Do emperors, kings, queens, soldiers, scientists, all

We aspire to build a nation of white scrapers piercing hlueg
We aspire to build a nation like our fathers never lqneivg
We aspire to write World-brotherhood across the arching-sky,
God grant the aspirations, and may Union Write them high.

May we have light to show the wayg O, grant us might to stand

The Senior Play
EVENTH Heaven", a three-act drama, was presented by the senior class on May 27
and 28. The story takes place in the lower quarters of Paris, during the World War. The
plot concerns itself with the love story of Chico, a young sewer cleaner of the slums, and
Diane. Chico is an atheist and a cynic, embittered toward life. To protect Diane, an un-
fortunate girl for whom he cares nothing, he claims her to be his wife, and later falls in love
with her and marries her. The war comes between them and for four years they are separated.
However, Chico's love for Diane brings him back to her in spite of all obstacles, and she in
turn remains true to him. This changes his beliefs, so that he finally becomes convinced that
there is a "Bon Dieu".
A single cast was used for the boys' parts, and a double cast for the girls'. Diane was
excellently enacted by Irma Wiest and Ann Gryga, and the part of Chico was equally well
done by Edwin Jennings. Boul, the sympathetic, paternal taxi driver, was characterized by
Louis Fitzsimmons, and Maximilian Gobin, the street washer, was portrayed by Wilson Smith.
Brissac, an aristocratic elderly gentleman in love with Diane, was performed in a fine manner
by Franklin Du Bois. Virginia Wysell and Barbara Helfenbein played the part of Nana,
Diane's cruel sister, and Arlette, a friend of Diane, was enacted by Ann Kowaliszyn and
Veronie Koone. Bruce Fox played the role of Blonde, a lawyer, and Rein DeMeester played
Recan, an assistant of Brissac. Diane's sympathetic aunt was depicted by Evelyn Bale and
Bernice Karpovich, and the Puritanical uncle by Dale Stevens. Pere Chevillon, the priest,
was played by Robert Lindberg, Stanley Orowski did the part of the police sergeant and Wil-
liam Titus of the sewer-rat.
Included in the production staff were Mr. Stanley Albers, director, Jack Livingston, assist-
ant director, business managers, Ted Burgess and William Drulcerg stage manager, Louis
Fitzsimmons and assistant sta e mana er Charles Burtt. .

The Class Will
, the Senior Class of Union High School, of the great city of furniture and De Vaux
chariots, in the county of Kent, state of Michigan, being of sound mind and nervously aware
that our ship shall sail from this port ere many moons pass, with due consideration to the
present financial depression, hereby make our last will and testament.
To the "hard teachers" of those simple subjects like economics, commercial law, history,
and geometry, we leave the honor of raving to newcomers about our brilliancy.
To Miss Neuman and the lunchroom staff, we leave the worry and care of refueling the
vigorous youngsters with the proper calories.
To our great regret, we leave to the faculty only our deepest sympathy, which they will
need when they commence to tackle the class of 1932.
To the envy of all we leave to Mr. Albers the task which is so simple, enjoyable, and-
above all-so tranquil, the choosing of a cast for the senior play.
That convenient part of the hall between session rooms 225 and 228, we leave as a trysting
place for the junior Romeos. There they may gather and rattle oPf words of love to their
To the trailing and tail-end juniors, we leave the forty-minute rest period after school.
To the arguers of the future, we leave the smooth, non-skid tongues of our famed and
successful debaters, Jack Livingston and Bob Lindberg.
To the junior girls, we leave the privilege of being addressed by Miss Thomasma as
"my dear child".
To the junior boys who find it impossible to study elsewhere than in the library, we leave
the privilege of peeking into the girls' room at the studious maidens. To the girls who must
suffer the same predicament, vice versa.
To the members of the U nionite staff, we leave the honor of astounding the advisers with
actually brilliant material, always handed in on time.
To the typists of future U nionite and Aurora work, we leave the hair-raising mystery of
figuring out those hand-written articles.
To the 1931 football team we leave the honor of bouncing the "Muskies" into "Never,
To that organization, faintly suggestive of the northern get-your-man type, tfie Service
Squad, we leave the quick eye and commanding manner of our senior service squaders.
To our amazingly youthful successors, the Class of 32, who so strangely lack the maturity
characteristic of us as seniors, we leave with rather a little averseness and uncertainty the
Item: The right to expand their chests, raise their heads, and smile benignly at all
Item: Freedom of speech after senior meetings.
Item: The privilege of concentrating in session rooms 225 and 228 and of asking either
deep and thoughtful or perfectly inane questions of the ever dependable Miss Thomasma and
Item: Numerous headaches, crowsfeet, and gray hairs caused by worry about late
Item: The good luck to look dignified in their senior pictures.
Item: The right to look nonchalant when quaking freshmen stare.
Item: The right to present absence excuses of remarkable originality.
With blurry eye and unsteady hand we affix our hand and seal on this nineteenth day of
June, in the year of Our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty one.

CReserve Officers Training Corps
HE Reserve Officers Training Corps is conducted not with the sole idea of instructing
students in military training, but with the aim of teaching them those qualities which make
good citizens, namely: cleanliness, neatness, punctuality, truthfulness, courtesy, loyalty, team-
work, self-control, self confidence, physical fitness, alertness, respect for constituted authority,
line carriage, and leadership.
Training is under the supervision of a regular amiy ofiicer, Lieutenant Howell Harrell,
D. O. L., P. M. S. 86 T. Sergeant Henry McIntyre, U. S. Army, is his assistant. The
training is carried on, however, directly under the cadet officers, who are as follows: Captain
Herman W. Content, Lieutenants Stanley Orowski, Lester Middleton, Donald Flint, Edwin
Jennings, and Robert Lindberg.
An interesting new organization connected with the R. O. T. C. is the Bar and Chevron
Club, organized by Sgt. McIntyre. Membership in the club is compulsory for all officers and
non-cofnmissioned ofiicers. The Military Hop was sponsored by this club at Union February
14 and was highly successful.
The Annual Federal Inspection was made May ll by Colonel Wilvick, who praised
highly the conduct and appearance of the unit at Union. Herman W- Content, ,31

The club also successfully sponsored two sunlight dances this year to raise money to
carry on activities.
The social life of the club is varied and interesting. An All-Nations Party was held at
the Y. W. C. A. on November 14 and on March 3 a tea was given at Union, honoring the
Girl Reserve alumnae.

HE Unioniten, the school magazine, under the direction of Miss Myrtle Heseltine and
Miss Esther Eby, has seen another successful year draw to a close. Eleanor Lampert, as
editor-in-chief, and Leo Henry, as associate editor, contributed to the success of the magazine
by their wholehearted support.
Several new features were added to "The Unioniten this year. A step in the advancement
of modernistic art was accomplished by William Titus when he designed the cover of the
january number and the frontispiece of the November number. A talkie department estab-
lished this year proved interesting. Heime Berkowitz added a new feature by his continued
story, "The Back Number". A series of entertaining health articles was conducted by Anne
Each issue of "The Unionitev sought to reflect the atmosphere of the seasons. A clever
contrast was made between the january number, the "Grand Rushn, which depicted the mad
rush of modern life and the February issue. "Ye Olde Timer", a jaunt back to olden times.
This number contained several articles on life in foreign countries. The December issue, the
"Yule Logn, was interesting because of the dual meaning of the word "log',, first, as a log
burned in the hearth at Christmastide, and second, as a ship's record.
Due to financial difficulties caused by the general depression, the staff was unable to pro-
duce the April number, but a May issue was published jointly by the junior-senior staffs.
The business department consisted of Williani Westburg, business, Rein De Meester,
advertising, and Jack Mc Intyre, circulation. Blanfhe Cain in

The Latin Club
HE Latin Club of 1930-1931 has endeavored to maintain the interest which was inspired
by the Latin Club of the former year.
On October 28, 1930 a number of Latin students met with the adviser and organized the
club for the new year with the following ofhcers, who also carried over for the second semester:
President, Maud Stratton, ,333 vice-president, Maurine Coffee, '335 secretary, Ellsworth
Woolpert, '32g treasurer, Sulo Lagerros, 333g committee chairmen: Program, Maurine Coffeeg
boosters, Sarah Allen, '33.
Throughout the year regular meetings were held at which games were played and refresh-
ments served. Some of the program activities of the year were: a talk on the Yellowstone
Park by Quinten DeYoung, initiation of new membersg a dialogue in Latin by Sulo Lagerros,
and Henry Mioduchowslci, and instrumental music by active members.
This club and the Spanish Club jointly sponsored early in the fall an all-school party
which was so much enjoyed that the club planned a similar party for the spring term.
Arrangements were made for an illustrated lecture on Roman Art by Mrs. Mary Cook
Swartout, director of the Grand Rapids Art Gallery.
The Latin and Spanish Clubs are establishing a prize fund for high scholarship in foreign
language at Union High School.
Another aim of the club is to create and maintain a wholesome and friendly spirit toward
other nations by studying to understand the life and speech of other people than themselves,

in June, 1930: President, Margaret Simms, vice-president, Sidney Orking secretary, Frank
Jankowski, treasurers, William Westberg fhrst semesterj, Major Belkin fsecond semesterj.
Miss Ruth Carpenter acted as adviser for the club.
The year's activities were opened with a large party, the Black Cat Cutup, given October
17 in the Dillingham Memorial Gymnasium. The party, open to all the schools in the city,
was very successful.
A Christmas party for Spanish Club members only was given in the girls, gymnasium
December 16. It was a lovely affair with decorations in Spain's national colors. A stunt by
each of the Spanish classes added much enjoyment to the affair.
The year's social events were concluded with a party for spanish members and their
guests in the girls, gymnasium April 17.
A beautiful painting, "The Surrender of Bredav by Velazquez, was presented to the
school in january
Following a custom of the past few years, the Spanish Club held a tennis and a golf
tournament for members of the club. Philip Van Dyke was chairman of the tennis tourna-
ment, and Sidney 1-lodson of the golf tournament.
Numerous other activities were carried on by the club, such as contributing to the Welfare
Union, collecting clothes to help the needy and completing a scrap book which contained
interestin data concernin S anish affairs. .

Le Club Francais
E Club Francais was organized the first part of the year by students interested in French
and with Miss Ethel Scholes as adviser.
At the first meeting, the following officers were elected: President, Eugene Serdynslcyg
vice-president, Mildred Rogers, secretary, William Favel, and treasurer, Harriet jarmol.
Throughout the year several business meetings were held at which typically French games
were played and "chocolate et gateaux" enjoyed.
The objective of Le Club Francais is to create a feeling of friendliness and brotherliness
toward the French people and to familiarize students with French manners and customs. This
is accomplished more easily in smaller informal groups than in the class room.
The Alliance Francaise invited members of Le Club Francais to attend their meetings.
M. Arthur Bovee, Mme. Marguerite Clement, Prof. Morize and other prominent French
professors lectured at various intervals during the year. Although these lectures were some-
times difficult to understand, a feeling of achievement and exultation always went away with
the students who attended them.
Members of Le Club Francais presented a one-act farce, "L,Anglias Tel Qu'on Le Parlen,
by Tristan Bernard, at the senior assembly on Thursday afternoon, April 16. William Favel
played the part of a dapper Frenchman who elopes with a young English girl, Ann Kowalis-
zyn, who is pursued by her stiff English father, Ellsworth George. Eugene Serdynslcy, by pre-
tending to lcnow English and who really knows only French, gets himself and everyone else
into a terrible tangle. Gertude Kaminslci played the part of "The French madamen who is
anxious to please her English customers. Edwin Jennings and Raymond Jarvi took the parts
of police commissioners who add a final climax ro the play. Alex Tulos made a snappy
French garcon d'hotel. . . ,

CDer Deutsche Verein
ER Deutsche Vereinf' an organization composed of students who had taken or were
taking German, began its work early in the year with Miss Emma Zur Muehlen as faculty
The main objective of the club was to cultivate an interest in German customs, literature,
and art, and to promote friendship among its members.
Correspondence with students in Germany, a project in which the club assumed an active
part, proved interesting and educational, particularly in promoting friendly international
relations. Many letters were received every week from numerous German cities. An illustrated
scrapbook containing portions of the letters received was also made.
At the Nlodern Language assembly, given in April, Der Deutsche Verein was represented
by a short play, "Eine gefahrliche Kranlcheiru QA Dangerous Illnessy The club also spon-
sored an assembly in March. Mr. Alois Lang, a member of the well-known family who have
taken various parts in the Passion Play, gave an interesting talk.
The members of the German II class entertained the club at the annual Christmas party,
by giving a comedy "Die Wette" fthe Wagerj. Two Sunlite Dances sponsored by the club
were well attended.
The officers for the year were: President, Frank Meyers, vice-president, Helen Rings,
secretary-treasurer, Elsie Schmid, and program committee chairman, Charles Burtt. Frank
Meyers left the second semester, and Helen Rings acted as president the remaining time.

THE band had a very successful year under the able leadership of Mr. Theodore F. Fry-
fogle. It was made up principally of under classmen. This fact shows that Unionls younger
musicians are becoming proficient.
The music studied by the band consisted of marches, and light and standard overtures.
Some of the best marches were Colonel Bogey by Kenneth Alford, Chicago's World's Fair
Centennial Celebration 1933, by Carl Mader, and R. B. Hallls selection of marches. Some of
the other numbers were Bohemian Girl by Balfe, Light Cavalry, Pique Dame by F. Von
Suppe, Queen of the Night by Justin Elie, and Valse des Fleurs by P. Tschailcowslcy.
The band played at all the football games, usually parading at the half or maneuvering
with the visiting band.
A small band made up of members of the senior band under the leadership of Robert
Lindberg played for all the junior and senior assemblies and the mass meetings. It also
played for all the basketball games held at Union.
The new policy of giving a letter in a special music award assembly to band men who had
been in the band for two years or longer was adopted. Members of the band were also given
special honor points toward the gold key.
The instrumentation of the band was as follows: two flutes, E Hat clarinet, ten B flat
clarinets, three french horns, three altoes, five saxaphones, fourteen trumpets, four trombones,
three baritones, four basses, three snare drums and bass drum.

HE Union High orchestra had a successful year under the skillful leadership of its di-
rector, Mr. T. F. Fryfogle, who has been director of the orchestra for the past Hve years.
The orchestra consisted principally of senior high students, but also included junior high
school students who had shown special ability. Rehearsals were held five days a week, one
hour each day. School credit for this work is one hour for two hours of orchestra.
The orchestra rendered a delightful program at the Midwinter Festival of Music held in
january under the supervision of the music department.
Many members of the orchestra were representatives in the Symphonia Society which
consists of picked members of the various high schools in the city. The director of the
Symphonia Society this year was Mr. T. F. Fryfogle.
The string quartette, consisting of two violins, viola, and cello and composed of members
of the senior orchestra, played for various clubs and socials, where chamber music was needed.
The program rendered by the string quartette in the Midwinter Festival of Music consisted
of Finale fQuartette 721 by Hayden, and Angel Gabriel QO1d Plantation Songj by Alfred
Pachon. The members of the string quartette were Frank Marczinski, first violin, Wilson
Smith, second violin, Carl Lindberg, viola, and Henry Marczinski, cello.

The Girls' Glee Club
THE beginning of the school year found many new members joining the Girls' Glee Club.
It met the seventh hour each day, under the supervision of Miss Florence C. Best. The en-
rollment during the second semester was not so large as during the first, as the class was held
at an inopportune time.
The first five or ten minutes of each class period was spent doing breathing exercises, and
also exercises for bettering the tone quality.
Much time at the beginning of the semester was spent preparing for the Mid-Winter
Festival which was held in the school auditorium January 13. The Girls' Glee Club presented
the following numbers: "The Prince Came a-Wooingu by Merikanto, "Good Night" a
Czecko-Slovakian folk song, and "Psalm 150B by Cesare Franck.
The Glee Club entertained at assemblies and also at the West Side Ladies' Literary Club.
During the second semester the Glee Club worked on modern numbers, several of which
are, "The Oriental Song" by Nicholas Rimsky-Korsakoff, "The Last Night" by joseph W.
Clokey and "Children of the Moon" by Elinor Remick Warren. These numbers were also
given by the girls as their share of the program in the May Musicale.
Various double trios were formed to work on the number "Lift Thine Eyes" from Elijah,
by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. This was the contest number which was used in the inter-
high music contest, held in the early spring at Central I-ligh.
During the first semester the girls wore uniforms of black jumpers and white blouses.
During the second semester clever white sport frocks were used.

fBoys' Glee Club
ARLY rising is the motto of the Boys' Glee Club. Singing is the best way to start a
perfect day, its members say, and is also a real incentive to a feeling of warm friendship.
Under the supervision of Miss Florence Best the boys create a wonderful atmosphere for
music. The club meets every school day except Friday at 7:40 a. rn. The first of the hour's
work is devoted to breathing and tuning-up exercises for the bettering of tone quality and for
volume. The rest of the hour is spent in practicing songs which are to be used in concerts.
The purpose of the organization is to provide an opportunity for fellows musically inclined
to express themselves in ensemble singing.
The group sang at the Ladies' Literary club, the school assemblies, the mid-winter concert,
and the spring festival where they received many praises due to the splendid cooperation of
The organization is divided into four parts, first tenor, second tenor, baritone, and bass.
Some of their favorite songs are "Alma Nlateru, a college song, "Vive L'Amour',, a French
college song, "Concordi Laititia", an old Latin hymn, "Holy Mother Sings", arranged by
McKinney, 'iprayer of Thanksgivingn, an old Netherlands hymn, and 'KOld King Cole",
variations from the nursery rhyme by Cecil Forsyth.
The Boys' Glee Club furnished several members of the mixed quartets which were formed
to take part in the all-city contest. Jane Jelsma acted as accompanist for the Glee Club.

The Mixed Chorus
HE Mixed Chorus is proving more popular each year. This year the membership of the
chorus numbered 70 the first semester, and 90 the second. Since many of these students had
formerly been under Miss Best's able direction and training, they produced work of excellent
quality. jane jelsma, a former accompanist for Miss Coye in her work at Harrison junior
High, acted as pianist for the group.
The January Mid-Winter Festival of Music gave the group an opportunity to display
its ability. "Morning', by Speaks, and a negro spiritual "Soon I'm Goin' Home" by Lester
were the selections used in this concert. These numbers were repeated in the junior and
senior assemblies a few days following.
The chorus was asked to sing at a Sunday evening service at the All Souls Universalist
Church. In fulfilling this request, it sang a collection of modern Russian numbers a cappella.
During the second semester the students devoted most of their time to preparing numbers
written by some of the modern composers, several of which are Felix Borowski, W. Otto
Miessner, and Harvey Gaul. It was the plan of the group to achieve the honor of having
one of these men at the spring concert when these numbers were presented.
The Mixed Chorus has been largely composed of seniors this year, but it is hoped that
the group of next year will be as promising as it is at present.

Union High Safety Club
HE Union High Safety club was the first of its kind to be organized by any senior high
school in Grand Rapids. Membership is granted to all high school students interested in
public safety. The purpose of the club is to cooperate with the City Safety Council in re-
ducing the number of accidents. The motto is "Safetyze and Keep Aliven.
Practical problems have been undertaken by the members, for example, a set of traffic
laws was written for consideration of the City Council, and safety slogans and posters made
for school exhibition.
Special social gatherings gave opportunities for outside speakers to emphasize the need

HE Audubon Club was organized March ll, 1926. The purpose of this club, which meets
every two weeks, is to study birds and nature and also to cultivate friendliness among the
girls through social activities.
Miss Elizabeth Crotser acts as adviser of the group. The officers for the first semester
were: President, Beatrice Burakowskig vice-president, Bernice Buczynskig secretary, Martha
Haraburdag treasurer, Irma Frickg program chairman, Bernice Malinowski. The officers elected
in January were: President, Gertrude Leiviskag vice-president, Theodora Gutowskig secretary,
Wanda B. Jurewiczg treasurer, Lorraine Baltes, program chairman, Margaret Peot.
The club joined the National Audubon Society of New York, each member receiving a
button showing membership in this organization. Each girl also received bird leaflets from the
National Audubon Society. Every year the club subscribes to the "Bird Lore" which is placed
in the library for the use of the school.
This year the girls earned money which was used to buy milk for children and to pay for
their lunches in the lunchroom. At Thanksgiving donations were sent to families in need.
During the year the Auduboners enjoyed wienie roasts, potlucks, a Christmas dinner, a
skating party, a bunco party and hikes on which bird studies were made.
Miss Nelle Curtis of the museum addressed the club at a joint meeting of the Fauna
Flora Club and the Science Club in February. She used colored slides to illustrate her
interesting talk on India. Get a, L . .k ,31

The Nature Club
HE Nature Club is a combination of two clubs, namely, the Fauna Flora Club, an organi-
zation for girls, and the Science Club, an organization of boys. Mr. Clayton Bazuin is
adviser for both.
The Fauna Flora Club was organized for the study of animal and plant life. Reports on
these subjects given by members at the meetings aid the club in carrying out its purpose.
In February, Miss Nelle Curtis of the Museum, addressed a joint meeting of the Science
Club and the Audubon Club. She illustrated her talk on India with colored slides.
In March, through the courtesy of Rason BL Dows, Furriers, the members were able to see
the workshop of the fur organization. A potluck supper preceded the trip.
The officers elected for the first semester were: President, Ella Wright, vice-president,
Margaret Simms, secretary, Alyce Kobg treasurer, Marian Timmers. Those elected for the
last semester were: President, Eleanor Lampert, vice-president, Vera Lewis, secretary, Inez
Grinnell, treasurer, Marie Honholt.
The Science Clubis purpose is to extend the knowledge of its members in natural and
physical sciences. Reports on these studies are given at each meeting. Mr. Frank Dumond
of the Museum gave an illustrated lecture for the Science and Fauna Flora clubs. His
address was on thc giant redwoods of California, the sequoias.
During Christmas vacation the club had a ski-hike and a theater party. A final get-together
was held at Lake Michigan.
The officers elected for the year were: President, Herbert Masalkowski, vice-president,

English Art Club
HE English Art Club was organized to acquaint the younger generation with the past and
present artists and their achievements. This work opens the minds of the members and
enables them to look at a painting from the artist's point of view. During the year, from
October to une the club studied the modern artists and their aintin s and various collec-
. , P g ,
tions that were exhibited at the art gallery.
Two meetings a month were held. Once a month the club met at the art gallery, where
Mrs. Swarthout talked on the current exhibition. Among these exhibitions were the paintings
and sculptures of contemporary Hungarian artists, the work of modern South American
artists, and Tibetan banners made by monks of Tibet. The paintings on exhibit by Mr.
Homer Gordon Davisson were thoroughly discussed as was the collection of fans loaned
by Mrs. Dudley Waters, representing the art of widely separated countries. Meetings at
school were held at which Miss Bettes showed and explained slides of the Middle Ages and
of the noted cathedrals of France.
The ofhcers for the year were as follows: President, Bernice Malinowski, vice-president,
Eleanor Lampertg secretary, Maurine Coffee, treasurer, Bernice Miller.
The outstanding social events of the year were a potluck, two dinners, including a
Christmas dinner, and a Sunlite Dance.
In general the purpose of the club as connected with the work in English is to make clearer
the many references literature contains to different features of art, to different artists, and
to the elements of beauty which are universal in art expression.

4 NION High School enjoyed an unusually successful year in debating. The school team
was composed of John Livingston, Robert Lindberg, and Richard Braun. They reached a
height in state debating never before attained by a Union team. The question for debate
provided by the State League was "Resolved: That National Chain Grocery Stores operating
in the State of Michigan are detrimental to the people of the state."
The trio went through the preliminaries with three unanimous and a two-to-one decision,
thereby gaining 15 out of a possible 16 points. This placed Union in the eliminaticn series
with 64 other schools in the state. Each one is to receive a bronze wall plaque from the
Detroit Free Press in acknowledgement of its achievements.
In the elimination series Unionis first victory was over South with a two-to-one decision.
The team then travelled to Grandville to win a second victory, this time a unanimous one.
Because of the illness of a member of the Grand Rapids Catholic team, they forfeited the
debate to Union. At the next debate Union entertained Paw Paw with a result of a unan-
imous decision in favor of the Unionites. The fifth debate was with Traverse City. Although
the contest was close, the Union team won a unanimous victory.
As this article goes to press, the debators are preparing to participate in the state cham-
pionship debate to be held at Ann Arbor on May 1.
In the declamatory contest Union was represented by Frank Kowraclc who placed second
in a field of eight contestants.
John Livingston represented Union in the extemporaneous speaking contest held on
Much of the success of the speech department was directly due to the untiring efforts of

THE Junior Hi-Y was organized a year ago for boys in the seventh, eighth, and ninth
grades. The club officers are elected each semester by direct vote of all members. Meetings
are held every Thursday morning in room 242 at 8:00 A. M. Meetings for which a speaker
is engaged are alternated with business meetings. Citizenship and character are the subjects
of the talks given, for the Hi-Y purpose is "to create, maintain, and extend throughout the
school and community high standards of Christian character." The club's problems are dis-
cussed at the business meetings, and new members are initiated. Occasionally the members
are invited to a swim at the Y. M. C. A.
When the treasury permits, the club sends delegates to the state and county Older Boys'
Conferences. Reports are given by the delegates when they return from the conference.
The club has two advisers: Reuben S. Smith, session room and history teacher, and
Bob Augustine, Y. M. C. A. representative. Donald Stoll, 134
Camp Fire Girls
THE ideals of Camp Fire are expressed in the Law of the Fire, which is
Seek beauty Pursue knowledge Glorify work
Give service Hold on to health Be happy
Union has four Camp Fire groups, two of them having been organized this year. The
officers of Otyokwa, Miss Helen Ellis,s group are Jean Criner, president, Grace Brooks, vice-
president, Josephine Samrick, secretary, and Florence Sibilski, treasurer. The officers of
Kicitanda, Mrs. Otis Dilleyis group are Hermine Lindemulder, president, Janet Westerveldt,
secretary, and Frances Hooper, treasurer.
Takima, Mrs. John Anderson,s group, has been active for three years. Five of its members
attended Camp Keewano-Wohelo last summer. This group won second honors in the city
for its Needlework Guild garments. Its officers are Barbara Harrigan, president, Treva
Andersen, vice president, Mildred Hansser, treasurer, and Ruby Johnson, secretary.
The oldest group at Union is Cafllawawo organized by Miss Lois Richards, five years ago.
For four years Miss Florence Parsell has been guardian of this group. Its officers are Helen
Campbell, president, Joyce Wilson, vice-president, Virginia Wisner, secretary, and Marjorie
Hills, treasurer. Cafilawawo won first honors in the city for its Needlework Guild garments
this year. Mae Randall won a week at Camp Keewano-Wohelo for the best birthday count
book in the city. Dorothy Rau won a chest of silver in the national competition in table
A. A. Society
UNE of the lively clubs of Union High School is call the Double A Society, A. A. stand-
ing for Aid Animals. Election of officers takes place twice a year, so that many of its mem-
bers may act in executive positions. The meetings are held every two weeks after school. This
club is a part of the State Humane Society and its purpose is to encourage kindness to animals
and also to help the needy. Its members showed the sincerity of their purpose by sending
Christmas dinners to several unfortunate families. During the year the club held several
banquets, at which instructive talks were given, a skating party, and two wienie roasts.
In every way this has been a prohtable year. The success of this organization was due to
the untiring loyalty of its members, officers, and adviser, Miss Elizabeth Perrin. The officers
for the second semester were: President, Melba McHoskeyg vice-president, Raymond Bush,
secretary, Lucille Lindemang treasurer, Tauno Koskig adviser, Miss Perrin.

HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT
Eight hundred and four students were enrolled in the department this year. The Foods I and
II classes gave teas for mothers and teachers, and for Miss MacRae and Miss Demmon. The Foods
II classes prepared and served luncheons to committees of faculty members. The profits of several
cake sales went toward the welfare work of the department.
A lighted display case on the third floor regularly exhibits quality work done by the foods and
clothing classes at Union.
About 125 students participated in health department work offered by Miss Perrin and Mr.
Hornbeck in their physiology and hygiene-sanitation classes this year. In the study of environment
students of sanitation visited the Grand Rapids Sewage Reduction Plant, the Grand Rapids Creamery,
and the Filtration Plant.
The physiology classes proved by experiment on rats that an excessive amount of candy is a
detriment to growth and development. Two pairs of rats were given an equal number of calories,
one pair being fed calories of sugar and the other a more balanced diet of milk, whole wheat and
flour. At the end of six weeks the rats themselves told the story.
The laboratories are well equipped with incubators, sterilizers, properly heated and ventilated
rooms, and laboratory slides.
Five of the 27 students in the sight conservation department this year will graduate from
Union. Eleanore Crandall has the second highest standing in the senior class, and William Favel
the sixth. Miss Edith Culver, who came the second semester, is now one of the three instructors
of this group.
Miss Bettes's English V class presented two plays, "Frau Werte of the Ready Tongue," by
William Favel, '51, and "William Gibney's Fortune," by Louis Lobensky, '30, before the English
division of the Western State Teachers Association.
So many young people in high school have expressed a desire to take up aviation as a vocation
after they have finished school that it has been felt that a course dealing with the subject was
needed. With this in mind an attempt has been made to give the student a clear picture of the
possibilities in the field, not only the present possibilities but the future as well. By painting a
picture of aviation as it is and not as modern fiction shows it, the school steers out of aviation
those people who are interested only in the romantic side. Those who are actually interested in the
highly technical science of flying find the course offered at Union very similar to the ground school
course offered by the United States Army. This course gives all of the theory needed for a pilot's
license and leaves only the actual fiying training to be gotten outside.
Aviation I covers the following subjects: aerodynamics, theory of flight, history of aviation, air-
plane motors foperation, care, maintenance and constructionj, types of airplanes.
Aviation II covers airplane materials, airplane rigging, air commerce regulation, navigation.
meteorology fa study of weather conditionsj.
Part of the time is devoted to a discussion of current happenings and new ideas that are being
tried out at the present time. The equipment available is limited to some obsolete parts furnished by
the Army Air Service.
ART GALLERY AWARD
Through the hearty co-operation of students Union was awarded a picture valued at 3150 as
result of a contest, sponsored by Homer G. Davisson, whereby the school sending the greatest
number of representatives to the art gallery during his exhibition in February would receive a
picture worth 3100. Of a grand total of 2,322 visitors at the gallery, Union won the contest with
1659 votes, so instead of the promised picture the school was presented with a 35150 painting,
"Pasturelands." The picture hangs in the school library.
ART CONTEST WINNERS
Two Union students, Peter Daswick and Herbert Masalkoski, and an alumnus, Albert Margelis,
won prizes in the national Scholastic contest this year. Peter Daswick submitted an oil painting
entitled "Ours," for which he won the first prize of 35100 in the pictorial contest. Herbert Masal-
koski won third prize in soap sculpture. Albert Margelis did a water-color sketch for which he was
given a special award.
ESSAY AND POETRY CONTEST
William Titus, '31, won first place in the essay contest and first, second, and third places in the
poetry contest this year. William Favel, '31, placed second in the essay contestg Eleanore Crandall,
'31, third, Bernice Karpovich, '31, fourth.

TEN letter men responded to Coach Hess' call for regular track practice: Capt. Paul
Redman, quarter-mile, Frank Cook and Ed Tuma, weights, john Zakrzewski and Eddie
Piechocki, sprints, Ed Rinkevich, hurdles, Raulin Gillette and Louis Lobensky, half-mile,
Ed Yerman and Clarence Vroegendewey, high-jump. Scores of others also reported for
In addition to these veterans the following won their major letters: Alex Yurgaitis,
hurdles, Bill Druker and Red Polmanteer, mile, Charles Burtt, quarter-mile, Stan Orowski
and Clayton Penny, half-mile, Freddie Vanderlinde, broad jump, and Marvin Oldenburg
and Harry Koning, weights.
Union had another good team this year with ten veteran lettermen. Those who returned
were Oldenburg, Koning, Tuma, Yurgaitis, Vanderlinde, Penney, Burtt, Polmanteer, Zakrzew-
ski, and Piechocki. "Teed" Symko, a letterman in 1928, was back in school and eligible for
the meets. Teed is a sprint man and broad jumper. He also throws the weights. Frank Cook,
city champion shot-putter, the last two years, was not in school so could not compete for
Union this spring.
John Zakrzewski, two year city sprint champion, was elected captain of the 1931 team.
The 1930 track team was the best which ever represented Union High School as shown
by the number of school records that it made. John Zakrzewski broke the record for the
220 yard dash and tied the century mark, Frank Cook broke the shot-put record, Rinkevich
the high hurdle mark, Polmanteer was supreme in the mile, Gillette burned the cinders in
record breaking time in the half-mile, Vroegendewey leaped to far greater heights in the
high-jump, the relay team smashed the former record and also the city mark, and Redman
established a new mark in the quarter-mile.
The team trimmed Muskegon, Holland, and Tech by decisive scores, placed men in the
University of Michigan Indoor and Outdoor Invitational meets, placed well among the
leaders in the Western State Teachers' relays, placed second to South by a scant three points
in the City Regional Meet, after winning seven Hrst places, placed men in the State Track Meet,
and won the Indian relays. In the Muskegon and Holland meets, Union took nearly every
first place. Zakrzewski, Yerman, and Rinkevich were high point men. The reserve material
took the measure of Tech. Coach Hess kept ten of his best performers out of this meet, be-
cause of the Western State Teacheris College Relays the next afternoon. In the Western
State Relays, Frank Cook took second in the shot-put, Rinkevich took second in the high
hurdles, the two-mile relay team, Lobensky, Orowski, Penny and Gillette took third, and the
medley relay team, Yerman, Burt, Zakrzewski, and Polmanteer took second. In the Michigan
Indoor Invitational Meet, Polmanteer took first in the mile and in the Outdoor Meet Frank
Cook took first in the shot. In the city meet those winning first places were Zakrzewski, 100
and 220 yard dashes, Cook, shot-put, Gillette, half-mile, Polmanteer, mile, Rinkevich, low
hurdles, and the half-mile relay team, Yerman, Piechocki, Rinkevich, and Zakrzewski.
In the state meet Frank Cook took second in the shot and the half-mile relay team tied
for third and fourth.
The team left behind four trophies, now on display in the trophy case, as a result of its
work. Three of these were won by the half-mile relay team and the other one by the two-mile
relay team. Ed Rinkcvicb, 131
THE football season finished late this year and the basketball season began early. Coach
"Doc" Ellingson faced the difficult problem of rounding a team into shape in one week to
meet the well drilled Lowell basketeers. However, the return of four veterans and I1 generous
supply of good new material started Union toward a successful season.
Captain-elect Alex Yurgaitis, Frank Cook, Ed Tuma and Al Barts headed the list of re-
turning lettermen, while among the newcomers were numbered Paul De Praam, Ernie johnson,
Charles Tarbell, and George Bookholder.
The newly named Red Hawks stepped into their first game the under dog but emerged
after a hard-fought barrle on the big end of the score which was Union, 21, Lowell, 19.
In the next game the Union quintet met with Technical. The boys from Tech gave
Union an unlocked-for scare by nearly upsetting the dope. Union came back in the last half
to win 13 to 10.
Catholic Central sent its basketball team over the next week-end and returned home
defeated by the Union five 12 to 28.
Kalamazoo Central dashed down the next night to hand Union its first defeat of the
year in a fast game to the tune of 19 to 13.
Ottawa Hills was the next victim of Union's fast clicking five. The Indians were turned
back by a count of 17 to 14.
On December 26 the lads all traveled to Tulip Town to meet the Holland quint on its
home fioor. In a tight battle, with the lead changing hands with every basket, Union was
defeated, the score being Holland 165 Union 15.
Port Huron traveled to Union on January 3 and turned back the Red Hawks 29 to 15.
In a thrilling game, at the South gym, the Trojans sank a field goal with less than thirty
seconds to play to give Union its first defeat in the city race. The score was South 115
The fast Gold and White quint was stopped by Union in a fast game 14 to 11. At
this point the Union team received a severe setback as one of the numbers was declared
a professional and as a result Union was forced to forfeit all its wins. Instead of a standing
with four wins and one loss, Union now had no wins and five losses in the city title race.
In the next game, in spite of its setback, Union took Creston into camp by an 18 to
With the second semester Union acquired the services of Scoby and Symko who starred
in the Ottawa game to win for Union the most exciting and thrilling game the Red and White
played all season. The game was almost a duplication of the Ottawa game a year earlier,
inasmuch as two overtime periods were required to decide the tussle.
Union next traveled to the Cougar's gym where they handed out a 31 to 13 defeat to
Catholic Central. South terminated Union's winning streak by turning the West Siders away
in a tight defensive battle by a score of 17 to 12. Central was the next team to line up before
the Union quint. The game was dull and slow, ending in Centralls favor by a score of 15
to 11. Tech was played on its own fioor and was swamped in a lop-sided battle, Union 325
Tech 21. Creston matched its team against the Union cagers only to be turned back by a
score of 27 to 20.
The last game of the season proved one of the most surprising. The Union team held
the Muskies scoreless the first quarter on the Muskegon fioor, held them to a 21 to 2 score
at the half, and defeated the Big Reds 34 to 17.
In the Regional tournament held at Burton Junior High School, Union cleared away the
smoke to find it had defeated the Muskegon Heights quint in the first round 31 to 11. In
the final match Union met the crack Grand Haven five, state champions, and lost 14 to 26.

Varsity Football 1930
UNION High School has enjoyed one of the most successful gridiron seasons since the
memorable year of 1925. Similar to the record of that championship team, our goal was
crossed only once throughout the entire season. Out of nine games played eight were won
and one tied. No setbacks can be counted against this year's eleven.
In spite of the fact that all games had to be forfeited because of the ineligibility of
Frank Cook, in actual playing Union can be credited with having rightfully won the victories.
This year Union had a balanced team whose victories came through the hard playing of every
member of the team. In analyzing this year's team one can truly say that Union was repre-
sented by one of the best teams in the state of Michigan. Much credit for this year's success
is due to Coach Hess for his untiring attempt to bring to Union a city and state champion-
ship. Captain Ted Burgess, all-state guard, also deserves merit for his able leadership of
this year's team.
The Hessmen started the season on September 26 with Shelby High School as its op-
ponent and trampled over the inexperienced Shelby team by a 63 to 0 score.
The Trojans from Traverse City were next on the program and were forced to submit to
a 20 to 0 defeat.
The Polar Bears offered the west siders plenty of opposition in their annual encounter
the following week, but a fighting Union team emerged victorious by a 14 to 0 score.
The Red and White warriors had not forgotten the heart-breaking tie with Tech last year
so they vowed not to shave unless they could avenge last year's blot by piling up more than
thirty points. That night our boys shaved, for they trampled over Tech by a 34-0 score.
Union met Catholic after a week layoff and, before this engagement was over, piled up
a 20 to 0 count.
The Big Reds of Muskegon could not stem the Red and White tide as it swept over the
Redmond crew by a 14 to 7 score. This marks the second defeat Muskegon has suffered in
the hands of Union in two years, and also the second time that a Muskegon team was de-
feated on its home field. That defeat was in 1922 and also by Union.
Ottawa Hills tried hard, but our boys, still remembering the stinging tie with the Indians
last year, romped over the Palmer eleven by a 12 to 0 score.
Union met its oldest city rival, Central High School, and in semi-darkness defeated the
Hilltoppers by a 20 to 0 score.
On Thanksgiving day Union renewed its relationship with South High School but played
under such miserable playing conditions that neither team could make any headway, the game
ending in a deadlock, thereby putting both teams in a tie for the city title.

.HIS year's Varsity Club has maintained its purpose of stimulating friendliness among
the athletes of the school, and has also established a bond of good friendship with the other
varsity clubs in the city. The club is composed of only those having earned a major letter
in either football, basketball or track. All other sports are considered minor.
Meetings are held every other week, with Mr. Voss and Coaches Ellingson and I-less
acting as advisers. Because of practice work after school these meetings take place in
The club with the cooperation of Principal Everest and the athletic association arranged
for the first homecoming day game in the history of the school on Thanksgiving day when
Union played South High School. As this new project proved rather successful, the club
hopes to carry the plan out every year. The evening of the game the members sponsored the
Turkey Strut, one of the highlights of the school parties.
The Varsity Club won the city basketball championship in a tournament that brought
together all of the varsity club teams of the city, and thereby brought the little brown jug
to Union this year.
The officers who served the varsity club for a term of one year were as follows: President,
Edward Rinkevichg vice president, Alex Yurgaitisg secretary, Raulin Gillette Qiirst semesterjg

OLP, one of the most popular minor sports at Union, has brought out representatives
who have always been more than ordinarily successful in the local tournament.
During the past three years our golf teams have annexed three city championships, three
regional championships and have placed second twice at the state tournament at Ypsilanti.
In 1929 Union had the honor of having the captain of its team, Peter Zegunis, win the
individual high school amateur title of the state. During the same year Union placed second
in the Western Michigan tournament at Pontaluna Beach, Muskegon.
The golf team of 1930, led by Ben Bartniclc, a sophomore, lost only three matches, and
these to one school, out of the thirty-two games played. The 1930 veterans who returned
were Ben Bartniclc, Bill Gernis, Frank Palezewslci, Joe Stroclcis and Sidney I-lodson, only one
member being lost by graduation. Several new, able, golfers also tried out for the team
Last year, through the courtesy of the Highlands, Cascade, Masonic and Gracewil Clubs,
Union's matches were played on these courses.
Present and former stars of Union featured in the City Tournament at I-lighlands last
summer were Pete Zegunis, ,29, who lost in the semi-finals and Ben Bartniclc, who bowed in
defeat to John Berglin, former U. of M. golf team captain, only after a close twenty

TENNIS is one of the minor sports in which Union has always ha a Seam which well
represented the school. The prospect for the season looked as promising as In the past with
four lettermen returning from last year's team and a number of new fellows out for the squad.
The schedule of city games each year takes place during April and May. A team consists
of six players who play according to their ranking. There are also two doubles teams from
each school. Union's home courts are at John Ball Park.
Aside from playing the regular city school schedule, the team represented Union in the
State Regional Meet from which the winners in both singles and doubles competed in the
state meet. This state meet determines the state high school champions in singles and doubles.
The faculty adviser and coach for the season of 1931 was Mr. Jones, who planned ex-
tcnsive training and practice for the team lsefore rhe season opened.
Scores were not yet determined when "The Aurora" went to press.

HE reserve football squad had a very successful season last fall, and, with its exceptional
material, brought to Union a city reserve football championship. Out of nine games played
the reserve team won 6, lost 2, and tied l. One of the high spots of last year's schedule was
the victory over the strong Greenville first team by a 6 to 0 score.
Coach Ellingson, like Coach Hess, deserves much credit for his team,s success. He too
spent much of his time after school in preparing these boys for the first team. Last fall Coach
Ellingson had some unusual material to worlc with, but the majority of these big boys were
novices and needed much development and instructions on the game. Such boys as Capt.
Tarty, Wysocki, Vanderlinde and Roman should undoubtedly aid the first team baclcs next
fall, while Szczepanialc and King should help boost the linemen's material. Others who
rendered their services to the reserve team last fall are Mangus, Ellsworth, and Kelly.

ITH just one member of last season's squad returning, Coach Hess faced quite a
difficult problem in building up a reliable second team.
The "seconds" turned out to be a "scrappy', and hard-working bunch and were soon
playing some line basketball. Coach Hess deserves much credit for his work with these
As the purpose of a second team is to build up material for varsity teams in the future,
the squad was picked largely of freshmen and sophomores.
Most of the games were played with the following line-up: Patt and McCarthy, forwardsg
McHoskey, centerg Zindel and Wysocki, guards. A1 Zegunis and "Russ" Olenylc, forwardsg
"Les" Nograd and Sterling King, centers, and George Rinkevich, guard, saw quite a bit of
service in their respective postions.
With a few more years of competition before them, these boys ought to develop into fine
basketball players. Some of them will be advanced to the Hrst squad next year.
The whole squad is returning next year and Coach Hess is looking forward to a good

BECAUSE of the too large classes of previous years, a new program was devised so that
more girls could take swimming at the Y. The year was divided into three parts. The first
part was devoted entirely to beginners, the second to intermediates, and the third to the
advanced swimmers. Miss Marian Osborne, swimming coach, found some promising material
in these large classes.
The fundamentals of swimming were taught to the beginners, good form, speed, and en-
durance were stressed in the intermediate class, and diving, in the advanced class. This oppor-
tunity to learn how to swim and dive according to the best methods is welcomed and
appreciated by all the girls interested in swimming.
To bring the year to a successful close, a Splash Party was held on March 20. All girls
in the swimming classes were invited. Supper was served in the cafeteria after the sport in
the pool. Everyone, regardless of her class during the year, had a good time.
Pearl Werslund, ,31
THIS fall soccer was substituted for hockey. The Girls, U Club, with the aid of Miss
Margaret Mac Donald, coach of this new sport, planned practice games and contests among
the senior high girls. '
Sarah Allen was elected manager for the sophomores, Margaret Simms for the juniors,
and Pearl Wesslund for the seniors. Veronie Koone captained the seniors, Dena Hoogerhyde
the juniors, and Sarah Allen the sophomores.
The teams were very evenly matched, each winning one game and losing one, giving each
class 150 points toward the meet. petal Wesjlundj '31
The Witches Gambol
THE Witches Gambol has become an annual event at Union. It is an all-girls' party
which is sponsored every fall in October by the Girls, "U" Club. The party is usually open to
all girls of the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades, but this year the junior high girls were
invited. Everyone came in costumes which varied from "tramps" to ballet dancers.
This year's Gambol was given October 22 in the Dillingham Memorial gymnasium.
Lillian Richardson was general chairman. Her committee was composed of the following
girls: Evelyn Bale, refreshments, Pearl Wesslund, decorations, Bernice Klumpp, games and
entertainment, Maryverne Porter, invitations, Barbara Helfenbein, publicity.
Each class put on a stunt. A magnificent painted tin-cup was presented to the class giving
the best stunt. This year's cup was won by the seniors. The chairmen for the stunts were
Lillian Richardson, seniors, Lena Romani, juniors, Sarah Allen, sophomores.

BY an 18-8 score over the sophs Friday, March 13, the juniors became basketball champs
of the year. The seniors won the second team championship.
The schedule and results for the year were as follows: juniors vs seniors, 15-7, juniors
vs. sophs, 18-8, sophs vs. seniors, 9-8.
All teams showed fine playing and good sportsmanship. The junior team did some out-
standing team work and deservingly won the championship.
The following persons were members of the victorious squad: Jennie Borkowski, Lena
Romani, and Margaret Simms, forwards, Helen Juntenan, and Isabelle Haggerty, side centers,
Maryverne Porter, jump center, Dena Hoogerhyde, and Florence Panzer, guards.

physical training instructor.
The following officers were elected for the term: President, Marian Timmersg vice presi-
dent, Sarah Allen, secretary, Berniece Klumpp, and treasurer, Margaret Simms.
The aims of the club are Q11 to create a desire for an interest in those sports and activ-
ities, the pursuit of which adds to health and physical efficiency, Q25 to promote a spirit of
good fellowship among girls at Union, Q31 to help each girl work for a numeral, letter,
and all-city honor.
The one thousand points which a girl makes to win her numeral is the foundation for
the much prized HU" for which two thousand points are required. A girl must have won
both her numeral and her A'U', before she can win her highest athletic award, the all-city
honor. To win this award a girl must have won three thousand points and she must he a
The big social function of the year, the Icicle Slide, was the first all girls' "bid,' party
ever attempted at Union. For this event the gymnasium was elaborately decorated.
Two joint mixers were given in the girls' gym by the T. D. S. Club and the C1. U. C.
These proved to be unusually successful. Bemiece Klumpp, ,31
