VULUME XXXIII l 9 4 4 UN ION HIGH SCll00L GRAND lmvms, MICHIGAN W 1 ' s , 'T Table of Contents Introduction 4 Features 7 Faculty l5 Classes 27 ilrganizations 59 Sports 69 fx Foreword Conforming with the times but progressing toward the future, the American boys and girls of today are awakening to the advantages of living in a democ- racy. Their school activities, classes, sports, teachers and friends have shown this gener- ation "what we're fighting for" in the bitter struggle about us. The pace may have been swift during the past years, but, des- pite the turmoil, the tasks of the school semesters were not left unaccomplished. In each ven- ture we have acquired human understanding along with coop- eration, fun, excitement, and knowledge never to be for- gotten. As you scan through this Aurora we hope to show you how the Democracy of Union lligh School, though functioning on a small scale, teaches youth to think clearly and build a sound foundation to combat the evils of intolerance and greed. edication MISS MARY MAC LENNAN To Miss Mary Maclaennan, chairman of the mathematics department at Union High School, the Aurora Staff of 194114 sincerely dedicates this yearbook. An ardent worker in thc mathematics department, she has inspired many a student to study mathematics. Her love for this particular field and its develop- ments is shown in her teachings. Her interest in every individual and her willingness to help a troubled student during her own valuable time has influ- enced many a wavering student back to studying with a new determination. This year in cooperation with the war effort she taught a class of boys in Algebra IV, preparing them for the services which they will render for their country. The commendable qualities of patriotism and cooperation complementing her superb teaching abilities make her the beloved teacher that she is. t t I if ,...s..

For seven successive years, Miss MacDonald, girls' gym teacher, has presented the Frollies, and has heen in charge of the matinee performance. This year the two evening performances were sponsored by the Community Council with Miss Geraldine Masters acting as chairman.

To the savage heat of Harry James or the mellow strains of Glenn Miller, jitterhugs cut loose during the noon-hour on Wednes- day and Friday in the girl's gym. The dancing, sponsored hy the Victory Council, with George Kurijan in charge, did much to relieve the routine of study on these two days. A three-cent charge was used to purchase the latest records and other noon- hour equipment. i.'E'iSf5.iZ ll!

Supported by funds from the local social agencies, the new recrea- tion eenter located in tl1e Manufacturers Building is for all senior high students. Cleo Vandermolen and Louise Vandenberg represent Union on the board. Licking the sugar off their mouths has become a favorite pastime for those who buy the delicious doughnuts that are sold after school. The sales are sponsored by various clubs as a means for raising money to carry out their activities. These after-school sales 'chit the spotw and are appreciated by students and teachers alike. For the first time at Union, students may have a share in the care of the library. Assisting Miss Gus- tafson, librarian, are seventeen tenth, eleventh, and CLUB Collin twelfth grade students, who check hooks, mount pic- Vfmdcn Berg, Vu-Hier Mulen, Memenlh:-len Van OOSIBHQ tures, and keep the shelves in order. With Dorothy Wolfson, Reiner. Orlh Simmons as president, the club has helped to make the library a pleasant place for study. X1 v-0' aww H 'N - ' xx Q ,xnxx 'X'-" '-9' 0 . 'YY' .

The plan set up by Mr. Everest provided for the assignment of every student to a personal counsellor. This plan gave untold help to many students in planning their life work and adjusting their present problems.

This class taught by Mr. lNlarousek was not only interesting hut most informative, as were the many other classes in the department, which is headed hy Miss May Conlon. Miss llunn and Mr. Liskey specialized in the junior high school suhjeets while Miss Zur Muehlen., Mr. Henry, and Miss Masters devoted their talents to senior high school students, all truly presenting in our history classes the American ideals and heritage for which we are Hghting.

Every Monday was devoted to lessons in a spelling tablet, and the rest of the week to grammar, composition, and literature. New composition books with much personal guid- ance, both practical and lively, added stimulus to the English course of study. Preparation of senior students for college English was featured in a class under Miss Thomasmais supervision. Miss Perschbacher, in her English literature class, taught senior students to understand and appreciate the ideals and life of the English people through their writings. ln addition to her regular English subjects, Miss Heseltine instructed two classes in journalism in the art of feature writing, par- ticularly for the yearbook. Two new classes under the guidance of Miss Smallidge and Miss Laible were organized to give special help to students having unusual difficulties with English. l Mr. Meyering and the Misses Quinlan, Thomas, Laible, Allen, and Scholes, as usual, laid many a firm foundation in their students, mind as to the effective use of English and the fun to be found in good reading. A committee made a study of possible new literature books for tenth- and eleventh-grade general English classes.

Students found that although Latin is a "dead languagen, in that it is no longer spoken in any country, it is a foundation for many other languages. Spanish, another foreign language in the curriculum, proved interesting not only because of the fine teacher, Miss Carpenter, but also because of the interesting projects carried on by the class. The advanced Spanish students not only translated their plays but enacted their lessons in the form of a play. In the public speaking department the forceful expression of good English was of first importance. The pupils who developed the most under Mr. Alber,s tutelage in his speech classes took part in an inter-school speech contest, while the best students in the debate class held positions on the' successful debating team which won a regional honor for excellence in this field. In addition to teaching public speaking, Mr. Albers also 'P directed the senior play. Miss Grace Thomasma successfully sponsored American Education Week, Book Week, and the yearly Vocational Institute for senior high students. Mrs. Alice Peckham, former librarian, spent a day giving many classes lively reviews of new books. LEFT MISS ETHEI.

The belief of many that science is the key to the post-War World was shown by the greatly increased number of persons who took the various courses offered at Union. The large number of both boys and girls taking physics alone required four classes to accommodate them. The science department also offered courses in general science and biology. Physiology and hygiene were taught by Mr. Smelker, newcomer to the faculty thistyear. 4 B y7UlN ' reparin ilitar ath- en S Mxny MM: LENNAN Mis 1 wuss NELLE ATWUOD Mathematics was advanced at Union this past year by the introduction of two new subjects. Refresher math, one of the several new subjects added to the curriculum for the benefit of the senior boys, helped them to review the basic principles of mathematics and thus prepare for their future in the armed services of our country. Algebra IV was another course offered to those desiring advanced work in this field of study. The increased interest in mathematics was not only indicated by the new courses but also by the increased enrollment in classes. All those interested in specializing in this field found an adequate schedule of subjects, capably taught. If21 MR.

They are now aiding the war effort by helping at the day nurseries at nearby schools. Food and material shortages are also problems which they are learning to overcome. ln foods classes this year the girls were taught to make meals requiring few points but possessing sufficient vitamins. They also learned how to market, how to get the best for their dollars. From new or used material girls proved that they were really handy with a needle and thread. According to records, they are speeding up production, making twice as many articles as before. lnteresting subjects studied by the personal regimen class were personal grooming, boy- girl relations, and getting the most for the money. Mrs. Margaret Alderman, dietitian, had charge of the school cafeteria. MISS INA DENNIS MISS MARJORIE FIELDNER MISS MAUDE TRAUT MRS. MARGARET ALDERMANN, MRS.

The line work done by the student printers was proved by the school advertising material which they printed as one of their projects. To fill wartime vacancies in the printers' shops, a new course on the fundamentals of printing and type-setting was offered to girls, who responded with an overflowing class. The electric classes, which have grown larger, have been following an outline of study instituted by the government to prepare the boys as electricians when they enter the services. The other shops, among which are woodworking, machine shop, sheetmetal, auto shop, and mechanical drawing have prepared many boys for specialized work both on the home front and in the armed forces.

KZ7 V l28l In Memoriam JEROME BONCZKOWSKI On the nineteenth day of January, 1944, We of Union High School lost a friend, a com- panion, and one of our most promising students. Jerome Bonczkowski was well-liked and respected by every student and teacher at Union. His well-known smile, characteristic of his easy disposition, was always a pleasant feature about our halls. Jerome lost his life while skiing over the hills of John Ball Park, the day before his seven- teenth birthday. Skiing, tennis, and ping pong were among Jeromels favorite pastimes, but his trumpet commanded the greater portion of his time. He was a member of the Union band for many years and played with various dance hands from time to time. For many years to come, Jerry will be remembered by his innumerable friends. f.,.

The hustling and bustling of this first week of school to find a seat in an unorganized class is not an unusual condition, nor is the curious stare of my classmates as a new teacher makes her appearance in the hall. It was announced in home room this morning that we could carry only a half day program, which sounded like great fun. The only thing that stopped most of my pals was the idea of working the other half. Not that we aren't very energetic, of course. Jim VanOosten has cause to celebrate today as he now must carry the duties of senior class presi- dent on his broad shoulders. Our other mannish odicers are Burt, Hugh. and Paul, who must also carry their share of the burden on their equally broadened shoulders. The Turkey Trot proved to be a grand ol' time for everyone. Although we weren't in the best of spirits, having lost the Little Red Jug to the Souths erners, our souls were still at peace to know that the boys played good, fair-and-square games which entitled us to fifth-place honors on the league stand- ings. Vfvell, Dear Diary, here it is almost the end of December, and very disappointing, too, as one of our senior class projects was a total llopfthe Senior Skip Day. lVlid-term graduation last night put me in a very sober mood, thinking of the boys being given di- plomas now and in just a few months being issued G.l. equipment. The halls are being cleared of young men. Came late this morning. missed the customary Wlcdnesday morning senior meeting and must, con- sequently, attend the tardy center for a half hour after school. emoirs Spent a hilarious evening at the senior class play, HArsenic and Old Lacefi which was more than a wonderful success. The prohts were enough for the whole class to retire on. Wfe were informed today that the Fourth Wfar llond Drive with the Flying Squadron went over the top as do most of our Victory Campaigns. Ah! Those lovable janitors who took it upon themselves and decided that we should have two spring vacations. l shall cherish the memory of them forever. And, Diary, today was very happy and eventful for everyone as the basketball team came home with the bacon - bacon here represents the city regional trophy and also second place in the city league. Something new was added when hosts and host- esses were assigned to the grade lunehrooms to guide the lunchers during the noon hour. Manyjs the time their heads rebounded under the punch of a flying lunchbag. l bought my ticket to the Club Co-ed today. The grand opening is next week. Never have l seen a bunch of handsome lads and gorgeous girls having a better time than was had at the super-solid Junior Prom. Sweet music and frilly formals galore. lVly head is still pounding from the sound of all the noise made last night at the Senior lVliXer. Oh! Diary, we had so much fun playing ping pong. dancing, and shuffle board. I'll never forget it. Vllith a sparkling combination of delicious food that you didn't have to give points for and inter- esting after dinner speakers, the Honor Banquet went over with a big bang. And now, Dear Diary, I must close your cover on an eventful year of happy memories as my senior year has drawn to a close. They Pass In Review And we, the nlembers of the senior class, snap to attention and salute as the underclassmen come parad- ing past. In the van fly banners boasting of the prowess of the un- derclassmen in the bond and tin can drive. Heading the first division are the juniors. new heirs to the title of seniors, closely followed by the sophomores. The second division is headed by the fl'0Slllll0ll who are planning their high school program in prep- aration for a better postwar world. Last. but not least. 1'0lll0 the seventh and eighth graders. buck privates. who are studying hard in preparation for their part in the reconstruction period following the war. The review over, the units fall out and the seniors go to fight for the "Arsenal of Democracy" while the underclassmen march back into the Brain Arsenal to prepare to fight for a newer and better world. y I 45 l46 et9s ance wllwo, pleasel Hcreis my dimclv These requests, mixed with the mellow music of the leading orchestras, ring familiar tunes in the minds of all who attended the after-haskethall game dances, sponsored hy the junior class this year.

L65 eadin Corresponding with girls from other countries who have come to the United States to study home economics was one of the mai11 projects of our Home Economics Club here at Union this year. Making utility 'bags and knitting afghan squares are among pieces of fine work these girls did under the progressive leadership of their president. Donna Balgoojen. Contributions to the Red Cross and the Foreign Lan- guage Scholarship were highlights of the Latin Club this year. Other aetivities were after-school sales to help rnake these generous contributions plentiful and sponsor- ing a talk on lndustrial Nursing by a former member of the Latin Club. Amelia Vidro and Norma Lumlwick, the first- and second- semester presidents, made these activi- ties interesting. Malcing scrapbooks for service men at Fort Custer kept Spanish Club mem- bers busy this year. During this project the members attended educational movies about Latin America. Other activities were sales to raise money for the Foreign Language Scholarship. For the H o r i Z o n Club members, MService to the Communitya' is no idle mottog it is an actual reality. Knitting afghans, helping in the hospital. and caring for ehildren whose mothers work are a few of the projects accomplished by the girls. KNIT ONE, PURI.

Proceeds were given to the Red Cross, War Chest, and other organiza- tions. The sale of Easter Seals to help the crippled children was another activity of the club, Betty Crane was president. The Varsity Club, under the gavel of Gorden Timmvr- man, this year began a crusade to revise letter-earning standards. Along with this task the club decided to leave a memoriam to their Alma Mater. The members have labored to uphold the symbolic ideals and tradi- tions of our school by presenting high ambitions. Mem- bership is obtained in the Varsity Club by winning a major letter in any sport, all new members being initiated by charter members. It was successfully proved by the l94l-4 Hi-Y club that their creed. which states that the purpose of the Hi-Y is to create, maintain and extend through the school and community high standards of Christian character, could be applied to the life of the young American boy. Under the able direction of Mr. Reynders the club pro- vided interesting meetings for its members, and also sponsored a basketball team which entered the city Hi-Y league. The club, being very active in all branches of society, helped sponsor the Saturday night dances at the Y.M.C.A. and the Y.W'.C.A. THE PEANUT ISRITTLIC MAKERS Berglund. Finslrom, H. Crane, P.

We glorified the seoreboards by winning eleven games and losing three. Mr. Henry, who has spent eight years at Union, explained that we lost the three games because of bad passes at the South meet, over-conhdence against Central, and poor defense against Christian. However, brightening this rec- ord, we beat all three the second time the teams met. Lady Luck's absence at the first South game was most noticeable, as Marvin De Vries came down with scarlet fever and Dwight Keller contracted the flu, conse- quently we lost. For close moments in the season Bob Faulkner takes the spotlight, as his two baskets in fifty seconds ended the Creston skirmish with us in the lead.

This year only five sets were played in the city tournament because of Tech's and Creston's failure to enter. Every quarter the twelfth-grade boys in the physical fitness gym classes took five strength tests to see how much they had improved. The five tests-sit-ups, squat jumps, squat thrusts, push-ups, and pull-ups - were taken in every high school and the average of each school compared. Some of the outstanding work was performed on the sit-up exercise with Dick lfarran doing 2000, Roger Noneman 2600, and Jerry lfalicki 2006.

Groggel The bowling season opened with a bang to the tune of rolling balls and ear-splitting crashes of falling duck pins. Meeting every Monday after school was no trouble to the girls. ln the early stages of their meetings the girls were divided into four teams.

This fast game is foot- ball cut down to girlis size. All girls working for athletic awards turn out each fall to participate. Every Wednes- day after school girls meet in the gym and face each other in two lines of defense with six girls in the center at a time.

PIN GIRLS Virlro, Orth, Nlergenlllznlelg Crowley, Wiolusievky, Smith. Vanclenberg A large ball, about Hfty pairs of legs, and there you have the setting for a game called cage-ball. It may be a little hard on heads and backs but cage ball has a large backing of enthusiastic followers. ln two lines of defense on each side of a dividing line are girls sitting with hands supporting them while they give the large ball a swift kick now and then with their feet. This game bans the use of hands so a penalty is inflicted whenever players resort to them. ll' 1 P w i 0
