To the four teachers who have been at Union High School during the
past twenty-tive years, Mr. Keith Kennedy, Miss May Conlon, Miss Edith
V andenberg, and Mr. Henry Hornbeck, and to Union's first graduating class,
that of 1912, we dedicate this Aurora.
Under the direction of Miss Christine Keck, long a teacher at Union, the
class of 1912 published our first yearbook and so established the tradition of
an annual. lt was also this class, with the aid ot the other students who
were then attending Union, which gave to the school the statue oi Abraham
Lincoln that stands in our front hall.
Although in 1912 the teachers to Whom this Aurora is dedicated were
rather new to our school, they were already among Union's most loved
iaculty members. Today, after at least twenty-tive years ot service, they
hold an even higher place in the esteem of the students, for they are admired
not only for their high intellectual standards, the excellence of their instruction,
and the inspiration ot their personalities but also for their years of service
dedicated to guiding students to "the good lite" by means ot the light of their

Wealth, too, is ours: for our school gives freely of the books, instruction,
and practice that offer to each of us the infinite wealth of a trained mind,
a skilled hand, and a character and personality developed through partici-

Some students may find happiness in the satisfaction of achievement,
others in the joy of service, and still others in social activities, but all of us
find it abundantly in the good fellowship that each day brings.
New features of our '37 yearbook are the use ot photography on the
divisional pages, news-commentator style in our senior chronicle, cartoons
to brighten pages of copy, a page honoring faculty activities, and a senior

in the future to seek "the good life" and to find it.

il' Flash! Ancient tradition debunkedl 'Teach-
ers no longer stilted pedagogues, with their
chief business struggling to maintain a scholar-
ly atmosphere and to impress their dull or mis-
chievous underlings with a super-severe
dignity and the imrhinence of the old hickory
switch. Faculty and students have turned co-
workers striving for the -ideal of "the good life."
What more opportune place might be pro-'
vided for our co-searchings than a high school
such as ours where students and faculty work
side by side, developing projects like our
school newspaper and our student govem-
nient, l 1 4 p e
With the superior knowledge and deeper
understanding ' which life experience has
brought them, our teachers while they are
striving to present to us a concept of what
they believe to be "the good life" endeavor to
approach for themselves the ideal they set up
for us of a life rich in appreciation of all that
By pointing the way, our faculty inspire
us to enjoy the best in all the arts, to cultivate
satisfying hobbies, to'enter into civic enter-
prise, to feel em tenderness for good home life,
and to-appreciate the beauty of a radiant per-
sonality and a stalwart character. Together we
strive daily for a realization of "the good life."

Mr. Charles A. Everest, busy principal of Union, has a systematic method
of keeping the faculty informed of school activities and regulations. l-le
dictates bulletins to Miss Helen Olsen, office clerk, who sees that they are
mimeographed and distributed to the teachers. Miss Olsen does a great deal
of the routine work in the office and answers countless questions asked by
students and teachers.
As the adviser of the Student Council, Mr. Everest has helped that body
to effect many improvements in its parliamentary procedure. Two of his
brain children of l937 are: a plan which has brought a decided improvement
in the assemblies both in student conduct and in programs, and a plan which
assigns each student to a definite place Where he must be during the entire
Besides being principal of Union, Mr. Everest is a member of the govern-
ing board of the Kent County Humane Society and an ex-officio member of
the Michigan Educational Association.
Miss Blanche Mann, assistant principal, is a sympathetic listener. She
straightens out the troubles of over-burdened students and helps others to
discover their mistakes and correct them.
Miss Mann is doing a constructive piece of work by supervising the
N.Y.A. workers at Union. Members of the faculty notify Miss Mann about
any work they would like done and she assigns N.Y.A. students to do it. The
Service Squad, the traffic officers of the school, are also under her advisership,
Because she is the principal of Turner Elementary School, Miss Mann
is here only half-days, but those half-days are crowded with the tasks of
helping students as Well as faculty members to solve distressing problems.

September 14. 1936
After a summer of anticipation, last yearkz
juniors rush back for their Senior Year the
one year when they are iustified in Hlordina
it over" underclassrnen when studies, un-
beknown to teachers UI, take a back seat
while the seniors take a grand swing at
October 16. 17
The Senior Band displays its new uniforms
for the first time as it parades proudly
The Harvest Festival, a product of P. T. A
ingenuity, provides a night of entertainment
in the monotony of school life. The pie-
eating contest is the center of attraction for
many noteworthy but unfed seniorsl
"Boys and girls together." The scene
the senior roller-skating party. The boards
of the Coliseum creak and groan as many
a hapless seniar finds parts of his anatomy
colliding suddenly with unyielding surfaces.
Although our rivals won the annual Union-
South grid classic, the Turkey Strut goes on
per schedule. Even after the hard game the
boys are still able to "swing iff"
Appointment of those important :-seniors,
the top editors of the "Aurora," is announced,
Christmas vacation, that relief point sight-
ed many weelcs ago finally looms before
Unionites, a reality. Retail :selling classes
offer their star salesmen to the dime stores
Slippery-tongued amateurs reap neat little
sums to tuck in Christmas socks, while those
who lack the "gift of gab" are forced to take
what Santa gives 'em.
The Girls' U. Club stages an elaborate
"Frollies." Aisles bursting with Unionites plus
box office receipts give proof that the show
scores a !'hit."
"Doc" lifllingsons fighting Red Hawks
again show their supremacy by trouncing
all corners in city play to win the city cham-
pionship. The Hawks go on to cop the
'Tm headin' for the annual Round-up"
sing the West Side boosters. All active clubs
ioin hands in making this "nickel social"
pay for the bands uniforms and other pro-
jects the erstwhile public forgot when they
voted "yea" on the fifteen mill tax question.
Flash! All sabers barecl! Flash!
Dancers foresee a rip-roaring time when
they spot Frank Winegars orchestra, fortified
by sandbags and all set to shoot the works
at the Sabre Swing sponsored by the Bar
and Chevrons Club.
No wall-flowers at the lunior-Senior promg
the juniors kept every senior steppin' lively
till the clock struck twelve!
May 13, 14
"Smilin' Through," the wistful story that
has thrilled millions of Americans as a movie,
is presented as the senior class play of l937.
May 1 - Iune ll
"Theres something in the air!" Yes,
senior after senior is practicing his swan
song for the night of Iune ll, when the
swankiest of swan songs will issue forth in
one grand golden symphony.
Iune ll, 1937
The end of the trail! As we accept our
diplomas, the warm evening is cooled with
the knowledge that a complicated world is
before us. Wish us happy landings, Alma
Music by Carolyn Vander Sys
Words by Tressa De Vries. Barbara Olson
Let's sing once more of Union,
Unfurl her banner bright,
That we may keep in memory
Those colors - red and white.
Where'er our paths may lead us
We'll keep this thought in mind:
"We'll find a way or make one"
To help 'and guide mankind.
Farewell, dear Alma Mater,
Farewell, dear Union High!
The memories We have of thee
Shall never, never die.
Farewell to those we leave behind,
Our teachers, classmates - all -
Our wishes for their happiness
Resound through every hall.
l WE, the senior class of Union High
School, being of as sound mind and
judgment as can be expected, knowing
that our final day of existence is close
at hand, do create and fix our signa-
ture upon this our final will and testa-
ment on the first day of Iune in the
year of Our Lord nineteen-hundred
Our first and foremost request is in
regard to our tearless funeral. We do
hereby request that the Voice of Ex-
perience conduct the church services,
that the faculty mourn, that the basket-
ball men and Mr. Waters be pallbear-
ers, that the mixed chorus sing, "I'm
Heading for the Last Round-up," that
Mr. Hornbeck's car be used as the
hearse, and that flowers other than
pansies be omitted.
ITEM: To Principal Everest, the request
that habitual truants be com-
pelled to wear "I skip school"
ITEM: To the juniors, all our unpaid
bills: the vast amount of know-
ledge that we have left behind:
the well-carved seats in the
senior session rooms.
ITEM: To the faculty, the assurance
that no class can ever be as
clever as that of '37 and the
hope that the teachers can re-
tain their sense of humor after
ITEM: To the undergraduates, the
hope that each and every future
grad will receive a pension as
well as a diploma for intensive
labor exerted during the pre-
ceding thirteen years, kinder-
garten included: the idea that
they might go on a sit-down
strike if their mental capacity
cannot undergo the strain: the
privilege of using Union's time-
worn pencil sharpeners.
ITEM: To the future basketball men,
the expectation that they will
uphold the example set by the
team of 1937.
ITEM: To the future football men, the
task of scoring an annual vic-
tory over South.
ITEM: To all future stage managers,
the hole in the auditorium cur-

With three regulars returning at the beginning of the season, "Doc" Ellingson has produced another
city championship team, his third in tour years.
The team went through the entire season winning every city game and the city regional titles. Only
twice were the boys beaten until Muskegon defeated them in the State Tournament. The entire team made
the allfcity team, lack Newman, captain, making the all-state team.
All the regulars but Stanley Olszewski are graduating in Iune.

Although the second team does not rate as high as the varsity team in the public eye, it plays an im
portant role in the school, for members ot this team will make up the varsity team in following years.
Knowing that they have a chance to make the first team later on, the boys of the second team are
:ouraged to spend many hours in practice and training.
Because they lost only two games, the seconds won the city-championship in their class, thanks to
the able tutelage of Coach Russell Waters.

Sociability and the proper health
habits are the objectives of broncho-
ball, one of the numerous games
played by the junior high school boys.
An opportunity is offered to every
boy in the gymnasium classes to ac-
quaint himself with the fundamental
skills of tootball. The technique of
this great American game is illustrated
through class instruction.
A part of the regular class training
of every member of a boys' physical

All-city Meet . . Fifth Place
The ancient Greeks were the first
to do it, but Union still carries on with
good Greek spirit.
The boys who participate in track
go out because of their love for sports,
inasmuch as there is in this activity
very little of the glory attendant upon
other major sports.
The squad of 1937 was one of the
largest in the schools history, it was
also one of the strongest in the city. The
boys began the season by trouncing
Allegang next they defeated Creston by
a decisive margin. They continued to
hold their place in the ranks of the un-
defeated by going out and drubbing
a strong Ottawa team. The Union
squad suffered its first loss of the year
when it was defeated by Catholic Cen-
Union's hopes for honors in the city
meet dwindled when Iohn Michalak,
our star in the high and low hurdles
and broad jump, was unable to
participate in the events because of a
sprained ankle, and the final tally
dropped Union to fifth place.

wealth in little red schoolhouse!
To the astounded public, we explain that
we do not mean actual wealth in dollars and
cents. But don't be disappointed, there is
a valuable treasure in school waitin for any-
one who comes to seek it. This treiure is in
two forms comes the report, the 'wealth of
knowledge to be found in books and the wealth
of -skill to be found in a trained hand. The
former enables us to speak a foreign
languagewvith ease,'to, know all-the highlights
of American literature, to construct a geometric
figure correctly, to understand the basic prin-
ciples oi chemistry, to know what isf going on
behind the scenes of the nation's capital, cmd
to perform other feats equally amazing.
Who can estimate the wealth thatlies in
the abilityt to take 'a letter in shorthand, read
it back, and then type 'it accuratelypto make
our own clothes, to take a car apart and put
it together again, to build somethingout of
woodg to make a doorbell, to decorate that
livable little room?
Best of all, school offers us not only the
treasures of knowledge and skill but also gives
us' the wealth that lies in the experience of
carrying on the affairs of our little world now,
it-tit as we shall carry on .the affairs of the
big world later on. Students preside over large
and important organizations such as the Stu-
dent -Council, often organize classes, make
others want to work for a common cause, and
uphold the law, all valuable-practice in par-
ticipation. 2 .
This, my friends, is thelwealth that is hid-
den in the little red schoolhouse! i' A

Through the efforts of the Union High
Community Council, our band now has new
suits of red, white, and black. With the only
girl drum major in the city, the boys make
an attractive appearance.
The girls' glee club, led by Miss Best,
contributes much to assemblies and con-
certs. Their white uniforms trimmed with
red buttons show that they are loyal sup-
porters of Unions colors.
The peppy, rollicking songs the boys'
glee club sings make them popular at asf
semblies and other gatherings.
The mixed chorus, in which boys' and
girls' voices are blended, has participated
in concerts at school and has given pleasure
to the West Side Literary Club by appearing
on its programs.
