Our rateful hearts and thoughts to thee belong. Oh ljnion, we exalt thee to the sky. Thy light shall guide our paths through coming Thy royal banner ne'er shall cease to fly: Thy Lincoln-spirit will expel our fears: To thee we sing in honor, Union High! Cnonusz Dear Union High, thy name will always live. O Union High, our pledge of faith we give. Where'er we be, Where'er our footsteps roam Our Alma Mater e'er will be our home, O Union, we will cling to honest toil, From faithful service we will not recoil O Union, every heart cries "Loyalty!" Remain, dear Union High, our memory. Q Q CLASS MARCH 0 0 O Music by Bronislaus It-miak -Stephanie Farewell! farewell! dear Union High! Wherever we may stray Fond recollections of our school Will ever with us stay. Through the years thou'st led us on The star of truth to find. We'll follow still this lonely gleam That liberates mankind. Thus strivin with a loyal aim. Thy name, 8 Union High, Honored with e'erlasting fame Shall stand both far and nigh. Cnonusz Farewell to our Alma Mater, May she ever lead the line: Her colors e'er he lifted high Above the walls of time. Among the lists of honor We'll hear her name proclaimed: The name of our Alma Mater, The name of Union High. -Henry De Vries ac 42 an years Sierz NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY 49 e Q HE National Honor Society is the only national organization that has a chapter in Union High School. To become a member of this chapter is, there- fore, one of the outstanding honors of the school. The objectives of the National Honor society are scholarship, service, leadership, character. Candidates eligible must stand in the first third of their respective classes in scholarship. The other objectives may be explained as follows: 1. Service is interpreted as a willingness to render cheerfully and enthusiastically any service to the school. This service may be in school procedure or student government: in courtesy to visitors or in acting as big brothers or sisters to underclassmen: in offering oneself as a representative of class or school in competition. 2. Leadership is interpreted to mean demonstrating a high degree of initia- tive in classroom activities which will encourage higher scholarship in all: suc- cessfully holding committee chairmanships and other responsible positions: contributing ideas which may be of help in the life of the school. 3. Recognition for character may be gained by meeting individual obliga- tions promptly and completely: by actively helping to rid the school of bad influences: by constantly demonstralting honesty, reliability, promptness, achievement, and morality. Membership is limited to fifteen per cent of the senior class. The Union chapter this year has thirty-two members. Graduate membership numbers seventy-one. ' Officers for the first semester Were: President, Sarah Allen: vice-president. Oscar Matzat: secretax, Rose Favel. Present officers are: President, Iosephine Poggig vice-president, lice Korstange: secretary, Rose Flynn.

A series of hilarious situations kept the audience amused for two hours.

To the school in toto: 'We bequeath the benefit of our worthy and hard-earned accomplishments in social, academic, and other lines. and as good measure we add the secret of our success in extorting A's from a perverse faculty. To rising zoologist successors: 'We relegate the pleasure derived from mercilessly dissecting pickled grass- hoppers, fishes, or what have you. To Mrs. Elizabeth Slaght: 'We consign the job of teaching the boys who have chosen to follow the profession of that great exponent of the culinary art, Oscar of the Waldorf. to bake biscuits to eat-not to be used in the shot put. To the students of commercial law: 'We cede the privilege of arriving in class the first day with a remarl.ably original outline already in the latest stages of development. To the coming seniors: 'We intrust the prestige and honor of becoming the much privileged journal- ists who control and edit Union's two world-famous publications, The Union High News and The Aurora. ' 'We deliver Miss Grace Thomasma and Mr. Fred Voss, whose sagacious and soothing oratory calm tumultuous senior meetings. 'We request that the vast funds of the senior class be divided evenly between establishing a home for the feeble minded whose brains have "dimmed" during their school career, and a lunch room covering live acres where every' one will have elbow room and be served by waitresses whose extraordinary duty it is to remove the trays. We trust this mission will be faithfully car- ried out by the Class of '34. We do hereby. in the presence of the undersigned witnesses, declare this to be our last will and testament, on the seventeenth day of Iune in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-three. -The Senior Class BARON MUNCHAUSEN OLD MAN DEPRESSION or 47 mv CLASS CHRONICLE O O 0 FRESHMAN YEAR H929-I93Ol fBeginning ol Odicial Depression, Sept. 7.
