-0
Our first game of the season was with Meadville. 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
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
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-
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' GIRLS ' BASKETBALL
LincolnvillesDecember 19, 1930:
W'e lost! VVere we disappointed? The one thing we live for is when they come here. Score 11-12.
Alumni-December 23, 1930:
We won! Playing against most of our team of last year proved to be lots of fun. 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,
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
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
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.

December 18-FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON
The team traveled to Lincolnville for its first game of the season, and the lads surely put one over on
us by winning with a score of 28-20. 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
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.

The operetta presented this year was HRobin Hood Incorporated," a delightful bit
of twelfth century romance. 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

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
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.

The Patsy, a comedy in three acts by Barry Conners, was presented by the Senior
Class on November seventh and eighth at the Presbyterian Parish House.
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
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.

Whe re Was I?
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
"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
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
"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."

"What person of you, working hard for once, if he lose his Yo-yo doth not leave his studies

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.

and her classmates together saying, 'Rejoice with me for I have found the piece which I

Then said the principal in assembly, "It is impossible but that offences will come,

Night was painting pictures
On a canvas silver gray:
He sketched in houses, trees and hills
But Dawn called him away.
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.

The path I have chosen lies
Straight and broad before me
Until it reaches that curtain

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
To nothing or--to everything?

I would go to the field
When the grass is wet
And kneel in the grass,

When it rains.
Sweet flowers hold water in their cups
The moist warm earth-smell
Holds a promise of life,

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?

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.
The pale moon light
And tire that sings,
Over head the rush of wingsg
The geese are passing in southward flight,
Away from the gloom of winter's night.
jud and Mary went a strollin'
Down along the creekg
Jud asked lVlary what she saw in
Bill and Tom and Dick.
"Off, l've wondered," replied Mary,
" 'Bout that question, too,
But more often have I pondered
What folks saw in you!"
PLAY THE GAME
It seems as though the most of men
Depend upon their wives
To do most everything for them
Nearly all their lives.
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.
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.

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. From the short time of its existence the organization has proved
its worth in creating the proper attitude concerning school conduct and co-operation. The duties of the Council
are purely advisory. The Superintendent and Principal are ex-ofhcio members of the Council.
The officers are:
