E. Weeks EDITORIAL This, as the first issue of the Fledgling, begins what we hope will be a permanent publication of Union College. As this is our first attempt at an Annual, we realize that many improvements could be made but we hope our friends will overlook all mistakes and in the future years make Annuals of which Union College will be doubly proud. However, this marks the end of a busy and. for the most part, happy year. The prospects for the future of Union College are optimistic. The College department, especially, is flourishing. Athletics have been the best this year in the history of the school. We can only hope to see Union College come to the front as one of the foremost schools of the State. As we, the Seniors, leave this place our memories linger in fond remem- brances over all the hard work we have done and the jolly good times we ' ve had, as well as the trials we ' ve undergone, — the lot of all Seniors. It is with feelings of real regret that we send forth the Fledgling in its trial flight, knowing that this is our last gift as Seniors to the school. The Fledgling flieth forth! Long live the Fledgling!

As Freshmen this class consisted of eight members two of whom have completed the course and are members of the class of ' 20. Dowis and Nelle have been at U. C. since the days of their early school life. They have fought a good fight and are finishing their course now being ready to be graduated. This unique Freshman Class had one consolation. they were never verdant for this was the first time in many years that a College Course was offered in U. C. and this class has stood at the top in college thruout its career. Before the year was over two of its members de- cided to seek their fortunes elsewhere and before long were engulfed in the sea of matrimony. The Sophomore year there came from Somerset a modest, retiring, little girl, Anna, who has been in th« class ever since and who is the star member of ' 20. Phil was called from our midst to enter service and fight for his country. Pauline came to U. C. and was with the class for one year, going to Glen Eden, N, Y. and grad- uating from Junior College the next year. When they were Juniors two of the members left the Class of ' 20. spurred by their ambitions, and chose similar paths. Thomas went back to his Alma Mater. Ashbury College, to get his degree and Petty finished in three years receiving his Bachelor ' s degree, which he lost in three days. But the three girls weren ' t to be left alone for Guyn. the parson, also had ambitions and de- sired to enter this class and make college in three years so they welcomed him and the class was as it is today. This, the present Class of 1920, is a distinguished class as it is the first real college class to graduate from U. C. for many yenrs with the exception of the one the year before. We therefore have felt our importance from September down to May. We have had the honor of starting the publication of a College Annual, the Acade.ny Seniors working together with us, and we hope that it may be a permanent feature hereafter. We are leaving our dear old U. C. with fondest hopes for her success as well as for our o-.-n. COLLEGE SENIOR CLASS MARY DOWIS SAMPSON. A. P..

COLLEGE SOPHOMORE CLASS i ■ i uj ! ! ! ! 1 r i F » ! ■ t 1 ! 1 • -= » , I ill! 1 Altho the quantity of the Sophomore Class is lacking the quality is right there. There are only three of us. but we are none the less prominent. One is a musician, one a preacher and the other a noteworthy postmaster. When the Student Volunteer Convention met at Des Moines, Iowa. U. C. sent our preacher as a delegate. We are a loyal class and love U. C. One of our number decided to see some of the world and went all the way to Georgetown. However he could not forget us. or feel at home without us, so one day Bill came back. He has nob,ly joined us in our upward climb and we hope he will not stray away again until we have finished our College Course. We are too small to make much noise but we are steadily going on hop- ing to be noticed and appreciated sometime! COLLEGE FRESHMAN CLASS TMfinaSL President — Tlielmu V. Moreheid Secretary and Treasurer — Horace M Barker " College Freshies " we are but not green or insigni- ficant, for we have adopted the " Sophs " and Juniors, thus standing next to the Seniors in power. We are nineteen, strong and full of " pep. " Our class has several good orators and to sit in class and hear them soar to heights sublime would charm the heart of a lizard. We are well represented in Athletics. We have two men on first Basket Ball Team and the star Base Ball player of the " sunny South " is a member of ' 23. Our cIlss had the honor of having selected from among them one of the three delegates who were sent to the Student Volunteer Convention at Des Moines, Iowa. Every member of our class has been active in the up- building of the Adelphian Literary Society. On January 16 we gave the dignified Seniors a banquH that will be a lasting memory to both classes. Should we keep our number, and our ambition, we shall have a large grad- uating class and we shall wear our caps and gowns with much dignity the last term of ' 23. ACADEMY SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Good-bye Academy! We have been in Union seventy-five years. We added it up and we know. Some ot us toddled here as little folks — now we toddle away. Members have come and members have gone, but as a Class, pep and spirit has been our portion. We have been the goat many a time but have butted our way thru. " Ye bruises and scraps, farewell! " Other classes have entertained us in classic style. We doff our mortar boards and say " Thank you! " Faculty and fellow students undoubtedly agree that we are the Bojsheviki per se of the school. — High class Bolsheviki. we say. But seriously, our ambitions are many and of the highest order. We feel that life is just opening be- fore us and we go ever forward to the best. Adelante!

Weeks 1918 — Ancient When we first came on U. C. campus we were a jolly band that surely did coincide with the grass in color; later, when we started to study Botany, we found that Freshmen weren ' t the only green things on the campus. Our present to the College for our Freshman year was a Liberty Bond. Among our class we have several athletes. We have no stars yet, but be patient and next year you will see us as leaders in all work. The boys of our class did give an all star scene from " Treasure Island. " 1919 — Medieval Sophomores — A lively bunch and climbing higher. We are a little more used to the ways of the world and V. C. Academy, in particular. — a little less green, you might say. In the way of achievement and progress we have bought another Liberty Bond, presented the Court Room scene from the Merchant of Venice and waged a mighty war on Bad English! We steadfastly believe in good times, and behold! we entertain our four great basket ball " stars, " Ruby, Leonore. Burke and Blain. But, alas! Good times are over; exams, commence- ment and the curtain falls on this important epoch in our lives. 1 930 — Modern At last we hold the proud and happy position of Juniors and upper class men; but many and heavy are the duties which fall upon us! We have to edit the College Notes, entertain the dignified Seniors and boss every Junior Job that comes along. We have reason to be truly proud of our class. Every member has devel- oped some talent and we now have the star athletes, musicians, orators and journalists. We have further shown our dramatic ability by giving a scene from Silas Martier and a Spanish Program during which nobody could tell whether we made any mistakes or not. Well — this has been the best year so far and we all say " Hurrah for Union and the Class of ' 21! " Class Motto — Excelsior! Class Colors — Red and White Class Flower — Red Rose Class Yell — Higher! Higher! Higher! Yes! Who are we? Can ' t you guess? Juniors! Juniors! Yes! Yes! ACADEMY JUNIOR CLASS ACADEMY SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY President James F. Blair Secretary Lave Morris Treasurers The Reverend Clarence Fisk The Reverend W. G. Butler The Reverend Bryant Cox Chapter I — The Class of ' 22 entered High School September 17th, 1918, with 37 members, but on account of the epi- demic of influenza, school closed for six weeks and sev- eral of our number did not return. But after all, we had a rousing good class and were ever ready to help in all the school activities. Being Freshies, we got many slams, but we kept pressing on. Chapter II — The Class of ' 22 entered school September 16th. 1919, with a band of 26 Sophomores. We decided to start out the year by putting on an English Contest. This was a great success. We have several musician.; in our class and we are well represented in the orches- tra. We expect as Juniors and Seniors to make the Class of ' 22 the best that ever went out from Old Union. ACADEMY SOPHOMORE CLASS ACADEMY FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY Awe-stricken, wild-eyed and frightened, the Class of 923 filed into the dread institution, namely Union College, i the fall of 1919. Altho an exceptional group of lfants in every way, especially in brilliancy, they did not scape the disgraceful name of " Freshman " which, they r ere told, has befallen every newly arrived group here-to- Dre. Even tho the appellation seemed so unjust this in- ocent tribe accepted it without a murmur. These brilliant Freshmen soon contracted the dread isease — thirst for knowledge. They were especially sus- sptible to the disease because they had been informed lat the greenest kind of " hill-billies " could in Union ollege be reformed into fairly respectable men and wo- len. So they uncomplainingly took up the burden of lgebra. English and other unconquerable things includ- lg Latin, the Freshman Jonah. They held their first class meeting in September nd elected class officers as follows: President, Jack ray; Vice-President, Mildred Burroughs; Secretary, Anna laud Sampson; Treasurer. Anna Mae Smith. At a sec- nd class meeting they decided to get all possible pleasure ut of school life in spite of the difficulties in their athwjy. Their adventurous spirits sought expression in a icnic, which proved to be a complete success, as they ad expected, except that before they arrived at the end f their muddy journey they rlmost decided that bath- ing suits would have been more appropriate for the occa- sion. As they had not correctly estimated the amount that can disappear down twenty hungry throats, the marsh- mallows were gone entirely too soon. Even then they pro- nounced it a glorious time and expect to try it over in the near future. In another series of meetings they de- cided upon pennants and colors — purple and grey. They all went away Christmas and returned feel- ing as tho several of the corners had been rubbed off and that they had lost their fear of their surroundings in Old U. C. They found themselves confronted with several new classmates whom they welcomed cordially and immediately started the process of breaking them in to U. C. ' s daily life. This treatment the newcomers accepted with due meekness. In the first class meeting of the winter term they elected officers thus: — President. Rebecca Sawyer; Vice-President, Jeff Hammons; Secre- ary, Lillie Smith; Treasurer. Marlin Goddard. Shortly after this they received a great surprise. It was that they had passed in Winter Term Exams. However, only those who passed had this surprise. During the entire time they have lost and gained several members. Now they are all very happy as they are preparing to enter the seemingly far off and wonder- ful realm of Sophomores. ACADEMY FRESHMAN CLASS NORMAL CLASS HISTORY Class Motto: — " Jog On. " Colors, Black and White Our class is very different from all the others. It is by tar the largest class in school. But this is not the most striking difference. Practically all the members are new ones every year. This is because they have been so successful in passing the Examinations for Certificates and have gone out to join the great Army of Teachers in our Public Schools. For the past two years not a single one of us has failed in the Examinations, and we are striving to keep up this splendid record and to lift higher the Banner of Education in Old Kentucky. To Professor Humfleet, for his interest In us, and his untiring efforts in our behalf, we desire to express our sincere appreciation. To our Class and Union College we express our loyalty and devotion.

BOYS ' BASKET BALL TEAM BOYS ' BASKET BALL It was during the year ' 17- ' 18 that i ' ulon reached the height In basket ball that she could schedule games with the larger colleges. Among these was Center, the champion. After many hard workouts, Center was to meet us here on our floor. She came and was defeated 20 to 0. Winning this victory put real pep into our boys. Several other big games were also won. The team was: — Overly and Burke, forwards; Steele, center; Franklin, and Franklin, guards. Now we come to the year ' 1S- ' 19. This year the team was back, with the exception of one man — Steele. Tho Steele, our center, was gone we have Barker and Blair to replace him. By this time Union was playinp real basket ball. Owing to the good management of this season, our schedule was practically full. Among the largest of the games was the defeating of the University of Tennessee — 53 to 35. This brings us to the year ' 19- ' 20, or the past season. Union began by putting out some first class basket ball. Ever since the beginning the team has gradually been climbing up, botli in s length and morale. This year she had almost reached the top round, and would have before the season had passed, but alas! No such luck. On account of some bad luck, the team was shaken a little. Still this did not affect the team work very much. They forged ahetd und won more games than they lost. Anyway, we are all proud of our team. Ever since Union has b3en playing basket ball. she has been compelled to play in a very unsanitary and also unsatisfactory place. A place that one coul.1 not expect a visiting team to play in more than once; an 1 in most cases, it has been as wo expected. But now! All that is past. There is being constructed here on the campus one of the best gymnasiums in the State. A gym that is up-to-date in every way. With this new gym and the old team back again, we aie expec:ins some very fine basket ball games during the coining b.sket ball season.

M. Humfleet ORCHESTRA The orchestra of Union College was organized early in 1919 under the able direction of Miss Campbell. At least half the members were beginners, but they worked hard, and with the loyal support of those who could play, the orchestra was ready to appear creditably in several Commencement programs. In September they reorganized with much splendid new talent and with Professor Ahler as conductor. Rehearsals thruout the year have been replete with steady hard work and real enthusiasm and results that warranted a trip abroad into the nearby musical world — the lirst event of its kind in the history of the school. March 27th will be a Red Letter Day to the members of the Orchestra for then it Second Violins: — First Violins: — Marion Adams Dowis Sampson Abigail Weeks Flora Burroughs Anna Mae Smith Harold Parker Piano: — Miss Ross Ellen Can- Catherine Richardson D.

The Orchestra selec- tions made an attractive setting for the special numbers on the program: violifi and vocil solos by Marion Adams, vocal solo by Collie Franklin, readings by Miss Hawkins and several brilliant selections by the Cumberland Valley Saxaphone Quartette. The unqualified success of this Recital was due to the faithful work of the members of the Orchestra but more especially to the patient and in- spiring leadership of their gifted conductor, Professor Charles E. Ahler. It is expected that the orchestra will become a permanent organization in Union.

There was much interest in this society but the membership dwindled until only a few were left to hold it together. The next three years the Society flourished. Union College had some splendid talent and it was used to make the organization a success, and a success it was. Practi- cally every one in the school was a member. During the present year it has had a fight for existence. It was reorganized under the name of the Adelphian Literary Society and wijl be a permanent organization. A literary society is a help to any school and gives scope for the development of the best in a student body. We hope that the Adelphian Literary Society will grow in num- bers, power and influence. There was organized in May, 1919, a Union College Academy Alumni Association. Officers were elected as follows: — President. - - Robert Faulkner. Vice-President — Ruth Decker Golden. Corresponding Secretary — Dowis Sampson. Recording Secretary -- Nelle Jones. Treasurer — Nelle Jones. There were about thirty charter members and a membership drive was put on. It is hoped that each class as it graduates will become a member unanimously COLLEGE GIRLS ' SOCIETY President — [damae Smith Vice-President — Marjorie Brown Secretary — Thelinu Morehead The college girls in Speed Hall organized what is known as the " C. G. S. " November 18th, 1919. There were len members taken in on that date. This included each college girl of Speed Hall. The trysting place was selected in room 304 and dedicated " C. G. S. Room. " It has been the ambition of this society to do something really worth while. The girls started toward this noble goal by giving a feast one Saturday night after lights were out. Serious objections to the commo- tion caused a reconsideration and the next event of im- portance was a Thanksgiving Social given for all. We think it was the most enjoyable entertainment that had been given in Speed Hall for a long time. But our ideals steadily rose higher and we finally did do something worth while. When the delegates were sent to the Des Moines Student Volunteer Convention the C. G. S. prom- ised $15.00 and sewed night and day in order to make the money with which to pay their quota. The girls of this society are all active Christian girls and a prayer meeting in the society room is not uncommon. They are a bunch of lively, cheery, loyal girls.

We have cause to paint a picture. Scenes of childhood days that do not last. This picture speaks of by-gone days. Of games and sports and pleasure scenes; Of class rooms, teachers, school mates dear, A thought most solemn and sincere. The time is swiftly passing by. Our days in number fewer grow. But on memory ' s wall the picture hangs, And about it lingers a lasting glow. Where ' er we roam o ' er hill or plain. We shall glance backward with respect For dear old days at U. C. And hope our duty we ' ll ne ' er forget. THE NEW YORK STORE SHERMAN CAWN, Proprietors BARBOURVILLE, KY.
